Tell me everything you know about Rix Lounge!

The bug has been put in my ear about a wedding ceremony at Rix Lounge in Coronado Springs and now I'm kind of obsessed to learn more! I also saw this post on Magical Day Weddings and was blown away with how beautiful it is!

This is pretty much all I know. Have you gotten married there? What was your experience?

Thanks!

Apparently weddings at Rix isn't a real popular choice? Haha

I have a ton of pictures, I just need to get them uploaded for you.
  • There are no venue fees or room-night minimums, just food and beverage minimums of $2,000 for Las Ventanas, the room adjacent to the main bar area; $7,000 for half of Rix Lounge; or $15,000 for the entire lounge and Las Ventanas.
  • 6.5% sales tax and a 21% service fee
  • A $250 “wedding specialization” fee covers the cake cutting, a free bottle of Champagne for the bride and groom, and the administration costs
  • The ceremony fee of $1,000 covers the cost of turning Las Ventanas from a ceremony venue into a reception venue while you and your guests enjoy a cocktail hour next door in Rix Lounge.
  • Only food and beverage (excluding wedding cake) must be provided by Rix—all other services are provided by outside vendors. Rix has a list of preferred vendors, but there is no fee for choosing your own, with the exception of $100/hour (3-hour minimum) for bringing in a DJ not on the preferred list.

They do let you have just the ceremony there and I believe that if you do that you don't have to pay the $250 specialization fee if you're not having a cake cutting. You could add your cake cutting to your ceremony and pay the $250 however and then it would be a more similar setup to Escape weddings. If you just have a ceremony you would not have to meet the $2,000 F&B mins

I forgot to explicitly say though that the cake cutting includes a bottle of champagne for the bride and groom (worth $200) and the labor costs of having staff get plates, cut the cake, serve it, etc. It DOES NOT include the cake itself, you would need to organize that with either your own choice of vendor or one of Rix Lounge's preferred vendors. Just to clarify

I know, doesn't it? I just haven't been able to find much on it. I have the PassPorters Disney Weddings book and looked all through it and couldn't find anything. Maybe though if I had the e-book version it would show something.

I looked into Rix when we were first deciding on venues for the wedding and I loved the way it looked and the vibe it had. Unfortunately I didn't have a great experience with two of the event coordinators there so that deterred me from working with them. instead i went with the swan and dolphin. Otherwise it's a great price for the venue!!

The two most recent versions of the e-book have info on and photos of Rix Lounge, along with Shades of Green and the Swan & Dolphin, in a separate chapter. If you've already purchased the e-book you can download the latest version for free by logging back into your order.
