But the costs jumped quite a bit (over 600) for us not to come with our group. Did any of you have your WC put the bags together? Was there an extra charge? Did it go smoothy? When we met with Yazmin during our site inspection she recomended a customs broker to insure our items didn't get caught up in customs...did any of you use a customs broker? I am totally overwhelmed by the travel aspect and the group contract. There are just so many people to coordinate and the costs are so high. Any advice We actually put together our bags before we left for Mexico and hand delivered them to whoever lived close. If they lived far or out of state I shipped them. This actually worked out really great. It amped my guests up for the trip. I was so happy I didn't have to lug them to Mexico too.

    Aventura Spa Palace Bride-to-be

    Welcome to the forum, spend some time reading the Aventura Spa Palace thread it will help answer all of those questions you have. I basically planned my whole wedding at ASP using this forum Good Luck!

I am going to be having dinner at one of the restaurants...any suggestions on which?? I did hear of one bride who chose the restaurant with a terrace and she said her reception was practically private without paying for a private one. I would love to do this!! Mundaca Steakhouse had a nice lower terrace for dinner reservations but by no means is it private they can seat people on the level with you, if its slow that night you could luck out. Also El Greco had a nice view with a outside terrace.

My reception dinner was held on the cover terrace it was a great location for me & my guests, I could not have picked a better location. I brought sour flip flops & gummy lobsters for the tables. I got them at a Hallmark Store.

First shot I have really seen at ASP where someone really took advantage of the great gardens. When I first booked Del Sol I booked them for 3 hours about 2 months before the wedding I added on another hours. So to answer your question 4 hours. Also in one shot there is a beautiful white flower centerpiece in a glass vase, Did you order those? They are wonderful. That was on the table with the food during my cocktail hours. Dulce added it, it was a suprise I had no idea it was going to be there. I had my cocktail hour on the cove side at the maraca terrace, great location for a small group, nice shade. I changed my coctail hour location the day before the wedding. I orginally had it booke onthe pandero terrace but it was just to hot to be on a terrace with no covering or shade. I belive those centerpices are what they line the aisle with when you get the diamond package. Congrats! You guys look so precious.Thank You! Oh Also? Did you hire an outside vendor to do your makeup or will they come to your room? I hired Fernando Fuentes

  12. Beautiful pictures, I just love Del Sol!!!
  13. Thought I would post my ASP Wedding Pic here too, along with my Del Sol review. Here is the link to my wedding slideshow, enjoy!: 05.25.10 Jacquelyn + Mark | Wedding at Aventura Spa Palace | Photos by Matt Adcock I have to say working with Del Sol Photography was a wonderful experience!!! From the very start of the whole process Del Sol was a pleasure to work with. Melissa in the Del Sol office was fantastic she answered all of my questions to the tee and in a timely manner. And trust me I had maannnyyy questions! I made sure to put Matt & Rodrigo from Del Sol on my guest list and I purchased day passes for them ahead of time to avoid any problems with them getting in. Everything went smoothly. Matt & Rodrigo worked their butts off to get the best shots that day. They were like stealth ninjas, moving quickly to get the shots and half the time I didn't even notice them. My guests did comment on how amazing it was that they were willing to get down and dirty in the HOT heat to make sure they captured the moment. Matt & Rodrigo were awesome and made my husband and I feel really comfortable. I received my wedding slideshow in less than a month of getting married. And I can't wait to see all the rest of my pictures when my DVD arrives. I highly recommend Del Sol Photography they rocked my socks off!
