    Toscana:

    -Can do one large table outside of the restaurant

    -If inside, would be smaller tables

     

    Agave:

    -Can accommodate a large table in their private room

     

    Spice Terrace:

    -Can accommodate 30 people at large table for rehearsal dinner

    -100-120 people for dinner reception

     

    Ballroom (Inside CECO Terrace)

    -Can accommodate 60 people

     

     

    I have pictures of Spice Terrace and the Ballroom if you need them.

    Hi!

     

    I just sent you a PM hoping that you'd be able to send me photos. Let me know. I can't recall if I gave you my gmail...sorry! But any pictures will help so much. Have a great day.

Here is a link to a slideshow he did for us that we put up on YouTube. It'll give you a taste of all of it....

        Hi Amanda,

         

        I'd start communicating with her asap - so you can start your planning as well. Plus you can give your guests as much info as possible. Now, she may not respond quickly but she will eventually and you'll feel much better. The hardest pill to swallow is not knowing where your reception will be held until 1 month prior to the wedding. EEKS! But hopefully it's your wherever your first choice is.  I'm getting married March 28, 2013 :)

         

        Best of luck and happy fun planning!

                Yeah many have stated how things should be uniform. On the small Spice Terrace. I still need to schedule hair and makeup with the salon but apprehensive because most likely I'll do my own hair and makeup. I use airbrush makeup and I am extremely picky abt my hair (I own a salon).:confused: Thanks K

                  Hi all! I'm actually getting married this week here in London, but then we're doing a vow renewal and celebration at EPM January 2013 for our American friends/fam. Anyone else with January 2013 plans??

                   

                  I attended a webinar via destinationweddings.com, but because we live in the UK, the rates ended up being more competitive through the website. The woman who did the webinar - not Nayeli - said we can customize the packages; anyone have experience with this? For example, we don't need a videographer, or things like hair/makeup or crazy pictures since it's technically not our wedding, but we would like things like a champagne toast on the beach post-ceremony. Or maybe a semi-private or private cocktail hour the Friday everyone arrives (no wedding party so no rehearsal dinner). 

                   

                  One more question - is the live music for 1 hr that is included in the gold package for either the ceremony or cocktail hour? Has anyone extended the time to include both? Also, what are the prices for DJs? We have a lot of info on prices, but nothing about music. 

                   

                  Thanks! Love seeing everyone's amazing pictures!

                    Hi Ladies,

                     

                    Has anyone figured out how they are getting their dress to Cancun?  I am flying United and have heard they are not very nice about hanging up your dress for you. I really don't want to stuff it in a suitcase or in the overhead bin!
