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 email@example.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!
