    Thanks for the info! I looked into this, But FI isnt a fan. lol

     

    I think I am going to have to just bite the time. and have the wedding at 1 so I can have it at the beach gazebo.  They sent me a few pictures of the Lagoon Gazebo AND for me personally it is just not where I want to have my wedding. The lagoon water just looks gross. It looks like the lake water here at home lol If I wanted that i would have goT married here at the lake.

     

    I have to send them a email today to advise them what I am going to do. They asked what else can be done to rectify this. I think I am going to mention a few complimentary things that they should be giving us. I feel like them saying Im sorry isnt cutting it.

     

    I hope no one else has this problem as its a night mare!

        Can I ask what model Bose you bought and was it loud? We are doing the after dinner party at the beach and do not want to pay for the DJ either! We did find a Mic (Imic) That can be used with your iphone or ipod so that should be good enough. Does anyone know if you are allowed to play low music at the semi private dinner? Thanks! 

      Sorry, I'm not too sure which model it was as a friend was kind enough to let us borrow it. But I know he purchased it sometime in 2011 if that helps. It was quite loud, my sister's bf who is a dj was really impressed with it. Now we were at the Plantation so I'm not too sure how the sound would be at the beach. Maybe you can test it outdoors just to see how the sound is. Hope this helps!

        Was it wireless? If so, it was likely the portable BOSE system, retails for 299.99...if not they have other models similar.

            We've just agreed on a photography package with Marcia E Roberts, very excited. Has anyone else booked/used her?

              Got a email back today. Telling me I can have 3 pm but have to have it at the lagoon gazebo. My whole reason for going away is because I want it on the beach! Ugh I almost wanted to cry today because I feel like I will have to pick eithe a earlier time for the beach or a later time and have the lagoon gazebo!

              I'm still holding out for my time and the beach. I'm a little pissed that all they are saying is we are sorry. How about offering a discount or a upgrade. I have my TA working on it now

              So frustrating !!
