      Welcome to Facebook | Facebook

      Here are some amature photos that one of my guests took.

      Also, for those of you using an outside photographer but have the package that includes the resort photographer, make sure to schedule a separate session during your visit. Here are some photos that they took the day after the wedding.

      I'll try to post a review soon. Basically everything was beautiful.


      Thank you so much for posting!!! Your wedding looked beautiful!

          Can you take down your own fake flowers with you for your wedding party?

            Hey ladies! i was wondering who booked through the hotel, and who used travel agent for guests?? I got quotes from Apple and I am not that happy with them. Mostly because the charter plane only lets u travel certain days such as thurs to sun or tues to sat or sun to sun...now what if my guest wants to go thurs til tues....im curious to know what everyone else is doing thanks ladies

              Don't you feel as if your day isn't special if there is another bride getting married on the same day as you there?

                I feel the same way!!! Ours is mostly twentysomethings with a group of our parents friends in their 50's and they like to have just as good of a time! Our reception is going to be in one of the restaurants so hopefully we won't get too many complaints.

                  We chose to do a layover because of the charter dates. A lot of our guests are staying Wed-Mon on a charter flight and payed about $1100 per person for a standard gardenview room. This was through a TA. The price has definitely gone up. I've heard the prices are more expensive if you book through the resort though.

                    Hey! I used apple and it has been wonderful. The travel agent I use is through Apple vacations and we were able to get pretty good deals. Our wedding is June 19 and our guests will be staying for 7, 5 or 4 nights. The rate is $155 a night per person in the deluxe room. The good thing about Apple was they let us put down a deposit of only $50 a person and then we had to pay in full 60 days prior. This helped a lot of people! We did not use their charter plane, everyone got their own airfare because it was cheaper that way. I also would recommend Apple because they will give you the extra promotions that some other TAs will not. We ended up getting a total of 12 free nights (2 people per night) when it was all said and done. My fiance and I will not be paying for our room and we were able to split up the other free rooms to our bridal party.

                    Did you call Apple directly? If would recommend going on their website and searching for a travel agent in your area.

                      This can happen anywhere. Even in the states most banquet halls and resorts can have multiple weddings a day. When it comes down to it you most likely won't even notice any other wedding that day!
