I got married there in April 2005. It was a wonderful experience...the staff, especially our wedding coordinator, really went out of their way to accomodate everyone's needs.

The first thing you need to think about is whether you're going to have a legal ceremony or a religious one... the religious one is not a recognized, legal marriage; rather, it's just a ceremony. If you decide to go the legal route, as we did, you'll need to determine what documents, blood tests, etc. are required and in the case of some of the paperwork, provide it to the wedding coordinator prior to your arrival. Also, you'll have to be on premises at least three full business days prior to the wedding.

You'll also have to decide in which of the restaurants you wish to have your reception dinner and advise your wedding coordinator a month or so prior to the wedding.

All the other details, such as the actual location of the wedding, flowers, cake, etc. will be finalized when you get to the resort and meet with the coordinator.

Hope this helps. If you have any questions, please ask!

I was married at the Lindo in May 2006. I thought we had a lovely wedding in the gazebo located between some of the buildings. The other location choices are the gazebo above the wave pool or the beach. We opted for the gazebo between the buildings as it was the most private and quiet. I originally wanted to marry on the beach but found the gawkers too intrusive for my taste. We did however go to the beach after the ceremony to take pictures, which were beautiful.

Overall the wedding coordinators were good, Lizzette was helpful and although I was worried at times that things I wanted were lost in translation, everything turned out the way I wanted.

One thing I would recommend is mixing your own CD for the music during the ceremony. One for the walk down the aisle, one for directly after the ceremony...and my husband and I also had our first dance after the ceremony rather than doing it in the Lobby bar.

Also I recommend the 2 layer strawberry cheesecake wedding cake. It was fab, and they decorate it with the flowers of the bride's bouquet. If anyone has questions, or wish to see pictures, shoot me an email at Njohns7@luc.edu. Good luck!
