          We will have around 70 guests, am I right in thinking I read that the pool terraces won't hold that many?  I may be wrong, I have read so many things at this point!

            I checked the wedding package, it doesn't have a max capacity listed for the pool... that's not helpful I know haha, but I thought I'd let you know it's not in there.

              I would def. ask! It seems like a nice middle ground! I think that I will prob. have around the same amount, maybe a little less so I would be interested as to what they allow you to do :)

Right now we are planning on just using an ipod since we have a DJ for our home reception. We are trying to keep extra costs down! Any opinions/suggestions would be great!

                  We hired a DJ - DJ Bijan from Mayanvibes for our 55 person wedding reception for 4 hours.  We had him do our ceremony music in the chapel for 30 minutes as well.  For $850.00, it was totally worth it for us as we had a great time dancing at our reception at the Seaside Grill.  We had a huge list of songs ranging from the 1950s to now in order to give him a taste of the fun songs we were looking for...plus the more subtle dinner music, first dance, etc.  If we changed our minds on timing or something we wanted to play at the moment, he was able to do it no problem.  I actually didn't include a father/daughter dance so when it was time, I went over to him and asked if he could play a country song that would reflect the occasion and he nailed it.  I loved that I didn't have to micromanage him.  He knew what to do and how to keep the reception moving.  DJ Bijan was extremely easy and prompt to deal with via email.  We email money transferred him our $200.00 deposit in CAD to hold him for our wedding.  He was nice enough to let us pay him in CAD since he's a Canadian living in Mexico.  The final amount was paid with Paypal in USD the day of the ceremony.  He also gave us the option to pay in cash.

                   

                  The ceremony sound was not as good as good unfortunately.  I'm not sure why that was.  The music itself was fine but the microphone kept cutting out and it wasn't loud enough when people were speaking into it.  Like I said, I'm not sure if that was the resort's mic system or his or whether Kiko, the minister wasn't holding it properly.

                   

                  Anyway, that's what I can tell you about having a DJ.  It all depends on what you want to spend but we found DJ Bijan to be affordable for 4.5 hours of play when comparing prices at the time.   I think you can definitely get away with having an ipod but you need someone to man it if you're planning on having speeches, special dances, games, etc....which is what we did.  I think some brides have brought ipods and had a resort sound guy manage it as well.  That may be a cheaper option but I'm not sure.  Hope that helps!

                  We are getting married Nov 23!  We are just filling out all the package paperwork- I am nervous!  We are trying to decide between a reception on the beach or the ballroom.  We love the look of the beach location, but are worried that it may be windy and loud with the ocean.  Any previous brides have input on these locations, please help! 

                  Hey Amanda

                   

                  You really have no reason to be nervous.  I think it's just the fear of the unknown.  No matter what, it will be beautiful, relaxing, and fun!!  The beach location is beautiful and romantic.  You will need to have lights of some kind because it is dark at night and a bit secluded (in a good way) at one end of the resort.  It's a bit windy so you'll need battery operated candles if you use candles and in November and can be a bit chilly to the shoulders for the women so shawls/little coverups come in handy.  I had my reception at the Seaside Grill which is near the beach reception area and some of the older ladies were chilly to the shoulders (but they obviously weren't dancing..haha!!).  I was hot of course but not unbearable.  It was actually the perfect temperature for anyone dancing, women with long dresses and for the men.

                   

                   I went to a wedding in Jamaica last April....it was soooooooo hot and humid at night.  Almost unbearable to dance in a short dress.  Their reception area was much like the Seaside Grill where there is a ceiling but it's open to the outside all the way around and it had ceiling fans (there are no ceiling fans at the Seaside Grill).  It was BOILING! I could not imagine wearing a wedding dress in that sweltering humidity.

                   

                  As for the ballroom, I have only seen it in pictures. It just depends on what atmosphere you're looking for.
