Missy thanks again so much. You've really helped me out! Did you honeymoon at the hotel as well? I've read a lot on trip advisor and a recent reviewer said she felt bad for honeymooners because there are so many children around, it's hard to relax. I chose this hotel because we do want kids at the wedding, but when everyone leaves I also want us to be able to relax and enjoy ourselves.

So I just went through my list of people and decided where I wanted each person seated. I had them set the maracas up at at a table when the guests first got to the reception and so they just found the maraca with their name on it and went to the table that matched their number. I didn't have people seated in certain seats...just specific tables. I aslo brough picture frames with the table numbers on them. Your wedding coordinator should email you a chart of the layout. I printed it out and wrote in the middle of each table how many people would be at that table and what table number it would be. I chose to sit a long table with our bridal party so I wrote down each persons name on that table and had them place there maraca at the table already.
My hair was done by my mother-in-law but my mother and sister had their hair done at the spa and hated it. They both took their hair down and had my cousin re-do it before the wedding. I got my makeup done at the spa and have no complaints. I think it turned out very nice. I believe the girl that did my makeup's name was either Victoria or Veronica...on the downside, she also did my mother's makeup and she felt that she used to much base so she wiped some off.
I wish I could offer more insight to the food but I had one plate and then it rained and they told us they couldn't bring all the food up to the ballroom. So they bought the cake, the deserts and some food to snack on. We chose the Carribean Buffet and from what I did have it was very good. The ribs were delicious and I don't even like ribs. We did the tres leches cake and that was very good also.
