    This is for those of you that have married at DT. I know you have to be there so many days before the civil wedding ceremony. Were you able to count the day you arrived as well as the day of your wedding? Soon enough we'll be able to actually start booking our trip and want to figure out what day we should arrive. Thank you for your help.

      you are not suppose to count the day you arrive, only the day of your wedding. The weekends don't count either. So if you arrive friday, saturday or sunday you can't get married until thursday. If you arrive Monday you can't get married until friday etc.

      But for me they made an exception and counted the day I arrived, because I arrived adn left on a thursday, and if they didn't count my arrival day then I would have had to wait until wednesday, the day before leaving!

      When I asked about other dates though they were being strict about the 4 day rule, so I was really surprised when in the end they said sure no problem!

          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.
          Soontobeamrs - you asked if folks were having 50+, I'm having abt 70-80 ppl at my wedding, sounds like that shouldn't be a problem. When I visited recently there was an 80+ person wedding, the guests all enjoyed it tremendously (I asked!). That was actually the first wedding they had in the ballroom, apprently some kinks to be worked out (dance floor-wise), but all was good by the time the wedding happened.

          I'm having the rehearsal dinner at the seaside grill, and the wedding reception in the ballroom. I went in there when i visited, and it's a bit, well, bare, but suspect it looks good with all the tablecloths, lights, tulle to split the room, etc. Some guests at the wedding suggested adding more flowers to make it look nicer. There's a stage, which will look good for our tango (!) but perhaps a bit bare during dinner... like it needs a band? dunno...

          Some thoughts: the beach is rocky, The guests I talked to suggested warning people to bring water shoes. I need to get a welcome email written and sent out that includes that... ack. Also warn them that it's a trek from the airport - those guests who weren't warned weren't pleased. Those who knew expected it, so that made the ride easier. I'm telling folks who can afford it to book a private shuttle...maybe I should try to organize something, but not sure yet. So much to do! I also want to arrange a trip to the ruins for the guests on friday day - if anyone's done that, let me know. (tour guide, van company, etc.) Some of the guests for the other wedding barely knew the ruins were there, and since the resport no longer does the bike trips to the ruins b/c of the construction on the road I'd like to get my guests over to see them.

          If anyone out there has any email/welcome note/anything they used do pm it over! Would be good to see what others have used. Ok, I should get going here... scary how much I haven't done yet.

              You'll be fine!! No stressing!! I may have that many people too... don't know yet. Let me know what you think of the ballroom when you get back- I'd love to see pics of it decorated. SO you are having a DJ I am assuming? What time are you entertaining until? Do they have a seperate price list for the ball room? Sorry to bombard you! Thank you for the info~

                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...
                Neen: Can you have your ceremony an hour later? Or do you need that time for pics? If your guests are staying there, they can always go back to their room or to the bar like Sunbride said. It's not like a traditional wedding where you have to worry about them roaming around time with no place to go. I heard that someone had the mariachi band play durning that time and a happy hour- just another option if you are nervous about it. It'll be perfect I'm sure... you two are such a cute couple!

                    I'll absolutely send pics - Sandra and Landy promised to send me some, but haven't gotten them yet. I am having a DJ, but haven't confirmed yet... the fiance is supposed to be dealing with that one... They told me I could go as late as I like, with an extra fee (don't know what that is yet) as long as I have it in ballroom - which is one reason to have it there. No separate price list from what I saw - not sure for what? You mean to decorate it or just to book the rooms?

                      Yeah, I just didnt know if there was a charge to rent the ballroom... something that is nice to know. Also, The covered entrance to the ballroom looks pretty big... could you do a toast out there or anything?
