Can someone describe how the processional went and when the music played for each group of people that walked up? I want to have the guys already at the front and not sure if they should walk in to a song with the groom and his parents behind him or if they should just go up there when everyone is being seated. And then I want the girls to walk one by one before i walk down the aisle. But I'm not sure if I should have the same song as the girls or if there will be enough time for 2 songs. Any input would be great on this whole process!

Hi Ivetti I did one bag per couple as I figure men don't do tote bags usually. But pretty much every single traveller I gave a tote bag too, including men in which case I knew they wouldnt use but figured their GFs or mother or any women in their life back home might use. But actually I did see the men use them when they went on a fishing trip to hold their gear in . I got mine from
Alli- did you do beach bags? I was just figuring out how much it would be if I did a "beach" bag per person with the stuff i want to put in it and it would be $40 a bag...YIKES...and not sure the "guys" would use a beach bag, so I was thinking of one bag per room and putting a mix of stuff for the guys/girls and the rooms where there is just one guy, giving them a small travel bag for their shaving stuff? I dunno...this part is stressing me out more than anything!!!!!

ivetti we had 30 guests but denise insisted we have 4 tables and one table for me and my groom in the middle. Honestly it worked out perfectly and comfortably. we seated 8 guests per table including 2 extra photographers. we did do place cards which were not set on each place, instead guests picked them up from a pretty sand box denise set up for guests on their way to reception area. It's up to you but I didn;t want guests walking around table to table looking for their name

Another question- Unity Sand....did you do it? And did the WC provide it or can they get it?

I was just curious how people set up their tables. Did you have the bridesmaids and groomsmen at their own table or did you mix them in with the other guests?

how long of a boat ride is it for the girls in the morning? And how long of a boat ride is it for when the guys come over (before everyone else)? Just wondering because my aunt gets motion sickness and if these rides are faster, I might have her come early with us.

The girls (unless you are on Sunday) go over on the Vallarta Boat with the tourists in the morning. When I did my site visit in October because I was there on vacation it was about 45 min- an hour and was pretty smooth in my opinion, although I"m sure it can vary depending on the condition of the water. Hopefully other brides will chime in!

I brought my own unity sand set. I bought it online and pink and white sand at Michaels stores. When I went to michaels they actually sell unity sets for cheaper than I paid...oh well. The WC was surprised I brought my own, so I assume they might provide it for you...but then you can't take it home.??
My boat ride with BMs was about 40 mins with other tourists @9:00am.
My hubby and GMs left from Boca de Tomalan (fishing town south of puerto Vallarta, 15 min cab ride from dreams PV resort where we stayed). They took a nice speedboat which they said took them less than 20 mins to get to Las Caletas. (My photographer was also with them).
Boat ride for guests out of PV maritime left @ 4:45pm and they said trip was about 45 mins. We bought tons of Dramimine for all guests and no one took them. Everyone said ride was smooth and no sickness.

Hola Ladies!!!! I just got back from my wedding and vacations yesterday!!!! I will be putting a full review on here soon, still getting back to "normal" swing of things at home first. I have to say my wedding was amazing, I married my best friend, which was the most important thing in the world no matter what else happened. With that said, there were a few hiccups, which I will explain in my review. BUT there always will be no matter how hard you plan or where your wedding is. My husband and I would not change our decision to get married at LC and our guests absolutely loved it and are still raving about it!!! I have some pointers and advice for all you future brides that I will get to in good time, don't worry not too long, just need to get settled back in at home. AND I will post pics of everything too because we had the most amazing photographer and I already have my photos!!!!! Cheers ladies and we'll talk soon!!!!!
