My husband and I are going to CSS sept 16 thru the 23 for our 25th anniversary. Never been and very excited. How do we see about renewing our vowels? Any other suggestions for newbies?
Happy New Year!
Thanks a bunch!

if you booked through a travel agent, call them and they can set everything up for you. That's what we did =) we are renewing ours in March at CSA

If you call CSS they can explain what you will need to do your renewal of vows. you will need to send them a copy of your wedding certificate, and it will cost around 250 dollars which includes flowers, cake, wine, certificates and also the padre (who is not affiliated with couples so we gave him a donation to his parish. Take a look at the above link. but do call so you can get your paperwork to them. The rest was easy, once there you will meet with a wedding representative who will go over your options, we chose what was in the package and it was perfect, however we the photographer was so awesome we actually bought an album (and I don't spend money needlessly, I kept telling him the pictures included were fine til I saw them and had to have them. PS I am not photogenic!)
We had our vows at CN, which is off our CSS route but were thrilled with everything!
Best of luck and congratulations to you both! CSS is SO romantic and beautiful. you will meet many amazing people. Don't be afraid to hit the beach bar at night after the shows. We usually find the laughter goes on til after closing!
PS- explore the property, dont be afraid to go down paths, you never know what treasures you will find!

I would recommend you also purchase the DVD, they did a wonderful job and the affair was better than our wedding.
We will be at CTI in 9 days and also booked for Sept. 6th thru the 18th. We plan to visit CSS during our trip in Sept. and it would be a pleasure to meet you. We stayed at CSS in 2008 due to rennovations at CTI in 2008 and it was fantastic. You can not go wrong with any of the 4 resorts - we've been them all and unique in their own beautiful way.
If we be of further help, please do not hesitate to email us at DPanda617@aol.com
Congratulations on your VOWEL Renewal - LOL

My wife and I renewed our vows last year and the staff at CSS made it an amazing experience. Register for the renewal ceremony on the Couples website under the weddings & honeymoons. We did it at 4:30 on the beach. The photographer was great and the wedding coordinator at CSS is a complete sweetheart who made everything so special.
