    Hi all,

     

    I'm wondering if anyone can send me info on the wedding package/resort details as I'm planning a wedding for next year.  Anything would be greatly appreciated!  (I couldn't view the attachments from SDSteph)

    Thanks!

      For whoever has gotten married here - how big is the Gazebo?  Reason I ask is so far I have 7 groomsmen and the bride has 5 bridesmaids (thinking of adding another) and we're just concerned whether we will all fit while standing up there.  What do you guys think?

       

      Also, does the audience sit inside the Gazebo or outside? 

       

      Thanks!

        There are two sections so the gazebo one for the guests and one for the wedding party and bride and groom

         

        Judging from the pics in the links above the most I saw was 6 BMs and 5 GMs in tha gazebo.  But it looks as if it woked out fine. I am not sure how many guests can fit in the gazebo though.

        Yes, the gazebo is two layers.  How many guests will you have?  That will determine if you'll all fit.

        The bridesmaids/groomsmen shouldn't be a problem, as they'll stand in the upper gazebo along with you and your bride.

        However, just as an FYI, standing INSIDE of the gazebo you won't get the beautiful blue sea behind you in your  photos.  Del Sol did an amazing post on this forum to help brides and grooms understand the technical side of photographing in gazebos.

        It's for a different resort, however the same logic applies.

          Will have about 20 guests that will be seated (not including the bridesmaids/groomsmen who are standing).

            You should be fine.  We had 6 guys and 3 girls plus us and there was lots of room.  Plus still room on the lower layer for guests and we had over 20 :)

              Hi Lauren! I am getting married April 8, 2011 so we will definately overlap! Patricia sent me some of the pics the resort photographer did and I didnt think they were good enough so I am going with "playaweddings".  Also I think we are going to go with the Beach reception as well but are also concerned about cost as we have about 70guests.  I'd love to hear more about your planning!
