        I'm so glad you had an amazing time. Your pictures (or at least the ones I've seen so far) are AMAZING. Congrats. Did you do the private or semi-private reception?  I can't find you on facebook either...:(

          It was amazing... We did the semi-private since we didn't have enough for the private (we'd have to pay 20 $ person actually there, plus an additional 20 $ per person to get our number up to the private dinner number). It just seemed ridiculous to pay that much. So we had the semi-private cocktail hr from 530-830 with the mariachi band the 1st hour. We brought down a sony ipod player which gave us music to dance to during the cocktail hr. Dinner was then at 845, and it was pretty much private (even though it was the semiprivate).

            This is exactly what I was thinking of doing because we'll have about 30 people I'm guessing. Did you do appetizers during your cocktail party? Was there other music playing over your ipod player or could you hear it? I know Nancy told me they had a sound system for rent if I wanted to play my own music during the cocktail party, but I wasn't sure how much it costs, etc...Also, drinks were provided for no extra cost during the cocktail party, right?

             

            Also, what were the dinner choices for the semi-private reception? Did everyone get to order what they wanted?

             

            Will you be doing a review? Sorry for all the questions...I'm getting close now and all of a sudden I feel like I need to know everything!

            Thanks...

              I will be doing a review... just haven't started yet...

               

              We did not do appetizers. Our wedding was at 3, and done by 330... People ended up going to the snack bar after and just getting a quick snack after taking some group pictures on the beach. That was just fine for our group. For the first 2 1/2 hours or so, there was no other music so you could hear it just fine. At about 8, some musicians set up to play at the Plaza, which was right by our cocktail hr. So they asked us to shut off our music, but then we had theirs. It was only for the last 30 minutes anyways. Drinks were included... They had servers going back and forth to the bar. My dad had made friends with one of the servers, Santos, the night before. He actually came in on his day off to serve our cocktail hour! (we tipped him well, which helped ;) :)) So we got great service and no problems getting our drinks. They also said up our champagne toast here as well as at dinner!

               

              The sound system, I am not sure about the costs. We did our own so that we would have the oppurtunity to control the ipod. My dad had been looking at BOSE systems anyways, and ended up with a sony one that had radio too. 

               

              For the dinner, we got choices from the full menu. I believe I still have the menus for both Chilli's and Boto Foga saved on my computer, I could send it to you.

                    What songs did you pick for ceremony songs? Did you do the traditional father/daughter, mother/son, etc dances? If so, did the sound system work ok?
