Gorgeous pictures!!! Looks like everyone had a great time!!

 

How many people did you have?

How did you know how much time you had for the ceremony music?

I am dying right now trying to figure it out. I also have 6 bridesmaids and just can't figure out how to get the timing down.!! HELP!!

Thanks! Everyone did enjoy the entire trip. It was definitely worth every little bit of planning I did.

How did you know how much time you had for the ceremony music? I didn't really...I just picked "Ariosa" by Bach for my girls and that was def. long enough for all 6 of my bridesmaids. Then I walked down to "storybook love" from the Princess Bride soundtrack. Claudia took care of all the timing. I think that someone timed it on here somewhere and it was something like 1 min and 20 seconds to walk. I wouldn't worry to much about the timing...one full song should be plenty of time.

What a great review, I have been waiting for you!! I get re-excited everytime I read a review and I CAN'T WAIT! Quick one that I don't think any one asked: Did Claudia charge you to set up your specific decorations on the tables (the ones they didn't provide) and if so, how much? How about a charge for handing out the welcome bags? Thanks again, you pictures are absolutely amazing and you looked gorgeous.

Hi!! Thanks alot and I am glad that my review helps you! No Claudia did not charge me for setting up my decorations, even though she said in her emails that we would be charged. Yes, there was a charge for the delivery of the OOT bags. They charge $4 per bag, but our TA negotiated with one of the managers, so we paid $2 per bag. I dont think that Claudia can reduce that price because its actually the bellboys tip for dropping off the bags (or so we were told).

 

Good luck with everything and HAVE FUN!!! cheer2.gif

That's great she didn't charge you for setting up your decorations and it sounds reasonable to tip the bellperson's for handing out the OOT bags, thanks! And another one, you said that most of your guests got upgraded because of your TA's maneuvering---my TA told me that the hotel will upgrade randomly when they overbook the least expensive rooms-- do you know otherwise-- was your TA able to negotiate upgrades for your guests? Were you and your HUSBAND updgraded and did your TA make that happen? Thanks again!smile03.gif

Yes, I've heard that the hotel will upgrade if they overbook the lower level rooms. All I know is that every guest that booked through my TA was upgraded to dolphin or ocean view and those few that booked on their own were in regular deluxe rooms (which are still really nice). That leads me to belive that the request from my TA had something to do with it. Of course, they wouldn't upgrade them if they didn't have the rooms...but I think the upgrades might have gone to my guests over someone random because of my TA. But...honestly what do I know about what goes on behind that desk :). My hubby and I were not upgraded to a more expensive room (we booked for a jr. jacuzzi suite and that's what we stayed in), but we did have an ocean/gazebo view. I dont know if all the suites have that view or not...so I'm not sure if that would be considered an "upgrade". Your TA might be able to help you with that question.
