Congratulations! I'm getting married next Friday at EPM
Of course make sure and say that Trisha Erwin referred you! You'll first want to make sure that you choose your date/time and choose the beach wedding or Gazebo. The wedding coordinator will put that time and date for you on "hold" but it really isn't confirmed until you book your trip. Then you'll correspond with him to get family & friends booked. Main thing is to get your trip booked so that you can get your wedding date & time confirmed. From my experience and reading the forum's, the wedding coordinator will then work with you in regards to cocktail hour/reception/dinner and all that fun stuff about a month before the wedding, I know that sounds like it's not enough time, but it will be, the WC will be able to make everything you want in a wedding possible! Of course between now and then, you can decide your flowers, centerpieces and stuff. EPM has options, but you can upgrade, you'll correspond with her the closer it gets so that you can make sure those flowers can be provided down there. Same with everything else! Best of luck & happy planning! Let me know if you have any more questions that I can help you with!!!
