@salutvie the free events promo, you will still have to pay for any decorations, music, speakers for your own music, candles, lighting etc.
I'm using my free events promo for my welcome lunch, rehearsal dinner & cocktails afterwards "white party", and our wedding reception. My wedding is on Monday May 25th, so this worked for me. I was going to have a farewell brunch with my free events but decided to cancel, I didn't want to have too many events and overwhelm my guests.
So the free events does come in handy. Just know that you can only pick 1 food item for the main course, if you allow 2 options, you have to pay $5/person. For example, I have 2 options for my wedding reception (fish and steak) so I have to pay about $250 for food altogether, which still isn't bad....
I like the free events promo, b/c you can have all the events you really want, just be conscientious of your guests and their time.
@salutvie If you lock it in now, can they honor the cheaper rates per person? My rate is $698/person 3 nights / 4 days. Maybe if you can get a good deal on flights to keep everything under $1300 total per person that won't be that bad, and if your guest have over a year to make payments then they cannot complain! If you give notice, then there is no reason for them to say you're being unreasonable.
