      Hi,

      if you are considering Seaside I would just do the pool deck which has a lot more room for the dance floor, buffet etc. we had a sound system, room to dance, buffet dinner (carribean buffet) and we brought a few decorations- table covers which made a huge difference. The only reason to rent a restaurant is if you want to have the wedding inside.

          Lindsey,

           THanks for posting those videos on youtube. I too had my fiance watched it and it was definitly exciting and got to see a different view of the resort. That was very thoughtful of you.

            I booked in person today since I'm on vacation in Riviera Maya.  They just gave us a copy of our receipt and plugged our date into the computer.  I was told our coordinator will contact us now...so I don't think there is a contract?

              I actually didn't even get a receipt back. Was told since the transaction had cleared my book, the date was confirmed. As long as that's all it takes to book it, ok. Thanks! :)

It took about 5 days to get the confirmation email with the receipt from the date I sent it.

                Chrissy,

                 

                What measurements did you use for the table covers and where did you get them? I also saw you had decorations for the chairs - did you buy those as well or did they provide that for you? Thanks! :)

                  Has anyone started looking into rehearsal dinner or welcome dinner options for the restaurants? Any idea if they charge anything extra to book the entire place or if you can just walk in with your guests the evening of? Do all of them have the same guest capacity or some smaller/bigger than others? Trying to figure out the best and most budget friendly way to do this esp. considering this is an all inclusive resort and doesn't make sense to "pay" for food when the guests essentially are already paying for it. :-/ Thanks!
