    Were those coconut drinks at an extra expense?  I wanted to have some sort of liquor on the table for shots... As we are bringing shot glasses as favours, but I was told I would have to buy that seperately.  Also I was looking into having wine as a welcome drink and I was told that would also be a separate cost - by the bottle... (and their wine list isn't cheap!)  Its all adding up!

      But in divine package, international bar is open! isn´t it?

      Now I am confused....I´d also want some welcome drinks, to get people in the mood....

      I think international bar just means certain brands, may be equivilant of top shelf? The problem with wedding guide is we don't know exactly what their terminology means. What are you guys choosing for your dinner option? Also did any of you or any of you make menu cards? I love how they look at the table, but am afraid to print them up and then the menu changes. I mean, I wouldn't print them till right before we leave, but.....

        Hi ladies! I am a Now Larimar bride getting married May 4th 2013.  I also inquired about the specialty drinks and they told me the drinks in the coconut would be $4.00 each extra.  The international bar is 12$ per person with just one beer option--Bohemia.  The premium bar is $18 per person and you get both Bohemia and Presidente with some upgraded liquers.  I am having 50 guests and the extra costs are really adding up!! it's $350 just for 25 extra chairs!  I am in contact with Carribean Celebrations to see if I can get them cheaper.  I wanted a buffet but it would be an extra $1400 instead of $1000 for 50 people sit-down, so we are just going with the sit down.  This website has been extremely helpful with the planning! :)

          Yes Coco drinks were additional $4 and we used those as a welcome drink to the cocktail party. We had the bar that was included in the divine package and paid additional for extra hour. We had the champagne served to all guests immediately after the ceremony. IF the liquor is provided at your bar they can make a Tequila Sunrise, Rum Runner or whatever for everyone in a standard drink cup if you would like at the reception...If I remember correctly. We opted for Buffet due to our large group and the sit-down dinner taking up to much time of the reception with all the courses and the food was great. I did use now for the chair, tablecloth rentals etc just didnt have enough time to look elsewhere.

                  Does anyone have any pictures of the Relaxing Pool vs. Garden View Pool? I see that thee are both options for the reception, but they only show pictures of the Relaxing Pool. Also, if you have over 25 guests, do you have to pay for additional chairs for the wedding and the reception?

                    Hey Rose,


                    Sorry I don't have pictures of the pools but yes you do have to pay extra for the chairs. It would be an additional $3.50 for the regular chairs with white covers. I wouldn't be surprise if they charge it twice since they would have to move them from ceremony to reception.
