OMGosh - yes, it was the most freakishly hot day! We did pretty good with our reception outside though. We were right on the ocean it was very breezy. Your pics are so gorgeous!! Congrats again!

Thanks for the awesome detailed review!! They need to put your siggy picture on the MP website, because after I saw it I wanted my wedding in the gazebo, with the mariachi band AND rose pedals! LOL

 

While you were there, did you notice any restaurants that might be nice for my rehearsal dinner? I wish they had a beachside restaurant, or an outside terrace or something.....

Thanks! We got an 8X10 in our package and I just framed it :-)

 

We had our rehearsal dinner outside @ one of the patios b/c it was free with the amount of people we had. I would definitely request the rooftop sushi bar on the grand side, it's on top of the Caribbean Restaurant. The view is amazing.

Hi!

 

Thanks for the review! I want to have the my wedding at a ballroom, but with an ocean view. Did you have a view of the ocean from the ballroom you were at? Was the room small enough for your group of 33 or did you feel it was bigger than what you needed?

 

Thanks,

 

Liz

Hi Honey! Your review is awesome! I read it a while ago but never posted on it, but just came on it hunt for it, because I remember you had one of the bands playing after your ceremony.....do you think it was work the money? Did they play during the ceremony for you or just at the end? Also, stupid question I know, but did you have the trio or the mexican band? Me really wants what you had!!

 

I've just found out my wedding co-ordinator will be Lily too...so happy with your review about Lily - the contact I've had with her has been amazing so far..hope it continues! :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
