    Yay Neen! How exciting a site visit! I think I must resist... afraid I'll start to micromanage... and that is the whole point of going to mexico (not!)

      OK Ladies.... Of you that have already gone to DT and still going.... who has had or planning to have a larger group We are planning to have around 50 attending... may be more or less but I am guessing right around there. How is DT accommodating a larger group for the reception?
      And for all of the brides that have been to DT, where would you suggest I host the reception for the best privacy/view?

        Can you specify which photographer you want from the resort photographers? Are the samples they send you from only one photographer?

          we're expecting somewhere between 75-100 ppl and we're having our reception at the Seaside Grill which is right on the beach and has a great view of the ocean. the only downside, well there are actually 2 - firstly, its right next to one of the pools so its not totally private (though the rest will be closed for our group), and secondly, the reception cannot begin until 6:30pm because they won't close it down to everyone else until 5pm and then they need time to set up.

          We're trying to figure out what to do with all our guests between our ceremony (which should be over by 4:45 latest) and the start of the reception dinner...thinking we have a really long cocktail "hour"? Any other ideas?

            The sample slide show I got from a photographer there named Rob was a compilation of work from all of the photographers. It sounds like they just book one and you do not really have a choice of which you get.

              That sounds good to me... like someone else said, I could have my reception in a ballroom anywhere! Are you having music/DJ or just going to the disco? I am so excited for you!!!

              Long happy hour would be great! It would be neat if you could somehow engage them in their own photo session... like they'd take pics of their families, friends.... for your scrap book? You might get some hams and end up with cool photos. I don't know how you could get the word out. Just an idea... camera + cocktails + time = kickass photos? Maybe.

                You can still do it at any restaurant but can only reserve Seaside Grill and El Patio for a private reception (and the convention center of course), so at any other restaurant you would be with other restaurant guests.

                I would just let your guests do what they want during that time, they can head over to the sugar reef bar or something. I personally wouldn't bother paying for a cocktail hour, considering it's an all-inclusive resort.

                  i'd feel bad though, with everyone all dressed up and nowhere to go for two hours following our ceremony...we'll give it some thought. we definitely want a big shot and some of the girls getting married at the Paradisus are having a pinata during cocktail to keep folks entertained. no sure that'll be our guests thing, but thinking about it...

                  we are having a DJ for our reception and then when we have to wrap up at 10:30, I'm guessing most folks will head over to disco to continue the party...

                    Thanks Amy! All the photos during the slide show were beautiful so i guess you just hope for the best. Your big day is fast approaching. Are you getting excited? i would be so nervous but excited!!
