The chandelier was by far my favourite decoration.. I rented it from the hotel.. I was the first to use it I believe. The cost was $300 but well worth it as it looked beautiful in the location and looks amazing in the photos!!
As for photos we went with the basic package from tropic one studio which included photos/ video coverage from the ceremony to the end of cocktail hour and gave you 20 extra photos and it cost $700 again very much worth it video is beautiful and I will post link to the pictures.. We had 55 in total with the wedding package and photography package and any over that cost $15 extra. We choose 66 but had a family member take lots of other pics.. I will post a link in the next reply!
The other decorations were.. Drapes on the structure in white $90, flowers either side $140/160 each but used them at the pool party aswell. Chairs sashes were either including because they are White so no extra or $5 each if you wanted a different colour??
The pool party was the wedding day maker.. Everyone said how much they enjoyed it.. The bar was free as I had the domestic/local one which was more than enough as everyone liked at least one drink as the done lager/ shorts and cocktails such as piña coladas/ daiquiris and the DJ cost $210 an our.. Everything else was included.. So the pool party was only $420 and was worth it. (I've noticed a few of you talking about paying to privatise the pool party area.. There really is no need as its a distance from any of the bars etc and everyone knows that its a wedding so wouldn't join in.. We had some people just walk past and that was fine)
We met with leti on the second day of the holiday and had our blood tests done on the same day with the doctor in the hacienda at $90 or $95 each.
I had my dress ironed with the hotel before the wedding, they came and picked it up from my parents room and returned it on the day of the wedding to my room and it cost $25!! Also the shirts for something like $5 a shirt.
The only thing I will say is my wedding guests wanted flowers to wear so I done a list with their wishes on and gave the list to one of the coordinators as leti was off and only 1/4 of them were delivered.. So please make sure that if you want to do this the they do get ordered!!
Here's some pics of the pool party.. It was located opposite side of the pool to the lobby bar.. Any more questions please feel free to ask! ☺️
