    I I didn't go with a package. We just upgraded our cake. I made reservations for dinner at Mario's after our cocktail reception and we were in a section that was quiet and private.

    Did youhave a large party of people?

      Hey ladies,

       

      I know that I haven't been active on this thread in quite a while but things have been quite BUSY for me. Work has been tremendously busy, I had to move, and we are on our way to the wedding! I will post the beginning of my planning thread and try to update again soon. Roxy came through for me and she and I actually got along quite well as long as I presented her with the facts and information that I already had.  I'm excited to see things in person, I hope it looks like, or better, than the pictures in my head. Anyway, I will try to answer any questions that I can as soon as possible. 

       

      Good luck!!!

        I'm new to the thread and have questions that haven't been answered so I'm hoping you can help. So does anyone have a sample menu? From this thread I see it is $50 per person for 2 hours and $75 for three hours. I don't know what the menu is though. Other resorts have sent us sample menus. Can someone tell me how good the food was? Can someone tell me the policy for seating everyone in a restaurant instead of private? What is the host bar? Everything is all inclusive so is there better alcohol? Can someone clarify the iPod dock? I see $75 per hour some places and $150 per hour on other posts I'm familiar with the property otherwise having been there before two months ago.To be honest I didn't like any of the wedding locations. Other resorts have much much nicer ceremony locations. I always imagined getting married on the beach would give all guests magnificent views. This is not the case here. I saw the two gazebos and they were ok. I didn't like the area in front of Schooners at all as guests don't have a few of the ocean and the "ocean front" wedding area they offer isn't ocean front. It's set back on the sand not close to the water at the end of the property near the Caribbean pool. Just know that it's not ocean front and it is next to the pool so everyone will be yelling. I watched about 5 weddings at the property while I was there for ideas and felt bad for a lot of those people. Does anyone know if there are added locations now that the new Key West resort is open? We are looking at having the wedding off property now. Has anyone done this or have suggestions? . Just FYI we had photos taken with two different photographers at two different times and different days while there. We were very unhappy with the pics. We have been to 5 all inclusive resorts and have had professional pics done at each. They are all amazing except Beaches. My advice is to figure out a way to not use their photographers. They aren't good and insanely expensive. I'm bringing one with me. I see others here have expressed the same. We are choosing Beaches based on it being all inclusive and allowing kids and this is the only resort on the island that allows it. We are just looking to make the most of that decision. Is the beach in front of the property considered to be owned by Beaches or is it public domain? I would assume that if it is public I can hire an outside company to do a set up on the beach? My other advice to people on this board is to book in the Italian village. I was not impressed with the rooms in the French and Caribbean.

          Did youhave a large party of people?

          There were 26 of us total so it was a good size but no too big.

            Wow that is a lot all at once. I hope your day is more beautiful than you can imagine. I look fwd to hearing all about it. Glad all worked out for you with Roxi. I am going to search back for your conference call with her so I can get pointers. My call is Saturday. Are you leaving for Turks today? If so..safe and happy travel.

              Nice that your party was able to fit at Mario's. Save money. Meant to ask you what you meant by upgrading cake.

                If anyone is interested in getting married in 2015, the rates were posted up until June 2015. We just booked our wedding for May 9th 2015 at 3PM.

                  I am still at Beaches and we were upgraded to stay in the Key West Village! It's AH-MAZING here! They said that the Key West will be available for weddings starting in November, I would highly recommend it. It is very quiet over here and the views are splendid. The Sky Restaurant is also supposed to be a new location for receptions, you would not be disappointed.  I will try to post pics later, but just had to chime in. The food at the reception was delicious and my guests were all extremely pleased.  Our wedding day was wonderful and I have absolutely no complaints, it all came together nicely and the staff is unbelieveably nice. I would give Beaches a thumbs up just for the staff and the views!! Be back in touch later ladies!
