April, did you let the planners know you are just interested in a civil ceremony as you will be already legally married prior to arrival? I let them know but they didn't make any mention of it so I wasn't sure if they understood or were ok with it! I selected the free package and am just adding additional things and I mentioned that but they didn't confirm or make mention of it in my response. Just curious if they addressed it at all with you!

Haven't decided on the gazebo either, but I have been to this resort and had an absolute blast there, so I'm getting married there!
Are the bars suitable for partying afterwards, in my opinion, not really. The bars are more walk up and order a drink and thats about it. You could stand around there, but it's not like a club bar, unless you're in the disco which (if I remember correctly) opens around 11. You can always have guests meet up in the lobby bar which is semi indoors, but it would be a little more intimate. No dance area though, but it'd be ok for cocktails with your guests!
I plan to have guests meet us at the disco when it opens after our formal dinner reception. It'll give them a chance to relax, shower, do whatever they want to do before really having a party!!!
