    I had intended to get married in a gazebo because I wanted to ensure that I had some shade during the ceremony but some of the beach pictures I've seen look so beautiful that now I am undecided. How about you?

        What day?  I'm the 8th!  Which wedding coordinator are you working with?  How many guests are you expecting?  


        My biggest issues have been trying to pick the photographer, whether or not to have a DJ, and reception location.  I would recommend picking your ceremony location and reception location ASAP (if you haven't already) so you get the spot you want.  I waited too long and now my reception location is already booked so trying to figure out another perfect spot.

          OMG!!!! I am so happy I found this forum! My wedding date is March 26, 2011 at the EDR and I so need help! This has been very nerve racking doing a destination wedding and I just want everything to turn out nice. 


          Question for y'all did you get a discount for booking a group of rooms?


          What photographer are you using? 


          I am worried about not having shade during the ceremony too but I really want the beach I am so torn :/ 


          SO much to do anyone else feeling overwhelmed because only so much is in your control?

              I'm using Claudia Photo for my pictures and from her website, she looks fantastic!  Best to pick that early though because the resort preferred photographers book up. 


              And yes, I did receive a group discount for having a certain number of guests.  That applied towards room rates and towards private functions of the wedding.  It is definitely worth while. 


              Good luck and happy planning!!
