So after all your comments about all the people around in their not so flattering attire, I'm thinking about maybe bringing some kind of stakes and tie some ribbon to them....making an implied "fence" around the ceremony area..? Do you think that would be too much? If Cecilia would let me do it, it might help make it more obvious that people need to not pass the ribbon. Obviously they could just walk around it if they were really nosy, but it might at least send the beach go-ers the message that it's a "private" space. Thoughts?

I told my FI about what you guys posted about your experiences and he said he'd have some of his friends stand "guard", but I don't want them to have to deal with that during the ceremony. So we'll do what we can and go with the flow.
Thanks again for everyone getting back to my questions so quickly, you guys are great! I'll be sure to return the favor for future SMB brides after I've gone through it all...

This may have changed in the past few months, but I know about a year ago when a few hotels were shut down and brides were being shuffeled around resorts, those who had children even just attending the ceremony and reception (not staying at the resort) were not allowed to do so...
However, like I said, perhaps this has changed... maybe another SMB bride knows...? Or, may mean waiting for an e-mail back from Cecilia

Our cocktail hr was outside and just as we were moving in for the reception the bugs came out. We all would have been so uncomfortable if we were staying outside for the reception as well. Maybe the bugs would not be a problem and maybe they would. I'm just the type of person that wouldn't take that chance. Also, maybe the bugs wouldn't be that bad down towards the water more where there is more of a breeze, but we ate at those restaurants and we had a slight bug problem there at night.
I agree that those restaurants are beautiful and would be nice for a reception, but I'm just not one to take chances.
(I've heard it all really depends on the weather more than the time of year...i..e if it rains, and then is warm and humid after, the bugs come out...if it stays warm and sunny, apparently they're not very bad...)
So, yes, if you don't want to take any chances, maybe stick to completely inside, rather than an open-air palapa...
BUT, if you're not TOO worried about the bugs, these restaurants are beautiful:-)

However, the fans do provide some air conditioning and keep inside the palapas cool-ish... of course, it's not as cool as being in an enclosed room in air conditioning, but perhaps in the evening, when it cools a bit outside, it would be okay...?

Here is a picture my photographers took of the foyer. The actual ballroom is in a room to the right.
The foyer is so much nicer than the actual ballroom. You can have your reception in the foyer. I had 26 people and we could have easily fit in this area. And you have the terrace for the cocktail hour if you want. It's all at the end of the main building so it's more private b/c no one is walking past to get anywhere else. Also, you have to make sure that there is no other event going on in the ballroom that evening.
