Don't sweat the details!  They have it down!  This place is amazing and all of my 57 guests had the time of their lives!

     

    I brought down A Lot of stuff and my set up fee was a bit more than I expected. $250 for everything.  I was planning on $150 like I heard so many times on this forum... guess I overdid it a little.  We had the sky wedding which was beautiful but very windy.  I would recommend it if it fits in your budget, but the zocalo beach gazebo was beautiful too.

     

    I'm from California and apparently we tip a lot.  I had a hard time not tipping and it really added up for us.  I'm sure I overdid it but I figure they deserve it.  You definitely get better drinks when you take care of the bartenders.

     

    I'm going to be selling some stuff after I return, so be on the lookout if you see something you like in my pics.

     

    My reception was at Plaza Zavas and i recommend it.

     

    If you have any questions feel free to ask.  I gained so much from this forum and wouldn't have had the wedding I had if not for it.  Now I want to share my experiences to help future brides.

     

    here are some photos...

    Your wedding looked beautiful and your pictures came out amazing. I was wondering what package you received from Caribe?

      @ Dawndean did you use real flowers or silk flowers, what company did you use?

We knew when we did destination that not everyone was going to be able to make it because of financial reasons and we were ok with that because this is what we really wanted for our wedding. If people can't make it because of money reasons then they should just decline politely and not complain about it , that's just not cool. And flights totally are expensive right now which is super annoying!!!! Vent anytime that's what we are here for ;-)

        Thank you.. It just becomes stressful when the people complaining are your mom and sister.... Thank you for your advice and listening....

          we didn't give a year notice but we gave them time but we have been engaged for 5 years. It is about time we do what we want... Thank you...

            I put them together from different places. I loved them.  took me a long time to figure out what I wanted. They were a pain to transport but worth it in the end.  Thanks.

            I'm going to be selling them if you're interested.  I have enough to make 8 centerpieces.  All you would need is to get the stones that go on the top which are really inexpensive.  They got mixed in with the sand and I didn't separate them when taking them apart.

              I don't remember the package name but it was 4 hours.  Whatever that one is called.  I think it's the only one for 4 hours.  javier was the photographer.  Very nice.

Is that free?

                How much is wifi? Is there a group rate or a discount for large groups?

                You can eat as much as you want!  Breakfast is served at a couple of places and if you want to eat 2 or 3 breakfasts you can.  Bride and groom get complimentary wi-fi.  There isn't a group wi-fi rate and I believe wi-fi was around $10 per day.

                 

                You don't need reservations for any restaurant except for La Chique (sp) which we didnt go to.  Otherwise, you don't.  It's not easy to get a large group together at the restaurants. We had to split up at different tables which wasn't a big deal.  room service is free but I do feel that the servers expect a tip..some will hang around waiting.  These people work very hard and long hours, we felt they deserved a tip even if small each time we ate.  That's just me.  Also, if you tip your bartenders you will get way better service!

                 

                Hope this helps.

                  My boquet was silk and I love it!  It was ordered through ebay from a company called ebloomingdesign I believe.  Very reasonable and worked with me to get exactly what I wanted.  The bouquet over the gazebo was from Lomas and it was probably the only thing I didn't love.  The daisy's were not really what I wanted and it was $70.  Lomas is a rip off but I couldn't bring something that large down to mexico.

                    Thank you for answering my questions, Murmel and DawnDean.

                     

                    Nobody mentioned anything about bride and groom getting complimentary wifi.  I've asked Erika but she did not mention complimentary wifi for bride and groom. She told me to speak with the onsite coordinator.

                      Let me back up.. we had the free sweet wedding package and it was included in that package.  I would assume that it's included for all brides but I can't say for sure.  I assume since ours was the free package that all others would have it included as well.
