    Very nice choice Sherry. I'm like you in that I knew I would be stressing about the unknown. The Marriot is quite close to the Seawatch anyhow, so I'm sure it will be just gorgeous!

We tried to book our ceremony at the Seawatch, because we'd already booked our reception there, but unfortunately, we'd waited too long, and it was all booked up already for the ceremony. Our wedding coordinator recommended a few other spots, including the Wailea Marriott, and we decided to go with it. The pictures they sent us look really pretty, and we will still have the water as our backdrop, so it seemed like a good compromise.

      We switched from the beach too. All along I really wanted a beach ceremony, but would not have been OK with a hoard of people around watching and being in the background of my wedding pics. Our ceremony will be in the gazebo, and we'll take pictures on the beach afterward and that was a good compromise for me.

        Don't listen to the naysayers.
        Have your wedding where you want it. Of course there will be wind, it's the beach, and ocean waves, too, but don't let it deter you... it comes with the territory!

        I think that is the whole point of going to the Caribbean or Hawaii to get married... to wed on the beach! So do it however you want! :)

        Don't let people bring you down. It's your day. Do it how you want!
