I am panicing a little about this news of the terrace remodeling. My reception is there and in just 2.5 weeks! YIKES! I just emailed Cecilia and I am hoping that this won't be until after my wedding since she has not mentioned it to me at all!
Other than that we are all set! My only issue is that I have emailed Cecila for 2 weeks with last min questions and no reply so far. I know eveyone says she's great when you are there so I try to be forgiving but it's just a little frustrating when you can't get in touch with her. Sorry, just venting here. Anyway, the salon is working to book another stylist because they can't seem to get all my bridesmaids in even though they all contacted them months ago. I strongly suggest you and any ladies that may want salon services (hair & makeup) call 6 months out.
In spite of these few small speedbumps I am so so ready to be married and so so so ready for Mexico! Its becoming harder and harder to focus on the day to day (work, laudry, etc.) less than 2 weeks till I get on the plane!
Our date is April 24th so be looking for a review from me in May!
Thanks for your help ladies

I have a couple more questions for you guys
Does anyone know how much extra it is per/hour for the reception to go on for longer? Also what are you guys planning on doing after the reception? I've read reviews & it seems that DC is not the most lively of resorts in Cancun. Does anyone have any fun suggestions for me as my recetion is probably going to end around 10-ish.
Thanks again ladies

The reception longer price is $10 per hr per guest plus 11%tax plus 15% service. This includes the staff, and open bar for that time. Plus you pay an extra hour of sound system/DJ or whatever you need.
DC is not the liveliest but this is a good thing...unless you are into white t-shirt contest spring breakers! lol... There is a club called Azucar which is next door, and DC guests get free admission and 2 free drink tickets there...though it's a late start and last time I went at 12am, people were barely showing up. Could be perfect though, like having a private party for your group if no one else is there, then at 12:30am a salsa band starts up.
Other brides just hit up the lobby bar and bring their ipod for more partying.

Did anyone just do the sound system for the reception? Do you just need a playlist on you Ipod & docking station and is there someone there to switch songs for you?
I know these questions have been asked before and i'm sure i've read the answers, but i need a refresher...lol

I will be having my reception in the ballroom ending at 8:30pm. Would I have to pay extra to stay there and continue to party if I dont need the staff anymore. I know this might sound a little off, but I am on a budget and have almost 80 guests and can't pay extra for each person and every extra hour. I was thinking of purchasing bottles and taking them out at the end and putting 1-2 bottles on each table. Letting the party become just a huge party and every table having their own bottles so there would be no need for waiters.... I am also bringing the DJ so I dont need to rent anything..DO you think she would let this happen ...
