We are getting married June 14, 2016. I am needing ideas on what people do for their guest activities.

Is everyone planning a welcome party? If so are you paying for private cocktail hour, or having everyone just meet at bar? We are wanting to do group excursion one day. Our group will range from 1-75 years old so not sure what will work for that range.

Are you offering guests one paid activity and list of optional ones for other days that are non paid? I thought about putting list of local ideas from golf tee costs to snorkel in the oot packet so guests can pick their own.

We are hosting a private catamaran cruise (3 hours, open bar and snacks) on Friday.  Outside of that and the typical wedding stuff (ceremony, photos, reception), everyone is on their own.  

 

We made a list of potential excursions and put them on our website, but we are not offering to make arrangements for anything else.  It's too much to manage and we figured people wanted some time to do their own thing.

Hi brides! Congrats to everyone on their upcoming weddings! We have booked for October 2016, and we are still waiting to receive confirmation on date, time and locations. We still haven't received any cost details about services offered.

 

Does anyone know how much the bridal suite is and how to reserve it?

Can you extend your private reception?

Is there a cost to set up decorations you are bringing?

 

Thanks :)

The contract is 150 for suite. I just sent it in. I emailed the spa directly to ask and they sent me paperwork. We are extending our reception by a hour- you just pay the 12/18pp for alcohol. You pay based on initial number of people, not on how many stay during the extended time. I asked, just in case people want to leave early.

 

I'm curious about setup costs too. My WC said 20% of their cost would apply to things I bring other than favors, menus, table numbers. Wondered if it was the personalization part that allows it to be used free.

I just got an email saying the suite is confirmed for June. I have been emailing Vanessa, she is the spa manager.  spa.nolpc@nowresorts.com

Thanks you so much! I really appreciate the info! I'm dying to get the pricing for extras from the resort to start planning.

 

If I hear anything I'll be sure to post :)

 

Thanks again!

That's exactly who we are using.   We really wanted things to be simple... this is going to be our gift to everyone, vs. doing a tote bag or any other kind of favor.  I can't wait!

@@AshleyNYC323 OMG! That's so awesome! How is your planning going? We're planning on doing a reception on the boat! Isn't it so cool how they can pick up your guests on the beach at the resort? Unfortunately I'm staying at a resort where they can't do this.

It is cool - that is a big part of why we picked them ... we just want everything to be super simple.

Our planning is pretty much done!    We have all of our final RSVPs and everyone's final payment is due Jan 15.

After that, I just need to move across the country, find a new job, find a house.... lol

Our life situation is funny so the wedding is actually last on my list right now.

 

How about yours???

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
