      I'm glad this thread was started.  And thank you for posting the free flower photos.  I'm glad I actually like them and don't have to pay the ridicouls $ to get an upgrade.

      Anyways.. I'm trying to figure out how to attach photos.  Keisha sent me pics and menu for 2011 of what is FREE in all the packages.

            Here is some info that Keisha has sent me in answer to my questions, hope this will be helpful to some of you:

             

            QUESTION: How much does it cost to have a reception on the beach after dinner?  What is included?

            *$15 PER PERSON, INCLUDES, OPEN BAR, TIKI TORCHES, EXCLUSIVELY PRIVATE TO YOU AND YOUR GUESTS, LIGHTING, TABLES AND CHAIRS.*
             

            QUESTION: Is it possible to play our own recorded music during the dinner (we would bring our own Ipod and docking station)?

            *****UNFORTUNATELY, NO MUSIC IS ALLOWED FOR SEMI PRIVATE DINERS. SORRY.*
             

            QUESTION: What colour are the included chairs (free) for the ceremony?

            *******WHITE OR BROWN*******

              A few additional questions answered:

               

              Are plugs/outlets available by Seagrape for the Reception, if we use our own docking station? 

              ******SURE***********
               

              Can we rent equipment to play music WITHOUT having a dj? If so, is the cost still $90/hr for each of the 2 hours?

              ********UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO NOT OFFER THE SYSTEM RENTAL ANYMORE*********
               

              Do we do cake cutting here on the beach or with the dinner?
              ********CAKE CUTTING IS DONE AT DINNER********
               

              What is the table set-up for dinner at the Mammee Bay?

              ********T SHAPED*******

              Here is a list of extra options with prices that I received from Keisha on Feb 13, 2011:

                Did she actually tell you that they include the tiki torches?  When did you get an email from her?  when I asked (exactly same question) she said that they don't offer the tiki torches any more due to discreprencies ...

                  Well, this SUCKS that they do not offer the system rental anymore. What is the point of the party reception then. With the docking station (from what I've read in the past) the music will be too quiet. I wonder if there is a way of convincing them to do that! I mean they have it on site, why can't they rent the thing out!

                    bmadzia - I got the response on Dec 13, 2010.  I found that prices and what was included did change multiple times since I first spoke with the resort back in June of 2010, so no doubt that you are getting different responses now.  I can let you know in a few weeks what ended up being included in the end.

                      That was EXACTLY what we thought...we were pretty disappointed to hear it was no longer offered.  We ended up going the expensive route (thanks to a gift from the FILs) and getting a BOSE system to do the music.  We've tried testing it outside on a windy day and it still seems to be "loud", but we'll see in Jamaica.  We just couldn't justify the cost for the DJ for a couple of hours, especially when we just be giving him a playlist of songs to play (or an Ipod) to ensure he had all the types of music that our guests like.
