    Hey guys I'm home! Our wedding was the 3rd and it was wonderful!! I'll try and answer as many questions as I can. Here are a few responses to some of the questions I saw fly by. I'll post my review and pics this week. - I did not contact the videographer prior to getting to Mexico. Once there I gave them the name of some songs I wanted dubbed over the DVD and it came out great. - I brought my ownd DJ however at one point I had talked to the hotel DJ and he asked for music titles 2 weeks prior to wedding - I used Juan Navarro for pictures so I paid for that outside of the ultimate package. He was absolutely marvelous. Money well spent! - we got the buffet mix between silver and gold menus. Buffet s the only option if you have over 40 people. - I got the ultimate package, outside photographer($1500), 65 people and extra decorations and we spent 10k. P.s. Because of the amount of people we booked and the promo packages offered at the time we only paid $200 total for our room for 7 night 8 day stay. - I took a bunch of crap for my welcome bags I put it all in one suitcase and I while it was in the scanner in Mexico the guard asked if it was all wedding stuff I said yes rambled off a few items and went on my way. I got the green button though so I have no idea what would have happened if they needed to open it. Let me know if u have any more questions. The new Mrs. Moye'

      Hi Brenda my wedding is scheduled for April 27th and I do not have any of that stuff. Could you email me the bouquets and sites of Gaezbo and terrance? I'm not sure if I want the club terrace or the garden.  Of course if you wouldn't mind:-)

        Hi,

        I'm so happy to hear your wedding went great.   I just gave my deposit yesterday for August 12th 2012! So excited, but nervous at the same time :)

        Question- How was the reception area decorated? dinner tables? and what was the cost for the decorations? How did you choose the decorations? Did you bring any of your own decorations? Also was there any bottled water available for the guest during ceremony/reception?

         

        Thanks,

        Kat

        Thanks for that info Caboose!  I was thinking we'd be spending around that much ourselves, but I didn't think we'd be able to have that large of a wedding for that money.  I was thinking right around the twenty person mark, so maybe there is a little more room for guests on the guest list!! WOO :)

          Thanks for that info., makes me feel a lot better! (knowing it wasnt over 10k) I have 42 people coming and was getting worried about the price of the buffet for the extra 22 people, etc.  Did you do the cocktail hour?

            I was wondering if any of you ladies can help me. We are having our dinner reception on the Club Terrace, we will be having around 20 ppl or so.  Should we go with 1 big table or several? I like the seperate table idea but am not opposed to the 1 long table either. Any suggestions??

              The round tables that seat 6 people look really good scattered around on the terrace. I've seen pics of both and really like the round tables.

                Hi Ladies, 

                 

                How far ahead of your wedding did you send out your invitations? My wedding is so disorganized... it's in march and i still haven't sent them out. Is that pushing it?

                 

                Thanks!

                    Another really cute idea is to have your round tables for the guests and one small table in the center or on the side for just you and your hubby. It is your first meal together as husband and wife and I think it is really romantic that way!
