        Perfect, thanks for all the info!! I'm super anal and I'm a visual person so I planned to write everything down exactly how I wanted it anyway for Chandlyn. Also- we provided each of our guests with a beach towel so I'm happy I did it now because you are the 3rd person to say they are always non existent at the resort, lol. As a wedding gift my parents are flying down our photogs we love so I don't even want the resort ones there, lol, I heard they don't take very good pics from someone else too. Thanks again for all the helpful info!

        Thanks, we had a blast, everything went as planned (even better).

         

        We ate at the Dolce Vita (Italian restaurant).  The food was simply the best.  We had the Chicken, which was divine.  The service in the restaurant was the best.  The waitress even sang for us!!!  The only thing about this restaurant that was bad... They have ROACHES!!!  there are no bugs in the whole resort (except for mosquitos), but there are bugs in the Dolce Vita because it is right on the beach.

         

        We did see a few brides have their reception at the main buffett (the Orchard) that way everyone can have what they want to eat (there is quite a huge selection of food).  The Grill is an amazing restaurant.

         

        The walk from the Golf cart to the Gazebo isn't too bad unless you have on super high shoes like i did!  The best part of that is it gives you time to reflect and collect your thoughts, and see your groom waiting for you,

         

        The minister an amazing person, he gives a great sermon, and I suggest doing the sand ceremony.  Truly a nice touch.

         

        We brought an ipod, but at the last moment we changed our minds and just told Chandlyn to let the DJ play wantever he usually does.  We didn't want any problems with the music.  It turned out to be a good decision.  They played the traditional wedding song while i walked down the isle and after the ceremony they played Bob Marley's One Love.

         

        I do recommend having any of your decoration ideas on paper (easier for Chandlyn to decorate as wanted).

         

        I highly recommend not using the resort's photographers as the only photographers.  They don't use proper cameras (they don't consider lighting or anything).

         

        Beach Towels are so hard to get!!! we brought our own.

         

        If you need a great taxi driver to take you places let me know, i will give you his number.

            Hey Dragonage - Congrats on being a married woman!  Your pics are absolutely amazing!  So glad to hear such a great review!  I'm less than thrilled about the roaches because this is the second time I have heard this...but what can you do I guess!?! :S  

             

            I would love the name and number of a great taxi driver!!! We're looking for someone we can hire for the full day to drive us around to different TTD sites!  That would be much appreciated!

              I'm looking for some information, and Im hoping someone who has been to this resort can help.

               

              My aunt was at this resort about 6 months ago with a friend and they hired someone at the resort, possibly named Spencer, to transport them from excusions and back to the resort.  She did give me a card with his contact number, but somewhere in between moving from house to house and city to city, it dissapeared.  I am wondering if any of you may know who this person is and if you would know how to contact him or have his contact number.  Thanks in advance!

                Hi Ladies! Trev and I are getting married on April 21 2012 at 4pm! We have had a lot of problems too with Donnalee, now we only deal with Chandlynn. I do have a question "Do you have to have a long form birth certificate or can you use the short form cards?" Thanks Angela

                  Did you have to provide long form or short form birth certificates? I've been trying for ages to get a respond from Chandlynn! Congrats on your wedding!
