Our date isn't until April 2014 and there will only be around 16 of us including 4 children. We weren't told of there being a maximum number of children to get married in the Gazebo on the La Perla side.
Currently we have booked the beach for the wedding and poolside for the reception as we were only given the options of the gazebo, beach or boardwalk for the wedding and ballroom or poolside for the reception.
Based on the fact that there won't be many of us and we have booked the Chill Out Package without any extras at this time as I'm not sure how far our budget will stretch, do you think we have chosen the best locations for our wedding and reception or should we change them? All advice and comments will be VERY welcome as I haven't really got a clue what I'm doing!
Because we are planning to have a large sit down meal and evening party for all our friends and family when we get back to the UK, I don't think we are going to be able to afford many of the wedding extras on top of the Chill Out Chic package, but all ideas are very welcome. I was worried that the gazebo for the wedding might look a bit plain and boring if we don't pay out more to decorate it? I'm also worried about not being able to wear heels on the beach as I'm only 5ft 2" and my partner is 6ft 3". I worry that we are going to feel a bit silly sat by the pool having our reception with so few of us. Also if we get married on the beach are we going to have people in swimwear walking by and staring. Hopefully my husband to be won't spot a bikini babe on the beach and marry her instead...haha!
If anyone can help me as I keep going round in circles I would really appreciate it. With the beach being so short and all the negative press about it I even started to consider changing to a different hotel, but no other hotel seems as nice as the Paradisus La Esmeralda....arghhh..this is hard work and I am rubbish at decisions. Someone please help me!
