      Does anyone know the dementions of the gazebo? I am trying to figure out how much tule and stuff I need to buy.

      Totally got so much stuff done this weekend. Found my flower girl dress, and GM and FI attire. Ordered my invites, and bought half the stuff for my OOT bags. Also got my hair piece too and I totally in love with it that I want to wear it to work tomorrow.

      Also as of this mornin we have 24 people booked. Both my FI and I thought we were just going to have this small wedding with just our parents there, and it is so turning into much more. It just makes so much more exciting.

I think that I will either do it in the World Cafe (I think that is what it is called, the buffet one) or in one of the ballrooms, then have the bonfire on the beach. I had asked Landy once before aboout the ballroom for the welcome dinner and she didn't say it was the private event fee, just $12 pp (I think). I have changed my mind so many times about everything that now I think it probably is just best to make all other decision when we get there!

        I still need to get my tulle this weekend! I haven't found the color I'm looking for anywhere (fuschia) and I'm starting to get nervous about it.
        I'm surprised you were (maybe) quoted 12$ per person for the ballroom. As per the guide (and I think when other people asked) any group meal would be 20$ per person for the standard meal (or 55$ for silver or 65$ for gold). I thought this included any restaurant or ballroom.

        Did you check out idearibbon for your tulle? that is where I got mine and I remember they had fushia. I only bought a small roll, for bows, and the color was beautiful

        50$ for judge's transportation and 150$ for the blood test if doing the legal ceremony, that's it! (oops, those are the 2008 prices, check the information on page 1 for 2009 prices, they are just a bit higher, I think 170$ + tax for the blood test). These have to be paid in cash

        I'm totally guessing here, but I would say like 8' high, and maybe 8'x8' square or 8'x10' or 10'x10'

        To do a set-up like mine (check my pics in my signature, check my review for more info about my set-up) it required approx 2 bolts of tulle 40 yards each (I brought the turquoise one, they supplied the white but they only had the amount they used for my set-up, so even if you have all white and a set-up like mine you should bring one bolt to make sure they have enough). Hope that gives you an idea of how much to bring to do whatever it is you want to do.

          I just got back from my wedding on 8/18. The first thing I have to say that I didn’t hear at all in this thread is that the place is spectacular!!!! I was so impressed with the grounds, etc. They were immaculate and beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. As for the smell that some of you mentioned, some of my guests did experience it in their rooms. One was so bad that she had to move. My brother said his room smelt of cigarette smoke that didn’t go away either so he moved as well.

          My wedding was fabulous. We were 43 people in total. We had the ceremony on the beach at 3PM, the cocktail hour at 4:30 PM, outside at the top of the stairs and the reception at the Seaside Grill at 6:30 PM. We booked back in March so they honored the “old” wedding guide.

          The ceremony was beautiful; we had a beautiful day/week. Honestly, you can’t go wrong when you are in a beautiful place. All of the weddings that I saw when I was there was so beautiful, so don’t stress over extra decorations. Even if you don’t do anything, it will be gorgeous


          The cocktail hour was nothing to speak of in terms of food, but we warned our guests to eat a late lunch to hold them over until dinner. Having it on top of the stairs allowed for great pictures there.

          For the reception we had a buffet and it was fabulous. The menu for the buffet has now changed, so I am not sure what the new one will be like. The cake was delicious. We did the 3 milks with pineapple. It was so great. There was plenty of food. I also had a kids menu for some of the younger kids in my group.

          Based on the recommendation of one of the brides in this thread, we used this DJ - Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

              Theresa, glad to hear you had a wonderful time! Couple of questions, if you don't mind.
              What time did your reception end? Did they make you shut everything down at 10:30pm?
              What section was the bad smell coming from?
              Did you or anyone in your party get a free upgrade?

              There is a thread in the general info page (at the top) with instructions on how to post pictures. Would love to see them.

              Congrats and welcome back!!!

                Theresa welcome back, CONGRATULATIONS, and thanks for the information. My understanding was that you had to have 50+ people to have a buffet option...did you pay extra since you had under 50? And can I ask how much you paid per head for the buffet?

                  Brooke, I am also interested in hot pink tulle and didn't really find that on idearibbon where SunBride got hers... can you let us know where you end up getting yours?

                    I ended up finding my tulle at Hobby Lobby. They actually had fuschia and it looks exactly like the color I was looking for. They had the big bolts and the smaller ones for chair bows. I think I may need a little more for the gazebo part though.
