    You won't regret your choice-the Valentin is amazing!  I'd definitely recommend the Once in a Lifetime package-it was definitely worth the extra money.  The big things that are included in the Once in a Lifetime that aren't in the others are the DVD of the ceremony, couple's dinner on the beach, massages and body wraps (amazing!), and the Mexican trio.  We're so glad we chose this package!

     

    The only thing that they charged extra for at the ceremony was the hupa-it was around $400, which we thought was ridiculous, but paid it anyways.  Aside from our upgrade, this was the only thing we actually paid extra for-everything else was included in the package.  We did bring almost all of the decorations though, chair sashes, ceremony fans, sand ceremony stuff, everything for the reception...it was a lot.

     

    The emerald room is beautiful.  I've never been in a golden suite, but I'm sure it's just as lovely. We like the emerald because it has this view:

     



    I just wanted to thank you for the awesome review Cait.  We are also getting married at the VIM in January, 2011.  I just read your entire review to my fiance and we are even more excited with our choice.  We picked the Unforgetable package but were really debating between that one and the Once in a Lifetime.  We are seriously consdering upgrading to the more expensive one after reading your review.  What are the extras in the emerald rooms?  We are currently booked in a Golden Suite.  Was there an extra charge for the decorations you had at the ceremony on the beach?

     

    Oh and your photos are beautiful and congratulations on your marriage.  I'm so glad that everything turned out perfect for you guys.

      Sorry to keep bugging you but Cait if you get a chance do you have a picture of your flowers?  I would like the exact same bouquet as you but it is a little different than the ones in the photos of flowers that i was sent from the resort.

       

      Thanks again!

        Sure thing!

         

        This is my inspiration picture I sent the Valentin:

        Here is the best picture I could find of my bouquet (with my maid of honor's too):

        The Valentin did a great job-the flowers looked exactly like the pictures I had sent, very simple and elegant.

          Awesome, thank you so much Cait for posting those.  The resort did do a great job and I think I might steal your pic because it is exactly like I was picturing too.  This forum is such a big help, I'm so glad I found it and it's so nice of you to help all of us who are still in the planning stage  :)
