    they used to do the cake on the beach if you wanted, but had to many issues with it. Probably bugs like the girl complained about. Now you can not get your cake served on the beach. Ours was served with dinner. It was inside so no worries about bugs. They brought it out right before we ate it. actually, it might have been sitting in the area outside the resturants where there is a bar. it's inside, but they may have left it there. I didn't see it, but our photographer took a picture of it. it's a picture I posted on this thread when we were talking about cakes. Does it sound like that is where she had the bug issue?

      Okay, so our wedding is just over 7 months away. I can't believe it's getting so close! I'll be engaged a year on Christmas Eve. Time has flown by. Planning is going good. Looks like we are having a private reception at the Pure Chill Out Bar due to the number of guests we are going to have. If you have any suggestions or recommendations or can just let me know how your reception went if you had a private one at the PCOB please let me know. What did you have for the dinner? Did you have a DJ?

      What did you give as wedding favors?

        see the pier in the background? You can also see how long the aisle of sand is that you walk in on.
        Awww... Morgan! That is so cute your mom was able to be included in the ceremony! My mom keeps telling me she wants to be a part of it too. I just may have to include her. I think having her walk me from our room to the site would be perfect! :)

          Welcome to this forum sobelove!!!

          From what I'm gathering, it looks like if you have 20+ guests you will have to have a seperate reception. I really didn't want to go this route since we are having an AHR when we get back. $50/per person seems really high at an AI resort. I don't know, I wish there was a way around it!

            my mom walked me all the way, because my dad is in a wheelchair. I've seen people have both parents walk them in when their parents are not divorced. Mine are. My step dad stood in the back of the tent until my mom sat down, because he didn't want to sit infront of my dad. This wasn't something we planned. I wondered why he was standing & my mom explained it later.

            So something that could have worked, if my dad could have walked me down the aisle, would have been to have my mom walk me from my room & hand me off to my dad. Then my stap dad could have escorted my mom to her seat after we had passed by.

            You'd have to think about the transitions & how it will look.

              Wow... I'm in the same situation. My mom has multiple sclerosis so she walks with a walker. My parents are divorced and at first I thought about having my dad and stepdad take part in walking me down the aisle but then I realized since I'm my dad's only daughter, he should be the one to walk me down the aisle.

              Hmmm... you've got me thinking now! :)

                  Wow... small world! To tell you the truth, that is mainly why we picked the CAT. Because of the wood walkway down by the beach. She will be able to use her walker down there and still be able to participate in other activities. Since she can't be in the sun for very long I will try and reserve her a cabana everyday! Plus, I will call the airlines a week before we leave to have a wheelchair waiting for her when she gets off the plane.

                  I can't wait to hear how your wedding goes! When do you head down there?

                    The airports took very good care of my dad. He also got to bypass the lines for customs since he was escorted by a airport staff member pushing the wheelchair. We requested a handicap room, too.

                      Great info Morgan!

                      Yes, I did request a handicap room for her too! :)
