    Vav no you don't have to use him, I think you just have to pay a vendor fee which if it's the same as the other resorts it's $75 or something close to that.


    TJ when is your wedding again?? Your sis profile looks awesome

      I don't think you have to use their photographer, but if you choose a package that includes a photographer that is who they use.  It makes it difficult, I still can't figure out how to breakdown everything down a la carte without choosing a package?? I think they do that purposely..... by the time you add up most of the important factors ceremony, florals, hair, food, drinks etc....., I think It works out to be close to the same???

      If someone gets more answer on that please let me know( I still want premium liquor & food too! & DJ )..... I just bought a calling card today and I'm going to give claribel a call a soon as I have a free chance.

          Moniwoni, those are great earrings!  I have been looking at similar stuff on Etsy as well.


          Quick question... what does OOT bags mean?  I know what they are just not the exact acronym LOL. 


          I am looking forward to getting more of the details done and complete so that I can relax a little bit!! I have a friend flying in this weekend to try on bridesmaid dresses.  Cannot wait to have this chore complete!!

                Just wanted to share with you the price I figured if you I used the Moments package then adding on what I want and also the Eternity plus the add-ons.


                Things you need to consider for this pricing is that I added:

                Based on 2012 Pricing

                Based on a 50 people(guest) count

                No decorations (flowers and center pieces) because I plan to bring all those over and DIY

                Pastor York $350

                Gazebo (with white fabric) $350

                Caribbean Trio $300

                Platinum Cocktail and Dinner

                Open Bar (International) --- wasn't really sure if ths would be included in the purchase of the Platinum cocktail and dinner $18 pp per hour???? So this was a pretty ridiculous amount @ $450/hr so I'm hoping I'm wrong on this for 50 people it would be $2,250 for 5 hours! yikes... I have a feeling it's included though if you purchase the platinum package.

                DJ $1500

                Photographer $2000


                Moments Package:

                $10,105.50 plus taxes if Open Bar is not paid for $7,855.50 plus taxes



                $ 11,356.50 + taxes (if less open bar= $9,106.5 +taxes)



                $ 8,736.5 + taxes (if less open bar= $7,3865.5 +taxes)


                So I think if you want  the Platinum package for the cocktail and dinner it actually saves you money to just go with the Divine since you only pay for the additional guests ass opposed to paying the per person rate. Ofcourse if you have a smaller group it wouldn't be as much as what I figured or maybe it would be about the same as the Divine so why not just get the extra photg for a session on your welcome dinner or something. I'm sure they would be ok with that.


                Hope this helped! :)

                  Oh I got the Divine Numbers wrong! HA! I forgot to add the Photgrapher... Those are my numbers since I'm using the resort's photog for now... and the the less bar thing has an extra 5! OMG. just scratch that!!




                  $10,736.5 + taxes (less open bar =  $8486.5) if paying $2000 for photog


                  $8,753.5 +taxes (less open bar = $6,486.5) if not hiring extra photog.

                    Don't know if any of this info pertains to you ladies but WC from NOW Larimar answered a few of my questions and figured they may help some of you (the answers are in blue):



                    1) Can you please send pictures of the options for the reception? I'm trying to decide whether or not I'll have hanging lanterns at the reception. Lanterms look great at a reception party and it is possible if you choose the beach area by the Castaways Restaurant. Pictures attached.

                    2) I'd like to have a bonfire to welcome my guests - is that allowed somewhere on the NOW Larimar - preferably the beach?Bonfires are not allowed at our beach, but at the contact info from kukua Restaurant it is possible, so please ask them. Info below


                    3) I'm thinking of having an event at the Jellyfish restaurant. Do you have a contact person there or can you send me info and I will contact them on my own? We have a contac person there and also at Picture 1.png

                    Picture 2.pngPicture 3.pngPicture 4.pngPicture 5.png

                      Thanks sooo much for sharing these pictures! It's good to see some of their reception set-ups. I think there is a thread on here about the jellyfish restaurant, if you just do the search you'd probably find the contact number... Also I think you might have to clarify with her the floating lanterns that you meant. I think she's thinking floating in the pool as in water. Like lanterns on pods you put in the pool not the flying ones... But I thought you can have a reception by the pool though, you would just have to do a buffet for it.


                      Thanks again for sharing!
