My wedding date is scheduled for: November 18th/2013.
Here is what I've selected for my wedding dinner/reception:
*$1000.00 for the private rental of the Plantation Restaurant for 4 hours
*$10.50 pp for the dinner + $10.00 pp for the Open Bar with Bartender
*$200/hour x3 hours for the rental of the DJ Equipment (my brother will be djing with his ipod/lap top)
NOTES: I went with Jan's Flowers for my florals and decor as I found their pricing to be quite reasonable in comparison to Tai Flora's. She only charges $1 per chair bow (as opposed to the $4 each that the RIU charges) and she is contracted to the RIU so there will be no Vendor Fee to use her services.
I hope you find this information helpful!

Hi I have read all the way thur yet but checking to see if you went with the RIU and what time did you pick I have a July 2014 date... maybe we can help each other out a lot if your going a month before me...

Hi OrdinaryGirl, Thank you so much for all the info you have giving this far... however I do have some more question for you if possible. Can you tell me after your visit what did you decided to do for dinner/reception? If your okay with sharing did you see the decoration that they have for the packages? is that what made you decide to bring your on? Thank you in advance for your help with this... O can you also share about how many guest will you have?
