      Your dress is amazing!! And I love your bouquet - it's exactly what I want too, did you order it through the resort?

        Thanks for all your lovely comments!!

        We used the casitas gazebo. The one right down the far end - as far as you can go (to the left if your facing the sea). We had originally booked a different one but we were able to change it when we got there. Definately the best gazebo in my opinion! The waves almost went over our toes during the ceremony and it was far enough away from the pathway to be quite private. Obviously there were people on the beach watching but I didnt mind as we got to show off our outfits a bit more! My husband designed his own outfit too and I didn't actually see it until the day! Was a lovely surprise!

        The decor was just white fabric on the gazebo with tropical hanging flowers each side. We had a white aisle with pink and white rose petals. We wanted to keep it quite simple and I think it really worked. Only problem we had was that it was quite windy so some of the fabric kept blowing about (you can see in the pictures). It may be worth asking they to secure the bottom of the fabric to the gazebo, I would if I had of known. Also they couldnlt put the rose petals down until just before I walked down the aisle as they would have blown away. They were soaked in water though so they did quite well to stay for the whole ceremony.

        My bouquet was just pink stargazers I think. I ordered it through the wedding co-ordinator once we got there. Its in the catalogue that they show you anyway. It actually had little white daisies in it too which I thought made it so pretty!

              I had heard that they had big black sand bags on the beach. It it true?

                Yeah there were big sandbags in the sea to protect the beach from big waves. Personally it didnt bother me and I didnt think it looked ugly. It may bother some people though. I haven't even noticed them in the pictures!! I'd rather have sandbags than no beach.
                You may be able to see them in some of my pics, if not i'll find one that does show them if you like?

                  I think it bothered some people- to me, it looked like rocks-- our guests were suprised when I told them it was sand bags instead of rocks. I think some brides, it bothered more than myself. We went snorkeling at EDR and it made the snorkeling amazing- bc it protected us and the fish from the surf..

                  Here are some pictures of the beach/sandbags...

                      I got my necklace from a department store in England (Debenhams - not sure if you have one over in the US?)

                      You may be able to find one similar on the internet. I didnt want anything to big, but not too small either and this necklace was perfect.

                      Good luck in your search.....
