    Great ideas for the loot bags! The only thing I wanted to get for sure was some commerative shot glasses for all our guests. I found the coolest ones on pinterest, but cant seem to see where they came from and no place I search has what I'm looking for. Do you actually have to have 20 people for the Italian restuarant or is it that you just have to pay for 20? I wasn't sure about that. We might have 20, but until everyone books their flights, I wouldn't bet money on it. I do think that the standard chairs come with white bows btw, but I'm not sure. I asked for a picture of the basic beach setup with no upgrades and the chairs had white bows.

      Wow, this site has been great to read through!  We are just in the preliminary planning stages for our wedding next year and this has given me lots of great ideas!

      Does anyone know if the DJ package comes with the dance floor?  Also, I've emailed our wedding coordinator (Elsa) but haven't heard back yet to see if the Classic Package with a private reception includes an Open bar...any ideas?

        Torie,

        I believe the Dance Floor is separate from the DJ.  As far as the open bar, that I'm not sure about.  I hope so!  Let us know what you find out.  Where are you having the ceremony?

          Definitely on the beach, but haven't decided between the Central or North!  I read someone's review that said the Central beach was more private, which would be nice!  In that same review she mentioned that the shots were flowing during the reception which leads me to believe it is an open bar (which is AWESOME, and what it should be!!) What are your plans?  It's sort of scary planning a wedding over a computer, isn't it?!

            Yes, it definitely is scary!  Our ceremony is on the North Beach...I'm hoping that its the more secluded one, LOL, wish I knew! :)  I'm anxiously awaiting Billandstina's review when they return.   Have you decided on a lot of details yet?  I just booked my December wedding in April, so I haven't had a whole lot of planning time.  Some days it seems so far away, but others I don't feel like I have nearly enough time to get everything done!

              I hear you!  We just changed our date from June next year to April, but so far haven't done much planning other than researching outside vendors for flowers and photography and different ideas for what I can bring for centerpieces to save some money.   I'm on maternity leave with twins right now and go back to work in September, so i'm hoping to have majority of decisions and plans made before then since I can't see myself having much time after that!

              Which package are you going with?  I'm wondering what the 'decorated special isle runner' is....I saw that someone said it was a red carpet....

                I don't think that it's red. I asked for a picture of the standard beach set up that is included in our package-the classic pkg...it looked like a plain sand color runner. I can't figure out how to upload images on my iPad. If I can figure it out ill post it. ;). Also, I'm just going with the Standard centerpieces for the reception, she sent me a pic of them as well and they will work just fine for me, as I don't want to worry about traveling with anything or paying for an upgraded one.

                  oh that's great news! Shows what I know, I didn't even know there were center pieces included, I thought everything was additional!  I haven't gotten a response back from my WC with any information yet, so hopefully I will soon!

                    Centerpieces aren't included girls...thus the chaos I'm in 12 hours from flying out! The most basic (bowl of water +1 flower) is $85!! Outrageous! We're hauling all our decor down there which I know is worth it but its all over our floor and I need it to magically jump into our suitcases with our clothes perfectly so I can be FINISHED!! Ahhhhhhh

                      oh lovely....Here's our conversation:  Is there any type of centerpiece on the reception tables?...................................8 people per table, attached you will find a picture of the standard centerpiece.  I'm going to have to follow up with her to confirm this.  Did they tell you there was one also BillandStina?
