Included in the wedding package is your marriage license, which will be signed during the ceremony and valid. You do not need to get re-married in the US when you get back. I am pretty sure Coyaba will FedEx 2 copies of your license to you once it is ready.
Okay ladies, sorry for taking so long to post. I was lazy and had to look up how to do it
So, I hope this works & here they are!
The lawn is where the ceremony takes place (unless you've requested to do it on the beach). The view looking out over the water is amazing, no?? Also included one of the pool area, beach and of one of the buildings. The grounds are just amazing...you will all love it! I can't wait to go back (for more reasons than one!).

All - What did you decide to do about bouquets? & if you have BM's, did you get them bouquets and how much? Still not sure what to do about flowers!

Kristin your pictures are great! I think they call the East Lawn the Wedding Lawn. The only other lawn is actually Joanne and Kevin's backyard (they live next door) and they use that to set up the tent if you have to rent one.

I just got back from getting married at Coyaba on the 8th. Oh, ladies are you in for a TREAT! I will write a full blown review later today or tomorrow, but words cannot describe how wonderful the entire experience was... the staff, the food, the attention to detail, the doting on the bride and groom... unbelievable. We had 61 guests and they all said that it was the best wedding the had ever been to (and this was with Hurricane Paloma weather too boot! (scattered rain showers, very high tide, the wedding lawn was soaked!)... thankfully it didn't rain during the ceremony or reception!
We also did a few things and they were well worth the splurges...
1) pepper lights, paper lanters, luminaries at the rehershal dinner (Ask Joanne)
2) coconut bar (for the experience alone!)
3) Bonfire with smores (HUGE success!... though we ran out of chocolate very quickly)
4) Reggae band... yes, they are very expensive but they sound amazing and really make it a Jamaican experience. No one could stop talking about them
5) Going with the tent rental and using the east lawn for the reception. I swear ladies, if you have enough or close to enough people this is worth the cost. It is like a movie set... the have hanging candles in the trees, tiki torches (and more luminaries... which I brought down the bags for) the tent is secluded, and the way its lit-up at night just takes you to another place... looking back, it was sooo amazing.
I will try to load up my photos asap... and give an even more indepth review of Coyaba, but until then KNOW it is going to be a very special occasion.
OH and one last thing, if you haven't, your group MUST and I mean MUST go on the All Inclusive plan... I realize its expensive, but breakfast at the hotel starts at 14 dollars (and thats contentinal breakfast). Lunch is 15-28 per person, and dinner is 28-38 per person. This isn't even including drinks (which they have an amazing array of top shelf liquors available). And, again the food is spectacular.
Ok, more soon, but again, get excited ladies, you're in for the most amazing weekend for you and your guests!
