    Hello All,


    I'm getting married 6/15/15 at the Atlantis Resort. I would love to hear from some of the other Atlantis brides as far as planning, advice and the overall outcome of your weddings. I've only seen a couple of reviews on this site about planning but not many on the overall outcome.


    Right now our main concern is ensuring the reception isn't boring. Our wedding will be held on a Monday so unfortunately we won't be able to attend the Aura nightclub afterwards because it's closed on that day.


    Anyone have any ideas, suggestions, want to share your stories? Any advice or pictures would be extremely helpful.

        We got married in December and our photographer was from The Memory Factory. They specialize in destination wedding photography and event planning. I'm sure they can walk you through some ideas. Our pictures were gorgeous and he's very reasonable. We even used them for our welcome party. Email them with any questions or for a quote at thememoryfactory@hotmail.com

              Don't worry about Aura being closed!  The ceremony and reception with be a long day/evening.  Afterwards of my 55 guests about 15 were left standing at the end of a long open bar!  We just went into the casino, there is Dragons bar and lounge with music and small dance floor.

                Hi All,

                I'm a newbie considering Atlantis as well. We have a small number (maybe 35) and I was advised to do earlier in the day to avoid the heat and crowd.  I talked with Gigi, she seems really nice! Venue may be Ocean's Overlook, which is covered.    Then a reception luncheon.  We will probably just all get together later and go to the club I keep hearing about. The wedding will be on a Thursday.  I'm just worried about the cost to add decor to make it look pretty. Does anyone know if they let you bring anything of your own there (like decor).  I only have one Maid of Honor and of course a Best Man.  Intimate group...second wedding for both of us so simple and intimate is my motto. I did the 350 guest wedding before and well....we see how that turned out!!HAHAHAH.  Any advise is appreciated!

                  As far as bringing things for the wedding/reception....yes, you can bring stuff to decorate.  Remember, this will take up quite a bit of space in your luggage.  I insisted on carrying any of the wedding stuff in my carry on as well, for fear of getting lost or damaged. 

                  If you are able to do a site visit prior to your actual trip for the wedding, bring stuff with you to keep with your wedding coordinator.

                  note, I brought several items to set up on the "welcome table"....(table assignment cards, tray to fill with sand, a box for cards) I was charged $50 by wildflowers for "set-up"

                  my wedding coordinator took car of setting out some other items, this fans on each chair, and "mad libs" cards at each table setting.....
