    I am Aug. 6 and still don't have an officiant yet. Isuyeny made it sound like a week or two before we would be contacted about our officiant. At that time we would need to have our vows, readings etc. I will let you know as I find out more :)

      I contacted Pastor Rick this week and he responded quickly. He e-mailed two dif ceremonies to pick from...one is traditional other is contemporary. Both are very nice. Isyuney said Pastor Rick is fine to do the ceremony but the judge will come later and pick up our signatures. So to my understanding it's a separate fee for Pastor Rick, which is $300. I assume the judge then later comes and makes it legal?!?! Sound about right?

          Diva, I've been checking myself & haven't seen it yet. I'm DYING to hear all about her experience with Excellence. FI found out today that a co-worker is honeymooning @ Excellence in October. I can't wait to hear his review of the place either!

              Do they do more than one wedding per night? I thought I read somewhere that they did but it seems like most of the weddings are held at 4 on the beach. How does this work? Also I am worried about the heat during the reception. I really like the idea of doing it at the cascade pool but does it stay really warm at night?

                I was told when I was planning that they only do one wedding per day. You can move the time of the ceremony if you want to. I think ours was at 5 because you can't start your recpetion at the cascade pool until 7 and I didn't want that much time in between. For our weddding it was SUPER hot for the ceremony and the reception (I think it was the hottest day of the trip). We used the cascade pool which is beautiful and I would do it again there but because it is surrounded by buildings and away from the water there wasn't really a breeze.

                  Thanks! Ana is my wedding planner but she hasn't been emailing me back lately. I have a few questions about the ceremony music...I know a lot of people go with the sax player but 350 seems kind of expensive for 1/2 an hour. What are the other options?

                    I was told that the sound system is included for the ceremony so we are bringing a cd with our own music. I believe if you want the sound system for the reception it is extra.

                      I just went back to our pricing we paid $200 for 1/2 hour sax. Are you sure it's $350? I would agree that it's not worth $350. That's outrageous.
