Question: welcome dinner... is that something included in the wedding packages? Or is that something extra you have to pay for for the resort to organize the tables and such for you at the buffet?

Your wedding looked beautiful!  Thank you for posting your review. Welcome back!

 

I am a vegetarian as well, as are a few people in my group.  When you pre- chose your dinner entrees, did you get to pick 2 "meat" choices and was the vegetarian one available for the people that wanted it?  I would like to give my guests 2  non veggie options to choose from....  

 

thanks in advance!

I had heard of other brides doing a welcome dinner so i asked Eugenia about it a few months before we left. She said it was no problem and arranged it for us at no charge.

The bus to Coco Bongo took 30-45 minutes i think. We left at 9:30 and were inside and seated by 10:30ish. There were about 10 people from our resort and we also stopped at the Gran Sierens to pick up a few people. The bus was pretty empty. I'm not sure if on busier nights they would stop at more resorts or not. There is usually a Coco Bongo rep hanging around the pool that you can ask questions and book from.

Hey, yea we picked 2 meat options and i told her that myself and another guest were vegetarians. When we met with her before the wedding she had this noted (and specifically that the Bride was vegetarian). We didn't know ahead of time what the vegetarian option would be though. During our dinner the waiters went out of their way to ask us if the vegetarian option (pasta) was okay. They originally were planning on giving us linquini, which I vetoed as i thought it would end up all over my face! So they gave us a less messy noodle instead! If you know sort of what you want i'm sure you could request it. The Frutos Del Mar restaurant is attached to the Italian restaurant so it was easy for them to bring over some pasta.

For brides that had their dinner in the a-la-carte restaurants, did you guys make any of your speeches there? If so, were there mics provided for you guys to use? And were you introduced to the rest of the party in any way?

Hi!

Thanks for answering my question.  We are staying at the Coba (but getting married at the Akumal side) so we chose the Mediterranno restaurant.  On the menu, there is an awesome veggie option (vegetable caponata) that I would be very happy with.  So...hopefully we can pick 2 meat options and the vegetarians can have the veggie option!

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
