Hi ladies and welcome Irene!!
Jess- I have not even been given the choice of tres leches cake...we have lonly been given the choice of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, fruit, lemon, or cheese. Did you pick chantilly or fondant for the icing?? Also Jess, did you have to pick a set menu for your guests at Mundaca or could people just order whatever they want from the menu?
So Mercedes emailed me back and I feel like she contradicts herself from one email to another...it's so frustraing because I don't know what to believe! She has us arriving on the completely wrong day and had me down for a certain wedding gazebo and that we had 22 people attending and I NEVER told her any of that, so I just don't get it! Maybe she's confusing me with another bride the week before us?? Who knows!
Mercedes suggested the Maracas terrace for our cocktail hour...anyone familiar with this area? I asked to see pictures of different areas and she didn't send them. Now I'm seeing why people get so frustrated, but I'm trying to keep my cool and know that everything will work out once we get there:)
Does anyone know for sure that we DO NOT need a marriage certificate for a symbolic ceremony? Mercedes said that we don't need one, but all the emails say we do. I just don't want to get down there and not have what we need.

I would probably suggest giving a half hour between your ceremony and cocktail party. After our ceremony we had the champagne toast, mingled a little and then did family pictures, so that would be wasted time for a cocktail hour to start I think? Maybe it depends on how big of a group you are having? I only had 16, so everyone was involved in some way with family/group pictures.
We got tres leches for our cake and LOVED it.
As far as the photog goes, I just told Yesenia who we were using and she "approved" him as an outside vendor, then I just had to pay for a visitors pass for him for the day. I used Octavio Montes and was VERY happy with his work and pricing.
