If luggage goes straight through you should be ok. If you have to physically collect your luggage and then re check it then I'd ship it ahead of time. I've found that Delta is pretty good with ensuring luggage is protected. 

Yeah I will check on that!

However I loved it there! And that's probably why I ended up on this forum...I saw the title and am having total venue envy of you lucky ladies. hahaha. I can't wait to see when you all post photos afterwards.

Oh boo, but having lots of loved ones who want to celebrate you is a good problem! I'm sure your wedding will be beautiful!!! Where did you end up going to instead?

I tried to push back on that since it's crazy but they told me they can't do anything about the price since it's an outside company who comes in to build it. We are having around 40 guests and for everything (flowers, dance floor, chivari chair upgrade, cupcake upgrade, welcome bonfire, DJ, steel drum band, vendor fees + day pass for the outside photographers, extra costs for the guests over 20, etc.) it is about $12k.

     

    Thats really good to hear that you're planning process was easy! you're wedding is right around the corner! i know you're super excited!!!!

      Just returned from my Wedding at Secrets Wild Orchid! Ladies..you have nothing to worry about it was FANTASTIC. In the planning stages, you can get kind of caught up in details and worried but they take care of everything, trust me! When we arrived we were upgraded to the Preferred Club for free and they took extra care of us all week. I just got back yesterday and already have a few sneak peeks from the photographer. My sister also did a trash the dress the next day. Here is a link to our photographer's sneak peek (Kyle + Kristen) and I'll try and attach a personal photo or two that some guests took :). Any questions I am happy to help!?

          Looks beautiful!! Those pictures are great!  I'm glad to hear everything went well for you guys  and that you were taken care of!  So it looks like you used the Beach Casita for the ceremony and reception?  How did you like it?  I can't decide whether to use the casita or have a set up on the beach.  Also, did you need to get a dance floor for the reception?

                Clayton was awesome to work with..he takes great photos and was very fun to work with :)...I chose him because I like his photojournalistic style :) There are others to choose from but WPA was more in our price range that Sungold was :)
