Has anybody out there let Banyan Bay do their wedding?
As a confirmed control freak, my gut clenches at the idea of letting someone else plan this event. However, I have since proven that I am in no way/shape/form qualified to plan said event either. Chappie said they did nice weddings BUT how would Chap know, bless his heart?

I got married at SunDiver and enjoyed it very much. They have a very nice beach for weddings. We actually got married on the pier. Here are some pictures if you would like to see them.

I hear the beach around Banyan Bay is in very bad shape and the seagrass emits a foul odor, so check into that before you decide to get married there. Nothing like a smelly beach to ruin a wedding!

Iraida at does a very good job of planning weddings on AC. She arranged everything for us.

OH! And I am also an admitted control freak. Getting married on AC was the best thing I ever did once I let go. No worries!! Wherever you get married, I'm sure it will be lovely!

TurnBurn71, is it true that the beach in front of Villas at Banyan Bay is in bad shape due to the sea grass? I ask because our family will be staying at Banyan Bay Next Week, at which point, I can provide a first-hand report, but what is its condition today? We were hoping not to have to travel too far from our room down the beach in order to find a nice spot to chill out.

Zee: Your worry is the same as mine. I don't know first-hand about the sea grass or beach condition. However, one poster in another thread about lodging posted that the sea grass in front of Banyan Bay smelled so bad it made her want to gag. Not good! We're staying at Mata Rocks next month, and I have heard the same about the beach in front of Mata. I sent an e-mail to Mata to inquire about this condition, and they have not sent a reply. (Of course, when I sent in my request for a reservation, I received a reply within a couple of hours.) I hope the rumor about the beach condition has been exaggerated!

It was me who gagged. I was there June 19-26. It was really bad, however I don't know if it might be a condition that could be cleared up by now, but if I were you, I would make sure before I planned my wedding there. Lots of

I think it was a condition, or at least, there were conditions a few weeks ago all over the coast. Masses of seaweeds in the surf and on shore rotting. Done now.
