    We are having 50-60 guests and don't plan to do the cocktail hour...we are using the same approach that you did.  Did they swap 1 cocktail hour guest for 1 dinner?   Or did they just give you a partial credit for not using the cocktail hour?

My husband and I didn't miss anything while we were taking pictures. Also, we were still able to have a plated dinner. The only thing I would suggest with that is get rid of the dessert.. We didn't but ended up asking our DJ to move forward before it was served.

      They gave us 10 additional guests at dinner for the cocktail hour. Let me know if you have any more questions.

        Did any of your bridesmaids get hair and makeuo at the spa? I am wondering if they use MAC makeup?

          We had our hair done but nobody had make up done. I loved my hair! It was better than I ever thought! I was a little nervous because they do not speak much English... But it was awesome!

            Oh oh. I have some pictures of my makeup but I need to make sure they do not use a lot of black liner like they have in pic.

              I think I am going to do a hair and makeup trial. Why not?

                I did and I think it was worth it. I don't think the make-up they use is mac but I personally liked my make-up. It was more dramatic then I could ever do on my own which is good for your pictures.

                  My fiance and I are planning to ask our guests to meet us for a cocktail/informal meet & greet prior to dinner on the two days that most of our guests arrive.  Everyone is arriving at different times and we want to make sure that we see everyone prior to the wedding.  It looks like our options are Barracuda Bar or Rendezvous Bar.  We are leaning towards Barracuda.  Does anyone have an opinion as to which would be best?  Thanks!!

                    I would choose the Rendezvous Bar.

                     

                    The Barracuda Bar is an outdoor bar in the shape of a square with counter all the way around, so it would be hard to get a group to mingle.

                      Trying really hard not to freak out. The weather in Cancun for my wedding is Thunderstorms and more clouds than sun! I am soooooo bummed.
