Dunno yet. We're having dinner at L'Hermitage, so it will depend on the table set ups. But it will be something simple - like a single pink anthurium with some baby's breath or something along those lines - the tables aren't that big.

Outside for the cocktails and dancing, I've got no idea. I'm actually considering just a bottle of champagne in a nice ice bucket, with a few flower petals on the table. Whatever we do, it will be pretty simple... you know me... far more concerned with the food, the music and the booze than the stuff on the tables!

We are hoping to go down for labour day weekend (Aug 30th) to firm all this stuff up - not really into anything extensive for centrepieces... was thinking of something with sand, shells and perhaps a candle..

Frankly, though, if you want it set and settled right away, call. It's ALWAYS faster. +52 998.872.83.83 ext. 8046. This is Elisa's number, and goes to the automated system at the hotel. As soon as they pick up just dial 8046. I usually find it easiest to reach her between 10:30 and 11:30 AM Central time.
Becks, thank you so much for the info and tips on calling. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back. How on Earth will I be able to wait until the Fall to get married if I am so excited now? :) Thanks again!
Katy

Quick question for you ladies...

 

The gazebo over the pool looks kind of small.. how many people will it hold for a wedding? and is this the only gazebo on the resort?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hmmm.. I would say not more than 6-8 ppl - the thing with the Gazebo is that it isn't very private cause it is in the middle of the pool but a beautiful spot for pictures in the evening..

There is a second gazebo, that's bigger, and a bit more private (but not much).

 

The gazebo itself is about 15' in diameter, but the walkway is short, and you can seat people at the end of the walkway. It was offered to us as a back up area in the event of rain (the seating area is covered). Just note that it's right off the main lobby, so you would have onlookers.

 

You can see one photo of it in part 2 of my review (it's not a great photo). I took it from the area where you would have guests seated. http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t15195

Clearly I don't have enough work to do.. LOL we saw that gazebo as well .. have to look and see if I have a pic -- would be an OK rain option although none of us will need to think about that option..

ANy questions let me know! I didn't include the set up for the IPOD cause all the packages include ceremony music and we are leaning towards a DJ!
Hi Missy-
Could you be so kind to email me your spreadsheets? I am SUCH a spreadsheet person and would love to see how the packges compare. I don't have enough points to download things yet. All of your advice is much appreciated. Many thanks!

So, I booked Mannia! Yippee!

 

However, for those of you interested in using Swank (or at least seeing what they can do), I sent Victor a note last week indicating that Mannia was much cheaper, even with the supervisor fees, etc. I gave him 3 business days and never heard back. But today when I sent him the outside vendor contract so that he could book the supervisor and arrange power, etc., here's his reply:

 

" Sorry to read this, I was ready to improve my proposal and offer yo a better deal."

 

So he WILL move his prices when you've got something to leverage.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
