ROR Reception: Poolside vs. Plantation?

Recommended Posts

According to Chandlyn the only places you can have a reception at ROR is at the poolside, beach, or at the Plantation. I thought I had heard about other restaurants besides Plantation on this forum? Also, has anyone opted for the poolside reception? That sounds like it would be awesome! Any pics? Which poolside? Could it accomodate 100 people?

 

Yes -- I'm new at this :) I'm sure I'm anxious for nothing...

 

right?

 

Hope ya'll are doing well! It's 80 and sunny here in good ole' Minneapolis...i.e. we're having a blizzard right now.

Thanks Mo!! I just finished reading your post on your ROR experience. THANKS -- such a blessing...

 

Mammee is not an option I don't think. Tomme and I have too many people coming. Hopefully that might change over the next few months wink.gif

Hello! I am a new ROR bride and I am looking into the poolside option for our reception, I think it could be so gorgeous. I'm wondering if any ROR brides have seen this set up yet? Sorry if I am just repeating this question, I have a LOT more wonderful forum to search through!

Hey Dara!!

welcome4.gifto the forum!!

I'm having my reception at the plantation...mostly because im having about 115 guests doh.gif. If you're having a larger party, my suggestion would be the plantation...not sure if poolside can accomodate a huge wedding party...but then again I've never been, the space may be huge.

Ok I got a little more info from my travel agent. She said that it is $50 per person, but I am not sure about the menu. I know the beach reception menu is more like a barbeque for $50 pp, and this is not what I would want for poolside, especially because everyone seems to be raving about the food in mamme bay and the plantation. I am also not sure if that would include open bar...maybe another $10 per person?? She said it is set up along one of the sides of the jr. suites infinity pool, and the reception cannot begin until after 6:30. She said it could accomodate my 75 guests with dancing, but suggested I do the disco? But after seeing all the fab pics, I'd definitely want the BEACH!!!

I have been really leaning towards the pool. I would like to set up luminaries and i think it would look beautiful. Of course, I wish i could see pics of this. I think regardless of what I choose, it will be beautiful though

We are having a beach reception from 6:30 - 10:30 (hopefully more like 11ish). It is $50 per person and includes open bar, set up and 3 different menus and tiki torches. The dinner is buffet and would cost extra to be served. We went back and forth between the pool and beach but figured the beach because when is the next chance we'll be able to dance in the sand? :-) Everyone is excited about it. We are using tiki torches provided by Chandlyn and also have 100 luminaries to set out.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
