Recommended Posts

@vizionme. Congrats Girl!!!so happy for you. Im glad you all had great time, you looked amazing, love your dress, and thank you sooo much for coming back and sharing all the info, it is greatly appreciated.

few question: for the food, did you go with the buffet?how many ppl u had come? was the food good?what made you go with the buffet, rather then a plated meal. For each additional person after 25ppl that you paid per person is alcohol part of of the price or is it 12$pp separate?was there enough waiters?

Thank you sooo much!

I am hoping I did my math right.. but 26% tax on food and drink is a lot. If they do not charge that on the packages then I have to really rethink this whole thing!

AT this point I am starting to rethink the whole wedding.... so confusing

Hi all....

 

I got a reply from Mercy and yes my calculations were  right!! YAY!! She replied at 4 in the morning to my emails... and always so nice!

Poor woman must be run off her feet...

 

There are no taxes on the packages as it already includes them, but taxes on anything extra.

If I chose to do the "free" wedding and add on the plat menu, it is 885 plus 26% tax for 25 ppl.

 

I have to sit down and redo my calculations with what I really want and see what works best for us and what the best option is to save some money!

Another bride asked me a good question....

 

Is alcohol included in the dinner options? It states "drinks included" but then you also have a private bar option...

I would assume it would be included, just wondering if anyone knew for sure.

I sent another email to Mercy to ask.. maybe a while to reply though which I completely understand :-)

 

Ya 26% is outrageous... but nothing I can do about it I guess. The plus is it is not charged on a wedding package .. but is on anything you add.

So depending on number of guests it may be better to do a package...

Right now with my calculations I am saving $1000 by doing a "free" wedding compared to the middle package, and adding what i want which isn't much! Provided i stay at 25 or under guests :-)

 

Another question.. what do you tip the wedding dept? Do you tip everyone separately, or give one big tip and hope they do as you ask to spread it out? I would like to tip the servers at our wedding and Mercy.. and who ever else is involved during the day.
Any previous brides do this?

@Skygirl - I went with the Buffet with 39 people.  The food was so delicious.  It was actually better than the restaurant food itself.  I'm not sure if there were separate cooks. I went with the Buffet because with the plated dinners, everyone gets the exact same meal.  I know with my family and friends, a lot of people don't like the same things and I have some people that are allergic to things.  Yes for me, the liquor was included.  The only time I was charged extra for the difference after 25 was for the cocktail hour.  And there were definitely enough waiters and bartenders who are all so nice.

 

@Mayrose, I was going to go with the DJ, but there were enough people in my family with Ipods, CD's, etc.  So I just ended up just renting the equipment.  However, when I got to the reception, the DJ was there to help out and I didn't get charged for him.  He was good, but the music my family brought was better.  LOL.  The only complaint I had was my CD didn't work in the equipment, so we had to do a last minute change with the father and Daughter dance and the Mother and son dance.  But luckily we had enough choices and it was Great. 

 

Let me know if you ladies have any other questions.  Just breath, relax and everything will go great!

@vizionme. Your reply is greatly appreciated! I guess where im getting really confused is in the menu it said drinks included and then in a separate section it said private bar options(premium. international) so does the liquor that included, do they have bartenders there just for the wedding reception?tnx
