@AshleyLynn
Ceremony music is included in all packages. So the sound system will be available free of charge and someone from the resort plays it for you. It's cued by the wedding coordinator.

Where a fee comes into play is at your reception. If you have a private event you can use your Bose system. If it's semi private you can't.

When you say that they have the speaker system and will play it during the ceremony, does that mean I just give them my iPod for the music I want? I have a couple of specific songs in mind and want them to be played.

I didn't give them anything but the song names and artist. If there is a special version you would like make sure to mention it.

At our meeting she confirmed the songs and then found one on u-tube to ensure she had the right version of it / right song, as it wasn't one they had used in the past.

 

She told me if I was worried I could bring them on my ipod but I trusted in them.

 

The music at the ceremony is all what you choose.   The reception is where you can just give them a genre and they go with it.

nooooo I now have to work my budget AGAIN! I can't believe they took the sound system away. Thats actaully really lame. Most places offer that as an option. I'm kind of disappointed. My FI and I have bluetooth outdoor speakers (UE Boom) but I'm not sure that they would be loud enough :( Back to the drawing board...

      Does anyone have the options for table layouts? Adriana mentioned it in person and said I would get the choices sent to me later if I booked.

      Layouts as in how the tables are set up or how they are decorated?

      I was offered round or long tables. She sent me 2 pics I believe. I will see if I can find them.

      I was told they prefer 8-10 per round table. I just left it to them and what they did was have the head table at the front and 2 tables to the right and left sides. Which created a dance floor right in the middle.

      If you want an idea how it was set up with the buffet tables and everything let me know.

        Set up, not decor. I remember her saying something about a ushape, or round tables etc.

        I drew a map! As mentioned in my disclaimer - the proportions are probably way off cuz it's from memory.  In fact I know the chapel and palapa are closer together than I implied.  I can't recall just how close the disco is.  It's close enough for convenience but far away enough for privacy.

        Yes it's close. I actually hopped onto the shuttle to go to the disco after our wedding. It was taking awhile to fill so I got off and walked around the corner (bushy area) and I could see it hahaha so I walked there. We all LOL that it was that close and we almost got a ride. That said it is still far enough away for privacy. I could not hear their music whatsoever.

        Chapel and palapa are close, you are right. Just across the 'road' from eachother but again very private due to the greenery.

        Hi ladies!

         

        A few questions

         

        1) in the picture above - is the "ceremony" the Playa Nueva location? Do you know where the Playa Yaluka beach location is?

         

        2) Any thoughts/comments on the hair/makeup artists at the resort? Do you know what products they use? I am thinking about paying for an external vendor to do my hair and makeup - http://www.saratamargo.com/

         

        3) Photographers at the resort - thoughts/comments?

         

        Many thanks!

         

        Alex
