    Yes we did a welcome dinner for all of our guests the night before the wedding at the Buffett restaurant. They had three long tables set for us and we had our own servers and it was set apart from the main area of the dinning room. It was perfect, the food was excellent and it was a good opportunity for everyone at the wedding to spend some time together over dinner, and it was free! You can pick your time I think we ate at 7pm.

    Actually on the restaurant info the buffett always had good choices and good food. I really liked the Krystal fusion specialty restaurant the best, Chilis and Bogo Foto were good, I didn't get a chance to try the sushi restaurant and the Mexican was ok. They had a good appetizer buffett to start but the main courses where average. Anyhow hope that helps.

      Thank you Tylersgirl for the information on the chairbows! I got the caprice package and it does come with white covers but no bows (you would think bows would come with but whatev). I am going to look into it, Thanks so much!

      Jamie, THANK YOU THANK YOU for your review! I am also doing maracas as favors too! So I cant wait to go to playa to get them once we arrive :) You looked great!!! Jamie, I am also wanting to to botofogo-i heard that if you want a private dinner it would have to be the last seating at 8:30pm. We are doing that and then mariachi during cocktail hour. The DJ seems waayyy too pricey, how did your music situation go? Did you have an ipod? I think we might do that..

      My only concern is that I do not get nickeled and dimed once I get to the resort..I dont want prices to change or find out that the package really doesnt cover anything :/ If anyone has answers about that, that would be great..thats my only worry!!

        Nessa-

        They only extra money I spent was on the mariachi band and the flowers for my hair and my flowergirls hair. Other then that they give you lots of options to spend more, but I didn't need anything else. The package really does cover everything it says it does, no worries.

        We did also purchase a private snorkeling trip for the guys the morning of the wedding (12people) through scuba caribe. And as a gift to my bridesmaids I bought them a spa treatment and we all went to the spa that morning. but you will get an email from the lady at the spa about a month before your wedding to book all of those things and you get 5% off if you book them through email and she also offers special spa packages for around $120-140.

        The only other thing I was thinking to make sure to tell future brides is don't make your hair appointment to early. I had mine at 11am just in case I didn't like it so I had time to re-do but I loved it and then I just had to sit in my room for the next 3 hours watching everyone at the pool enjoying the day. If I had it to do over I would have my hair apt at 2pm then go right into the wedding at 4pm.

        Happy Planning-
        Jaime

          Thanks so much, I love the dresses your bridesmaids wore, where did you get them?
          and the groomsmen attire?

            Hi Everyone,

            I just got an email from the wedding coordinator at RPRM, my wedding is April 27th 2009 one of the location options for the ceremony is the "Kiosk Area" I was wondering if anyone here knew where that was, if it's indoors or what it looks like?

            Thanks!

                  I got the sun dresses at JC Penny, oddly enough we looked all over and we liked those the best and they were on sale for $60 each. The guys shirts we ordered from banana republic online store- they also were on sale lucky for us $30 each, the guys pants including Garrett's we found at Macy's for $20 each on the sale rack. Overall we got super lucky with all of it and finding the right sizes. I think Garrett got his shirt at Macy's too.

                  FYI...The Kiosk area is right where everyone walks in and out of the main lobby, bar, restaurants, etc. So depending on the time of your wedding and the size of your group ( I think it only accomadates 20 or less) there are lots of people walking through that area.

                    Jaime-Did you pay extra for your bouquet? or was that the standard bouquet? Also, where did you buy your travel mugs for everyone? We are staying in the two story suite too!! I am glad y'all had a great time. Are the beds pushed together to make a kind bed in the two story suite? Thanks!
