    I agree with you, when comparing what another friend got at her resort in the Domincan I sometimes i did as well. There are so many hidden costs. I was haing trouble getting a hold of Patricia as well! I hope everything works out!!!

        She answered me back in 2 or 3 days... I put questions in the subject line- not sure if that helps maybe? Or try urgent? Everyone who has gone through it has been saying not to worry about anything- it will all go smoothly when we get there so i'm going to go with that and hope its true lol.

            Ladies, I found when I used their link on their website I never got a response (I think there is something wrong with the form on their website. When I sent them an email direct from my hotmail I got a response very quickly --I dealt with them a ton and literally they are very easy to speak to on the phone as well- if you give them a call. They have a toll free number I believe too. I had no issues communicating through hotmail or by phone though.

              Hi Everyone,


              This is what I got from Patricia:

               

              1) Caprice Package - You advised I am allowed up to 50 ppl. What about if i have 60-70 ppl? Will the additional charge of $10.50 apply for the additional 20-30 ppl, above the 40 allowed on the package?   If you have the Steakhouse menu, the cost is US$10.50 over 40 persons.   
                2) Plantation Restaurant - How does this work? I know it is $500 for 2 hours or $1000 for 4 hours, for a private reception. Do I have to pay $10.50 pp?  US$410.50 over 40 persons once you have the Caprice package
               
              Can we have the cake cutting, first dance and Parents' special dancing there too? What other additional cost would I have to pay if I have the reception at the Plantation Restaurant?
               
              In order to have these formalities you will need the Plantation for 4 hours and the location cost is US$1000

              3) Free Package - I was advised this covers up to 10 ppl. How much would each additional person be? 10.50? What about if I went with the free package and wanted to do my reception at the Plantation? Do I have to pay for kids under 2?
              What is the charge for Children?
               
              There is no cost for children under 2.  If you have the Free package you will pay US$10.50 per person plus the location fee.  There is an open bar cost of US$15 per person
                4)) Ceremony - What will you use to play the music for the Ceremony? MP3 player or CD? I would like to ensure I have it in the correct format.
               

              We may use a CD, MP3 or Ipod for the ceremony

                Danielle03 is correct. The $67 is for the poolside, and plantation there is no cost per person - just the cost of $1000  (other then the extra cost of 10.50  per person for the amount of people you have over your package amount selected which covers the extra cake/champagne) I just was married there a few weeks ago.

At least Keisha answered back.  I have several questions for her but Im assuming I will not have them answered. Sometimes, I just wished that I picked another resort. 

                  Hey Ladies, 

                   

                  Just wanted to let you know you don't need to stress, I was married there a few weeks ago, I had 38 guests and it was perfect. You can do all the planning when you get there--as long as you have booked your ceremony time and date and selected your location for dinner/reception then everything else can be planned once you meet with Patricia when your there :) They have this down to an art.  Alyce, try putting in the subject line of your email ***response needed ***

                   

                  If anyone has questions that I can help with then I'm happy to answer. 

                  Cheers

                  Kerry

                    Welcome Back!  It was so nice to see all of your amazing wedding photos when I popped back on here to check it out!  Looks like you had a beautiful wedding day, CONGRATS!!!  I'm getting excited for my own big day after seeing your pics;)

                     

                    I had a couple of quick questions for you (if you don't mind)...I was wondering when the beach party started and ended?  My wedding falls on a Monday and the reception portion will be over at 10:30pm and I was hoping we could all head over to the beach party right afterwards...  Also, was your reception poolside?  Or at the Plantation restaurant? 

                     

                    Thanks so much,

                    Yassy.

                    Hey Yassy, So sorry I'm late getting back to you, I had a ridiculously busy week and weekend last week!! Soooo wishing I was back in Jamaica right now. lol

                     

                    I can't remember what time the beach party started or ended - I had it the night of our welcome dinner and we got there after it had started -- it was probably around 8:30pm though when it started and it went for quite some time --I want to say til around 11-11:30ish.... the disco is open after 11pm though ...although I'm not a huge fan of the disco there. 

                     

                    We didn't end up hiring the DJ but I rented the system for the 4 hrs...I got it for $150/hr from Keisha and Patricia honored it. I did it for the 4 hrs because our first dance, speeches, toast, and father/daughter dance were all throughout dinner & dessert...I wanted the last 2 hrs to dance/party! :) Also I negotiated staying til 11pm with Keisha --- at no extra cost.  You could totally use an ipod dock for background music if you want for dinner ...but if you want the Mic then I would just rent it for the extra 2hrs. If your at semi private dinner in a restaurant thought then you won't be allowed to play ipod dock or have a Mic. 

                     

                    Let me know if you have any extra questions, Im happy to help. 

                    Kerry
