      We had dinner at Tortuga and the tables were rectangle and we had 10 to a table. Yes, they had table cloths and we just used our flowers from the wedding for the head table and I think they had little vases with flowers on the other tables.

      There is another option for how many guests you want at each table, but I can't remember what the number was...I know it wasn't 4 though. I wanna say 6?

        Okay, so Jazmin said they cannot confirm the wedding time until we get there... How do I tell the photographer when to be there? And... our wedding is "supposed" to be at 4pm, and dinner at 7pm.... Is this a good time slot?

          Thats really weird JoLo! When I initially booked our wedding with Paloma, she told us that the only possible time for us was 2 pm. Since then mentioned getting a different time slot a couple of times, in emails, and Paloma has been very firm about us doing it at 2. Jazmin pretty much ignores my comments. Weird.

            I don't know... I feel like I want to be all organized to inform people of things, be ready for the photographer, etc... but it is difficult without knowing this stuff until you get there! But i guess they have to wait for the minister to confirm and whatnot... I need to stop stressing about this and go with the flow, but some of these things I just want to know! So far I have to say the planning has been going well though! Bite my tongue LOL..

              That is strange that she has not given you a time, she gave us 4:00 when we confirmed our date, but we are getting married on the Akumal side.

                Consider yourself lucky. The whole time planning, Jazmin "confirmed" our time slot, but once we got there, then she told us that it wasn't definite - it still had to be confirmed with the minister. We had nothing to worry about though - we got the time we wanted.

                  Yeah, we are going to have to get a bullhorn or something to communicate with the guests at the resort lol... How do you go about doing that? Getting their room numbers and leaving messages or something? I have no idea....

                    I know it is totally frustrating, nothing is settled until you get there. However, if you just "go with it" things will turn out great. (trust me this is not easy, I nearly needed medication to do so, lol).
                    Something to keep in mind though, our wedding was at 4, dinner at 5:30 (ended up being 6 as the restaurant wasn't "ready" for us). So we ate our cake quickly as we wanted sunset pictures. The sun starts setting around 6:45 and by 7:30 it's pretty dark. Just something to keep in mind, depending on the types of pics you want.

                      I figured as long as the photgrapher is ther for the ceremony, pictures after, we will be fine. Maybe they will even be there for our first dance... that would be nice...
