I ordered some great collapsable Koozies for cans. I got them for about $3.30 each with a custom logo--it was cheesy, a guy passed out on a bar (almost) that says "I survived the Manahan Wedding 2009".

Fear not ladies, once you get down there the onsite coordinator and the Lomas Rep. really take care of you and go over every detail including a very thorough walk through of the resort. Although I know most of you are at the Sensatori and I ended up moving to the Beach, the services and coordination are very much the same. Some advice and things I have learned from my 14 month experience with my planning:
1) If you have any reservations and can spare the $$, I would highly recommend you visit the resort (s) in Mexico for a day or so. I would have saved myself a lot of heartache if I would have just done this. No one will ever be able to tell you or show you pictures of the "feel" of a resort. The Sensatori and Beach are so different from the overall look and feel and there would be no way I would have chosen what I did on verbal accounts only.
2) Prepare yourself for a plan B for flight delays, lost baggage and rain. I mentally prepared myself and although we had perfect weather, no flight delays and no lost baggage it helped me keep my sanity to have my plan B's in place in case it all happened.
3) Make sure to plan time away from family and friends, as much as we love them, you end up playing host and hostess for most of your wedding stay and this can be mentally and physically exhausting. We ended up staying 4 days after our wedding at another resort for our honeymoon. We really needed the down time.
4) When you get to the onsite coordinators, make sure you tell them in detail exactly what you want for those items that are super critical. As with anything, expect some small hicups but the things that are non negotiable, try to emphasize their importance. As an example, my flowers were super important, but I was flexible on other details. BTW, I used the tropical flowers (local to the area) and they were amammamaazzzzzzing!!!! I highly recommend them. Also, they tend to make the stems super long, if you prefer a certain length, be sure to specify that.
5) I brought down two full suitcases full of decorations, welcome bags etc. You don't need much as the setting itself is so beautiful. The other problem we had is with all my pre-packaged items they thought we were trying to sell something and charged us a tarriff. We paid only $25, but something to be aware of when you are going through Mexican customs. In retrospect, I think we probably would not have brought down so much stuff.
Please PM me if you have any questions. I won't be checking this forum as much as normal since I am in 15 hour days at work beginning Monday.
Good luck to all of you and I know your weddings will be amazing.
