Just go on sandals/beaches site and plug in your dates and you should see what I mean, if you can't see it let me know and I will figure out a way to send you a link :)

        Anytime. :-) I am sure I will have more questions as the time goes by. Yep.. Just thought of one now. I wanted to know how do the rooms look? Do you have any pictures from your friend's wedding that you would be willing to share? You can PM me and not pu them on the board if you don't want many ppl to see. I really wanna see how the rooms look.

          Thank you thank you thank you for your input.

          I am so sorry about the passing of the new husbands mother....that is so sad.  I am sure she was there in spirit anyways.

          I am taking your suggestions and will email by fiancee about making changes to the reception time. Thanks. I'll also have him check on the right bed for the honeymoon suite too...but i'm pretty sure he was on top of that one.  He is the one that did all the bookings..lol

          I am sooo excited.  49 days to go for me!!!

           

          Question...where was the ceremony? On the beach, gazebo?  I am thinking of doing the gazebo because i really want to wear these nice sexy heels i purchased. lol

I actually just called my friend to double check with her and she said they booked the lowest level "concierge" room and they threw everything in for her.  The resort also does their very best to upgrade once you are there, especially if you are the bride and groom. The concierge level is awesome. Not only do you have 24 hour room service, but they literally also give you a liquor menu and will bring you bottles of wine, champagne, and liqour for free whenever you want. For instance on the morning of her wedding I surprised her with bottles of champagne and orange juice and we drank mimosas while I gave her her wedding gifts and we got ready... one experience we shared that we will never forget...

          Do yourself a favor though... since you are staying at Beaches, it is a family friendly resort and each of the categories comes with both king size beds as well as 2 double beds. When we went my fiance and I booked one of the "honeymoon suites" and ended up with 2 double beds and ended up either having to sleep seperately or totally uncomfortable. I was so upset and addressed it with the resort, but was informed that all the king sized beds were already taken up and we should have confirmed that before we arrived. This was my only real complaint of the week. In my mind, I thought "honeymoon suite" spoke for itself, but apparently it did not, so don't take any chances :)

           

          As far as the dinner... no we did not make reservations despite what they try to tell you. We ate dinner at the restaurant that you had to walk up the stairs to get to (sorry, I can't remember the name, but it is the only one where you need to walk up stairs... you will know what I mean when you get there). It was the fanciest one. I don't know what time your wedding is, but I think it opens at either 5 or 6 and we just arrived as it was opening and had no trouble all sitting together and it was awesome!! There is a bar/lounge at the bottom of the stairs that is nice so you can all gather there while you wait to go in. At worst you may end up with 2 large tables next to each other, but that's no different than a formal reception anyway.

           

          As for her music... I believe they did end up burning a CD, which they used for the ceremony and reception. There was a sort of DJ or MC that kept the flow going though. The processional and recessional went perfect as did the symbolic dances along with a tribute to her new husband's mother who passed away just days before the wedding :(

           

          Also, I might suggest switching the 30 minutes to an hour. I want to say the first 20-30 minutes we all kinda got settled and grabbed some drinks/food while they were nearby on the beach getting some nice photos done. The second half hour was when they were announced, did their dance, cut the cake, and we all got to celebrate a bit together before moving on to dinner at the restaurant. It was a special time I would hate to have rushed on you or for you to miss due to getting pictures.

           

          Let me know if you have any other questions, I am happy my little bit of experience has been able to help :) Let our countdowns continue!!!!!

            Does anybody know what kind of chairs they provide for the ceremony?!? Do they need covers over them?!? or are they garden style? can you pay extra for garden style chairs?

              Hey Ladies!! I am going to hunt through my pics so you can all get a better idea of the locations, rooms, etc. Her ceremony was in the gazebo (which was gorgeous) and then the reception was on the beach, so yes heels would be just fine for the ceremony. We all ended up going barefoot for the reception as heels, sand, and alcohol would probably have been a disaster

               

              As far as the chairs go... since I was a bridesmaid I didn't obviously sit in the chairs, but if I remember correctly they were nice white folding chairs. You can rent pads for them, but it is seeral dollars per chair and I honestly wouldn't spend any extra money on that... the ceremony is not that long, sae your money and spend it on something fun for you and your guests... I didn't hear a single complaint on the chairs so I don't think the pads were missed.

               

              Ok... I am going to sort through my pics now so hopefully you all can get a better feel for what things will be like... but don't stress, everything will be perfect no matter what you decide!!!

                  Ok so I am new at posting pics on here so I couldn't get the hang of the order it was posting things in or including text so I will narrate here starting fro the top ;)

                   

                  The Gazebo and its view... perfect!

                   

                  The view of her hubby as she walked down the aisle. From the view from her room where we finished getting ready we could see him walk up and begin his wait for her. I had to hide her on the other side of the room away from the balcony so neither of them could catch a peek while we waited for the WC to come up to the room and get us (I just got to tell her how excited and handsome he looked) ... talk about 5 minutes of butterflies for everyone!!

                   

                  Next... a fun view of the beautiful beach!

                   

                  Her bouquet of orchids with the BB theme. The picture does no justice. They were beautiful and whether you decide to upgrade or not you will not be disappointed.

                   

                  That's me! You can see the buildings in the background. They form a "U". Our room was on the top floor directly behind me facing the beach... her's was immediately to the right, which was perfect as we could overlook the gazebo as we got ready and then just came down the stairs and around the corner for the big walk.

                   

                  Next... cutting the cake and listening to speeches on the beach :)

                   

                  Last, the 4 of us celebrating and grabbing a drink after the reception waiting to go up the stairs to the restaurant for the best dinner of the week. The day was perfect!

                   

                  I will try to find some more pics especially to include the rooms and the chairs (I am pretty sure they are in my digital camera, I just have to uplaod them). In the meantime, I hope these at least give you a good feel of what to expect and how beautiful everything is sure to be!!!
