    Thanks Starlitk!!! Looks like you had an AMAZING wedding, even with the rain =) Those pictures are beautiful. =) I don't know if I will need any templates, but thanks for the offer! I will keep in touch if I need them. =)

      Thank you Katie & Max for the ruins info. The pricing info was really helpful. I am glad that it was fun for you even without the guided tour. I am hoping that most of my guests are self sufficient enough that I can just provide entrance and cab fare and that will be good enough.

        We'll have far more than 10, so I guess that option is out for a reception. Maybe FI and I can do a romantic dinner. Thanks for answering all my questions!!

          Starlitk thanks for posting the extra pics! The relaxed pool does seem pretty dark. I read your review and am sorry that everything didn't turn out exactly as you planned, but you were a gorgeous bride and you had a great photographer. I love the picture where you and your FI round the corner of the building and see each other - so sweet.

            Has anyone heard from Aurora lately? I sent her an email with some questions over a week ago and have not heard anything. Typically she responds to me within about 3 days. Also when I sent the email this time I got an automatic response routing me to a different/(new?) email address. Just wondering if maybe they have updated or converted contact info in the last couple of weeks and I missed it.

Did DT provide a discount for accomodations due to a site visit for potential wedding venue? I've read on websites that some resorts either give you a free night stay or at a discounted price.

              All suggestions and information from all would be greatly appreciated :)

              Hi Sheila - Aurora did say she could provide a discount for the site visit but would need to book through her in order to get it. We sort of booked our site visit in a rush so I couldn't wait for her to get back to me. Since you are planning earlier, I would definitely ask. If you are using a TA, they may also be able to help you arrange. Hope this helps.

                I hope these photos come out, I had to resize them 15 times in order to make them small enough to upload. I'm trying to research how to add photos....I'm going to need to know this for my planning thread. :)

                I highly recommend using photobucket for images, I posted instructions on page 1, right before the bride list.

                  Okay ladies, I have finally gotten around to updating page 1, most of the changes are on the bride list and a few minor changes to the guide (no bonfires anymore and added the menu for the mexican buffet)

                  For the detailed bride info, I am only going to be posting this for brides after their wedding when they post a review. That was the original purpose of this anways, was to help people find reviews and pictures that had the info they were looking for (i.e. review of reception at a particular location, review of photographers, photos of a particular photographer, etc). Sadly, probably only like 1 out of 20 brides post reviews, so it was a lot of work to do when most brides don't end up posting reviews.

                  On that note, we've only had 2 reviews in the past 4 months! That's so bad. Sorry to complain but there are so many brides on here who are getting a ton of help planning their wedding and I find it sad when people don't pay it forward by posting reviews to help others. We've had so many brides get married lately, I really hope we see the number of reviews increase.

                  And on that note, I am still wanting to get around to updating all the links to the old reviews (the links got broken when the forum was upgraded last summer. The reviews and photo threads are all still there, but the links are different. It's going to take many hours to update all those links. In the meantime, you can do a search to find them. I recommend doing an "advanced search" and then enter the person's username and maybe a keyword like "pictures" or "review").

                  So to be clear I will continue posting all usernames and wedding dates in the short bride list before your weddings, but for the detailed info it will only be the brides who post reviews (so after your wedding) So continue to post a message telling me your date so I can add you to the list (I can't just look at the profile info on the left because I won't recognize who's new and who's already on the list. I need the new people to just post a message "Hi, please add me to the list, my wedding date is X" or something like that. You can post in this thread and/or send me a PM.

                      Last time I emailed Aurora was on 3/10 asking her if I would have to get my photographer a half day or full day pass... she responded on 3/11 (half day pass for 7 hours)...

                      I am still a bit confused though, is Aurora the WC or the assistant?!?? I am reading different things, I don't know! =)
