    Great Review...

    I didnt even know the spa was an option which i absolutly LOVE.. Tell me was it super windy?? I am planning to get married in June so i am scared it might be TOO hot to be outside and my guests will want to run back to their rooms to cool off..

    What were the pashminas for? Im from Jersey too so I am trying to run away from the cold..lol

    I love your pics.. EVERYTHING was great!! Thanks so much :)

      You mentioned that you stayed in a Jr. Jucuzzi suite. Is that the same thing as their honeymoon suite?

                Nice pictures.
                I didn't know you can have a reception in the spa either.

                  Thanks everyone!! You are all too sweet....Cheese Diva - that shirtless guy would be my husbands bro-in-law (mine now too)...that pic is my favorite because it really does show how much fun (and tequila) everyone had....HA! Ok ladies, I'm going to try and answer everyones questions...So here is a start with Tlomlad!

                  Originally Posted by tlomlad

                  1. what kind of dinner plan did you have for the reception... we are doing the ultimate package and they made us pick a set menu for everyone. I wanted my quests to have a choice. Hence the sit down dinner. WE did the sit down dinner and just asked Claudia if we could give our guests tweo meals to choose from. She said that they normally won't do it but for us she would...I am a bit pushy and I have a lot of food allergies, so I think she just gave in. I also had to just give her a total number for each meal and I gave her a table chart with who was getting what. [/I]

                  2. did you pay for your rehearsal dinner, and how much per person I did pay for th reshearsal dinner..it was $12 per head and we had 30 people.

                  3. would you reccommend the spa? what was the bar set up like there? I LOVED the spa!! It was private and still outside. I loved the idea that my guests were going to a part of the resort that they didn't walk through everyday...in fact most of them had no idea that the area even existed (unless they used the spa services). It was sort of protected from the wind too, unlike being out on the beach. The bar was set up on the far side of the spa, near the "stage" where the jacuzzi is (if you look at pics online of the spa, you can see what I'm talking about.

                    For some reason I can't get the muli-quote feature to work...so I'm just going to do a list of answers for everyone else....here we go:

                    dc22173 - I purchased the starfish for $13.99 from Simply Flowers - Products - Bouquet Jewels

                    mandm - My koozies are from Promotional Products, Promotional Items, Imprinted Promotional Products, Custom Promotional Products, Personalized Items
                    They were great and really fast and flexible. Not to mention the cheapest I could find!

                    Jodey - We hired the dj for 4 hours and he did play through dinner. We ended up extending our time an extra hour (5hrs total) because we were having so much fun and nobody was ready to stop dancing at 10. I think it was really nice to have the background dinner music...I think it would have been too quiet without it. I didn't organize a play list for dinner, but I did give him a few artists that we would like to hear to give him an idea of the type of music to play (Jack Johnson, Sade, Dave Matthews, etc).

                    rockbride - The large hurricane with sand shells and votives were included with set up - at my request. I brought the small votives on the sides, the mat the hurricane was on and the starfish on the table. I dont know if they use them as a standard set up when you dont order centerpeices because I asked for them specifically. I sent a pic of them and asked to have them on my tables and have them included in the package.

                    JoannaR - It is not superwindy in the spa area. We had a nice, welcomed breeze but it wasn't blowing stuff off the table or anything. The area is sort of tucked in between buildings, so that blocks a lot of the wind. For our day, it was super windy out by the gazebo and terrace though. Since we got married in January, it actually cools down quite a bit at night (like 60s) so it wasn't too hot for any of us outside. Sometimes it even gets a little chilly, which is why I got pashimas for all the ladies. I have no idea what its like in June because I've never been to Mexico in the summer, so I can't really say whether it will be too hot for your guests outside at night. Maybe you can post a new thread and ask everyone...I'm sure there is lots of June brides out there wondering the same thing.

                    Kryztan - No the Jr. jacuzzi suite is not the same as the honeymoon suite. I believe the honeymoon suite is larger than the jr. jacuzzi and is on the first floor of the resort. Our suite was up on the 6th floor, in the tower.

                    Ok..I think thats all of them for now. Feel free to ask away ladies! I lived and died for the reviews before my wedding, so I totally understand. The former dreams brides on this forum before me really helped with all my planning, so I am more than happy to help all of you!!
