    thanks lyndsay! I'm guess I will need to buy two sets one for the ceremony and one for the reception since they probably won't have time to take the ones off from the ceremony and take them to the reception hall? also, can you have your own music played during the ceremony at the gazebo?

      Hi drbride 83

      Thank you for your info about starfish.

       

      For anyone who wants to know I spoke to my wc yesterday and she said that they have water fountains that go off during the ceremony if you get married in the gazebo.

      just an fyi : )

       

      Thanks! Good to know!

           They do have a number of colours to choose from, but it is $3 a chair.  I used them, because I just had no extra room to be able to pack that many in my suitcase.  I did bring with me table runners in a matching colour instead of using a solid coloured table cloth.

             You can bring your own music for the ceremony and they will play it from your IPod - my WC told me an IPod can be hooked up to their system.  I was going to use the Carribean Trio for the ceremony, but changed my mind when I noticed that they hooked up a stereo system.  I can't remember what the WC played for the BM walking down the beach, but she played Somewhere over the rainbow for me - which I loved, and then after the ceremony, she played some slow love songs - I didn't even know she was going to do that - I loved it.

             

            We got married on the beach and it was awesome.  I noticed that a lot of people don't choose that option.  The main reason for me for a DW was to get married on the beach.  It was not overly windy and enough of a breeze that my dress which was mainly chiffon was blowing in the wind....which was exactly the reason I picked the dress that I did.  It was perfect!!!

              I didn't do it in any special way, but I had already asked my bridesmaids because we were orignally planning on having a wedding at home. When we changed our minds and decided on a destination wedding, I talked to them again before we officially made the decision to see if they were still okay with being bridesmaids given that we are now doing a destination wedding, since it's a lot of money for everyone. It's probably a good idea to be upfront about the costs if you haven't done so already, and tell them you understand if money is an issue but you would love it if they could be a part of your day. I'm sure which ever way you decide to ask them they will be happy and excited!

                  Anyone know what time the disco opens/closes? We are going there after our reception is over.

                     I think the disco opens shortly after the evening show or around the same time the show starts and I am not certain, but for some reason I thought it closed at 2am...I could be completely wrong.

                      I was thinking of having the ceremony on the beach but after looking at some pictures of previous weddings I didn't like the floral arch that they used. It looked to simple and somewhat flimsy? Do they still use the same arch?
