We are Olympus fans!
Do you mind me asking which company you are renting your car through? I read some horror stories about the rental car companies at the Cancun airport and would like to hear your experience if you've rented from there in the past.

LOVE THESE! Did you use, big and something.com ? I made inspiration boards for everything, love your whole color scheme and feel!
Could you please send me pictures of your reception location? ? ? I would love to see them because I am currently trying to decide between the location you mentioned, Plaza Zavaz, and a beach wedding. The only reason I am hesitant to have it on the beach is because I read that it gets really windy there in the evenings and I believe others said their guests were cold on the beach. Can you think of any other cons or pros of a beach reception you may have witnessed while there that I should keep in mind for our guests? My 85 year old grandmother will be there and I want to ensure that she is comfy....although I'm sure she'll probably turn in when we start dancing.
Oh and I cannot take any credit for the inspiration boards! I found those two online at past sites I have visited just for gingerlover because she said her FI sprung new colors on her. :-) I've been cruising photos for the past 2 weeks trying to nail down our color scheme. BUT, I did make one for Meredith that I was pretty proud of but for her's I used photobucket. What is this big and something that you speak of? ? ? Details, details! ;-)

I'm sure you'll get what you want (it's still waay early). Ours is at Plaza Zavas. I'm not sure if the Zocalla location is still available for Private receptions but our WC pretty much said this was the option for outdoor/private/covered space for dancing etc.
Thanks for helping clarify that for me ladies! I think I'll wait and see if I feel that premium is worth the difference b/w the $950 Pearl Pckge and the "Free" Package (hardly free if you think of it that way hahaha).
Hmmmmm, decisions, decisions......I just don't know enough about the 3 sites to make a selection yet. Any advice? We have 10 months until our day and now have 33 guests booked, so all indoor options are out for me.
I too am waiting to get our room total back from our TA before I decide on the package. Because if the premium is $3,500 for a week and the average room is $2,000 a week, than it makes no sense to go for the so called "Free."

I've heard of other girls buying local things for their OOT bags in Cancun/Playa, and they've found things like maracas, chocolates, local cookies, etc. I don't remember seeing anything like that in PM.
Ohhhhhhh, thank you for the info on Puerto Morales! I really just wanted some maracas, especially for the kids. I had completely forgotten about that town! I was hoping to also get our photog to take some photos of us there for our TTD. Would you recommend it for that as well? I am looking forward to cruising around one day while there and taking in the small town flavor.
LOL! Go you!
