    Thanks Shannon, I just assumed that if they wouldn't accomodate that many people for a restaurant for a wedding, that they wouldn't do it for a welcome dinner either. I just sent an email to my wedding planner, so hopefully she'll give me some advice.

    Thanks!!

      Keep us posted lexibride on what your wedding planner says. We were thinking of having everyone meet at the buffet. We are expecting around 30 people so having a sit down dinner will be like have two reception dinners. Arh.

        Thanks Kriswim :) we are going to Playa this November and on one of the nights we go out my finace suggested I wear heels and we go walk on the beach to see lol I am glad it worked for you I also love the look and feel of heels

          I plan on getting monogrammed towels for everyone. I will ask the front desk to put them in each room as the guests arrive.

            Hello ladies!

            It's been awhile since i've been on here - just catching up on postings.

            Tightwhitey and Kriswim - congrats on your wedding!

            Tightywhitey, your photos are so amazing! We also booked Elizabeth Medina. She is just awsome!

            Also - welcome to all the noobies on the board - the 2010 ladies!

            Question - is anyone planning on shipping down items for the wedding? I heard it's not recommended because shipments sometimes get lost - but i'm just trying to figure out how I am going to manage all of the favors and my dress! argh!

              Hi Dcheung I live in Branford CT! Congrats on your very soon to be here wedding.

              I am still in the early stages of planning but I did do some research on shipping as well. Like you said a lot of people said stuff gets lost. Did you consider asking any family members or friends to maybe help you bring stuff down?

                  Congrats on your recent wedding! I've been reading a lot of your posts and you have answered so many of my questions! Thanks!

                  Quick question: I noticed that your wedding date was this July. I am thinking of our wedding for July or August 2010 because we're both teachers and have summers off. What was the weather like in July? Does this area of Mexico have a hurricane/rainy season that you have to worry about? Was it really hot? Should the time of the month effect my decision for a date?

                  Thanks so much for your help!
                  Yes it was hot...I enjoyed it, but a few of my larger guests had a problem with the heat. As you can tell my original date was May for that reason..but..well the swine flu happened and then I pushed it back to july as my mom and sister are teachers too.
                  I heard that June was the rainy season so I probably wouldn't book then.
                  With this all said...it was not unbearably hot...I enjoyed the heat. The pool was great to lounge in and everything around is air conditioned!

                    My wedding is 3 months away and now I think I am starting to confuse myself & over think things!

                    With the new packages (we are going with the Luxury) this does include the dinner for up to 35 people, correct? I don't have to pay additional for food??!!??

                      I am trying to figure out the same thing. Our gifts to all guests will be monogrammed beach towels. There is NO way I can fit 30+ beach towels in my luggage. The only option I know of is to have it shipped there a head of time. If anyone knows of a better way, please let us know.
