For those just starting out like me, here are a few questions of mine Daniela answered. Hope this helps!

 

I am interested in "The Aqua" package and is expecting 50 guests. Just have a few questions:

 

The Ceremony

 

· Is set-up/clean-up included in package? yes

 

· Is there anything that we will need that's not included in the package? Probably DJ, open bar…additional decoration maybe…

 

1/2 Post-Ceremony Cocktail Party

 

Where is this party typically held? Is it at the site of the dinner reception? Its usually held at the Tequila Reef Terrace. Where we also have the dinner receptions usually.

 

What are my options for having an open bar during the party? The charge for open bar is $10 usd + 10% tax + 15% service per person per hour.

 

Dinner Reception

 

· Is clean-up/tear-down included? Yes it is.

 

· What is the service charge or is it included? It is included.

 

· What are my options for having an open bar during the dinner? The same, $10 usd + + per person per hour. If you purchase the open bar for the 3 hours reception, I give you without charge the Open Bar during ½ hour cocktail post ceremony J

 

· If there are more than 20 people, do we order an additional cake? Is there a cake cutting fee? Ill let you know!

 

· How much time do we have for the dinner reception? It is a 3 hour dinner reception.

 

Lodging

 

· Are there any specials for the couple? If you book more than 20 rooms you will receive an upgrade subject to availability for the next category of room you booked.

 

· Is there a minimum requirement for in-house guests? Is there a max? Not exactly.

 

· Are there special rates for blocks of rooms for guests? There are, but those are the ratyes we use for Conventions and Incentive Groups, so actually I suggest to book with a Travel Agent or Tour Operator; you will find good deals wioth airfare, transportations and hotel stays J

 

· Typically, what are the all inclusive rates for May/June? I checked online for a 4 night stay for 2 guests and it was about $1200. Is this the rate per person or for the 2 guests? Yes those are the rates.

 

Other

 

Is it a requirement to use the in-house photographer and videographer? Do you have a portofolio of the photographer's work? If you bring your own photographer theres a $300 usd fee that has to be cover. You can see our photographer job at MEXICAN WEDDING PHOTOS and Cancun Wedding Videos | Mayan Riviera Wedding Videographer | Miguel Cantarell - Home

 

 

When we make a deposit it hold a date, can we also reserve a reception site? So far, my favorite is a beach ceremony and dinner outdoors. Yes you can do that.

Pretty much! All Fri-Sun reserved in May and the only Monday left I believe. For June, the earliest or only, Friday. I don't think I can wait until December though!

Hmmm, if it were me, I would probably go with the Monday date. People can make a long weekend out of it. Do you have any guests that are absolute must haves at your wedding? (like parents, siblings, a best friend) If so, I would run it past them and make sure it will work, but be sure not to get too many opinions because you might end up going crazy. lol

I would check on some websites like Travelocity etc and see the price differences. If there is not much difference I would go with the Monday one. Really your guests are going to be taking off the same amount of vaca from work b/c they are going to be at the resort over the weekend still. So if you present it that way, then you won't have to deal with hurricane season and really hot temps.

 

That's my thoughts...

Rates from resort site and Expedia/Kayak/etc :

 

Sat, May 16 - Tue, May 19

$300 per night for 2 ppl -- all inclusive; Deluxe Garden View Junior Suite

$593 per person from Austin to Cancun

 

Thu, June 18- Sun, June 21

$300 per night for 2 ppl -- all inclusive

$652 per person from Austin to Cancun

 

 

Did you use a travel agent and were you able to get a better deal on flights and lodging? The resort rates aren't bad but it would be nice if the flights were lower. Most of our guests are flying from Texas, California, Pennsylania and Michigan.

 

If you could recommend anyone or share your experience I would greatly appreciate it!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
