          Honestly the wedding was better than I could have ever imagined. To answer a couple of your questions
          1)There was no problem using fake flower petals – they didn’t really blow away in the wind and were easily cleaned up by rolling up the aisle runner. ( the hotel took care of it)
          2)We brought an outside photographer. Michael tried to get us to pay him, but I remained strong and said I had no contract with him. I also asked him not to take pictures. The hotel does provide him with a list of all weddings , their locations and the number of guests so there is no hiding from him. Be strong and do not pay him.
          3)We did get a dvd made. They did a really good job on it. I gave them 2 songs to put on and they filled it with other nice songs. A note of caution – they put a microphone on the groom. Be careful what you say because it may end up on the dvd. The minister tells everyone to come up and congratulate you after the wedding and that part of the dvd has no background sound so that you can hear all the congratulations. After the wedding the dvd guy takes you and makes you do a bunch of different poses while he tapes. Try your best not to look at the camera. I kept looking back into the camera and it made it look even more posed than it was.
          4)We had the wedding at the beach gazebo however the other gazebo is really nice. I was just set on having it on the beach. Also the other gazebo is quite far from the suite wing of the hotel as is the plantation restaurant.
          5)They gave me a three tier wedding cake and I did not pay extra. It was okay, if cake is really important to you upgrade it, but it was perfectly fine. I had asked for them not put fruit on the cake as I had seen in some of the pictures instead they put some flowers on it. I would bring your own cake decorations and give them to her – i am sure you can find something nice at a craft store even if it is just seashells
          6)Oh and another thing I would have done is brought a nice pen for signing the wedding documents – the pen they have is just plain
          7)The wedding document lists you as a spinster if you have never been married. I guess this is common, but it made me laugh lots while signing it.
          On a side note I bought the just married flip flops to wear the next day and they gave me blisters and didn’t even leave the marks in the sand.
          9)I asked about the room upgrade when we checked in – which was on a Friday and they didn’t have anything till the Monday. I got Chandlyn to check too, I thought it would put extra pressure on them.
          Let me know if you guys have any other questions while it is fresh in my head.
