@KeriT21 I've looked into it and here's my thinking: if it were me and I was pregnant, I probably wouldn't go. If they are worried about it, I probably wouldn't do any excursions or leave the resort. I think you are prob fine on the resort but I would still wear bug spray. I got a little concerned about my fiancé because they don't know how long the virus can stay in sperm so if you're trying to get pregnant very soon it's something to look into. He HATES bug spray so I told him he either has to agree to wear it all the time or we cancel the wedding ;). He agreed and so with those precautions/context I'm not worried about it. If one of my guest was super worried and didn't want to come because of it, then I would completely understand.

@KeriT21 No I'm not worried about it and TBH it's only a major concern to ladies either looking to start a family quite soon or if you are already pregnant.  As this is now in alot of countries and quite often there are no symptons, I'm not going to worry or stress about something I can't control or prevent.  Maybe get them to read up on the web http://www.cdc.gov/z...bout/index.htmlif they haven't already done so.

@lynne1609 The blood test is a real in the arm - real deal but he is quick and it was the most painless experience I ever had getting blood drawn. Dont' worry!

 

For those wondering about shoes - I wore barefoot sandals, trust me you won't want shoes. Even the walkway that they put down is unsteady so better to be flat footed until the reception/cocktail hour when you're on solid ground.

    Congrats on your recent nuptials @victoriasalv! Can't wait to read the review and see pics.

    To those who asked, we are going barefoot for the beach ceremony and keeping sandals on hand for the reception.

    Getting nervous about all the comments on lighting, wow that's expensive!

    @TAWendy - do you have any pics you can share?

      Had my wedding there last Friday the 27 with 84 people. It was so perfect!! Better than I could have imagined.
      The salon did both hair and makeup on 10 of us the wedding day. We couldn't get over how great of a job they did! Sonia and Erika were both fantastic! (One other girl did hair too but I forget her name). There was champagne, juice, and a fruit tray brought in for us which was really nice.
      Ceremony at 5 on the beach, cocktail hour at Las Olas, and reception at the Foyer. Alejandra was so great! I met with her 2 days before and gave her tons of decorations to put out. She took notes and I also emailed her a picture of how I wanted the centerpieces set up. I was so impressed with everything. The whole thing went smoothly and ran on time even with that many people. Had the in house photographer- Ashley and Victor who were both great. The in house DJ was so awesome- we were up dancing the whole time. The servers and bartenders for the wedding and also the welcome party were fantastic and a lot of fun.
      I know it can be stressful waiting to hear back through email about questions and whatnot but they really know what they are doing- you are in good hands!
      Let me know if you have any questions and I can see if I can help. If you want to see pictures send me a message- there's a ton on my Facebook.

      @kathryn78 congratulations!!  Wow 84 people? That's a great turn out!  Did you have any issues with that many people whether for the wedding day or other days around the resort? I'm expecting 50 or so guests and was wondering how easy it would be to  meet up with people at the martini bar or pool. I'd love to see pictures!

        Yes it was a great turnout! We knew we wouldn't be able to be with everyone all the time. A lot of people did there own thing and excursions too. We usually hung out by the main pool so its easy to find there. Had a lot of fun there. The resort is set up so if you go to the main areas you will run into people. We did dinners with some different groups. Alejandra and another lady (forget her name) said to contact them if we want to have one group of 10 at dinner each night (had to be pretty much when the restaurants opened). We did that a couple nights. Also, on the Wednesday before the wedding we had a "Welcome party" cocktail hour at Oregano. Many nights a bunch of us would gather at the theatre or main plaza for the show and go from there. Did the best we could to spend a little time with everyone.

          @kathryn78 Gorgeous pictures, did you have the photographer as part of your wedding package or an external vendor?
