I may bring my own aisle runner. Steel band will play the processional, religious ceremony, following will be pictures of bride and groom and immediate family, maybe adding on light h'ords following ceremony for guests while we take our pictures / steel band will continue to play for 1 hour

with Calla lillies instead.

 

I'm still trying to find ways to decorate my arch/gazebo, but this is all I have for now. Any flower centerpiece that I choose will be accented with different candle (heights).

 

After the reception, I will prob rent out the disco. I haven't decided which restaurant I will have the dinner but it won't be mammee bay. I don't want long tables.....i would prefer the 8 persons to a table option

 

Also, here are the wedding favors that I'm going to use:

Wow! You really have a lot of it together! I love all of the stuff you have picked out already! What is your wedding date?

 

Are you using the photographer at the resort or an outside photographer?

 

I am using the Plantation Restaurant for the reception dinner. Chandlyn told me that they can do tables of 8 there. Also, I think you need to use that restaurant if your party is more than 60. I'm waiting to hear back from her so I know what color table linens are provided.

Thanks TropicalBride!!

 

Liz,

 

My wedding is May 10, 2008 @ 4:00pm

 

 

I will bring my own photographer and he will be a guest at the hotel. He is really a friend of mine, but he dabble's in photography on the side and has some good equipment. I wanted to splurge and get an excellent quality, documentary style photgrapher, but it isn't in the budget, so we will have to make do.

 

I may order the lowest photo package that riu offers just to get a couple of prints. I will also hire the videographer.

 

Mo:

Does the plaintation have room for dancing and DJ set-up?

I just saw your "newbie" post about the date... We'll be there at the same time!

The Plantation does have room for a dj and dancing? I believe it is $150 per hour for the dj.

That's true, because I'm not sure if the Plantation Restauarant would have really good speakers or a sound system the same way the disco probably has.

 

Lizz...........whhaaaahoooo........i'll have to peek in on your ceremony to "borrow" some last minute inspiration.......lol

What time are you scheduled for?

 

We will be at the resort from May 6 - 20th.......our guests will be there from May 7th - 12th. I wanted them to come early and enjoy themselves so they can LEAVE directly after our wedding. That's when our honeymoon begins. :-)

Actually, I'll be peeking in on yours...lol! We will be there from May 10th til I think maybe the 20th (not sure, we may go to another resort on the 18th when our guests leave). Our wedding is on the 16th and our guests are leaving on the 18th. Unfortunately, I got stuck with the noon time, which I'm not too happy about, but there's nothing I can do about it now...oh well! We'll definitely need to hang out and have a drink (or 10) while we're there elefant.gif

Wow... you really have everything down don't you. Sounds great. Like the other girls said if you have over 50 you have to rent out the plantation. We are also doing the beach gazebo at 4, dinner at the plantation, then renting the disco for dancing.

chicago, how many guests are you having. I'm still trying to figure out the way the plated dinner works. Is something already included in the "free" package or do I have to pay per person for each plate?
