We want to do something like this, too. we have been looking at Cabins that are huge and have a pool and a hot tub. As far as activities, I plan to put my vacationing guests to work preparing for the ceremony. I figure we could check in on a Wednesday or Thursday. Check in is at 4pm. So that night’s probably just a mingle party night. Decorating the next day, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The wedding the next day, around the evening time. Check out is 11am the next day, so that’s the only problem I have. I might need one more day for breaking stuff down.

I think my family might be able to break it all down fast on the evening of the wedding, because we did a party for my brother and his wife at their club house, and after the party, the guests who were family had that thing broken down and put back together as if we’d never been there in about an hour and a half or less. I was completely amazed.

What Im concerned about is what the property will look like outside, what to do about insects. Because if the weather is warm enough to use the pool, we’ll need to do something about bugs. 


I think the best way to handle it is to choose a cabin with a lot of charm so decorating only needs to be minimal. I feel I have to plan it where we bring the least amount possible of things up there that have to be taken away. that’s gonna be a challenge. I wanted to do everything at the cabin, which means chairs and tables. So the smaller amount of guests the better.
