Manda - don't want to rush you as you're obviously busy and basking in the glow, but I have a few Q's!  (We leave in ELEVEN days!).

 

-  How long did it take you guys to get to the resort from the airport?  What were the buses like!?!

-  How were your excursions?  Were they worth it?

-  Did you write your own vows?  How did the ceremony go?  What music did you use?

 

 

Anything else you have time for would be awesome!  How was your hair!?!?!  haha, I'm so nervous.

Hello Ladies,

 

I am also new to this forum and found tons of useful information. I am getting married on May 4th 2012. We have a total of 32 guests confirmed. I was curious to find out what you are doing for the reception. I was told the latest you can have a private cocktail outside is 11pm... I would hate to have to break the party at that time. What are you ladies planning on doing??

Congrats and welcome!!!

 

I'm having a private reception at La Laguna, from 7-11.  Rocio said that I can stay at La Laguna for an extra hour if I pay $5/pp, but that we can also go to the lobby of the Colonial where there will be music and dancing until 1AM, free of charge.  That's what we are going to do!

We are doing the same, 7-11 at La Laguna, then to the colonial lobby.

 

Does anyone know exactly what kind of cord I need to hook up to their speaker system, usb cable or 3.5 mm jack or something else?

 

Still trying to find out if they have stereo system on the beach for ceremony or only for gazebo cause ours is on the beach.

thanks for your feedback, we also reserved the La Laguna from 7-11 but I was told we couldn't stay there any longer then 11pm?

 

Also I was looking at pics of the Las Rocas and now I can't decide where I want to have the private reception.... so many options!!?? wacko.gif and there is a cost for everything!!

 

I just want it to be perfect!

 

Are you Ladies going to put together your own playlist or are you looking in getting a DJ?

 

JND2012 your wedding is coming up very soon, you must be very excited!!!

If you want to stay past 11, you can get an extra hour but it's $5 per person, and only allows you to stay one hour more.  Rocio told me about the option of going to the Colonial lobby until 1AM for no charge, so that's what we're doing. 

 

I'm putting together my own playlist.  When I got a quote from DJ Mana (I think that's what they're called) it was almost $1000 and I couldn't justify the extra cost!

 

We leave next Sunday, 9 more days!  I'm so nervous, doing all of the last minute things, terrified I'll forget something.  We're currently making reservations for our girls/guys night (dinner), and our family dinner the night before the wedding.  We have a welcome brunch the day after we arrive planned too.  I'm almost done the favors, pick up my dresses tomorrow, still have to do the playlist and figure out what we're packing!  I feel so anxious!

That's alot to think about I'm sure everything will go well. You just need to make it on that plane! The DJ option seems really expensive and probable not necessary! Are you doing the semi-private dinner? We reserved the Portofino it looks like alot of brides on this forum are doing the same thing! I am so excited for you! Your big day is almost here.

 

We are already paying 10$/pp for the La Laguna 7-11pm so I don't know if I want to pay any additional fees, I'll look at the budget for the 100 time.

 

What are you doing for the wedding favors... we decided to make little bags with trip essentials: toothpaste, scoop, hand sanitizers... and we are also giving our guest a flip flop luggage tag I thought it was a nice touch.

 

Did you take the Crystal or Diamond package? and which location did you pick for the ceremony.

 

It's a great idea to have a welcome brunch... get the group together I like that I may tried to reserve a restaurant to do the same.

 

Can't wait to see the pictures of your wedding... do you have any pictures for the Colonial Lobby
