    We're thinking of doing a tasting menu... smaller plates... maybe 5-6 courses but much smaller portions. We'll theme it in some way- their recommended dishes, our favorite dishes, or a cultural focus. It's been a thought we've had but sounds possible on their end.

      Hey Everyone!!! I'm sooo excited we finally got our date confirmed today - we're getting married December 3rd 2010! It seems like so far away...but I'm sure it will be here before we know it!

      My FI and I went to EPM last March for a week's vacation and abolustely LOVED it!
      We were most impressed with the food...we both have food allergies (he is allergic to Gluten and I am lactose intolerant) and neither one of us got sick the entire time which was really impressive!

      Can anyone email me the .pdfs for the menu / cake / packages and such? I know that it may take some time for Yamina to send it after reading through this thread...(rebecca.ooyen@gmail.com)

      Looking forward to planning and chatting with you all!
      Rebecca

          Hey Ladies...Where is everyone having their cocktail hour? I would like to have ours at the beach lounge..but i read on another blog it would have to be done by 6pm so the lounge can open. Any idea if this is true?

            At Excellence Riviera Cancun the cocktail hour at the X-Lounge must finish by 6pm so I assume it would be the same at EPM. How long are you having between the end of the ceremony and the start of the cocktail hour?

              I had my reception in the Spice Terrace which is an open air lounge patio in Spice Restaurant. The space was AMAZING. I highly recommend if you can get it. Yamina advised me that they don't typically allow DJs in that location because it is close to building 9. However, they let me have it so I'm sure they will let others also. The people in the building 9 rooms facing the terrace didn't seem to be annoyed. Some of them actually came out and started dancing in the hallway outside their rooms. HAHAHA. It was hysterical!

              BTW, I am going to post a pic of Yamina and I (even though I look horrendous as I had just gotten back from scuba diving)! She is so cute and such a doll! Don't ake the mistake that I did and panic and worry when she didn't get back to me right away. She is excellent at what she does and will bring everything together for your weddings!

              I'm getting married the Excellence Riviera Cancun but if I was getting married at EPM I would definately love to have the reception where you had it. Your reception looked awesome.

                Hey Traci,

                I got married at 6pm and had my cocktail hour at x-lounge. Whenever our cocktial hour was over was when when the lounge opened. Hope this helps.

                      I like cakes 5, 6, or 7....I would love to know the options as far as fillings and icings! Yum....I'm getting hungry lol!


                      Welcome Caroline, Blissful, and Butterfly!! You are going to LOVE this site. It has been a lifesaver for me! I would be completely lost without it! Happy planning!
