I'm getting married on the beach terrace April 24,2015. I'm curious if any past brides have pictures of their wedding on the beach terrace? Or even on the tequila terrace if they didn't have a dance floor. I don't want to pay $700 for a dance floor but I'm nervous it might look awkward without a designated dance floor area.

We are wedding buddies! I am getting married April 24, on the Tequila Terrace :).

We are thinking around 4:30 sunset is 7:15 and we wanted the hour before sunset for pictures, and we want to be at our cocktail hour :). Time is going so fast, I'm not ready at all!

I feel the same way! But honestly, I'm not sure that I'll feel ready until like a month or so before the wedding, which I guess is when Ramon sets up a phone call to go over details. So far we have the dresses, DJ, centerpieces and chair sashes and I'm thinking of just going with the resort photographers. I'm beginning to think it's actually more stressful trying to plan a destination wedding as aposed to a wedding around home!

I don't think I will feel ready till it's over!  LOL.  I have my invitations and was putting them together last night.  I'm skipping the DJ but thinking we will do the photobooth :)  I'm also using an outside photographer (Dean Sanderson).  Can you tell photos are really important to me?  :)  You are right, there are just so many details to consider!

Haha I am also thinking of the photo booth! They're always a highlight at weddings. Photos are important to me as well, unfortunately we are trying to keep the budget under 10k which seems impossible to do if we hire an outside photographer :(.

You don't happen to have a budget sheet do you? I think I have almost everything planned for, but I'm nervous I must be forgetting things!

I am getting married in January i do not have my budget sheet yet, but do have a past brides. I am trying to stay within 10k also and getting very tricky! You have to remember tax+ service taxes because I did not have those in my personal budget sheet. Example if you get the divine package for $3299 the tax alone is $527.84! 

 

Do you have a DJ?

Flowers?

Decor? 

I am bringing a photographer it was cheaper to fly her for 3 nights then any photographer down there was, might want to look into that option.

Hi! Congrats on your wedding! It's so soon! Where are you having your reception? Mine is on the beach terrace.

 

Yes staying within a 10k budget is a bit tricky but I'm hoping we can do it.

We're using the resort photographers and DIsco Movil for our DJ.

As for decor, I've purchased lanterns to put along the aisle during the ceremony then bring them on as centerpieces for the reception. Also, I ordered beautiful chair sashes off of etsy and wrapped lace around mason jars as candle holders. I'm also thinking of upgrading to the gold Tiffany chairs. Although it's $10 per chair I think it will add elegance and I won't have to buy as much decor. I still have more items to buy for decor though. I'd love to know what your theme is and the decorations you are bringing down.

I didn't realize the taxes alone are that expensive. I'm also doing the Divine Package. Luckily, we only have about 35 guests attending. Is there anyway you can send me the budget sheet you have? I would just love a bit of an outline as to the extras that I'm sure I'm forgetting about!

Mine is on tequila terrace! I also hired Disco Movil, I will give a review and let you know how there are when I get back.  My theme, is just really elegant and classy. I am using shades of coral and navy, bringing gold into the decor. 35 guest under 10k you can do that! I have about 60 guest and that is where it gets really expensive for every guest for the 25 included in the package. I will send you the budget sheet I have, what is your email?

 

What are you doing for flowers?

That would be great if you could give me a review of the DJ when you get back!

 

Coral, navy and gold sounds so beautiful! Mine is blush, beige and gold. My email is bredagostino@yahoo.com. Thanks so much!

 

For flowers I'm using the resort florist. I feel like it's just easier to stick with them. We're doing Calla Lillie's for the bouquets and I'm also thinking of adding flowers to the arch for the ceremony. What are you doing for flowers/who are you using?
