@@Giocivs88 yes all the little extras such as linens, chairs etc are NOT included so it can cost a small fortune. It would be as much as hosting a wedding a home maybe more cause the price list is steep.

 

@@Sabes44 my timeline affords us about 1.5-2 hrs. For 20 pp I think it's nuts to pay essentially for 650 an hour for if you focus on post dinner.

@@hapykat I agree.  Doesn't seem worth it to me either.  I didn't know anything about paying for tables, linens or chairs, I thought they were all included.  Gloria, Jessica or our travel agent never mentioned that....

You get chairs and linens, etc. included in your package. They are whatever "standard" issue the hotel offers. The linens are white, for example. What costs extra are colored linens, "fancy" chairs... Basically anything you want upgraded you would order through their preferred vendor, which I believe is Event One. When you start ordering that stuff it adds up and you have to pay for delivery, etc.

True linens and chairs are included but it's basic white linen and chair covers. Anything else ie. Tiffany chairs different linens are extra

Thanks!  That's what I thought, I am fine with just white.  We are doing our reception at Los Olas, I don't think fancy linens go with the space anyways.

@@JenniferH114 thank you for making some clarity in my overwhelmed head lol... yes jessica emailed me a picture to show me that everything comes in white ....although i don't understand why the prices of flower centerpieces are so high, and so are the bridesmaids bouquets ...

i think I'm going to bring my own table runners, i saw some pretty ones on etsy.

@@Sabes44 i agree with you, you made the right choice!


@@hapykat omg yes with every little extra that i want it would definitely be just as pricey as it would be hosting it at home.....and that would defeat the purpose haha

Holy shit am I starting to freak out! 

 

I sent Jessica our flight booking confirmation number in July of last year and I get an email from her asking me if I still want my wedding date to be on the 11th as someone is asking for it! I told her hell no that it's our date!!! So she gets back to me and tells me that she will hold it for another month (Damn wedding date is on the 11th Feb 15) and if I can send her my confirmation number!!! 

 

I think she has scrambled her wits because she goes on to say that if I need more than a month to book to let her know!! WTH is going on????

 

Has anyone here had anything like this happen?

Just sent it to both of you as an attachment and I think that worked....

@@Sabes44 Can you please send me your picture, too? kjstar3@aol.com

 

thank you!!

@@hapykat - I totally understand your perspective when it comes to the DJ and how much it costs. For us, at the end of the day, we just don't want to have to worry about anything. Also, the DJ will play music during dinner and provide added ambiance with lighting. When we met with Jessica she told us the day would roughly go as follows:

 

5pm - Ceremony (about 15-20 minutes)

5:20 - Break for some photos

5:45 - 6:45pm - Cocktail hour

6:45pm - 7:30pm - Fire show

7:30 - 9pm - Dinner

9 - 11pm - Dancing

 

Again, we could change the fire show to after dinner but I think it might flow better for us to go before. I feel like with that schedule we are still getting some good use out of the DJ, including during dinner. 

@JenniferH114 - fire show sounds so fun! do all ceremony/receptions last 6 hours? or is yours extended bc you're incorporating the fire show?

@@upstatekj - That was just a rough outline but we are doing the gold package, which adds the cocktail hour and then the standard reception is four hours. Jessica told me they leave about 20 mins between the ceremony and cocktail hour for some pictures.
