SGOR Beach Brides?
Posted 27 November 2008 - 01:08 PM
My reservations are the following:
-The beach looks small, so are we going to be right out in the open with all the sights and sounds of the beach?
-Many of the pics I have seen on the forum feature a gazebo location; what are brides' reasons for not choosing the beach?
-As of yet, I haven't been able to find any pictures of ceremonies on the beach.
I would appreciate any input, and especially pics!

I think that your beach wedding should be fine with just you, hubby and witness. The beach area is fairly small, but there is another more secluded part (near the scuba diving area) that I think would work perfectly fine. (I don't think you HAVE to choose the beach area that's close to the boardwalk.)
They used that area to host private romantic dinners, etc. and it's near a pool (that I used for my welcome reception) that around 4pm should be pretty quiet.
I chose to marry at the gazebo overlooking the ocean because I wanted to be close to the water, but not on sand. Plus, I had 40 guests and I think it wouldn't have been as easy to host that many people for a ceremony on the beach.
I wish I had some pictures! I'm kicking myself for not taking any, but I did have a girlfriend who married on the beach a year before me and her wedding was beautiful. Just her, groom and about 6 guests at sunset.
Hope this is helpful!

I was thinking if we didn't really like the beach location, the pier looked nice too.
Oh one more question! Could you actually see the sun setting from the SGOR beach? Or just the colours? I wanted sunset, but they said 4:00 is the latest you can get married there.

One more thing to think about regarding the beach, depending on the time of day (and the shoes you're wearing) the sand might be hot

Seeing the vids is just making me more and more excited to go there!!
We are staying on the Riviera side (our TA highly recommended it as it's closer to most amenities) in the Bamboo Grove building. It's a Rivera Deluxe room (pretty close to the bottom of the rung lol, but I'm sure it'll be great) I have looked everywhere for a picture or vid of the room but no luck!!
