      Hello! I am considering getting married at this hotel in July 2013. Can anyone share any outside vendors that may have been used?

        @Shanon09 and QueenBennett.  Congrats to you guys!  I will also be getting married in April (on the 28th).  I was booked for February, but we recently had to push our date back.  I'm so excited to finally start planning.


        @TropicLover.  Congratulations on your wedding!  Your photos are gorgeous.  I think this question has already been asked but where exactly was your reception?  It appears to be under a covered area, and I didn't know if that was part of a restaurant or one of the terraces.  Thanks for all of your advice, seeing your pictures really helps with the planning!

          Thank you for getting back to me.  You ladies rock and are so full of knowledge!



          Sandy- sending you the cake choices.....


           Another question:  Who controls your ipod as you walk down?

            Now that my head won't shut up-- I am thinking I should not opt for a cake type dessert- if we are having wedding cake.


            Veteran OCT girls: Did you serve your wedding cake and dessert at the same time and had your guests choose or did they eat both?  That sounds silly- but I love dessert! :)



            Tropic Lover: Thinking of it now it probably would have been a good idea to provide cake boxes so our guests could bring it back to their room for a late night snack.  Great thinking!!!!

                @Archilly & Andecker, our reception was at the Creperie.  It took my wedding coordinator/travel agent a lot of negotiating back and forth with Ana and the Food & Beverage manager to get that spot.  I know another past bride had her's there, but they stayed outside by the pool.  I think a lot of it has to do with the restaurants schedules as everyday one of them closes.  Our wedding was on a Friday.


                @kleenotes, Our dinner was served around 7:30ish and we were served dessert after dinner and then straight after they put out petit fours (mini cakes and pastries).  With all of that we opted to serve wedding cake around 10:30pm just so people would have a breather before more food.  Honestly even at that point I had no room for food.  Actually I think I was caught up in all the excitement and could barely eat anything.


                For us the iPod was controlled by our DJ even though we only paid for 4 hours of his time at the reception.  We just handed it to Ana during the day of the wedding.

                    @SandyBorie and @TropicLover - Thank you both for the info about Villa Marina. It soundsl ike the lobby terrace is more private and allows music, so I think that' s where we will have our reception.  Really appreciate the info! You girls are awesome!!

                      Hello Everyone,

                      I don't know if I'm the only one having this problem BUT I'm having such a hard time trying to decide the color for our wedding... Any suggestions? I just feel really guilty to ask the bridesmaids to buy a dress in a color that they would never wear again in their life.... on the other hand when I look at wedding pictures, brighter colors seem to be give a great effect/contrast so I'm really confused on what I should do.

                      Help pleeeease!
