    The gazebo is NO WAY near private. The beach location was and the set up is beautiful. The terrace is ok, but it sort of defeats the purpose of the beach destination wedding. IMO for what that is worth.

      We will have about 16 guests. Have you seen a wedding in the garden? I have not heard anyone speak about it or see any pictures, but I would love that.

        My wedding is on August 8..when should I start hearing from Ana for the final count? I am using a TA but feel like there hasn't been any contact with anyone in a while. Just getting worried because it is coming up soooo quickly!!!

          The garden area is gorgeous, it is in the middle of the hotel, but there is not much traffic there. While we were there for the week we never saw an actual wedding there.

          alisonjimmy, we were never able to get ahold of Ana for any details after the deposit was taken. BUT, with that said, we met with her the day before and set all the detail up. From food to flowers, music and final decorations. Ana is very effecient with all your details. She has a check list and covers everything and pulls it off wonderfully. The girls had their make up and hair done in the salon also. The hair was just like the pictures they took with them and the makeup felt "heavy" but looks amazing in the pictures. They are not cheap, but they looked gorgeous.

            Thanks for the info. We chose a DW b/c we wanted to spend $$ on vacation, not a wedding/reception...the beach wasn't the reason we wanted a DW, so I am glad to hear there may be a garden option!! My fiance owned 2 dive shops in Palm Springs for 12 years and had enough sand to last him a lifetime, and that was his ONLY request for the entire trip...NO SAND! ha ha!

              Your reception is going to be amazing no matter where you have it :) The whole resort is beautiful and I'm sure she'll find you a perfect location!!!!

              Thanks. I know it will be great. It's just hard putting all your trust in someone and not knowing what's going on until the last minute! From all the reviews though, I know I have absolutely nothing to worry about. Yours is coming soon....

                Anyone who is using the Ether frame for their sand ceremony kit (or has)...how did you glue it together? The link on the original forum is gone. Also, did you have any problem bringing it home? I wanted to use the sand from the beach but I'm afraid it won't be packed in there and it will all mesh together on the trip home. Any suggestions on how to seal it so it won't mix too much? Thank you!

                    did you try Wedding Invitations, Bridal Shower Invitations & Announcements by Wedding Paper Divas - might be able to find some cute ones there!

                      The time flew by! I can't believe I'm just over two months away!
                      I'm with you - even though all the reviews are excellent, I still freak out!
