Hi.  I did not pay for extra chairs, they give you as many as you need.  you pay extra for cake and champagne that is needed above what is included in the package. So when the package says its for 4, 8, 16 people etc, they mean there will be enough cake and champage for that number of people.   i still took the basic package and paid $100 for an extra tier of cake and i decided to just use the one bottle of champagne as not everyone in my groups drank alcohol.  However, at the dinner i was told that there were now two bottles included!  bonus!

 

I did buy my own purple chair ties you see in my pictures as they were very expensive at the resort.  the white chair covers were included though, again, as many as you need.

I hate to ask you, but where did you find your dress?!?! I love your dress cheesy.gif and maybe you don't want to share that... but I asked anyway LOL! Maybe you can point me in a direction to find nice custom bridal gowns.

Thanks!!!

they provided the white table linens.  I brought in my own purple napkins and chair ties though so i can set up my color scheme.  Otherwise, i think it would have been all white - but you know what? I don't think i asked if they have color napkins!!   I know they charge extra for the chair ties - $6 a tie actually!  and i bought both my purple napkins and chair ties for 75 cents each.  They set up everything for me though, which was nice. i just to give everything to the coordinator and i also printed her instructions on how i wanted my tables set up (as i brought in my own centerpieces as well).

Nope.  i didn't do a cocktail hour as my ceremony was at 4pm and i had the dinner set for 5-7pm, then i did the bonfire party on the beach from 7-10pm.   no room for a cocktail hour as we barely had time for pictures!

 

And i also found the liquor for $17 per person to be too expensive.  Open bar was included in the bonfire package, so for the dinner, i thought it was insane to pay an extra $17 per person for 2 hours! - they were not asking per hour for that though, just per person....   so basically, after several emails back and forth about this (i tried to ask for only wine, but they charged like $25 per bottle of wine!), we finally decided that i was bringing in my own bottles of wine (i had my friends help me by packing in their suitcases - i only needed 6 bottles), and they charged me $11 for a corkage fee for each bottle they opened and served during dinner.  so it was a bit cheaper that way.  The wedding coordinator even said this would be better because the wine i could get for cheap in the states was MUCH better than the cheap quality wine they would serve and charge $25/bottle for!
