WOO HOO! Best of luck MissJali!!! Please come back and share your experience with us!
Did everyone's wedding go good? looking to have my wedding there
how long have you ladies been planning your wedding? Are you paying for their decorations or bring your own? I found a site where the chair covers and all are really cheap. What is the average price so far for you ladies ceremony and receptions?
I've started my "real" planning July 2013 and my wedding is April 8, 2014. Our wedding is going to cost us anywhere between $10K to $15K (this is including mine and my fiance's flights to and from Edmonton, Canada) . Some costs are are still up in the air. I am still debating on the spluring on LED lighting, Tiffany Chairs and extending our reception for addtional 2-3 hours. Here are some details of my wedding so you have a rough idea how much it may cost you.
- Tangerine package - expecting 40ish guests
- Catholic Ceremony at the Chapel
- Reception at Bar Higuey
- Gold Package for Photographer with Tropical Pictures
- Sunset package for Videographer with Tropical Pictures
If you have any more questions please let us know. The girls on here are amazing! We are all willing to share as much information as we can. Best of luck on your wedding planning!
Right now, we have 82 confirmed. I'm expecting hopefully no more than 20 more, but we estimated somewhere between 100-120 for the final count. Last time we visited, back in June, Striker's did not require reservations, it is a large space and I'm crossing my fingers that we won't get in trouble for just taking over the place. I wanted it to be informal and formal welcome/rehearsal dinners are only free up to about 20 ppl I believe at the other restaurants. If it becomes too much, we'll probably go meet somewhere else, there are so many places to sit, maybe even at the area where they hold the evening shows, since they don't start until 10pm.
Aris quoted me about $2100 for draping all the walls in the ballroom. While I thought it would have a nice effect for the LED lighting, we might be able to do without the draping for that price. LOL. I was just told the same for the number of LED lights, 24. I've really had my eye on them though so that might be our second splurge along with the tiffany chairs.
As for the party, since it's under 50 ppl, I think one hour extra will probably be good enough. We figure after our 4 hours are up, we can just continue the party at the "Disco".
Holy cow you are expecting a lot of guests!! Good for you!!! Are any of your guests booking their package on their own and not with your travel agent? I have a few that are. I am trying to still figure out how I am going to keep track of everyone. Lol.
I have never been to the resort so Its been really hard for me to plan my wedding! I may steal your idea about having our welcome dinner at Stikers. If that doesnt work out Im glad to know that the area where they hold evening shows is another good option. Is there any other place you would recommend? may be at one of the bars that is more central? Most of my guests are staying on the adults side and I have a few staying at the family side. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we wont be scattered all over the resort.
The LED lighting will def. have a beautiful effect. I am for sure splurging on lighting and draping if we are extending our reception a few more hours. my WC has emailed me back yesterday and said to extend our reception its gonna cost us $15/pp PLUS extra $$ if we want to extend our hours with the DJ. I am thinking we will pass on extending the DJ and just use our Ipod and have a play list play from there.
Haha yes, My original plan is to move the party to the disco but after really thinking about it, my Fiance and I want to keep our wedding more intimate, and since we're sprluging on drapping and LED lighting we should just keep everything at one location. Once we start moving locations, I think everyone will be tired and just go back to their rooms to sleep. lol.
