Cindy - Your food sounds great! The cocktail party is lighted - they are on lampposts and it looks amazing at night - I will show you a pic - not a very good one - but at least you get the idea - We had the Bugambilia sp? terrace and it was in the middle of the resort with an ocean view. So we had the lights from the resort too - it was still in a private area - very nice.
PICS OF RECEPTION:
Here it is in daylight
And not a very good pic - but far away at night (Our reception)
One of the tables that was set up (no charge of course)
AND a pic of the buffet and not a great pic of me LOL! I was HUNGRY
[I didn't do a mock hairstyle - I just brought some pictures in and she did a great job on my hair - but I wouldn't do the makeup - I haven't heard very god things about it - I just did my own!
As for the pictures, we chose the biggest package because we will have those forever! We got the CD with the negatives and we also asked for a copyright release which they gave us. I have had no problems reprinting them at target.com or walmart.com. I even blew up one of them to an 18x24 at target.com and it was like only $16!! No problem but I would ask for a copyright release when you go to pick up your pics. FYI they didn't have the option then to photograph the reception.

Those pictures are great and it's exactly what we are looking for. Interesting that the Hor D'Ouerves are served Buffet Style.. I like that!! The lighting looks great.. I'm really excited.
Thank you for the heads up on the make-up.. I will do it myself!! As for the hair.. I just am scared that they won't do a great job, but from what I can see in your picture.. Yours looks amazing
Thank you for putting my mind at ease and giving me some pointers.
P.S. We went and bought our Wedding Bands today!! One less thing to worry about!!

I remember seeing this picture of a sunset wedding with the aisle runner lined with candles on both sides. It was so beautiful!!
Sunrise and Sunset for Mexico â€“ Quintana Roo â€“ Cancºn â€“ coming days
Hope this helps,

We are having a Welcome Dinner on the Saturday that most ppl will be arriving. So, I need to let everyone know that we are having a Welcome Dinner before they leave. My dilema ~ Should I mail a seperate pre-wedding brochure just to let everyone know about the dinner or should I just make one brochure with everything included and mail that out?
Do you think it's tacky to send out the brochure and ask everyone to bring it along with them to Mexico?
We aren't planning anything besides the Welcome Dinner on Saturday and then the Wedding on Monday. After that.. everyone is on their own. So, I'm thinking it's just a waste of money to print up 2 brochures when I can fit everything on one.

I love the idea of a cocktail reception. My wedding is at 1pm, and I am really struggling to figure out what to do between the wedding and dinner - but now I am wondering if I just scrap the formal dinner and do cocktail stuff, then move to a restaurant for our 'included dinner'. I'll have to talk it over with FI.
I think it sounds like a a great idea for a later wedding though!!

Cindy: I just typed up a little Welcome Letter for everyone - thanking them all for coming, and then put a little timeline like the welcome dinner, and wedding day timeline. It was only 1 page, printed on regular paper with a little flip flop border around it. I just gave them to people as I saw them w/ the OOT Bags.
