    OK..I think I need help!! I thought this was going to be easy. My wedding is at ROR on Novmber 18 at 2pm.
    What do I need to plan for. I am reading about receptions at the beach or the pool, chairs and sashes, free package or Royal package, planning a year in advance. I am getting stressed reading all this and now don't know where to start....
    Please help!!!!!

      First relax and breath! Next make a task list and conquer one thing at a time. Trust me you will get through it!

        I agree with Mrs. B...relax. It's really all up to you what type of DW you want to have. You have the ceremony time set so that's good. Do you know where it will be held? As for the reception, it's not something everyone does. It's really up to you and your FI. Some brides (me) are having a private reception afterward. That's where you get into the packages and other locations, menus, linens, music, and decorations like chair bows. Other brides choose to have a semi-private dinner at one of the restaurants. Some brides choose none of the above. It's all your choice. I'm not familiar with your hotel but I'm sure all of this info is on that thread. Sooo you can relax and figure out what you want. There's info here for all types of weddings. Good luck!!

            For most brides finding the right location is usually the hardest part and you have done that already. From here on out it gets easier. As suggested just make a list of what needs to be taken care of in order of priority and work closely with your wedding planner to make sure what need to be taken care of here is done. Make it a goal to tackle just one item a day and you will get it done. If you have a lot to do strive for two items.

            Also delegate, delegate, delegate, get family members and friends you can count on to help you tackle your list.

            Take care and all the best

                Spanky, congratulations! You've heard it already to relax and breath. From there, you get to have fun. Read what's on here and talk with your FI to determine what you want. Do you want it simple with ceremony & dinner? Do you want additional decorations?
                Contact Chandlyn and ask for the price list of options you can choose. She will get back to you (usually within a week) and it will give you an idea of what you can choose from.
                There are 2 choices for the ceremony : Beach or garden gazebo. Lots of brides on this site have provided pictures and reviews of both. You can also get a ton of pictures on tripadvisor.
                You can also decide, do you want:
                Private dinner/private reception - that will cost extra. (approx. $55/person for dinner) (can be held poolside or on the beach)
                Semi-Private dinner/private reception - Dinner is included in all the wedding packages and then you can have a private reception either poolside or beach (approx. $15/person for set up and bar)
                Semi-Private dinner no reception - the simpliest and most cost efficient

                Have a talk with your FI and decide what YOU BOTH want then go from there. You really have the opportunity to customize the overall wedding for what is important you and what is in your budget. Have fun!!

                  I understand how over whelming this site can be at first. But if it was not for this site, I would have never of thought of all the little added touches that make your wedding "yours". Thanks to all the ladies on here, that answered all my questions. You will get everything figured out. And everyone on here is super friendly.....so just ask away.

                    Believe it or not, the vast majority of your "planning" will happen with your resort's wedding coordinator starting a month or so before you arrive, and finalizing details when you get there. Unless you are doing a ton of DIY projects, or are planning a really elaborate wedding, take a deep breath, and relax. Everything will come together beautifully!
