Our dilemma right now is that we aren't having a private reception (we only have 5 guests). But we do want a first dance and a father-daughter dance. EDR said they would let us do that at the gazebo directly after the ceremony but we're afraid the Ipod thing might be a little tacky. Rhonda, you seem pretty classy to me so what did you think about the Ipod on the beach thing? was it nice? Jodi, I don't think the Ipod is tacky at all, but, I understand your concern

Spa- I was booked at the Casita Spa for my nail, hair, and makeup appointments on the wedding day. I had Erika and she did a great job! I was a little nervous
  3. These are all really cute ideas! Here's what we did: We've been together for a total of 10 years (not including our 3 year break) and we needed exactly 10 table #'s so it worked perfect! So, we labeled each table number with the year that we've been together and then put an interesting fact about us during that year. For example, starting with 1997- the year we met... 2000- the year we moved to California together....all the way to 2009- the year we got married! Everyone loved it and made it so personal!
  4. We stayed at Matachica Resort on Ambergris Caye for our honeymoon. We absolutely loved it! It is a very small and private resort. I can tell you more if you're interested. Are you looking to get married there?

Did you and your guests think it was worth it? Congrats! That's very exciting! I have one pic of the cocktail hour that I can email you if you send me your email address. I definitely think the cocktail hour was worth it even though my husband and I barely got to enjoy it
  6. I dont think so. My florist brought flowers from the US and they got confiscated at the airport. He ended up buying them downtown at a local florist.
  7. One of our guests, who is a florist, brought flowers from home and they got confiscated at the airport So, at the last minute, he ended up going to downtown playa to get flowers once he arrived. They weren't exactly what I wanted but it was ok. I think he just found a local florist.
  8. I don't check in on this forum too much anymore, but, I liked reading about what other people are up to after their weddings. As for me, I'm definitely happier NOT planning a wedding. Although I had fun while doing it, I guess I didn't realize how stressed I was until it's been over...I feel so much more relaxed and my sleep is amazing! Now, I'm obsessed with finding a home to buy and hopefully starting a family soon!
  9. Hi, I got married there in May. I had the same concern as you. But, I didn't think it was a big deal when I got there. I got married at Gazebo 55 and there were no visible sandbags. I didn't go in the ocean because the waves were too big anyway, but, several of our guests were swimming and jumping off the sandbags. We enjoyed the pools there a lot more, but, you could definitely swim in the water.
  10. I have 3 pairs left over if you would like to buy mine. PM if you're interested.
  11. I agree! This is a great thread! I have so many memories, but, these are my top: 1.) Sharing a moment with my Dad right we walked down the aisle...he started telling me how he remembers when he sent me off on the bus to kindergarten...I just started to lose it right then. 2.) Hearing my song, "I'm yours" start to play just before walking down the aisle and saying to myself..this is it! 3.) Seeing my husbands face on our wedding day for the first time as I walked down the aisle. 4.) Seeing my mother in law right after she fell into the pool at the reception! 5.)Our first dance

Also, I'm trying to decide whether or not to do the casita suite... did you think it was worth it? I just can't decide. Thanks!! Allison Hi Allison, You're right- I chose Gazebo 55. I liked it because it was

They are called carousel roses. I ordered them from the resort. My friend who is a florist advised me to get these since I also wanted the white/pink combo look. Hope that helps!
  14. My professional pictures and slideshow came in this week! My photographer was Citlalli Rico from Claudia Rodriguez Photography. She is so sweet to work with and I think she did an amazing job! We got almost 500 pictures in total, but, here are a few of my favorites:
  15. We stayed in the Casita area. The room is definitely bigger than the junior suites and you have extra perks. All the rooms are really nice at EDR so you can't go wrong, but, it is nice to splurge if it's your wedding. The only thing is that you are separated from most of the other rooms (which could be good or bad). Our room was in section 25 which was the closest to the rest of the resort and perfect for meeting up with everyone. I'm so happy we chose the casita area, I only wish I had more time to utilize it. In terms of cost, from what I remember, it was the same price (or similar)
