    It cost me $15.00 for flowers for my hair. Natalia came to the spa during my hair appt and brought me like 6 flowers to choose from. I just gave the rest to others who wanted to use them. If you want to solve the whole cost of speakers for ceremony and wedding so what I did. I purchased an Ipod/CD karoake machine from best buy for 50.00. It fit into my roll on/carry . It came with a microphone so it worked for the ceremony, toasts as well as reception music.

    For the Bride to be who asked about carrying back decorations from Mexico- I had no problem- I brought everything back- even the glass vases the flower arrangements they gave me in the wedding package.

      Take your own fabric. You can get enough for the Gazebo, chairs and tables. It packs well in your suitcase and then you can get whatever color you want!

I don;t think I really need the speaker for the cocktail hour but the Ipod Docking Station would be enough. BUT if I am having the coctail hour on the beach anyway...I imagine there will be music there anyways...no?

        Any insight or advice from past brides would be greatly appreciated!!!

        Thanks!

        It's a flat rate of $150 for the speaker "rental" until 10-11pm (that's what we were charged)...but we had our reception and dinner on the beach...so if you have it in the restaurant, then that may be the reason for the additional charges :-)

          1. Does it cost extra to have flowers put in your hair?? OR is that included in the price of the up-do? I am paying to have all my girls get their hair done, and it would be cool to be able to make sure they all can have flowers in their hair if they want :o)

          2. Does anyone know if I use the Caribbean Trio for the cocktail hour will I still have to pay the $365 if I use their speaker system just at the reception. I want to use my ipod but a mic is really important.

          3. For the girls that have already been through this, was it easy to get your decorations back? I have to get married at home a week after I get home from Mexico and I would like to be able to use some of the decorations twice...that way I only have to pay for them once :o)

          Thanks for any help!!

          1. The hair flowers are $6 extra...but they give you like 5-6 flowers! You would pay that in the total price when you pay the wedding. So no worries on that :-)

          2. I only paid $150 for the speaker system rental for the entire night (until 11pm) and we had the Caribbean trio and then used our iPod for the dinner & dancing...on the beach :-)

          3. The wedding coordinator will ask you if you want the decorations back and they will deliver them back to your room that same night :-)

            So....is it better to put the music on CD's as opposed to the Ipod and when you say bring your own docking station do you mean from home or the ones from the room...but they're tied down no?

            Now I really don't know what to do!!!

            Also, did you bring your marriage licence home with you or will they ship it to you. I'm not sure if I want to leave it there!!!

            Thanks!
            If you use your iPod for the dinner, then all you have to do is hook it up and push play and in every room there are iPod docking stations to play it! :-)

            I brought our marriage license home b/c we were going to get it "Apostled" and translated here in Dallas instead of paying them the fees and waiting the months to get it back...but that's really your choice as it would cost less here at home to get that paperwork done...plus you have the license in hand

                So you were able to remove the docking station from the room? Other recent brides said it was wired to the wall.

I am not even sure what color I would like for the gazebo but if I do end up wanting it I would hope that they would be able to access it.
                  So basically does anyone know or has anyone used the material at the resort for other things besides just the tables?
                  Also does anyone know if they have fabric to drape on the ceiling of the seaside grille or is that something that everyone has just brought from home?

                  Thanks ladies!
                  I think can't wait was the first one to get the seaside grill drapped with material (check page 1, I put it under "member contributions") and the resort charged them several hundred dollars to buy the material!!!! I would definitely bring your own. It's so cheap at idearibbon .com Plus it's not that heavy to pack, although if you bring like 6 big bolts it might take up a whole large suitcase (although it might not cost too much since it's so light). When I packed mine, I pulled out the cardboard piece from the middle and it took up way less space.

                    RachelAnn: were you maybe quoted 350$ for the sound system because you were going to have one of the staff member control it too? That is the only reason I can think of why they quoted you 350$ instead of 150$.
