I might get the mariachi instead, but of course that's more money! :)
    I also am having a cocktail hour- I hired DJ bob from 7-11. I hired the Mariachi band for the cocktail hour 6-7. You may want to call DJ bob and see what he recommends. I know he did a site visit so he may be able to tell you if he can arrange his speakers so your guests can hear during the coctail hour?

      She also told me that alcohol is included at the Tropical Restaurant, but I'm also curious about how it is set up. Do we just order whatever drinks we want and the waiters bring them, or is there an actual bar set up where we would get our own drinks. I'd love to know!

      Gabriela told me the same thing! She did mention there are bars that our guests can go to in between or she did say some people wander to the beach to watch you take pictures. I don't think we should worry- I'm sure everyone will be fine and just grab a drink somewhere.

      As far at the Tropical Restaurant I was told it is open bar as well. Yes there is an actual bar that is set up right inside the Tropical Restaurant but I'm not sure if the waiters server drinks as well. I have seen past pictures of other weddings receptions in the Tropical where people are standing at the bar taking shots:-) and there is a batender behind the bar.
      As for alcohol this is the list I was provided by Gabreilla:

      *Martini, Campari, Dubonet, Pernod

      *Tequila EL Cuervo, Jimador, Don Julio, Cofrad­a, Pura Sangre, Sauza
      *Rum Habana a±ejo, Bacardi Solera, Bacardi A±ejo, Appletton
      *Gin Gordons, Beefater, Tanqueray
      *Vodka Gordons, Smirnoff, Eristoff
      *Whisky Passport, Ballantines, J. Walker red label, Bourbon
      *Brandy Veterano, Magno, Torres 10 A±os
      *Different kinds of liqueurs (coffee, mint, peach, banana, coconut, triple sec, Curacao, etc)

      She did mention if I have special requests let her know. I hope this helps!

        Jen,
        Thank you so much for your reply!! No i've not stayed at the Tucan before. I'v stayed next door at the Yucatan and loved the look of the hotel and the reveiws have been excellent too recently..... Its seems such an ideal place for all the family.

        Have you decided on a restaurant for the meal? is it a set meal?, (i got the impression from another wedding forum it's a limited choice "one dish for all" which i know some of my wedding party can be pretty fussy).....

        Andrea xx

        Im so excited to hear everyone's plans on here

            I'm getting married on the beach as well, in November. I'm sure it will all work out and I'll have enough of my friends telling people to get out of the way. ;-) Plus I don't think November is that busy down there, well at least it didn't seem that way when I went down this last November. I'm sure you can have the WC make sure no one gets in the way on the beach once you are down there.

                  PLEASE HELP!

                  I have been emailing the WCs at the Lindo for months now, and they have always gotten back to me within a few days. More recently, they responded much more quickly because my wedding date is nearing (April 14th!) For several days now, I have been emailing them with NO RESPONSE. The email I sent today even was SENT BACK to me! I am worried that their email is down or that they changed email or something. I have LOTS of questions I need answered before we leave in a week! ARRRGGG!!!!!!!!!!!

                  Can anyone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE either get me the contact info for the other WCs (at the Grand, Mar/Beach) or get me the new contact info for the Lindo/Maya WCs?!?!?!

                  I'm starting to get nervous here..... TIA!

                    I emailed Martha Rivas (Grand wedding coordinator) yesterday as well as her manager Mateo and both emails were sent back to me by the postmaster! Is that what your experiencing too? I think then something must be going on with their email! Do you still want her email?

                      Same here I emailed the Beach/Del Mar and my email got returned also. I sent it again today and will let you know if it goes through. I wouldn't worry, I'm sure it was just down for a bit and will be back up soon!
