Congrats to you both!!!!

 

Thanks for the review Sara!  It seems all the things you were most worried about are the same things I'm the most worried about!  I'm about 6 weeks away and starting to get nervous, but your review (and photos) has calmed me down a bit.

 

Questions for you both:  did you set up a table for your photographer and DJ?  I'm not sure how that tends to work.  And how did you get your OOT bags to your guests?  Ana told me there's a $2 charge per bag to deliver!  That seems absurd.

We brought our photographer from home and just sat her at one of the tables like a normal guest. As far as the DJ we didn't do anything special for him. He was in his booth all night. For the OOT Bags we ending up hand delivering some because we knew when some of our guest were arriving so we just went to the lobby and greeted them with their bag. The other ones Pilar delivered to everyone's rooms (with no charge).

Ditto- our photog was a friend from home and we sat her as a guest, DJ stayed at his booth all night, and we ended up hand-delivering most of the OOT bags (we actually werent done filling them when a lot of guests got there so we ended up just bringing them later that night...woops :))

They were similar but not the same. Yours looked beautiful on you as well! Your wedding looked amazing. We must have just missed seeing yours, We saw about 3 other weddings when we were there.

Hi everyone! Just curious on everyone's opinion for reception location...There's only going to be 28 of us and at first i booked the festival terrace but then changed to the bamboo room, now i'm thinking the bamboo room might feel empty seeing there will only be 28 of us. So anyone who has been married or seen these locations in person i'd love to hear your opinion on this.

Hi Irishdonna-

I stayed at the resort during my site visit in mexico, and the bamboo room is a good size for a larger party.  The festival terrace is a lot more intimate for your group size. I think the terrace is a beautiful location. The beach is right behind you, but it is covered so even it (God forbid) it rains, you are still covered.  Hope this helped :'|  Good Luck!

I had just the same amount of people for my wedding and we used the bamboo room.  Trust me it was a great size but when you are dancing and everything it works out perfectly.  Plus the way the way they decorate it, it doesn't look like wasted space.  Just a thought too!
