          Thanks everyone! To answer the questions, we had to move all of our reception inside just due to the wind. Since we only had 25 guests we had plenty of room in the lobby for the DJ and dancing. However, if it is not too windy, I think it would be gorgeous outside on that part of the patio.

          We didn't let the weather ruin our day. It was still very sunny and nice for the actual ceremony. And I decided as long as we could have that at the gazebo, I would deal with the rest. :) And it was very fun in the lobby too.

          Regarding the hotel entertainment. I think they told everyone to be in the lobby by 10:30 to go with them to the clubs on the night of our wedding. But our wedding was on a Sunday night. I think they may leave later on the weekend nights. And I also believe it depends on which club they are visiting. I think they left a little earlier or later on other nights.

          I am not positive but I think your reception has to end by 11:00. With the Ultimate Package you get three hours for the dinner/reception and an hour for the cocktail hour. So our ceremony was at 5:00 and was over around 5:30. Then after a few photos our guests made their way into the Tower lobby bar for (free) drinks while they waited for our cocktail hour to start at 6:00. Then our dinner/reception was 7:00-10:00.

          But it all depends on the time of year you are getting married. The sun was starting to set as we were taking our last pics out on the beach. So I wouldn't suggest having your ceremony much later if you want daylight photos.

          Also, I know that nobody likes the new rocks near the gazebo. But honestly, I don't think anyone paid attention to that. The center of gazebo and the guests chairs are not facing the rocks. So you still get the pretty water view and the rocks will not be in many of your photos. Mainly just the aerial ones or from your balcony probably.

          And I forgot to mention this in my LONG review. But while we were at the gazebo during the ceremony, water actually splashed up and sprayed us just a tiny bit! It seemed magical! We were sort of nervous and holding hands and we just squeezed each other's hands and smiled when it splashed us. Because we knew nobody else probably noticed it. But it reminded of us where we were and how lucky we should feel at that moment!

          Please just let me know if you have any other questions.

          Amy

            That is so sweet! I didn't realize you could be splashed that far in, but I certainly wouldn't mind!

            Thanks for the info, it's a relief to see a recent review! 6 weeks and a day until my wedding!

                  Wow! Great review! The part about the water splashing up does sound magical! I must be a softy today as it brought tears to my eyes:) Thank you for the details about the DJ and the group wanting to go dif ways. I think we are having a smaller group and I was worried about that situation as well. So I think I will stick to the Ipod idea unless we turn out to have more people.


                  Again, CONGRATS!
