    Here are some pictures of my hair and makeup and one of my girls'  hair from the spa. My girls had very long hair and both had it put up in a curly side bun type style, this one one of them.

    Forgive my face in this shot, I was being a goof, lol:

    Letting the curls set while they did my makeup:

      So sorry to be flooding this with my posts, figured I'd get them all out while I have time!

       

      Here are our playlists for dinner and the dance, looking back I might have put a few more songs on each, we thought we had plenty and we did have enough but could have been safer with more

       

      Dinner started with our first dance song as we did that first before anything else so the photographer and videographer were still there for it:

       

       

       

       

      Dance:

            Great play list!  Did the ipod system have a charger?  My old ipod doesn't hold a charge long and would hate for it to die while in the middle of all the fun.  Also, with the reception on the beach did you get the dance floor or extra lights?  The dance floor rates are crazy expensive.  Right now I am still deciding on the Barcelo or Moon Palace and this would be so helpful to know!!! You looked beautiful, in the few photos I saw.  You are a great help to the newby planning.

              Hi! Thanks! and ask any questions you have, these forums sure helped me in my year of planning!!

               

              I am not sure but I think it charged it, it was basically a charger plug in cord that played through these massive speakers - as far as I know they do not have the new charger style doc (like all the new iPods and iPads with the little mini charger port). We did not do a dance floor because it is SOOO expensive and many people on here said they didn't use it and enjoyed the sand. They do have these bright lights on you and your reception area, as well as the trees wrapped in lights also. It was plenty bright for us. They also rake the sand and make it really nice so you aren't stepping on rocks or anything. Everyone had their shoes off, including me and it was so much fun, I wouldn't have liked dancing on a cold hard dance floor nearly as much, though the lighting part is cool we didn't think it was worth the extra $$.

                    The dance floor information is so helpful to know and help my budget.  I am still deciding on inside or outside wedding since we will have about 50 people, meaning a couple thousand dollar difference.  Was it hard to have people staying in different properties, same resort but not having access to the Palace area?  We are looking at a group rate for the Palace, which is reasonable but I didn't know if it would make a difference to offer a cheaper option for those that might want to stay longer at one of the other areas.  How did you get everyone from the airport to the hotel?  We have many guests who are not good travelers and I will have to arrange some transportation for them before the are "attacked" by the time share sellers & other transporation people at the Cancun airport.  They would be easy targets.  So many questions, but so super helpful!!!

                      We went with AirTransat, who I would NOT recommend booking a group with because it was a disaster! But the reason we went this way of booking, with a provider, was because flights, airport transportation and hotel and taxes were all in one package, no extra fees or supries. There is no way to not have the people at the airport accost you, we just told everyone to keep walking until they were outside where there was a bus waiting. Whether you do private van transport for your group or go with a travel providers bus transport your group will have to pass all the madness in the Cancun airport either way.

                       

                      We decided to offer two rates and everyone appreciated it and most actually booked the cheaper rate that was at the Colonial, and they all loved the hotel! We didn't have any issues at all with them staying at the Colonial and us at the Palace. The beach is HUGE and we always sort of sat in the same area as a group of whoever wanted to (between the Colonial and Palace). As for the lobby, which is what most say they like the best about the Palace, we prefer not to sit in air conditioning anyways so we never used our own Palace lobby bar because it was air conditioned and very loud most times. Something else we did was watch the night shows at the Colonial theatre because the Palace one is indoors and cold and we didn't enjoy it. If we did it again I would offer the two rates again because it worked out perfect for everyone. If there are people in the group who want to stay at the Palace and that is it then obviously there's an issue because the other guests can't access all the services there and hang out with them, but our group was great and no one minded hanging out where everyone could go. They do have premium alcohol at all the bars, if you are a Palace person you just ask for it by name and show your wrist band. We also had two people join us for dinner at the Brazilian restaurant (which colonial guests have to pay for) and they never charged them the $15 per person once we were there. The entire resort is beautiful, its not like if you walk to the Colonial its cheaper and therefore dirtier or anything, the whole complex is amazing and perhaps your guests would appreciate the option of being able to pay less if they wanted.

                       

                      Happy Planning!

                      Cheers!
