I'm thinking of having the cocktail reception on the beach then moving to the pool terrace....I did call Landy out on this, as well as the back and forth with the bonfires. Remember how after the closing they said bonfires were out...then, someone went down rite after and they were on....and now of course, they are back off!!!! so annoying!! I'm now just getting excited to get down there and enjoy it instead of waiting and worrying..I know it will be great no matter what:))
    The Dolphin pool terrace is super nice-I would not worry about it

          It was warm but the thing is, it is very windy there so it is never crazy hot. Most nights we wore jeans/capris and a shirt. I also had a pasmina with me just in case. If you are eating dinner by the beach the wind can be strong.

            Has anyone brought their Pastor to bless their wedding? We are having a Civil ceremony, but my parents are flying our family Pastor to bless our wedding and I was just wondering how that works.

              You could ask Landy if he could do it towards the end of the ceremony, in a way so that it is integrated (at least somewhat) with the ceremony. I think this should be allowed seeing as they allow you to add readings etc.

              Alternatively, you could have him due the blessing at the cocktail hour (it would be similar to doing a "toast") or at dinner (kinda like saying "grace" before the meal begins).

                Brides who are in the early stages of planning and looking for a photographer, make sure you read this (it's a horrible review of Michael Maurus of Cancun Wedding Photography)

                  Beth got it right. It is warm at night, but it is very windy which creates a nice night time atmosphere. I wore dresses and skirts and brought a hoodie or pashmena along as well and I was fine. I found that if I had sunburn I was a little more chilly. :)

                  Days are hot, nights are nice. At least from 4/27 - 5/8!

                    You mentioned it was windy on the beach---was it too windy? My worry with the beach is that I don't want people to eat with sand in their food. How did your meal go on the beach?

                    Yes, it seemed to be pretty windy there day and night. Guess it's the location. The wind was a little bothersome, not enough to ruin anything though. We did not have any sand in our food that I noticed, but sevice was a little slow so by the time we got our main course it was a little dark and hard to see the food. A friend of mine took a pic of the food before he ate it because he couldn't see it! It looked really good! The pic is burried somewhere in my photos on photobucket. You could feel the sand hitting you a little and it did seem to blow in my face quite a bit.

                    hope this helps. If you have any other questions, just shoot me a message.

                      Your guests will be fine until the cocktail hour. It gives them time to change if they want or just hang out at one of the bars until it is time. Once we finished our pictures, we walked around the resort and found everyone sitting together at the Sugar reef bar. If your worried, you could always plan to have everyone just meet at the bar for "Pre-Cocktail Hour Drinking" or call it something fun like that. That way everyone stays together.

                      It was so cool, we went to our room right before the cocktail hour to freshen up a bit and everyone headed to the lobby bar terrace for the cocktail hour. As we were walking towards the terrace through the gardens, we could see everyone on the terrace and they were all waving to us...it was like we were making a grand entrance. It was great!

                      Thanks,
                      Katie
