Also, people can stand on the balcony of their room and watch your ceremony. I think it also depends on what time of day your ceremony is and how many people are out at the poo. The good thing about the gazebo is nobody can walk directly behind your ceremony like they can on the beach. I don't know if this will help, but here is a picture I took while they were setting up a ceremony at the gazebo. I was sitting in a lounge chair at the pool. Click the image to open in full size.
Laura- thank you SO SO SO much... You are so helpful and I know putting a lot of our minds at ease :)

Can I ask one more question... what did you do for your reception? (DJ or IPOD) and where did you have it?

Thanks :)

You're welcome :) I had a DJ for the reception. I used DJ Doremixx (Ivan). I had originally planned on using an ipod but then I got stressed trying to put together music and made the decision to get a DJ. This was one of the best decisions I made! Ivan is awesome and made the reception so much fun! I had my reception on the pool deck. That is the one that is between the infinity pool and the beach.

I finally got my review written...hope it helps everyone!! :)

Oh and something else I wanted to let everyone know...I put insulated travel mugs in my OOT bags. Nobody used them...the drinks at the resort come in nice big glasses so there wasn't really a need for them. They took up a lot of room in the suitcase to get them there and probably, if I had to do it all over, I might not have gotten them. Everyone really liked them though and I've seen them being used since we got home.

Thanks for all the help. Question: Who put the sashes on the chairs?

I found out from Hagen (sales manager at Dreams) that they are currently in the process of getting another golf contract for our wedding times. He said there will be golf after May 1. Again, I have this in an email to confirm what he said over the phone... but who knows if they will honor it!
Girl I do not understand how they can keep doing this. You can not keep going back and fourth what you offer to people. I am really annoyed by the whole thing.

Thanks I think the price to rent is outrageous. I can buy my own speakers for less then what it is to rent. The 198 you mentioned is per hour correct?

But it would be nice to have a tech to handle the music. Oh the choices.

I gave them to Ana and she took care of it. She did the same for the reception!

Laura - how much did it cost per chair when you bring your own sashes if you don't mind me asking? Also do you have to bring enough sashes for the ceremony chairs as well as the chairs for the reception or do they re-use them after the ceremony for the reception?

Thanks for answering all of our questions! :)

It did not cost me any extra to have the sashes put on the chairs. I am not sure about the second question...I had enough sashes for both. I think, though, that there would be enough time for them to re-use them for the reception. They would have at least an hour if you are having a cocktail hour. We had about 2 hours (maybe a little less) between the ceremony and reception.
