I do know that I am definitely doing a traditional first dance and a father daughter dance. I'm HOPING I get to provide a song list too, and if I don't then I might consider the BOSE option.
Will keep you posted as soon as I know more!
however, it only applies for groups over 50 people and has an additional
I didnt get a private reception or DJ, we did not have 50 guest.
At the meeting with the WC, which is at RIU Mexico. The WC provided a list of songs for the Ceremony. We had to pick 3 songs. I only like one so I brought my Ipod and wrote down the other two song names and at which point of the song I wanted her to play them. She took the Ipod and list from me on the wedding day.
one song for the grand entrance , one for the signing of the legal documents.. I suggest two songs if you can talk her into it. It does take a little longer.. they had to replay the same song for me "i think." and one song for us walking down at the end.
I choose the gazebo .. It was nice .. I actually walked out of the Spa and got dressed in the Spa. I had just finished my hair and it was alot closer to walk than my room.
Brides be careful walking down the path if you decide on the Gazebo.. not very heel friendly. I had some pics of me looking down so I wouldnt fall and making sure I stepped on the stone. so remember to look up at the cameras. I plan on writing to the RIU hoping they would fix it for future brides.. the stones are just not very friendly. YOu will have bystanders viewing your wedding. I didnt mind at all. I even stopped and poised for them at one moment.
The shopping center on 5th street was very very close , a $5 cab ride and your there in mins. I heard at night is the best time to go, they have shows and more lively.
The margaritas at the hotel could of been better. The swim up bar closes at 6pm. and the pool closes at 8pm.
The Wedding Ceremony was the best part. I couldnt ask for anything more. It was absolutley wonderful.
Ohh.. The WC said we would not have to say anything but "I do"... wrong... during the ceremony he did ask us to say something about each other. Of course I didnt have anything in mind and I was suprised and panicked. I wasnt hard to think of anything, its just that I would rather have been semi prepared than not at all.
There was a topless lady behind us sunbathing.. not uncommon at the Hotel.
