    Elizabeth, congrats on your engagement!!! Where are you thinking of getting married based on your visit? Beach, Gazebo???

      We werent thrilled about those choices either, but have decided to get legally married at home. We're looking at it as a "technicality" and more like signing some papers then actually being married. We arent considering ourselves married until the symbolic ceremony at DPB and only a few close family members know the truth.

You ladies have nothing to worry about trust me i am very picky and absolutely loved the resort. The resort is not big its not small either i thought it was perfect, i also checked melia while i was there although the resort is nice as well it was just to big, u need a train to get to the beach ridicules!!! anyway i am very content with my choice i had a great experience and i think you all will love it=)

         

        also regarding the poolside. its in the center of the resort. if u go to the main pool u will see a little bridge and that is where it is as per sharron if u want it to be there it has to be after 6-630.. so it wont work for me and i don't like that it is in the center of the resort. now the other rooms they cant change the color lol but she says with lighting u cant tell what color the room is. not sure about that lol=) over all the resort is wonderful=)

            It doesn't sound so bad when you say it lol. I offered to pay extra for a judge to come later in the day but Sharron said it is not a matter of cost, they have other obligations, etc. If it is very early in the day I will definetely reconsider getting married at home and not telling anyone.

                We are getting married at home first as well and then doing a religious ceremony at the resort with Pastor York which he follows up with the symbolic ceremony. Based on the vows and the ceremony he sent me, it seems quite beautiful and perfect for what I truly wanted for both my FI and myself as well as our guests.

                    Hey Elizabeth, I'm glad your trip went well and that you were able to put any worries about the resort to rest. Thanks for the info. I am using a Travel Agent from Cruise One @ www.cruiseone.com. They specialize in cruises but she happens to be a family friend. Our group rates are as follows: 4Nights (double occupancy) $468.54 pp/pn, 4 Nights (single occupancy) $661.20, & 7Nights (double occupancy) $786.60.

                      FYI

                       

                      When i received group rate info from the hotel, they also mentioned that if we did not want to go through the hotel, we could use apple vacations for the same rates.  they actually have staff onsite at the hotel.  The rates they quoted me are in line with those shared by CCin331.
