    Neato. We should meet up when we're down there 
     

    I'm actually arriving on your wedding day! I'm staying from April 19 - 27, so we kind of end up with a honeymoon before the wedding. But it works well since most of our guests are coming in that Wednesday and leaving Sunday so we will be able to spend time with them after the wedding.

        I'm getting married in April and due to our large group size, the white gazebo is our only reception option. I was thrilled about being near the water but all these posts have now made me super paranoid!! Will it be too windy?? Will my guests not enjoy it and get sandy food? Has anyone had their reception at the white gazebo? We are having a tent will that help? It won't have sides though? Your advice is appreciated!!! Also, can someone tell me if the resort uses key cards or actual keys? I am planning our welcome bags and we want a landyard in them. Thanks!!

          They use keycards. We had to get new ones a million times because we kept putting them by our phones/cameras.

            I don't think you will have to worry about sand in the food... and I think your guests will be fine, just don't plan on candles that aren't LED as part of your centerpieces or anything light that might blow away.   While leaving our ceremony we saw a reception on the beach across from the chapel, and it looked lovely.  I was even a little envious of how nice it looked.  So I wouldn't worry.

             

            Also, we gave our guests ID badge holders that zip on those rubber spiral bracelet key chains.  They worked perfectly!  People could throw a couple bucks for tips in them and their room key.  And since it's waterproof they can even wear it in the pool if they wanted.  Those ID holders and the Insulated cups were the biggest and most used gifts.  Having the cups were awesome for drinking in the pool and on the beach.

             

            My best advice for you is "don't worry"... you can do less and it will still be amazing.  Hope this helps!

              How many guests are you expecting? How many have confirmed?

                You'll be fine, we took photos on the edge of the saltwater pool which is practically in the ocean and not windy at all.  Wedding at gazebo 55, not windy there either.  Don't worry, you'll be fine.  I would recommend wearing your hair up though, that will help you look "not windblown" if there is wind.  Plus it'll be HOT so you won't want hair getting flat/frizzy with all that heat and humidity.

                  Where did you get the zip bracelets? That sounds like a perfect idea! Thank you all so much for calming my fears. We are at 90 already confirmed. 5 months away, it's getting very real!!

                    Wow... 90 people.. it was like pulling teeth to get the dozen that came to mine to confirm.   I ordered the badge holders and bracelets from amazon.   But since you'd be buying a larger amount you might find better luck with ordering from somewhere else in bulk, perhaps

                      Thanks jnitschke! We'll just have to plan me standing on whatever side doesn't blow my hair and dress the wrong way :) Gorgeous dress!
