    I also plan on bringing our own personalized runner - what length of runner do you plan or purchasing or did you purchase? :)

      ummm I believe the one I bought was 100ft, but Wilma said the aisle itself is around 41 x 6.3 feet.  I already helped Shalanda (sgray) make hers, I just can't remember how far down we went with the design!! We are going to be working on mine soon!

        I am also doing the complimentary package.  I plan on decorating with turquoise chair sashes, turquoise fans on the chairs for the guests, possibly a starfish hanging on the end chairs like Jessica said or some other type of decoration to line the aisle and possibly their beige aisle runner.  Still thinking about the table in the gazebo.  It will already have our sand ceremony on it so I do know if it needs more.  With all the amazing and beautiful pictures I have seen from past brides I think less is better for the ceremony.  I just plan to have all my decorations be multi-purpose so they can be used for the ceremony and reception.

          Are you using the same chair sashes for the ceremony and reception?  I just worry about getting them from the ceremony to the reception and having them set-up in time?

           

          Jess- how did you make your aisle runner and how are you getting it to mexico?

            The setting against the water is truly decor enough...it is SOOOOO beautiful. But I also went with chair sashes. I used the sases at both the ceremony and my reception. There was no problem with getting them from one location to another. There is an entire staff that breaks down/sets up the wedding events. The process was seamless. As Jess said earlier, we worked on the aisle runners together. I wasn't able to use mine because it was too windy. Wilma was upset that she couldn't make it work for me...but it wasn't that big of a deal in the end. And I didn't spend much on it since I bought it blank and personalized it. I carried the aisle runner in it's box on the plane with me...along with my dress. There were no issues.

              Welcome and congrats!!  You can check your date availability on their website!  The first thing to get through is reserving your date and deciding if you want a package or not.

                We hung the aisle runner on the wall (not the easiest task!) and projected the image onto it.  From there we used a fabric marker to copy the image into the runner.  I haven't actually figured out if it will fit or not, but I was kind of hoping that I could put it longways into my biggest suitcase!?!

                  Hi Ladies!

                  I'm a complete wedding newbie. Thanks for all the amazing information! We are getting married at the Aventura Cove Palace on July 30th this year and beyond buying my dress (YAY!) we have done absolutely nothing! Yikes! I have asked for a wedding kit and spa services menu from the resort but they have said that they won't send one out to me until 60 days prior to the wedding. Does anyone have a wedding kit that they can email me please?

                  We'd really like to have some idea about the wedding locations they offer, menu's flowers etc. I feel like leaving it to 2 months before the wedding will be cutting it too close.

                   

                  Thanks for any help

                  Simone

                    We hired the trio for our cocktail party on Pandero and all my guests said they were entertaining. They only played for 45min and as we were taking pics at the Coba gazebo we couldnt hear them. If I had to do it again, I wouldnt spend the money. I would just bring my own music. In the end, our final bill was way too high. i went overboard with all the little details so in retrospect it wasnt worth it for us. But, again, my guests said they were good and some even took pics with them.

                      Thanks.  I was talking to my FI the other day about it and he doesn't really think it is worth the money (we were quoted $515).  It is only going to be 20 of us there, and it is our welcome party, so the majority of us will be filling the time with talking I feel like.  We may just try to do the Ipod thing and hope for the best.
