    Awwe! it looked really nice!! did you guys pay for ur guests at the beach bar restaurant or did they pay for themselves? and did they only serve lobster or were there other choices? Was the photographer from the resort? lol sorry about all the questions... :P

      we payed for the guests (figured they payed to come down there, the least we could do is pay for the supper!) it was a seafood dinner, but i had a guest who is allergic, and they made her something else. the photographer is contracted to the resort, his name is Adail he was AWESOME!!! totally recommend him!!! No prob, if you have any other questions, i'll fill you in!

        They let you have chairs on the beach?? That was my one drawback from this resort, everything else looked great! If/when you have a picture of the beach wedding set-up with chairs, could you please post it as I'd love to see!! I will probably be selecting this resort for my wedding in March 2010. I'm just waiting for the 2010 prices to come out before I decide for sure.

          yea absolutely... i basically told them that had i known they were un willing to put chairs on the beach.. i would have booked with another resort.. they replied back saying that if i wrote a letter stating that i would take responsibility for my guests should they get injured during the ceremony :)... soo naturally thats what i did... now chairs i will get on the beach :) only a month and a half away.. and i will definitely let u ladies know how it went

                We didn't have chairs on the beach and honestly, it was no big deal. The ceremony is so short and then you end up walking down the beach for photos right away anyways.

                  i guess for us the chairs were important because we wanted there to be a defined area where are ceremony was.. so that other people would know.. and we dont want to have everyone kinda floating around and having to try to see over someone else who is taller... and the beach is definitely where we wanted to have the ceremony, otherwise we could have gotten married in any garden in Canada lol!

                    I agree, Jax. I want chairs for the exact same reasons! I know people will still walk past because it is a public beach, but I think chairs make it look like a defined area, and might deter people from standing right beside in their bathing suits and watching.

                      Thats the thing, luckily if you stick to your guns on what you want... they will do it for you... their main issue was safety :S so they finally said as long as i take responsibility for my guests if they are injured on a chair on the beach, then they would set it up... but i think it also has to do with the fact that they dont want to lug the chairs all the way to the beach, but thats the least they can do since im bringing appx 30-40 people to their hotel! lol... anyway... the wedding is creeping up really fast so i will let u know how it goes! :)
