That's a great price and if you don't add many more extras you can totally stay in that ballpark!!! How many guests do you have and/or anticipate? Hahha I remember stalking my numbers like a hualk to ensure I got the free package!

The extra flowers and extra 4 hours of open bar is what jacked up our cost.

    I think we'll probably end up with maybe 45? Totally guessing. I'm going to add some tiki torches and lanterns for sure. Photography probably pretty basic. I was wondering, how do they set up lighting inside the palapa?

    That's how many we had in total :)

    There is regular lighting on the posts in the palapa. You can also pay to have the lighted Chinese lanterns. They were about $100 I believe. I was hesitant to get them so she threw them in for free, but honestly I thought they were worth the money and would have paid for them.

      Ya those are on the add on list. I wonder if I could ask them to change the lighting colour without incurring extra cost.

      Changing the lighting on the posts may be possible. You'll find they have different colored lighting effects all over the resort. Changing the light color in the hanging Chinese lanterns I doubt. They are pretty high up and if they would do it I would assume a set up fee would be charged for the 'hassle'. The lanterns are always there. If you pay they turn the lights on. If you don't they are hanging with no lights. That's what my WC told me anyways in so many words ' I'll just throw them in for free cause they are there and just a flick of the switch'

        I added you with a message! :)

        And yes, I'm thinking just the posts to possibly purple. Actually I think I'll ask Adriana.

        It doesn't show the messages or I don't know where to see them. If a Krista F is reading this let me know too bahah :)

        Edit - I figured it out.

        You should ask. You'll notice at night after your wedding the ceremony area is lit up in green. I'll find a pic.

        @JoannaBanana Did Adriana send you 2016 price list? I wonder if the honor the 2015 prices if you booked prior to the 2016 coming out? I ended up doing the presidential package but now after reading your thread I am wondering I should have just done the free package and then upgraded.. these decisions seem impossible.

        They honored the 2014 prices for me. What I did was make a list of my must haves and then priced out each package with the upgrades. Even with all my upgrades I was still cheaper than the presidential package as it didn't include some things I needed but had lots I didn't. I'd suggest maybe trying that? You can change your package I believe since you already locked in the palapa.

        Ok good to know! @calgarybride2015 do you know if you are able to add on the welcome dinner to the free package? My parents are contributing the wedding and my dad really wants to do this, not sure if I have it in me to take it away from him lol
