    Not for the $1300 they want for it! I think my brother would rather do it and I'd slide him a little $$$ towards his travel costs! I'm loading my ipod with playlists to use throughout the night. That way I know we'll have appropriate tunes, along with saving $1000.

      yes, i am having a dj. i will be providing him my ipod as well as a cd just incase. i think the $1300 is worth it so no one has to worry about working the music and the overall flow of the party.

          Do any of the past brides know if the sound equipment they have for an iPod is good enough for a crowd of 50, or would an iPod dock with speakers be better? I'm a little confused on this. Our crowd is really into partying and dancing after so I'm hoping the music will work well with us...

            Can anyone who has actually been to this resort give input on a venue for 66 people...we can't have the Plaza and from what I thought Zocolo was too small...but now it sounds like they are changing on that with this 50-70 ppl thing. Can you have a dance floor there? If not, I think we are just doing it on the beach if there are no other options.

            Also, for anyone who has somewhat larger groups, are you doing any other private rehearsal dinner/cocktail parties other than the events of the wedding day?

            And lastly!! (for now) Can you share your ideas for the actual out of town bag/boxes you are using? I can't seem to find anything I like!!!! Thanks for your help! :)

              I never told Tiffany an exact number of guests before I booked Zocalo Terrace I told her somewhere between 45-51 and she suggested the terrace and the Plaza. I would tell her that there's a chance you might have a few people coming with a day pass so that would make it 50. Then when you get there work with the on site people and tell them those people may or may not make it but you will pay the difference if needed to get the terrace. I heard the WC's at the resort are very accomodating and make exceptions when you get there but you still need to get it locked in before you go. Tell her you know a bride that has 45-50ppl on May 9th that got the terrace(Ali Speed). I told her it meant a lot to us to have a private intimate space instead of being in the middle of a busy resort and that we have 2 elderly guests and small children that need close proximity to bathrooms so it was extreemly important to us to get the Zocalo. I hope this helps. Make sure you also print the emails she sends you with confirmation and bring to the resort. It will all work out, I promise. Every bride so far has had a wonderful experience so I'm not worried. Good Luck!

                Don't even get me started on this Zocalo business...One day she tells me I need at least 40 people. The very next day, I am told it is now 50-70. If they are going to do 2 weddings a day we need OPTIONS. I have never wanted a beach reception. So for now we are booked in a banquet room, but I'm still working on Zocalo.
                We are paying a good amount for these weddings and the inconsistency and the inflexibility is nerve wracking.
                I told you not to get me started!

                You won't need to rent a dance floor for there because it is a concrete patio.
                Why can't you have the Plaza?
                It appears to be a lot larger than Zolcalo.
                I'm beginning to wonder if she has them confused?!?!

                  yes, we are having rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. we are doing the petite gourmet (bbq) on the beach. mexican themed - got the donkey and some other mexican things. just using an ipod since most of the time someone will be on the mike. we have 100 guests.

                  this is what we are doing for OOT bags, but with our logo on it. wanted to keep it simple and didn't need to add another project to my list. i got a sample, they look great! i am going to wrap them up in celephane and attach a schedule/letter. let me know if this interests you and i will put you in touch directly with my printer/friend at the company.

                    Hello Girls, I have not been on here much, I am usually under shoes 4moi but switched email address (getting married 4/4/09. As for the DJ, I got them to send me some sample lists which were great. Almost every song from my ipod was on the lists from the other brides who used the dj. They let you add and delete from it to make your own playlist for the dj. Having the list really helped though.

                    I have started doing most things through Lomas, a lady named Valeria has been extremely helpful and answers all of my emails within 24 hours! Fabio on the other hand has not returned any of my phone calls. My mom left a nasty message and is giving him until noon. Who knows what will happen if he doesn't get back to us by then! He promised to get back to me with questions answered and confirmations for food, decor...... about 2 weeks ago, and nothing! I am clueless to what it is costing me so far! and in the meantime, they moved an Azul fives bride to the sensatori on the same day and gave her first pick of venue! so I am stuck with the beach.

                      Wow, this is really turning into a shmozzle!

                      I heard that if you have your reception at Zocalo your guests have to share the bar with the hotel guests...is this true? If so, definitely a turn-off unless you can negotiate a private bar set up for your group. Has anyone seen this spot? From the pics I've seen it looks really tight for a group of 50...and is there a good spot for a dance floor?

                      For the beach, which is where I've been leaning towards having my reception, do you think it's really necessary for a tent? I'd prefer to look up at the stars, but if it's really that windy...AHHH! I'm driving myself crazy with this too!

                      We have between 40-50 too...final numbers won't be known until September, but of course like many of you I am feeling the pressure to get something locked in because I've been told there is another wedding the same day and I of course want my choice!

                      Does anyone have any insight on beach receptions THANKS!
