@jackielemman your pictures are beautiful. My ceremony will be at the Bugambilias Gazebo and reception in a ballroom (I asked for star, but we'll see). You definitely should do a how to guide under 10k! Your pictures are beautiful. Did you do video? It's great that you had 40 guests and hit the 75 nights. Did you honeymoon at Moon too? How do they treat honeymooners? My friend honeymooned at Sun Palace and loved it. The cigar tolling sounds great and the mariachi is an awesome touch, I'm sure my fiance will say no to exrra expenses our budget is 9k including our flights and honeymoon. Did you rent you're tablecloths too? I was thinking of buying them online, I want navy tables with gold accents and hints of pink

So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.

Thank you!!

We did not honeymoon... we were afraid the family would stay longer and interrupt our honeymoon! We will be going back in July--Probably the Sun palace! We chose not to do video-- although after seeing all of the photos and how well everything turned out I kind of wish we had the money to hire someone. Its just so expensive. it was hard enough to find photography under $2000. 

We rented the coral table clothes-- should have bought and brought them though. They were light weight and ended up costing us $30 a table cloth! I bought the gold runners from an Etsy shop, plastic LED candles from Target in the garden section and the small shells and starfish on clearance with coupons at Michaels Craft store. We made paper cut out wraps for all of the candles using a paper puncher from Michaels and it created a really simple and inexpensive candle lanterns. If I can get everything unpacked I will be selling the 5 gold runners that I used and the candles, they are super light weight! Let me know if you're interested. Look on craigslist for tablecloths you'd be shocked to see how cheap they are on there! People are giving away those things!! If you get light almost sheer ones they'll look great over the basic white linens that they offer. We also bought out chair ties from craigslist for less than $5-- all 100 of them!!!! I have navy blue chair ties if you'd like them as well. Didn't end up taking them with us.

 

If you don't hit the free unlimited events don't fret. Just make dinner plans with your guests during your stay-- they wont even know the difference between a private event and enjoying a nice dinner with you and your FI. Theres no real rehearsal even needed!

Oh that's a great idea thank you, I would love the chair ties. I would also love an outdoor reception but fh wants a ballroom, so we will slee paying more to make it look like something. I'm worried that the ballrooms look dated since many people aren't choosing yo use them @jackielemman
My colors are navy and gold with hints of pink. Did the chairs come with the cushions?

Everything came out great and you look beautiful!   Thank you for posting your pictures.  We are having our reception at Tucan Terrace and were thinking of getting the columns and string lights.  So glad you posted a pic so we can see how it would look.  Love it.    Let me know if you do decide to sell your gold table runners or coral sashes.  Would be interested in them!   Also, where did you get your starfish/ seashell chair hangers from?    I thought about making some not sure how hard its going to be.

Also, where did you find the mosquito bracelets?

Also, how windy was it on the terrace area?   my vases I'm using are made out of cardboard boxes just seeing if I should put something inside so they don't blow away or do you think they would be okay?

@misbosox

 

I made the starfish chair ties. I will be selling those as well. Private message me so I have it in my inbox. I will work tomorrow on inventory and getting everything pictured. I'd be glad to sell everything to you at a great price. I made everything and coupon like crazy so my costs were relatively low!! The starfish are the most expensive items!!

 

It was windy at the terrace. I would recommend using some kind of weight in your center pieces.

    Wow, what a great review. I leave in less than two weeks and am even more excited about the wedding!

    Can I ask you what you used as a standard percentage for tipping? How much did you give your onsite coordinator?

    Ahhh 12 days :)

    I forgot to mention that we had individual packets of powdered gatorade, Aleve and Pepto available at our hangover breakfast. I have never seen people flock to pepto and gatorade so fast. You cant find gatorade on property! 

     

    The pepto came in handy... everyone needed it after a few days of unlimited eating and drinking! :(

     

    Redbulls are also $6 a can in the gift shop. They don't have them anywhere else on property. If you have people who like energy drinks, let them know to bring their own!!


    @llevasseur

     

    I sent you a message! :)
