  1. My aunt bought sky lanterns and all the resorts say that they are prohibited. They are very strict about trashing the ocean. Also do not use fabric flower petals, all loose decor on the beach must be biodegradable.
  2. I'm not usually a negative person, but based on all the reviews on this post I had higher expectations for the wedding part of the resort. As a guest I liked the resort and I had a great time with my friends and family. As a bride I expected the Salon and photographer part to go smoother. I didn't feel like I got as much attention from Juan Carlos as the other brides. I had to call him multiple times to get a response. This is wedding season, maybe the fall and summer brides felt that their day went smoother. My guests had a blast and that is all that matters. The music issues were totally
  3. Just had my wedding last Saturday. I have a few comments on the service offered. Adventure Photos: Thank god I didn't use them for my ceremony. I booked them for a photo session with guests during a happy hour and they did not show up. I was told that we can try again the following day. I just reviewed the photos and a lot of the pictures were of bad angles using a bad lens. We all look so fat with double chins. The family members on the ends of the photos look even larger since he used a wide angle lens. Couples Dinner on the Beach: The food was over cooked and cold. We got bitten u
  4. How much time should I plan for hair and makeup the day of the wedding? I'm not sure what time to request appointments. Did anyone include clip in hair extensions in their wedding hairstyle? Were the stylists good? Did anyone specify a cake design? If they decorate the cake is this extra?
  5. Can anyone share their wedding day schedule with me? I'm not sure what time to schedule my salon appointments and how to plan the specifics of my reception.
  6. Did anyone bring their own music for the wedding prelude and processional? If so how long of a song do I need for 3 bridesmaids and groomsmen to walk from the Tequila Terrace to the Beach?
  7. I found some apps that turn your phone into a microphone. I think they work best when your use a bluetooth connection and keep some distance from your phone and speaker. Try Pocket MIC, DaMIC, PaMic, and Microphone Amplifier. Good Luck
  8. Did anyone bring an AMP or microphone? I was planning on bringing a bluetooth speaker but I was wondering if I needed a MIC for speeches and announcements? For past brides: How hands on were the Wedding Planners during the event? Who made announcements to be seated for dinner or the cake cutting?
  9. Is anyone using a microphone for speeches with this Speaker?
  10. I looked at some brides pictures and it looked dark. Juan Carlos mentioned using Italian lights, but I still haven't seen any pictures of these. I was going to bring fairy lights and was told that it cost $150 per pole to rent poles to hang them to.
  11. Where did you buy the chair sashes and napkins? What was the vendors name on Etsy? Did you get charged $1 per chair for bringing your own chair sashes?
  12. Do you have any pictures of what the reception looked like at night? I was told that you can print your own Lanterns but you list bring all the bulbs and cords too. The price for setting up the lanterns is $100 and $150 for each pole that you rent. I am looking at buying LED Chinese lanterns from Oriental Trading Company.
  13. I was told that the outside vendor fee is for each vendor, but the photographer doesn't count as an outside vendor. Instead you must pay for a guest pass for your photographer and crew.
