But it definitely does say $240 for the reception for 3 hours. That's $390 just for a speaker system for the ceremony and reception!! Maybe a few of us brides should buy a speaker system and share it, since there are a few of us getting married around the same time, you on June 19, I think there are a few in the last week of June, and I'm July 10, and then jayreneewed on July 15. We could split the cost of buying a system, and then just pass it from bride to bride
      hmm... nice idea krista, but who would get to keep it afterward?

      seriously though, I am considering buying and bringing our own iPod docking station. I guess we would still need to rent the resort's sound system for the ceremony so we could have the microphone, but at least then we wouldn't have to also rent it for the reception. I'll use that $240 toward the docking station which will be of use to us for years to come! :)

Heck, for that price I can just buy one of the Bose iPod docking stations and bring it with me! They have a portable one for $300, and they have a big sound that I think would really carry outside.
                I believe the cost of the sound system, for the ceremony, is $150...but EVERYTHING has a 10% sales tax on it, making the sound system $165. Included with the sound system for the ceremony, they do have a cd with classical music and the wedding march, so you don't have to bring any music for the ceremony if you don't want to.

                  Hi VioletVixen,

                  I know, I thought of that after I posted! I feel really dumb now lol....anyway, I also didn't think of the microphone thing. I guess I'll probably just go ahead and rent from them for the ceremony and reception, it just feels like such a rip off that they can charge that much! Yikes! I can understand rising costs, etc...but it jumped from 150 this year to 240 for 2010....seems a little much!

                    Has anyone gotten married in July, if so how's the heat at night? I want to have a reception outside, but i don't want to sweat the the whole time. Any advise?

                      Hi! I haven't been married in July but I was in Tulum last July--it is really hot during the day but i think you can have an outside reception in the evening! at that point everyone will adjust to the heat :) Just make sure everyone dresses cooly.
