    Hi! Our wedding is May 20, 2010 (Three weeks from tomorrow!!!!!!!) I'm excited, can you tell? My one concern is that we don't know what to do about music on the beach. We're not having a private reception but I want a first dance and father-daughter dance. EDR says we can do that in the gazebo directly after the wedding. But I'm concerned that having an Ipod at a wedding may be kind of tacky. Has anyone used the Ipod for the wedding? What did you think?

      Hey Jodi20! We are using an IPOD for our ceremony and just having the onsite wedding coordinator control the music. THey have an IPOD doc and speaker system so I dont think its tacky at all! Dont forget, the fact that you are doing a destination wedding means that you are untraditional so anything goes!! :)

        A la playa - I love your colors! I like that they are vivid and unique. My colors are yellow, turquoise and purple. I've chosen the decs for the gazebo and the reception. Let me know if you want me to share those.

        I love the boat ride idea. If you can find something a bit nicer than a catamaran that would be perfect.

        By the way ladies, just heard from Valeria that the hotel WILL honor the new, lower prices. This saves a lot of money!

          Jasmin- That's awesome about the lower prices!! Your colors sound gorgeous together! I don't know if I've ever seen all three of those colors together, but now that I imagine them, they seem fabulous! I'd love to hear about your decorations. Did you select them yourself, or did you pick from selections that they provided?

          I really wanted to do the sunset cruise, but I couldn't find a yacht that would hold more than 16 people (that wasn't cruise ship size), and since we have 22, I just couldn't make it work. Lol. I spent an entire Saturday afternoon researching the heck out of it.... It's too bad, because it could have been a really cool and unique thing to experience with our guests. If anyone knows of something I am missing, I am all ears~ :)

            A la playa--it sounds like you have a plan!!! Those colors seem perfect! I agree if you could find a nicer yacht type of boat that would be classy and unique. I'll let you know if I see anything :)

            Baglover--YAY!!! I'm so glad you got the lower prices too!!! I can't believe I happened to go on the site that day to check the menu again and there it was in black and white $26 pp! Your colors are very cool and perfect for the location!

            I'm doing orange, hot pink, and teal! I purchased some decorations and plan on shipping them down to my WC in June. I also had my WC go out to the local market to look for my authentic mexican centerpieces...which I'm so thankful she did! I also bought some of that papel picado (if you google it you can find it) and I had it personalized with our date and names as well as in my colors. I also have a banner with our monogram on it that someone hand painted for us that I'm going to tie onto tiki torches and place in the sand during the reception.

              Is anyone having a private event at the Health Bar? I am having our cocktail party there at 5:30 after our ceremony. I wanted it at Tucanes but couldn't because they only have events there from 6 pm on. I really could use some help on how to decorate this large space. If anyone knows what it looks like or has or will have their event there please help!
              Thank you!!

                Laur13 - my colors are orange and teal so I will have tons of extra decorations and such when I return. Let me know if you need anything. I have lanterns and other decorations.

                  A la Playa - we are doing the sunset cruise through cancun catamarans. They are very reasonably priced and are super nice and have accomodated all of our needs. I think they have a boat that fits up to 25 people. The owners name is Allen Mason. His email is allen_mason@hotmail.com. Hope it works out!

                    Thanks for the info, Dimplz! I'm definitely going to look into that. I think I remember you saying a while back how well-priced they were. They were so much better than what we were quoted through Lomas.

                    Are you all actually cruising on a catamaran or a yacht? My concern with a catamaran was that my guests would have to remain seated for most of the cruise, and I was picturing a cruise where they could get up and mingle with each other. (and us!) :)

                    Lauren, we are having the White Glove Cocktail Party at the Health Bar. I wish that I could help you with decoration suggestions, but honestly I am only going by what is recommended. We were told that this place was close to the chapel, so it would be a good location for our cocktail after the ceremony. If I get any pics (I've requested those from my TA), I'll pass them along.

                    I think it's awesome how much detail you ladies have already put into your decorations and planning! Your days are going to turn out beautifully!

                      Dimplz, you only have eight days!! WooHoo! When do you leave? Are you in panic mode yet? I only ask b/c I know I would have a to-do list longer than I am.... Lol
