    You should be fine at 6:00. Most people start getting ready for dinner about then and the beach will be clear. Just try to decide when you get there if you like that location. You can choose to move it to another gazebo if it is available. Some other EDR brides have said they changed the location once they got there.

They are so amazing there with coordinating and organizing. I think we've had brides (on this forum) get married at almost every location on the resort, and they have all been so beautiful-- so it's def a win-win!
      You guys will have such an amazing time- just enjoy every second of it!

      Wish I was going back with you guys!!!!
      Thanks Shannon. You have really helped to alleviate a lot of stress with your glowing review of EDR! Hope you are enjoying life as a newlywed! I know you guys have been together for a long time. Does it still feel like you guys are newlyweds or does it feel the same? Micah and I have been living together for 6 years so I am curious.

            How much time did you allow between your ceremony and your reception to take pictures? I am afraid I will miss out on part of my reception because the ceremony starts at 6:00 and the reception starts at 7:00. What do you think?
            I had them come for pre bridal for 30 minutes, ceremony at 5pm then reception started at 7. So I did have 2 hrs which was more time than needed. We did pictures from 5:30-6:15 on the beach and ceremony site. As we walked toward reception took some others on the grounds and actually got to our reception about 6:45. They were all set up and ready to go...Are you doing reception coverage and how many hours are you doing? I would think you may only get to the reception about 15-30minutes later. So depends on the photo coverage you have. Our ceremony also started about 10 minutes late.

              Thank you so much. I was very happy with the purple too. I loved the iris' too I'm so glad I went with them. The contrast was perfect. They also corelated them in with my hanging corsages. Then my husband also wore one.

                  Hmm-the name change has been super weird, but other than that-- it doesn't feel hugely different-- though, it's always catches me off guard to hear someone say "wife" or "husband"- like who are they talking about!- and when I call the bank or something and they say "mrs watkins" -I giggle to myself -but other than that- not really... but we are like you guys- been together --it'll be 11 yrs this fall- and lived together the past 5..... it's been fun-- but not hugely hugely different.. I did chop 7 inches off my hair- kinda randomly- I think that and the name change has big the biggest differences since we got back! :)

                    I just heard from Monica
                    Apparently they need to know ahead of time - otherwise they will make half of one of your choices and half of the other -
                    This is for the private reception.
                    They need to do this to help figure out costs etc.
                    UGH! One more thing on my list of things to do now!

                      That is so funny because I plan to chop my hair off too once we get back. I didn't even think about adjusting to the name change - obviously, my head hasn't moved beyond the wedding yet!
