Thats good I've been keeping an eye on my friends too.. I told them from day 1 it was a destination wedding.. So everything I see them spending money I'm like hmm.. Don't forget to save for my wedding you said your coming! Magnets is a good idea, I love all the fun creative STD its so hard to pick just one. But $75 per person is ridiculous!  My limit is 30 and after that its $20 which isn't bad. What really gets me at a few of the resorts I have looked into wants to charge you to have an open bar and charge like $60 pp for a sit down dinner menu as part of the reception!. I'm like.. wait what? Am I not staying at an all inclusive resort. Why should I pay to get alcohol when I can get up and walk two steps to one of the 8 bars here for free! TALK ABOUT CRAZY.

Yea. We have to pay extra if we want a bar at our reception. Otherwise the servers have to go to the bar to get it and it just takes longer. We have decided on that yet though, it seems like a wasted expense to me, but at the same time, we only get the room for 3 hours and I've heard it can be pretty slow. But as long as the dinner is less than 45 it's a plated meal, and we get a cocktail hour with appetizers. It's a really good as long as you don't break 25 people haha!

    That is one if the reasons we chose that resort. The other reason is they have this great pergola on concrete, on the beach, so I can wear heels! We are bringing a lot of our stuff as far as decorations go, because once you get outside your package for center pieces and things it's really really high...even as far as weddings go...much more than I'm willing to pay. Are you going to have a DJ and stuff?

      I understand about the decorations, and some of the choices aren't that nice, at least the ones I saw. We need to finalize everything tomorrow with the coordinator but I want to do a gazebo after party with a Dj the cost is 500 for that. If i want open bar there at the gazebo its 25 per person. I plan to beg one of the staff to make us rum punch and set up a table with some drinks and water. Hopefully it works!  We are getting married at 12 noon which sucks but it was the only time available on that date. We will have dinner 6- 8 in one of the restaurants and cut the cake and stuff like that then jam out in the Gazebo for 2 hours.

        I fell in love with now jade instantly. Before I talked to my wedding consultant I just assumed it was out if our price range. But it wasn't I booked it as soon as we could agree on a date with the resort! Warning! They book fast and far out because they only do 2 weddings a day. So if you have your heart set on a date I would check on it. We were really open on our date though so it worked out. We did end up pushing out an extra 6 months though because we wanted a Friday
