        I'm not sure if you were asking another Amber, but my name is Amber, so I will answer your question! We got married in the Tulum Gazebo which is on the Spa side, so unfortunately my pics won't help you with that. We did have cocktail hour at the Cove Terrace and dinner reception at Mundaca Restaurant which are both on the Cove side. We absolutely LOVED the Cove Terrace for Cocktail Hour...I will try to find some pics and post them. We were married last December, so I'm not sure if anything changed since then or not. We are in the process of planning our trip back for our 1 year anniversary!! Can't wait to return...it was such paradise

          That you amberm390 and Matt!  Amber - any pics you have would be amazing, thank you!  I think we are decided on the maracas inlet for the ceremony, maracas terrace for the cocktail hour and the maracas concrete terrace for dinner/dancing.  It's so hard to finalize decorations when I'm not sure exactly how it lays out!


          We also have enough room nights for private functions....I am open to suggestions for that!  We will be doing a welcome cocktail hour and then a rehearsal dinner!

            Also....does anyone have any advise on hair/make-up at Aventura Spa?  I've love to be able to use our resort credits - did anyone get their hari/makeup done at the spa?

              I'm 30 Days AWAY!


              Losing my mind. Clearly.

              So here's where we're at right now. I'm literally faxing a signed proposal for my private events to Banetza (my WC) as we speak---


              Wednesday 10/17

              We arrive (along with just a couple of guests). Meet with WC. Lounge. Quiet dinner with friends.


              Thursday 10/18

              The majority of guests arrive.

              4-8PM informal welcome pool party / cocktails & hors d'oevres

              8PM informal group dinner (reservation @ Mundaca)


              Friday 10/19

              The rest of the guests arrive.

              Daytime- probably an excursion? dolphins, or into playa del carmen.

              6PM Informal group cocktail party @ Pandero Terrace

              7PM to the lobby for the Mexican Fiesta

              8PM Rehearsal/Full Welcome Dinner @ the Mundaca Inlet


              Saturday 10/20

              Gym, Spa in the AM, Massage, hot tub

              Lunch & Champagne in our suite while we get ready

              3PM Wedding Party arrives @ Coba Gazebo

              3:45 Guests arrive

              4PM Ceremony

              - My friend is playing guitar for the ceremony

              - We are also bringing our own officiant

              5PM Cocktail Hour @ Cove Terrace

              - Music: iPod and our own Bose Speaker

              6PM Reception Dinner @ Maracas Terrace

              - Music: same, iPod & speaker

              - Decor: We're thinking we'll pick some flowers when we arrive, and we'll bring tea candles, flower petals, and table runners.

              - Favor/Decor: Our place cards are our favors- they are a framed photo of us with each wedding guest.

              8-10:00 Recuperate, Get some nighttime photos of the couple, Change Clothes, put babies to bed, see the 9PM Breakdance show @ Andromeda

              10-1 Dance Party @ Andromeda Disco


              Sunday 10/21

              Informal Goodbye Brunch


              We'll be staying until Wednesday, when we transfer to the Fairmont Mayakoba Playa Del Carmen for our final days in Mexico.


              So crazy!

              What else should I be thinking about?

              We have ~38 guests, including an 8 year old and a newborn, and my fiancee's Mormon family (we are not Mormon). So we've been working to ensure that mock-tails are at every party, sparkling wine for toasts, etc.

                  Abby Forever!  I can't wait to hear ALL about it!  I am having many of my events in the same locations as you!  Banetza is in the process of putting together the final proposal for me - I'm about 54 days away!


                  How did you find out about the breakdance show and mexican fiesta?  Also, what is your plan for hair/make-up the day of the ceremony?


                  Do you have the 75 room nights so you get unlimited private functions?  I am trying to finalize all my locations.  Looks like you have a great timeline!

                    Also....Abby!  I'm doing the same with some flowers. I actually found a florist - with good prices - who will deliver my flowers to the resort for $15 from Playa del Carmen.  If you know what you want you can order it 7 days in advance.  I'd be happy to share the info if you'd like it!

                      Question for you, ladies who have provided your own music:

                      We're hesitant to pay the $400 for a speaker and mic for our reception dinner... Have any of you ladies forgone that and provided your own speakers and ipod? I'm thinking of bringing a Bose portable speaker along. Will that be loud enough? We have 38 people total, and will be using it on the Cove Terrace (cocktails) and the Maracas Terrace (dinner).


                      Let me know your thoughts on this?





                      your favorite neurotic bride :)
