Hi Tracy.

 

The theme dinners are $50 a person and the regular poolside dinners are $35 I believe? 

 

For the Italian restuarant, check out my photo tour.  It's Dolce Vita.  You can see the layout of the restaurant.  Most likely, you will have the place to yourself for about an hour before guests will start rolling in.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of what time to have a hair appointment with a 1PM wedding please?  I was thinking maybe 9 or 10? Does anyone know what time they open?

      Thank  you for the excellent tip to ask point blank about the additional meals instead of the theme menu.  Today I heard back from the coordinator and YAAAY they are still an option : )  So we are now booked for a private poolside dinner followed by the poolside reception, I am really excited it’s starting to feel real!

      Great stuff Sun Surf Sand :) My wedding is in 6 weeks and I still havn't heard whether the poolside is available! x

        Quote: We went to the one in Playa Del Carmen. I haven't been to the one in Cancun but I've heard it's just as good, if not better, than the Cancun one. I honestly can't remember how long it took (too many bevies perhaps!) but I think it was about 1/2 an hour betwen the resort and Coco Bongo, maybe less. We bought our tickets through the resort. Coco Bongo has a rep on site that will organize everything for your group.

        Thank you very much KRama, We will wait to book at the resort as I was wondering if it was better to book with travel agents here but it sounds cheaper to book through the resort

        I would say 9.

         

        9 - hair

        10:30 - done (always give yourself extra time!)

        11 - Room service or eat lunch (it's hot, you must eat!)

        11:30 - makeup

        12 - one last pee, and then the dress goes on!

        12:15-12:45 pictures

        12:45 load yourself in the cart to go to the wedding

        1pm you walk down the aisle :)

            Hi Ladies,

             

            I have a few last minute questions...I'm wondering what some of you have tipped the following people:

            -wedding co-ordinator

            -bartenders for private pool side reception

            - waiters at dinner

             

            Thanks.

            Sarah

              Is the 3 milks (sweet, soft and creamy mexican dessert) wedding cake option similar to a plain sponge?

                  Thanks for the itinerary aswell! On the bright side, atleast with a 1pm wedding there is lots of time for pictures! And maybe even alittle downtime (probably not :P). Do we have to book a time with the salon or does the WC do that?
