Hmm I'm not overly confrontational,  but I feel compelled to argue that with them...

 

- We are presently at 45 guests - including 1 child (under 10 years old) and 2 infants (under 2 years old).  What would the pricing be for private dinner on the beach? Can we also get the pricing for the Beach Bash?

Private beach bash – 2 hours: included for up to 25 people, for two hours: US$ 1.400 - Additional guests may be added for an additional rate of US$ 35 p/p – children under 18 years old are free of charge.

o   Stylish Lounge Seating area

o   Glowing Paper Lanterns

o   Private Bar with Bartender

o   Sound system (speakers and microphone)

o   2 Pairs of “Just-Married” Flip Flops for the Bride and Groom

o   One hour after-Party Snacks

 

The private beach bash, will depend from the weather conditions, if we were to change the party to an indoor place, the decision should be taken minimum  5 hours before the event, once we change the location to an indoor place, is not possible to moved again to the outdoor place.

 

- For the flowers, we will be bringing the bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages with us.  As these are already included in the package, is there a way we can substitute the one's offered for extra decorations for the tables (or something of that nature)?

Yes, instead the flowers included in the package – bridal bouquet and groom’s boutonniere we can add some decoration (flowers) to the tables during dinner. (maybe 2 or 3 small centerpieces)

 

- How do we go about reserving the DJ and the musical trio for the ceremony?  Is this something you take care of when we send you the filled out excel sheet?  Is it previously selected music, or are there some options?

Included in the wedding package you have one hour sound system for the ceremony, (speakers and microphone) the couple can bring their own music on an IPod or USB memory. We have reserve the musical trio for you.

 

- For the sections on the excel sheet that just have titles, is there a list of items we are supposed to choose from? (ex. Beach Party is blank underneath).  Or the menu section that just identifies kids or vegetarian (what are the choices)?

Included in the wedding package, the couple and the group have a non private wedding dinner on the wedding day, take place in one of our a la carte restaurants located at the resort, in all places, it will be other hotel guests having dinner as well, drinks included, white and red house wines, beer, sodas and water, do not includes decoration, we will use the standard decoration from the restaurant (tables and chairs from the restaurant). 

 

For groups with more than 14 guests a set menu is required, (1 appetizer, 1 main course and 1 dessert – the same for everyone – (available only for weddings, no matter which restaurant you choose. We make some exceptions for kids, allergies and vegetarian guests. See attach file.

 

Dress code wedding dinner and a la carte restaurant for men aged 12 years and over: Long trousers/pants and shirt or T-shirt with long or short sleeves. Sandals are allowed.

 

 

I think @Mels84 had a private reception at a restaurant, which is what I'm thinking of doing as well and a sound system is an extra for that....however with the beach bash it may be different...from your email it looks to be included for the beach bash.


Is anyone getting gifts for the parents?  

 

Not sure yet....I want to but I don't know what to do...I'm thinking it might be a photobook that I will give them after the wedding and an OOT bag...or get excited kit ;) before the wedding.

@Kerrierf we did a private reception not the beach bash so maybe its included in the beach bash...

We got gifts for our parents... We got pocket watches that were engraved for our dads and I made bracelets for our moms that had a small picture frame on it... I put our engagement photo on one side and a pic of us as babies on the other side (a pic of me for my mom and a pic of him for his mom)

@Mels84 that makes sense - but I was so sure I'd read it elsewhere too!  Then again, I very possibly could be making it up  :)

its all so confusing trying to deal with each and every bit of planning through email... Plus having copy and paste answers... But it will all work out... Carolina is fantastic and she will do everything to make your day perfect for you.. All the little details will make you crazy but try not to worry about them too much...

@Meandhim to add to the list: we  found little hand held battery operated fans at the dollar store - something we definitely added to the list.  Also, we found a rubber chicken, so someone will be getting that (because we were in a ridiculous mood when we went).

Haha yeah we can be when we're together.

 

We didn't get too much:

- little decorative hats

- sea shells

- decks of cards

- little baggies (to put advil in)

- then some fun stuff for specific people (such as the rubber chicken).

 

Then we'll add our printoffs

Ohh and I spy game is cute!  So far I have

  • Do Not Disturb hangers (recto verso with English and French)
  • Things to do (a list of excursions with a link to the website so that people can plan ahead and budget if they want to do something)
  • A map of the hotel (I only have a general one though, I love how you want to personalize yours)
  • Menus
  • A schedule of the week (only the stuff we planned)
  • A few things to do in Montreal (in case they're driving in the night before the flight)
  • A little note from us
