    A quick update from us: We had an awesome time yesterday. We ended up having the reception in the ballroom due to a high chance of rain, but it worked out really great. We went through a detailed list of our vision for set up and decorations and the WCs executed it perfectly. We had some benefits that we hadn't thought of due to the reception being inside: A/C (especially great since we had an epic 70-person 2+ hour dance party), no wind so people weren't struggling with their hair or papers during speeches (and everyone could hear really clearly), no mosquitos (everyone had a few bites from the cocktail party we'd had outside the night before), and close access to the coffee station in the lobby when people wanted a quick shot of caffeine after dinner. We also were stumbling distance from the Mojito bar when the after party continued past 11. What a great night!!!!

        I thought I would also mention for those who are concerned about the lack of a gazebo at Plaza Zavaz... I really don't think there are too many drawbacks from not having a gazebo. The area is surrounded by a bunch of tall palm trees. There are ropes strung above and between the palm trees. Therefore, any decorations you may have planned using the gazebo (wrapped lights, hanging lanterns, etc) should still be able to be executed. I actually think in some respects that not having the small gazebo there would better - we were originally worried about sight lines for our slideshow and our speeches. They started to set our reception up there before we moved into the ballroom, and I think it would have been great! If I see any other weddings there in the next week and a half, I will try to grab some photos.

        yycStacy,

         

        Congratulations! So glad to hear that your backup plan worked out perfectly. I can't wait to see pictures :) I nearly had a heart attack seeing plaza zavaz in shambles but it's reassuring to know that other options work out great too. Thanks for keeping us all posted.

          Looks like a wedding is going ahead at Plaza Zavas tonight! The photo doesn't do it justice since it is light out and only set up, but I think it will look great!Posted Image

            That looks really nice actually! Especially if you have lots of paper lanterns to hang up. Thanks again for the pictures Stacy.

            Question for all you ladies... Has anyone used or is anyone planning on using the Gobos (the light projected onto the dance floor with your initials)? Just wanted some feedback whether or not it's worth it.

            Never heard of Gobos, but everytime I mention stuff like that the FI will say "do we really need it?"  Sorry I couldn't help more LOL
