An email from Renee in the beginning of the process…
“Twilight wedding information needed:
Color for the roses (bouquet)
Flight information
Entertainer (ex. guitarist, violinist, saxophonist)

Here is some information that I will need to know before arrival.

I will need the following documents 60 days prior to arrival: (Please note if documents are not in our office correct before 21 days prior to arrival a late processing fee of $150 will apply.)

Notarized copies of: (Have a notary sign and stamp a photo copy of all original documents)
Birth certificates
Divorce Decree
Name Changes
Adoption Papers
Death Certificate followed with the related marriage certificate
(All documents will need to be in English if not they will need to be translated by a legal translator.)

All spa services, photographic services and reception services will need to be prebook and prepaid for before arrival so that all services will be guaranteed. I will also need a guest list with first and last names and if guest are not staying at the resort I will need to know what hotel they are staying.
Once you have ten or more people in your wedding party we recommend that you book the private dinner reception as this is the only way that we can confirm that you and your guest will all be seated together. Keep in mind that the restaurants cater to the entire resort so they may not be able to seat you all together or at the same time.

Your reception choices for all onsite guests are as follows:
$15pp after the 2nd guest basic cocktail reception includes cake, champagne, and cold hordourves
$25pp private cocktail reception includes cake, champagne, hot and cold hordourves and an open bar for one hour
$50pp dinner only reception includes a 4 course dinner with an open bar for 2 hours.
$75pp private cocktail and dinner reception includes cake, champagne, hot and cold hordourves, open bar for 3 hours and a 4 course dinner.

For all offsite guests:
$150pp Full day pass 10am-2am and private cocktail and dinner reception includes cake, champagne, hot and cold hordourves, open bar for 3 hours and a 4 course dinner.â€


Taken from a later email from Renee…


*** There is no decoration included but you will be able to add decor at an addtional cost. During the consultation at the resort with the onsite consultant you will be able to look through a book of the different floral decor available if you do not elect to purchase one of our Preston Bailey packages.***

I think the forum is having issues, cuz when I posted all that, the pics were in there, but let's see if it works now. I am pasting the IMG code from photobucket. I will also send them to you via email, but I will post for any other people that might need them...

Ok, I finally got some more info about the arches. I am not really happy about it, but what can I do at this point. Arches are not included at all, not even the basic form and you have just have to pay to decorate, you have to pay to have them at all!

 

I think it's a must b/c without a setting, you are just a bunch of people standing in the middle of the beach. I attached the pdf file showing pics of bouquet, arches, table decor, etc. The excel file is the pricing for the pdf (not sure why they can't just put it on one, but not surprised at all!)

 

Here are a pic of the chairs that are included in the beach ceremoney. They are pretty banged up, but I don't like the look of chair covers and I am not paying $10/chair for a look that I don't like. I am going to check into upgrading the chairs completely, but most likely will suck up these nasty things.

Carly, these are the same florals and prices offered at Sandals. Crazy, huh?!

As for the chairs--ick! They told me that they didn't have pictures of the plastic chairs they use for outdoor weddings, but told me that they also sometimes used chairs from one of the restaurants. I'll see if I can upload a picture.

 

Maybe they have the same type of chair at one of the Beaches restaurants and you can use those as well.

Are you picking one? I am so torn, cuz I want my arch to be decorated with fabric and shells, minimal flowers and there is nothing like that option. The WC told me to bring whatever I wanted with me, but then I still have to pay a large fee just for the arches?

Well, I decided against a beach wedding (mainly since SGOR doesn't really have a big one anyway.) I'm doing the tropical garden ceremony. I'm trying to decide between two locations, but both have gazebos. I was going to just decorate them with strings of orchids (and maybe the capiz shells.) The arch decor prices are outrageous! I didn't know that NO arch is offered for free though!!

 

One thing you can consider is using a couple of standing flower arrangementment instead of the arch. Those may be less expensive than the arch. I'll post an example...Ok, the Photobucket site is down for maintenance, so I will upload pics once it comes back up!

Carly, thanks for the info, but it sucks. I guess it helps me that I am only having 5 guests so maybe they will choose to stand. I dont know if I want an arch or not...I go back and forth....my ultimate decision will be based on the price.

I know, I am really dissappointed. I mean, I already paid $1,500 upgrade jsut so we could have the twilight time for the ceremony. It includes a bunch of extras, but now I am wondering if I should see if they can change the time so we have themoney to do these toher things. Ugh.
