I was also wondering about the minister, cuz I was thinking of hiring an external one but I'd hate to pay the resort's vendor fee, lol, so that's good to know you had a good experience.
Did you get a wedding package or did you just pay for each item separately? Did you do speeches/toast during your reception dinner at Villa Marina? was it not too noisy (since it's semi-private)? I'm sure I'll think of more questions so I hope you don't mind
Oh and I would to see your pics if you don't mind sharing, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and congratulations again!
Oh and do you or anyone else know how much the day pass is again for guests not staying at the resort?

BCBride- we did get a wedding pkg as we just booked the jr. suites for us and everyone else, and we only had 14 ppl (total, incl. children), so we didn't qualify for the 'free' wedding. We got the caribbean pkg for $1100. And added on the flower arrangements for the arch and table, the petals down the aisle, the private dinner at Villa Marina, the photog (basic pkg+ extra for all pics taken put on CD), my hair do...and it came to just under $2500.
We did speeches at the Villa Marina. We did them near the end of the night (after dinner, before cake), and we didn't find it too noisy at all. Although at first I was a little nervous because there were lots of people in the restaurant. If I were to do it again, I would probably do speeches right when we got there (at 6:30pm), because at that point we were the only people in the restaurant, and it didn't start filling up until about an hour later.
Sorry, I don't know how much the day pass is.

I'm so glad we missed the whole swine flu thing, it erupted several days after we got back. I feel awful for all the other DW brides that are having to cancel or reschedule their weddings because of it now. I can't even imagine!
I'm sending you the pics!

I live over on the IL side. I have a travel agent who has been everywhere, including this resort which is a big help!
I just graduated and we are building a house, so I feel like I have a lot of wedding planning to catch up on!
I loved your pictures of the resort. Would you mind forwarding me your other pictures as wel? I would like to get some color ideas and see how your pictures turned out with their photographer. Thanks!! email@example.com
