    I'm not sure where we are going to do the cocktail hour. I was thinking in one of the bars but outside would be nice too! I'm liking the idea of doing the first dances at the cocktail hour so the professional photographer can capture it :)

      So I just found out from the wedding coordinator that you need a minimum of 25 people for the cocktail hour so that might be out for us...

        That sucks that you might not get to do the cocktail hour ... what about some sort of excursion with guests, like a boat ride or something??

        Also, you should ask Rocio to let you know if they get a cancellation for the 4pm wedding time slot. You might get lucky if something happens to whoever has it booked now decides to cancel.

          Wow- she has never mentioned the 25 person requirement to me at all! I'm hoping we get that many! If you don't have 25 people, and you really want to have a cocktail hour, you could see if she would be ok with you paying for 20 people for the cocktail hour, and then just having however many you have show up. Jennifer has a good idea though- you could do a group excursion- there are companies that do 'booze cruises' around that you might be able to hire for a floating cocktail hour! Good luck!

            Yeah, I only found out about the 25 people minimum because I asked. We will figure something else out. I thought about some outside excursion but I'm not sure about doing that in my dress. We may end up just getting everyone to meet in one of the lobby bars for drinks! Thanks for the tip Jen! I'm going to email Rocio now and let her know I'd like a later ceremony if anything becomes available!

              Have you seen the wedding gazebo? When I was there they showed me one which was near the snack bar.. facing the ocean but i know there is another one, more near grass and trees...

                Ashley- if you look in Sol and Matt's wedding slideshow that is sticky posted, the GP is one of the options. There is one bride there that was married at the garden gazebo. Its more of a garden setting, and I'm probably going for the ocean gazebo, but it looks like a gorgeous location for a wedding!

                    mexicobride- I was wondering if you have a phone number for Tamm's photos? I went to the site you posted and I LOVE their work! It would be a plus that since she'd have already done your wedding, she'd know the resort a little better. I emailed a few days ago, and I know they may be busy with weddings, but if you have a phone number I'd like to contact them with a follow-up. Thanks in advance!

                      coppergoddess - I actually don't have a phone number for Tamm's Photos. I've dealt with them only through email. Their email is tammsphotos@yahoo.com. She's been really quick with getting back to me. Maybe try emailing her again at that email address (instead of filling out the form on the site). I love her work too!! :)
