    I think the private thing will most likely work itself out once guests notice that you’re having a wedding. I know I probably wouldn’t linger around if I saw that.

    Are the two areas connected? Could you have both be available to you? I personally do think the charm of a DW is having mostly everything outside, but it’s really up to you! It’s your wedding and your memories so go with your gut! 🙂

    denisi33:  Not to stress you out or anything but I just had a friend return from his trip to the Cancun Hard Rock for a show series and he said the construction going on was horrible. He & his wife waited to checkin for 2+ hours, then their locks didin’t work, waited in line another hour+, locks still didn’t work, waited in line again for over an hour. They ended up putting them up at another hotel down the street despite the fact that they were only there for the shows at the Hard Rock. He said he ended up calling corporate when he got home & apparently they gave him a free week at any of their other hotels… I would double check on the construction issue before deciding to do it outside vs inside- they both said is was super loud and were very disappointed with the whole experience there. Apparently construction was supposed to be finished months ago but they are not notifying guests that it’s still ongoing  (they got back just under a month ago from the trip). Wishing you luck- they are a bit of a complainer and tend to exaggerate a bit so it might not be as crazy as they told us… 

    Maybe your coordinator could take some up to date pics for you? Or even browse reviews/photos on tripadvisor by date to make sure?
