Confused about ROR reception/dinner

Recommended Posts

Im really confused and I am hoping you all can help me. Are ALL of the receptions at the ROR an additional cost. I wondered why everyone had an additional dinner at night on the beach or the poolside but I think I just realized that the Steak house is dinner only! Is this correct? I though you could do the first dance here and stuff but i cant find this info on any threads.

 

 

For the beach reception. How much is the cost. On some of my papers it says $55 and the other ones say $15. I dont need the dinner seeing that we will have already ate at the steak house but what am i paying for for $15. Does this include chairs and tables, and the open bar? For the open bar does someone actually bring you drinks cause I dont want to pay $15 for our guests to have to go get thier drinks when they can do that for free. Does anyone know how much it is for the table/chairs set up and the open bar for the beach reception? Also was it noisy during the nightly entertainment.

 

Another question how did you set up your greeting dinner for you guests at the specialty resturant.

 

Thanks ladies. Im so confused. Dont know if I should have it at the resort or at Ruins at the falls or evitas. I like Evitas cause she gives good rates and is kind.

I'm getting married at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios and I was confused by this as well. The rehearsal dinner (or welcome reception) is actually a plated dinner that has a preset menu and is served at a location other than one of the main restaurants.

 

The 30-min cocktail reception is cold hordourves only and costs $15 per person. This fee is waived if you have booked 10 rooms or more. I'm not sure about the set up with this as far as chairs and whatnot.

 

@Maureen: I was told just last night, that there's a SLIM chance my entire group will be able to sit together at one of the restaurants after the ceremony (we'll have approx. 30 people). The rationale I was given was that because it's a couples only resort, they like for their restaurants to have a romantic, quaint atmosphere, and 30 guests sitting together wouldn't allow for that. I protested because I KNOW I've heard other brides say they were able to do this with no problem. I just let it go and figured we'd deal with it when we get there. I am going to be HIGHLY upset though if we're not accomodated.

If I wanted a private dinner at Plantations I read it's $500 for 2 hrs and $1000 for 4 hrs. Is there any additional cost per person?
