But you really don't have to do this because the resort is so small and everyone was at the Aquanox bar before and after dinner and then the Tequila lounge after the Aquanox closes. A couple of the nights (including the wedding night after the reception) our group were the only ones in the Tequila Lounge and we had the place all to ourselves! It was like a private event for free! It so easy to hang out with your guests because you run into them everywhere you go which is so nice! The resort was fully booked and it didn't seem crowded at all which was great!
How many guests are you having? Also, its so easy to get tables for a big group for dinner at the restaurants...they are so accommodating! The first night they put a table of 20 together for us!
Also, thank you for the comment on my photos! Who is your photographer?
We did a Welcome Dinner on the beach the night before the wedding. It was really nice...They only bad thing was when it got dark...The lights they provided did not light up the area very good. Kind of a bummer! We asked for more lights and it sounded like they were going to get more but they never did. We also did a photo slide show at the Welcome Dinner. This was BBQ buffet dinner which was a private event for 4 hours but I think we only stayed on the beach for about 3 hours since it was so dark and we all went to the Aquanox bar to hang out.
I wore wedges for the ceremony and then changed into heels for the ceremony. I can post pics if you want..just let me know.
I wanted fireworks and fire dancers but they said no and I have not heard anyone that has done this.
YOU will LOVE this resort! It is AMAZING! All our guests are still raving about the resort and say they can't believe we picked such a great resort! When you think of Mexico you think of all those large resorts with 500plus rooms which are great but for a wedding a small boutique resort was the perfect choice! We want to go back for our 1 year anniversary (Even though we always choose adult only resorts when we go to Mexico.)
How many people are you having?
Let me know if you have any other questions!
