    Hi There,

     

    My invites just had the week of the wedding trip on them (no even the wedding day) and a URL to my wedding website where I update all the details for people. I plan to send out an info package about 2 months before for people that has an agenda of events included in it with time and location of the wedding. I also plan to have a welcome gathering the day I get there so everyone can come together and meet and I will then tell everyone the time and location of the ceremony and reception.

     

    Hope this helps : )

    Question, since you don't get to choose where your having your ceremony and reception until 90 days out, what on earth did you put on your invites?
    Ceremony at Moon Palace
    4 O'clock PM
    Reception to follow, location to be announced
    ?? I mean when did people find out things like "at the beach gazebo" or "tucan terrace?". Did you put the finalized locations on your wedding website? OOT bag itinerary insert? Was the ceremony location already confirmed by invitation time and you're just waiting on reception and other party venues?
    Yes, as you can see this it the one thing where the timing really threw me for a loop! Lol. Thanks


     


    Resort and wedding day booked. Here we go.

      That is exactly where I was and it is so gorgeous. you are going to love it! The extra hour is 60 a table I did it myself but if you aren't having pictures you should probably just do a 3 hour reception. i had the cocktail right in between the tucan gazebo and tucan terrace so it worked for me because i was doing pictures and i wouldn't want to miss my reception lol. i did get 10 per table and I had 28 so it was 3 tables and cost me 180 to extend the 2 hour reception to 3. but the cocktail hour is boring anyway lol and no one really like anything except the pizzas i added lmao. just skip it - i think. put the 240 for extending the 4 tables to the PSAV it is worth it. my ceremony was at 4 and cocktail at 5 and reception 6-9 i don't think they let you do parties after 10 anyway so have your reception 7-10.

       

      email PSAV and never believe anything you read on the websites lol. email the vendors directly or your wc they change their prices whenever they feel like it lol. if you want my emails with them with the prices just email me ladydi1844@aol.com. I originally was just doing one location also.

       

      i loved sunrise and when i was there it was pretty empty during the week so if we got to the restaraunt when it opened i got us tables together but it was hard if we weren't there when it opened and we had to split up. The chinese place in sunrise lobby monohana is GREAT but not really that fancy. In sunrise you only have the 2 buffets and monohana in the lobby but there is a steakhouse and seafood place outside in the pool area. i did a big dinner one night at the steakhouse and it was pretty good. If i was having unlimited functions there is a nice area at Los Tacos which is by the grand section. it is all lit up at night and you can have a buffet there. but any of the terraces are beautiful and you can have something set up at any of them. nizuc has arrecifies where i had my welcome dinner and a lot of people like the food there it is a brazilian steakhouse and once u are at nizuc they seem to have a lot going on in their lobby and they have a place to sit and have dessert and coofee or espresso. the carribean restaraunt is beautiful and overlooks the ocean also at the grand side. i don't know much about the private functions because i had only one lol but i think any terrace would be gorgeous and they give you the same buffet food no matter where you have it. oh yea the italian restaraunt Traitorria had great food also -it's at the golfcourse though and there were bugs and the only way there is a golfcart but they do have big ones and they come regularly but the other sections there is a big bus every few minutes

      I told Joannis I wanted the Tucan Gazebo for the ceremony and Tucan Terrace for the reception. I will definately ask about that extra hour. How late did your reception go? My ceremony is at 6. I am not having pictures after the ceremony (well whatever they do with Package A...plus 15 minutes they are giving me because I tried to the negotiate price ;)

       

      I have 28 people including Tim and I. That should be it. So if its 8p/per table its 3.5 tables lol. Did you get 10 people per table?

       

      Thanks for the info on the restaurants!! Which other areas would be good for functions? Our room block is sunrise.

       

      I thought PSAV for 4 hours was $404? I will email them now. $234 is worth it.
