      We also did a rehersal dinner in the Grill restaurant, but just for our wedding party and immediate family...I think it was around 20 people and they didnt have a problem with it. I believe I contacted Chandlyn who then directed me to Andrea.

      What is everyone doing for a rehearsal dinner? Another bride and I are getting the run around... Chandlyn says to call 2 weeks before to make a reservation for 30 people but the PR person at the hotel says they don't reserve the restaurants for that big of a party without paying the close down fee of $2500... Any already marrieds do a rehearsal dinner or anyone getting close have any info?? Thanks!!

        question for previous brides: how many songs did you play for your processional?  I only have two bridesmaids so I was going to play one song for them, one for me, but now I'm wondering if maybe that will take too long? Is it ok to just play one song for all of us?

            I would definately play two songs so that it highlights the entrance of the bride. I had canon d for the bridesmaids and here comes the bride for my entrance.  They will stop the music and start the new song when you appear.

                    Hello Ladies !!!

                     

                    I just had my wedding Friday june 10th and I am now back from vacation. Everything was absolutely amazing and stress free. I had a guest list of 40 people. We met with Chandlyn the very first day in the afternoon and planned the whole wedding in 10 minutes. We informed her of all our outside vendors which was fine, no fee. However it does not get discounted off the package if you decide to use your own photographer and florist. Even though we had our own photographer, the resort photographer was also there because it was included in our package. 

                     

                    We gave her our things (chair sashes, fans, petals, table runners) for the weddings the day before to be set up in the morning. When she finds out your outside vendors, she contacts them for the rest of your stay, we only called them one time to settle a balance. 

                     

                    THE WEDDING DAY- husband hung out at the pool, I, at the beach until two hours before the wedding lol so crazy. When I got to my room, Chandlyn delivered flowers to decorate my room which i later found out was planned for me by my husband. Love him . When I was ready, i met with her in the lobby at the set time with my girls,( actually we were late but shes so relaxed about everything. everythings "no problem") then we rode off to the beach in a golf cart type of car, very spacious. 

                     

                    We had our reception at the Garden Grill, not our first choice. But the Dolce Vita was closed on that day :/ Everything still turned out great because at 630 no one is really at the restaurant that early. However, be aware it is a lil hot in there, it has AC but its so big that the air does not circulate well. To add very few people complained though, that I know of. Also, no music is allowed to be played there, but the option to do speeches (with no mic) is doable. 

                    The time between the ceremony and the reception worked out well as most of the guests went to their room to shower and change because the beach ceremony became a little hot with the sun. 

                    The reception was followed by a later after party, we advised our guests to meet with us at 11pm at the disco. We had a blast ! took over that place, the music they played was kind of old reggae and hip hop which was kool but we tipped the DJ for song requests helped.  Anyway when you're with family and friends you always have the best time. 

                    After much thought we decided renting the gazebo for two hours was not worth it for us. (Don't know if this helps but we are in our twentys but we had a mix of young and old at the disco) 

                     

                     The next day, we all went on the catamaran excursion, Where we went snorkeling, Climbed Dunn Rivers Falls and partied on the boat with drinks on the way back, the boat speeds up so that you get wet on the way back. What an amazing adventure!! Strongly advise everyone to do it. 

                     

                    For the rest of the stay, we met with different groups of our guests spending quality time here and there. We spent the last 4 days of our 2 wk vacation relaxing alone (everyone left on sunday after the wedding.)  

                     

                     We didnt expect spending so much time greeting our guests (because we chose to receive them upon arrival with Welcome Bags) , the first two days we were so busy that we only spent 5 min at the pool before we have to do something else. 

                     

                    Here is a photo from our special day enjoy ! Any questions plz feel free.
