Hello Ladies!

 

Thank you all for your posts,  the info really helps! I'm glad to learn Sabes44 that you're an event planner, I work in hospitality as well, it just confirms I made the right choice  :lol: since we aren't doing a site visit .

 

We are getting married April 30th, 2015 and chose the gold package. I am undecided on the locations to hold the ceremony, my fiance is leaning towards the pier and I like the beach however I've noticed that pictures under the perogola often have stripes of shade and light. Am I just making too much of a big deal on this little detail. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Julie

@@Sabes44, I don't believe we got any extra perks with destinationweddings.com.  I had a friend who used them and had no problems so that is why we chose them.  I really like my agent.  She gets back to me very quickly and has been helping my friends/family with all their questions. 

I have to been to the Excellence 4 times on vacation so believe me if you choose ERC, you won't be disappointed!!!  


@@karijean, thank you so much for the post!  It was very helpful!  Pictures looked amazing and so did you!  I agree about the DJ.  At first we weren't going to get one and do the ipod but I don't want to have to worry about songs all night.  We hired our DJ and photog last week :)  Thanks again for the info.

@@hapykat it is definitely not easy to book something site unseen, but I feel confident with all the research I have done.  I am just working on figuring out what "extras" are worth it to pay for.  Still comparing with Karisma resorts, but I have liked Excellence from the beginning and two story terrace room looks amazing!  I totally over think things, go with your first instinct.  If you don't mind the sand and potential stripes of shade and light I say go for it.  I have never noticed that detail in any of the pictures, until you mentioned it.  Either way you can't go wrong!

 

Thanks @@Crystal17!  How much does the DJ run for?  We will have a small group, I am trying to decide if a DJ is worth the cost.

 

Thanks ladies!!

Thanks @@Sabes44 (I hope I'm doing this right) I would also like to know how much the DJ costs, and if its really worth the money? I don't expect us to be more than 30

@@Sabes44 and @@hapykat - I've been working with Jessica and I recently asked her for a price list. If I recall correctly, DJ Mannia is $1300 for four hours.

Thanks @@JenniferH114!  That's a pretty good price for 4 hours @@hapykat, we will have about the same amount of guests.  I am also trying to decide if its worth it, or if it would just be more fun to go to another bar after and maybe just have a little trio or something during the reception.  We don't plan on a typical wedding, might just want to do a few speeches and maybe a first dance but really just want to have fun and enjoy the time with friends and family.

Thanks for all the info Ladies! Lots of good idea to ponder. I was wondering if anyone's wedding will be overlapping with mine? April 30th is a Thursday and we leave Sunday May 3rd.

I was undecided about DJ until recently. There are 30 of us and I decided to go for it. Then we don't have to worry about anything.

 

I am getting married on the beach! I did notice the stripes that the sun and shade make under the pergola but for me that's one thing I like about it. I think the pics come out pretty cool looking with all the shadows. I think you will defiantly have to be ok with that look if you choose the beach.

I like your perspective about the shadows. So about shoes... I know this is probably obvious but do you know if anyone's has "successfully" worn shoes down the burlap runner?
