I packed my in a suit bag and carried in onboard the plane. Mind you my dress did not require any steaming! Mostly because it was lace. The resort offers steaming for dresses (I wish I really remembered how much but I think about $25-30). Suit was $15? to be pressed! ****IMPORTANT: The laundry is closed on SUNDAYS. So if your wedding is on Monday (like ours) make sure to send it out early). They made an exception for DH suit to be pressed, but it did not get back to our room til about 1pm Monday.

Thanks for any help in advance!
I posted my brochure a while ago. Hopefully this link works. I used Word to create mine.
Did you walk down the ramp in your heels too? If so, did you need to hold onto the railing?

I did walk down the ramp. Did not hold onto the railing. I was fine, but my sister who was walking me down the aisle started to slip a little. Likely a good thing, since I was near tears, and that moment made me laugh! I managed to hold onto before she slid completely. I would maybe ask if they could sweep the sand off...but it really wasn't to bad. Mind you I think my heels were only about 3 1/2".

* Is there poolside food/beverage service?
* What pool had the most space to hang out at/best swim up bar? I'm just trying to envision where everyone can meet...
* Room service...can you order alcohol to your room?
* One more alcohol related question (sorry!!) - was there Grey Goose? I still have NOT received an actual answer. Claudia said there was when we were there on our site but Angie was never able to confirm. I'll stop bragging about it if it's not available.
-walked by the Teen club, and yes there was a DJ. I know some of our guests would go there late at night to party.
-poolside service: for drinks there is usually someone around taking orders. Food, I have only seen on the premium side, and only a snack about noon-ish.
-you can order a bottle of wine, but not regular drinks. Although I ordered Clamato many times! (I love beer with a bit of Clamato in it....it's an east coast Canada thing!)
-did not see Grey Goose. But then again I was happy with Stoli vodka, so didn't ask. But there is a 'back bar'...ie. the high end stuff they don't show, but if you ask for it, it appears! I wouldn't brag about it....easier for guests to be surprised, than disappointed.

I am trying to put that last little details on my welcome letter so your info was perfect. I am getting calls about the pants for men. Can they wear jeans to dinner?
Men can wear jeans! No problems. My DH did than almost every second day. Just make sure they are not trashy, ripped up jeans. But most guests wore khakis or jeans, with golf shirts, hawaiian shirts, etc.

I bought our laterns from Asian Ideas. We bough 40...which was way too many! I would suggest about 15 for Zavas Plaza. The resort does not offer them as far as I know, although they do offer Christmas lights.
We carried them down with us, and took most of them home. Only 30...they misplaced the rest somehow. Not a big deal, but I know another girl wanted to buy them from me...so hopefully that still enough for her.
