    To the past brides: what did you all do for table decor for the reception? From the list tht Dulce sent me, centerpieces and other decor is very expensive. I was thinking of making my own centerpieces, but Im not sure how I will manage traveling with glass etc. Any suggestions or advice? Thanks!

      Another question for the past brides: I know that the resort is all inclusive, but how will alcohol be served during a private event? Do the terraces have bars or are there waiters serving the guests?

        It's a standard outlet. No need for converters

          From what I have heard in my talks with another bride, and by looking at her pictures. You get your "Own" bar with a bartendar and wait staff. They make a table into a bar full of booze! That was for a dinner event with 15 people.

Also this is my dad's friend and I heard all of this from my dad (the person we invited didnt RSVP yet but told my dad he is coming). I dont know for sure if that is true or if he will come since he has another couple joining him and his girlfriend. It sound more like he is going on vacation and may stop by... Should I count them or wait until I get a definite answer of YES

            I got mine through the resort. For me the cost was worth it not to drag stuff down to Mexico and back esp since I wouldn't want to keep any of the decor afterward.
            Sorry can't be of more help in regards to bringing stuff down. My advice though...don't over due it. Let the location be the "centerpiece".

            They set up a bar ust for your party and have bartenders/waiters etc. That's why you pay extra for a private event.

It's not even anything major! Just the little details... I thought when it got closer she would respond in a more timely manner. Currently going on 1 week with not hearing anything. Should I be worried or am I just getting antzy?! Does anyone have more details or pictures of the "new" gazebo on the Spa side? I just saw one picture and it looks beautiful!!! Crossing my fingers we get it! =)
              ME TOO!!! Ugh I'm SO frustrated with her! My wedding is June 5th, and I thought she'd pick up the pace with responding. So far, I've initiated all contact with her and everything I know is from this forum, and because I had to ASK her for the info. I don't feel like I'm being guided through any kind of process at all, and 3 weeks away from the wedding I have NO idea what I'm supposed to be doing to prepare. I almost want to ask for another coordinator. When is your wedding exactly, FutureMrsRell?

                Also, they just charge the passes to your room so you pay at check out. I would double check but maybe you could reserve the passes and if they don't show up you won't be charged

                Thanks!! My FI is worried about table decor more than I am. Hes been complaining to me lately-its so cute! But youre right, it might be worth paying the extra dollars and not have to deal with the hassle. I just didnt want to have a plain jane wedding. Im sure we can head over to playa del carmen and find some cute little things and the guests can take them home as favors! :)

                  Sorry you are experiencing this too! No tip for her!!! I sent two emails and she finally responded to ONE of them 8 days later, still waiting to hear back on my second email. However, one thing that is making me a little more relaxed, is she did tell me we are the only wedding that day. So, I'm assuming we will get the gazebo and dinner place we want. I just don't want to spend a lot of time with her when we get there. I can only imagine what kind of mood that will put my FI in! I'm still waiting for her to send the ceremony, the info on the spa and excursions. The ceremony is what I'm most concerned about right now. Good Luck! Oh yeah, we get married June 8th! =)

                    Yikes! my wedding is 6 months away and I get nervous when she doesnt respond quickly to me...if it were only a few weeks away I would be having a heart attack!!! hopefully she'll respond soon...if not, try to relax and be confident that our wedding is occuring in paradise, so no matter what it will be beautiful :)
