Thanks! We had the typical dinner options she gives everyone. We chose the capresse salad, tenderloin, and creme brulee. We had a bunch of people scared of fish in my group or I probably would of chose fish, but I figured if you don't eat beef you wouldn't mind the vegetarian option. The food was actually ALOT better then the resort. Ben and I have a picture with the Chef because he came out to see if everything was okay. We ordered the Creme Brulee for dessert, but because I had the monkey for a specific time I told them not to worry about it. Once the monkey arrived everyone got up and the party got started. I figured with the cake it would be fine. Nobody complained.
As for the extra hours, yes we did 3. The wedding was at 4PM and I told her I didn't want the reception to start until 6PM. (They had welcome cocktails that matched the girls dresses I didn't even ask for when guests arrived.) It seemed like we just finished eating close to 8 and it would of been over at 9PM........so we kept it going until 12AM. The options for after are the disco opens at 11PM, but for me there was a different bride at the disco every night and I didn't want to be in my dress there. I've also heard of people taking a party bus into a club in a cave in town, but that was a bit risky for my party. We partied until 12 at Bar Hughey then I changed and we went to the casino for awhile. They had a bottle of champagne, tons of flowers, and some other stuff in our room when we got back. They even filled the hot tub and put rose petals in it. Unfortunately we were so exhausted we just went to bed though! Hope this helps.....
