That sounds good. I read that there was no private music or dancing allowed at Cocotal so I just wasn't sure how that would go. Will the resort announce you as you go into dinner, or for your private party?
I probably sound like a nut, but I just really want to make sure those small details work out! I think your idea with the beach reception makes perfect sense.... after dinner any of the older follks who wouldn't be comfortable standing would be able to go back to their room or decide not to join us, and the rest of us would be standing so that would encourage dancing anyway!
I'm sure between all my friends they could handle DJ'ing with an ipod. Now that I think of it, I have one who stands out as a an exceptional choice for that haha.
I've only been talking to Sarah from Beach Bum so far (I haven't technically even committed to my date yet, as I wanted to be sure that these things would work out the way I hoped before I committed!) but she has been forwarding me e-mails from Valeria. It says that I would be working with both her and a different on-site coordinator when we get there.
Thanks so much girls... I think my vision is coming together... more importantly, I think I can still accomplish one of the big goals of a DW for us (to spend WAY less $$!) and still make sure that I don't miss out on the classic wedding day moments!! :-) :-)

We will have the resort announce us (and still hoping the cold fireworks can be used for this) and having our friend Di with his iPad. I gave him the songs that are a must (first dance, father daughter etc). But a priatr party on the beach is where we will be dancing. I cant walk in heels so its cery fitting for me to be barefoot in the sand :-)
Just like Allie said there are no rules with this. You make it what you want. I'm having the photographer for 5 ish hours and getting a ton of disposable cameras for our guests to use to capture the fun.
