      Oh my goodness!  That is absolutely gorgeous!  Can you please tell me the breakdown of cost for this?  I know I won't be able for afford it, but one can wish!!

I was also going to get some beach games like paddleball and what not. Plus I was toying with doing name tags based on where we know you from. For example: My FI Uncle would say "Russ" Jay's Uncle or a friend of mine from when I lived in Ocean City would say Samantha, Ocean City

        AZUL SENSATORI or AZUL BEACH BRIDES: Is anyone planning a Welcome Event?  If yes, what are you planning?  Looking for ideas!! :)

          Ladies, for those of who have done or are doing a welcome cocktail party, what time are you doing it?  I had thought about doing it, but figured a full dinner would be best so we could go into party mode afterward. And I wondered if a cocktail party would provide enough food.  I had kind of decided on just doing the Spoons reserved dinner, but am wavering on this now.  Thoughts???

           

          Thank you!

            That is so pretty!  What chairs did you use?  Are those the regular chairs or did you have to pay extra for them?

              Hi!

               

              Are you doing the Barefoot Beach Party during the day or evening?  Sounds fun! How much is it costing you per person for the food and open bar? Do they have a table there you can use for beer pong? My fiance loves beer pong! :) How many people are you having at your wedding?

               

              Thanks!

                  I am doing mine the day before at Palapa Yoga  from 4p-6p. It's $12.50 a person for food and drink private event (Mexican Donkey Cocktail Hour package)

                   

                  I am using my free SPOON 40 person dinner for a Family dinner 2 days before the wedding.

                   

                  I figure 4p-6p is perfect for the older folks that want to party, eat some dinner and turn in. Also I didn't want to be hungover for my wedding day so this gives me the opportunity to party and still get to bed at a decent hour. As for the Beer pong, LOL my FI and I have been to enough house parties that we figure we will just improvise when we get there. Back in the day I think I played beer pong on everything from a closet door to 2 tables spaced apart. I am bringing a sleeve of Solo cups and Ping Pong balls with me just in case the resort doesn't have anything. We are also big fans of Flip Cup which can be played on any table. Basically My FI and I wanted to have a old school beach college party and re-live our youth. My playlist I have been building has all the hits from when he and I were in college and great Bar sing along. My goal is to get everyone from all the different eras of our lives together and have fun so that everyone gets to know each other. We have currently 61 people coming. I am bringing some dominos and decks of cards too in case the beer pong thing doesn't pan out.

                    Ladies, If you want to look into clip in hair extentions for the big Day I just wanted to pass on that I have had a FABULOUS experience ordering from this site http://sweetextensions.com/

                     

                    I got a sample first then my hair stylist and I dyed it when it all looked good we ordered a full set and we are in the process of dying those. I will have my first trial run Feb 26th with Hair and make-up for my Bachlorette so I will let you ladies know how it turns out but so far so good

                      Congrats and welcome back! Glad everything went so well! How did the blood work go? We are doing a legal wedding too and I am concerned about getting my blood work done in Mexico. Also, I am not good with needles! Can't wait to see your full review! Btw, did you bring the mexican marriage certificate back to TO with you?
                       

                      Originally Posted by nv+gms 

                      We are back!  We had a sensational time at this resort and our events.  We recieved many upgrades without even asking. We stayed in a honeymoon suite ocean side and all of our guests were upgraded to the premium section.  I will post a detailed review in the next couple weeks but here is a summary of the events we had:

                      welcome cocktail reception at palapa yoga:  great canapes.  Our friend brought an amazing bose sound system and we danced a lot.  We also had a cigar roller which really impressed a lot of our guests. Very good security - they even tried to stop my sister from coming back from the bathroom b/c they said that there was a private event taking place!  LOL.

                      ceremony at beach zocolo:  wonderful location - still my favourite.  My guests told me that they even stopped people from crossing behind the ceremony.  Very important detail for brides who want a legal marriage at this resort - the ceremony CAN BE PREFORMED IN ENGLISH!  There was no problem with this - its not a requirement to have the ceremony in spanish at all!!!!  The judge was also open to adding anything we wanted before and after his "official speech".  He does have a script he has to say and the wording was fine to me - and again - it was spoken in ENGLISH!  (only emphasizing this b/c I know a lot of people on this forum have changed their decision to have a legal wedding in Mexico because they thought it needed to be spoken in spanish).  I added the hand ceremony and sand ceremony to our wedding and incorporated family.  One thing that took us by surprise is that you have to thumbprint your wedding certificate after you sign it - make sure you bring a wet nap to clean your thumb afterwards!  The judge had a dry napkin but it was hard to get the ink off our thumbs.  I was concerned that I may touch and damage my wedding dress - but in the end this did not happen. 

                      Reception:  @ plaza zavas.  Very nice location.  Food was family style and servers served guests individually.  The assortment was amazing and guests loved the variety.  The lobster tail was a big hit.  Food was plenty and seconds were abundant for those who desired.  Amplifier was rented - great sound.  The only thing that kind of sucked is that when your time expires - they are quick to shut it down and start removing all the linens, decor etc.- but I guess this is to be expected - we just moved the party to the mojito lounge.   We hired the mariachi band - awesome dinner entertainment.  Big hit with the guests and nice touch to the ambiance.  Our cake was a cupcake cake and it was fantastic - better than I expected.  We had a petit cake on top with our personalized cake topper (bobble heads to our likeness).  It was a hit with guests and no where near what I thought it would cost. 

                      Farewell group dinner at spoons:  awesome too!  Menu is std - ceaser salad, bean soup, choice of chicken and steak followed by cheesecake.  Great presentation and flavour.  Guests all complimented the food.  Only thing that happened is that some guests were really hungry when they got there and collected a few plates of snacks for the table from the buffet.  Apparently the servers did not look to pleased about this - but did not stop anyone from doing this.  The section they close off provides a cozy semi private area for entertaining your guests.  I think it makes a nice area for a wedding reception for those of you who are looking to save money by not hosting a private reception.  We were an hour late for our reservation - 7:30 instead of 6:30 - and they were still very accomodating. 

                      My biggest recommendation:  bring your own photographer if you can afford it.  Our photographers were amazing.   They captured ALL of our events and had no strict time limits. Other things they did for us: 

                      1.  Engagement photos at the tulum ruins

                      2.  Trash the dress #1:  used a long white dress from BCBG I purchased and we went to a cenote for some creative photography.  They got tonnes of underwater photos of us and photos that captured above and below the water line.  These are the photos I am looking most forward to seeing.  Even when we felt pressured to get back to the resort because of time constrictions - they kept encouraging more photos! 

                      3.  Trash the dress #2:  used the original wedding outfits - didn't trash them totally.  Lots of cool and amazing shots again.  Over 500 photos taken in this session alone.  LOL.  

                      Our photographer is from the Toronto area - and I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride!   

                      I can't wait to see all these pics and more! I will post some when I get them. 

                      Only thing I would do differently - stay longer!  Normally we are not fans of staying at an all-inclusive resort for more than a week but we wish we had chosen the 10 day option. Everyday we were busy with one thing or another and when we weren't - we were trying to spend time with all of our guests.  It left no alone time to unwind.  We decided to go away in April now...Even some of our guests requested info on extending their stay - a testiment to how nice it was to stay at this resort. 

                      Good luck to all the ladies that continue to plan their weddings!  I will post better details and photos in a planning thread as I find the time!

                      The room card was a martha idea as well that i thought would be fun for people.  Plus it will save sometime trying to figure out where everyone is since the resort is booked and some are on the family side and other on the adult.  This is what the card looks like. I formatted it so three will print on one cardstock. I hope this helps.

                      Jamie, I am bringing US dollars. Your Canadian guests can easily go to a bank and ask to buy some US currency. It's not a problem =)

                      About half of our guests are Canadian, so I wanted to give them the best direction possible.


                      Thanks!
