    So happy to hear everything went great for you IoawChik22! You should do a full out review! I'd love to hear more.

    So you obviously had a male minister which is different than me (had a lady, and did not have problems with her saying thank you too much!).

    Can't wait to see your pictures when I get home (work blocks all photo sites for me).

    Thats so funny about the reaction to the gazebo request. There has only been one or two other DT from BDW who've gotten married since me, but there are probably lots of lurkers who don't post here who saw it in my review, as well as people who saw it on trip advisor.

    That's too bad about your pictures, I hope the quality of the digital files is good so that you can get them reprinted.

    EDIT: Just got to see your photos, you have lots of great ones! Your gazebo looked beautiful too! And I see that you got the same palm/flower arrangements for the aisle that I has asked them to do- did you specially request that or is it their new "standard" way of doing it?

    Congratulations!

          Congrats! Thank you for sharing! Everyone's experience really helps, and it makes me feel good that things went well for you--and I adore your dress--especially the sleeves. Since you welcomed questions: I am considering reception on the beach as well (probably will have dreams of love package and I am pretty sure it is free then to have it on the beach)--but wondering about the music. So you bring an ipod and they have speakers, etc. you rent? Can you tell me the cost for that? Did it seem to work out dancing on sand, etc.? Can I ask why you decided on the beach? I am thinking about it b/c not only do I not want to pay $750 to rent out a restaurant to make it private, I am worried that because of other weddings that day the other spaces will be taken. And I am not counting on Sandra being able to confirm a space for me before I get there.

            Its actually 1 large speaker that they just move over from the actual wedding site. It worked just fine...we asked them to turn it up a little which they did! The reception on the beach was awesome...they had candles and tiki torches....it was kind of windy but still was amazing. Being in the beach was exactly what I wanted...our meal didn't start until probably right after 8:30pm and at that time there is no one else on the beach so it was very private besides the few people that were some distance away at the seaside grill...I didn't even notice them!! Dancing in the sand....ahhh, it still brings tears to my eyes...it was no problem what so ever, it was magical!!! The cost of the speaker was $150 and that was for however long we wanted it. My friend had the ipod and brought the cable to hook it up....it worked just great!!

              Regarding the reception... my understanding is that unless you have over 50 people (and can therefore have a buffet) and you pick either the silver or gold package, you are required to pick 1 plate for everyone. Meaning everyone gets either meat/fish/veggie, etc. This seems really strange to me--have never heard of that. I don't need many options, but we do have a handful of vegetarians in our group. Does anyone know about this? My hubby to be thinks it will be fine to work this out with Sandra upon arrival. I am worried.

                When I met with Sandra the day after we got there she had asked how I wanted the gazebo decorated and I said that I wanted it like the one she had done a few weeks prior and I had a picture with me but then she said you mean like this.....and she pulled up the exact picture that I had printed of yours and said..."you mean like this" so she must have it easily accessible! I saw a couple of other weddings and it looks like they had the same aisle decore also...so it could very well be that they do it like that now!!!

                  When you meet with Sandra after you get there she asks you if anyone needs a special menu...so at that time you can tell her! I wouldn't worry about it until you get there!!! We had our 3 year old son with us and he wanted chicken nuggets so thats what he got while the rest of ate the fancy stuff!!

                    Hi There Ladies,

                    Could those of you that used the resort photographer and videographer how long did it take to get your photos and video back? Do you get them before you leave or are they mailed out? We are having a reception when we get back and I would like to have a slide show at the reception. Thanks.
