The atmosphere I'm looking for is casual and fun - we really want our guest to meet and mingle so we were thinking instead of a full sit down dinner - just cocktails and heavy appetizers or buffet type dinner.
Never heard of Spiaggia? Ours came to almost $50 pp but the original quote was $29, we just added some things including alcohol. We had about 35 people I believe. Cocktails and apps would totally work rather than a full dinner.

The awesome thing about BT is that food is served family style - they bring platters and everyone digs in. This was invaluable for mingling because everyone was sharing food and food is quite the unifier...lol You could do it quite inexpensively at BT if you just selected a few tapas and drinks rather than a full menu.

Where is BT located?

Also, I'm looking for some authentic Mexican food. I was going to start a new thread but I figured we had enough restaurant threads already cheesy.gif So if anyone knows of a great Mexican food restaurant with a cool authentic atmosphere please let me know! I'm always amazed at how little Mexican food is served in Mexico cheesy.gif (well, at least near the resort areas). We will be staying in the Marina area FYI. TIA

Spiaggia is beautiful. One of my favorite PV restaurants. It is classy and has a great lounge area that can be rented for after hours. It is pricier than the average PV restaurant though. Also, if you are staying at Dreams make sure you make it down to Le Kliff. It has a breaktaking view and the food has been wonderful the two times I have eaten there. The website looks super cheesy but IRL it is actually very nice.

Sorry I'm late....it is located downtown just off of Matamoros, set back in the hilly area. Centrally located though and so worth a visit. The food is phenomonal, truly.
Welcome to BarcelonaTapas.net

Mexican food is tricky....there are a bunch of places I just never tried them. We've had Mexican food at Cafe Bohemio in the romantic zone and No Name Cafe on the Malecon but it has to get better than that. The food was decent but not outstanding.

Try to go to El Repollo Rojo (red cabbage). I never make it there but it gets top reviews for authentic Mexican food. People rave over the Frieda and Diego wedding fiest.

Google it and you'll see the reviews...here's an article:

Probably so, but not all in one place. The restaurant is like 3 stories I think? The level we were on probably sits 60 tops...maybe the other levels are larger, not sure. You could rent out all the levels but then everybody wouldn't be together.

Heather-

Not sure if you are still on this site but I was wondering what you ended up doing for your welcome reception? I am also considering just coctails and heavy appetizers. Did you end up getting any quotes for this?

Thanks,

Meg

I love PiPi's too, and Barracuda is a really nice restaurant right on the beach very authentic too (my dad became friends with the owner since they go there all the time) also Aye Carumba has great food and view!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
