Now I'm thinking of flying a DJ out so I can use for welcome party and wedding- I think it's cheaper just to bring your own. Plus I need Lebanese music played during the wedding and so I really have no choice but to bring my own DJ . Did anyone book the bridal suite to get ready in?. I saw a picture last night on resorts facebook page and it looks really nice!, did anyone visit the suite while they were out there.?


I am  contemplating the DJ thing as well.  I still haven't even gotten a quote from them.  Yes, I went into the bridal suite...it is SO beautiful!  Here is my link to pictures of the resort, and there are pics of the bridal suite in it!

If so, mine is a double halo too:)

    Chelae- I actually have 60 adults booked and 10 kids. What I did was I told everyone that the I had a deadline of when they had to book or they would be subject to hire priced rooms! Some people got scared and booked immediately . Others are still taking their time but I am having my travel agent send an email to the last 10-13 people left and tell them that they must make a decision in the next week . Are you staying on the la esmerelda side? Doing a welcome party? I am trying to decide if I should have an after party at the red lounge? Or just extend the wedding for two hours? What are you doing?

    Hiya Rola :) We are on the La Perla side... Our guest wanted to leave the children at home... Lol We are having a welcome BBQ, and our reception is from 6pm - 10pm... Had not thought about the after party! My bridesmaids say after the reception, my new husband and I need to disappear together for some romance... I actually can't agree more :) I so wish my guest were as cooperative as yours... Some have even booked outside of our room block :/ oh well! It is going to be a beautiful and romantic day :)

              I still have no idea !! My bridesmaids are wearing blush pink colored dresses and my entire wedding is silver and white so thinking of putting him in either a grey suit or white linen suit ... Who knows. My fiance would kill me if I put him in a tuxedo bc he would be to hot - What about you

                We booked last year around March or April :). I've been so busy with preparing for marriage, wedding planning and life, I've been away from the site for waaaay too long! It is so amazing how close we are to the actual date... :) Initially I though we would have close to 100 attendees... Now as the dust settles, looks more like 40 - 50 people... How many did you end up with? What are your final locations? We are selecting the Gabi Bridge (Ceremony) and Gabi Club for the reception :)

                I chose same locations - I love the gabi club! I received an email the other day that I need to let them know what each of my guests will be choosing as reception entree (since we are giving them 2 options)- I guess I will just give an estimate? No way am I calling my guests to find out- what did you guys do?
