      My wedding is on a Friday too and I am lucky because we are the only wedding on that day so far... we choose 3 pm for the ceremony. We arrive the saturday before for two weeks and family arrives on wednesday before for one week. We then get a few alone days before to set things up , and a few days after to...relax!

        Bonjour Elizabeth. I see that you choose the gazebo for your reception. Did you like it? Was it windy? How much did you have to pay for the reception outside? Were you able to connect your ipod/music to their speakers? Where did you go after? I am leaning towards the gazebo or the beach for the reception but I don t know about the music, the cost and the alcool service. Thanks!

            To answer your question a/b the capacity of the gazebo....we'll have 59 guests with 12 standing up for the actual ceremony so about 47 sitting. I just heard back from Jacy that will be close, but we'll all fit. I hope that helps to answer your question a bit!!


            If anyone has questions or need me to find out info for them while I'm there next week, just let me know!!!!
            Thank you!!!!

                Hello. We LOVED the gazebo, for both our ceremony and dinner/reception. Yes, it was windy but not unmanageable. I think if it were not for the wind, we would have roasted to death! We actually, noticed it much more during the ceremony. We hardly noticed it during dinner/reception. We did not pay to use their speakers. We had just planned on using our own small speakers. HOWEVER; they connected us to their speakers w/o us asking and with no charge to us.
                After our ceremony (and pictures), we went to the bar near the pool and hung out with our guests for a while. We then returned to the gazebo for the dinner/reception. During that time, the waiters brought our guests anything they wanted to drink. Most of our guests had wine. The only think we paid for was the cost per person for the meal ($18,$25,or $45 was the choice). We chose the $18.00 one, which was soup, salad, LARGE T-bone steak, mashed potatoes and veggies. Our wedding cake was served as dessert (we had a ton left which we took back to our suite and shared later again with our guests). I can truly say that it was perfect!
                The total cost for us was the per person cost for the meals and the added charge per person for the champagne and cake for the 7 people that we were over the 10 people included in the complimentary package. Oh, plus the 15% service charge on the total. It really was more than worth what we paid.
                I can't think of anything that we thought was missing from the whole day.
                I hope I answered all your questions. If I can help with anything else, please let me know.

                  Thank you so much marrying him again! You answered all my questions, maybe one more, when everyone was done eating, did you stay a little in the gazebo to chat and dance? Were they still serving you drinks? Where did you all go after the reception?

                  A question for everyone. I also got the flower choices by mail from Jacy, do we have to choose before we get there or we can wait.

                  2 months to go, November is going to be a long one!

                  Thank you so much , the help here is incredible!

                    Yes, we stayed in the gazebo for a while after dinner. We had made a playlist of our favorite songs.We had that playing continually through dinner and the reception. Some danced, some sat around and chatted. It was very nice and relaxed. We were not rushed at all to leave. The waiters continued offering drinks the entire time we were there.
                    After the reception, we went back to our room. We had a mastersuite so we had a huge living room with a small kitchen with a bar plus 2 balconies. So we hung out there for the remainder of the late evening. The concierge contacted us and offered anything we wanted to be brought to our suite, drinks or food. Everyone was pretty full at that point, though. Most just had drinks and a few had another piece of our wedding cake.
                    The staff truly is amazing at this resort and went WAAAAY above what we ever expected. You will not be disappointed.
                    As far as the flowers, I did not choose until I got there and met with Jacy. She had a book of pictures of bouquets. I picked one that was similar to what I wanted but explained what I had pictured in my mind, with what colors I wanted them to be. It was exactly what I had wanted. They were gorgeous.... I LOVED them!( There is a pic of them in the link from one of my previous posts.) My only regret is that I left them behind when we came home. I was told that they could not be brought back through customs into the USA. That however, is not true. I spoke with the customs agent at the airport, when we came home. He said it is perfectly permissable to bring them back. They cannot grow and do not have seeds. He said for future info, if anyone were to give a problem about it, to ask for a supervisor. They are permitted!
                    If you have any other questions, let me know. Please be reassured that there is no need to stress or worry. We made most of the decisions after we arrived there and met with Jacy. We waited 'til then to decide on food, flowers, final location. She is wonderful and makes everything happen just the way you want!! It will be perfect!

                      Sandra sent me example flower choices via email but then I told her that none of them were what I really wanted. I told her what colors I wanted and what type of flowers I wanted. They accomodated my requests and they came out beautiful!
