So I forget who asked, or when, but I looked through my notes and found some info that I received from Roxi during our last conversation in December. Note that we have quite a few people attending our wedding so it makes sense to go with the sit down reception option. Right now we have 75 people attending, it is a mix of people staying on the resort and off the resort.
If you have guests attending the wedding that aren't staying at the resort, then the pricing is as follows:
$75/person resort entry fee on day of wedding (same price for children and adults)
$75/adult reception sit-down dinner
$37/50/child reception sit-down dinner
Sit Down Reception
$60/adult for 2 hour dinner
$30/child for 2 hour dinner
1 Hour Cocktail Reception is included in my package due to the amount of rooms booked directly at Beaches
Includes sparkling wine, soda, water, and fruit punch/juices
Hot and Cold hors d'oeuvres (hope I spelled that correctly)
Sit Down Dinner - Bride and Groom choose
1 soup or salad course
2 entrees for guests to choose from
1 dessert (not including the wedding cake)
*You also have the option to include vegeatrian dishes and special meals should anyone be vegetarian or have food allergies. They allow exceptions for particular people's meals and you must let them know in advance.
That's all I have at the moment, but I hope it helps when you are trying to figure out budgeting issues! If you have any questions, I will try to answer them as best I can.
We are going with the Seaside Serenade theme and are paying the extra to carry over the theme on all of the tables for the reception. It is much less of a burden for me to do this than to stress about lugging down reception decor and all of the crazy details that I want to/would probably stress over. I didn't want to do the suitcase fight, considering the OOT bags are getting 2 suitcases of their own to go down!
