    How far in advance did everyone start to finalize the details? I know it has to be complete (and paid for) by 30 days.

      I really started making some key decisions about 3-4 months out, so I think now is the time. I did not feel I was locked into anything because we never had to pay for anything until the 30 day prior mark. I might have reserved the wedding location a little earlier maybe 5 months out now that I think of it.

        Ladies, whether you got married by a judge or a minister at EDR, did you tip them? How much?

          we had the judge that EDR provided-- and you know- I think my dad might have tipped her-- but I honestly didn't think about it- at all. So she might not have gotten a tip from us...

          We tipped throughout the week, just bc we both bartended our way through undergrad, so we have a thing with tipping, plus the DH was feeling pretty good all week so he was kinda just throwing out money- LOL.. and then for our private events- we tipped pretty heavily (i think for dinner @ Fuentes we tipped $80, we tipped the cocktail waiters at our cocktail party $35, and the reception people @ Tucanes, $50)....

            My daughter used the minister that EDR provided, and by the way, she did a terrific job. I highly recommend her! Anyway, we did not tip her beforehand in the flurry of activity and afterwards she was gone so quickly we didn't even get to thank her.

              Hi ladies.
              I recently confirmed my wedding at EDR for April 24, 2009. I'm working with Monica to secure my ceremony location. She sent me pics of Gaz 55, Gaz Fuentes and the white gaz. Based on the pics I'm really leaning towards Gaz. 55. I'm having a hard time figuring out where on the grounds it is located? Does anyone have any feedback on these different gazebos? We are planning to have around 35-40 guests.
              Thanks!

                Here are some new pics of Gazebo 55. It is at the far south end of the resort.

                  You can see the Presidential Gazebo on Post #555.

                      Thanks! And good choice. I am very glad that's the one I chose. On mine, we added the exotic gazebo, colored runner, and petals. I think it was worth it. We didn't go for the dressed chairs.
