OK girls--- just settling back into real life after a wonderful week in Mexicoooo. :-) I have SO much to share after my trip, and am so behind in this blog i'm going to try to go through and answer some questions that might help put you future EDR brides' minds at ease! :-)

Does anybody have any opinions on this for me? Without having been there I'm not really sure which would be better. I just don't want the evening to feel like I'm forcing anything. Thoughts?
Don't worry about the size.... we had 25, and I couldn't believe how nicely they set up Tucanes for us, we completely took up the whole place. It is a perfect place for a reception, hell, it would be perfect even if it was just a family dinner! The bartenders there rocked my world and were fun and it was private enough that it made you feel like you're in your own world. Health Bar would be pretty, too, just more out in the open, but you'd have a view of the beach which is nice. I don't for a second think you should worry about the size- that was such a big worry of mine, not even worth a second of worrying!! Also, even though it's not supposed to rain there in Feb, it did, so the bride getting married on the beach was goingto have to spend over $2K to get a tent to cover everyone if it rained! Tucanes that isn't a concern. :-)
