Thank you. We really did have a fantastic time!

 

 

The music was plenty loud.Not as loud as the DJ from the night prior, but it worked for us.  I bought a Logitech (Logitech S715i Rechargeable Speaker for iPod and iPhonespecifically for the event because it was battery powered. For some reason I was under the assumption we would not have access to a power outlet.I had much wireless speaker system (ac powered) that I could have brought with me and plugged in for the ipod... oh well! :-)

 

My reception was at the Maracas Terrace. This location is kind of off to the side of everything. Unlike the Mundaca Inlet where we overheard the music danced with the other bride, the Maracas Terrace is blocked off and semi-secluded. It is a little windy though because it right by the water.

 

Our cocktail hour was not private. We just went into the lobby bar, took pictures, and waited. We didn't have any issues. The walk from the Coba Gazebo to the Cove lobby bar was relatively short. Then from the lobby bar to the Maracas Terrace was pretty short too.  All three locations bordered the pool. My husband's grandmother was with us and she didn't have any problems walking between the three locations. Everyone pretty much stayed together. The reception started on time. I gave everyone an agenda for the three days most of my guests were there. They were aware of all three locations (Coba, Cove lobby, Maracas) and the times they needed to be there.

Hope this helps!

Questions:

I brought my own iPod dock and iPod for music and it worked very well.

 

How many guests did you have? Where was your private event held? 

I would love to bring my own iPod and dock to save about $400 but I am concerned it wouldn't be loud enough for my private function outside. 

Thoughts??

 

 

We sent everyone inside to the lobby bar for cocktails as we went with the photographer for pics.

So this was not a private cocktail hour, correct?  Did all your guests stay together?  We are considering this instead of paying for a cocktail hour so I just want to hear if there were any issues.  Was it far for them to walk to?  Did they all go to the reception at the right time?

 

 

Thanks!!

Shalanda-

 

Were you happy with the resort photographer?  That is all I have booked right now and I am having doubts based on other brides booking outside photography.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the review and pics Shalanda! I love how you had your groom meet you and walk with you. I've been considering something like that and its helpful to see someone else do it.

 

I was curious about the resort photographer too.

I was happy with the way our time with the photographer was handled and the locations/poses they chose. The pictures and video haven't been delivered yet though. We had them shipped so we expect them sometime next week. I will be sure to post some of them on here and make a link to our photoshare to view the full album once it arrives.

Hi Ladies!!  I know everyone is busy running around for the holidays but I just wanted to send you all a little hello and see how things are going.  I still have some shopping to do.  eek.gif

 

So besides the resort I have the second most major thing checked off my list - PHOTOGRAPHER.  smile159.gif 

I already decided on La Luna a long time ago but I finally signed the contract and made it official.  Feels so good.  That was the only thing I really needed to do for the next few months.  I'm gonna start working on my passport invites in the next few weeks since work will be a little slow.  Besides that I don't have much to do for a while.

 

How is everyone else doing??  How are the new Mrs. doing??

Hey There!

Glad to hear you have secured your photographer. Can't wait to see your passport invites...

I am anxiously awaiting the delivery of my photos and video from the resort! Other than that, I am loving married life...trying to finalize things for my AHR the first weekend in January. Its been crazy trying to get a head count because people won't send in their response cards. How hard can it be? I stamped and addressed the response envelopes! How hard can it be to fill it out and put it in the mail? Gheesh! LOL. Sorry for the vent...

Anyhoo, Christmas shopping is done. We just need to decorate the tree and RELAX! pinkie.gif

Maybe its me but I can't seem to view them.  I only see 1 pic from the link you just posted.

 

Glad you are enjoying married life.  I can only imagine how annoying it must be to not have ppl responding to your invites...especially when you make it so easy for them.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
