I do have a quick question for you, which "bonfire" did you get? I saw that they had two options. One was $500 and one was $1500, and I couldn't really tell what the difference was other then the DJ. 

 

Thanks!

You are so welcome! We did the $1500 option that included the DJ. It also included a private open bar with a bartender on the beach right next to the bonfire and all the fixin's for s'mores. So much fun! I'm not sure what the $500 option includes. Actually I don't think they had two options in April when we did ours, so you may want to double check with the WC the difference between the two packages.

Thanks again! Your wedding was gorgeous!

Thank you! We had to pay extra for the chiavari chairs (I can't totally remember but I want to say the chair upgrade was $8/chair). But if you upgrade to those chairs you have a lot of color options. We wanted silver but I think they also have black, white or brown.

 

Good luck with your wedding and plans!!!

I think the $500 bonfire only includes the bonfire and bar setup. It doesn't include the DJ or any entertainment/music.

    $500 is bonfire only. No dj no bar. $1500 for first 20 people then $25 per person after that. Since we had 60 people They gave us a discount to $20 per person...I think that applies if u have 50+

    So....if you go with the $500 bonfire, how close to one of the bars would you be? Considering all of the guests are already paying for the all-inclusive package and can drink whatever, whenever..I can't get over that you would pay that much extra for them to drink. I know this would mean you would have a private bar right there at the bonfire, but I just don't know if it seems worth it. It's like the resort is getting paid twice for the drinks and such....

    Question - I am looking at chair sashes. I'm wondering how many I will need to buy. Do they use the same ones that are on the chairs for the ceremony for the reception as well? I don't want to have to buy extras when they can just be moved over? Does anyone know how this works?

    They'll just move them over for the reception-- no need to purchase twice the amount!
