    How did you distribute them? Did you do it yourself or did the hotel staff help? How did you do this when guests arrive on different days?

     

    We have about 30 guests so not too overwhelming to hand them out ourselves but thought it would be cute to have it waiting in their room for them..

     

    Thanks!

    We hand delivered all of ours as our guests checked in.  It was a nice way for us to welcome them all to the resort personally, but we did end up spending most of a day in the lobby greeting people.

      Previous Brides-

      Did you use a travel agent to book your hotel and airfare? Or did you just have everyone book their own? I have contacted a travel agent and it seems like I can find prices thru expedia/orbitz to be cheaper than the rate that the travel agent has given.  Even though the rate that the travel agent is giving is the "group rate" I don't see the perks of the group rate if it is more expensive than booking it thru expedia or orbitz. 

       

      With that said, did any previous brides get a group rate for hotel rooms directly from the hotel? If so, please let me know how I can do that as well.

       

      Thanks ladies!!

        we used a travel agent who beat any price you found on the internet by $10. So not only were we getting the best deal but we were all getting the value of using a travel agent. 

         

        Our travel agent negotiated a free rehearsal dinner for 20 people, a free cocktail hour for 71 people, an upgraded room for us and she made sure all of our guests were around one another. She got everyone private transportation from the airport for the price of the "group" transportation as well. She also got us good deals on the excursions.

         

        Basically we told all of our guests when they were ready to book to search the internet for the best deal and then call our agent. It worked out perfectly.

          I have a makeup question for past brides, what makeup did you use? I have oily skin and being at the beach with high humidy is screaming oil slick! I want it to look natural but with good coverage that will control the oil. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks!

            I have the same problem... and I literally had a friend follow me around with these oil tissue things and she'd blot my face every so often...  I don't know how to get around it.  When I walked out of the salon my make-up was perfect... but once I started walking down the aisle - it "shiny" bad.  :(

              maybe using mineral powder foundations will work. Just make sure to wear makeup or moisturizer with SPF.

                Anyone have recommendations on which building I should request to stay in? Preferred smoking section, my fiance and a lot of the people staying with us are smokers. Also do the junior suites come with a balcony?

                  Im not 100% sure but I don't think that any of the rooms are smoking but you can smoke on the patios for sure, and yes all rooms have patios! We were in the Oaxaca building, beach front and it was fantastic. There are two buildings and they are side by side, you can see them on the map. My biggest request would be closest to the ocean (or ocean front) if you can, saves a lot of walking!!

                      I am currently working with Claudia for my June 7, 2013 wedding.  She is easy to work with and answers my questions within a couple days, which I feel is good timing given the number of weddings they do and the process that they have to keep for each of the different weddings.
