      NewBride2013, I agree with Savs1027 regards google searching.... there is also a previous DRC bride who has a youtube channel with videos of alot of the sites down there.  Here is the link to one of her videos http://www.youtube.c...&feature=relmfu but she has a bunch more.  Yamina told me the pool deck is better suited for larger parties but I have seen neither location myself.  Good luck!

        I wanted to bring rose petals to bring to have down the aisle but Lorena told me that they have to be "natural". I'm not sure if she meant real rose petals or if there are some fake ones that are natural. Do y'all know if there are natural opens? I know they are an eco friendly hotel so not just any fake pets will do. 

         

        Thanks!

            Savs1027... check out http://www.save-on-crafts.com/ if you havent already.  They have alot of flowers petals and pretty much everything else you could think of.  It was my understanding that you couldnt bring real flowers, branches, etc... into Mexico from out of the country due to customs, but I could be wrong.

              She meant you can only use real flower if your ceremony is in the beach.

Don't stress about anything, seriously. When you have your meeting with your coordinator, ours was Gina, she will go over everything and change whatever she needs to make things perfect! We also met with Linda the officiant to go over what all we wanted her to say and she gave us choices of different openings, vows, and closings. So request to meet with your officiant, I also recommend Linda because she spoke great English and you could understand her!

                  Check in was a breeze, Ryan's brother had a small issue but we sorted that out quickly. The rooms are amazing! our view of the ocean was awesome, i definitely recommend getting the preferred rooms, way better views, and the preferred bar makes better drinks and has better liquor!!! lol 

                  Ladies do the trash the dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those pics are the best by far!!! I actually came up with the idea of doing it at sunrise, cuz the sun rises over the ocean! We had to get up super early but my pictures are Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to keep all of them. We did the 1,499 package so we got to choose 236 combined with our 36 from the Love package! i had a lace dress i was a lil worried about it getting ruined, but its in perfect condition, i just wore it in the shower and got all the sand off. The shower head detach so that was a huge help. Seriously if you take away one thing from this post please do the trash the dress!!!!!!! save save save if you have to lol ill answer any questions you have!

                   

                  Lets see....i requested to have a quick rehearsal the day before the wedding it was about 20 minutes if that. We met Gina in her office and walked to the ceremony site at North beach. Definitely ask for a rehearsal especially if you have a bridal party so everyone knows what they are doing!!!! Also a must if your having ur ceremony on the beach choose NORTH BEACH! its more private and a way better location! south beach is literally next to the volleyball court, the the beach bar and everyone hangs out over there, especially the loud and obnoxious people, ill get into them later!!! Seriously tho brides if you know you have a rowdy group that's fine and all, but please try to control them during other peoples weddings!!! its just rude!! i saw at least 4 different groups of people that were clearly wedding groups being ridiculous when other people were getting married i wanted to ask when there weddings were so i could be loud and act like an ass whole, when they were getting married. Sorry for going off there lol most people are really respectful, i just expected more from other brides! So please ladies try and ask your groups to be respectful when others are having there weddings! We did our reception at the pool deck, i love it the food was awesome and it was really private! One thing i was so confused about it the food lol you can only pic one entree for everyone to have, they will make exceptions tho, we had one vegetarian and i chose a different menu for her just ask your planner. Our cocktail hour was at North jacuzzi, again more private than south jacuzzi.

                   

                   

                  I don't have my slide show yet so here's the link to my facebook page, my trash the dress and wedding pics i made view able by the public. So hopefully you guys can look at them. so there should be 2 albums!

                  http://www.facebook....ms/?id=32818052

                   

                   

                   

                  I think that's all I'm sure ill think of other stuff to say if you have questions let me know!

                  Wanna hear something funny. The last photo of your trash the dress session....see the person on the balcony of the room? Yep - that is me! :) I watched the last bit of your shoot from my room that morning! So much fun. THey look great!

                    I believe you will have to buy real rose petals from the resort since you aren't allowed to bring anything live into the country.
