    Lizz, I forgot to ask you if there is a maximum number of people that the $500 Plantation rental covers? If I am having 65 guests and am using the inclusive menu that you provided, I won't have to pay anything extra.....right??

      Chandlyn did not say that there is a maximum number. I told her that I am expecting 65-80 guests and she told me the charge is $250 per hour for the Plantation.

        Ok, I got an email back from Nekeisha. It's not too clear, I'll let you guys interpret it:

        This is my email to Chandlyn:

        "Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am having the basic included menu for my reception dinner at the Plantation. Do the guests need to decide beforehand what entree they want, or do they do that at the time of the dinner? Will menus be on the table or should I print them out for my guests? Also, I noticed wine and beer are included. Does that mean the open bar I am paying for is just for mixed drinks and other cocktails?
        Thank you for all of your help, Lizz"

        And this is Nekeisha's reply:
        "Hi Lizz
        Menu will be on the table. For open bar this is a private bar which reserve ONLY for your wedding guest and it also include beer and other mixed liquior along with drink.
        Regard, Nekeisha"

            I number each question that I have for Chandalyn. That way she will have to address every question. There is usually still missing information, but not as much.

              I'll write back and do it that way, not sure if I'll get a better response, but it's worth a shot.

                Hi everyone, but can I ask a quick question? Sorry it's off topic!
                Has anyone noticed when booking the same venues, and entertainment as others that the price quoted varies? For example, bookings in January vs. a bride getting married in May (possibly due to peak season)?
                Thanks for any input!

                  It seems to me like the prices seem to be the same overall. Have you noticed anything specific?

                    I don't think you have to pay any extras for outside guests. I think the $50.00 includes dinner and drinks unless you decide to go with an upgraded menu then you would pay extra per person on top of the $50.00. Are you paying for your outside guests to come for the day? We might have a couple guests staying at a different resort and I wasn't sure whether we should pay the visiting fees or them?

                      I haven't noticed but our wedding date is for February so fairly close to yours. Have you seen different quoted pricing??
