    Hey guys!! Im getting married on April 11, 2012 at the Elegance. Im having an early beach ceremony, wedding pool party, dinner at the steakfouse and private reception at the Wet bar. Im planning to get my hair done at the spa(it has great reviews), we are using an iPod and sound system instead of a DJ and im bringing simple decorations like sashes and lanterns to save a little cash. We have 36 people booked so far.

     

    It looks like I'm the next to go...so I'll log on after and answer all your questions. Just let me know. I'm trying to pay forward all of the help that past brides passed on to me :)

      When you say you are having dinner at the steakhouse and the receptions at the wet bar, does that mean you are just having a cocktail hour after dinner? And does that mean you are not paying all of the extra fees for a private area? I think I like this idea a lot. I have so many questions. PM if you can. :-)

            We are having a reception after dinner (at the Parrot Bar now). You can have sit down dinner at the parrot/wet bar but you pay ~$70/plate after taxes plus booze because they only include beer and wine, plus sound system etc.

             

            Or...

            you can have the 'free' dinner at either the Sea&See or the steakhouse called Asadito(sp?). An then you can have a seperate reception after and pay $500/hr. This includes bar well liquor, wine, beer and mix and a sound system. Most receptions are from 8-11 but I have heard of some people going from 8-12.

            We have such a big gap between our wedding  at 11 am and dinner at 630 pm we decided to have a pool party. Im changing out of my dress and into a white bikini and we're going to celebrate by the pool. My fiance are then getting our pics taken right before dinner so we can take advantage of the sun setting.

            This is just something we decided though. The hotel isn't doing anything to help out with this.

                Are you talking to me? We have 34 of us.

                 

                Really?!! What time are you getting married and where? What type of dinner and reception are you having? How many do you have? When do you all arrive?

                      How was your wedding?  Did you write a review?  I would love to hear some details (good and bad ... things you recommend).  I just got pricing from my TA.  We are deciding between the ME and Gran Bahia Esmeralda.

                       

                      Michelle
