        to be more specific:

        "Wedding Day Stuff" is kinda of my review/show of wedding related attire, then stuff I made for the wedding ceremony/reception

        "Al Cielo Wedding & Vendor Review" is my review of my actual wedding ceremony and reception at Al Cielo, and the vendors I used for that in addition to Al Cielo

        "Group Outing..." is a review of the outing we treated our guests to on the Monday following our Sunday wedding.

        great review!!! i think AI's are really the way to go for group events...everyone has sooo much fun. my family did not do AI's before as they like to eat at nice restaurants etc. but they thought AI was so convenient and fun that we are now on our 3rd annual trip together back to the same resort....

          Well, in my experience (per my review), the AI is good for informal group events, but it was quite negative for the organized group event of the rehearsal dinner (the only way to have everyone together, and a lot of $$$ for little value), which made me so so happy I did not have my actual wedding at an AI. However, I had a group of 90 some people, and most people on this forum are dealing with more like 30 people, so they probably would have a different experience. But yes, after the wedding, everyone was talking about an "anniversary trip" :). We'd definitely consider a smaller group trip to an AI b/c it makes things much easier when you aren't worrying about the bill at every meal, especially when some folks eat or drink a lot and others don't.

            What an awesome review! I had checked out travel advisor to look at previous feedback and came across the fact that the resort is VERY spread out. For older guests I can forsee this being a problem to walk 30min here and there to get to different areas esp in the heat. After reading I may still consider using the resort as our party is half the size you had. Looking forward to reading the details of your actual wedding day! Thanks for all the detailed info! :)
