    I am getting married in ROR in 15 days. I emailed Chandlyn on several occasions about extras for the wedding and I just can’t get a straight answer from her!! One day it is something and another day it is something else. So I’m turning to you fellow brides… can anyone tell me without any doubt that I can pay credit card for extras or if I have to pay cash for some and can pay credit card for others?
    Meaning…

    Flowers for the BM
    Aisle runner
    DJ
    Pool reception
    Chairs with sashes
    Extra bottles of champagne

    Thanks for all the help you can provide.

      She told me I can pay with credit card or travellers cheques. The only one Im unsure of is the dj, he hasnt got back to me yet, so Im not sure what he takes. Did you get the dj the resort has (I think his name is djkprince or something like that?)

        I asked Chandlyn about the DJ and she said that I can book him when I'm at the resort... so I don't even know if I will have a DJ or not!

            Hi! I was hoping you guys could fill me in on the "poolside reception". I was wondering what the $15US includes and the details of the reception.

            Thank you so much!

                Hi Andrea,

                You have to pay $15US/person to get an open bar for the night. Meaning they will se your own little private bar with a bartender.

                    This is good to know. I never even thought that we couldn't pay for everything with Visa! Ugh, I hate travelling down there will all that cash

                      I just love the information you all provide!! Thank you!!

                      An additional question I have about the reception, do you actually have to use the open bar and pay $15/person? I'm wondering if anyone knows if we can just set up some candles and play music for dancing (using IPOD) and save the fee? I don't want to sound cheap but my FI and me are paying for all of this on our own so if I can save a few $$ for unnecessary things, I'd like to. At an all-inclusive resort I find it unnecessary to pay for a private open bar when all I want to do is use some space to dance.
