Yes, they set it up beautifully.  We had table #s, seashells, and candles for the tables (12 tables + our sweetheart table), and maracas for each chair that they setup.  We paid $60.  They had told us that the tables wouldn't be ready for decorating until our ceremony began, so the moms wouldn't have time to set it up themselves.  It was definitely worth the money.

 

Also, girls, I forgot to mention to be ultra careful in the sun so you don't have any tan lines or get burnt!  The sun in Mexico is no joke!  I ended up getting a base before I left to try to avoid burning and wore 30 everyday once I arrived.  I also only wore bandeau tops so I wouldn't have any lines!

Amanda - looks like a beautiful wedding!!!  Thanks so much for the detailed review.  What struck me the most is how much you enjoyed your entire week, not just the wedding day.  This is one of the big reasons we're doing a DW - it's a vacation, not just a wedding day.  Glad you loved every second of yours!

Congratulations Amanda! So glad to hear you had an amazing time, and took in every moment :) And good for you for not stressing over the minor issues and just going with the flow.

Can't wait to see the photos.

Such a great tip, thanks!  Congratulations, looks like it was a blast.  You said that you provided the list of songs to the DJ, did he have them all with him, did you get him the list prior to the wedding, and if so, how long in advance?  I will probably have a few Jewish elements in my wedding as well, music in particular, so would be nice to know if we should download to iPod ourselves?

I am so glad you liked the smores bonfire since I was unsure about this. I am already locked into the Premier Swim-Up suite..oh well. Can't wait to see your pics. And thanks again!!

A bunch of people in our group actually used the jacuzzi every day and night outside of our premier swim up a ton - so it will be worth it! :)

Amanda, I have two quick questions for you... Did you have a choice between DJ All Music and Mega DJ from the Lomas website? The reason I ask is because there is a $500 difference between them!  Also, did you feel like you had enough lighting for your smores bonfire event? 

Thanks so much! :)
