I think Castaways is no longer an option unless you pay $5000... That was my first choice as well, How on earth did you get it?

I know this might be a bit of a personal question, but did you tip the wedding vendors (DJ, photographer, pastor, bartender, waiters) and WC and if so about how much?? I just have no idea what is the norm!!
Also, Skygirl I would love to see pics of your reception at the Castaway Terrace, I don't know if this is still an option?!?
Here is my e-mail if you can't attach pics! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
the whole reception went by so fast, that i didnt even have time to tip anyone, even though had all intentions...

As far as how i got castaways: we booked 14mnth prior to the wedding day, and castaway was then offered and that what we agreed on. Then they changed it, and said its no longer available... it was 7mnth prior the wedding, and we havent paid for trips yet... i showed them all the emails where castaway was confirmed and told them im still under the time frame where i can walk away and go to another resort for wedding and take my 35guests with me

Skygirl, did you get your hair and makeup done by the resort?
Posted 20 October 2012 - 05:01 PM
yes, i got my hair done at the resort spa. they did good job with my hair, for make up she did good job too, but they didnt have many shades for the foundation. Good thing i had my own...the had MAC make up.
Make up cost $40 and hair is $60

Amazing, thank you!! I have been seeing mixed reviews on the hair and especially the make up and of course it is a concern because we all want to look perfect on our big days

It looks amazing! I really wanted the castaways but now it is 5000 $ its just not worth it. We are having our dinner by the pool. Did you see anyone having their reception by the pool while you were there?

Does anyone know how long the tables would be if they are the oblong ones? I think we are doing our ceremony at the fountain and reception on the beach. We will have 32 people total so I would like the long tables and am trying to buy runners and stuff...and just can't seem to figure it out!
