    I am getting nervous about making these big decisions not hearing/seeing these people....curious how everyone else came to their decisions...

      What wedding package did everyone choose?  I am undecided (on a lot of things), but am not sure if it makes sense to do the "free" pkg, and then add all the private reception pieces we want, or just go for a biggie (gold or whatever its called) and if that will be cheaper in the long run?

      Wondering what other brides are going with......

        I switched to the sweet free package because I compared the packages, and the other packages really offered nothing that the free package offered that I even cared about, except for a bride's bouquet, which certainly isn't going to cost $2500 or more.  What I did is print out a list of all the packages and compared them side by side.  Then I looked at what was offered in the the more expensive package(s) that wasn't offered in the free package, and then figured out if it was worth the extra money.  I figured I was WAY better off starting at zero and building from there than paying a few thousand dollars for basically nothing (and my uncle is a wedding photog, so I don't need that).  The things that are available on the Gold package that are not available on the free package are:  spa hairstyle for bride and haircut for groom, blood test, photographer, logo beach bag, romantic sunset cruise for bride and groom.  If you want all of those things and they are worth $3,500 for you, then go for it.  I think the big thing is the photographer.  Figure out what you want to do for photography and I think you'll have your answer.

         

        You can kind of keep looking at it as you are planning and change your package at anytime if it seems like there is one that might fit you better.  Good luck!

         

        And keep checking out this site.....it will definitely help you figure out what you want/need and what your options are at the resort.  Everybody on here is at various stages of planning, so no need to feel intimidated!!

          Fair question! For me, I had done months of research on this site before ever choosing the resort and I had read a lot of good reviews about Doremixx at other properties. Then, when I read a horrible review about the DJ provided by Azul Sensatori, I was scared into requesting a quote from Doremixx. Even with the $500 fee, I'm saving something like $200 so it was worth it to me. The communication I've received has been professional, thorough and quick which makes me more comfortable, even though in a perfect world, I would have sat down with and interviewed multiple vendors before choosing.

           

          And don't be overwhelmed by this site if you can help it...I was when I started and I'm an event planner (almost 7 years at my job)! What has worked for me (and I'm still technically in the beginning stages) is doing not more than 2 or 3 things at a time. First it was about the location/date/time/photographer. Once I had gotten those elements confirmed, we moved onto website/save the dates/colors/theme...and we're almost done with that stage. Next I'll focus on scheduling showers/bachelorette/dress shopping...it's kept everything from becoming overwhelming and in all honesty, it's kept things FUN. Since this process is taking a year of my life and will only last a weekend, I better have FUN with it.

           

          Sorry that I've rambled on, blame the wine I had tonight! Mine and my FI's families had dinner together tonight which is always a good time! Everyone is in a food coma and I'm on this site, ha! :)

            I got the Free Sweet Wedding package as well then paid in addition for 2 private events. Money wise it just made more sense for what I wanted. i would say the Free Sweet Package has the basicas of what you need.

              Question for the recent brides-- how did you transport your wedding dress? And did you steam it onsite? Starting to worry about how well my dress will hold up during the travel...

                My dress is very thin and lace so I am going to put it in the suitcase and steam it when I get there.

                    So I am finally back to the real world! Our wedding was stunning-could not have asked for anything better. All of our guests had an amazing time, and the wedding coordinators on site are super. Don't stress too much, they will make everything perfect! I will be trying to get my review and planning journal done in the next week.

                    Hi,

                     

                    Where in the reception location did you have the tall glass vases and hanging corsages transferred to?  Thats a great idea!

                     

                    Thanks!

                     Free wedding pkg worked best for us.  I created a spreadsheet and compared what was offered in each one compared to what I would still have to add.  In the end - the free wedding suited us much better and saved us money.

                      Did you walk down the ramp in your heels too?  If so, did you need to hold onto the railing?
