    So exciting that you are only a month out! What do you have left to do? I remember reading about the cocktail hours but I don't remember if anyone had a preference.

     

    Linds - do you have any input here? You're always so helpful...

      Lynn, I just heard from the wedding coordinator today too! I didn't even notice that about the dinner since I am having 34 so I was allready over... that sucks, hopefully they let you get the earlier time. I am going to try to see if I can get any sort of earlier time (even like 730) with my number of 34. Of course the WC contacted me at the worst time possible, I am up to my eyeballs in internship stuff, but oh well :).

       

      As for the cocktail hour, I was thinking the same thing. I was going to do a scan of the 300 pages on here as well as the other RPRM reviews and see if I find anything. I believe one is outside and one is inside, I will let you know if my research yields any good info :)... I personally would rather be outside, so unless I find anything bad about the out door one that is the one I will go with. I think we are goins to do the mariachi band during this time (which is what Linds did) so that is another reason I am leaning towards outdoors. Although, they've already raised the price almost 100$ from the original info I got back last January. Hopefully they don't raise it up any more in the next month and a half!

       

       On a similar note, I plan to research the food places too.. I can't remember if people said Chili's or Bota Fogo was better?? Again, I liked that Chilli's was open air, but I'd rather have a better food! Anyone remembering if one place was better then the other?

        PS has anyone else found then even when they have an incredible amount of work or homework to do, they still do wedding stuff first even when they shouldn't :) Its just sooo much more fun

          Well without looking back, I'm pretty sure I remember people saying one of the cocktails hours is near the pool, and one is the Lyrico bar I think, which there is a picture of on the website, I think its inside as part of the lobby? I could be wrong. But I was planning on doing the inside one because it sounds like thats what most people do but I know they said both are nice. I also want to do the mariachi band, but how much is it now? For the restaurants Chili's is definetly not as fancy as Botofogo, but I don't remember anyone complaining about either one. All I've heard is good things about the food at both. I agree that it would be cool to be outside as Chili's, but I know my mom already decided for me she wants to do the indoor one.

           

          I also would really love to move up the time of dinner since I have at least 40 people, but I didn't really think it was an option? I did notice Dana put 7:00 dinner on her welcome letter, so I'm wondering how she got that time.

                Does anyone know when Dana gets back? I can't wait to hear from her...

                 

                My invites are in! I've decided to send them out earlier than normal - 5 months instead of 3...I'll post pictures soon! They are so fun!

                  When does Dana get back? i would love to hear about her trip! I am starting to get super nervous and trying to decide everything. i dont know where to have the dinner at, chillies or boto fogo? we have only 27 people so its going to be a semi private reception. i seem to remember someone saying they also had a small group and they were seated upstairs so it was practically like a private reception. do  any of you remember which resturant this was at? AH... so soon. man does time fly by! i also finally got my order in for the OOT bags. we have a large plastic cup, a mexican themed rubber duckie, little maracas key chains, some advil, shout wipes and a welcome letter.... i think that should be enough right? maybe i'll put a football in one of they guys bags so they can throw that around....... SO EXCITED!!! Where are you other ladies doing your honeymoon? i wont be having one but will be in tulum with my parents for a couple of days before heading to the RIU. Happy monday everyone!!!!

                    Not sure when Dana is getting back, but I am soo excite to hear everything too :)! We decided on Chilli's because of the open air aspect. I believe Linds and Lisa both did receptions here and said it was good (but I cannot remember for sure who)... I also remember someone saying that they were in an upstairs room and it was pretty much private but cannot remember who or which restaurant, again I feel like that could have been Linds. Have you talked to the wedding coordinator about having it at the earlier time spot since they just changed it to 25? Also, what did you decide about cocktail hour, are you doing one? She only listed one choice on my email, so i asked her if i had choices and if i did if she would send me pictures and/or descriptions of the two... I think your OOT bags will be great :) DO you have a lot of other stuff to do?

                     

                    Honeymoon, we are not doing a seperate one right away since we are staying 10 days at RPRM... We will have friends/family there the whole time, but depending on time and the money situation we may try to escape to cozumuel for a day just the two of us. We also want to do a "second" honeymoon within the next 2 years just the two of us..

                      So just did some look and both chloe and linds had done semi-private at chilli's and said it was pretty much private. Janae had done boto fogo and said a smiliar thing i believe.. (Sorry its all blurry-ing together). Pretty much I don't think you can go wrong. I saw posts that people said they liked chilli's better and saw posts that people liked boto fogo better. 

                       

                      Oh yes on 285 someone who had done a site visit posted pictures of the restaurants.. they were not set up for weddings or anything, but it may help you to get a better visual..
