      I asked Sharlene Nelson, she's a Weddings Assistant, who I have been in contact since the beginning. She told me that you do not have to pay $500 and you get the ipod hookup/docking station with speakers for the ceremony only. However, if you want the hookup/docking station with speakers for the reception then they will charge you. I'm going to bring all my emails which me just in case, just because I don't want to hear anything :-)

      What are people doing for centerpieces? We are doing the waves of love package, so i'm happy to hear about the flowers. Now I can just think about the MOH and bridesmaid flowers. Alysia said they move the big flowers to the reception. If you are picking that package, are you still doing centerpieces and how are you transporting it?

      You're going to have a beautiful wedding KellyDawn. Can't wait to hear about your experience and see pictures!!!!

        Hey ladies, 

        We are going with the steel drum band for the ceremony and don't want the IPOD docking station and speakers, do you think they would give us back $500? Or let us use it at the reception? I see that they charge $500 for the ceremony.....we are planning on bringing our BOSE system for he ceremony at the blue lagoon.

          We brought our Bose system. Ours was battery operated. If yours requires an outlet I'm not sure if there is somewhere nearby to plug it in. They did not charge us the $500 :)

            Congrats on your wedding!  I am curious about the menus that were offered for your reception at the Blue Lagoon.  I have received a few different menus, and have tried to get in touch with the resort to clarify what will be available, but haven't received a response yet.  What did you choose for dinner?  Also, how was the noise factor at the Blue Lagoon?  Other brides have said that the band upstairs is pretty loud.  Did you notice that it was had to hear your guests/music/etc?

            We heard that the noise might be a problem, so we planned to have speeches done before the band starts (9pm, I think). I've heard that if you give them a nice tip they will play quieter music or start up a bit later. Did they send you a menu for Blue Lagoon? We went with option 10 and it was great! I may still have copies of the menu if you want them. I can email them to you.

              Does anyone know...for the ceremony - for the bridal march, processional, recessional, etc music, do they have someone that plays it or do I need to get one of my guests to do it?  i've chosen the Island Pearl package so it includes speakers/docking station but when I asked the WC who plays the music she didn't respond.  Also, is it just an Ipod station or is it a CD player too?

                It seems as though the Wedding department is very busy. I have sent several emails with questions about the menu. I even had to ask who my coordinator was and they were like oh its Nakeisha. So I sent her an email today so hopefully we can get these things ironed out soon.

                Was # 10 the "Herb Marinated Grilled Atlantic Salmon with Pan Roasted Beef Tenderloin Wellington"? I just want to make sure that is the same menu that we have to choose from.  If so, I think we are going with the surf 'n turf :)  Do you have to have the same dinner for each guest, or can you offer a few different options to them?  Also, how far in advance did you choose the menu?  Just wondering if I need to email someone ahead of time, or if I make the selections when I meet with the wedding coordinator when I get there.

                 

                I hope you decide to post some pictures when you get a chance!

                  MrsJones1, when are you getting married.  I finally just heard from my wc today.  She did send me all the menus.  If you would like, give me your email address and i can send them to you

                    Hi happyfamily,

                    Our wedding is in March 23 2013. I do have the menu for the Poseidon (where our reception is) . In one email she told me 1 entree but in another she said 2 entrees I could choose from. I want to take the dessert off and have my wedding cake served at the restaurant rather than at the ceremony. Is the salad a salad bar ? is it soup or salad or appetizer? Who is your WC? Any info would be great.
