As for cake...we got the Tres Leches cake.  It wasn't listed as one of the options, but they had no problem giving it to us...and it was amazing!  They do adjust the size based on the number of guests you have, but I'm not sure how 'personalized' they will get without an up-charge.  All you can do is ask!

 

As for the 'private' events...You could definitely make a group reservation at a restaurant for your 'rehearsal', but know that there won't be a rehearsal, unless you conduct it yourself.  We called ours a "welcome party" on Thursday night and used our free cocktail party for that instead of after the wedding, so that we could enjoy it with our guests.  After the ceremony, our guests went back to freshen up and met at the lobby bar for drinks until it was time for dinner!

 

I didn't use the live-streaming..but the wifi isn't very strong at the resort IMO, so I'm not sure if it would fully work if you had someone do it for you?

Wow, thanks!  Definitely a lot cheaper and it's nice to make sure you can match everything!  And a $60 set up isn't bad at all!  Do you mind me asking where you had your ceremony and reception?

Not at all!  I had my ceremony at the Chichen Gazebo -- it has open sides and a beautiful wooden bridge that leads up to it.  Our reception was at the Mundaca Steakhouse.  We only qualified for a free cocktail party, and I wasn't interested in paying extra for a private event -- we had a group of 18.  Mundaca and El Greco can both make your reception very close to private if you are going to restaurant direction.

 

Feel free to check out my wedding photos and let me know if you have any questions!

Also any advise on sports to hold everything?  I would like to use the Terrza pandero for almost everything and the white structure for the dance floor....thoughts?

 

Any advise is appreciated!

Yes, you can bring your own decorations but they will charge you a set up fee.

My wedding is at ACP on October 20th (OMG that is really soon...) and I am in almost-bridezilla mode with my WC. Lots of questions, not a lot of answers. So I turn to you, you lovely brilliant women.

Some questions:

- Does anyone have the email address to book salon services in advance? I'd love to use this, as well as pass it along to guests

- Can you book excursions using your resort credit in advance? If so, I'd love an email address or protocol for this as well.

- Were any of your guests golf nuts? I'd love to get my golf men some information on where to go, tee times, and if they can use resort dollars.

- Cake? They say that the cake in the wedding package is for 30 people only- do any of you have sample size photos you can share? Will they work with your wedding colors?

- Did any of you try to get all of your guests together for an informal (read: not-paid-for) rehearsal dinner? we are using our complimentary private function for the reception (only have 67-69 room nights... grrrrrr) and would love to not pay for a dinner at an all-inclusive (seems redundant to me). How did you go about this? Could you request it in advance?

- Rather than booking a private cocktail function, could we all just crash one of the bars? Is there room? What's the protocol there?

- Did any of you do live-streaming? Do you think we could use the WiFi and do it ourselves?

 

Yes. Please forgive me. I am in full on, control freak zone.

Any guidance or Xanax you can give will be appreciated.

 

Thanks!!

 

Always,

Abby

They do not let you book excursions in advance.  

I'll send you my wedding website info later and it has all of the info on the golf on it.

If you look at some past post on this thread you can see a pic of my cake and the cake for 30 is more like cake for 70.  There was so much cake I had them serve it to the entire restaurant. Crashing at one of the bars is fine, but they don't serve food.  If you do have it at one of the bars, I would recommend the Martini Bar outside.  At least you'll have music.  We paid the extra $800 for a private function the night before the wedding and had a meet and greet cocktail party for 2 hours, private bar and too many eats. We held it at the Cove Terrace and we felt it was worth every penny!  We brought our own music.

 

Good luck

Hey ladies! Do any of you recent ACP brides know which of the private areas have a set up fee, and which you can use without a fee?

I'd love to not get my heart set on something and then find out I need to shell out $250 just to use it. LAME.

 

Thanks!

 

-Abby

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
