I think 1pm is a good wedding time! We had ours at 3 and it was very rushed to get the photos done. I didn't get all the beach photos I wanted and I got none at the Hacienda which I had also really wanted. The great thing about a resort wedding is that you don't have to worry about your guests waiting around for you...there is lots for them to do! Also, the day won't seem long for you...unfortunately it goes by too quickly!
The WCs are slow to respond but they do know what they're doing and they can literally organize all the details after you arrive. Things I would recommend to organize in advance are:
- spa/hair appointments: email the spa directly and they'll send you back a booking form. email@example.com
- bring extra decorations, place cards, etc. to give to the WC when you have your meeting
- bring pictures of your desired bouquets and they can usually be replicated
The WC will send you the needed forms via email when she does finally respond. The forms will include restaurant and menu choices, a rooming list, and a list of extras with corresponding prices. The resort you are staying at will determine which restaurants you get to choose from. We stayed at Coba and had our dinner at Portofino...it was fantastic! Our menu was as follows:
Mixed italian appetizer buffet
Cream of portobello mushroom soup
Pistachio encrusted seabass OR chicken gorgonzola
Tiramisu (we had out wedding cake served at the reception instead)
Some of the extras we paid for were:
DJ for 2 hrs: $420 USD
Special cocktail bar service for 2 hrs: $8 USD per person
Mexican guitar duet for 45 min: $265 USD
3 tier wedding cake: $65 USD
All tables, chairs, etc. were provided for the reception, only the DJ and bar service were an extra charge.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
