    Vav- We did go over to secrets to check it out but we had to be escorted over there. I do know if you stay at Secrets you can eat anywhere at the Now But I think that if you are staying at the Now they may not allow you to go to the Secrets?? Maybe I am wrong but we had to get the concierge to walk us over to get past the security guard but maybe that was because it was at night?? I will ask.

     

    As far as the disco, it is outside. I am not sure what time it opens but I do know you can rent it out before it opens so I am assuming if it opened at 9 or later then it would no longer be private? I am not sure what time it opens? It is a rooftop disco so there is no indoor disco. Half of it is covered but it is still considered outside I think.

     

    I did get a few pics of castaways during the wedding reception but I didn't want to walk in Castaways to get any closeups because the reception was going on. I am sure Claribel has some better close ups of it!

     

    I think Castaways is great for a reception if it had a lot of decorations. This couple in the pics I sent you didn't have any decorations and it was pretty small with no D.J. so that could be why I didn't think it was very impressive but I am considering it for my wedding reception as well.

      I also didn't get any pics of the disco :( What a bad wedding planner! Ha! It had an orange and brown decor. That doesn't sound very pretty but it actually was very trendy and I liked it!

        Attachments_2011_08_11 Lar.zipToday i finally heard back from Claribel, after 7 days and 2 emails. I asked her for some pictures of the basic set up, i will try to post pic, but i dont think i can. I asked, where the dancing can be done, and she said it can be done at the restaurant. im not quite sure how this can be set up if im hiring a dj,do any of u have any idea?the basic set up of the reception looks very plane, they had some flower petals on the table that the bride brough from home. i think this is it for now..

          I cant view the pic you posted. You can email it to me and I will post it for you! sarahgn4t@att.net

          So I am not sure what restaurant you are referring to but if you send me the pic or tell me the restaurant I can try to help you picture the set up of the restaurant and how to rearrange it to make a dance floor.

              Hey girls, thought it'd be interesting to see to all. The video is by the local videographer (I believe it's included in the Divine package) and the ceremony takes place at the fountain site. Very large wedding, but it'll give you an idea how beautiful yours will be

                Katusha, Great find, The fountain does look very private. But with my luck i will fall over this board, hah, kidding. I wonder where was the reception...

                  They had the reception in the theater. There was 120 people at this wedding. We met most of them at the pool! They were a lot of fun!!  After I watched that video I searched for weddings at Now Larimar and you can view a few more on you tube to get more ideas.

                      After being super busy for the last two weeks moving house, I'm glad to be back!!!!!

                       

                      And yup, Skygirl, you can hire whomever you'd like and pay the price to allow the vendor in (which isn't the same price as allowing guests that aren't staying there into the resort) but I'm not sure of the cost off the top of my head. 

                       

                      After seeing the videographer, I may want to do that too. The fountain wedding looks amazing! And I'm beginning to lean toward the idea of that rather than the beach. (Ah, but I really wanted to get married on a beach...just not with over-sized men in speedos.)
