    Beautiful Set up!  If you don't mind me asking, how much fabric did you bring for the gazebo?  My colors are different, but I want to bring down my own fabric as well!  Where did you buy everything?

      Hi Ladies, sorry I haven't been on in a little while. So I will catch up a little.

      I have tried to answer a few posts....my replies are in red.

      1. I recall someone saying on here they don't do a rehersal for the ceremony, they meet up with the groom to go over a few things before hand (which scares me a little, Chris won't be on the most up and up like I would be, you know?)

      My wedding party aren freaking out a little...especially my german bridesmaid (they dont' have a wedding party in Germany).  Did any of you ladies just do one of your own?  Will they do one if you request it??  (does that mean you decide who stands/sits where....is there a side the bride is supposed to be on vs. the groom???)


      They do no offer a rehersal. However when you sit down with you WC, they run through most things. (ie. who will walk down the aisle, to what music, order, vows, guests seating, etc.) The minister/judge usually meets with the groom about 1 hour prior to the ceremony, to run through the ceremony, and any special requests, vows,etc.. I found it very helpful to have a friend who went to the meeting that reported back to me. That way at least I felt I knew what would happen.


      2.  Premium alcohol:  Is it served at any/every bar?  You just have to request it?  (does this include the private functions?)  Is it of extra cost?

      No extra cost. You just have to ask, since a lot is behind/below the bar. They had a good selection a the private function, but I really don't remember the brands.


      3.  Traveling with Alcohol....how does this work?  Do you just put it in your luggage???  (or did you buy it at the airport?)...I NEVER buy liqour at the airport, nor have traveled with it, so have no clue. 

      Thanks Maggie - do they not have waiters serving you in other parts of the pool? I just expected there would be, there has been at every other resort I've been to...or are you saying they allowed your guests to be at that pool/cabana? And right now NOBODY is staying in a premium room so we might not be at that pool at all I guess..

      The way they quickly figure out if you are premium guests or not,is the towel color. Regular rooms have blue towels, premium have brown towels. When we were there, anyone with a blue towel during the day, was politely asked to move to other pool areas, however after about 3 pm, they didn't seem to care. There are waiters/beach butlers for ALL the pools.  We got drink service everywhere we were on the resort,  however there are more around the premium section. Most times it was just faster to go to the bar yourself for a drink.

      We ended up using about 12 laterns in assorted sizes for the gazebo at Zavas plaza. Didn't use lights, just the LED throwies. (there is a forum in the DIY threads)


      How about the LED lights to go in the Paper lanterns, how does this work?

      We ordered the batteries and LED's from dealextreme.com and followed the instructions for LED throwies. Super easy. Then we hung the lights with fishing line into the paper laterns.

       Welcome home Mrs! Beautiful photos, can't wait to see more. You are just beaming in your photos and I really hope it all worked out in the end.

      Ladies, I need a quick opinion.... I just finalized my seating chart. We have 48 guests coming and were doing 6 tables of 8 people. Since it's a small wedding, I am putting families together instead of doing traditional all wedding party sits together, etc. Plus, my parents recently go a divorce so I am trying to make things as least akward for them and myself lol. But this means putting my dad, his girlfriend with my brother and my in-laws friend with his family. I don't think this should be a problem because my dad knows this guy but doesn't know his family. 


      Any thoughts? I just don't think I can set it up any other way to avoid conflict and also to keep everyone else happy. 

      We also did not do the traditional wedding party seating. Since most of our wedding party had spouses with them we just arranged the tables so that they could sit together. Our thought to the rest of our guests, as long as at least 2-3 people know each other on each table, they will be fine. For you, keep your parents seperated, but with some familar faces close by, and they should not be able to complain. Plus it's Mexico, nothing is really structured and after dinner, people can mingle, change tables as they please.

       Technically it's suppose to be all dinner restaurants. However jeans are completely acceptable. And the Mexican, Zoloco and Spoon you could easily get away with nice shorts. However swimtrucks don't count!

            Thanks for the compliments ladies!


            The tall vases were $60 each, including the flowers.  They transferred to the reception for centerpieces.  I was worried they would be too tall on the tables, but they ended up looking really cool! 

            I'd actually say that was the best deal I got from Lomas out of the whole wedding!

            Originally Posted by Mwise17

            Did you pay for each floral arrangement that sat on them, and the vases for rental?  or was it in a package?  (the $1300 gazebo set up perhaps?)


            Congrats again!

              The ocean was good for TTD, but the pool pics just seemed to turn out the best!  Plus, 4 of us in May had the same photographer, so you probably even notice a lot of the same poses.  :)

                I'm sure others have given you guys warning...but my onsite WC looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned the word rehearsal!  At the meeting I kept asking how we should all walk down the aisle and he would tell me "dont worry, i'll tell you what to do when the time comes".  This scared the heck out of me, so I decided on the order of people the day before the wedding, put it on paper, and distributed to everyone (including the WC).

                Then I took my girls and my parents the day before to let them practice.

                I did your same order except my groomsman went separate, then Talis followed after them.  Then the bridesmaids went alone right before me and my dad.


                Also, in case others didnt warn you... the officiant may try to convince your Fiance to face backwards through the entire processional (until you are actually standing there).  If he doesnt want to do this...its OK to say no.  Talis ended up facing backwards through the bridesmaids, then turned around right before I appeared at the top of the ramp.  I wouldve killed him if he missed me walking down the aisle!  :)

                Bride's Mom + 1 groomsmen ( I have one extra guy)

                5 Groomsmen + Bridesmaids in pairs

                2 Flower girls

                Me and my Dad.

                Wait, what about the groom? He goes first I guess w/ officiant (who will also hopefully be a friend!)


                This is going to be a separate set of research for sure!


                I would still like to walk through all of this with the hotel staff, I need them to be on the same page as me.

                  Here is the print out I gave to the onsite WC and my friend that stepped in to help if things started slipping.  We stuck pretty close to this timeline.
