      Hi there...I'm getting married there in June and we're having about the same amount of people and I remember seeing photos of a ceremony at the gazebo and I knew there wouldn't be enough room for all our guests. It appears that the gazebo is pretty close to he actual hotel. I'm guessing your guests should be able to walk through the hotel to Central Beach instead of all the way around?

        Girls...are you extending your reception by an hour? I'm having a hard time swallowing the additional fee when I have 50 people who have already booked...and is there also an additional fee for the DJ on top of that? I'm just worried with a seated dinner that'll only leave us with like an hour and 15 minutes to dance which is a waste of a DJ in my opinion! And if we're all having a blast I feel bad moving everyone to another location to continue partying! Is there a fun bar or anything on property? Or can anyone tell me what sort of entertainment is offered at the resort on a Saturday night? I would ask my WC but I can't even get simple wedding related questions answered so I doubt she'll be able to help me on guiding me here!

          Hi - I'm having a similar issue with communication... who are you working with?  I think I'll likely extend my reception for the hour (I'll have approx 50-60 guests also) for the reasons you list above.  I'm not doing the DJ, but I assume that would be an additional fee also... it all quickly adds up!  Are you hosting your reception at Central beach also?

              We ended up extending it right then and there. It was pricey, but we were having so much fun and didn't want it to end! Haha.  The resort itself is pretty quiet later in the evening, the night we got married there was a band in the lobby, but other than that not much for entertainment.

                So if we decide the night of then we can? What about the DJ? Was that a separate fee and did he stay without any problem? Hmmm

                  Does anyone know if we're allowed to release sky lanterns at the end of the night at our resort?

                    OMG, I'm glad (but not glad) to hear I'm not the only one having communication issues... my wedding is pretty far away (Feb. 2014), but I still have so many questions I need answered!  My WC was super responsive in the beginning, but now that everything is signed, I'm hearing nothing!  Super frustrating...

                     

                    @Billandstina:  The checklist/sheet that I received from my WC says that the cost for the DJ for an extra hour is $150.
