    @TaraB thanks for the feedback on the lanterns. Are you getting married at beach terrace or tequila terrace? Let me know how it works out with the lanterns ( take a pic and post) and I"ll do the same thing  ( order the lanterns and bring them) Also we stayed at secrets silversands ( sister resort of NOW) and my fiance did not wear jeans to dinner. the dress code said no shorts but I think jeans are ok he just didn't wear bc it was so hot out so he stuck to linen pants most nights.

      thanks for the info vanessa.  (for some reason the mention function wont work for me!) 

       

      i am getting married on the beach terrace, and my cocktail hour is there as well.  but - our reception will be in a ballroom.  i have seen some pics of lanters hung inside ballrooms at different heights and it looks amazing.  hopefully i can get the same effect!

        Does anybody know the size of the round tables Sapphire uses? I would like to order table overlays, but realized I don't know what size to order.

          Hi there,

           

            Just have a couple of questions.

           

          Are there microphones and speakers at the tequila terrace for speeches during the reception?

           

          Has anyone found a good DJ at a reasonable price and what is the outside vendor fee?

           

          Thanks!

            Thanks!

            The outside vendor fee is $350(if it hasn't increased for 2014). I'm going with the resort dj because I'm giving him the entire playlist and will pull him aside to let him know he follows it or he's not getting paid by me!!!! Also you can rent the sound system from the resort and I've seen it range from $150 to $400...
            Does anyone have information on outside florist in the area?

              Thanks for your help! Isn't the DJ $350 per hour though? I've found a DJ for a better price but with the outside vendor fee it's hard to know what to do! How many hours do you think you will use the DJ for?

                Do they supply speakers to play music for the ceremony? I have the Divine package but thinking of using the guitarist or saxophonist for the cocktail hour. Did you just give them your ipod?

                Speakers are included for the ceremony.  We gave them our phone and the music was played from there.  Ramon or Anel will go over which songs you want played during your planning meeting a day or two before the wedding.

                 

                We used the guitarist for the cocktail hour and it was a great decision!  He played a wide variety of songs and the guests loved it!

                  Perfect! That sounds great. Did you use a DJ for the reception? Or what did you do? 

                   

                  Do Anel and Ramon arrange the meeting time before you arrive at the resort? Also did you pick flowers before you arrived or just when you were there? On the form it says to pick the flowers but I have also read from others that they just picked them at the meeting.

                   

                  Thanks for your help!!
