Actually... they didn't!? They did decorate it 2 nights later, which was rather random. We were married on weds, and on the friday when we got in the bath was drawn and there were rose petals strewn about...

We never bothered to ask about it.

The night of the wedding we ended up changing after the reception and went to the mojito lounge to continue on the dancing, so it wasn't a big deal. The breakfast in our room the next day was really really nice though!

Almost as soon as we got home, my Father got really ill. He went into the hospital on our one month anniversary, and on the morning of November 5th, he passed away. I was with him. I can't even begin to express how much I miss him.

Needless to say, this has been a really horrible time for me and my husband. I am the only child and Mom is out of the picture. My husband was very close to my Dad as well. The honeymoon made a complete halt as soon as we got home, most unfortunately. Vance has been nothing but super supportive -and I am so glad I have him, every moment of the day.

The good news is that Dad made it to my wedding. And though he was ill there too, he walked me down the aisle and he was super super proud of both me and of Vance.

For you ladies who's weddings are fast approaching....
The hotel is lovely, the beach was beautiful and the seaweed isn't that big a deal unless your a total wuss. The food was just fine. Zacolo -the mexican restaurant was great and so was the Siena -Italian. Didn't love Zavas terrace, but they were the kitchen that prepared our wedding dinner and it was fantastic -we had the steak and lobster tail.
We totally loved Le Chique and went back for the 14 course meal on our last night (it did cost extra). Las Tapas we wouldn't bother going to again, it was a disappointment.
Our room was the honeymoon suite and was gorgeous.

The wedding planners on site were fantastic, we brought our own table runners, pashmina's, feather, lanterns, tea lights, mirrored tea light holders, etc.... we paid them $150 in cash and they set everything up, accommodated for the wind and we loved what they did.

Don't worry about a thing once you are there... it will be great!

If you have any questions just ask, or pm me. I will try to be more accessible than I have been.

Big hugs to all you beautiful brides.

The only reason I ask is that the hotel completely screwed up our check in sad.gif. They gave our room to friends of ours (AND it was the wrong room category all together), and all week they were getting their room decorated with rose pedals, swan towels etc. Anyways, my sister was pissed and she went to talk to someone the night of the wedding - which is how she found out they screwed up the check in. They told her that they wouldn't decorate it because it wasn't part of the package!? Just seemed weird to me. She convinced them to send a maid to the room who she had to seriously tip to do what she wanted lol. So I was just curious..... I guess I just automatically thought they would have done it?!

Sorry for the delay, but here are the pictures of the "Will you be my bridesmaid?" message in a bottle. I painted the boxes silver and created a little address label that has my name address, the bridesmaid's name and address, and our wedding logo. They loved them! Oh for some reason, the sand looks almost red in these pics, but it was the same fuchsia/hot pink color I am using.
