I'll be paying the extension fee. I had received paperwork early on that stated the fee, so I was planning on paying extra for my three hour reception. I only have five tables, so it's only $250 (it was $50/hour/table when I signed my contract). I would have paid for even longer but outdoor events aren't allowed past 10. Luckily my reception is at 7pm and we'll just have to find a place to drink and hang out if people want to party past 10pm. Unfortunately for early ceremonies, you're pretty much forced to have an early night. Maybe you guys can pick a cool bar to take everyone to or maybe set up a gathering on the beach after the reception if you don't want to pay the extension fees.

I am having my wedding at 3 because that was the latest time they would give me. So if the ceremony is 1 hour, the cocktail 1 hour, and the reception 2 hours, then I'm done at 6... what should I do??? I have seen all the review pictures and it seems people's receptions run later than 2 hours, does everyone pay the extension fees?? THIS SUCKS
Those look great, SummerDawn! I think we will be by a pier as well. Beautiful!

I was a little disappointed that we didnt end up going to a cenote but now that I've seen these pictures I am sooo happy with our decision to stay at the resort. We took photos for hours and it was so much less stress than the wedding photos. Sorry for the bad quality they were saved on my phone and then uploaded here but you get the idea
awesome pics SummerDawn! I want to take some pics on the pier too!
Thanks LadyDi! I will just worry about the whole wristband thing when we get there!
I just have to vent...I talked to my TA over my lunch break because our flight prices came out yesterday and they were higher than expected- stupid gas prices! It is going to be $600 for a roundtrip flight from STL to Cancun. We were hoping for $500, but what can you do?
Anyways- while talking to my TA she informed me that 2 couples cancelled. One my FI knew about, he just failed to tell me (typical men) and the second I was taken aback by. The second is a friend and her now fiance (they just got engaged 3 weeks ago) so I know she cancelled because she will be saving money for her wedding next May, which is totally understandable...but don't cancel yesterday and not as much as send me a text message! I just think that is so rude- if you're going to cancel, then just cancel and tell me- it's fine! Guess she won't be attending our girls night this Saturday, haha. So we are down to 39 people plus me and my fiance- which I think under 40 is a good number- less OOT bags to buy, lol! Sorry, I just needed to vent!
