    Ok, thanks. My WC gave me the health bar as an option for my cocktail hour, but, didn't mention for reception...now, I know why. Do you think it's too small for even a cocktail hour?
    Also, I am aware that La Isla may be an option for me if I have more than 75 people. I was there in May and so I've seen it before in case you can't find a pic. I really liked it!

      I loved La Isla for dinner. I would have had my reception there if it had been an option.

        La Isla is beautiful! if you have an option to have your reception there, I would def consider it! I totally agree with Mandy- that was one of my favorite spots.

        This is the only picture I have of La Isla-- it is the entrance-- it is a really nice, big, open space- and the food there was excellent!

          Hey guys, I'm planning on having my reception at Tucanes, I'm expecting 25-30 guests. Is this place suitable for this many people? Does anyone have any pics they wouldn't mind sharing of Tucanes..I would greatly appreciate it.

          Thanks,

            Thanks,

            I know Bre had her reception at Tucanes and Sol did her photography- so the pix are amazing-- here is the link to her slideslow.... her reception was just beautiful.
            del Sol Photography associate photographer Vincent

            We had our reception at Tucanes in May-- we had a total of 22 people- and it was the perfect space for that group of people! Bre had a private dinner there also, that looked fabulous-- but we just had the "free" dinner at Fuentes- and then moved to Tucanes for the dancing, cake cutting, etc... (we did the private chocolate fountain party for dessert at Tucanes). I don't yet have the "official" slideshow from Cancun Studios- but I have the link that just has all the pictures posted...
            Here is the link-- the pictures at Tucanes start on page 56... We only had photographer for the first half hour at Tucanes (we had him for 5.5 hours total)- so there aren't a ton of pictures from Tucanes- just the cake cutting and first dances...
            Vince & Shannon


            Hope this helps!

              Shannon, I was looking through your pics and I saw Mandy & Isaac in #280! They're sitting on the beach chairs, and Tim & I were on the beach bed behind them. It made me laugh as we were trying to be inconspicuous.

                LOL LOL LOL-- that is too funny!! I had to go back and look! Mandy must be in the hot pink bathing suit-- i love it! well her bathing suit matches my colors-- so we should have coordinated more! hehe--- that was a picture that I flew through bc it had our "randoms" in it -Vince's mom is the pretty lady in the long pink dress and then Vince's brother is in the dreds..The other 3 people were complete "randoms"- like 8th cousins-twice-removed. They booked at another resort and called the day we left for Mexico to say they were coming--- the day we left!! Good lord!! So we kinda avoided them most of the day- hehe...
                I wish I could have said hello to you guys! :)

                  Yep, that was Mandy! I had to go back to the pictures to look at your randoms. Isn't it funny how people think they will "surprise" you with their last-minute decision to come and expect you to be thrilled? What did you do about adding them to the dinner and reception? Oh yes, Vince's mom is a very beautiful lady - we had noticed her the day of the wedding. But of course, no one looked more beautiful than you did!

                    Awww thanks-- Vince and I have dated for 10 years-- so it was a long time coming! :) I was just happy (and really really nervous initially!)... I'm known as a tomboy to most, so I think just wearing a dress in general suprised people! :)
                    We had to add them to everything- it was kinda horrible. We had to pay for extra decorated chairs at the ceremony, we had to pay for them to be at the private cocktail party, we had to pay for them to be at the chocolate fountain party/reception at Tucanes, and then pay for the decorated chairs at Tucanes for them-- Vince's mom (since she had originally invited them-hehe)- paid for their day passes.. Valeria was really good- I was able to get an email to her from vince's laptop at the airport and then we checked in with the WC's onsite when we got there--(and paid then)-the resort was really accomodating -but it was an aggravating situation, for sure. There was an RSVP date on the invitation ... oh well! :)

                      Shannon, your pics are beautiful! I feel like I was there! Oh, wait, I was! I actually did wear a full shirt to your wedding, not just my swimsuit! Did you notice how Isaac was trying to pretend like we weren't there spying on you? Oh, and if you look at pic 279, you'll see Mom sitting on the beach bed. And you are just so stinking gorgeous!
