    Hi gals!  We just got back from our wedding and it was perfect!  Our guests had so much fun and Nick and I wouldn't have changed a single thing!  I posted a review here: http://www.bestdesti...11#post_1651911

     

    Sorry so lengthy!!

      Hey kimmysue,

      my wedding is also in November, but Ana sent me the planning form as soon as we put our deposit down. We are also doing exactly what you are doing - cocktail hour, dinner, and then dancing at the club.

       

      Thanks for the info on the napkin sale, I've had my eye on a few sites waiting for a deal!

We're not having a traditional reception....just the cocktail hour (2 hours actually) and then a plated dinner. Dancing at the dance club after, so we'll have our two signature cocktails at the cocktail hour. I'm planning on making cute menus for the cocktails and framing them. Ordered our personalized cocktail napkins yesterday.....the knot is having a big sale through today on them!

        Is Castaways the same as Carnival Terrace and Festival Terrace? There are SO many names for the same place!

            After consideration of many resorts in the Riviera Maya area, I have put a reservation on May 7, 2011 at Now Jade Riviera Cancun. It does get excellent reviews on tripadvisor, expedia, etc. There have been some minor complaints, such as waiting long at restaurants, some say weak drinks, some say not enough nightlife. But, hey, every place is going to have some complaints. The main reason I chose it was because it is a good value for the guests, the place has a modern decor and appears to have been recently updated, and the venues for the wedding ceremony and reception look great. I have been working with Jill from Sand and Sun Vacations, whom I found here, and she has been great. I can't wait to hear what you guys think after your site visits. I think we'll be making one in August.

            -Michelle

              melissa - castaways is different from the terraces.  carnival terrace is the same as festival terrace - castways is the restaurant BEHIND the buffet, facing the pool :)

                Yes, I received that form, but don't remember it asking about signature drinks. I suppose I should pull that out and look at it! What day are you getting married? We're November 4 @ 4pm.

                    Yay! We've got a group of 50 coming so far, and we haven't sent our invites yet! My FI and I will be at the resort through that Thursday. I think I'm bringing white chair bows, if you want them when I'm done. I'd prefer the solid white chairs, but I don't really want to pay $7/chair. I'm too cheap. :)

                      Signature drinks are free as long as they include the liquor they already have at the resort.
