    I'm not sure if there are any..it might be the Japanese, but not sure. I am having my dinner at the steakhouse and the Italian the night before, and neither are open air. I know the seafood is inside as well. We leave three weeks from tomorrow....I'm freaking out a little!

      Oh my gosh, so soon! I will just miss you by two weeks. My mom and I are going for a site visit July 26th!

      Best of luck -- can't wait to hear your review! Are you doing a cocktail hour by the way? And if so, where? I wonder if there's an outdoor option.

        Hi! It's been a little while!! Things have been so hectic @ work and home!! We're getting married @ the Del Mar so not sure about the Lindo. I know the Del Mar has an open air restaurant. I think it's the Italian. That's where we picked for our sit down reception. We are also doing the cocktail hour in an area right outside the restaurant. Good luck!!!

            Oh wow thats too bad I'll miss you! I am in disbelief that I leave in less than a week.... Thankfully missing the storm. I hope there isn't too much damage.

            I am having my guests meet for cocktails at the Maya Lobby bar- the Snake bar. We are not doing a formal cocktail hour because I think its ridiculous that they charge you. I just asked my guests to go there after the ceremony while I do pictures, then I will meet them there, and we will go to our dinner at the Italian at 7:30. We are having a huge home reception, so we are just having dinner and cake and thats all. No private room or DJ, because we are paying for the whole mexico trip, wedding, and the home reception with over 200 people!
            Mayra has been good the last few days with communicating with me and making my spa appointments for hair, nails, etc. We are trying to nail down flowers...i cannot decide what to do for the bridesmaids or the beach flowers.

              Less than a week!! Wow!

              Oh, I hope there's not too much damage ! Good luck with your final decisions :-)

              I don't blame you for not doing a formal cocktail hr/rececption if you're having a huge AHR! We are not having an AHR, so that's why we're doing it up more formal in Mexico.

                Hey ladies! I'm back! I'm having withdrawal..... we had an amazing time. I've been running around today doing things just to get back to reality. We already went to social security and changed my name! (which the mexico marriage certificate is FINE to do that and it took two seconds..)
                Everything was amazing..I wish I never stressed anything. The Lindo was great...the maya too. I will do a review when I can get my head on straight!
                Just quickly...we had our rehearsal dinner at the Italian, and our reception at the Steakhouse. the steakhouse was amazing...the food, service, atmosphere...i loved it. They set us up away from people so it was really pretty private! It was more than I could have imagined..
                my flowers were awesome, canopy flowers awesome....i used the hotel photographers which were also great. My dvd came out awesome and was ready the next day. The italian restuarant was good, but the atmosphere is nothing great. I would recommend the Cajun restaurant instead..... I ate there another night and it was fabulous. my coctail hour was at the Maya lobby..awesome. nothing structured but everyone loved it there.
                I'm just still on cloud nine and I'm sad its all over! I'll put something together with more info and pictures soon. feel free to ask any questions that are burning !

                  Congratulations, Amy!!

                  I'm SO glad to hear that everything was fabulous! Did you have your AHR yet?

                  Like you, I know that I will look back and think "why the hell did I waste so much time stressing?"

                  I cannot wait to see some pics!! And if you happen to have any pics of the different restaurants, in particular, I'd love to see them!!

                  I'd glad to hear you loved the Cajun. Is there anything in particular that you ate at the Cajun that you'd recommend? We are thinking of having our private reception there -- what do you think of the space for a reception? Big enough to put a dancefloor, head table, the works, and not be cramped? We're estimating 70 people.

                  Again, congrats and can't wait to read your review!!

                      I am also getting married at the Del Mar and am having our reception in the Italian. As for the cocktail hour I havn't thought much about that yet. That is a good idea about having it right outside the restaurant. Is there a bar there? The only bar I can think of is at the pool. Who is your WC?
