    The final word I got was pay for one night, that was from Jacy....

      I originally was having a local photographer and it did seem silly, but now have someone else traveling in so it works out okay. I think they do it just to deter people from bringing there own so that their photographer gets work.

      Patsah and Monica C - I also have blues/turqoise/aqua color scheme. Let me know what decor you are using and maybe we can share costs? So far I have a few vases and votives but they are mother of pearl not blues. I am looking to buy chair sashes and a table runner as well as draping fabric for the gazebo and lanterns(this will be white).

      Is anyone else planning to hang chinese lanterns in the gazebo? Are you doing LED or plug in?
      That's great AArons girl....I am in the MD/VA/DC area btw, not sure where you are in VA. I will try to contact those chair sash people....

      As far as laterns, there looked to be some in Lyales photos?? Square ones hanging....I assume you are talking about the round paper ones? I was also waiting to hear in Lyales review if the tulle in the gazebo was provided by the hotel. I am thinking it was....white is fine with me.

Jacy still hasn't answered my questions. They suck over there

        I am sure everything will turn out great! You can always do white chair sashes....when I called Jacy a while back, she said they have sashes and what not there.....

            They do have sashes, but the prices they charge to rent them are ridiculous... Its in the wedding guide, but I don't remember the exact price. I want to say $3-5 a piece. You can buy them for under $2 a piece, even less if its organza.

              RBB,

              Do you have to pay extra for having the dinner in the gazebo?

                Yes, I saw that. I was thinking of doing every other chair however. Unfortunately we are going to be moving several days before the wedding (my fiance is in the military), AND we don't know where yet! SOOOO...conveinence is a huge factor for me and luggage since we will have more stuff than usual probably b/n the move etc! Once we leave for the wedding, we will be flying back to the new place!

                  Jen - I don't know yet. I have to email Jacy this weekend and find out if it is an option. I don't know if there are other weddings on my day but even if there are, I am the last wedding, so I don't think it would be a problem to have it there and I really don't think they'd charge extra but who knows..., once I find out I will post to let you know.

                    Beautiful Bride - We are having our ceremony and dinner in the gazebo. She said this would be fine and did not include any extra cost. Now that you mention it though it does make me want to clarify:)

                      Thanks Ladies,

                      If you find out anything concrete let me know. I asked Jacy about having the reception by the adults only pool and she replied with yes and it would have a small dance floor but....she conveniently forgot to mention if there was an extra cost. It's so hard to communicate by email cuz she takes so long to respond and doesn't always answer questions fully, hence....more questions. I'm so glad I found this forum. It's great to be able to get answers within a day or 2 from others who are in the know. BTW, is anyone staying a second week somewhere else and if so, where and what made you decide on that resort? We are thinking about maybe an adults only for the second week for a little more romantic atmosphere and maybe just in case our friends want to stay on afterwards.

                      Thx, Jen
