    I don't think they let you go beyond 10 at the terrace. Most of my guests just took over the lobby bar afterwards. 10 was a good time to stop. Some of my guests were already pretty drunk and whoever didn't want to retire for the night just stayed in the lobby bar to socialize.
    BTW how did you get your reception to start at 7? Mine started at 6. Are you having a cocktails for 2 hours?

    ceremony will be ending at 5pm then we do a toast and then im having pictures taken with our guests for almost 1 hour in the beach - then they quickly will go to the cocktail hour at 6pm

    Get a reservation at Chef's plate as soon as you arrive. It's yummy and fancy dining.

      Do you know what's the maximum of people to make a reservation in chefs plate? Like how many can we have sitting together?

      Hi everyone!

      So my wedding is about 2 months away. I'm in the process of picking cocktail hr food and also main entree food! Can anyone that has already had their wedding give me any input on the good and bad? Thanks!

      My guests raved about the salmon and eggplant dishes. I was not a fan of the beef though :( for main entrees.

      I had 3 tiers and a different flavor for each tier= vanilla, coffee and hazelnut. My guests loved the cake.

      Do NOT get the Mango float au tequilla for dessert. Terrible. 

      The beef medallion and chicken (I forgot) were ok but boring.

      Soup was clam chowder, that was good. The salad was alright.. nothing special.

      No, I don't know :( We moved to the Hyatt after the wedding, so it was just my husband and myself :) It was a very small place though.  I would say 12-14 people would fit.
