For decor we had the diamond wedding package $2375, of course we applied the $1500 resort credit, which brought it to $875. It's a little misleading because if you look at diamond package wedding photos you assume oh I'm getting the beautiful chandelier and diamond curtains with sheer fabrics. No, you get silver fabrics and sashes around the chair and no diamond chandelier or diamond curtains those are an additional $300 upgrade. I definitely wanted them so I didn't mind paying that. Just make sure you reserve that ahead of time with the wedding coordinator. Also, think I kinda got screwed on the fabrics because again the upgrade for $300 includes these very sheer see through white fabrics which appeared that way around the aisle chairs but up above on the hoopa alter the fabrics weren't as elegant. I also made sure they had my fabrics hanging straight across and straight down. I don't like the angle look myself which is just personal. I had them set the chairs up at an angle instead of straight down the aisle. We also added 4 aisle runners (2 at the alter and 2 at the beginning of he aisle that consisted of white mums in a glass vase with gems inside sitting on top of a base with a light that shines up in it). For the ceremony you couldn't see the light but they moved those down to the private function dinner after the ceremony and the light was pretty. I had them placed outside each square end of the table sorta bordering it if that makes sense? You will see in photos. Those came to a total of $300 but really make it look nice I think. They also moved the sashes around the chairs for the ceremony around a few of the chairs at the private function. Make sure to ask them to move those things for you otherwise they most likely won't.
Our private function dinner was on the South side Lagoon side it is better for evening because you see the lights of the lagoon. I had to be talked into this because I so wanted it on the ocean side right but really it's better on the lagoon at night. We spent $50 per person (14 people = $700) for our private function which basically includes your buffet and them serving your drinks and having waiters specifically for you although since it's a buffet you go get your own food. They just bring you drinks and serve your cake after you cut it. In addition to that we upgraded our chairs to the silver tiffany chairs at $7/each ($58 total). Since we only had 14 people I had the idea of doing a big square table so they did 4 chairs on each side except for 2 on the side for me and my husband. We upgraded to the silver square charges $3/each ($52) and purple napkins $3 each ($52). We had 2 beautiful centerpieces. Each one included 3 glass vases on a mirror with candles and pink, purple, and white rose petals spread on top. We also had an additional 6 square ivory candles (not sure how much those were) that were strategically placed just right on our table. Plus, we opted to go for 15 or so candles around the outside of the terrace pool ($80). I wanted the theme to be dim. We had them put a purple light under our table which was beautiful it made the table glow! Can't remember how much that was though? They also, at no additional cost shined a spotlight from the sky terrace down onto our table on the southside lagoon pool terrace.
We left there with a bill of about $4000 but that included $575 for before and after photography, $695 upgrade to classic photography, $300 diamond package upgrade, $700 private function cost, and the rest decorations. That cost didn't include the diamond package ceremony cost or the $300 government fees/blood test.
Private function and ceremony decor I wouldn't change a thing. I already had some ideas and Lily was great at helping me figure it all out. I honestly wouldn't change anything to the wedding besides moving it up earlier to capture better colors of the ocean in pictures. It's all about what you want. If you can I can give you her email and you can have her email you pictures of ideas (centerpieces, fabrics, light, etc.) ahead of time to narrow things down and check prices. Your wedding coordinator usually is supposed to put you in contact with these people but maybe you can get a head start. They sort of jam that in the 30 days right before you go down and you feel rushed. So the earlier the better.
