Hey girl! I have Claudia as WC...she usually takes about a week to get back to me, but I'm ok with that, since we've still got quite a bit of time and I'm sure we'll figure most stuff out when we get down here. I'll try my best to answer your questions if I can.

 

 

  Are the tables rectangular or circular, and the sizes of the tables?

 

It depends on where your reception is. We're having ours in one of the banquet rooms. We can do a long rectangular table for 30 people or less, or round tables that seat 8 each. Here's a couple of pics she sent me:

-           How many to a table?

See above :)

 

-          As far as time line, what would you suggest (our wedding is at 1)

 

Here is my schedule (my ceremony is at 4). You can do something like this, or change it up. It's your wedding! Do what makes YOU happy! :)

 

Wedding ceremony at 4 pm.
Ceremony ends at 4:30 to 4:45
Pictures taken until 5:30 to 6 pm.
Reception starts at 6. Guests drink cocktails.
Dinner served at 6:30
First dance at 7:15 to 7:30
Dancing, etc until 8:30
Cut cake at 8:30
Reception ends at 9 (move on to disco for further dancing)

 

-          Is the cocktail hour cost additional? And is it per person?

 

Cocktail hour is an additional cost. I'm not doing one, because we're going to have an open bar at our reception, so I can't help you out with the cost there. I'm sure someone else will jump in.

 

-          What color are the linens? Is there an option to change the linen colors

I believe white linens are included in the package price that you choose. I'm not sure if they offer other options, but I'm sure any other colors will have an additional cost. We're going to just stick with white. I'm not even doing centerpieces...I'm super laid back (aka LAZY!)

 

Any other questions?? Hopefully this helped!
 


Thank you CJ!!! You're a gem!

Does anyone know how big the tables are? Apparently round table linens come in three different sizes! I guess I could fold them if they are too long, but it might look funny :)

 

9 weeks, OMG how time flies!

Now I'm sort of starting to stress about paying for a room for 2 nights for my photographer. I got a quote from my TA, and it's over $500...holy smokes!!! There aren't any specials going on right now for the Riviera Maya Barcelo hotels; I checked the happy days site. I'm hoping specials come out soon so that I don't have to pay an arm and a leg just to have good pictures taken. Ay yi yi!

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
