Had the first dance and then boogied with our family and friends for the rest of the time. We managed to sneak off before everyone else at about 10:45pm….


      Sorry it’s so long…. If you have any questions at all, post em… and my pics will be posted as soon as I get em!
      That is a useful review!!

      Where did you have your two hours disco party? Was it at the Hacienda or somewhere at the hotel? Did you have a few choices? Was it kind of private?

      Thanks!

          It was at the disco "La Rancherita" or something like that, haha. It's at the Hacienda. You also have the choice of the poolside dance - which is very pretty. We just couldn't afford it and hubby wouldn't justify paying for booze at an AI.

          Both are private - when you rent the disco, it's only your group allowed in there (although we did have a few people wander in and out - just checking it out I guess - once they saw the dress and everyone dressed up, they would leave). The poolside dance is kind of out of the way of all the other happenings so no one would really be hanging out around there.

            Stacy, Can we have music playing while eating dinner?

            Also, at the restaurant is the area where we get to eat kinda private or right there for everyone to see?

            How was the cake? Did you cut it during dinner or at the disco?

              Just Martha - I'm not sure if you can have music playing or not - we never even thought of that.

              The restaurant is not really private - but there was no one else there when we were there (for the first hour). And into the second hour, we didn't even notice the other people. It seems that they try and seat them on the other side.

              The cake was delicious!! We had the Tres Leche for dessert and then the wedding cake was chocolate - everyone loved both!! We cut the cake right after dinner - stil in the restaurant. We had a tonne left over - We told the waiter's to take it home to their families - I hope they actually did!

                Awesome, thanks. I will have to ask Jazmin about the music at dinner. My FI is a huge jazz/blues buff and wants to play this during dinner.

                One more question (for now, haha!) did you like your bouquet? The pictures I saw of their flowers were not the best...

                  I loved my bouquet!! I picked it from her book (and I will admit that there are quite a few that aren't that great)... but I picked the Birds of Paradise with these little purple flowers mixed in... I would suggest bringing an inspiration picture if you're really worried - I did, but I never ended up giiving it to Jazmin as I liked the one bouquet.

                  I would just like to say that Yuritzia makes me mad. She doesn't respond to any of her e-mails! UGH! I need to know if I can bring in an outside vendor for my cake and how much it'll cost me! I need to order this stupid cake! AHH! She makes me so mad!

                    Hi everyone! I sure wish I had found this site before my planning. Oh well I am getting married on April 4th, 2008 at the GBPT. Allot is all planned out with Jazmin. Anyone know of any company that has direct transportation from the airport directly to the resort, instead of stopping at all of the resorts before ours? Also, anyone know which are the best rooms to stay in with ocean view and close to everything? I am going to request that everyone stays close by if possible. I read Villa, 12, 14, 15 and 17.
