All of the arrangements for accomodations have been arranged with Sunset's state side coordinator so our guest can make their reservations etc...I don't have a bridal party except for my son and my future step daughter, so that;'s pretty simple...I have my dress which was a steal because I purchased a bridesmaid's dress from Wtoo that I am going to use...Our wedding package included photography and we are doing an iPod for music so not much to do there...Now I am just pulling together the loose ends, deciding on decor (which the facility has been very helpful with), we picked a menu with the help of the WC at Sunset, deciding on favors and OOT bags...things have been going pretty smooth and with all of the comments, help and ideas from this site I know completing my final tasks won't be that difficult...I will keep you posted as things progress...I am about 4 months out and getting pretty excited...let me know if you have any questions be glad to help...Good Luck with everything... Oh that's ok, with the late response. I know your quite busy with life itself, as well as your BIG DAY!!! Thanks so much for sharing your info! I sound like you are just about all set!!! I can't wait for you to possibly share pictures! I'm still in the very beginning stages of planning, but I will certainly ask more questions as I go along!

Boy have I got a lot to do, the only thing is I don't have a bridal party as far as bridemaids, groomsmen. My son will be my ring bearer and my daughter will be my flower girl. So that takes a little stress away for me LOL! I will definitely use your link as a reference!

I attached a link to my review, I hope it can help you. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/sunset-beach-resort-and-spa-all-inclusive/reviews/6446 I'm glad you had a wonderful experience! It's puts me at ease with my decision with picking the Sunset Resort!! My FI and I both wanted something affortable for ourselves as well as our guest, but very nice as far as quality overall!! I will definitely check your link out! Thanks so much for the info!

So did you have any complaints with the resort, quality, food, entertainment, wedding ceremoy, etc.? How many guest did you have?

Ive saved sooo much from buying some extras that previous bdw brides have had extras and sold. EBay, amazon, etsy have been my saving grace. Dont foeget about oriental trading. They have everything. What aee your colors again? Ill keep an eye out on things. What have you brought from the websites? Thanks so much for offering to keep an eye out for my colors which are a vibrant turqoiuse, yellow, white and a splash of silver or rhinestone glitzy look.

My FI and I took a few flicks about 1 week or 2 ago, and I found this website to upload a pic and you fill in your info... bride's, groom's name, your hotel info, and the date, etc. and the theme of the STD is like a Movie Premiere Poster but you would print it as a 4 X 6 inch pic, so basically it's a DIY, which of course is saving $$$. So I'm really in the beggining stages!!

As far as pictures, there is a thread for "Sunset Beach Resort Brides" (I think that is the thread but if you put that in the search bar it should come up) and some brides posted pictures of their wedding there or they put links to websites of their wedding. I too am a little skeptical about the quality and it has received mixed reviews but the wedding pictures I saw looked great and I also found someone's wedding on You tube and it was gorgeous, so I decided to go with it. So even if it is not five star, I know my wedding will be lovely and with family, friends, and a new husband what else matters. Good Luck and feel free to write back with questions. The staff has been nothing but wonderful. Another plus is that you get a state side coordinator as well as a coordinator on the island so that has been very helpful. Let me know if I can help anymore. Oh okay, GREAT!! I will go search for the pics, thanks for the useful advice!!! Wow your 4 months away, almost time!! Hopefully you can share your experience with me. Where are you with your planning if you don't mind me asking? How many guests are you expecting?
