      Hi fellow brides!  I was wondering 2 things:

       

      1. What did you think if Castaways if you had our reception there?  Our reception is from 7-11pm on June 30th 2013 and we are booked there, but I'm having second thoughts on the location fearing it may be too hot or if there are mosquitoes.  Maybe the breeze and the fans (extra rental cost) will be enough?

       

      2.  Has anyone used a photobooth at their reception?  If so, did you set this up through Now Jade or outside vendor?  Cost?

       

      Thanks!

          It's like a seafoam green, or a turquoise-y colour :)

            gorgeous flowers!! Something to keep in mind, if the resort can't get the color you want, they have a professional company that airbrushes them at no extra charge! That's right, they will make any flower any color for you!! We'd never heard of it before but they turned out really nice and no one even knew they were "painted"! Just thought I'd mention the option...

            You're kidding? That's amazing!! geez, all the tips and tricks they don't tell you :)

            Thank you MrsMills!

It's free!! And you may even get a beautiful picture from it too!!

            Thank you for this information, I am so glad I am getting all this info off this site i would NEVA have thought to ask for a trial photo shoot :-)

            Hi

             

            I have read in the wedding guide that if you make a booking of 10+ more to have your reception at one of the restaurants there is an additional set up fee of $20 per person. Due to budgets we are considering doing this, however there will be 20 of us does anyone know if it would be possible to book two separate tables of 10 (but request them to be together) this way we would avoid the set up costs of $400, I do not like the idea of paying these fees at an all inclusive restaurant when everyone has to have the set menu??

             

            20 of us went out for food yesterday and sat on one long table which prevented us from interacting with the whole group, so I feel that 2 seperate tables of 10 would work better anyway but not sure if they would still consider this as 1 group?

             

            If anyone has past experince or knowledge on this it would be greatly received.

             

            Thank you

            x

              My underatanding is that the number of tables doesn't matter, its the number of people. I agree that they should not charge for a non-private dinner in a restaurant.

              Thank you, was hoping to eliminate that cost! never mind I am sure we will sort something.

               

              I feel having an early wedding at 11am we have a lot to do to keep the guests entertained but hey ho its a holiday too so I a sure they wont get bored.
