                Wedding Checklist
Up to a year before...

   Decide upon a wedding budget.
   Draw up a tentative guest list.
   Set a suitable date for the reception and ceremony. Confirm them straight away.
    If your ceremony is to be outdoors, discuss an alternate venue in case of bad
    weather.
   Decide upon the size of the wedding party. Traditionally, the number of
    bridesmaids and groomsmen is equal.
   Nominate your Maid of Honour or Chief Bridesmaid, have your groom choose his
    best man.
   Start looking at wedding dresses and cut out pictures from magazines of those
    you like.
   Check out photographers and videographers. Ensure you ask to see examples of
    their work. Book these as early as possible as great photographers and
    videographers get booked out well in advance.
   Have a look at invitation styles. The invitations need not be ordered until 3 - 4
    months before the big day.
   Book music, either live or a DJ. Start thinking of the music types you would like.
   Choose your wedding transport.
   Commence browsing through travel guides for a honeymoon destination that's
    perfect for you and your new husband.
   Search florists and book. The final decision of your wedding flowers isn't normally
    required until six weeks before your wedding day.
   Search hairdressers and makeup artists.

Confirming
No date will be held without a deposit and signed contract. This deposit will secure
your date and can be refunded within 1 month of making the booking, there-after
the amount is not refundable.

Final Numbers
Confirmation of the number of guests must be advised a week prior to your Wed-
ding. This will constitute the minimum number of guests to be charged for.

Prices & Menus
Sample tastings are not included in the package price. Our usual restaurant cuisine
signifies our reception cuisine. Due to market conditions menus and beverage list are
subject to change without notice. Menu selection needs to be confirmed 21 days
prior to event.

Venue Hire & Music
Venue hire of up to and including no more than 5 hours is included in your reception
package. Music cannot extend beyond 10.30pm on weekends and 10pm on
weekdays, as the volume is of great concern to the resort due to our legal and
moral responsibility to both house guests and neighbours.

Confetti & Rice
As we do not want to charge an extra cleaning fee, confetti and rice are not
allowed. Rose petals or bubbles make a perfect substitute.

Resort Quiet Policy
Castaways ask all guests to respect the surrounding neighbourhood and other
resorts guests and ask that all guests leave with a minimum of noise. Wedding guests
must be informed by the bridal couple to be courteous to other resort guests by
ensuring that they quietly leave the reception area when returning to their rooms.
All children must be strictly supervised and remain with parents or guardians at all
times during the function.
