    So...it smells but not bad enough to pay $20/per room?  Okay.  Besides building 1, were there any other buildings to avoid?

    Well we were in building 2.. I think it was buildings 1-3 that had the odor. It's actually the grounds around those buildings because its near what they call the " lagoon" but more of a swamp lol It's not terrible . Would I ask to be moved from there just because we're on vacation and spent a lot of money to enjoy our time yes. But again, it's not unbearable just unpleasent in those areas as you walk past.

      Yeah.. I don't want to scare anybody I'm sure plenty of brides weren't bothered by it or just ignored it. I wouldn't change my wedding resort for this because I do love everything else about it but it is a bit annoying to think about it lol hopefully they take care of the problems soon!

          Sure no problem! Ok so now I'm having a problemo.. My plan was to have my fianc© in a suit and the groomsmen in the same color pants and just a white shirt. Well , we bought the suit but cannot find matching pants!!' The color is called taupe I believe , it's like a mix between tan and grey but it's like impossible to find a matching pant. Every color is a tad different in the shade. Is it going to be weird if my fianc© wears his suit and the guys just get a color as close as I can find to the suit color?

              i think it would look quite nice and he will stand out from the grooms men which is what you want to happen.  We were fortunate to have the pants in the same colour as the suit but if they didnt have them I would have been more than happy to have the groomsmen in a few shades different.

                For past brides who brought lots of extra stuff down with them in their suitcase (OOT bags, OOT bag contents, decor, etc) what did you say you had in tow when you went through customs??? With most of my travel experiences, I've realized that the less you say the better, but I'd hate to get searched and have to pay taxes and/or fines on these contents if I don't declare them!! If a bride is bringing down a large amount of anything, should we be declaring it at customs and how much (in value) are we allowed to bring into the country?? I'd say I'm bringing less than the average Jade bride, however things add up $$ quickly. I've read about brides splitting the content between all suitcases and getting the bridal party to help out too,but how much can each person bring and be safe?? Also are receipts needs for any of the bulk purchases?? Any info would help :) Heather
