    I am also getting married on October 6th but at the Coral Beach... isn't that right infront of the Coral Grill? I wonder if that is why they wouldn't allow you to book at the Coral Grill and not because it was going to cost $10,000.

    lol....I'm getting married October 6, 2012 I asked for the Coral Grill and I was told it wasn't an option unless I wanted to pay $10,000. I'm jealous! They put me at the Palace Pool! The one thing I cannot stand is how inconsistent they are there. I'm FRUSTRATED!!

      Yay!! DATE TWINS!!! I'm not sure what the reason is/was....I've since moved on and I'm focsuing on the next steps (they placed us at the Palace Pool area.) I'm sure its gonna be perfect!! What time and where is your ceremony? We are 6:00 at the Gazebo. How big do you think your crowd is gonna be? How far along are in in the planning (I feel like I'm way behind and I haven't heard from my WC in a month) I know I am full of questions....I think we have picked a busy day to have a Wedding there. I hear that sometimes they have up to 6 weddings a day, and I strongly suspect that our wedding day may be like that!! Needless to say I am so excited, hopefully we will run into one another and we can toast one another on our future Marriage and all the hard work we both have done to make these weddings happen! Congrats to you and Happy Planning!

        Has anyone used the resort DJ?  We are getting married on October 20th at Playa Azul and I'm trying to decide whether or not it is truly worth it to get a DJ or just load up an ipod.  I'm also wondering whether or not we really need a dance floor.    Any thoughts/opinions are welcome!

          We had our reception at Playa Azul also (LOVED IT!) and did not use a DJ or dance floor and we have absolutely no regrets.

          Absolutely eveyone loved dancing barefoot in the sand, it was so awesome and how often do you go to a wedding and get to do that?

          We used an iPod, and it was just perfect for us. It hooks right in to their sound system and the provide a microphone. My advice would be to ensure you have your different playlists made out in advance (first dances, dinner music, cake cutting songs, garter toss song, last song of the night), make sure shuffle is turned off/disabled on the iPod, and if you like designate a guest to be emcee. We had one guest who introduced us, turned down music for speeches, changed the playlists etc.

            exactly my thoughts! no need for the DJ

            1. Lay out your playlists
            2. Create a guide for your emcee to follow
            3. Designate one person to work the ipod when needed.

             

            enjoy!

                    Thinking about doing a sand ceremony. For this who have done it, how did you go about planning? I love the idea of using a picture frame to collect sand from our guests. Any thoughts or past experiences are appreciated!
