Well it's definitely a small world because I'm also using Blue Petal Destination Weddings! Who are you working with?
The beach location looks very nice for a wedding. One of the other brides on here (Sandy) mentioned that the Coral side of the resort is the most private beach location. I think we're going to do ours on the Lobby Terrace. I'm not 100% sure where the reception will be as we're waiting to see if we can do it in one of the restaurants and if that doesn't work out I think we'll remain on the terrace for the whole event. I'm waiting to back on the food options, however I'm not sure if 2012 is out yet. Have you chosen your menu items for your dinner? Or have you seen the 2011 menu?
Favors are tough one. From all the weddings I've been too it's mostly been editable. I've had truffles, personalized m&m's, chocolate, etc. I guess for Mexico you need to have heat friend favors.

Ana has been great to hear from down there as well, I've been impressed so far. I'm so glad to have our guests booked, feels much better to not have to worry about who is and isn't coming, etc. I think we'll have a few people who decide to book closer to next March, some just couldn't commit so far in advance.
We'll be doing our ceremony on the beach, have always wanted to get married on the beach! And one of the terraces for a private reception as well. We've got Juan Navarro booked for our photos, I tried for Sascha Gluck, but was unfortunately booked. Juan has great pricing as well, so keeping my fingers priced!
We're in the middle of coming up with an idea for favors as well, I'd like something unique and that our guests will use again! I can't even remember what the favors have been for all the weddings I've been to over the years, lol!
I'm not overly picky on the flowers and cake, our colors are pink and turquoise, and we'll just get whatever flowers look best!
