May12 - I am so jealous & wish I was there still Congratulations & Best Wishes to you!
At EPM the sand is really soft unlike some of the other resorts in Mexico. No worries.
I had the spa do my hair and make-up, Sonia (sp?) and she really did an amazing job. I wish I could have brought her home with me lol A few curls came out by the end of the night but my hair is fine & thin and with the heat I expected it.
I did have a trial but it was a bit different the day of & turned out better. The make-up was more and stayed on better too. She made me pic my make-up style from a book they have thats huge and for my hair I did not have a picture. I basically said curl it all to the side & she did whatever she wanted. Guess I am too trust worthy but it turned out great.
I am not gonna lie, it was hot!!! But with all the excitement & everything going on it was fine & no one seemed to care (too much!)
We have been to EPM 2 other times both in September with no mosquito problem at all. I found it odd that it literally was from about 7:00 - 7:15 only. Even our photographers said they will be gone in 10 minutes. I am not sure if maybe because it wasn't super windy that day or what but it did not ruin anyone's time & were gone quickly.
I loved having our reception on the Spice Terrace. It was great. Nice views, private & the perfect amount of space for us. I know I said it before but the staff there really went above & beyond for us all.
We had an ocean view rooftop terrace and loved it. However, next time we go we wont be getting that room. We usually do the swim-out but thought we should do the best for this occasion!
Here are a few of our pics (cant wait to see our pro pics!! That's the hardest part, the wait.)
We had the silver package which comes with 24 photos. When we went to the photo booth to get them they said they took 65 pics & we could either get all 65 on a disk or pick out 24 pics to get printed which we did not want. We would rather the digital copies so they gave us all our photos on the disk. They came out nice but it was basically with a better digital camera.
We also loved our photographers who even till today my mom is still raving about. I sat them with her & her girlfirends for dinner & they loved them so much too. If anyone is still looking into outside photographers use them!!

Welcome back! Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time! Congratulations. I have a question about the mosquitos. When I've been to Mexico in the past, they've never been a problem. Maybe it's the resort? Do you have any recommendations for our dinner reception that's either partially indoors or completely indoors? We liked the CECO terrace and the Lobster house the best...
