      I got regular responses from Araceli Tovar and the e-mail address I used was weddings.mx@sirenishotels.com.

       

      She will respond to you, and she is very helpful.  I found that the closer we got to the wedding the quicker she responded.  Good luck with all your planning.

        Does anyone know if you can have an actual cocktail hour or is it just champagne after the ceremony?

            Hi everyone! I'm a newbie to the forum, but I'm so glad I found it! There's so much great info here. I'm getting married at GS on October 14, 2011. Has anyone had any experience with having welcome bags put in your guests' rooms? What kind of things did you include? Did you have any trouble with them being delivered, etc.? Looking forward to chatting with all of you!

              @ smokey82 - We paid extra to have an actual cocktail hour with light snacks in addition to the champagne toast. I can't remember the price but I did post a review in this thread and it included the additional costs. There were three packages to choose from for cocktails and food, we had 39 people at our wedding and I believe it worked out to be an additional $800-$1000 for the cocktail hour. Our guests loved the food and the cocktail hour and it allowed us to sneak away and have our pictures done. A thing to keep in mind is that the palapa is far away from the resort and they take everyone out on golf carts, so if you don't arrange for something for them to do or eat they will just be standing on the beach waiting while you take pictures.

                  We did bags with fans, candles, small photo album, thank you tag, T-shirts (part of a game and everyone wore them the night of the rehersel dinner), shampoo and conditioner samples - thats all I can remember right now.  We put them all together the day after we arrived and because of the T-shirts (each one with a different saying on it) we had specific bags to go to each room.  The groom got all the room numbers from the desk, we put them on the bags and the bell boy took us around to deliver them.  He didn't feel comfortable going into peoples rooms himself, so he opened them up and we put the bags inside.  They drove us around in the cart and did each room and we were done in about 30 - 45 min.

                    We did the palapa, and we had the presidential package. 
                    We had 24 people and the resort provided appatisers (which very few people touched, and champagne on the beach for the guests while we did pictures.  We also did not have a photographer, other than the one at the resort, so we encouraged people to join us in taking pictures.    The bar in the palapa opened before the reception started so guest that wanted a beer or another drink, could go into the palapa and order that.  There was no additional cost to us for this.

                      Hi JacksonGirl: Look at OOT bags thread, there are so many pictures and a list of things that people put. You'll absolutely love that thread, I spent 2 days reading all the threads related to OOT (out of town) bags :). They also talk about what was used and what wasn't used by their guests.
