      Does anyone have info. on a cocktail reception? Prices/location etc. or any other info would be helpful. We are considering one as there is so much time in between, but the costs are very quickly adding up!

        Christina - Erika actually advised against having a cocktail party in between my wedding and reception. My wedding was at 4 and the reception started at 7. After standing around mingling for a while (they provide champagne after the ceremony) my guests just made their way up to the White Sands lobby bar around 5 b/c our reception was at La Laguna. It actually worked out really well b/c some people stopped back at their rooms - heck a couple of our friends went swimming b/c it was so freaking hot! We had a cocktail party the night before the wedding at the Bar Las Rocas at the saltwater pool and it was a great location. I know when we were picking locations there were 3 to choose frome - I just can't remember the other 2. I know that Las Rocas is open to the public until 6 so I'm not even sure that you could have a private cocktail party there or at any of the other locations earlier than that.

          Thanks for the info. We were originally thinking that because our ceremony time is so early (2:00) that we wanted to plan something in between. I think we will just have everyone gather somewhere for a few drinks instead of spending the extra money for food. If people are hungry, they can get something! It's a good opportunity for afternoon siestas too!

            Hello Ladies,

            Just wondering if anyone knows how much it is to have the draped ceiling fabric at the private reception?

            Thanks!

              I was wondering that too. Have you e-mailed the WC's yet? Let us know what you find out if you did.

                The white fabric was draped at my reception and it wasn't extra - I didn't even know I was getting it :)

                  Thanks GoCubs!
                  Really?! I thought I would have to pay extra!
                  hmmm... maybe it is included in the private reception, that would be great!

                    Sweet deal. I don't remember reading anything about that. Maybe you're right and it is included with the reception costs.

                      Sent my first email to Rocio, and heard back within two days, nice!
                      Reserving my wedding date for December 1, 2010.
                      She mentioned a $300 USD deposit to hold the date.. How did you ladies go about paying this?
                      Thanks!
