OMG thanks so much for that! I am trying not to be a nutcase over details and planning, that def helped to put my mind at ease. It's great that you had a wonderful experience. I can't wait to see the pics from Sungold.

Maida you did ask some questions that I have had on my mind as well...so thanks!

This question is to any of the brides who have gotten married already at Coyaba...How is the mood during the day at the resort - Since they do not play music by the pool or beach? When I visited, Gabi told me they try to keep the mood serine and relaxing. Did you notice the silence or was everyone in your group content without the music in the background?

Also, did you arrange for activities during the day?

I didn't even notice that they didn't have music playing! We had a group of 60 people with about 80% of them in the 25-35 age range... so they didn't need music to have a good time... (though one of my guests did bring an Ipod with mini speakers and played it at lunch one day and Coyaba didn't seem to mind). We also brought a nerf football for the guests (the guys obviously) and they really seemed to enjoy it. But, for the most part, it was just a very relaxing experience. I've stayed at hotels that do play music and it can really not be pleasant because they might play something you hate (or play a cd over and over, which is a very terrible experience that I had at Riu... have you ever heard of "Alex F" song that was re-made about 4 years ago... they played it over and over and over again at Riu Negril... I almost stabbed my eyes out!) or even worse, you can't have a conversation because the music is BLARING. So, I think it was a good call on Coyaba's part. Plus, if you have a party crowd, (like we did) cocktails are the only music you need! (The have a chocolate banana rum frozen drink that I still dream about!) Also, they have personal rafts for the ocean, floating "lilly pads" in the water, snorkeling equipment, sea kayaks, paddle boats, etc... so there is plenty to do without ever feeling bored.

 

We only had 2 "arranged" activities. We did a golf outing at the White Witch course (Ritz Carlton's course) which is apparently world famous. We also did our own informal "poker tournament" the 2nd night. We did it all on our own (in the polo grounds) and Coyaba was great about letting us take over the space (without charging us extra).. we brought the chips and cards and the bartenders did table service (because we were the only people there). We thought about doing arranged trips but I decided that my guests could decide on their own if they wanted to do activities. It ended up working out, because some just wanted to lay around and sleep in, while others booked trips, rented cars, chartered fishing boats and went zip lining. There wasn't a single person who wanted to do something but didn't, or went alone... there was always a handful of people up for going along for the fun. Also, I wanted everyone to feel like they were on a vacation with a wedding on the schedule...

Myda, I am using Sungold but my package info. is at home. I will try to post the length we contracted them for when I get home :)

 

AJander, I have a few questions for you if you don't mind! We are thinking of going with the band. Can you tell me some of the music they played? Did they play all Jamaican music? Were you able to see a playlist or make suggestions? Also, how many silk petals did you buy for the aisle? TIA

Hello...I have a couple of questions for Angie. I know your wedding is over so I hope I'm not being a pest.

Although I know you rented the tent at the Coyaba. Did you also rent the dance floor? If so, do you remember what the cost was and if it's a necessity?

 

Also, i'm sure you used Sandra for your flowers? Were you satisfied with the boquets? They sure aren't cheap.

 

Thanks so much!!!!

Dana

I would also like to hear about the flowers. You are right they aren't cheap, my mouth was hanging open when she sent me the pricing information. I wanted to go with a different florist, but the vendor fee doesn't make it worth it.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
