Jennypert,

 

I am also bringing beverage napkins in our wedding colors for the cocktail party! They had such a nice, personalized touch. I was so excited how they turned out too.

 

For my cocktail centerpieces, here are the pictures I sent to Lynda. I told her I wanted arrangements similar to this size, that I liked the blue vases and I wanted coral and pink color flowers.

 

Lynda charged me for the BC-08 item on Lomas' site, but I customized them the way I wanted everything to look. Hope this helps!!

 

Msuarez,

 

I agree that this is the way to go! You can get things for much less than the price on Lomas' website.

Hi Murmel,

 

We were planning to have personalized shot glasses on the reception tables as wedding favors (yes - my family and friends will definitely use them!). I had assumed we could get the waiters to pour tequila shots for the toasts during the reception. I had also assumed we could specify certain brands of tequila such as Patron and get a bottle for the table. Maybe I'm assuming too much. Do you think this will be a problem? Should I make this a 'special request' on the detail sheet with the wedding coordinator?

Hi JMK923,

 

I was not going to do any decorations for the Welcome Cocktail Party on Zocalo Terrace except for some paper napkins we ordered in our wedding colors. But, if the small centerpieces are only $85 for 8, I'll order some. Where did you see them on the Lomas website? The cheapest I saw were $25 for a small vase with 2 roses.

I am heading down there tomorrow! I will check what tequila they have at the bar. If it's something they have the bartenders can serve it no problem. But I don't know if they will leave a bottle on the table. If it's a brand they don't carry, you might be able to request it, but pay extra.

 

I am going to try to meet with a local WC and ask some questions! And take photos...lots of photos!

Great! Thank you so much. Some people are very particulate about their booze. My sister only drinks Crown Royal and a friend's husband only drinks Dewar's scotch (yuk!). We like good tequila and will be disappointed if we can only find Jose Cuervo in Mexico.

Hi. For past brides, I really like this resort but I was wondering if anyone every had anybody in their group complain that there was nothing to do. I'd like a visit to this resort but we have friends that have to constantly be doing something. They aren't content to sit by a pool or on a beach for more than maybe one afternoon, which means they will be looking for stuff to do. From what I read about Puerto Morelos it's still a small town and the shopping and nightlife is non-existent. Can anyone help?? thanks!!

I will check what booze is available!

There are the usual resort activities to keep folks busy- volleyball, soccer, kayaks, games, nightly shows, board games, etc. Puerto Morelos is quiet. But Playa del Carmen and Cancun are both only about 30 minutes away. So lots of shopping/partying in both those spots.

 

Overall, the Sensatori is a bit quieter, it is mainly a family resort.

Thanks murmel. I guess that means kids? Do they have an adult section or an area where you can escape? We're older so don't care for the screaming kids section anymore. Been there done that lol!

 

Has anyone had a really small group for a wedding there, i.e. 6 or 8? If so, what did they allow you to have in terms of cocktails and a semi private reception? Or did they even allow it? Since for a small group renting a dance floor, etc isn't worth the money, is there somewhere that a group that size could go to party after dinner? Or would travelling into PDC for the night be a better idea?

 

thanks again!

Hi acw271011,

 

We are planning to go to the Mojito Lounge after our wedding reception. I believe it's open until 2am, and they have live music too! Our group loves to dance, drink and party so I was also concerned about keeping everyone occupied. But, how can you not have a good time in Mexico with your closest friends and family?! I'm sure we will also do a night out in either Cancun or Playa del Carmen to change up the scenery :)

There is an adult only section. That includes a pool, bar, swim up bar, and one of the buildings of rooms. Overall, there are kids around, but they go to bed early. So I would not be too worried. The Mojioto bar is good for dancing, but if you want a wild party, I would go into town.

Hi guys,

 

We are scheduled to have our wedding reception at zavaz plaza, but now I'm considering switching to zocalo al fresco (if its available) because it might be fun to have a view of the beach. But I'm torn. Any advice?

 

Past brides, where did you do your reception and what did you like/ dislike about it?

 

Any one have an photos of your reception at zocalo?

 

6 months away! Stuff is getting real!

msuarez,

 

If you search back through this forum, there is a review by tkuzma on Zocalo, AND she posted pictures! We decided to have our cocktail hour at Zocalo based off of her review. Plus, I thought it would be nice to switch up the atmosphere as we are having our reception at Plaza Zavaz.  Hope this helps :)


Oh, and we are leaving for the Azul Sensatori in 2 weeks!! Ahh can't believe my turn is coming up! I remember when I first stumbled upon BDW... Which seems like an eternity ago lol. I am so thankful for all the advice and help I've received throughout the planning process. I'm beyond ecstatic, and will absolutely share pictures with you ladies once we return :)
