    How many people are traveling with you?  Have you picked/reserved anything besides your date with the resort?  I agree, they are WAY overpriced!  I am doing the complimentary package and just bringing orange chair sashes for the ceremony.  They will be giving me an alter flower in place of my bouquet.  I am also bringing orange and white lanterns to hang from the pandero terrace for our cocktail party.  Other than that, really the only other stuff I'm bringing are my gifts, OOT bags and bouquets.

          Hey Girl! We have a total of 47 guests plus me and the groom. We are so super excited. We leave in 21 days! I am bring my OOT bags, an ipod docking station, cake topper, toasting flutes, cake servers. I still haven't ordered my chair sashes. Do you know if they will set those up for you at the ceremony and/or reception??? I'm just worried we will have to do it ourselves and when in the world will we find the time!!??

           

          I also haven't decided where to have the ceremony...anyone have a suggestion for me?

          We are doing the complimentary package and adding on the horse and carriage ride and the harpist. I hope it's worth the money. We are keeping the complimentary wedding cake and just having the servers cut the cake in 49 pieces instead of 35. lol I figure we are having the Italian buffet for our dinner and that comes with a bunch of different desserts so why pay to upgrade the cake right? Thoughts on that??

           

          What private events is everyone having? We are doing a welcome dinner the night before the wedding, a breakfast the morning of and the cocktail hour and reception. I've been emailing Cristing (WC) alot lately and she hasn't been responding very quickly. Does anyone know if they have a rehearsal for the ceremony?

            If you are looking for a place to get your sashes, I used cvlinens.com.  I have heard from girls in the past that you just bring your decorations to the wedding planning meeting and they will take care of setting everything up for you -- including lanterns, sashes, etc.

             

            The sun sets in June in Riviera Maya around 730ish.  I am getting married a few weeks after you and my wedding time is 5pm.  If you want more sunset pictures, you could go for 6pm, but I think 5 is perfect --- unless you were hoping for during the day?

             

            We are doing the horse and carriage and harpist too!!  As far as the cake, I believe they will make the size based on how many guests you have, so you should be ok with more people.  I'm not paying to upgrade my cake either.

             

            The only real "private" event I'm having is a welcome cocktail party on Thursday night.  I planned a "play day" at Playacar Palace for anyone who wants to go with us to the beach on Friday, and I planned a farewell lunch/pool party for Sunday before everyone leaves.

             

            As far as a rehearsal, I don't believe they actually 'conduct' one.  I think you are on your own with that. Is everyone planning a rehearsal dinner with your bridal party???  I was sort of on the fence with this one...
