just a note... if your are booking a swim up room and for some reason dont like it?? Remember, the swim up room is the highest category.. so there is nothing saying your can't DOWNGRADE to an ocean view.
for us, we were unhappy with our swimup cause we were not there for a party, as our group was very small only 6 of us... and our room was right beside a bar so there was always people around. We asked for a DOWNGRADE and got a fantastic second floor ocean view room (much more private than a main floor suite and was probably twice the size as the swim up).
So if you are not happy, ask for a downgrade, we did and were very happy we did...

Ok I have some more questions...
1. What did you end up using for your centerpieces? Did you like them?
2. What about your dress.. did you carry it on with you? Or have to fold and get it crumbled in the overhead things?
3. Did you have to repay for the chair bows and chairs for the reception or can they just be brought from the ceremony site and negogiate that when I get threre? They are trying to charge me twice for the same damn thing...
4. Did you have a cake? If so did you like how it turned out? And if you don't mind.. how much did you spend on it?
5. Again... I am trying to figure out if I am spending way to much on my wedding... what was your guys final costs for your weddings?? If you could let me know that would be awesome!!

we only spent $1489CND (all prices include the exhange we paid)
pics - 920
flowers - 192 (2 boutineers, bouquet and med centerpiece)
blood tests - 320
sand ceremony - 57
The day of the wedding they had put chair covers and bows on the chairs at the wedding site (no charge) it was a really great touch, but was not something we wanted to pay for.
if we include the upgraded room cost (for two weeks) it added another $1400cnd (much cheaper than the $2500 package if you don't get the room upgrade) so just under $3000.
I had mentioned before they screwed up our flowers (medium centerpiece - we asked them to be delievered to the room and they never were) and in turn gave us a beach supper in the beach gazeboo. All I asked was for my $50 (or $75 - can't remember) back.. and they don't seem to be able to give any $$ back, so they will give you ammenties instead.. since the $50 would have been much cheaper than the gazeboo supper and made up beach bed..

I thought of another question too.. when you guys signed your marriage certificate... did you use your maiden name or your new name to sign it

p.s. I just sold my wedding dress last night. bought it for $550 (killer sale - regular 1300 I love ebay!) and sold it for $650
very exciting about the dress... I bet your smiling just thinking about it!!
marraige certifiacte - you sign your madian name as you have not formally changed it anywhere.. once your married you just have the option now to take his name, combine or whatever...

The main thing is DO NOT STRESS ABOUT THE DETAILS UNTIL YOU GET DOWN THERE!!! You can arrange everything much cheaper with the most incredible wedding coordinators!!! They are fantastic, wonderful, and go above and beyond what you pay for. I can't believe it is all over, but i feel like i had one of those weddings that only exist in movies!
