    I think we have all realized by now that if you keep asking questions there are free things and cheap ways to go about planning. I have seen posts on several sites, but thought we could all share ways we are saving money at the resort and ways to get around all the high prices.

    Anyone have some to share?

      When I asked about a private reception, Chandlyn sent me 3 menus that cost $25, $35 or $45. After asking repeatedly if there was an "included" menu, I found out that there was. This was the biggest money saver for me!!!

      Great thread...I'd love to hear more!

        This is a lesson I learned after paying 80 dollars to courier my notarized wedding documents....

        You can fax or scan and e-mail them to her

              ROR offers free rum punch & fruit punch after the ceremony, on site. I don't think they mention this anywhere.

                This is true. I didn't even know that is was gonna be there. Till I saw him when I walked down the aisle. Noone in my party even drinks. Even though they did drink that b/c they thought there was no rum in it. Though I could tell there was. I wish I had known and I would of asked for NA.

                  I'm glad I read this too. We are all staying at an AI and for the WD, I was getting $25-35 per person for quotes. I'm going to ask if there is an "included" menu because I couldn't bring myself to pay that money when everyone has already paid the resort for the meals.

                  Great tip!
