Hi Lilypod-

 

The complimentary package comes with a tech to play music at your ceremony- they set up speakers- you just have to provide a CD and list of songs to be played when.  If there is only 4 of you I don't think you need anything other than the horse and photographer! You may want a videographer if you want to show everyone else your ceremony when you return (I just had my future brother in law record the ceremony).  Everything is so gorgeous the way it is!! I made starfish raffia decorations for the aisles but that was all I added to the ceremony on the beach! :)

 

Let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Hi can I just ask as we are having the complimentary package and I wanted to add horse and carriage and photography. Do I need to pay for something to play the music on for my walking to the beach and when we walk away after we're married?
There is only four of us travelling could anyone think of any other must have extras that we might need?
Thanks in advance x

    You can probably use your iphone- I felt it was easier giving a cd at the meeting and then not having to worry about getting the WC the iphone before the ceremony and making sure it was returned to me.

        Hi everyone! I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but I can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere. For those of you that have had your wedding already this year AND YOU MET THE 75 Room night minimum AND YOU HAD MORE than 30 guests, was there a per person fee for dinner for you additional guests?

         

        From what I understand, once you meet the 75 room nights, you get 3 hours of free functions for each day you are there. On your wedding day, most people use this for 1 hr cocktail and 2 hour reception dinner. My question is, is this only for up to 30 people? If so, what is the fee for extra people? lets assume I will have 100 guests.

         

        Thanks for your help in advance! I did just do a site visit and will be posting photos soon (but somehow I missed asking this question - lol)

        No they do not charge you per guest if you get the free 3 hour event.  What they will charge you is per table after those 2 hours that are included in the dinner reception.  For example- if you have your wedding at 4, cocktail from 5-6 and reception from 6-10- you will pay per table (I think it's like $80-100) per hour for anything over those 2 hours that are included in your "freebees"  The 30 persons you are referring to is the dinner reservation in a restaurnat that you could use in lieu of a private reception.

          Thank you so much! That is much clearer. Just to make sure, do you know if this applies even to the Cowie weddings? I guess I'm confused as to WHEN someone would pay the $300/table charge that is shown with the collections. I suppose it is only for people who don't make the 75 nights and have to pay for the reception dinner?

            Just as Shan 0487 said, you only pay for however many extra hours you go over. It is $60/table/hour. Also if you decide to have a private reception outdoors and want the plated option over buffet, it's an extra $30/person. The only thing we don't know is if they decide to change the prices for 2014, as it seems that they started charging for things in 2013 that weren't charged to brides in 2012. The prices are always different and they are very inconsistent.

              Curious how everyone chose to handle the group bookings for their travel. Did you just go through the hotel directly and sign their group contract?

               

              I was originally going to do so, but the group rate they gave me is pretty ridiculous. This is what I was given for November 2013 (SLOW season)

               

               

               

              All Inclusive

               

              AUG 25/13 - DEC 23/13

               

              Room Type

              SGL

              DBL

              TPL

              QUA

              5th.

              6th.

              CHL

              Superior Deluxe - Garden View

              343

              191

              178

              172

               

               

              61

              Superior Deluxe - Ocean View

              365

              202

              189

              183

               

               

              61

               

               

              According to this, a room with 2 adults would be $382. On expedia, you can get the same room for $350. Also, if you book direct, by the chart above, 4 adults in a room would cost $688 where on Expedia - it's still just $350. Everywhere else charges PER ROOM, not per person.

               

              I hate to ask people to pay more money to go thru the hotel directly, but with a planned guest attendance of 100+, I need to make sure I earn the 75 room night benefits, and still allow everyone to get their resort credits, etc.

               

              So can I use a travel agent instead and are their rates more in line with Expedia/cheap caribbean? Are you still able to earn the function benefits/upgrades? Has anyone tried asking for a better group rate direct from the hotel?

                Sorry, totally missed the 30 person part. I don't believe they charge you for extra people over the 30, but not 100%. I had 35 guests, including ourselves and 3 babies and there weren't any extra charges for that.
