    Another bride on here (Mandie) was told while speaking with a WC via telephone that yes it was included with the Divine package... it was not in writing.
    When I inquired via email I was told it was not included and that was the deal breaker for me to not select the divine package...
     

    My wedding plans have been on hold since I returned to work from mat leave.. I feel so far behind after reading all the new posts :-(

        So, are you not taking any package then?  How many people do you have coming?  The dinner part was where I thought the money was worth it...  But,maybe I need to go back and look again... Argghhhhh - Time is ticking - Eek!

              Well, I think I am sticking with the Divine package mostly for the dinner meal.  We still better get the violionist, saxophonist or guitarist for the ceremony!  That is definitely spelled out in the package.  I am clarifying that with Francina right now.  We are using HDC for our photographer. 

               

              At this point we are doing ceremony at the fountain and reception on the beach.  A couple of my friends are working on reception playlists if we do the ipod docking station or I still might hire a DJ, I'm not sure.  I do want a lighted dance floor on the beach too, haha ;).

               

              Does anyone know what music they are doing for the ceremony?  I don't want something so traditional but don't really have any ideas either. ;) 

               

              Let me know of any questions, I'll certainly see if Francina has answered them for me...I've been sending a ton.  Or should I just post them here? :)

                Right now I am looking at 16 adults.. maybe less/more but for budget I am using 20 Adults

                 

                We are getting the complimentary wedding package as we have the Preferred Club Ocean view room booked.

                I do have confirmation that there is a sound system included for ceremony all packages ( I have this in a email ) as I want certain songs as the girls and I walk down the aisle.

                -This package includes a wedding ceremony for 10 people so I have to add on a cost for chairs, wine and cake for 10 extra ..

                -I am also adding on a private dinner (885 +tax Platinum ) and the sound system (350).

                total cost taxes included in $1760..

                 

                That saves me $989 when comparing to the Now to Eternity package w/sound system...

                There so so many extras that I would not use ( Photos, Hair/makeup  in the higher packages that it seems better for me to do it this way and save the money.
                I am not getting married til the evening so cocktail hour would be a waste for a small group, we are doing most of our pictures before the wedding.. after the ceremony it will be group shots anyhow so why pay for drinks ( which we can free get anyhow) and food when we are going directly to a big dinner...
                It makes sense for us to do it this way.. it may not work for all brides though. It depends on what you want and how many guests you have

                 

                :-) Now when I get there I may add little things.. but nothing to equal $1000 and that I would have in the higher packages.
