    Arrived two days before the wedding and stayed 10 days after.  Total 13 days.  Had our rehearsal Dinner at Regazzi...it was very very good. 
     Best dinners we had were at: Eduardos, Regazzi, Hemingways, The Wharf, CasaNova's, Yoshi Sushi,  7 Prime cuts and sunset at the Ritz (awesome-tell them you are on honeymoon and you will get special dessert), Morgans Harbor and a few others.......don't waste your time at The Lobster Pot, very overated.

    Cimboco had good breakfasts as did Eats Cafe.

    Sunshine grill has good burgers and fish tacos. 

     

    Captain Marvin is the best snorkeling/stingray excursions.  Dolphin cove better than the dolphins by the turtle farm.

     

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Will post pictures when get back from photog.

          CONGRATULATIONS!!!  It looks like it was magical.  What were your favorite choices in terms of planning -- vendors, venues, decorations, entertainment etc.  Recommendations are so helpful.  Was that steel drum player good?  It is so hard to find vendors like that online, and unfortunately I've had to pass on having a local coordinator due to budget restraints.  Thanks for any tips.  AND CONGRATS AGAIN xo

              Where did you have your hair done?  Having a tough time deciding on that one! Ive heard great reviews of Amy, can't wait to see the rest of the pictures :)  Who did you use for an officiant?  Haven't got that one nailed down yet either!!  Probably the most important one too!!

                Thanks!!!  Feel free to ask as much as you want......still very fresh and vivid in my mind.  LOVED every minute of it.

                 

                Arthur Henriquez, Marriage Officer  his email is:jurehen@candw.ky   Super nice and very helpful. Send vows for us to review and to add or change.  We did sand ceremony also and total time was 15 minutes......which doesn't seem like long but believe me in the sun.......feels longer, but would do all over again and not change a thing.

                 

                I also suggest going to the Registar office before you leave and get two more certified copies of the Marriage Certificate for filing purposes at home.  The office is right in Georgetown and took 10 minutes to get certified copies.

                 

                Michael Lemay the steel drum player was awesome!!!  Sounded great and so appropriate for setting.

                 

                Spatogo.  Helen is the owner and did make up and Heather her assistant did my hair.  Bot came to my hotel, in my room.  They did 5 peoples hair and make up, manicures too.  You can use me as referral if you wish.  They were super. GREAT JOB.  Very natural and better than I ever expected without never meeting them before.  Updo's CI$90 blowdrys CI$60 make up CI$70 manicure CI$35 go to website and look under weddings www.spa2go@candw.ky  email:spa2go@candw.ky    Definitely reccomend them.  You can use me  

                 

                Flowers and decor by Celebrations.  Food Hemingways.  Band Mainstream.....jazz reggae  you can find them on the web.  They had our family members up and dancing and doing the conga!!  It was so fun to watch everyone having such a great time.

                 

                I can't think of any other details but if you have any other specific questions feel free to ask.

                    Would love a recap of the vendors and venues you used and whether or not you would recommend them. I'm strongly considering GC for a April / May 2012 wedding (I've vacationed there a number of times). Would love a reception venue at a restaurant or similar on the beach (for the wedding) and dinner and dancing. Trying to keep this as simple and fun as possible for about 35 - 50 people. Thank you!
