    Hey Danielle,

     

    So im getting married Nov 11, i ended up booking the Lavender Lux collection for the reception which im having on the Carribeno Terrace (rooftop). that includes decor for all the tables and flower centerpeices.

    We also contacted Katie from Zuniga who provides additional decoration. We added on more candles to the tables, a dance floor, lights, flags with lighting and a few other things to add to the ambiance when the sun sets.

    I believe we got the diamond package for the DJ and we will get a projector and screen to play pictures throughout the night. DJ also provides the speakers and the lighting system

    Photography and Videography we are using smile market and Im hoping we get del sol for a TTD session closer to the wedding.

     

    For the ceremony, we choose the complementary package and added hte horse and carrage, a special design canopy by Zuniga, and violin player for me walking down the isle.

     

    Im bringing with me favors and stuff to hand out during the ceremony and reception.

     

    Hope this helps.

    I am trying to work, photos, video, flower changes, functions, etc. and info is hard to get.

     

    How did you all find off-site vendors?

     

    Thanks,

      Hi Lauren

       

      I went through a local travel agency that i have been using for years. they signed a room contract on my behalf. Whenever you use an agent, you should know that they make a commision of about 15% on each booking. My agent gave up about 8% per booking so that my per night cost decreased by about $30. I think the hotel gave me rates of 360/per night per room, now its 335. WHen you add flight (depends on time of year and location) it should range from 1500-1800 pp for 7 nights. We are 4 months out now its about 1550, my guests that booked 3 months ago paid 1750, so the prices do change.

       

      :)

However, many of the rates are coming in 300 per person including air . I was hoping for closer to 200 . Is 300 accurate or high Please help !! If people don't mind if they can share their rates including air per person per night ! Your all the best !

        Thank you so much Curly Bride. I am so surprised you are this far along. Now I feel like I am behind the power curve.

         

        I need to move a little quicker I guess. Please keep me posted on how things are progressing and I will do the same for you.

            Hello everyone!

            I am trying to decide whether to get the OceanFront room or the OceanFront Concierge Room.

            Does anyone know the difference between the two types, other than the short list of amenities?

            Like are the rooms different sizes, in different areas of the resort? Are the amenities you get with the Concierge even worth it?

            Thanks!!

              Does anyone know the pricing and/or have a direct contact for JSAV?  I saw that they have a package that includes lighting.....Does anyone know what kind of lighting?  Is it the uplighting for the reception room or just lighting for where the DJ is set up?

                Also,  is PSAV an offsite vendor?  Or are both companies onsite?

                      My hubby and I were upgraded to OceanFront Concierge, but didn't really use any of the concierge amenities. We were going to use the free 15 minutes couples back massage, but since we already had so many credits, we just used our credits for the 45 minute full body massage and didn't feel like the free massage was necessary. We actually did use the free "romantic" dinner, but I don't know if that was available to us because we were concierge, or if all newlyweds got that. The room size is going to be the same either way.
