These are the chairs that they use for the ceremony
Here is a sample pic of a table set up for the reception. They just got in 100 new chair covers, and are now offering them for free of charge. As for the colour of sash you want, check with them.
Here is the wedding cake they make. I sent in a couple of pics of wedding cakes that I like and asked if they could make that instead. They are making the cake that I want at no extra cost, but depending on what you want, there could be an extra cost.
-You must be in the country for 2 days before you can be married
-Your date will be confirmed once the judges schedule is arranged. You will not receive your wedding time until you arrive at the resort. (Vow renewals don’t need the judge, so a date and time can be choosen without to much trouble)
-Day passes are $50 a person for anyone that is not staying at the resort.
-There is no deposit to book your wedding, and the final total will be paid at the resort.
