    According to Nicole the new pricing will be coming out this month. All the resort fees are staying the same but the vendors will be going up slightly.

     

    The rehersal dinner or welcome dinner is included. All you have to do is let her know the names of the guests attending & select the restaurant. The times are 6:30 & 8:30 for that.

     

    Met with a DigiPix photographer & am still waiting for him to email me his portfolio. I have to say I'm not impressed with their work at all. I've been in touch with Sungold & Marcia Roberts Photography as alternatives. I think I'm using Marcia because her pricing is more resonable than Sungold.

     

    I am having 60+ guests so I have to go with Aunt Ruby's for my reception. I had a chance to see how nicely it looks when its all decorated because there was a wedding going on there during my stay. They do large round tables of 8-10 ppl. If you are not happy with plain white tablecloths Tai Flora offers tablecloth rental in basically any color. Large round paper lanterns also look really nice with the whole beachy vibe.

     

    As far as the DJ you just basically tell him either exactly what songs you want played or tell him what type of music you want. You can put certain songs like the first dance & father/daughter on an IPOD or CD & just play it from there.

     

    Tai Flora has a website so you can familarize yourself with their style. Any flowers beside whats there have to be ordered & its starts to get really pricey. If there are certain colors you want in your tropical arrangement they definelty work with you. I am buying different types of ribbon to wrap around the bridesmaids bouquets so everyone has a personalized one.

     

    There is a small casino there with slot machines, a game room with TVs pool tables, etc., a cigar bar, and a gorgeous spa. You can use the hot tubs and saunas there even if you don't get a spa service (which was one of the highlights of my stay). At night there is a show on the beach with dancing & fire-breathers.

     

    The place is brand new. The people there are exceptionally nice & accomodating. Its completely "island time" there...which is why I think responses take so long. If I can answer any other questions just let me know :)

        I'm going to do a site visit at the Grand next week! So excited! Kymoya (the WC at the Grand) has been communicating with me for the past 2 weeks answering my questions and helping me set up some reservation for our mini vacation. It's my fiances birthday the day we arrive so I had her make reservations for us at the best resturant and have them bring a cake out : )

         

        Did anyone meet with Tai Flora? If so did you go to there shop? How far is it from the resort. I'm planning on getting married Janurary 2012 with 6 BM so I'm interesting in seeing flowers that are in season that time of year to get an estimate of what the whole package is going to run us.

         

        Let me know if there's any questions you would like for me to ask Kymoya. Happy Planning!

              Thank you for the info. Is there are limit to the number of guest that can come to the rehearsal/welcome dinner? I am glad to see the resort prices aren't going up.
