      Your pictures look so beautiful :) Do you have any pictures of the food portions from reception? How many guests did you end up having? Do you have any tips or suggestions? I'm worried about bringing OOT bag stuff down on the plane. I'm thinking of dispersing my stuff with family members (in their luggages) but still on the fence about it. How much did your guests have to pay from Hamilton or Ontario?

      We had our reception at the Steakhouse..  There was plenty of food for us and remember, if the guys are still hungry, the RIU offers 24hr room service and there are snacks in the Sports Bar (also open 24hrs) so they can grab some more food there :)

        Oh ok... Just wondering we just quoted $301.00/night double occupancy. Does your quote include flights?

         

        We are getting married May 5th at 6pm (gazebo)

         

        I'm thinking we will have around 80ppl so we are going to try and do a private reception at the steakhouse. I still have to get all that pricing infomation from the WC. I have not spoke with them directly only through our TA.

         

        I'm going to use my bm and close family to help me bring down our oot bags.

                  I was wondering if any of you girls got pricing for the following yet?

                   

                  1. Bar Setup for Reception

                  2. OOT delivery Charge

                  3.Upgraded decorations/flowers

                  4. Charge for extra hours for reception & DJ

                  5. Per guest charge after ppl included in package for dinner/cake/champagne

                   

                  I haven't spoke with the wc yet any information would be helpful:)

                    #2 - Free delivery - we arranged to have our OOT bags delivered the first night while we were all out at dinner.  I had to write the room numbers on each bag and let the front desk know when we were going for dinner so they could drop them off.  I only had 9 bags, so if you have a lot more, they may charge for this service.

                     

                    #3 - All my decorations were included.  The only upgrade I enquired about was the chuppa which was $400 to rent.  I decided to stick with the palm arches and they were beautiful.  They were decorated with purple and white orchids to match our bouquets.
