    lmuze,

     

    Just read your review. It was great! Few questions for ya:

     

    The resort videographer - was this a 'true' video, as in footage of your ceremony with sound, etc or just a slide show of photos from your ceremony?

     

    Please give us more deets on this mexican restaurant! Sounds fun!

     

    oh and I don't think you went overboard on decor at all, it looked gorgeous

     

    Congrats!

      Hi Islandgirl910,

       

      The floor is concrete/cement so you can dance anywhere, no need for special dance floor. We just danced on one corner, although you could choose to dance on the other side (the steakhouse is sort of divided into two section with a half wall in between), but we wanted to have everything on one side and we had plenty of space with 75 people.

        Hi,

         

        The resort videographer did take a "true" video. They attached a mike on my husband (then Fiance) and the minister so when everything is heard clearly (even the wind) and the video quality is pretty good, after the ceremony/picture session the videographer asked us to do some poses and those are the ones i had issues with (not the quality, just the corniness of the posing). It's not such a big deal though, a friend of mine will edit the beginning out and it will be perfect.

         

        The Mexican restaurant as I said is open between 11pm - 7am, they don't serve alcohol drinks, we sneaked drinks from the club before they closed...another thing i liked about this resort, you can take your drinks anywhere, for instance, their room service does not include alcoholic beverages but you can go to the bar and get as many drinks as you can carry back to your room and it's all good...anyway, back to the Mexican restaurant, they have a salad & fixing bar and someone who mans a grill with assortment of meats for burgers, hot dogs, grilled meats (beef & chicken). We went there twice, the day of the wedding and once after we returned from Margaritaville Night Club in downtown MoBay, so both times we were amply buzzed, it may not be as good as we thought. We had so much fun though. 

         

        Don't miss a trip to Margaritaville if you are a night owl. There is a free hourly shuttle  to the club from 11pm - 1am andreturn trip from 1am - 2:30am.

        lmuze,

          Imuze,

          Hey sweetie!  I did get the response to the PM and thank you!  I wanted to ask about the videographer also, but I wanted to wait for your response to Breeze.  I just received my tentative bill this week and Nicole put the videographer's price as $350 for the ceremony only. $200 sounds a lot better so I guess I will just wait and see once I get there!

            I am so excited about Margaritaville! I love it. So glad there is a free shuttle as wasn't sure if Iberostar would do that. Counting down the days!

              No problem-  Heres my Travel Agent.  I actually found her from Lisa on this site.  She is very good.  Just tell her Carol Stephenson referred you.

               

               

               




              Thank you so much for this info, this was a huge issue for me too. At first I was thinking about just leaving it up to my guest to schedule their travel arrangements but after doing more homework it seems better to hook up with a travel agent to keep things more organizes. Can you tell me what company you are going through? Thanks!

                Thanks again for the review and all your comments. 

                 

                • Do you have any pictures of the club? 
                • When you say it looks like a club, do you think it can be pulled off for a private event? I was thinking of having a private cocktail hour/dancing after dinner
                • What was included for the "private reception"? Is the DJ included like with the Disco/Club?

                 

                 

                Thanks in advance

                      @ Mrsdeloatch2be and @ Delgadot- I am from Philly too! Nice too see Philly girls getting married at the Iberostar. I personally wasn't impressed with prices of the travel agents I found in Philly so I used Kelly from "GoIberostar". She had the best prices.
