I'm taking my centerpieces, welcome bags, table runners, chair sashes, basically everything for the reception. I started packing yesterday and I'll probably end up with 3 suitcases when its all said and done!!

@@Jahanee Conner that is a lot of stuff to be taking down, I am super impressed that you fit it in 3 suitcases! Are you planning on doing hair/makeup at the spa there?

I reserved the bridal suite for four hours and planned on letting them do my make up. But my sister is actually going to to my hair.

Hello Ladies:

 

Quick question, did any one who already had their wedding decorate the gazebo on the beach? I am trying to decide how best to decorate and want to put a bouquet of flowers on one of the poles for the gazebo. Does anyone know how much that costs? I am also going to be hanging vases on the back portion of the gazebo with tea lights in them, do you think that they will charge for this? Thanks.

@@MrandMrsBonitto2016 For the most part everything turned out great!! We had a little situation with the room situation (preferred vs regular). I had Yeomandry for a wedding coordinator and she did everything perfectly!! She was great to work with. I showed her how I wanted everything set up and she delivered. We also used WBA and my pics and video turned out great. I wish I would've gotten the photographer during the reception because the groom and about 30 of our guests jumped in the pool at the end of the reception. 

Our wedding was on the beach at 4 pm and it was perfect. We had a nice breeze from the ocean. Our reception was a little muggy by the pool, hence why everyone wanted to jump in the pool by the end of the night.

I also used Dj Mannia for my dj services and I have to say I was a little disappointed. He didn't have any up to date music but what we used for the bridal party entrance and songs for the dances. And even when he tried to google some songs the internet wasn't working properly. At some point we just used the music off of our guests phone and just told him to play off their playlist for the remainder of the night. I almost feel like I should've either went with the resort DJ or rented the sound system. But nevertheless, we still enjoyed ourselves.

Does anyone have any recommendations on food for the reception?  I am doing the Now to Eternity package which has the silver menu and not sure what to pick for food.  Thank!

Would you recommend preferred? I think that is what all of our guests are doing. Also what menu did you do and how was the food?

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
