    Hey Everyone!

     

    I'm in the middle of completing that huge checklist...I can't believe I'm 2+ months out, time has gone by soo fast. We're having MUCH fewer guests than we had originally planned (35 max...a few are still deciding, and we're currently at 70 nights, SO frusterating!!!) but due to that our location options are different than I had originally looked at. Does anyone have any suggestions on the Venado Terrace/Gardens versus the Tucan Terrace/Gardens?

     

    We're having our ceremony on the beach and we are having a one hour cocktail hour following the ceremony (so we can take pictures) and then a buffet dinner. The gardens appear to be larger than the terraces, but I think that's just the maximum capacity? I def. want dinner to be as close to the beach as possible (we originally really wanted it ON the beach, but can justify paying the additional set up fee) so I'm thinking of doing the cocktail hour at one of the gardens, and then dinner at the corresponding terrace? Any suggestions on if this would be a good flow? Or which garden/terrace is the best combo? I think I remember reading somewhere that the Tucan and Venado are pretty similar and close to each other....I just hope not too close that if someone else is celebrating the same night there will be too much overflow/competing noise?

     

    Also, how is the lighting at the places? Is additional lighting NEEDED to see and function, or have girls just brought it in for decorations/mood?

     

    Thanks!

    They are pretty much identical in my opinion.  The Verando terrace is closer to the Grand side and the Tuscan terrace is in the Nizuc side- so I would just pick whatever section is closer to where you are your guests are staying IMO.  We had our rehersal dinner at the Verando terrace and thought it was PERFECT- it is right on the beach (it ended up being REALLY windy though) and the grand side is quiet- so we did not have many people at all walking by! I think the "gardens" is just the grassy area next to the terraces but I would just have everything on terraces cause there are bugs that bite you- I'm not sure if they are mosquitos or not.  They are not close enough that one will put a damper on your party or be a distraction.  If you are concerned with lighting def have yours on a terrace as there are lamps around all the terraces.  It wasn't the brightest by any means but it was enough lighting to see what you are doing.  Here are a couple pics from my rehersal dinner if this helps!!

     

    You can see one of the lamps in the background of the 2nd pic!

      Hey fellow MP brides!

       

      I have a few questions for the ladies that have had their wedding ceremony in the Tucan gazebo. We are booking the complimentary deal for a symbolic ceremony, not very many people going 30 TOPS! I initially wanted a beach ceremony, until I saw on a video that everyone is wearing flip flops or barefoot (which is nice if that's your deal), but I want to show off my awesome red heels, without getting sand in them. YUCK! 

       

      Do you know how they decorate the gazebo? Is it the same or simpler? Would they let us use it with such a small crowd? I have my date booked for 7/7/14 and it's too far in advance to ask my wedding coordinator, that's why I have you guys!

       

      Thanks in advance!!!

       

      -Jenny-

        Thanks so much Shan0847!!! My FI is very worried about all the wind that we see in pictures...was it so windy that it's annoying/hard to hear/decorations blow off tables? Will candles stay lit? Maybe the battery operated ones might be better either way. Was it like that every day/all times of day?

         

        THANKS AGAIN!

        You are welcome!  It was windy- but it was the beach so it was expected.  Sometimes there was NO wind.  So it's a cross your fingers for no wind type of thing, lol.  You always had a microphone so it was not hard to hear- ie the minister has one, you have one while you read your vows, the best man/MOH speeches have one- so you are fine!  As long as you have semi heavy decorations you will be fine! I would def recommend battery operated candles though- I wouldn't rely on real candles that close to the beach.

            I currently have Brenda as my wedding coordinator and she has been great with answering any questions I had and providing all the information I need, although it does take her a few days to respond. My wedding is in April so I will let you know how everything goes. But one thing to keep in mind is that you will have a different onsite wedding coordinator.

                Originally I thought I was going to make the unlimited events but I am not sure now . So can anyone recommend a restaurant for the reception that is really good and can be a little more private if needed . 

                 

                Thanks
