    Hello all :

     

    I  have read in other threads that you can have a private reception at the Plantation restaurant in Ror for the cost of $1000 renting it for 4 hours, but i read also in all the posts that the cost for a private reception is $55p/p , thats when i get confused :

     

    Is it $1000 and that includes your open bar , dj and meal for the 4 hours for all of your guests or you have to pay on top of that the fee of $55 ,, does that make sense ?

     

    Sooo confused,, : (

      There are 3 types of dinner receptions:

       

      1.) semi-private which is free and is a sit down dinner.  I believe this dinner is from 6:30 - 8:30 and does not include open bar (wine is served at dinner)

       

      2.) private reception at the Plantation restaurant - $1000 for 4 hours or $500 for 2 hours - sit down dinner and an extra $10 per person if you want an open bar

       

      3.) private poolside or beach reception - $55 per person - buffet style and includes open bar

       

      If you opt to do the semi private dinner you can do an after dinner reception where you can dance and lounge around at either the poolside or on the beach for $15 per person which includes bar, set up of table/chairs and tikki torches/lights.

          I am less  than a month away and still haven't decided. I am toying with the idea of the Plantation for 4 hours and setting everything up there so we don't have to move, Right now our list is at almost 50 and STILL increasing so the Plantation may be a better option for us.

            Wow,, 50 is a big number for a private reception, so far i only have 23 that are coming for sure,, if i keep my number under 30 i might do the private poolside thing at $55 p/p , if its over that im more inclined to reserve the Plantation. The only issue now is that im like 7 months away and fricking out that when my time comes to reserve nothing will be available,, where are you getting married,, are you not worried what you want might not be available then ???

              Nope, not worried about it. My whole mantra takes after the Jamaicans "no worries". I'm not stressing about it. Wedding is in three and a half weeks.

                I was told by the previous WC that you must have at least 40 guests to have the poolside reception but I also read somewhere that it was 20 guests so I'm not sure what's right.  I plan on having the poolside reception as well....I'm expecting between 40-45 guests.  I was also told by the sales dept in Mexico to book your reception as soon as possible to reserve it for your wedding however, now I'm receiving word from other brides that the new WC at ROR is saying that the policy has now changed and you can't book your reception until you get to the resort....doesn't make sense to me.

                  How are they deciding which bride gets what? The first bride to get married or do they flip a coin? This whole system is weird to me but whatever I guess. I actually would prefer a lunch reception and I hate having to wait to get there to see which one I can get. I don't like the idea of surprises or extra added costs.

                    Okay I agree this is the part that confuses me, I am okay with waiting until I am there, but depending on where we are I would like different things/ decor so I am really confused as to what to do. I still have until the first week of Jan but really that is only four months away!

                      I understand completely, im almost 8 months away and already fricking out because i have no control over anything ! I thought this wedding was going to be stress free,, i do not know if i woul dhave preferred to take her of all the arrangements myself.

                      Anyhow good luck, and make sure to let us know how it went, im sure its going to be amazing ~
