She just responded. She stated there was someone with a wedding just before us!! And that they do 4 to 5 weddings a day!! YIKES!!!! That was the main reason we choose a Wednesday over a Saturday. ( We are in the process of booking Jamie Dimitry. )

and habe some pics taken before the ceremony? And i was told they have up to 5-6lee's weddings a day but only have one at a time. I believe they have set times to pick from during the day starting at 11the so first come basis. If ur going to be down there at a busy time of the year any day is busy...but regardless the pictures should be beautiful!
I apologize...after i posted that i realized that may be referring to Dreams Palm Beach...we were looking at both resorts and i cant remember which WC said that.
We are going to do a first look before the ceremony so hopefully we'll get lots of great shots then. Jamie also mentioned we could do family pics before the wedding.. Hoping it all goes well. I've requested the WC let me know if 5:00 becomes available. I just want to make sure we have planty of time for pictures without missing our dinner and guests.

It didn't feel very good to hear these things since I was so excited. I may have even shed a tear or two. BUT, since the plan has been in motion for about 3-4 months now, they are really starting to come around and become part of the excitement! His mom called me the other day to tell me that her dental hygienist's daughter got married at ME, and it was the most beautiful resort she's ever seen and that the wedding was amazing and everyone there had the best time ever! Thank goodness!!! :-) Parents can be traditional and sometimes need a little time to marinate on an idea!
That's great that they came around! I had the exact same problem before, and it made me soo mad and sad at the same time. But everyone is also starting to come around to the idea and actually be happy for us and a tropical location. )
