Also, for the ceremony, is there a microphone? Is it hard for the guests to hear what's going on (both in the gazebo and on the beach)?

Thanks RonNMel! I will try to track some pics of Sam's ceremony on the beach and post. The pier is at the Varadero Golf Course. More info about that in my review! There is a microphone...I think everyone could hear just fine at both loactions.

 

I just posted a review under Wedding Reviews!

Hey again Chevy!

 

Thanks so much for answering those questions. ONe more...for the music (first dances, walking down the aisle ect) did you have burned CD's with your music, or an IPOD?

Thanks for the pictures! They're beautiful.

 

I'm sold on having my wedding in the gazebo too.

We had our songs burned to CDs as Yahimara told us originally there were no iPod hookup. For the sake of keeping things simple, I had three songs I wanted played during our ceremony - one for the bms walking down the aisle, one for me and one for after we kiss and walked back down the aisle together. These were the only 3 songs on the CD which I marked CD#1, and it seemed to make things easier for the guy taking care of the music. Yahimara kind of nodded to him when it was appropriate to stop one song and when to start the next etc.

I had a CD marked "CD #2" which I gave to a friend to give to the DJ at the private reception. The first song was for Robin and I's first dance, the second for my Dad and I, third for Robin and his Mom etc....again, it seemed to keep things simple for them.

We had the disco private from 9-11pm when we did these dances and we found out that they could use our iPods!! A few people ran back to their rooms to get theirs but the DJ (who you will all get a kick out of, he's funny) has all popular Top 40 type of music you'll want.

Sorry I'm rambling! Bottom line is bring your iPods, but I'd burn CD's for the ceremony and important dances :)

Congrats on your wedding Siobhan! You looked gorgeous! :)

 

We had a blast for our wedding week at the ILA as well. We chose the beach ceremony for ours. It was HOT but the breeze was amazing. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.

 

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!
