Astef- We planned on meeting Mayte on the Wed. we arrived, but by the time we settled in, we were tired and it was getting late.. so we met with her on the Thurs (she was busy planning a wedding that afternoon, but you have her attention) plus it was raining/thunder.. welcome dinner was on the Friday, wedding was on the Saturday. Don't stress/overwhelm yourself because honestly its almost 3 months later I'm wanting to go on an actual honeymoon because I feel like my husband and I werent able to relax/were always with people.
Lona- not worth it to rent out the restaurant, Mayte will even tell you that..unless you were to have a huge wedding or if you have issues with people eating dinner upstairs (they go by a different entrance).
Sunny- I'm sure you can and there would be an additional cost, just ask Mayte.
Sooooooooo.. I can't sleep, here are some pictures (still waiting on professional pictures):
MOH holding bouquet
sweetheart table.. I made the bride/groom signs, Mayte did everything else.
Guest table- Mayte did the napkin set up in our colors, menu, name cards
Guest table.. and you can see our welcome cocktail- Sex on the beach I believe in our colors.
By the way if you find me on facebook, please shoot me a message just saying who you are rather than just adding me.. cause I don't add people I don't know.
