    I know the prices are crazy especially if your numbers are above 25!

    Honestly?  The tequilla terrace is the location that I love the most of any wedding location I have seen of any resort so far.  I LOVE it.  But now, in doing more research into the cost of booking Now Sapphire, I am so disappointed that it is outside of our budget.  I am so bummed. :(

It may be small but it's powerful. Do you think this would work? I really REALLY do NOT want to have to pay the $350 an hour to rent their sound system and I refuse to hire a DJ. We're getting married on the beach terrace. Let me know your thoughts and thanks so much for all the insight!

       

      Hi melnryluvco,

       

      If your ceremony and everything else is on the beach terrace, your sound system just may work...But if you have anything on the beach you may want to ask the resort what they think only because the ocean can get pretty noisy.  Our ceremony was on the beach and all I know is that they set up speakers that faced out to the ocean and the music was def. loud enough over the ocean noise.  We also used a microphone for the vowels and the officiant, so you may want to ask the resort if you can still get the microphone even if you dont rent their sound system.  The sound system is $150/hr....I am not aware of it being $350/hr. 

       

      Below is my reception table set up...you can see the votive/tea light holders.  That centerpiece came with the package.

            My fiance and I are getting married there July 5th.  I feel bad stalking Anel with my millions of questions.  Maybe we can share with each other whatever info she gives us.  : )

              Wow beautiful set up!! We will have about 5-6 round tables with 10 ppl at each. Does the resort supply the table covers/ napkins or did you have to bring those? I want to do our wedding colors on the tables... But I don't want to get there and realize it will cost an arm and leg to rent them!

                  Thank you blay0204! 

                   

                  I did have to rent the table covers and the napkins.  The long table was either three or four tables long so I rented three or four table covers @ $25/each....sorry I can't remember how may I had.  The cloth napkins were a few dollars each. 

                  I had thought about bringing down my own fabric for the table covers and bringing my own napkins, but in the end just decided to rent them because itwas easier nd frnakly I already had enough extras in my luggage.  I will say that the resort has a book full of different fabrics to choose from with literally every color imaginable...some textured and very beautiful.
