      We made our deposit about 2 months ago and our wedding is in January. You pretty much just tell her along the way all the things that you want, and then from what I know, once you get down there, you go over everything and you dont pay for any of the wedding stuff until you are down there and have everything written out a few days before the wedding.

Lorena is my WC and was great at responding to my emails, however, I haven't heard from her for nearly 2 weeks now after I asked for our contract? Our wedding isn't until March but I'd like to think contracts are confirmed and signed well in advance. I just need to start seeing totals and what kind of damage we've done so that we can start paying this off!

        I would like to use Juan as well and he sent me his packages but Im curious to see the packages Yamina sent you for him. Do you mind sending them to me?  My email is: ahall5665@hotmail.com

         

        Thanks!!

            Does anyone know if it is possible to reserve the seaside grill as a reception location? Thanks

                I see, and here I am getting frustrated for nothing. I just wish she would've explained that. Thank you!

                  We got married a couple weeks ago on May 18th and we had an awesome experience.  We got there on a Wednesday and our wedding was that Friday.  We met with Yamina the day we got there to go through everything again.  We were emailing back and forth a lot a couple weeks before.  I brought my table runners and chair sashes but did everything else through the resort. 

                   

                  We went with DJ Mauricio Neri and he was awesome! He also did our music for the ceremony.  We met with him on Thursday afternoon and we gave him a list of songs for the ceremony and he also took good notes on his computer.  We also have him a list of songs we wanted to play at the reception and then just told him to play similar music when that list ran out. 

                   

                  The two nights before our wedding it rained so at 3 on our wedding day Yamina came in and asked if we wanted to move the reception to the ballroom.  I couldn’t decide because I didn’t want to move it inside but I also didn’t want it to rain.  I told her to go ask Luke (my husband) and that he could make the final decision.  He wanted it outside so we decided to keep it outside.  I am so happy that we did because the weather was perfect.  It was windy but it didn’t rain.  The following 3 nights the weather wasn’t good so we got really lucky!

                  The service at the resort was amazing and we originally booked the honeymoon suite and they upgraded us to the Master suite which was awesome.  Here is my slideshow.

                  Also, if anyone is interested, my husband condensed our wedding video so he could put it on facebook and show it to our friends and family so here is the link to that.

                   

                  The first part of the video is a little cheesy because it is a generic but the rest of it is great.  The first song that they are playing (when everyone is first getting there)we didn’t pick but the rest of the songs  are the songs that we picked during the times that they played them.  The video was just running a little slow on my computer but it might be my internet connection.  The actual video runs smooth.

                    Thank you so much!! The sand ceremony comes with the package.  We never talked about a sand ceremony so I didn't even know we were going to do one til the actual wedding lol. They provided the sand and the container.

                      Hey ladies!  I am trying to compose a list of tours offered in the area to add to my website for guests.  Also, we were considering scheduling a snorkel excursion with guests.  Does anyone have a list of the tours offered?  Also, is there any specific snorkeling excursion that is not too expensive that anyone would recommend?  Thanks in advance for anyone's help!
