      Also Is anyone doing a mid reception entertainment , My FI is Italian and most weddings here have Italian dancers or some form of entertainment is expected . I had already planned on getting the mariatchi band to play as we left the church , but spanish dancers would be intresting for the reception

      Thanks for any input

      It is probably good to not go with with violin since I have read it can be hard to hear depending on the waves and number of people.  We are going with the sax, we will see what happens.  My WC was nice enough to send me a list of a few songs that the person already knows that we can choose from.  Had to go to you tube to hear some of them, but there were a lot of great choices.  Oddly enough, lots of Beatles.  Congrats!

        I have planned most of the wedding (just finished the flowers) and am currently looking for an outside photographer and videography. I love all the recommendations on here so thanks!

         

        As for the resort, we have been there 2 times before and love it. We are really excited...the only hick up right now...for those planning weddings...tell guests to book rooms asap! We are 2 and a half months away and there are no rooms avaliable at the palace....

         

        for OTT bags... we are really wanting to do this...but I was wondering what type of things past brides have put in them???

         

        :D

        Tell your guests to keep checking... we had some guests book at the Tropical because the Palace was full and a few weeks later the Palace was available and then the Tropical was full so they were able to move over to the Palace.  Also, a majority of our guests staying at the tropical/colonial were upgraded (for free) to the palace when they arrived.  Just keep checking!  :)

          I don't know what our guests had for the cocktail hour but we ordered the Mexican appetizers.

           

          We had a caesar salad that was huge... Tortilla soup... surf and turf... and the dark chocolate fondant.

           

          ALL of our guests said it was the best meal they had.  I agree - it was amazing.  I thought the lobster tail may be poor quality but it was delicious.  So much so that our guests went to the caribe restaurant the next night to get more lobster.  

           

          For the kids they gave fish sticks or chicken nugget and fries.  

           

          After dinner everyone said they were stuffed but a few hours later we had a taco guy come and serve traditional street tacos - some couldn't even try them because they were still stuffed.  oh an no one really ate cake - we had 2 tiers and we would have been fine with 1 tier.

            I got the violin... she was good!  Although I hardly remember her playing - at the moment it's the farthest thing from your mind!

              Dd you have to pay extra for your food changes? I like the idea having tortilla soup instead.

                We had bass and guitar. From what I was able to hear (make sure you have someone record some if it so you can hear it later haha) they did a good job, a very beachy feel! I choose 4 songs, some contemporary some older and they could play all of them!

                  I'm getting married the day after you are :) I hadn't heard of any other early July brides before! I'm just finishing our OOT bags...We did the cups (from Dollartree) and ordered stickers from Davet Desings, I also made the key card/tip holders that worked out really well. And we did a wedding week survival kit. I'm going to print a few things like a list of things to do, list of everyone's room numbers, an itinerary etc. We put all of this stuff in really nice beach bags that I found at Ardene at West Edmonton Mall.
