    Also wild orchid and st james are basically one resort so you can give your guests the option to stay at either! I am staying at wild orchid cause its newer and closer to restaurants but I have guests staying at both!

I am now all booked and confirmed for a sunset wedding at Secrets St James/Wild Orchid on March 13th, 2013!! Any questions you have about weddings/resorts, let me know I have been there for a wedding 2 months ago and have been in contact with the WC. I have a lot of information from her and she responds pretty quickly and in a friendly matter! I was originally booked at the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall but changed to Secrets after visiting (plus there is almost nothing including in the weddings at the Iberostar!). I have lots of pics and information so anything you would like, send me a private message and I will give you my email, it is probably easier that way!...Do you have a photographer yet? I booked an amazing one and am very excited now that it is all booked and confirmed!! :)

    I was also almost 100% positive on booking with Iberostar as well, and have recently decided to go with Secrets, wild orchid (most likely). They do include more in their packages than iberostar did, but I kind of feel like anything extra you add on is really expensive. Some of the stuff we can definitely do without, or I can bring my own, I'm hoping. I keep reminding myself that this is supposed to be a simple wedding, but Ikeep finding too many ideas on this website!!!

        Does anyone know who the resort photographer is? I am trying to decide if I want to hire an outside photographer or not!

          I am definitely getting an outside photographer. I am still in the process of picking a place, but im pretty sure this is it. Im not looking for anything extravagant. Does anyone know if you can just pick and choose things instead of doing a package? Theres some things on there I don't care for, or if you know if they credit you for want you don't want (like extra boutonnieres and corsages).

          So glad to hear I made a good decision on switching from Iberostar to Secrets!! I'm super excited to get more planning underway!! When is your big day? Are you bringing in any outside vendors? I'd love to hear more about your wedding!
