    Missjali, I was taking pictures in that area so I am sure you saw us. Good luck planning it was a wonderful day. Thank you, I was happy with how the dress turned out. Nykat57, The weather was warm and humid, people were for sure hot dancing,but it was worth it to me to be outside. I am for Michigan and it is still snowing here! There was not much wind, more of a breeze would have been nice. We just got the basic center prices that were free. They was greenery around a candle. I think the candles were fine all night, but I did not pay much attention. I really did not notice the centerpieces much as the setting was so beautiful. We had a lot of light with the glowing tables and dance floor. We were on the very end of the resort on the adult section. It was next to some rooms but I honestly did not see one person near the reception and there was a lot of security around that was off and out of sight unless you went and looked for them. The only time we saw anyone was on the walk from the adult lobby to the beach. Everyone we saw clapped and said congrats. Any children got to go with the wedding planner in her golf cart around to the reception spot so they did not walk through the adult lobby and pools. Honestly we LOVED the location it was more beautiful than I even thought it would be. Oh yeah that bathrooms had great AC in them to cool off!

      Hi Parrish, thank you for the review and the pictures! You are so beautiful and the pictures are great!

       

      How much did the resort charge you for the dance floor? They quoted $2,000 and i am not sure if it is worth paying that much.

       

      Thanks!

        The dance floor ranged from around $900 to $2,000 I think it depended on the size. We paid around 1,500 for the one we had. I think it was 16 x 16. It was not huge but worked perfect for our group. For us it was worth it and really brought a lot of life to the reception with it being the center point the tables were around. I think it brought more people out on the dance floor compared to if it was just sand.

          It seems like it is worth paying extra then. Thank you!

            Hi girls!

             

            Just wondering if any of you did this for your STD or the invites!?!? I made my own save the dates (small glass bottle, with sand, etc.) and now I'm looking to ship it...

             

            The cost per envelope was quoted at $2.07 at USPS, was wondering if any of you can advise as to what you guys did to mail out...personalized postage, etc.????

                I know that Trivera sent out messages in a bottle for her invites. But I think she left already for her wedding! Try her back in a week or so!

                    Hello Ladies, if you were working with Lianny and not getting a response, she quit. So, you will probably not get a response very soon but they are woking on assigning weddings to other coordinators and training someone new.
