The women are absolutely wonderful and were very calming. Laurie came to our house and set up the day of. She used photo perfect makeup for pictures and made sure my hair was PERFECT. Even did a run through beforehand. I also had my hair done for the rehearsal dinner and it was very inexpensive. Wonderful group!!

We used a local shop on Edgewater. Everyone in there is very helpful and has lots of experience in writing invitations both informal and formal. We got all of our invitations there including bachelorette, showers, bridesmaids luncheon and rehearsal dinner. They have a great variety!!!
The location is beautiful and the amenities are very comfortable. We had our own private lagoon that we shared with a few other rooms, but never saw anyone else out there. The food was less than adequate and we were overall dissapointed by it. The best places to eat are: The crepe place, the Japanese place at the other hotel, and La Toc. You are able to go to any of the other hotels on the island (2 other sandals spots) to eat or hang out during the day, but we saw that many people came to ours because it is the biggest. They had many nightly events including fire limbo dancers which was very entertaining. Just make sure your room is far away from the party area! We did one excursion which was zip lining and that was INCREDIBLE--I don't like heights and I absolutely loved it!!!

Susie Weis is an incredible coordinator! She has done all types of weddings from small to large. She has lots of experience with vendors and was very organized. She made sure everything happened on time and we got everything we wanted from all our vendors.

Solutions has a great variety of dresses to choose from. All colors and price ranges and types of dresses! Their staff is incredible and helped us a great deal throughout the entire process. I even got dresses there for my rehearsal dinner and bridal showers.
They have gorgeous dresses and outstanding staff, but their alterations people left something to be desired. I had to have final fittings at least 3 times in week before the wedding because their alterations people would forget to do something or do it wrong. My dress was perfect in the end and they had all kinds of accessories to choose from.
The cake was beautiful and their decorator did an exact replica of the lace on my dress all over the cake. It was the best tasting cake we tried, and we tried cakes from at least 5 bakeries in town. Everyone else's frosting was chewy and the cake was dry. Publix's cake was moist and the icing absolutely delicious!! They had multiple fillings they were able to use as well.

Ted is the event coordinator at the Country Club. It is a beautiful spot, that looks over the green with fountains and terraces outside. The ballroom is gorgeous and with the right candlelight, is extremely romantic. They did specialty drinks for our cocktail hour and set up multiple stations for the dinner service. Ted has worked with plenty of great coordinators and took care of all the setup the day of. We were able to have multiple tastings, until we were happy with the end result. Overall, a great experience!

Lana is the owner of the floral shop. She specializes in events and is so easy to work with. She had multiple meetings with us and made many changes to make sure that we were happy. Her flowers are absolutely gorgeous and she can get her hands on absolutely anything (as long as it is seasonal). She even allowed me to come see all the flowers the Friday before the wedding.

Jeff and his wife Kathleen are two of the nicest people I have ever met. Jeff takes beautiful photos and has a great eye for creativity. I loved all our pictures and the album that we ended up with is breathtaking. He uses a form of positioning the pictures called, "montage" which is very up to date and exciting.
My only frustration was the cost of individual pictures. They were very highly priced, although they were perfect.
