      Hi ChrisieAnn,

       

      I'm flying a photographer out there with me and I'm getting the Eternity package.  I know that people have said that they don't allow substitutions for the package anymore, but I've noticed in the past they have let people substitute the photo package for the caribbean trio during their cocktail hour.  I'm still going to try to see if I'm persistent in asking if they will allow me to do this.  

       

      I'm having my reception from 7-11.  I've read from past posts that there is an extra charge for every hour over three hours, but I am going to pay that because I am already spending a lot of money for the reception set up and I want it to be worth it.  I noticed in the wedding book though that it says receptions can go as late as 11:30...so I'm not sure if you would have to get you times moved up in order to do that.

       

      O am also doing my cocktail hour at the blue beach bar, from reviews I've read of brides that have been there that is the best location.  I have read that the orange lounge is in an odd and non private place.  I had planned to do my cocktail hour there originally but then changed it.

      Since a lot of ppl are getting outside photographers, are you all going with a package, or doing a la carte? I have the divine package.

       

      How long are everyone's receptions???  My schedule is 6pm beach ceremony, 7pm cocktail at blue beach bar, 8-11 reception in bamboo room. I think 3 hours is short for a reception, was anyone able to get an extra hour?? 

       

      From brides who have been there, what location is better for a cocktail hour, the blue beach bar or the orange lounge?

       

      And, lastly, has anyone done a deep sea fishing excursion?? And what company did you use??

       

      Thanks for you advice!!! :)

        Hi ChrisieAnn,

        Yes the blue bar is perfect for the cocktail hour.  It is secluded and just beautiful.  After our reception we all went to the Scores bar and everyone had a blast.  They will not allow things to go past 1130 for the reception.  I also got an outside photographer and asked if I can use the photographer from the package for the trash the dress the next day and they allowed me to do that but I guess that is when they started saying they will not substitute.

          Has anyone had their reception on either the beach or the pool deck, or seen pictures of this besides the two in the package? They don't seem like popular options.

            Christie, my reception is from 7-11 and so far from my budget sheet im not being charged for an extra hour.  If you want the dj for the 4th hour, you do have to pay for that, but i dont think you need to pay for the drink service or for the room.

                Hi Cortney -

                 

                I'm interested in having our reception on the beach too.  I've emailed Ana and asked her about it, but haven't received a response.  I'll let you know what I find out.  The wind seems to be the main issue with an outside reception.

                 

                Best,

                Jen

                     My ceremony is 5:30, cocktail hour from 6-7, and then reception from 7-11.

                    When I had to fill out the paperwork when I first booked and put down the deposit, I spelled all that out on the forms.  No one ever questioned the times I chose.
