      I am considering having my wedding in RPRM in July 11, and was wondering what is considered a good price for guests for 5 days? Also, did anyone get a group rate discount, if so how much cheaper were the rooms?

        Well I have offically ordered my BM dresses and I purchased my bridal shoes today! I am feeling a little better about the planning.

        We went suit shopping for FI yesterday and didn't have any luck at all! We had a hard time finding the color we were looking for and what we did find was outrageously expensive. I am going to be ordering his suit tonight from suitstudio.com, there is a thread about it on this site. Custom linen suits for $99! I've seen a few that girls from the site have purchased and they came out great!

        I am thinking I may add a floor length veil to my ceremony dress...I think it will dress it up more and add some drama. I may order that this morning too....As you can tell I am not feeling the working thing this Monday morning LoL!
        Loving married life! <3

          Hi Ladies!!
          There's lots of questions going on here, here's my thoughts...

          Katie - My best friend was our MC for the night and she announced us into the reception part. If you do not plan on having an MC the DJ will do it for you.

          I do not have pictures of all the locations just the gazebo but here are my thoughts
          I think all the locations are awesome, people are going to be watching no matter where you decide to have it. I would rank as follows
          1. Gazebo
          2. Beach
          3. Kiosk

          The Kiosk is very beautiful however I am not sure you would get the great blue water in the backround. Originally we really wanted to have a beach ceremony but by the recommendation of many people we went with the gazebo and I am so happy we made that decision. You can still change your mind when you get to the resort too so try not to stress to much about it.

          We were married at 1pm and it was hot out but not unbearable. I actually didn't even sweat at all so I was really happy about that. I would say that 3pm-4pm was the hottest time of the day so if you are all good with the heat go for it.

          Ladytrunck - 5pm will be a good time too you just have limited time to take pictures. Our photos only took about an hour so you could have them done before dark. Aren't you getting an outside photographer though?

          DreamingofSunshine - I have pictures of our groom and groomsmen wore at the wedding, take a look at my planning thread.

          Katrina305 - We used a TA and I didn't think she was helpful at all. She gave us no perks or anything. I found from people that booked that they got the best deal on travelocity, you just have to watch for the deals.

          Let me know if you have any other questions ladies...

            Thanks Lisa! We don't have anyone to use as an MC...I actually didn't think about that, but we could always ask one of our guests to do it! If not, I will definitely have the DJ do it then. Just making sure that was an option. What song did you have everyone walk out to!? That's my next thing to decide on!

            Let me know if any of you girls have suggestions on this!

                Sammysgirl- do you have a link or pic of your bridesmaid dress??

                I'm also going to order the custom suit from there too! Well that is if I can convince him to wear a suit. He has huge sholders and a smaller waist (well compared to his shoulders anyway) so trying to find a suit that fits is impossible!
