    I also had a very good experience with Floral Arts. Although many rate them as being very expensive...they are actually cheaper than some others with respect to many items. BTW..Fathoms is just lovely.
  2. Have to say...RK Bridal by FAR had THE best and modern selection of bridal dresses of anywhere I went to for plus sizes in reasonable price ranges...David's Bridal had a very poor selection.

    Atlantis Accommodations

    I looked into it but had my welcome reception at the timeshare Club Land Or' which was a short walk around the Atlantis marina...I was however quoted prices from $24-27 per person to go from the Atlantis to the Poop Deck at Sandyport RT..the transportation costs can be steep!!
  4. See post # 75 on page 8...I could not edit the original post. Â Thanks again guys for the lovely comments...yes..Oskana did my make-up.

    Ohh...how exciting....all I can say is...just relax....you've probably done all that you can do at this point. Just have your coordinator check on any and all spa appointments and such when you get there...let them handle the rest...and enjoy!! Please let us know how it goes!!

    Oh goodness..I had to laugh when I saw that $3,500 price..I kept saying to myself that they are getting away with murder...$3,500 gets you white chairs, water bottles and towels. At least at the Ocean Club/Cloisters...they give you champagne too for the same price...and the Clositers is a STUNNING location. The only thing I can say is that since it includes the wedding coordinator...it is well worth it in the end. Â As for the size of Fathoms...that picture does not begin to do justoce to the size of the place. There is a lot of space to the left of that picture and a longer hallway to the right and on the side. They already have a buffett station basically set up in there which you can kind of see in this picture and it rather huge...so...no worries about that. We waited in there while transitioning from the ceremony to the reception.....

    Â Your wedding coordinator did right by you..two perfect locations for what you want. Â

    It's Official- I am an Atlantis Bride!!

    Â Hi, Â I got married on the beach at West Beach and had my reception outdoors at the Royal Overlook. Unless you are staying at the Cove as well as your guests, West Beach is the only beach option...at least on paper. The Cove beach is prettier and more secluded but it is not usually an option if you are not staying at the Cove. IMHO...the Royal Overlook is the prettiest of all of the outdoor locations. For inside locations...Fathoms is the best. It has an aquarium for one side of the wall...the only issue...it is HUGE...so...if you have a really small group...it may look a little odd but I was told that they could close off a part of it with the decor. I knew I wanted an outdoors reception so I did not choose Fathoms. It is centrally located as is the Royal Overlook and the bathrooms are right there. You can get a copy of a pdf that has pictures of the locations from your Atlantis salesperson. Â In order to get a group rate you must guarantee 10 rooms in your contract for three nights each as has been mentioned. Try to get an attrition clause that allows for 10% attrition....then you will only be repsonsible for 9 rooms if you cancel the other room in time. They will then block that many rooms for you at the group rates. I blocked 20 rooms and was responsible to pay for at least 18 based upon my contract. Thankfully...we surpassed that number of rooms. Â BTW...I think that the packages are for those whom need less than 10 rooms....not sure that you can add or subtract...but just make sure that you get that in writing!!

    Atlantis Accommodations

    Â Hi, Â I have stayed at the Atlantis Harborside timeshare at least three times...it's great if you can get in. You can rent from the Atlantis which will cost you much more than if you rent from a timeshare owner. Try www.tug2.net and go to the rental section or go to another timeshare rental site. Now..as for it being a value...not really....you should check out the prices. Depending upon the season, you can get the Atlantis at pretty good prices and/or the Comfort Suites which has full privileges at the Atlantis. The only benefit to the timeshare is that they do not hit you up with the RIDICULOUS surcharges and taxes that you get hit with for staying at a hotel on Paradise Island. Â Good luck too you!!
  13. Awwww...congrats!!! You will love it...I have a rather extensive thread on my Atlantis experience if you care to look. Good luck...it sounds so romantic!!

    Â I'm surprised that an Atlantis salesperson would recommend anyone other than someone at the Madera spa...that is a little odd. In any event, maybe you can get the DJ to come to the ceremony and load up two songs and save some money. What I did was to hire a steel pan drummer on my own..but he was horrible. As for the wedding coordinators...I hope that everything works out for you...before I had Alphanique I had Kimly. I was switched from her because she was on medical leave..if she is back and/or still working there and you can't get Alphanique...perhaps you could ask for her. I met her at my site visit and I also thought that she was an excellent coordinator. Â The only advice I can give is that while I definitely made out just fine with many of the vendors I found..I also got a stinker in the bunch...just do your research.
