        I thought i was going to wait till i got down there to finalize the reception as Tiara keeps changing her responses and think it would be easier to go back and forth in person but I think i have finally figured things out.

            OMG - first of all your photog is AMAZING! She did a great job of eliminating the videographers negative impact on your pics. I too will second that when I saw the set up of the resort photog/video people I was not impressed --this is what really sealed the deal for HDC to do both for me.

            I'm wondering if now that they've brought in an additional wedding planner that maybe she's just there to take over from Tiara altogether!? I'm sure that you're not the frist bride to complain about Tiara's behaviour (in fact, I remember reading a VERY negative review about Tiara on trip advisor!!)

            Bridget I would like to know:
            1 -- where you did your dancing (since your tables were set up on the deck) did you use the concrete landing that faces the gazebo?

            2 -- Where exactly did you have the Dj set up? And what kind of music did he play?

            3 -- Why you chose the pier for your cocktail site as opposed to having everything by the gazeebo?

            Thanks so much, and I'm glad that your day was still a huge success, beautiful and memorable. :)

            Love is a wonderful thing!

              Does any one else know if there are other dj services available beside the resort and dj mania? I like the idea of having a dj but i don't think i will need all the extras the dj mania offers.

                thanx bridget for the review. it is very helpful. i am less worried about tiara's organisational skill as i am planning on having only 20- 30 guests at my wedding though now that i know the music has to stop at 23:00, it made me think twice about hiring a dj (for around an hour's dancing.. btw, did you hire a dance floor?).. i have the same question as the brbr.bo, i am wondering if anyone knows another dj other than the resort and dj mania?

                  Wow, I think everyone is in a panic now. I am leaving in 17 days, but I am having a fairly simple wedding. Especially after hearing all the extras Bridget had.
                  I am having a small ceremony on the beach, with the natural arch. Having the dinner/reception at the SSG. Bringing my ipod dock with our own music. My biggest request was to have a sundae bar instead of the dessert.
                  I am even bringing my own photographer.
                  I am planning on having a great vacation in the sun and a small classy beach wedding with very little stress : )
                  Best wishes to everyone and your planning.

                    Thanks Bridget! That was very helpful.

                    For the April/May brides, I am getting married on 26 of april and I received the form from Tiara on friday the 9th. I also checked the tickets and the hotel does not appear to have available rooms before april 25. My TA checked it out and said that only waitlist is available. I would suggest booking the rooms that are left after 25th, since they are giving great deals now. Last time I looked on resorts page, they were not charging for kids if you book in May :)

                      Wow. I just got my form from Tiara today. It says it should be completed and returned at least 15 days before the wedding. My wedding is in 9 days. Hmmmm.
