@Britt How did the iPod go? We are considering that option.

    @megan224 I think the iPod went well. The only issue I would say we had with music was that it could have been a little louder but because of  the resort we weren't allowed to which makes sense because of the other guests. I think especially for dinner and cocktail hour paying for a DJ would have been a waste. I did have a lot of frustration making the playlist and getting them onto a device that would allow me to download the wedding DJ app but once i resigned to the fact that the iPad wasn't going to work and used my iPhone then it was super easy. We had a good list of dance music so I think every part of it was great. I don't regret not getting a DJ!

      Thank you :) 

      Yes we qualified for unlimited functions, with this we had a welcome dinner and then the cocktail hour and 2 hour dinner at the wedding for free. The additional hours we paid $60 per table per hour. 

      The end of last march we had to have our deposits in so it was a few months after that, maybe June, that we choose the actual date (although we didn't have many options with their rules so we just went with what they gave us, I did choose the time though).

      Did you have the cocktail hour at the same location as the reception dinner? Was the area big enough to have a cocktail hour area and then the reception area?

        We had both our reception and cocktail hour on the Caribbean Terrace. I felt that it fit perfectly for the number of guests we had! (this area they do charge you a set up fee per person for both cocktail hour and reception).

        Here is my photo of the set up (dance floor behind)

          Hi again :)
          Can I ask.. Did you get any complimentary nights or hotel room upgrades? Do you know what your guests paid for hotels, flight?

            Hi! I really did love the Caribbean beach location over the other beach options! There was a wedding set up just down the beach from my ceremony site the night of our wedding, I am not exactly sure what terrace it would be but it looked like a beautiful location. I did really like the Caribbean terrace but I must admit I didn't see many other locations besides it and the chapel garden.  


            Hi again :)

            We didn't book right through the resort so our complimentary nights may have been a tad different but for every 11 ppl we got one person free. In the end that was 4 ppl free, we used this to lower the cost for all the guest so we didn't really see it.

            We also did not get any sort of upgrade, which was one of my only turn offs of our stay. They didn't even really try to make us feel special or even really look to see if a room upgrade was available :(.

            We paid $1773pp for garden view rooms... that was our all inclusive price. $1994 for Ocean view.
