Hey Ladies! We have been at the resort for 3 days now....and it has been crappy weather...but it is a beautiful resort. We flew into a storm. It is getting better each day, so please, please, PLEASE, keep your fingers crossed for us that it doesn't rain on Thursday! Even though it has been raining a lot, it is still super gorgeous. Our travel agent, The Wedding holiday, was super nice and got us a private cocktail reception (not at our expense) so that was a lovely surprise when we met with the wedding coordinators today.
I will keep you updated as to how everything goes...I am in my room as I have had a little too much to drin'k!! lol it is my bedtime.

In any event, I do not think you will know the menu until you get to Mexico. If you use that meal for your reception, know it is not a private event and I am not sure the extent they can decorate for you. There will also not be an area of rmusic & speeches designated. Of course if you have a small group, you can always do speeches at the table - and Azul will give you a private area of the dining room - you just dont get the entire thing.
We had our welcome dinner yesterday. It was a set menu, which we could not change, but it was delicious and everyone loved it! THey spelle dmy last name wrong on the menu cards that were set out at each place setting, so they brought in a harpest to make up for it. They are wonderufl and fixing mistakes and compensating you. We had a cesear salad, potato soup, and choice between chicken or beef, and cheese cake for dessert. Everything was soooo good, except for the cheese cake, but we just went and got different desserts from the buffet.

Anyways, anyone who has been married there, I am thinking of having my reception in the area by the pools and I was wondering if anyone had had their reception here, if so, what kind of lighting was supplied if any. I am not wanting big center peices and I remember one bride saying she didn't have center peices and they put candles on the table anyways. There is a thatched roof structure and I was wondering if they put any lighting under there or do I need to ask(and pay) for that. Thanks!!
That is where we are having our reception if the rain stays away. They don't provide additional lighting unless you pay for it. I have heard they put tea lights out as well, but my online wedding coordinator told me they cost money, so we brought our own anyway. We are paying for tiki torches to provide additional lighting.
