    Just wondering if anyone had to share their day with another bride at the same resort?
    If so did it bother you? How did it go?

      Our resort does 3 weddings a day. And they are booked solid the week we arrive. So yes, this is going to be interesting in terms of who gets what restaurant for their reception, what ceremony sites will be given to whom....

      Now I have a headache...but in God we trust.

        On my day I think they had 4 brides. I knew about the one after mine as we chatted up the whole time at the resort. Oh that was soo fun going back and forth tthe whole time on what we had planned. I think they had a 1pm, mine at 3pm (which turned into almost 4 because of the hurrican delay) and then the 4pm which turned into a 5pm Sunset wedding. The 5pm girl actually canceled for the following day because of the weather. The 1pm girl I saw her at the spa in the morning and actually never saw her again till the following day. Since dealing with hurricane, we had to move all ideas to different sections of the resort that morning, I didn't have a problem with it even though I horribly wanted the beach and the tiki hut for my reception. Looking back on it.. I am completely happy with what we chose in the end. I had an outdoor reception on a private elevated deck by the pools. I know Alyssa (4pm wedding) chose to have her reception at the steakhouse indoors. Only time I ran back into Alyssa was after our receptions were done by the main evening bar.

        I loved my day and felt totally like a princess the entire time even knowing so many other brides and b2b were around. You forget about everyone else.. or at least I did.. all sense of time, who else was around .. you name it. It's a day that is all about you and you will feel it all happen so quick too..

          On my wedding day, there were 3 weddings (12pm, 2pm, and 4pm - mine). Each bride had their reception dinner in a different a la carte restaurant. I only ran into one of the other brides at the bar where both groups ended up for dancing/drinking after about 9pm. I have no clue what the 3rd one did. It helps that we had a HUGE resort. We all did our own thing and it was fine.

            To my knowlege there are a max of 3 weddings per day. I booked certain things in advance, DJ, restaurant, location and will pray things go fine.
