    Second, my question is regarding the "dinner reservation for up to 35 guests." How strict is this? I have between 35 to 40 guests, does that mean I HAVE to purchase a private event? And is the dinner reservation just reserving a section at one of the restaurants? If I want to eat at the Pandero Terrace, is that considered a private event?

    Sorry for a million questions, I just realized how unclear I am with all of this and would like to anticipate any extra costs once we arrive.

    Thanks in advance!
    The dinner reservations aren't super strict...depending on which restaurant your pick. Some of them just can't hold that many people and will only let you have a max of 15-20 people. Actually...I think there is only 2 maybe 3 that will let you even have 35, but if you ask nicely they'll push it up to around 40. And yes, it is JUST for the restaurant...if you want it on the Terrace it has to be a private even tbecause they would be doing the food and set up just for your group. But Mundaca Steak Restaurant has a nice patio...and it's semi-private if you reserve it early.

    Ahhh it's still tripping me out that the wedding is over and I can answer all these questions!!!

      Hello all, just booked Nov.11 at 3pm at the cove palace. Thanks everyone for the posts. To the past brides, was the wedding coordinator there at the rehersal dinner and does anyone have a copy of their welcome letter.

              Hello all,

              I am getting married next Sat, Feb 20, 2010...I am slightly disturbed cause I see that it might rain...I have been to the resort when it rains and there are a bazillion mosquitoes... NAM...did they give you any contigency plan in case it did rain...My WC is Yazmin..and like Missy in her earlier post... I am frustrated with her cause she is slower then #*#$# in getting an answer back to me... I saw what they did for someone else's wedding when it rained and DID NOT like the looks of it..I just emailed Yazmin and asked her what the back up would be and the set up in one of those convention rooms is not something I would like...so basically they better think up something better and be more accomodating...I also.. did not like the cake I had a cake testing and was not thrilled...we asked if LeBlanc could make our cake and was told they could for another 250....I was also told to transport it...would be another 200 to drive it 45 minutes to Cancun.. I am really frustrated....

              Kim

                For the brides who have already been married at either Aventura Cove Palace or Aventura Spa Palace....what did your guests do at night for entertainment? Is there a bar that stays open late? Any that play music? I can't really tell by their descriptions on the palace resorts website.

                Thanks!

                  Sounds like a few of you are getting married on the same day!! How exciting!
                  The WC came to our rehearsal but did not stay for our event after (we had a cocktail party instead of dinner). We didn't have the rehearsal until 6 I believe so I don't blame her for leaving after...I mean, who really wants to work THAT long??
                  I have a copy of my welcome letter...not on my computer though. It's somewhere on this forum if you do a search for it.

                  We had 50 people and it was easy! Just don't stress about everyone having a good time and ENJOY YOURSELF!!! Everyone else is an adult and can entertain themself on vacation, this is not your job!!

                  There really is no "beach" so it wouldn't be a beach reception in the way you are thinking...there's an area with a type of sand near the water. Raluca did this and it was BEAUTIFUL (our wedding was the same evening so we got to see eachothers set up)!! Her pictures are a few pages back.
                  The weather changes on a daily basis but is generally really nice. Beginning of November is tricky...still can get into hurricanes but when it's sunny...it's beautiful! Can't do anything about the weather though so I wouldn't stress.

                  Key word Kim: it MIGHT rain. But it MIGHT not. You can't control the weather and you're weddding will be great so try not to stress so close to the trip of your life!
                  We did not have a back up plan for rain, I just hoped for the best and it was the most beautiful day of the whole trip...not a cloud in the sky. Even if it's calling for rain, chances are, it won't pour all day. Small rains will come and go then clear up. So, I'm not really sure what venues they have for when it rains. If you can have it on the adults only side, I would suggest the indoor pool terrace. It's outside but still covered and really lovely.
                  The WC do slow down with responses when you're getting close but you have to remember they are managing other weddings and brides that are already down there. Also, DW are made for minimal planning and it's much much much easier to take care of details when you get down there, can see venues, colors, and get a feel for everything. As long as you have your bases covered for what you need to bring from home the WC will really surprise you when you get down there. I PROMISE!!! The hotel doesn't even begin working on things like flowers, cake, decor...until after you arrive and have had your meeting with the WC.
                  As for the cake, I don't really know what to say to help. I can see why they would charge you more if you are taking their business away...although I know it sucks for you. We were pretty happy with our cake...nobody is expecting to eat the best cake they've ever had at the wedding...it's really just a minor detail. I wouldn't let it upset when you're about to marry the love of your life! You take a few pictures of it and then move on so try to remember it's not the end of the world. And if it's any consilation...all our guests were really pleased with the cake.

                  They have nightly shows and events. Just a few that I remember: fire dancers, a mexican carnvial with performances and street market, michael jackson show....
                  they also have a disco and bars all over the place. And I'm sure as people sit and enjoy dinner together, that runs late into the night enjoying good drinks and good company.

                    Hi Nam, Your photos inspired me to book Del Sol for my wedding at the Aventure Spa. They are just amazing. Your photos capture so much emotion. I think we are booking Vincent.
