Tracy thanks for all your details!  I'm glad someone is getting married soon so we can get a review.  As far as I know there has only been one posted on here since ownership changed.  Let me know if anyone has seen any others.

Have I mentioned I love this site??

Tracy are you doing the buffet diner at Pure?? Because if so I will definitely need to change to the buffet!! And for the DJ wouldn't you have to pay what it cost for the addtional hours?? I believe that's $150. I really do hope they are very reasonable about the flowers and centerpieces.

Can we request the DJ to play an hour longer the night of the event for the same price we paid upfront? I'm not sure if I need three hours or four.

 

Did anyone get clarification on how many centerpieces are provided in the Eternity package?  If it's only one I might use my flowers and the bridesmaid flowers as centerpieces.

 

I'm getting married on the beach. Does that package include the cost to set up the for the wooden four post canopy on the beach?

We opted for the buffet-but it's not in one of their a la cart restuarants.  Well it kind of is.  I don't know if she has mentioned the option of using the restuarant "Las Olas" for your reception.  This restuarant is their open air daytime dining resturant that looks out over the beach.  It is not open to guests in the eveings.  I believe they close it down for the day at 6pm. 

 

We had originally wanted the Festival Terrace-but when I saw some pictures of it-I talked to Pilar and we agreed that it might be a little too small for 50 people with the buffet and a dancefloor-so she recommended this.  Our Ceremony is at 5-and then the cocktail hour-and she has assured me that the restuarant will be closed to all other resort guests and set up for us by the time our reception starts.  (And there is no extra charge since the devine package includes a private reception-even though it is technically at one of the restaurants)

 

For us-this was perfect because we wanted something that was outside-but still had some coverage in case of bad weather. 

 

I don't believe they will let you do the buffet option at one of the a la cart resturants-but you never know-it's worth it to ask.

Mischaka-From my understanding-the $150 per additional DJ hours only applies if you go over the 4 hour package price.  The extra 2 hours I wanted for the DJ was kind of a price shock for me considering with taxes-it's almost $800...but I'm still trying to get her to lower that.  I'll let you know how it goes!

Well that's not fair even if it included in the package!! That's alot. But we are only going to need an additional hour. I'm not sure what they had left but since I had just switched to this resort and someone else is getting married that same day I was given the option to have the reception at Pure or Cinque Terrace. And to have the ceremony at the Fountain. And the person who is getting married that day will have about 70 people! Since I didn't want to change my date I took whatever they had left.
