So if we can't have it at the restaurant. What are our options besides the beach, terrace and that center outdoor location?

 

If there are two weddings the same day and both have a private reception that only leaves a choice of 1 out of 2 for the second bride. That doesn't seem fair at all.

That is my point that I have with Fabio, and he said that the choice goes to the person that booked first. I have a HUGE problem with that since I was not told in advance that there was another wedding that day. I would have been willing to do it the day before or after or even a week later....I am just annoyed right now and want to get things set in stone, so that I can send out update letters to my guest.

There is another wedding on my same day and we both started at 5:00, so I asked to change mine and the only choice I had was 6:00....I really wanted a cocktail recpetion and I am talking to Fabio about this. I should be allowed to have my private event until 12 since they book two weddings at the same exact time.

I am also concerned about more than one wedding per day. Honestly I don't feel the resort is large enough the handle more than one wedding at a time. . .Good point about the bridal suite. Who wants to share getting ready with another wedding party?! If anyone has seen it or any pictures, I would love details. We were not given a tour of the spa when we were there.

...If anyone has any insight on these questions-it is greatly appreciated. I'm sorry if I sound negative, I just get annoyed with how they do things. But pictures of every wedding I have seen have been beautiful!
I fluctuate on being concerned about more than one wedding per day. The resort is not entirely small but it's a U shape so there seemed to be few private areas. EDR is more spread out so their locations are really different. BUT Fabio told me that I would have nothing to worry about - I would probably never see the other wedding hmmm. We'll have to see people's reviews as they get married there. So I'm being objective. They know to pull weddings off well and I'm sure they will with this resort.

I read in Weddingchick's review though that depending on hotel capacity at the time of the wedding, they may hold receptions at certain restaurants.
I was told that they are not closing restaurants for private events (makes sense b/c then the restaurants are not available to other resort non-wedding guests). Though - I'm sure that if all conditions are in their favor to close a restaurant - they might but I don't think they'll ever put it in writing or guarantee it.

I don't recall it being windy either, but you you will probably be safer with a hurricane vase vs a votive. Just because it is outside.
Hopefully the wedding pics keep pouring in!

I think this is my biggest frustration and concern right now. And who knows if you pick your selection first, if you'll really truly get it. Gosh, I have no faith!!!
I'm pretty sure the resort is small enough that you will come across the other wedding at least once!

I'm ok with it, it would have been nice just to be informed up front.

Also, how many of you are staying at the resort for your HM, and how many are going to a different resort?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
