So its kinda open, not really closed in? So by using it as half tables and half dance floor, you wouldn't really have to rent the dance floor?...I thought that seemed kind of expensive. FI really thinks we should reserve SG, but I just wanted to make sure it was worth it. Thanks for clearing it up!!!


I haven't really done anything for the actual reception, as far as buying favors, decorations or anything yet. I was trying to wait until I knew about how many people were coming. I'm tired of waiting! I bought the first things tonight!...fans and starfish bottle stoppers for favors! I was so excited. I told FI that I was in super wedding mode now...ready to start buying things!

How much does it actually cost to rent a dance floor? How big is it too??

 

and lets just say I only want to use it for our first dance....

 

or is there anyway I can move to a whole other location just for our fist dance? (if we still decide to have the reception on the beach...)

I think it was like $600...maybe, to rent it. I know it was something like that, I just remember it being pretty expensive to rent it. I'm not sure where you would actually put it for the dances. Thats why I pretty much decided against using it. I think there are lots of other places you could do dancing without having to rent it. I guess, I get so confused about all of these details. Now I kinda wish we would have done a site visit.

It's 600 bucks for a white, shiny platform. It gets used a lot for receptions on the beach to make dancing easier for the guests. I'm using it because I'm trying to give my reception a "loungey" type of look. I'm looking into renting white couches to place around the dancefloor and small matching end tables with candles and stuff. But, if you are having your reception at the SS I don't think you HAVE to rent the dancefloor. I can definitely see why many people get it for the beach though.

 

And yes, I get your whole wedding mode. I've waited so long to buy things because I always felt our wedding was so far away. But now we are about 5 months out. Time to go turbo shopping!

It's COMPLETELY OPEN, winds, bugs and all, so really I guess it should be considered as an outdoor option. but there is a roof so you are okay if it rains. There are tons of pictures posted if you go back a bit. Or go to my review (link below) and in the review there is a link for "resort photos" and I took tons of photos of the resort, there are some of the seaside grill.

No you would not have to rent the dance floor, as there is a floor in the restaurant. So as long as your group's dinner tables didn't take up the entire restaurant you could dance, BUT you have to rent the restaurant privately for that. Also the new dinner policy is that you can only reserve this restaurant if capacity is less than 70% and this can only be confirmed 1 hour before your wedding.

If you eat elsewhere, you could do your first dance next to the pool, or outside of the disco (just bring the ipod dock from your room, but you'll need batteries). This isn't really officially allowed (but not not allowed either!) but as long as it was like semi impromptu and you weren't blarring music and it only takes 5 minutes I'm sure it would be fine. If you want a full out night of dancing you could go to the disco.

The brochure Landy sent me said they can confirm 1 month prior to the wedding:

THE PATIO RESTAURANT AND SEASIDE GRILL RESTAURANT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PRIVATEWEDDINGS
BUT THEY WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE HOTEL OCCUPANCY , IF THE HOTEL IS UNDER
70% OCCUPANCY THEN THE RESTAURANTS COULD BE RENTED SPECIALLY FOR THE WEDDING
WITH A FEE OF $750 USD .
The wedding planner could confirm the rent and availability of these two restaurants one month in advance , the
other locations can be reserved before than one month .

hey ladies...every time I pop in I need to catch up on at least half a dozen pages!

 

Monica - so excited for you & wishing you beautiful weather this week in Mexico :)

 

Thanks for posting the newest wedding guide (whoever that was, I've forgotten now)...I'm alittle concerned that even though we've been booked for over six months, they'll make us pay the new prices - after all, the old wedding guide had "prices subject to change without notice" written at the bottom of every page. HOWEVER, the new guide says they only do 2 weddings a day and there are 3 on my wedding day...so if they aren't abiding by the new rules, I don't think they'll expect us to. I'm optimistic and since I'm heading down in 3 or 4 weeks for my site visit, I'll get it all confirmed then. I'm not going to stress over it in the meantime - too much else to do :) I'll be sure to let you all know what Landy says...

oh - also, wanted to mention that my TA was able to find a supplier to match the rates on dreamsdays.com. It took FOREVER (2-3 months), but thrilled that it finally happened. my family has already booked with dreamdays, but good to know there are other, similarly priced options. Once I find out the name of the supplier, I'll let y'all know.

 

OH - and I want to rent lounge furniture for our reception...I know there are some other brides who want to do this as well. If you've been able to confirm the who/what/where/$$ of renting, please let me know. And if I get those details myself, I'll be sure to post them here (or in the new thread...whenever it begins - YAY!)

Neen, I want the lounge furniture!! I've emailed Landy about it but haven't heard back from her. Do u mind getting us info for it? I know the furniture would have to come from an outside vendor but my question is do we have to contact the company ourselves? Or would Landy do it? And also, what are the prices?
Thanks.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
