  1. I got married in June 2016. My ceremony was planned for the beach and then Plaza Zara's. Unfortunately it rained as soon as the ceremony completed so we had to rush and change everything to move into the ballroom. But as part of my package I had a free cocktail party at the Palapa Yoga and it was nice. Depending on the size of your group and time of day I would even consider making it a first choice. There is shade and in June that was a huge consideration and a great breeze from the ocean. Also as a side note to other brides, take advantage of the cocktail parties they have in the pkgs. surprisingly some of the best food I had all week. You won't be disappointed.

  3. Here are 2 I can dig more if you want. Keep in mind I did not plan for the ball room. So the decorations I had for the tables were all still outside (and got ruined) when the rain came. So this is even more bare than it could be I don't know how it works for The Mexican restaurant Do you get the whole place? Inside or outside? There isn't AC there either (if I remember correctly) just overhead fans. So if that's a consideration it might not be worth the 1000 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My wedding was in June and we planned an outdoor reception. It rained and we had to change venues last minute. We ended up in the ballroom. I will be quick to say it is not ideal. They do the best they can but it's a standard conference room. That being said, in my opinion it was worth it!! The AC was wonderful. Guests were dancing and laughing and being crazy and exactly what I wanted. I wonder looking back, if it was outdoors like I planned if it would've been too hot for all that dancing?? Guess I'll never know. The point is sometimes function wins over fashion. [emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Oh no!!!!!!!! That's awful! I can't imagine that it is really illegal! Does Katy know about this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. @@Sweetness14. I used Moments that Matter and really loved my pictures and video! I shopped around a good bit and I know there are a lot of great vendors in the area. For me, I was sold on the emotion I felt looking through their past wedding pictures (That's what I wanted for mine) and when I reached out how helpful and accommodating they were. I was kinda lost tbh about what time and what pictures and just about everything else in the planning process. But they helped me through all of that and pick a package that worked for me. At the time they offered specials to help offset Azul's crazy outside vendor fee. Not sure if they still do Every bride is different and wants slightly different things. I'd say take a few of these suggestions and google them and see how it works for you. Good luck! For decor- I thought the Lomas prices were insane!! Again this is a personal decision, but if you are ok with Real Touch flowers Katy has some nice ones. I ended up getting Lomas flowers because my mother insisted they were fresh (and she helped pay!). I had 7 small bouquets (6 bm + me) and 2 large bouquet for the gazebo. I used real touch for the boutineers-found some on Etsy. I must say the flowers were gorgeous, but if I was paying myself I think I would've rented them from Katy. I also rented mason jars from Katy and this + the BM bouquets were my centerpieces. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. We actually had a cousin sing (with background IPod music) while I was walking. They didn't question or hesitate with this. I know its a little different , but wanted to let you know Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. They didn't give us a list of guests room numbers but I had a little sheet where ppl could write down other numbers if they wanted. I put that in their welcome bags. It was a room to room cheat sheet They had to fill it out themselves though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have the following canvas totes left over from my wedding. Assorted colors. Will work great to use as the gift bag but probably not the gift itself. I have 35 and will sell them all for $10. (Obo) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. @@DestinationDelgado. We did always and forever and were married in the beach. We used Katy for most of the decorations and saved a ton of money! I was shocked how many things were not covered in the "free" package to be honest. But very well could have been bad assumptions on my part. The gazebo at the beach is included. But I was shocked to find if you want bows on the ceremony chairs you must pay for those in addition to chairs on the reception chairs. I didn't want to spend a lot on decor either and was happy with the few things I brought down and the 3 suitcases of stuff from Katy. If you have not yet consider looking at her FB page Love & Lace Wedding Decor. It's so easy and great prices. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Mine was on the beach. So they had to let me access it ha ha Ha. I am not sure the rules for the sky deck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. There was nothing formal. But about 30 min before our rehearsal dinner I had all the bridal party and parents meet and actually walk through how it was going to work. I needed this for my own sanity if nothing else ha. They knew who their partners were and we figured out what order they will go in. I made them actually do the walk so they saw the spacing and when and where to go. It seems like common sense but I was pretty nervous about it. The day of I told the girls to meet in my room at 11 AM. Photographer was coming at 1:30. Ceremony started at three. That whole time went by really really fast. Not much time for relaxing actually. The girls left to walk to the beach about 230 and me about 245-250 I was really freaked out about time bc I wasn't sure if there was enough music or when to start the bridal music. I'll be happy to share more details about that if you are interested. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
