So there are a couple of threads about the Beloved Hotel. Everyone seems to enjoy the hotel, and the reviews on Trip Advisor are stellar. I don't doubt that the hotel is a great place to spend a week, but I'm looking for some reassurance about the wedding aspect.
When we decided on a destination wedding, I was thinking I'd just chose a wedding package with everything included and show up with my dress. But it seems like the Beloved doesn't have "packages," just the base package that you then add on to. And it doesn't seem like you get much in the base package... that most people pay extra for a prettier ceremony canopy, table centerpieces, and reception decorations. I'd rather not plan all these little details.
I'm also not too thrilled about having to work with the WC at the hotel, then someone else for the decorations and flowers (Planner1 Events, I believe?), then a separate photographer (because I don't like the one they contract with). Plus all the additional charges! Am I getting the wrong impression about the hotel? Or am I overthinking things? I'd love to hear what other brides thought of the planning process.
