We had our private dinner from 6:30-8:30 in Del Chef but had the Steakhouse menu. They forgot our lobster dinners, but when Yahimara found out she quickly arranged for us to have them at our a la carte dinner the next night instead. All worked out just fine!

We had booked our dinner originally from 6:30-9:30 but when we had our meeting, Yahimara advised she couldn't shut down the restaurant for anymore than 2 hours. We didn't rent the disco privately, so we did our speeches & first dance right during the private dinner. Unfortunately, we didn't get served our appetizers until after 7:00pm so we were running really tight on time and had to rush through quite a few things. We did get everything in but the next wedding dinner was coming in at 8:30 before we had a chance to finish. We were doing our dances while our dessert was still being served at 8:30.

All in all they were small issues and we had an AMAZING vacation. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

I'll probably add a review and pictures later, but we're off to our honeymoon caribbean cruise for the week!

Also, a big congrats to Grace!!! It was awesome to meet you in person :) I didn't see your wedding, but i'm sure you looked gorgeous! We did hear your party in your private disco though :) Can't wait to hear all about it!

Thanks so much Lisa, I saw some pics on Facebook and you looked beautiful! Congrats to you, hope you enjoyed your honeymoon cruise!

Siobhan

Hello everyone! WOW everyone is such a wealth of information. I am getting married at this resort in August, I wish I knew about this forum earlier!

Can anyone suggest which restaurant would be great for a party of 30?! My fiance and I want the have the private dinner, but Yahimara said we need to pay extra for the gala set up as well...does anyone know what she means? It will be greatly appreciated!

Hi there,

I think for a party of 30 people you could get away with one of the smaller a la cartes - the Romantico maybe? There was a lady there our week with about 30 guests and this is where here dinner was. I would suggest the Italian as well but the food there was awful!! There really aren't any other options unless you take a section of the Steakhouse.
The gala dinner set-up fee is the private dinner charge. $15 per person. To be honest, I don't think think this restaurant could fit more than 30 people at once, so it may not even be necessary to pay that extra charge?? I'd skip it. Hope that helps!

We just got back from an AMAZIMG two weeks at this resort for our wedding. We had seventy friends and family travel down with us and it was the best two weeks of our lives! I am just getting back into the swing of normal reality life (blah) but I will post a proper review soon. I can say that this resort is stunning, and the wedding day was beyond anything I cold have asked for. Everything turned out perfect (eventhough every single thing was changed). The best advice I can give for now is to not worry if they change something, they know what they are doing and will make your wedding day perfect!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
