Jcruzin,

I am getting married at the same location. Maybe you can re-assure that everything will turn out great because I am beginning to stress. I have a couple of questions:

How did you decorate the gazebo (standard or upgraded)?, what did you do for the welcome/rehersal dinner since the options are costly and limited? Where was your reception held and did you do a cocktail hour? And lastly what menu options did you choose for your reception? Oh and what did your guests think of the resort?Sorry for all the questions.

Hi Terri1225, I felt the same way right before the wedding, its normal. Especially, when you really dont know what anything will look like until you actually see it. I did get the upgraded gazebo, in fact that was the only thing I actually upgraded and I am sooo happy I did. With the standard you only get to flower pieces at the gazebo and with the upgraded you get more plus they drape toole around it. I also added the aisle runner, which they spread flower petals on. I did not have a rehearsal dinner, but I did have a welcome dinner at the buffet at no cost for all the guests. My WC let the buffet manager know that I wanted to get a few tables sectioned off and they did, we had to get there exactly at opening to ensure we were all together, but it was nice. I had previously made welcome bags for all the guests, so insteadof paying the charge to have them delivered to the rooms, I just handed them all out at the Welcome dinner. As for the day of the rehearsal, we had decided to forgo the dinner, since we already had the Welcome dinner. As far as a reception goes, I did not have an actual reception instead we only had a cocktail hour in the same location as the ceremony. The ceremony was at 3, so the cocktail hour started right after which was about 3:30 and it was only suppose to be til 5, but I was lucky enough that they didnt have any other weddings at my site, so it went on til 6 instead. The way they had it set up was beautiful, the tables with the cocktails we had chosen were set up to the far side of the gazebo with a pretty cake table and our drink table. Guests just lined up to get the cocktails and then just mingled around or sat down on the chairs that were set up for the ceremony. We had our music playing from our IPOD, so we also had some guests dancing. It was great, everyone had a good time and the hor'deuvres were good. We had gotten jerk shrimp, chicken on a stick, mini grilled cheese, mini beef patties and some pork plantain. Then as drinks we got Jamaican rum and fruit punch. And the cake was delicious. Now, for the resort review....some of my guests were a little dissapointed with the resort, they didnt feel it was as all inclusive as it should have been. There is no food available after 10p.m. and the drinks are very limited after that time also. And some, thought the service people could have been nicer. But overall, I think most had a very good time. Just be aware, that some of my guests had extra charges placed on the credit card that they had left for deposit purposes only. While, the resort apologized and eventually returned their money, it was an inconvenience for my guests. So, I would suggest for everyone to use cash when holding the room incidental deposit. Well, I hope I answered your questions, please let me know if you have anymore. Also, not sure if you seen my pics on one of my previous posts, but if you havent, I have a post that reads Finally some pics, if you want to see how the gazebo looked.
