I booked the Love Package.  I have about 15 attendees coming in.  I think the Love package will be fine since my group plans to party it up at the resort during our stay.   We are getting married in the chapel, which from the pictures is beautiful.   Attached is a link (hopefully I did this right) with some info about the private events menu, wedding packages, spa info.   Hope this helps ease some of the stress.

I arrive on the 15th, my family and friends arrive on the 16th.  We are having a semi-private welcome dinner on the 16th, the wedding and semi-private dinner on the 17th then I am relaxing until the 21st.  I am also using the makeup artist/hair stylist on staff.  We didn't want to waste a lot of money on doing too much since we are a little older and have seen friends waste thousands on weddings.  You will definitely notice my crew at the resort, LOL!  We will be pretty rambunctious.

Hi all,

 

my wedding day was perfect! This resort was amazing. I've been to a few all inclusive resorts and I can honestly say I had the best experience at this one. We met up with our wedding planner the second day we were there and she was so helpful and very organized. She went through the plan for the day in detail and showed me where we would be having our ceremony and reception party.

 

Wedding package:

We went with the Free wedding package and paid an extra fee for our additional guests. The Free package only includes 10 guests. This package made more sense to us since we didn't require most of the inclusions that the other packages offered.  I simply paid the a la carte prices for specific inclusions that I wanted. For example, I paid an extra $50 for my maid of honor's flower bouquet. I also an extra fee for a few chairs at the ceremony.

 

Flowers:

My bouquet was beautiful. I asked for specific colours and that's what I got. My maid of honor got the same flowers/colours but her bouquet was a bit smaller. My bouquet was included in the Free package. We didn't get any additional flowers for the ceremony or reception.

 

Make up and Hair:

Both done by my maid of honor

 

Photographer:

We went with one of the resort's photographer. We choose the bronze package - $650 usd. We are very happy with our photos. The photographer was very nice and professional. He made sure we got enough photos to choose from.

 

Ceremony location:

Sky wedding. This is hands down the best location there to get married. It's on a rooftop of the Hideaway section. It overlooks the ocean. It's so beautiful that there isn't a need for flowers IMO. Our guests were greeted with sparkling wine and their glasses were topped up until the ceremony began. After the ceremony we were all given sparkling wine and we were able to mingle and have our photos taken for about 30 mins afterwards. Our ceremony music was played using our own iPod on the resort's stereo system.

 

Reception dinner:

Our semi private dinner was held at the Gourmet Marche. This is the resorts main Buffet restaurant. We were given a room with glass doors so it was fairly private. The food at this restaurant is amazing even though it's a buffet. I would recommend it if you are going with a semi private dinner. Our wedding cake was also included. It was very pretty, however the cake itself was a little dry. That didn't bother us since there was lots of desert to choose from at the buffet.

 

Reception party:

We choose to have our party at one of the beach bars. The beach bars have lots of seating and are very close to the ocean. We had about 4 or 5 servers/bartenders and they were all fantastic. We were very pleased with the service that night. We choose to bring our own Bluetooth speakers and our own music (iPod), and IMO that's all you need at this location. We paid a fee for the open bar for 3 hours, as well as a fee for the location. These fees can be found in the a la carte pricing.

 

I would definitely recommend this resort to get married at. Even some of our guests told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. My advice to everyone is to keep it simple and relax! If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Hi! Just booking my wedding for April 2016 and was wondering if there is wheelchair access to the Sky roof deck location. Thanks!

Everyone must take an elevator to access the Sky roof. I'm not sure if its fully wheelchair accessible though. To be certain I would definitely contact the resort and ask.
