    Lizzy and Gem, Tiara sent me a couple of pictures of the natural arch, but I seem to be a techno dummy and can't get them posted here. it's $175.00. Send me your email address and I will forward the pictures to you.

    I think they use the beach on the west side of the pier for weddings and have it closed off to the rest of the people at the resort. I stayed at this resort 9 years ago and at that time this beach didn't even exist. In that direction, there are no other resorts or access to the public. Very private.

    I had a hard time deciding between the beach and the gazebo for our ceremony. The gazebo is beautiful but we ended up picking the beach for the simple reason we wanted to get married on the beach. My biggest concern is that the sand will be too hot to wear barefeet. My bridesmaids are wearing short dresses and from pictures I have looked at... I don't really like the look of flip flops with the dresses. My other thought is if it is still sunny at 4:30 we will be squinting or wanting to wear sunglasses.

    Time is running out so I guess I will deal with these things when I get there.

    Best wishes to all the April Brides!! : )

      Hey, Maybride. My email address is ericandgabyswedding@yahoo.com. Thanks for the pics=) I agree with you...I really like the gazebo but really want to get married in the sand so thats why we are doing it on the beach. My bridesmaids are wearing short dresses, too, and our ceremony is at 4....didn't even think about the sand but we will just deal with that when we get there,too, lol:) Thats great about the beach being so private for the ceremony and stuff=) Thanks for the info =) Less than 2 months for you!! yey!!

        Hello ladies,
        This might be a really dumb question but here goes... for the ceremony, do we order chairs for the wedding party as well as the guests or just the guests?
        I am trying to to a price total and not sure how many chairs I will need.

        I am now down to days on my countdown... Soo excited!!

          I think the wedding party would stand during the ceremony.. no?

            I agree with Amy, your wedding party will be standing for your ceremony so I don't think you'll need chairs for that. But what are your plans after the ceremony? Are they using the same chairs? If so, then I guess you would need to take the wedding party into account.

            I'm SUPER, SUPER excited for you April brides!!
            Love is a wonderful thing!

              I'm getting nervous, anxious and excited all at once! I can't imagine how April brides feel right now!

              I haven't really done anything and feel overwhelmed too but I can't help but to think things will be taken care of when we get there. I also just got an email from the resort's 2nd wedding planner Yanna Guzman. She's been reassigned to handle our wedding. I sure hope things will just fall into place!

                Tiara told me that the price of the chairs includes the use of them for both the ceremony and reception; therefore I will be asking for as many chairs as there is guests (including the wedding party). This way there may be extra for the ceremony but there will be enough for the reception.

                  I feel the same way!, but i have not been able to get in touch with tiara in about a month and a half so im hoping i might be reassigned too. I have a month and 2 days to go!

                  Hjack are you having any issues getting in contact with Tiara??

                    Hey Gem,
                    My colours are white and natural - i.e. raffia, starfish decorations and white manzanita branches with orchids for centerpieces. I have 40 large starfish and am now thinking I should have bought more ... I will have one on the back of each chair, along with tulle.
                    I just love the idea of natural colours.

                      Thanks,
                      I will only need enough chairs for the guests at the ceremony then. We are having the reception at the SSG. I think I have everything planned now.

                      23 days until we leave. I'm so excited.
