    I just got back from my wedding at Jellyfish!  It was awsome.  We stayed at Excellence Resort but chose to bring everyone "into town" for the ceremony and dinner.  We had originally planned on having our ceremony at 5pm but due to our photo session it didn't start until 6:30.  My husband and I arrived via taxi at 3:30 then we dressed together in thier office and went with our photographer to a cigar factory nearby for photos and then over to a neon green housing complex for more photos.  We came back to the restaurant and some guests went on the cigar tour while we finished our photos on the beach.  They loved it.  For those who stayed behind Mayte set up an outdoor lounge for them to hang out in and watch us do our beach photos.  The beach is public and was quite busy at the time (5pm)  but by 6:30 it was nearly deserted.  As the beach is public there was quite a bit of garbage down by the water.  Mayte's team did a great job of keeping the upper part of the beach spotless. It's hard to compare the beach to Excellences beach which was immaculate, many miles long and completely private with no other resorts on either side.  The guitar trio played at the ceremony and during the cocktail hour, my father in law who is a pastor preformed the ceremony and as it happened at sunset it was soooo romantic.  The servers came out and served appies and we hung out, lounged, took photos and drank.  We then went upstairs for dinner and speaches.  We had Mayte print up thier regular menu with out prices and let people choose thier own meals.  This seemed to work out so much better than having a set menu.  Some people were more hungry than others, others with allergies, etc.... Mayte came and took everyones orders and she had them all served at the same time and perfectly-she is one awsome lady.  We did the $10/hour drink option.  I think some people ordered other drinks but she only charged us the 10/hour.  We cut cake did more speaches and hung out for a little while longer and then headed back to our resort at 11:30.  Overall it was the best wedding!  I'm just waiting for pictures then I'll post again.

      Hi everyone :)

       

      I have a question for previous brides.. did you get your flowers (bouquet, bridesmaids bouquet, etc) through Mayte.. and whats an estimate on what prices were like?  I emailed Mayte a couple of days ago so we can get our pre-invoice.. I left out some things so we can figure it out when it gets closer.  Thanks :)

        Feel free to PM me...

         

        1) It was a big comfy bus (much like the ones from the airport) for $5/pp...I'm sure at least 60-80 can fit

        2) No a/c...it's an open concept restaurant- please go google the restaurant for pics for a better idea

        3) Tax is charged no matter what and it's best to pay with US cash

        Thanks so much for responding! I'd love to talk to you about your experience more and have some more questions for whoever can maybe answer them.

         

        1.)How did your guests get to the Jellyfish? If you took a bus, What kind of bus was it? How many people fit in it?

        2.) Was the restaurant air conditioned at all downstairs?

        3.) Do they take american cash? and if you pay them cash does anyone know if Mayte wouldn't charge tax?

        4.) anyone married in June? What time do you recommend the ceremony to start?

         

        Thanks!

            It has been 9 days since I heard from her so it's not only you. Maybe she's just real busy? I will post when I hear back from her.

                  yeah Mayte is super busy.  She has had weddings almost everyday since the 15th of Jan.  She will get back to you.  I've posted some pics of our wedding there on Jan. 30th.IMG_6600.JPGIMG_6612.JPGIMG_6577.JPGIMG_6553.JPG

                    Your pics are so pretty!! Congrats!

                     

                    Did Mayte give you options on how you wanted your chairs/sashes to look? Do you know if you have the option of covering the chair with white covers and also the sashes? IF you don't mind me asking how much were your flowers and bridesmaids flowers?

                    Did Mayte have any option of something hard to walk down the aisle on? I see a white sheet there and I am super short and was hopeing I could get away with wear wedges so I'd have some type of heal. I know sand will be real hard to walk on with any type of shoe, what do you think?

                      I just got an email from mayte and she had a baby girl! That is why she hasn't been responding. She will get back to everyone soon :)
