Your already dressed that day, so why not help yourself and let someone else do the dirty work!!

Which DJ did you use?

Has anyone had or has seen BP allow anyone to have a bonfire either during the reception or during any private event (welcome dinner?)

Also, just wanted to get a general feel of the brides out there on the daily pass fee for guests not staying in the resort.  Is it bad form to notify them ahead of time that if they book at a different resort, they will have to pay the $97/person fee?  Or do you just suck it up and pay for it?

Hi newlyengaged13 I initially told people we would pay their guest pass on the wedding day but if they wanted to come and see us then they would have to pay it at other times. Then I found out that there's a maximum of 20% of your wedding party allowed in under a guest pass! So as of yet all our guests attending are staying at BP. May be something for you to bear in mind for your wedding day. Incidentally does anyone know how we sort out the privileges you get once people start booking? We are up to 101 room nights now (inc me and my FI) and I read yesterday that once you reach 75 you're entitled to upgrades/private functions/free nights for the bride and groom. How do we go about securing these - in particular the 7 free nights. As we have already paid our deposits, so I don't know how this will work out? Thanks ladies :-D Xx

Nicole,

 

I rented the ipod for my entire reception! We had a friend act as MC and do all the announcing and made playlists for each thing (first dance, cake cutting, dance music, dinner music etc) so the ipod tech knew when to play what.  It took me probably 4 hours to make the music but it was worth saving the $800 to me! It worked out great! Just make sure you tell the tech not to let anyone change the music!

So I rented the IPOD dock for our cocktail hour and reception so we're not doing a DJ. I was wondering what  you guys did regarding announcements, like first dance, cake cutting, throwing of bouquet, etc...?

 

Did you have a family member announce these things?

 

And setting up this music on my IPOD is stressing me out. Did you guys do one long playlist? Or separate playlists for cocktail hour, reception, etc...

 

I think I'm going to need someone a little more tech savvy to help me with this.

Hello Ladies,

 

Can anyone tell me from past experience if their guests used the resort credits towards any excursions?  Or did most guests just stay within the resort to hang around the bridal party/friends/family?  Did it seem like the credits just went to waste?

I'm wondering the same thing. We leave next week,  but none of my friends seem to even care about the resort Credit.

Hi Ladies,

 

Most of my guests used the resort credits, people were coming and going the whole week. They were worth it!

Has anyone had their cocktail hour and reception both on the South Bar Sky Terrace?

 

Originally I was supposed to have cocktail hour on North Bar Sky Terrace and the dinner reception on the South Bar Sky Terrace, but Margarita said she made a mistake and they don't do private events on the North Bar. So she's switched my cocktail hour to the ocean side of the South Bar Sky Terrace and my reception dinner to the lagoon side of the South Bar.

 

Anyone else have this set up? I hope people don't get sick of being up there for 3 + hours. I was hoping the cocktail hour would have a little different setting.

 

What do you guys think? I'm a bit worried now.

Hi Nicole,

 

This is exactly the setup that I had, and it worked perfectly.
