    This morning I submitted our deposit for DPA so now we are official!!
    My fiance and I took a trip to Riviera Maya early December to check out locations for our DW and this is one of the ones we visited. We loved it! Unfortunately my camera broke on the trip so I have no pictures to share, but if anyone has any questions a/b the resort I might be able to help w/ answering them. I met Jacy in person and she is super sweet!

    Happy planning everyone!!

      aug0208 - when is your wedding scheduled for?

      Any pictures are greatly appreciated girls!! This forum has been great during the planning process.
      We are looking to go on a site visit and I heard that sometimes the resort gives discounted rates if you already have your wedding booked. Does anyone know anything about this?

        Did you notice if the Lagoon area was close to any Bars/Restaurants? My niece is looking at either the adult pool or lagoon area, but doesn't want to have to set up a bar (additional cost?)
        She is also thinking about using small white lights for decoration and needs to know what areas can be decorated (columns, plantings, etc.) I know there is an additional cost to set that up. We are also looking at using luminarias for added light and decoration and need to know how many to order (depending on location). I suppose we could set those up ourselves, if there is an additional cost to set them up. Does anyone know if there is a flat fee for decorating or does each request come with a cost?
        She is waiting to hear back from Jacy, also on the colors of fabric available to decorate the gazebo. Her colors are fuschcia & orange. I told her if they're not available - just use white and add colored ribbons, bows and maybe, flowers. She is buying table overlays and using the white napkins. I believe she was told that the chair covers were only available to be used on the chairs in the gazebo (ceremony) and do not fit the pool-side chairs. Do you know if that is correct? If it is, could she have bows on the ceremony chairs and then they could move them to the reception area. Would they look ok just with bows on them?
        I found these fabulous orange irresdescent bows on line that she is going to use for the centerpieces. Jacy said to send her pictures and she'll see what she can do. She is hoping to use bird-of-paradise flowers, mixed with others, so hopefully, their florist can duplicate them.
        I just got my invitation this week, and they were ones I found on this site. They are so unique and different.
        This board has been invaluable in getting out information.
        Thanks!!!!

          The lagoon area is not big at all. It is not far from the Baracuda bar and El Patio but the beach near it is smaller.

            Would there be enough room there to set up 6 round tables? What are you thoughts on having it by the adult pool? Better?

            Thanks!!

                Our wedding is scheduled for Friday, November 6th 2009!

                I'm not sure how that works...we are going through my friend who is a travel agent so she is handling all of that for us. Sorry!

                  The adult pool is very nice-and because it is behind the resort the wind is not as bad. We went to the adult pool a lot because it is very windy in PA. Oceana is also located there and there is bar. It is very pretty and looks over the water
