    Here is what I've selected for my wedding dinner/reception:

    *$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!

    Wow $1 per chair bow is a great deal! I am going to start looking at Jan's flowers. Thanks so much!

      For the plantation, I know that it is $500 for 2 hours and $1000 for 4 hours. How much is it per person? Is it  $10.50  per person even if its over 40 people or does it cost $55 per person when it is 41+ people? Thanks in advance for all the help!!!

        Getting married on Nov 11 in ROR....Wanted an updated price list.  Do you have it.  Is there any way you can share some current pricing on pool side reception.  Are you doing a DJ there or using the disco?  Any info on current price structure would be sooo sooo helpful so I know what to plan for.  

         

        Thanks so much

          Yes I would appreciate the latest updates on prices too because I get more and more confused every day. Thank you.

            Hey Jessica!

             

            So, I didn't know you could do a private booking of the Plantation restaurant for only 2 hours at $500, so I'm not certain how the pp pricing works for dinner and open bar, etc.  Since I am doing the private dinner/reception for the full 4 hours at the Plantation restaurant, I am paying the $1000 for the venue plus an additional $10.50 pp for the steakhouse dinner and another $10.00 pp for the Open Bar with Bartender.  Once you decide to do a private reception, the amount of people attending does not affect the cost per person. I am having roughly 40-50 guests myself. 

             

            Where did you get the $55 price point from?  I know there is a $67 pp charge if you book a private reception either poolside or on the beach + the $600 set up fee..and this does include an open bar with bartender for your guests.  And if you are doing the dinner and dancing (full 4 hour duration) then this $67 pp is still charged regardless of how many people attend as you are opting for a private reception.  At least, this is how I understand it...It can start to get pretty pricey!!!

                We send ours 6 months in advance. We sent it though Purolator they where the cheapest and it got there in two days and it was sent from Ottawa Canada.

                    Hi there!

                     

                    I am getting married June 7th, 2014. Have you already gotten married? I would be interested in seeing the pricing quotes from Keisha, though I know they will be different next year. If you already got married, how did it turn out? I am SO nervous about waiting a few days before the wedding to pick out flowers/decorations. What was your experience like? Thanks so much!
