    It is open bar and the waiters are quick about getting the guest whatever drink they want. When we met with Anabel the day before I asked her to have drinks that matched our colors and some other drinks onhand. When the guest got to the cocktail area there were several different drinks offered, and some cute hotpink and orange drinks....they were even bringing over shots to us!! We loved it...no exta cost just ask when you have the meeting!

I am really sorry to hear that not everyone had the same experience as we did. I am wondering if the size of the wedding increases the possibility of issues? We were only 13 (including a 1 year old baby) and our 2 photographers (as a side note - I'm sad to see that there is a change in the 2010 guide RE:outside photographers, we LOVED them!)...
        I'll do my best to write my review ASAP!!!

        Hey Chantal ... great to hear from you ... we met very briefly as you were about to the leave the spa after you got your hair done (you looked absolutely gorgeous BTW!) ... I'm glad to hear everything went well ... I was so upset that it started raining just as you were about to leave the spa ... I was wondering how they were going to get you out of there! LOL ... can't wait to see your review and your pics *huGs* Suzanne

              There are family photos, wedding/reception, boudoir, and trash the dress ... can't wait to see all of the pics ... but these were unexpected today and I'm just having so much fun looking at them and remembering all of the fun we had.

              I honestly can't thank Misti enough for being there to capture so much of our amazing trip!
              Suzanne, thank you SO much for posting your wedding review and your pics from Misti. Based on your review alone, I've been in contact with her to book her for my November wedding (I'm SO far behind in planning/organizing). Your pics are so great...the black/white of all the kids holding hands brought tears to my eyes - gorgeous!!

                Hi Suzanne!!! I wish we had had more time to chat :-) We luckily had all brought umbrellas as we were expecting it to rain! I still can't believe the sun came out 50 minutes before our beach wedding, we were so lucky. You looked beautiful too, I saw you on your wedding day while you were getting photos done!!!

                I don't know how to post a review: do I just start a new thread?

                  I put the actual review thread here: Wedding Reviews - Best Destination Wedding Forum and then came back here and linked to it ... because I know I lived in this folder while planning and such ... and I didn't know my way around the forum so I didn't read as many reviews as I could've ... can't wait to read your review and see your pics *huGs* Suzanne

                    Maggie ~ You're welcome! I just LOVE the "pay-it-forward" atmosphere on this forum ... and I am committed to sticking around to help for many years to come.

                    Misti was one of the best decisions we made ... period.

                    From one of my thank you emails to her:

                    Quote:
                    Misti … I have so much I want to say to you … but I think I’ll wait and put it in the review … but “thank you” would never express what I’m feeling and what I truly want to say.

                    I will say that I’ve never worked with someone who was so professional yet fun … who seemed to be part of the family (despite our bickering and such) and who knew how to put me at ease despite my nervous energy and snappish behavior while I was there (BTW - I swore I wouldn’t let anything get to me while I was there – clearly that went out the window!) … who worked so well with children … who told us exactly what to do … who worked so hard in that blistering heat … who clearly knew what they were doing yet was open to our ideas (no matter how crazy) … I honestly can’t thank you enough … and I haven’t even seen the pictures yet! I KNOW they’ll be amazing and I can’t wait (but I also know they’re WORTH the wait!). Thank you again!
                    Let me know if you have any questions ... either here on by pm ... or by email

                    Also ... you say you're behind ... is there anything any of us can help you with? Please don't be shy about asking ... let us know! *huGs* Suzanne

                      Oh that is so sweet, thank you! I think it really is because I am pretty laid back about this whole wedding shindig, lol! It is my second marriage, and I had some reservations about having a big to-do - I would have loved for it to just be the two of us in front of a judge. But it is my FI's first marriage, and I want to do right by him. I think once I got over my insecurities of getting married a second time, I jumped on board the planning train! Now he's probably like, Oh God, let's go back to the judge idea, lol!

                      That being said, I am still pretty laid back, and I like the idea of the WC's at Dreams taking care of most of the details, and just showing up at the resort. I am starting to plan the OOT bags, get the photog (thank you!) and I at least have my dress, heehee! So far there are about 40 friends and family members coming, so I think it is a perfect sized affair.

                      We are taking my five year old daughter along as well, so I am happy to be going to a family friendly resort. Did any of your children use the Kids Club?
