We had to tuck my veil into the back of my dress during the ceremony to have it not blowing in my face the whole time. The pictures on the beach were a little difficult with the veil blowing all the time too, & I almost took it off. But from the pictures I've seen so far, I'm glad I kept it on.
    Ok thats good to know. I so badly want to have my hair down, but Im so worried about the wind. I figure half up, half down wouldnt be so bad, but you never know until you talk to someone whos actually experienced it. Thanks!

      On picture 14, that is showing the lounge beach chairs, correct? That area is restricted to concierge level or higher. The good thing is that with the vacation dollars you can upgrade your room. I kinda wish we didnt book the conceirge room since they look them same as the regular rooms (plus no one ever stays in their rooms)! Also we could have saved some money by booking the regular room had we knew about the promotion then upgraded when we got there. Oh well...

      As for picture 18, I think you can have your reception there but not 100%. Also we were going to just use a reservation at Mundaca on the Terrace but it wasnt private enough (you can see it on pic 15). Now the top of Mundaca restaurant has an awesome view which is used for private functions and when we met up with Dulca we asked if we could have our private event up there but it was booked. I guess in the end it didnt really matter since we had our reception inside due to weather.

      Also another great place to have your reception is the Cove Terrace which is VERY beautiful and has an awesome view. You can see the pics from Jackie's wedding pictures.

        Also wanted to add that the gift shop at the resort has wonderful last minute favor items. We picked up 30 maracas for $40 at the gift shop. You can go into Playa Del Carmen but it will cost you $25 or so dollars round trip for cab fare... just a thought.

          Another thing... I wasnt a big fan of the El Greco restaurant but the Mundaca Steakhouse was GREAT! There filet mignon is WONDERFUL! Everyone was very surprised that the steak was so good and it wasnt uncommon for people to order a second serving of steak!

            Thanks for the tip! I was already planning on going to Playa and to the local Walmart for the maracas so this is great. Now I can save a trip!!

                  Past Brides...

                  So I have been in contact with ASP and I finialy recieved a quote for the laterns I want.

                  They want to charge me about $485 for my white chinese paper laterns.

                  I can buy them (50 Laterns with Electrical cords and bulbs) for $120

                  In the big picture of things it normally wouldnt be that much of a savings ,but I need them for my AHR so I will be purchasing the $120 in laterns anyways.

                  Now What I am wondering. If I bring them down with me. Do you think they will hang them up? I am reclucant to ask the hotel, because I believe they will stir me toward using their inhouse decor company.

                  However I am hoping that if i just bring them down and give them to our WC, they will just do it.

                  Thoughts? We have the Pandero Terrance and Mundaca Inlet reserved for our Cocktail/Reception Partys. They Terrance should be easy to hang, I am not sure about the Inlet, If they can do anything with that.

                  Also, I know once you arrive the WC goes over all the decor with you. Is there an option for ticki torches or should I contact them before hand?

                    wow!!! I don't know anything about that, but to my knowledge I believe you are allowed to bring your own decorations!! I plan on bringing some myself!

                      I just wasnt sure if they would hang them and such when you give them to the WC .. I guess if they want to charge me for labor its still cheaper.
