Ginamapi and Vane23 - Sorry don't mean to sound like a broken record but do you recall if the contract that you signed have anything about not allowing outside vendors to be on the resort grounds?

 

Renee is not getting back to me. I really do not have the money to pay an extra 1k for my photographer to be there.

 

Anything helps.

 

Thanks,

Van

Hello ladies,

 

I am interested in hard rock but I have not been able to get a breakdown of prices.  If you have any pricing information, please post or message me.  I think it is crazy for me to book and then find out the prices. Every other hotel has given me the breakdown in detail.

 

 Any Wedding Package (Especially Complimentary)
1. Are there any setup fees associated with the ceremony?
2.  How many chairs included in package? How much are additional chairs?
3. Is music included in ceremony? It says musical selection is subject to availability. Can anyone tell me their current prices for musical selection during the ceremony (I know this may change).
4. It says that the cake will be modified for the number of guests. Are there any associated charges for cake for a certain number of people? Are there any charges for plates and utensils?
5. We are doing a symbolic wedding. Does complimentary package come with an officiant of the ceremony?
6. It says "In the case of inclement weather, certain services will not be extended." If the wedding location is outside and it rains, what happens?
7. For the champagne, are there charges for glasses? I saw on the posting that the champagne was not good. Anyone have prices for alternatives
Dinner at Restaurant
8. Does the 30 people at a restaurant include us?

9. What was anyone's experience?

Private Reception
10. With private functions what are the additional costs? What is the cost for the sound system for 3 hours? Cost for decoration? Cost for room rental? Cost for plates, utensils, glasses? Cost for DJ? Any other costs associated with private function?
11. Is there a cost for bringing our own decorations?

Promotions

12. In the email, it says that promotions can change at any time. Has anyone had their promotion changed? If so, what?

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner! I had a conference with Renee on Tuesday. We are having our ceremony at 2pm. We havent decided which beach location we would prefer yet. After speaking with Renee we decided to do our cockatil reception at 4pm followed by our reception from 5-8. Then our plan is to have all of our guests get comfortable if they choose to and head to a bar or the club. Our plan is to have every event outside but are waiting on a few more pictures to be sent before we decide which location we want for each. As of right now it looks like we have a little over 100 people with deposits down...we def were not planning on that many attending lol. So we do qualify for the unlimited functions. I have the same concern as you about the weather and it being windy or cold for outside events. I am not sure what to expect in terms of weather so I plan on researching that. I will def make sure to bring all documents to ensure they dont try to change the rules or throw extra charges in there anywhere so thanks for that info. We do plan on using the in house photographer. What is your plan for that? I was unaware that they charge for every chair over 30 with the complimentary package. I dont know if you have heard the same thing. Renee also told me that they charge to set up any decoration that you bring yourself. $200 to set up ceremony decor and $100 per table for reception decor and only staff is allowed to set up any decorations. I dont know if anyone has any info on this because I havent seen this info before. Are you going with a decoration package or do you plan on bringing things yourself? Also, Renee informed me that she is no longer handling our wedding because she will only handle weddings from the 16th to the end of the month for the Hard Rock. Were you told the same? Have you spoken to her since your conference? Thanks!

Love this idea, I didn't realize that mock cakes could be so nice. When I did my site inspection, Nancy suggested that we do this but I wasn't too sure about it. After seeing this picture I may just do it.

So I've been communicating with Jacqueline, my onsite WC, and I must say that I am very happy with her. She replies promptly and so far has answered all my questions. Regarding unlimited events, she mentioned that there is no limit to the length of time of the event. The only time limitations apply to outdoor events not being able to be past 11pm and indoor events past 12am. If you are having an indoor private function and wish to have it past 12am, you can do so at an additional charge.

 

The new photography company is definitely Smile Market.

 

The wedding collection I selected was the Sapphire, which includes a huppah covered with blue fabric. The fabric included in the collection is a solid color not the shear fabric that was shown on their website and power point presentations. The shear fabric is an upgrade so it appears that I'll be paying extra for this. Once Jacqueline lets me know the cost of this upgrade I will let you guys know.

Hi, so glad your wedding went so well!! Congratulations! Did they give you options for a DJ or do they just have one? I am getting married in September and havent heard anything yet from the wedding coordinator.

 

Thanks!
