pics of other ceremony locations?

Does anyone have pics of "wedding beach terrace", or "lakeside terrace"? I was just told that these are possible ceremony sites at the swan/dolphin.

What is the max # of guests for Ceremony and Reception locations for Swan/Dolphin? My DH thinks this may be more affordable for us than DFTW and we may not be as restricted too(I know There are elements I woul like that DFTW offers that Swan/Dolphin doesn't) since we may have several guests staying at more affordable hotels or rent vacation homes(we also have a few who live a couple hours away that might just want to get home early Sunday instead of having to stay an extra day or so. Anyone have any advice for Swan-Dolphin that might be helpful, thank you.

I have to say that when I was working with Just Marry I didn't have any problems during the planning process.
Thats an awesome idea...the Fulton Crab House!
Have you done this yet? Pictures??
ANyone else?

I am getting quotes on Swan/Dolphin now... so checking out all the options

I worked with JM this past spring and my wedding coordinator was fabulous as well as my wedding. I will continue to refer people to JustMarry! b/c they are reputable and will work with you to make sure everything is perfect.

I work along side the industry and know first hand that there are things that coordinators/planners cannot control (photography coming out bad or catering turning out wrong) these types of instances are not the planning companies fault, it is the vendors you choose - so choose wisely!

Also, know that if a hotel is referring a particular vendor it is b/c they are trusted as the best professional out there. If JM wasn't of this calibre - over 170+ brides wouldn't have used them and are continuing to do so.

Again, I cannot say enough good things about JM - my advice to you is try not to believe everything you read on these boards and stay positive!

Happy Planning!
This user has only posted ONE post here? hmmmmm...??? Hello Brides! Hope all is well with you all I realize that my experience has cause several of you to be cautious, I don't consider that to be a bad thing. Just Marry was great during planning but horribly failed me just prior to and DURING my wedding. (the proof is in my pictures) I would TRULY hate for anyone to go through what I did. A fellow Disboarder recently had an absolutely GORGEOUS wedding at the S/D & did not use JM. Follow your instinct & be careful! It is very difficult to plan a wedding when your miles away. Best of luck to you all and feel free to message me if I can help

For those of you who had a S/D wedding:

I would love to know how much money you spent in total & (in general) what you had??

Thanks!

has anyone got pictures of the ceremony on the beach (its going to be just the two of us!)

anyone with pictures of the beach in general? (i'll go over and have a look at the accomodation forum too)

but MOST IMPORTANTLY - were planning a december wedding - so is it more likely we'll be told to hold the ceremony inside? This would be the main decider - if there is a chance I cant have it on the beach then I just wont bother looking further into it.

how close is this s/d to downtown disney - within walking distance - in a big dress (I hear alot of you talking about fultons, but i'm thinking more Portobello)

also, if we go to a resturant in downtown, obviously were too small to have a whole private dining room to ourselves - so do you think they just stick us with all the rest of the diners? (that doesnt bother me, i'm just wondering?)

I wouldn't think you'd have to be worried about having to have an indoor venue in December. We are getting married in December at the S/D at Crescent Terrace & our friends got married there last December & it went fine. Of course there is always the possibility of rain, but you risk that any time of year in Florida.

Downtown Disney is NOT walking distance to the S/D-you would need to drive or take Disney transportation (bus) there. The S/D is located walking distance to Disney's Boardwalk area and there are a few restaurant choices there, as well as walking distance to Hollywood Studios & Epcot's World Showcase.

I really enjoy reading about peoples Disney Weddings and experiences with Disney Weddings-it's always been a fantasy of mine. And I love the idea of an intimate wedding at S/D!
Does anyone have pictures of the available sites the day of their wedding? The sites themselves are pretty much blank canvases, so I'd love to see how they worked their magic and see how it looked after it was decorated!

I haven't had my VR yet - it is next May but I have this picture of the West Courtyard set up for a small wedding. I am only having a small VR (14 guests) and this will be perfect for me!! I think it is beautiful!!
I will be having the cake table (far right) moved a bit further away and covered in white linen. I also am not having the orange cake!! I have arranged my own cake.
I am heavily into planning my VR with Karen from JM now and if I can help you with anything, don't hesitate to contact me!!
I also wanted to say that despite some negative feedback on this board, I have had nothing short of excellent service from Just Marry so far. I know I haven't had my VR yet, but Karen and I have get on famously via e-mail and she has always answered my e-mails/questions/concerns very promptly. She has even agreed to stay on (I think sometimes the co-ordinators switch once the booking process is over) and see me right through my big day!!!

Karen is who I am corresponding with also and we hope to have a wedding with a similar set up to the above picture followed by a meal at Shulas as we are steak lovers.

We might have a dessert party in epcot in the evening but if that doesn't work out as there any bars or clubs to hang out in around that area. Would be a thursday night. Don't really want the night to end at about 8pm. We would change to casual dress obviously.

Hi KimviG
I suspect the prices on page 1 may be a little out of date. It's hard for me to say as I didn't follow a package but 'cherry picked' what I wanted from the package and arranged other things myself.
My VR is in May and for the Swan part of it I am paying around $2,200.00.
This includes site (West Courtyard) including seating and set up, water station set up for guests nearby, services of Karen, my planner to co-ordinate and book things etc and oversee on the day, a backup venue in case of rain, use of a hospitality room for freshening up on the day (if I need it),two bottles of champagne, one bottle of sparkling cider, five bottles of orange juice, the services of two Swan employees to pour and serve drinks for the toast and cut and serve the cake and all silverware, glassware and flatware.
Things I have arranged myself with outside vendors are floral, cake, officiant, photographer and harpist. Limousines are being arranged by Karen but are on a seperate contract as at the time of signing my contract I wasn't sure what I wanted.
You need not be tied into a package but can have as little or as much as you want. Contact JustMarry. They are always so helpful and Karen is an angel!!!
Good luck
