OK, trying not to hyperventilate at the moment.....
so here's my reply from Tiffany to my questions about photographers and options for eating and reception.....
"The approved photographers are Matias Cano and Caribe Photography. Below are their links.
Caribe Photography = Caribephoto
Matias Cano Photography = professional wedding photojournalist photographer in riviera maya
The following are the locations where you can have your private events at.
Plaza Zavaz –
Polapa Yoga –
Zocallo Cocktial Terrace –
Plaza Zocallo –
Pool Deck –
Zavaz Cocktail Terrace -
The options above are for a private reception where you will have to pay for everyone. If you would like to just use the dinner reservation that is included in your package, you can however, this will not be a private event. This dinner will be at the Spoon Restaurant which is the only restaurant that we have for this reservation. (see spoon restaurant pic from the site...haven't learnt how to attach!) Behind the curtain is a private area, the on site team tries to offer this to wedding couples. However, it is not always available to give. Please keep in mind that if you do have this private area, you will not be able to have your own music or lighting. If having a first dance together or the other customary dances, you must have a private reception and pay for each guest."
I'm confused....I thought we would be able to eat (for free) in the spoon restaurant for food and speeches etc, and then have our reception/party in one of the areas....have I clearly got that wrong
does that mean if I want to guarentee (sp) that we have some sort of area that we have to pay for everyone to eat again
if we are forced to fork out those prices I think I'm going to cry
( we are having a big reception when we get back and thats already costing us an arm and a leg - there's no way we can afford to do both.
