The waiters and bartender were fantastic!
The amp worked so well for our group. We didn't expect it, but there was a staff member handling the amp/ipod the whole time. So during dinner, he just played our Dinner playlist. And we had a number of speeches during dinner, so he just faded the music out, let the MC/guests speak, and then faded the music back on. Same thing after dinner, he just started our Dance playlists, and when people wanted to use the mic, he just faded the music. It worked out wonderfully! And everyone, since we had a large party, could hear the speeches/music.
Bouquet....here was my only slight disappointment in the wedding. I had wanted specific colors (didn't care about flower types, just the colors). It was to be a tribute to my mom (she could not attend due to illness). Anyway I wanted to have matching colors to her bridal bouquet. So I sent photos and had them list the colors in the detail sheet (purple, pink and white). Anyway I ended up with pink, different pink and white. Still beautiful flowers...but my only disappointment! But my bridesmaids came to the rescue, they ran around the resort, found a bush with pretty little purple flowers, plucked some and inserted them into my bouquet
Technically no. But play dumb...do not tell your WC about this plan. And then when you arrive at the resort talk with the onsite coordinators. Many brides, myself included, leave items behind (I left 8 vases there!) The only thing is, 1) be prepared to pay a small rental fee (which the price my guess will be completely random, depending on who your onsite WC is); 2) the vases may not be what you expect, ie. if you want square and get round; 3) they may not all match, depending on how many you need. But what I do know is the onsite WC will bend over backwards to make it the wedding of your dreams, so to help with this little vases issue should be easy for them!
(in the meantime, if they can't help you, I think it's in my review, but in Cancun there is a party supply place where we bought 8 vases for $12 US total)
I would think bubbles should work. You just have to blow with the wind, not into the wind LOL!
I would bring down small bubble containers for the kids (not just your niece...) and it should be fine. You can find small bottles of bubbles usually at the dollarstore.
Someone asked about the packages. We ended up selecting the "free package" and added on items. It still was cheaper for us in the end and we had what we wanted. Be sure to really see what is included in each package and what you will or will not use.
Melissa - less than 2 weeks! I am so excited for you
