@racht33 I only paid an additional $15 per person for my additional guests as we cancelled the cocktail hour.

Is or did anyone have a hard time communicating with their wedding coordinator? Mine is Elisa and I sent a email a week ago and no response. I also sent one to David too?!

@danni I didn't. I had her and she typically responded within 3 days. Resend the email.

@smileitseb It's so nice to see you are still on the forum and kind enough to answer questions!!

 

My wedding is just about a month away!! :D I've been busy every day finalizing all the little details! My biggest decision right now is whether to extend our reception an extra hour. I'm so torn because I really do not want to spend the extra $, however, I feel like the 3 hours will fly by and I really want my guests to enjoy the party! I'm just not sure if it would be better to end the reception and continue the party at Desires.

 

I remember you saying you extended your reception. Was it worth it? Did you feel like the night flew by quickly? Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!

@smileitseb thank you for your reply. and A LOT of things have changed in just a minor of months with charges ahhh!! Even the additional charge for people over 20 how gone up to 83 pp. man!! But we're just rolling with whatever comes. Negotiating is never off the table for me!! Thank you again!!

@Sheaka I dont think Ill get that break since im trying to see if we can scratch the cocktail hour completely and extend the reception ( i believe that 15 dollars a person) So since im still using it  the " time" I dont think ill get that break.

@racht33, I also extended my reception to 4 hours. Tell her that you want to cancel the cocktail hour and ask her what would the price be for the guests over 20. See what she says. That was a deciding factor for us .

@fhk815 i felt the night definitely flew by so so so quick!!!!!! if i were you, id definitely extend, this is prob the best day of your life, extend it ! :) Since we didn't have a formal cocktail hour, they allowed me to extend for $12 a person for every person over 20 but I also had to rent the sound system for the extra hour. and YOURS IS COMING UP so quick!!! i know you're so excited, can't wait to see your pics :)

 

@racht33 yes always negotiate!!! i told them my budget and they made sure i had everything i wanted :) 

 

@danni hmm maybe send elisa another email? she may have overlooked it bc she responds faster than a week usually. 


58 guests plus bride and groom
Ceremony: Gazebo
Reception: Pool Deck

@smileitseb Thanks for your response and advice! Your right, it is going to be the best day of my life and I might as well live it up! I talked to my fiancé and we decided to extend the reception. :)

    @smileitseb we also extended our reception after hearing everyone's input. We cancelled the formal cocktail hour completely. Everyone here has been a huge help!! We also are going with adventure for video because they were actually less money than the video package at digital cinemas. Thank you for the info and help
