    Hi Jackie,

    Did you use your BOSE ipod docking station for your reception on the Cove Terrace? We are having our cocktail party there and wanted to know how the sound quality was or did you decide on renting the equipment?

      We decided on renting the equiptment, it was $250 for the speakers, microphone and the hook up to play the i pod. I'm glad we did it that way because I think the sound might have gotten lost otherwise. And I wanted the music loud because it was dinner & dancing.

      But for background music for a cocktail hour you might be able to get away with the bose.

        I just wanted to give a quick description of the DVD ~ since that is what I was looking for before I left for my wedding. =)

        The DVD is about 30 minutes long and it begins when the WC picks you up! The videographer seemed to have a "check list" of things she wanted to tape. One was putting on some lip gloss. I had just given all my makeup to my mom to take to the ceremony so I put on some mascara. They tape you looking out the window, in the mirror, etc. Seems a little corny when you are doing it, but they edit the video and it's really nice. They also tape the walk/ride to the ceremony. There is more than one videographer so they don't miss anything! The ceremony was great, they really captured everything. They edit out the bad stuff too...like I needed a bobby pin to hold my hair back and so my sister gave me one of hers. (it was not on the video) Also, after the ceremony they had taped all of us kinda standing around, chatting and taking our professional pictures. They used our ceremony music and then Jack Johnson's Better Together. (we did not tell them what to use) But it was perfect! WELL worth the money! So anyway, keep your lip gloss with you! LOL! If anyone has any questions feel free to ask. We still have our ATR this weekend so after that I will write a full review.

          Do you pick your flowers and centerpieces when you are down there or do you give them the order before hand?

            We picked ours beforehand, so that we would get what we wanted. You can pick them when you are down there, but they may not have what you want at the time and you may have to pick something differant.

              We picked ours when we arrived so nothing would get lost in translation i.e. colors, size, ribbon, etc.
              They also had way more arrangements to pick from than they sent me before hand that I hadn't even thought about.
              Just some tips:
              -think in season....this will assure the flowers you want will be there and at a cheaper cost
              -bring pictures...they can mimic basically anything you want
              -send your WC some idea before hand so if you do have a special/difficult order they can make sure they have it ready for you

                Did anyone ask if you could go and pick up flowers from Playa the day of instead? It would only be half outside vendor if you picked them up I suppose

                =)

                  Haha that's funny, we actually thought about doing that! Come the day of the wedding though I don't think anyone wanted to deal with it. Plus it's about 30-45 minutes just to get to Playa so what you're paying for the cab amounts to the same price you pay just going with the resorts flowers.

                    Was that $250 total? I looked at the sound system sheet and they are wanting $325 for the first hour and up to $400 for 4 hours... it's worth it if you have a private reception but if only having cocktail hour it doesnt seem like a good deal since you have to spend $325 for just one hour. I dont know what to do!!! Watch I will change everything up at the last minute!

                      Hi ladies! Ive been looking at these luminary paper bags, where you put the battery operated tealights in them and they glow at night...was thinking about having a bunch of them around the area where our reception will be...just wondering if anyone thinks it will be too windy in Mexico in November for these...will they just blow away? what if i put some sand in the bottom of them? thanks for any input...nicole
