I haven't gotten any information from the resort yet, but I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who has done a combination of the Cliffs/Villas for their wedding...is that allowed? I've read you can only have the same number of outside guests as you have staying at the Villas, but I'm wondering if this applies to people staying at the Cliffs? If they are connected, you would think the rules wouldn't apply? How would the reception work? What is included in the free wedding package? We would love to just rent out the villas, but I don't think some of my guests could afford that, and I want to offer them the price of the Cliffs.
I'm a little lost right now and could really use some info! I appreciate any details!
@wilsonj2: We are also getting married at Moon Dance Villas and utilizing the Cliffs for overflow guests.
I am not sure about how the 50/50 rule applies pertaining to the Cliffs but I think it might depend a great deal on your numbers. If you were to only have 5 people staying at the villas and 50 staying at the Cliffs and had your wedding on the beach that would not allow Moon Dance to host another wedding that day at either resort due to the cliffs almost being nearly full to capacity and their one wedding a day policy (which I love!!!). I think they might also take into consideration how many other guests would be at the Villas and how a wedding of 50 off-site guests would impact the other potential 35 guests at the villas. Moon Dance is very accommodating so if you let them know your situation I am sure they would be able to find some way to work things out. You could also have your ceremony at the Cliffs which I hear is stunning.
Included in the free wedding package is the complimentary services of a wedding coordinator, a wedding ceremony, marriage officer, license, paperwork, and bouquet (Up to $100) and boutonniere for the bride & groom. The florist they use is Floral Fantasies http://www.floralfantasiesjamaica.com/. You can get pricing information from them. If you choose the all-inclusive food option then there is no additional cost for the reception food or beverages but you will need to pay for tables ($10) and chairs ($2-$12.50 each depending on what you want).
Sorry about the long response but I have been so excited about my wedding and I've been doing A LOT of research to make sure I cover everything. If there is anything else you need to know just ask.
