    This thread is amazing!! Sunbride, you’re wonderful! I’m learning something on almost every post. I can't look/download at everything yet because of points but I will be able soon!

    Thank you for taking the time to put all this together and always answering!

      I just found out that I will be having an unexpected guest at the wedding. We just found out we're pregnant, so I guess I will have a (little or mabe rather large) baby bump in my wedding dress!
      Thanks! Congrats to you..how exciting! You must both be so thrilled!

        I think they must switch around their theme nights...while I was there, the fire dancers were on Friday night, the Mayan show was Saturday night, they had a huge Superbowl party on the beach on Sunday night (it was awesome and I'm not even a football fan), it rained like buckets on Monday so I'm not sure, and Tuesday night was the Mexican Fiesta (with the mechanical bull!). I can't recall what was on Wednesday night. Thursday was American Idol night (karaoke). I think they had some movie playing on the beach most nights.

        Also, the IPOD docking station was wired into the wall in all the rooms I checked. If you are using a restaurant I wonder if you might be able to use the sound system like I did (see my review).

          I said 2 pages ago that my wedding was a thursday and that was mexican fiesta night, but I was wrong (man, how much we forget in 10 months!). My wedding was a tuesday (thursday was my arrival/departure day). So it looks like the mexican fiesta is likely always on tuesdays based on mine and Lulu's experiences.

              Kirk and I are using moments that matter photography. They are a canadian couple who now live in mexico. Take a look at the webiste, momentsthatmatterphotography.com or just moments that matter and you should be able to find them. Their prices are very reasonable!!! Good Luck!

                Hi girls,

                Alright - I know we've all been through this conversation a dozen times, but I still don't have it straight in my head! In terms of playing music at the reception, I will need:

                1. To pay $150 to rent the speaker system (?)
                2. To use an ipod docking station to hook up to the speaker system (?)
                3. To bring AAA batteries with me for the ipod docking station (?)

                If anyone can clarify this once and for all, I will be eternally grateful! I've read a couple of times that the ipod docking stations are not removable from the guest rooms, so I'm unsure about whether I need to bring one down with me and whether it'll easily hook up to the speaker system. I'm hoping to have my reception at the Seaside Grill.

                Thanks for any clarification that can be provided. And sorry for being so dense about this... I just feel a bit confused!

                  Yes, I second that Sunbride--I think we're catching onto their pattern. We arrived on a Tuesday night and went to Mexican fiesta night. But, they also had fiesta night on Friday (we had our rehearsal dinner there--as I posted before). So, I THINK they may have fiesta night a couple of times a week-- every Tuesday and another time on another day of the week...not sure that it is every Friday. Another thing for brides to keep in mind is that world cafe is closed for these occassions.

                    I hired Cecilia Dumas to do my photography and she is awesome. I haven't posted pics yet, but will very soon. In the meantime, I know there was another bride who posted pics taken by Cecilia here on the forum...you could do a search for the photographer. The pics on her website aren't as realistic as what you'll get--but I loved everything and would choose her all over again. I told her I wanted pics of the "good" side of my face and she remembered the whole day. Not only that, but she is very reasonably priced.

                    Trinidad at the salon did my make-up and I was VERY happy with it. However, I had a trial run a couple of days prior, and I wasn't thrilled. Not sure what she did differently the day of the wedding, but it looked 100 times better. I guess it's hit or miss.

                    I know I have seen at least 3 brides on this forum that had amazing pics taken by resort photogs and 2 were recent, but there were some brides that stated in their review that the pics were AWEFUL..
                    So far we have one name provided to us by BC Bride2be his name was Philimino sp?
                    And Amesharps photographer was pretty awesome too... we don;t have a name but he wore a headband the entire time...

                    and Tremendous thanx in advance to all the brides that can get some more info for us

                      Yes you have to pay 150$ for the ceremony, and another 150$ if you want it for the reception

                      You can burn your music on CD OR bring you ipod (which they will hook up to their speaker which you paid 150$ for).

                      ALTERNATIVELY, if you don't want to rent the speaker system, you could use an ipod dock which is really just a small speaker, so you can only use that if you have a small group (in my opinion, it would be good for a small dinner, but not so good for a large group at dinner, or for having a dancing at your reception). You would have to bring your own ipod docking station because the ones at the resort are now wired into the wall (this did not use to be the case).

                      So after all the time we spent trying to figure out the type of batteries required, it doesn't matter, cause the docks cannot be removed from your room!
