and I did also ask whether by having a party on a beach we can have a party for as long as possible (some of my guests can dance till the next morning), and the answer was pretty much no.

I suppose it could bother some guests that are staying close to the ocean, but then I wonder: Tiffany answered me that we can dance and have our reception at the same location, but having between 60-70 guests, we only have Beach, Roof Garden, Zocalo cocktail terrace, ballroom to choose from. Zocalo seems tight as it is. So what happens if we picked Zocalo for dinner? Are we moved for the dancing to the beach - including the tables and chairs?

You may ask how far in advance we should ship them, if we should put ATTN: to (one of them), should we put our names somewhere on the boxes so they know who they belong to, etc....

I sure do appreciate it!

P.S. If there are any other brides who will be there the same time as us (we will be there 4/29-5/7) and would like to use our centerpieces, let me know. You are more than welcome....let me know and I can send or post pics of what they will look like.
Thanks,
Tracy
I was told when I put down my deposit in October that we weren't allowed to ship anything to the resort ahead of time. The issue came up because my FMIL is a florist and wanted to know when and to who we could ship decorations to. I was told (by Nancy) that they don't want to be responsible for storing and securing things sent down especially given the number of brides they have during certain times. I hope you get a different answer than I did-if you do let me know! I had resigned myself to trying to find things for OT bags and centerpieces at local markets while I am down there and paying for what the resort could provide if I didn't find anything. I even thought about shipping it to myself right before I leave home for the resort but that seems like it would be a gamble to me. I will be there six days before the wedding, but I have never had good luck with international shipping.

Hey Tracy, Congrats on your wedding. I was told by my TA that Fabio had said you can't ship anything down ahead of time, due to customs etc. Maybe Paula will get you a diff. answer when she is down there, if she does can you also foward the answer to me, I would love to ship things down ahead of time but if we can't then I am going to have to relie on my BMs
good luck!

I am planning on asking that question at the site visit. However, I asked Fabio before about bring our own stuff down and this is what he said:

If we wanted to add a personal touch to the reception or
ceremony can we fly in our own candles or other additional items?


Yes you may bring your own items, please keep in mind:

No pre-shipments are allowed, please arrange for the items to arrive with you or your group.

Please be advised that all décor items must be ready to be set up. If assembly is necessary our onsite coordination team could apply a fee for décor.[/b]

What I was planning on doing is getting 1 day shipping and shipping it out the day before we left, therefore even if it comes a couple of days late it will still be before the wedding.

Hello Ladies! I was sent the initial contract to return with $200. The problem, the time give to me is 5p. I want an outdoor beach wedding. Isn't it dark in November by 5p? Would 4p be to close or should I push for 3p?

HI, wanted to know if you ended up picking this resort as we have the same wedding date! Exciting, I know that they only allow 2 weddings a day at the resort, how many people are attending your wedding and what time are you having it? Ours is booked for 5 pm so excited!

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
