Unlike most of you who planned well ahead of time, i got engaged last december and planned to be married in Mexico this novemberish but didnt set dates or the resort untill end of July, My wedding co-ordinator is Eleane Joya and she is pretty good with everything- ive only had the 1 coordinator- however i havent been booked at the resort for that long.
We are doing the free package too as we have 41 of us going down there and couldn't justify paying for the upgraded packages AND THEN paying the extra per person above 20 people. also i dont care to have some of the tings on the upgraded packages and after some research i found that it was more affordable to do the things i want separatly and just add the things i want.
after alot of back and forth we decided to do the reception dinner at oceana restaurant with just their set menu items- i havent heard of anyone doing this yet so i dont know how it will go but we will see, the resort told me they would set up 4 tables of 10 but Eleane said they cant promise we will all be together?!?!? WHICH WILL REALLY SCREW MY PLAN UP!! but i plan to stress to her to talk to that restaurants servers and ect. to make sure we are all together and then while we are down there i am going to go to the restaurant and tip someone who's working that night to ensure we are in the same area....here we will do dinner, cake and champagne toast... maybe we should have paid for the reception but we decided to do a bonfire after the dinner so we thought we would just do dinner then bonfire... at the bonfire we will set up our own bose speakers and ect. and hang around the fire- dance and relax... I hope my plan turns out good as its very basic compared to what others do- and there isnt as much structure for dancing and cake and ect.
