Also they say that is you book for 2012 now you get 2010 rates. Again this was my first email dealing with them so I am sure more investigation needs to happen. I was pleased with the email!
I heard about the Donkey... It is no longer available at the resort due to some complaints about animal abuse. But at cost, I heard you can bring the donkey outside of the resort.

Yes, iPod radios in all the rooms but good luck getting one that works! We were late for 4 wedding appointments before we realized ours was 20 minutes slow with no way to change the time. Of our guests that tried to hook in their iPods, none worked.

We had a late night session on the beach! They absolutely don't mind. They shut off the lights at night, but we ran across one of the security guys and he turned them on for us. It's nice soft blue lighting.

Oh yeah, AmyB, but you can play music through the TV's. Sweet flatscreens. We had all our wedding music backed up to CDs so we just listened to that in our rooms.

Amy was supposed to have the donkey - I am supposed to have him too. I picked the resort based on # of rooms, allowing children, and having a donkey w/ barrels of beer at the cocktail reception - and not necessarily in that order! HA!!!

Through the TV by using CDs or iPods? I might have my brother bring some speakers if thats the case then! And I need to make some "girls getting ready" CDs if the iPod dock is not going to work!

They said the hotel was not filled with kids the week of our wedding (next week) so everyone will get the cribs and strollers they need and they can get babysitters or play time any time they want during the week. She also said they knew about our group and are all expecting our arrival!!!

Then she also called a restaurant the hotel recommended in Cancun and made the reservation for 28 of us for the Thursday clubbing tour we are doing. They are going to put us in the best spot by the band and dancers and will have pitchers of margaritas and munchies for us when we arrive. She said they were pleased our hotel recommended them and they will do everything they can to accommodate us and make sure we have a great time.

SERIOUSLY - how can i NOT cry with all of this? I am crying just typing it! Who knew weddings were so emotional??!!

The weather right now is to die for, seriously you'll be so pleased! We had our reception at Zocalo al Fresco the covered open air restaurant patio and we were all sweating and hot all night because we were dancing. The whole wedding party even arranged with my photographers to do a group shot of them jumping in the pool afterwards which was hilarious. We even crashed the adult swim up bar for the after party to my wedding... since it was closed we all raided our fridges for the Tecate light they stock it with and hung out there for awhile to cool off, then partied up at the Mojito lounge until 4am.

The cigar roller was great. It wasn't a surprise, FI actually insisted we get one :) I wish it would have been announced or something because he was so quiet and there rolling away and I didn't even know. I actually had to start dragging people over because they didn't notice he was there and people were asking me after he had already left where I got my cigar that I was smoking... the whole thing. They gave me boxes after he left so I just put them on my table and had them go grab whatever they wanted.

My bridesmaid Shawna took that and 200 of the pictures that are up on my FB, she's a talented girl who uses a run of the mill camera if you can believe it.

I was chatting with Katie on Saturday and she was still in Mexico supposed to leave Sunday. She thought she may have a couple day delay due to London airports being closed but didn't know. She should be back any day now. She told me she had a wonderful wedding as well and I saw a sneak of some of her photos, she looked gorgeous and is completely blissfully a Mrs. :)
Amy, How amazing! Im so happy for you!!! Who was your onsite coordinators? Was the pool warm/cold? (it was freezing when we were there) Was Mojoito bar the only bar/nightlife open while we were there... Thats all that was available while we were there and could never get a strait answer on the other bar being open(the teens club that sopposed to turn into a night club after 10pm, which never did sad.gif ) wish they could improve on that aspect...

I LOVE your pics and esp le blanc-----> how was that resorthuh.gifhuh.gif?

Amy, this all sound so great! I am so happy for you! I saw the pictures and it looked like everyone had a blast. I cannot wait to hear your full review but in the meantime, I have a couple of questions.

How many guests did you have? (I think I'll have around 60 and was going to have the reception in the Zavaz plaza but your recpetion looked great...wondering if that's still an option and if I have too many people. I don't think my WC listed it as an option. Bummer.)

How did you like your DJ?

And the Mojito bar stays open that late? Did you just tip really well and they satyed?

Thanks!!!

And again. CONGRATS!

CDs. Hmmmm, it's possible you could hook up an iPod to the TV but we didn't try. Possibly through the headphone jack. I don't recall seeing a USB output on the TV.

    • 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.
