    They definitely allow you to use mugs.  In fact, most everyone will have them.  If you're going to give those to your guests, another great out of town bag gift idea is a tiny little bottle of dish soap.  That way they can wash them out at the end of the day and they won't be sticky for their morning coffee :)

We were thinking of getting a set personalized as our wedding favours and giving them to guests before we go. I just wanted to make sure they are allowed before we spend that money...

      Yes you can :)

            For after dinner (in Don Pablo Restaurant ) we have 4 options, just please let me know to can confirm:

            1. a private pool party with a cost of 1´680usd per 40people maximun and 3 hrs (8:00pm -11pm) of special drinks (pi±as coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  2 lounge rooms + special ilumination + sound equipment + speakers + microphone + lights and DJ- very nicely decorated with chairs and high tables,
            2. a private pool party with a cost of 1´470usd per 40people maximun and 3 hrs (8:00pm -11pm) of special drinks (pi±as coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  2 lounge rooms + special ilumination + 1 microphone + speaker to connect your Ipod and decorated too with chairs & hight tables,
            3. a private pool party with a cost of 1´020usd per 40people maximun and 3 hrs(8:00pm -11pm)  of special drinks (pi±as coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  special ilumination + 1 microphone + speaker to connect your Ipod and decorated too with chairs & hight tables,
            4. free time after dinner to do a get together in the lobby bar but we cannot book areas or tables there because this is part of the all inclusive services for all the guests in the complex

             

            Hope this helps.

            So I got am email from my WC and it isn't the same as what you recieved.  I am a bit frusterated as I thought that it was $5/pp for the first hour and $3/pp for every hour after for the Specialty cocktails.  I am also not sure why you got a 40 person and I got 30.  We will likely have 55 guests.  Any idea what I should do???  Also do they allow you to have karaoke at the pool side party we would really like it!

             

            We have different packages for a poolside cocktail after the dinner, as it is private it will have the following cost depending of the Open Bar you want:

            National Bar:        
            Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin, Whisky          $1900 USD


            Special Cocktails:
            Beer, Pi±a Colada Cocktail, Margarita Cocktail
            & Sparkling Wine                                                  $1100 USD

            This option  is for 30 persons maximum , in case there´s more people will have an extra charge.
            This packages includes 3 hours of open bar, set up, soft lighting, cocktail tables, tiffany chairs microphone and music.

            Maybe it is because she added in the "tiffany chairs, microphone, and music". I think a lot of brides bring their own ipod and dock. Maybe ask her what the price would be for just the open bar and table set up...

              Thank you I think you have calmed me quite a bit!  I asked Maria for a break down of costs and about some other options. 

              Has anyone on here had Maria as their WC?  How was she?
