@Jc14 no problem! I'm so happy to help. I think I had questions up until we left, but I think that's just the way it goes with destination weddings - thank goodness for this forum!!!
1. We were in 3000 (3131 actually, right at the end). Several of our guests were in the 2000 building though. Both are next to the beach, but 3000 is next to the pool too.
2. I wish I could remember, but I don't know the name of the buffet. Looking at the website now, I *think* it's this one: http://www.palladium...ife-restaurant/
I'm pretty sure this is the one where we had ours, and was our general go-to because it was in our section: http://www.palladium...ue-restaurant/
3. No, they didn't come (they're usually with the weddings on the day, and there was a wedding pretty much every day while we were there). My cousins were our photographers though (they have their own studio) and since they work so many weddings they helped us work it all out.
ACTUALLY, that's my one kinda regret from the wedding. I run events for my profession, so I kinda felt like I was working a job on my wedding day. If you can delegate someone to be your time keeper, I would definitely suggest that!
4. The line is only long(ish) for the reservations. But seriously. The bacon wrapped bananas. I'm drooling a little just thinking of them (someone get a picture of them for me, PLEASE!).
5. The lobby bar is great. Great location, live entertainment (although... we took over the lobby on our last night, we had 70+ people watching the Habs playoff game on a laptop, the entertainment crew gave up on trying to sing until after the game. It was AMAZING). The pool bar closes a bit earlier. For us, our plane was delayed on the way down, so while we were going to do cocktails before dinner the first night, it didn't work out, and after dinner everyone went their own way. I'd suggest if you have a change of plans, announce it on the bus on the way to the hotel before you all get your room keys and everything. The hotel will also provide you with a list of all your guests, their rooms, and their extensions in case you need to reach them (super handy). In our case there were a few rooms switches too, but that was all worked out by day 2.
6. The sports bar wasn't the most exciting one - sadly they didn't have the Montreal games. It was indoors though, which was good for those with mosquito bites.
