If you don't mind I have a few questions for you (I'm relatively new to the forum so fogive me if some of the answers can be found elsewhere) :
- The lights you mentioned at the reception, did you bring them or have to pay for them, or were they provided free of charge?
- Is there a particular reason you chose the grill over the beach for the reception? We are not even sure what our options are! We are looking at the Strawberry Passion package also.
- You mentioned dancefloor, did they have an area sectioned off for this?
- Where did you buy the macaras?
- Do you have pictures online that I can see?
Thank you so much and congrats on becoming a Mrs!!
-The lights were an extra charge, $10 per string of lights which was a little expensive I thought but I am glad we did it because it really gave the room a nice feel.
-We chose the grill only because I had seen photos of it a year ago from another wedding and loved it, and I personally never wanted a beach reception (no real reason, just wasn't my thing) but I still wanted it to be an open air room since we were in Mexico.
-For the dance floor, they basically had the center of all of the tables for the dancing area. It was really nice because we had our head table, and then the tables all around the head table, and in the centre was the dance area, so if people wanted to sit and watch the dancing it was right next to their table.
-We bought the maraca's at a store in the resort, actually. They were $3.00 for 2 maraca's and I'm sure we could've found cheaper in Playa del carmen but just didn't have the time. We just bought one for each table, and two for each end of the head table so our bridal party could shake them also if they wanted.
-The only pics I have so far that are up are the ones on the blog on the first page of this review from our photographer, I tried to upload some of my own to facebook and it wouldn't let me! I will try again and I can share that with you when I do if you have facebook.
