21 days wow - you must be getting SO excited!!! Since mine's almost a year away, the other girls are ahead of me in the planning stage (and have already helped me so much, so thanks ASP ladies!) but having done a site visit in March, I got to see all the ceremony/reception spots. We are doing a welcome cocktail on the Cove terrace, having our ceremony in the Cove gazebo, and our reception on Mundaca rooftop. We're thinking of brunch the morning after the wedding and haven't decided yet on the rehearsal dinner. Honestly, it's such a great resort that no matter WHERE you choose to have everything on site, I'm sure you'll love.
PS. There's a thread on here about 'What I would & wouldn't do again' and MANY brides said they wished they hadn't upgraded their cake, that it ended up being MORE than enough so I think you're making a good call

Do you know if they will set those up for you at the ceremony and/or reception??? I'm just worried we will have to do it ourselves and when in the world will we find the time!!??
I also haven't decided where to have the ceremony...anyone have a suggestion for me?
We are doing the complimentary package and adding on the horse and carriage ride and the harpist. I hope it's worth the money. We are keeping the complimentary wedding cake and just having the servers cut the cake in 49 pieces instead of 35. lol I figure we are having the Italian buffet for our dinner and that comes with a bunch of different desserts so why pay to upgrade the cake right? Thoughts on that??
What private events is everyone having? We are doing a welcome dinner the night before the wedding, a breakfast the morning of and the cocktail hour and reception. I've been emailing Cristing (WC) alot lately and she hasn't been responding very quickly. Does anyone know if they have a rehearsal for the ceremony?
