Hi Carley,


We got married this past May at PA (wonder if it was our wedding that Kashad saw...) anyway, at first we were told we could have a private reception at Sabor, then we were told they didn't allow that, so we were offered Cafe del Mar. At first, I was kind of disappointed, since our rehearsal dinner was a beach bbq at CdM, so that would mean both nights, both parties in the same place. In the end, I'm really glad we had the reception at the cafe. There is a nice gazebo there with a wood floor that seated the 25 of us really comfortably. There's also a dance floor with a DJ booth. I brought my iPod and hired the hotel "music coordinator" for an extra $100, and he managed hooking everything up and making sure the music for the special dances (our first, me and my dad) was right. Bonus: he ran the iPod for the ceremony itself too! The DJ fee was $500 - $750, so we saved a lot of money by making our own mix. The hotel wouldn't let us stay past 10, however, so it meant that by the time we finished taking photos, eating, cutting cake, making toasts, we had about an hour to dance. After that, the "grownups" went to bed, and the rest of us hit downtown Isla Mujeres for more dancing and a nightcap. Send me an email and I'll be happy to answer any more questions for you. I understand your confusion with all thiskatherinemarbury@yahoo.com-- I definitely felt like I got a different answer on a different day with everything! I just stayed focused on the fact that the beach is beautiful no matter what the decor looks like, and that our friends and families had a great time!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
