    I think what she is saying is that silk petals are not allowed on the beach (I have read this elsewhere too, it's like an environmental protection thing? maybe because the resort is so close to the reef?) but you can use them if you are getting married at the gazebo. I would assume this is because they would be much easier to sweep up off the concrete in front of the wedding gazebo. If you are getting married on the beach and want to throw rose petals it sounds like they have to be the real thing.

The pricing should be the same as the photo packages she sends you. It's kinda weird because of things I have read and from my own experience it seems that Ana doesn't like it when people contact the vendors on their own for pricing etc.. probably because Dreams puts a mark up of some sort on it.
      Thanks Amber!

          HI rdsjcr:
          We are going to be at the resort at the same time as you are there. We are getting married on Oct. 28 but are all arriving on the 23rd. Our group is also in the same age group and probably just as rowdy. We are 28 and 29 and our friends are all around the same ages. We also have approx 40 people going. I can't believe it's only 5 months away!!

            I have a dilemma about the photographer. I am doing the Ultimate wedding package and so I don't know if it makes sense to hire Juan Navarro. His work is amazing, but I think the resort does a good job too. Below are some facts and questions I have about each. Can anyone help me out? Those of you who are hiring him, are you doing the Love or Ultimate wedding package?

            Juan Navarro:
            3 hr time limit
            gives you more photo's? (I've heard they are the same but it looks like Juan gives you more)
            Gives you ALL photo's taken??
            charges extra for TTD - but you get more photo's for the extra money, too.

            Resort photographer:
            no time limit (they told me)
            no extra charge for TTD
            fewer pictures?? only 50 included in package
            $15 per photo after the given 50

            Help please!!!

Some are friends and the rest are family. So, they won't be too rowdy but looking forward to having a good time! What room did yall book and what wedding package are you doing?

                    We booked the perferred oceanfront room. I wanted something a bit away from everyone else but nothing too expensive! We are doing the ultimate package. I just ordered my bridesmaid dresses today. So I'm super excited to have that marked off my list! We are doing a watermellon pink and a bright orange as our colors. Our guys are wearing ivory linen shirts with chocolate linen pants. I am getting kinda nervous since there is only 5 months left! What package did you chose and what are your colors?
