      I watched the video last night too, and I completely agree, it was absolutely breathtaking!!!!  I'm sure that yours will be just as gorgeous, let's face it, Mayte is awesome at what she does.

       

      Congratulations to Jessica, and best wishes Mel!!!

        Thank you ladies! It truly was amazing.. and their house DJ does a great job (I emailed Mayte beforehand with songs I wanted and songs during the ceremony/when to play.. he downloaded everything) as soon as dinner ended.. they literally started the partying and did not stop until 10:30PM or so.  I'll write my review soon, we still have to make the 24 hour drive back to AL from my parents house which we're doing tomorrow.. but just know you'll have an amazing wedding.. Mayte truly cares for her brides and she is so busy it is insane.

          Hi everyone!  This is my first post...yay...pretty excited to be here and planning my wedding.  My boss is on vacation, so I literally spent ALL DAY yesterday reading through this whole forum ...and I just have to say thank you SO much to all of you.  Up until yesterday morning, we were planning to do a resort wedding.  Then I read all your comments and suggestions on Jellyfish (and I read the post by Katya Nova) and completely changed my mind.  We aren't getting married until March 2013, but I'm just so excited I can't help but start planning! I feel like I have learned so much priceless information from you all already -- and it's just the beginning!

           

          Congrats to all the recent and future brides  I'm sure you'll be hearing more from me.  I can already tell that checking this website is going to become as routine as checking FB lol.

                      I was just uploading pics and lost my entire post!  Here goes again!

                      I just got back from my wedding last Monday - it was INCREDIBLE!  I couldn't have imagined it any better!  Mayte does an amazing job and outdoes herself everytime!  We stayed at the majestic Elegance and had a wonderful time - our group of 23 also had an awesome time.  We had the ME arrange a welcome cocktail hour at our own bar and a rehearsal dinner at the italian resteraunt (free of charge).  We saw several other brides get married at the ME and saw how much of a production line it is, there is no privacy from other resort guests.  Even our guests realized by the end of the week how much better it is to go offsite for the wedding.  The jellyfish was the perfect spot, nice and beachy but soo much more private and quant. 

                      We had a set menu, picked out a few appie's and did drinks during dinner and 2 hours of open bar.  For us this worked well, some of our guests didn't drink at all, and some drank a ton, so we thought it offset and made the bar bill easier for us to handle becuase we knew exactly what the final invoice would be.

                      We did the cigar roller and it was awesome - they showed how the cigars are rolled and had different flavors (vanilla ect.), and had  mild or strong.  They also had smaller one's for the ladies' - that was cool.

                      We also did the fire dancer's - AWESOME!  There were 3 of them, they had different things they twirled around, even had a fire breather and a hula hoop lit on fire.  It was really cool, and our guests loved it!

                      Photagrapher - we used Micheal Wieler for the ceremony pics and family pics after the ceremony.  We also did a trash the dress session and he was really cool.  He did an awesome job with the pictures and even lent one of his lenses to one of our guests to use while he was there!  He was very resonably priced and took tons of pictures.  We had a DVD with 700 pictures on it the day after our TTD session so we could have them before we got home!  I thought that was AWESOME!

                      DJ - we used Mayte's house DJ and e-mailed her all the songs we wanted played and when.  Then we e-mailed the cocktail hour and dance lists.  The DJ had it all and did a great job with all of it.  She also provided an MC to announce us as we came in the room and also to move the people around and announce cake cutting and all that jazz.  Mayte is amazing.  She outdid herself and made it more than I could've dreamed.  The decorations were simply beautiful.

                      I also used pastor Rick York to marry us and he was great as well.

                      Thanks to all of you who have helped me plan this wedding through posts on this website!  I couldn't have done it without you.  Please feel free to ask any questions.  I'd love to pass on any info.  I'll upload some pictures below as well.
