    Here are a few photos, there are so many that it's hard to chose my favorites.  We did a trash the dress session a few days after the wedding and it was so much fun and those are some of my favorite shots.  Ashley from Blue Lens was awesome and she loves doing the TTD shoot.

     

    Also, I forgot to mention that we had a romantic dinner on the beach that was included in our package.  It was absolutely amazing and we would recommend booking one to any one that is interested.  It is an extra $200 US if it's not included in your package and very worth it.  It was just us on the beach with fresh flowers on our table, surrounded by Tiki torches and our own private waiter serving us a 5 course dinner.  Fabulous!!!  So romantic and private for a special night.

        Jen - do you know what the chairs are like for the reception? Are they nice enough to use uncovered?

          Hi Ladies! Congrats to all of you and good luck with all of your planning! I am so happy that i found this website, because you all have great advice and we can help each other out! I am getting married at the Valentin on 11-11-11!! I am so excited!

           

          I have literally just booked the date, so I have a ton of work ahead of me.  Save the dates are my next priority.  I definitely want to give enough time in advance for my guests so I want to send them out by the end of this month/beginning of Feb. 

           

          On another note, I am not sure if i want to book a dj either.  How did the ipod speakers work out for you guys? was it entertaining enough? how was the disco afterwards?

           

          I haven't picked my wedding package yet.  Do any of you have pictures of the reception places/options? Do you think it would be a good idea to bring centerpieces?

           

          Thank you and happy planning!!

            Ah! You're the person who beat me to the date! lol. We were really aiming for 11-11-11 because my grandparents were married on that day, but our travel agent was so slow getting back to us, I missed out. :( Now we're aiming for 11-10-11, so we may see you there!

              Hey Ahollo02,

               

              I hope that I'm spelling her name right but yes her english was great.  I actually really enjoyed spending most of my day with her, she was an awesome person :)

                Hey JBean,

                Check with you wedding coordinator but I'm pretty sure that the chair covers come with all of the packages that include a private reception.  I'm not sure what the chairs looked like without the covers but we rented the chair bows for the ceremony and they moved them to the chairs at the reception as well.

                  From what I saw in all the pictures, the chairs are folded chairs that are covered with a white sheet. It looks very tacky in my opinion. Ariadna sent me the extras PDF file for decor. The company that Valentin deals with is called Planner 1 Events and they have other chairs to rent. Since we're about 26 people at our wedding, I decided to go with white Tiffany chairs. I contacted Fernanda at Planner 1 Events by e-mail, she quoted me 231$ for the 26 chairs. They will come and set them up at the ceremony (gazebo) and then move them to the reception (Mexican terrace) for this price.

                   

                  I know.. it seems like a small detail, but I'm thinking more about comfort and look at this point. The Tiffany chairs are beautiful without chair bows so I didn't order any.

                   

                  As for centerpieces, Ariadna wanted me to pay 35$ per vase (I asked to rent 5 square glass vases)... and that price was WITHOUT flowers so they're nuts.

                   

                  I'm going to purchase plastic vases and cover them with purple and fushia fabric and bring them down with me.. my bridesmaid bouquets will serve as centerpieces.. I'll ask them to put their bouquets in the vases on each table.

                    OOOOOOOO Girl,

                    I love Valentin.  The Chapel is so beautiful and the hotel is amazing.  I have never been to a wedding there but I have stayed there many times.  I love this place.  Any questions you have about the resort, holla at cha gurl.

                      Wow, that's a lot to pay for chairs. I would definitely do it if I could though, I'm not a fan of the covered chairs either.

                       

                      That is NUTS what they wanted to charge for centrepieces!
