If we get teh number of guests I'm anticipating, aproximately 50 - 60 ppl, then we'll have a private reception. But mostly because all private functions are free if your group books enough room nights.
I've seen some pics that their decor company sent me and it looks nice, but it comes with a price.
As for review of musicians you should check out the Moon Palace threads. Lots more brides get marreid there and have discussed all of that stuff.

I'm also curious who all is getting a private reception--- is it worth it seeing as everything they would be serving would be essentially things that all my guests could get for "free" anyway since its all inclusive.. or does it seem too informal to let people just all meet up at a less busy bar? I dont expect to have more than 20-25 people. We'll probably invite 50-60 and I expect about half to show up. Has anyone seen the set ups they do for the private reception for less than 30 people? No decorations, I presume, which is fine...
Last question (for now) -- also curious about people's opinions on the soloists or mariachi bands. I was thinking of getting the harpist for the ceremony --- anyone heard anything about which sounds better-- harpist or mariachi band?
