    Nikki-

     

    I sent Ana some pictures of what I was thinking- all white orchids with pink throats. Then I saw Allison's flowers and am now thinking I'm going to copy her!

     

    All that said, I've not heard back from Ana on the cost and if the orchids will be available in Dec.

      Just to give you my two cents, I think having the cocktail hour 15 minutes after the ceremony is great. We didn't have ours until 30 minutes after the ceremony ended, and I feel like this was too much time in between. Yes, we had a champagne toast on the beach and a group photo, but this was still too much time. The only exception would be if you and your husband really want to enjoy the majority of cocktail hour. Then I'd advise the 30 mins. between b/c your photog will most likely want to get several pics of you on the beach after the ceremony.

        We are planning on going shopping for speakers for our ipod this week for the reception.  I was thinking we could probably share things like that if you were interested since we are getting married the day after each other.  We also didn't want to pay the extra money but I'm trying to limit the amount of stuff we are lugging down there.  We will have about the same sized group as you too, 13 confirmed right now with possibly one more couple joining us.

        Are you bringing decorations for the tables for the reception?

        We are planning on just having a welcome dinner.... I wasn't sure about doing a rehersal either but I hoped like Jenlevergood, that Ariadna would just walk us through it when we meet with her to finalize everything.

         

        We are having about 16-18 people at our wedding and were planning on doing just the I-pod.  $450 does seem expensive for speakers. 

         

        Are you ladies planning on music at your ceremony and do you know how that will work with the I-pod??

          Has anyone had the ceremony (or planning to) earlier in the day? I'd like to wear my dress all day! :)  Is it too hot to do this??

            I would think it depends on what time of year.

              Hey Jenlevergood!  That would be awesome.... you guys are getting married on the 10th right?  I really want to limit the amount of things we are taking as well.  We are bringing decorations if you want to give me your email address i can send you pictures of what we're bringing... it's really nice we got all of it from Pier1.  Let me know what you think!!

                  Hello ladies! We are heading down to the Riviera Maya to shoot a couple of weddings at Azul Sensatori next week (Nov 12th through the 22nd). We are spending out vacation part of our trip at the Valentin though, so if any of you would like us to take some pictures of any particular part of the property, restaurants/bars, beach, etc, just let me know and we would be more than happy to take some for you. Anything that you need to see the layout and and for planning purposes. I will post again before we go in case anyone misses this. It will be our first time at the Valentin and we are super excited!! 

                   

                  :) Michelle

                    If anyone is looking for personalized items for their guests, I would highly recommend discountmugs.com.  We ordered personalized travel mugs that turned out amazing.  We were so happy that we ordered personalized cloth bags that we will use as our OOT bags but are the perfect size that can double as beach bags.  We are so happy with the quality of the products for the price and both boxes arrived before the delivery date, which is pretty amazing since you never know what to expect when shipping from the US to Canada.  Just a little FYI if anyone is interested, check out their website.

                      Anyone heard what a day pass allows guests to do? I have a couple that are staying off property and for them to come in for the wedding, they have to pay $95 pp for a day pass.. they rea;lly should just stay at the resort one nite. But does a day pass only allow you to be on the property from certain times? Can they eat and drink? I emailed ana but she has not responded yet.
