    Its so funny but I was also pretty sure now that I was going to do it right on the beach w/ an arch... but after hearing your review and looking at your pics ... I think I'm changing back to the gazebo.

    What type of room did you have booked originally?
    We booked a Jr Suite HOPING (but not expecting) an upgrade to full suite. I REALLY thought I'd be going with the beach, but the gazebo was so much better than I expected! It was perfect, for us! :)

    I had planned to do centerpieces but the universe was against me so I scrapped it completely. I'm glad I did. It would've been just another thing to carry with me - I think it was FINE with no centerpieces.

    It was at 4pm. Weather - apart from VERY windy - was perfect. We didn't need fans.

    We did the Dunns River Party Boat on Sunday. It leaves at 10am, you need to be there by 9:45. We were back at the resort by 2.

    wow Heidi, that was incredibly detailed, sorry about the food situation but otherwise it sounds like a fantastic time.

      Heidi, I've been waiting for this review since I first "met" you almost a year ago! I am so so so happy for you and Reggie! Thank you for being so detailed. I'm obviously disappointed about the lack of vegetarian options (I'll be sure to pack my protein bars!). You really covered everything, but I'm sure I'll think of questions to hound you with before I leave. Congrats again!!!!

        Lizz, I kept thinking about you when I was disappointed with the veggie optoins! I was SO tired of eating vegetables when I left there!!! I filled out surveys and commented about the severe lack of vegetarian-friendly food...so maybe it'll be slightly improved for you?! Either way, at least you can prep for it! And maybe I made it sound so bad that you'll be pleasantly surprised?!

                    I must agree, great review Heidi! Very descriptive. I was anxious to read your review and I'm not even a ROR bride to be, lol. I am sure you have helped the future ROR brides out even more. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. Cant wait to see more of your pics! Congrats again :~)
