    We chose the gazebo because my fiance felt that it could be more decorated than the beach.

      We chose the gazebo because my opinion it was the most private. When we went on our site visit there was a wedding and they had people blocking it off so no one with their bathing suits could walk through. They also grew these big bushes around it so no one could look in from the beach. Most people are hanging out by the pool and the restaurants and we noticed there was not much activity where the gazebo was. You do have on lookers from their balconies but our not facing them so non of your guests or you will really notice them. Also I am a heels girl so since this is a stone rock way I could rock them :).

        LOL I thought the same thing...and yes, Victoria Secret has a ton of cute ones...although I don't know where I'm gonna get the boobs to hold it up lol

        I wish I could tell my bridesmaids to do the same, but I guess that would be too bridezilla? hehe (i just dont like the look of bikini top tan lines with a formal stapless dress)

        I would have liked the beach one, but as a matter of personal preference (and based on Jesmcam's review), I decided I would have it at Gazebo because I preferred that side of the beach to Pelicano's side

          Yeah, it's just such a toss up...beach would be better setting, but want to rock the heels and maybe can establish a little more privacy in the gazebo.

          Does anyone know how many guests the gazebo can seat?

                My problem is the exact OPPOSITE! I have too much to hold it up! Makes it hard to find a top that fits correctly. I didn't even have to tell my bridesmaids they were the one who made me think of it.

                  ohhh I'm sorry lol no that is outside. Yes the inside is much smaller.The wedding we saw has the bride and groom in the gazebo and all the chairs outside of it. But looking at pictures I would say you can probably get 15-20 on the inside on the gazebo. Not 100 percent sure though.

                    LOL Jescman, yeah, I figured it would probably seat 20, 10 chairs on each side. K, cool, thanks! I think I will go with the gazebo.

                      BTW, a little late for this, but wanted to let you all know that I also had to move my wedding from late Feb 2011 to November due to pricing. My guests will be saving over $1,000 per couple by us having to switch to November. It seems like all us November brides are pretty much in the same boat! It's made for a very profitable November for the Royal!
