We were planning on just bringing an ipod dock also and creating our own reception after we have dinner. Does anyone have any good advice on some space somewhere that would work out well for an impromptu thing like this? There's only going to be about 20 of us so we will not need a lot of space, but we also don't want to worry about bothering others either.

We had a private reception so we didn't use any restaurant. And it lasted from 6-10. I think any function outside with music has to be over by 10 pm. If you're doing the included dinner at a restaurant, they don't let you have your own private music...so no point in renting any music gear/DJ...you'd have to do a private function to have music and dancing.



How many people do you have coming and where is your reception going to be? We brought our ipod dock (to have music in the rooms) and we brought it out for a welcome cocktail function the night before the wedding at the Pandero Terrace and although we thought it would be loud enough...it wasn't at all. Once people started talking and laughing and getting loud, it completely drowned out the music plus the wind and the ocean...it was like not having music at all. Luckily, they were having a fiesta on the resort so we got authentic Mexican music otherwise we would've been SOL that night in terms of music.
We are having around 25 people (give or take). We tried to book the Pandero Terrace for the cocktail reception after the wedding but it's booked already so Dulce reserved another Terrace near the Coba gazebo and next to the Mundaca restaurant where we are having our dinner. The terrace looks like it might be on a roof or maybe on the Mundaca roofhuh.gif? I have a picture of the terrace but dont have the name of the terrace...

I was a little torn with having a private reception and just doing the dinner reservation but if we have more people we will go the private reception route.

amywuts,

 

Depending on when the wedding is you may be able to get away with having it in one of the pool areas. Many of the pool areas were completely dead at night when we were there. Also you have the option of going to the disco. We didn't have a private reception but instead just took over the disco after dinner and it was a blast! There's a bar in there and the DJs know instantly that you're a wedding party so they run around and have fun with you. We had so much fun doing this.

Nam or anyone else that has had Del Sol - I know you had Del Sol. I believe you had Vincint and Sol. Did you book both or Did one just show up? I was wondering how they decide who you photogher's assistant is. Did you meet with them the day before the wedding to go over stuf

 

Has anyone booked the marachi band at ASP? Is it worth the money? Also how are the fireworks?

My contract was just with Vincent. They have 2nd shooters that they use already...it's not usually Matt and then Vincent as a backup because they are both 1st shooters if that makes sense. The second shooter still came with Vincent and they pretty much just hold and direct the flash/light. They probably won't tell you this until a day or 2 before the wedding.
Sol came as a treat...she didn't have another wedding that day so they called me the day before asking if it was ok that she came and if I could secure an extra day pass.
Nope, I never met them until they walking in my room while I was getting ready and started shooting pictures. They'll send you some forms to fill out before the wedding that asks questions about what you want. But generally, they have such a great style that I left it up to them.
I didn't get the mariachi band but I did get the Mexican Trio for the cocktail hour. They were a lot of fun...good entertainment :) a bit pricey but I was happy with them for sure.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
