    Good to know! That's money that can be spent elsewhere,,,,I feel like why pay extra when drinks are included in everyones package?

      So I know we have had this discussion before, but you can pick not just one entree for the dinner? I guess I didn't understand what people meant. Sounded like you needed to have a seating chart if you have different entrees. Can you have two or three entrees? I might email Anel and see what she says. We have some picky eaters as well. 

       

      Thanks

      You should let me know what she tells you- I was also wondering about this. The way I took it was that as long as you have some sort of seating chart or way to distinguish who picked what meal ahead of time then you can pick 2.

          Hi Rani, 

           

          Anel was very specific with me about this: You can definitely offer two entrees to your guests, as long as you give Anel advanced notice and, more importantly, your seating chart and place cards should identify the entree selection of each guest. She suggested color-coding, for example: Vegetarian entress' place cards - Green.

            I have a question for those of you farther along in the planning or those who have already had their wedding...If you could give us one or two pieces of advice on planning a destination wedding, what would it be? What has worked well for you and what have you stressed about that you wish you wouldn't have?

              You can pick up to 2 entree choices but you must tell the resort at your wedding appointment what each guest will have & also have their place cards marked in some way.  Our place cards had a small flower on them (teal: beef, orange: shrimp)

                Be patient...they do not reposnd as quickly as we do in the US...be patient they will get back to you:-)

                 

                Our music was a huge stress..but our playlists worked our perfectly & the sound teh & system were worth it.

                 

                One bit of advice if you choose the sound system route is have someone in your group MC parts of the reception: first dance, cake cutting, etc.

                  Attached is the link to our wedding video done by the resort & included in the Divine wedding package.  We received it on a DVD about 3 weeks after.
