I can't wait to hear your review. Can you also by any chance answer another question? Does Mayte take care of the timing for everything? I was wondering who organizes things like... speeches, cake cutting, first dance, etc. Is that something you plan, the DJ, or Mayte?
After we were done taking pics after the ceremony, the MC pulled us aside and asked us what order we wanted everything in and he directed that. He just took notes on his ipad about names and timing and it was great! Super easy! So have an idea of the order you want and then just relay it to him. If it helps, we did our first dance right after we were announced and our cake cutting early in the dinner (our photographer wasn't staying all night and we wanted pics of this. It was also nice because everyone saw it. I always find I miss the cake cutting at most weddings because it's done during the dancing).

We're doing this instead of a rehearsal dinner to just welcome everyone to the hotel. We don't want to pay anything extra for the area, we just want a place where everyone can gather (there are about 45 of us). Any suggestions would be great! I've never been there, so I don't know the layout.
We just stayed at the ME and I'd say the lobby bar (the one at the bottom of the fancy staircase) would be perfect. There would be other people around, but it's quite nice. Most of the other bars aren't open very late so I think that might be your only option...

If any of you ladies that have just had your wedding or is coming up have any good advice, i'm all ears. I still feel like I have a ton to do!! I still need to choose songs, confirm timing, build the OOT bags and resend Pastor York our ceremony.
Any of you do the sand ceremony? did you bring your own set down or does Mayte have?
Don't worry, I felt the same way, but it will be fine! I am going to try to write my review in the next couple of days so hopefully that will help. It'll probably be super long and detailed and might be boring, but I know I always wanted to know the details from other brides I think most people bring the sand ceremony set (we didn't do one) because they want to take it home as a keepsake.
