    You have a great plan. We stayed at a top floor casita the whole time, wonderful, but if you can stay at a swim-up casita would be the best it's more like a honeymoon and a little away. The pool bar waiter comes right to your swim up to get your drinks, the smaller pool and swim up bar are not crowded.

      We are doing 7 nights in a regular room while our guests are there and then 7 nights in a Casitas so we get a honeymoon out of the second week. We have stayed at other resorts for 7 days and always felt it was never long enough. I think the first few days will be a bit of a whirlwind anyways so the more time there the better, 11 days is probably going to be perfect for you! What day of your trip does your wedding fall on?

          I just got my pro pictures back if you want to check them out! I think they pretty much cover the whole resort. I will warn you though....there are a lot of them!!!

                Wow this thread got active since the last time I was here. So many pages to get through...lol

                I'm working with Valeria for our November 10th wedding. Laurenvuitton it looks like we will be there around the same time. What are your arrival/departure dates?

                I have to check out dimplz review but I will be around from now on. It's always nice to connect with brides that are in the same boat. Looking forward to getting to know you girls :)

                  Hey Punkie! We are getting there on Tuesday the 9th! Im going through Carolina right now and thinking about doing a site visit in October to finalize everything so I can relax when we get there and just worry about all the other crap :) How long are you going to be at the resort and are you staying there for your honeymoon?? Have a great long weekend everyone (well everyone in the US)! haha

                    Hey Lauren! We are only there for the week from the 7th-14th. We couldn't afford to stay there for our honeymoon since we are paying for everything ourselves. We are hoping to get away for 5 days when we get back. We are lucky that where we live we aren't far away from some really nice honeymoon locations so I know we'll still do something nice. I really wish we could have done a site visit but it just wasn't in the budget. I'll have to live vicariously through you and yours :)

                    So how are everyone's projects coming along? Anyone doing any big DIY projects? So far I've managed to get my luggage tags, key card holders, candle centerpieces for cocktail party and most of my OOT bag stuff done. I think I got too excited and did them to soon. Now I'm bored and want more stuff to do. Oops! haha

                      Thank you so much for sharing with us. Your wedding was beautiful and you were a gorgeous bride. And thanks for your great, detailed review. It was so helpful. I don't know if you saw it on your review but I wondered how far you have to walk to get to Gazebo 55? I guess I should ask how long into a song did you walk before you got to the gazebo? I have a song I want to walk in to but I don't know how much time I have to play the song. I spaz over the littlest things I think. TIA! :)
