I actually went with the free wedding package offered by the hotel. I also did not receive a room upgrade as I had already booked the best honeymoon suite at the resort. June is a very busy season so if I had not booked the best room I would have been out of luck and stuck in a regular room. The hotel was completely booked to capacity in June. There were a lot of weddings and also a lot of vacationers. I also met a fellow bride to be (via Forum) prior to my wedding and she was scheduled to marry the week after I. I also helped her plan as she had 70 guests and believed that she would have been able to get all her planning in upon arrival. After returning from her wedding she was extremely happy that she listened and actually planned ahead, as she also said Chandlyn was not much help.
I did visit the resort prior to making my final decision on the resort and knew exactly what I wanted and what to expect from the trip. So when I planned I knew where I wanted everything location wise, hence all the detailing. I met with Chandlyn when I visited the resort the first time and basically got all the information from her at that point and also took lots of pictures of the location.
I actually did not use much of the resorts services- I used an off site photographer, DJ, MC and had the resort bake a sponge cake which no one even touched (gave away to the waiters and waitresses) and also had another 3 cakes brought in which everyone loved.

Thanks so much!!
