    Thanks JayKay!  Futurekeese, I was thinking the same thing, but I would be to scared that anything would go "missing" or never make it there, or get  misplaced. I dont know who you are flying with but my travel agent told me about something called kilo-flex, in which you purchase weight before you leave, so you arent paying through the nose when you get to the airport. You would just have to pre pack all of your stuff and see how much all of it weighs. Hope this helps!

      We did our rehersal dinner at the Don Pablo and it was a terrible experience!!!  The service for our large group was sooo slow, it took about 4 hours to finish!  We did The Grill for our welcome dinner and it didn't go too badly.  They had to split the large group up into 3 tables but we were all beside each other and service (and the food) was great!

       

      The buffet might be an idea as you can all sit together off to the side, and you can get food whenever you want.

I cant decide between Don Pablo, Dolce Vita, or The Grill, or are there any other  options? I know I want to do Mikado with my bridal party the evening before the wedding, so that one is out.

       

      Thanks ladies

         I didn't ship anything down, just brought an extra suitcase full of wedding stuff!  I also used friends and family members suitcases that were travelling light.  Most people don't mind if they are under the weight allowance and will toss some of your stuff in their bag.  That way you know it's all coming down with you.  I think it only cost us $20 extra to check another suitcase.

          Are there more than one weddings in a time period? For example, would there be one on the beach at the same time as one in the gazebo???

            I know they can do up to four weddings a day. I dont think they can do two weddings at a time, as the beach area is to the right o the gazebo and the speaker systems would impede on one another. I couldnt see them doing that. Good question, Im going to email them about that one.

               No they don't do more than one wedding at a time.  Both wedding coordinators are there to help you during your ceremony, so there's no way there could be another wedding going on at the same time.

                      I wnet there with West Jest. They told me that they don't have a cloth rack in those type of planes. However we were 6 brides on that plane and the flight attendant dedicated one storage shelf just for dresses, so she lined them all together, one on top each other and it was totally fine
