jkhowell-  We took all of our guests there were around 35 of us who went a few chose not to go, we paid 100- 105 a person i think... we did our trip to mexico thru classic vacations tho and those guys do the same excursions just use different prices and said they were willing to negotiate a lower price but this was after we had already booked, so you can haggle a bit with them they just want the business, i did research before going down and you can find other companies that are similar we just went with the convenience factor of it all. 

 

Also for those of you contemplating music try out vitamin string quartet.  we used a few of there songs with the sound system it wasn't bad having music just play. if you want to get instruments just make sure they have mic's so that everyone can hear them. and it'd have to be things like guitar violin, cello i can't imagine getting a piano or even carrying a bass down in the sand. 

 

antibiotic we took was ciprofloxacin, there are a few different drugs docs will prescribe. let me know if you have any other questions!

Hey girls,

 

I have a question for those getting married on the beach....which is the best area to get married on the beach? Or Is there only one side we are able to get married on the beach? Is the sound technician what most people are using? and is it extra to have a guitarist?

So, I started printing out all of the emails from Lisbeth and the 3 other coordinators I had over the past 1 1/2 years and there are just SOOO many!  Since there is free internet access in the preferred club and also, the coordinators have internet access, I think I am going to save paper and if there is any discrepancy, open up my email and show them their correspondence.   What do you girls think??

 

We leave next Wednesday and I am trying to get these last minute things together!

Hi there,

 

I would definitely request the North end of the beach (in front of the 1000 block?Oceana side). Its slightly more private.  The other  end you literally have to walk past the swing bar,  and then around the beach playground that they have set up. I don't even know why they have that as an option :-s

Not a long song at all. It is literally like a 1-2 minute walk LoL and you are totally hidden. They line you up on the North walkway of the Oceana/Seaside Grill restaurant.  You take that left which is still totally shielded by the palpalas and then you will take the right (which is when you come into veiw) to start to walk towards the ocean- which is your "aisle".  My husband did the whole Prince Williams thing - so he faced the ocean with his back towards me until I was literally by his side :-) He could hear everyone "Awwwing" and his best man was telling him "She's almost here etc" and he was all smiles and teary when he finally turned and got the "first look" :-)

Thanks Ladies!

Rachel,

 

Thank you for the quick response.  I am trying to view your pictures on facebook but I think your setting is private so I am not able to view it.

By the way, did you pay for your whole party's snorkeling trip? 

 

Thank you

So timeline for the day of, we did a quick rehersal that morning at 9:30.  We did this the day of because the day before when it was supposed to be we took our entire party snorkling in cozumel so we were unavailable. Me and my 3 bridesmaids started getting our hair done at the spa at 1pm, looking back i would have liked to have started earlier around noon just so we had more time to lounge and do pictures I felt just a little rushed because hair and makeup took awhile.  but im also a huge picture fanatic. there ceremony started around 4 and lasted for about 1/2 hour, the second half hour we did family photos.  at 5 the cocktail hour started and then at 6 the reception started.  we worked with the dj the hotel makes you use, i sat down with him ahead of time to work out how we wanted everything to go, we did our introduction song, first dance, then dinner, then the other typically dances, cake cutting party time! reception for us was from 6-10. if you bring pictures down and show the spa im sure they will follow, i didnt have a picture for makeup i just told her i wanted a very natural look, she asked me colors we agreed and she did her thing.  the eyeliner was just extremely heavy. she used the makeup they have. i told her i had some too but she asked that i use what the spa provides so i obliged. i didnt bring a picture of hair down with me but i had an idea of what i wanted and she had books and magazines so i looked through them and picked one out to give her a better idea of what i wanted.  I did do a trial run a few days before the wedding for my hair, just so the day of would run smoothly.  I would recommend doing this just to keep your stress level down.

So excited for you.  I think all the sickness happened in March, from the facebook thread looks like the sickness is not happening anymore.  Just be sure to wash your hands and bring some antiobiotics with you.   Good luck and congratulations.
