Also, does anyone know the max number of people that can sit inside the gazebo comfortably?

Thanks for the help! I tried to email the WC in michigan but you know how that goes...
Hi Speedy,

How many people are you having? I do have pics but I can't load them right now since I am at work sad.gif I will uplaod them tomorrow morning.

I think the terrace is a really nice spot, where are you doing your ceremony?

If you go with the garden I would go with the garden by the gazebo because it is more private. The other one is right in the middle of the resort and all the guests have to walk by to get to the restaurants and the pool and beach.

Depending on how many guests you have I think the terrace is a great choice. Plus you can wear heels because in the garden you def have to do flats or wedge (you will sink right into the ground)

Wow, I have swamped this past week, so havent been able to to check in.
LadyDi, we are on the beach as well, with the cocktail hour on the beach. We are having our reception on the gazebo terrace so we still have an ocean view, but easier to walk/ dance, etc.

Thanks for the advice! The pics would be great, I'll check back tomorrow. We are having around 35, at most 40. Would the terrace work for that size group?

Oh ya that would def work! that size is perfect. It is 7 to a table at most you can do 8 but after that I gets really tight. So you would have 6 tables. I think you will really like that spot. Everything is lit up and you could save some money and use the actualy gazebo as the dance floor! You will have the ocean view as well.

I just got the updated price list from my WC, and there is a $350 vendor fee listed on there. Just FYI. Maybe you can arrange something with your contract to exclude that fee, especially if u are ordering the luxury package or somethinghuh.gif

You can't exclude the vendor fees if you're bringing in someone else outside of the resort.

personally, i think i'll risk it or maybe just take a picture of the receipt with my phone so i'll always have it with me if i need it. i definitely want to have my rings with me for my wedding/honeymoon!
I just came back from The Royal 2 days ago and traveled with my ring. You don't have to do anything with customs regarding it.

Don't worry about getting mugged or your ring stolen. I just got back from site visit and never once did I feel unsafe. I actaully felt safer there then in Chicago, lol.

Well I asked Carole to confirm 12/2 was available on Tuesday, she said it was. I'm yet to hear back from her that she booked me for that day. I've sent 2 emails and left a phone message.

After all of this I just want to confirm that date so I can re book everyone! At this point I'm scared to re book until she says. I keep telling myself go ahead and re book everyone because she said it was available on Tuesday...and they do multiple weddings on the same day so I'm sure we're fine. But my maid of honor plans to come in the day before the wedding, and another bridesmaid plans to leave the day after the wedding...so I can't change the date again!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
