    Has anyone added in the photo booth for their wedding?  The price is a little high but I have been to many wedding with these photos booths and everyone has had a blast.

      I'm also confused about the cocktail hour. Where is it held? Do your guest just wander around the dinner tables until dinner? Or do you have to rent a crazy amount of furniture for people to sit on?

        Wow! Beautiful. I wonder if I can have one long rectangular table or if they have to be all round. How many guests are you having? I expect a full report and detailed pics and lots of FUN to be had since you get married before me!


        EEEk! So excited! This is where I am having my ceremony and reception as well... Looks beautiful:) I like the idea of the ceremony being very close to the reception site so guests wont have to go to far. Thanks for posting these pics!

He said "the buffet will basically be the same price as the sit down..." He also disregarded my question about using the included photographer for the rehearsal dinner and said "please note that our packages cannot be altered/ substituted" That's a different story that I an getting from other brides on this forum... So I think my next step is contacting Anel to clarify...:) Ill keep you posted...

            Amy G- YAY! Do you have any pics or did you do a review for the resort? Any suggestions on meal choices and what to stay away from? You opened up a can of worms and now we'll all be asking you since you've already been down there. Congrats by the way!

              Yeah I've heard from other brides that they've been able to subsitute/alter certain aspects. I kinda feel like they pick and choose who'll they'll allow to alter packages. Which is super unfair

                I am looking at the Divine package and wasn't sure about if there was any taxes added on, so I emailed Ramon and he said he wasn't sure at first, then I just heard back this morning that there is an additional 11% tax and food and beverage is 11% and 15% service charge...Doesn't make sense on a package when it is all lumped together, so I told him to break it down for me and to show me where in the paperwork/website where it says there is a tax on the package.  I'll keep you updated - but in the meantime, can anyone clear this up??

                  What I dont understand with the cocktail hour is that we are all inclusive anyway and so I thought paying for the cocktail hour was basically paying for the service, but then they add service and tax ontop of the initial price and so it seems its just another way of charging more money.

                   

                  I am sure it will all be lovely and work out fine but it is slightly annoying not knowing upfront what you have to pay for and what your actually getting for that money before the event!

                   

                  Very exciting though x

                    Hi melnryluvco,

                     

                    I posted some pics on this thread on Page 31 and then a link to my slideshow on Page 34.  I never did a full review, but I did post some 'pointers' on Page 33...and some pages right before and after that.

                    I chose the Divine package and I picked the beef for dinner and it was delicious!!  The wedding dinner was very very good and the service was amazing.

                     

                    Let me know if you have any other questions!  :-)

                     

                    -Amy
