I am doing the complimentary package! THis is what i rented from Zuinga
Ceremony- SKy Terrace
-sashes for inside isle of chairs
(i didnt want to spend alot on the ceremony- its so beautiful as is and you are only there for 20min)
Reception- South or North Terrace (i forget which one- my cocktail hour is on one side and the reception on the other)
We are doing one long table. Using the resort table cloths and napkins (white) this is free
The following is from Zuinga
-Glass Plate chargers
-Centerpieces (square low vase with flowers & votives (fake ones - it can get windy) This was expensive ($580 for my centerpieces for only ONE table! granted its a long table 35 people) They origianlly quoted me $900 ouch. If you can bring your own i say do it! But i think they will charge you a setup fee per table
-Candles for around pool (fake again- in case windy)
-Pinata and pinata stick
I am renting from JSAV, the ipod setup including 2 speakers and someone to run the ipod as well as some extra lighting (they say it gets dark on the south/north terrace) Is anyone else renting extra lighting? As well as a gobo to project our monogram on the wall.
I am having a welcome cocktail the day we arrive (we are from Canada so staying a week) so this would be 3 nights before the wedding
I think the cocktail hour on the wedding day is a good way to keep the guests busy while you are doing photos. But totally up to you
Hope this helps!
Totally helps my fiance does not seem to understand why I am overthinking all of this! I am gonna do the cocktail hour
I was wondering about extra lighting. I guess I better ask about that!
Someone from JSAV is running the ipod setup? How much was that? I was doing the ipod setup partially for money saving but partially because we are kinda particular about music and very country loving people and want to have everything played we wanted!
I am gonna bring some things for my centerpieces and hope for the best, I was quoted some ridicuous price as you were. Thanks!
