    You could probably fit 9 people, but it could be really tight especially when people are eating.  Can the hotel get you 10 person tables?  You could probably have 9 people seated at it comfortably.
     

    I hope you're right about the rectangular table...I'd love to be able to do 8 across.  Hopefully Ana gets back to me soon.

So frustrating.  I don't know about the dimensions for the long table but from looking at past pictures I think they seat 8 on each side so that would be 16 for for the whole table.  



     

    Such a fun idea!  Your guests are going to love them!  Btw that's a really good idea to source your items out of Mexico!  Are you getting anything else made down there? Oh and are you also doing OOT bags?

    They will be laid out in sand filled trays.  Mishka is based out of Puerto Vallarta and is sending the maracas to the resort attn to Ana so I don't have to bring these with me on plane.  

    JBDandJ-  I would not do assigned seating chart if I were using the long tables but if you are using the round tables, I recommend it only because I feel like your guests will expect to look for a seating plan and then you don't want them scrambling to find seats and arranging it by themselves. I feel like it creates less confusion by telling them. For a party of 35, you can go either way.  Hope that helps. You must be soooo excited with everything being soooo close!

      Hey!  I have around the same amount of guests and I'm going to have their seating assigned at each table.  I've been toying with the idea of a big seating chart and I think I may do a slightly modified one.  It's probably easier on the guest if they don't have to walk in circles around the room looking for their name card.  Instead of a big poster I was thinking of finding some elegant picture frames (5" x 7x") and each one would list the guests name for that table.  I would have them sit on the Guest Book table so as people arrive to the Reception they will see it right away.

        Those maracas are awesome, Sandy! What a fabulous idea!! (And so great that they can be sent right to the resort!) 

        Can I ask how much Mishka designs is charging for the maracas?

          @TropicLover-  Right now, the maracas are the only thing I am having done in Mexico. I plan on only bringing my fans (oriental trading), and my menu cards.  I am going back and forth with the OOT bags.  They seem like such a hassle and after pricing things out, it can get very expensive (we have 50 guests coming). I was thinking of doing something like a small gift and hand written letter thanking them for coming out. I don't know.

            Nice!  I'm bringing some fans down too!  I don't want anyone melting during the ceremony

              @LeahBecker: thanks!  Here is a link to Mishka's designs and her prices: http://mishkadesigns...ca-designs.html

              @Tropic Lover: Yeah, I agree about the OOT bags! LOL. Sewing kits?  I think something small and a handwritten letter will suffice.

                I did not like the house wine at all... considered it undrinkable... Sorry!

                I am planning on buying wine from Walmart and paying the corkage fee (I think it is $5 per bottle)

                  Oh good point on the corking!  $5 per bottle is not that much either.  Thanks for the heads up.

                    How is everyone wearing their hair on the big day? I've heard it can be quite windy, so I was thinking a loose updo to keep hair out of my face.
                    Does anyone have pictures or links to show how the hair salon on at the resort is? Have you heard any comments about that?

                      @LeahBecker- I plan on wearing my hair down in soft curls but with the wind, I am a bit worried.  I haven't heard anything about the resort salon.  Sorry. 

                       Are any of you guys going with a videographer???  My fiancĀ© and I feel like we might of overlooked not booking one. Everyone keeps telling us what a big mistake it is not to get it on video.  My photographer recommended Mike Canterell. If anyone is going with a videographer, please let me know who you're going with and if you know anything about Mike Canterell. Thanks!
