Yes it is. They recently changed the name (some of the Miami Coordinators are unaware of this though) It holds up to 400 people.  Hope this helps.

I'm only planning on having between 30-50 guests.  Will it look silly to have such a small reception in such a large area?  The only choices I have left at this point are the Bugumbilla Terrace or the Grand Terrace.  I'm not a big fan of the Bugumbilla Terrace.  It doesn't look very private at all!  My wedding ceremony is good 10 min walk from the Grand Terrace.  Is that too far to expect my guest to walk?

I don't think they would have to walk.  They could use the shuttle transport espeically if you are having older guest.  Thoughts?

I asked my WC about this, since I was concerned about our older guests.  She said that they provide golf carts to get your wedding guests around, and not to worry about anyone having to walk unless they wanted to.

Thanks, that certainly makes me feel better.  I'm not sure who your WC is, but at this point, I sure wish she was mine.  I don't understand why each WC tells us something different.  My WC specifically stated that she thought this was a bad option b/c the resort will not provide transportation.

Sometimes you just have to push them.  They do have to set up a lot of this so it might be easier for them if it's closer.  They are also responsible for guiding guests from the wedding to the reception so the if its closer its easier for them.  In fact, our WC had us tell our guests what time to meet in the lobby so the bus would take everyone from Sunrise to Nizuc and then when the arrived at Nizuc, escorted them all to the chapel.  She also arranged to pick up the groomsmen and groom to take them to the Chapel.  

 

Our WC, first was pushing for our cocktail hour to be in the grass area outside of the chapel.  I did not want a cocktail hour in the grass so I insisted it be somewhere else.  She got the gazebo next to our reception it and was perfect.

 

One thing I did not think of was getting back to our side after the reception.  Our WC actually had golf carts waiting to take our guests back to the Sunrise section since our reception was in Nizuc. I would make sure they can get transportation back.  However, we did only have 2 golf carts and 60 guests wanting to go back so many did end up walking rather than waiting.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
