Any info you have on the different reception choices for a party that size would be helpful.
    I believe you might be referring to the brides that chose to have lounge furniture out on the beach, those brides rented the furniture from an outside vendor.

      Michelle,

      Your wedding and reception sound really nice! I can't wait to see photos! It sounds like the type of wedding/reception that I would like. Who was your guitarist? Did you find an outside vendor? Were you able to hear the guitar well with the waves in the background. i had heard that sometimes string instruments are not good for beach weddings. I love the guitar and think it would be beautiful. Was the garden setting for your reception private? Is there a minimum number of guests that you must have in order to reserve this space? I think we should have at least 30 or 40 guests...but at this time it is so hard for me to know exact numbers.

        Michelle-
        Thanks for your reply! So you did not have any reservations at the Blue Parrot beforehand and just got the WC to help you plan once you were there? That is a good option. Thanks for being so helpful!

          I think his name was Max although I didn't get to talk to him at all.

          I had talked over email with the party planners months ago, but decided instead of having a private party to just pick up the tab for our guests...that's what the WC helped us figure out. This was more affordable than the open bar option they provided and it saved us a little bit of money. :)

            Hoping you ladies can provide some advice:

            I'm planning on sending out my invitations for my November 7th wedding this week. I guess I need some reassurance that it'll go over fine despite all this Swine flu mess. I know it's dying down but I just hope my guests will also realize that. Good idea to send now or hold off for a little longer? My RSVP deadline is August 1st.

            Also - should I post updates on my wedding homepage regarding the Swine flu or should I just not even mention it?

              I'm not sure about sending them, I guess now is as good of time as any since you can't wait too much longer. I would definatley say something on your website, because otherwise you are just ignoring the pink elephant in the room. Everybody is going to know and it just seems like the right thing to do to me to acknowledge it and say, hey this sucked but its over now and the travel alerts are lifted and hey the wedding isn't until November anyways!

                Did I miss something or has anyone else noticed the price discrepancy for the wedding packages online? Holy crap, I just booked in February and now they are different. They are actually better deals.....cheaper! WTH

                  Hello brides & grooms! How is everyone's planning going? I went dress shopping the other day and I was so set on what I didn't want, no strapless and nothing with a puffy skirt! But then my mom & sis started making me try on those styles and darn it they look good! So I'm down to 5 possibilities of all different styles (even a lace dress and I usually hate lace!) and I'm just wondering if former brides who wore real wedidng dresses were uncomfortable & hot? I was really set on the evening dress style but now I'm torn...

                    Kimmy...I just got back and I had a "real" dress with a train and all, although I didn't get the extra poof underneath. I was a little warm under the skirt at the reception (when I was dancing), but I wouldn't have changed anything. What's nice about Mexico in April and May is even though it gets to the low 90s during the day it's usually in the 70s at night with a nice breeze. I just lifted up my dress a little while I was dancing...classy!

                      Shay...I REALLY hope everything turned out as close to perfect as possible, considering the circumstances. I don't get over here often, but when I read about what was happening to you and some of the other gals I began crying for you! I so desperately want to hear it all turned out unforgettably (in the best way possible). Give us an update when you can!!!
