@@Gabyc22 thanks! I think i will end up doing more lights.

 

Does anyone know if the long sparklers are allowed/or have used them ? Most other resorts they are. I would love to have sparklers for a first dance!

I had sparklers after our reception was over.  My mom brought them last minute, so I did not ask Ramon if we were allowed them or not.  We used them on the tequila terrace after the bartenders had packed up (but we were still dancing as I had brought my own portable speakers).  Ended up with some interesting photos that I added to the photobook I made using shutterfly.

@@DinaQtobe thanks! that's what i read most brides do at other resorts and usually the resort doesn't say much.

 

Do any previous brides have a picture or know what the basic beach setup and tequila terrace is for the Eternal package? I asked juan but haven't received a response. I'm just wondering how many abd what kind of decorations to bring.

 

Thanks, and sorry about all the questions!

I had the Divine package, but really didn't bring much.  I had a table runner and brought seashells and battery operated tea lights.  I had Ramon put them into wine glasses for me.  I also had little favour boxes with chocolates inside that were placed at each guests seat so they knew where to sit.  I used our bouquets as centrepieces during the dinner and reception.  I brought my own plastic glasses to use as vases for this purpose.  The tequila terrace is really beautiful on it's own and I didn't think it needed much decor.  It helped us save a lot of money too!

@@cayls55 - See my answers to your questions below.

 

Hello brides!

 

I'm getting married there in 4 months on the tequila terrace. Is there sufficient lighting or do you recommend renting other lights than what comes with the package

 

We added some fairy lights & globe lights, but those were for ambiance, not for actual lighting. The lighting seemed fine to me, except when my MOH tried to read her speech haha. 

 

I was also wondering how far in advance you booked the hair appointments and if you had makeup done there and if so if you recommend it?

 

I booked our appointments about 2 months in advance directly with the spa (spa1.nosrc@nowresorts.com). Overall, we were very happy with the results. I posted some photos in my review, which is linked from my signature, as well as comments about our experience at the spa.

 

Lastly, I read that a lot of people bring extra large cups to all inclusive resorts so you get larger quantities than the disposable cups usually given and don't have to return to the bar as often. Did anyone see these?

 

Yes, lots of people bring their own insulated cups/mugs to all inclusive resorts. After going to an AI the first time, we invested in some good ones that we bring every time we go now. Lots of brides will put these in welcome bags, etc. (we did not).

 

Thanks to much!

@@cayls55 I don't know specifics for the Eternity package, but the Divine package is pretty basic unless you add to it. You just get the white linens (napkins, table clothes, chair covers). For the beach ceremony, there is an arch, and for Divine it is draped in white fabric, but I think you may have to pay extra for that for Eternity. Also a white aisle runner was included, but not sure if it is for Eternity. You probably get one centerpiece arrangement (again, we did for Divine - not sure about Eternity), which they moved around from the ceremony to the reception.

Past Brides -- How long did hair and make up take?

 

My ceremony is at 3pm on the Tequila Terrace, and I have hair & make up booked for 10:30am

 

And do you get to have a sneak peak at your ceremony space before hand....I wonder how far it is away from the spa, as I'm really wanting to get a sneak peak in before I walk down the isle.

 

54days till my wedding!! :) :)

@@AmandaU I had our appointments booked for 12 for our 4pm ceremony. I felt a bit rushed when back in the room & getting ready, but we also did a first look and I did photos with my BMs before the ceremony, so that probably all took at least an hour. If you are doing all of your photos after your ceremony, I think you have lots of time. I don't remember specifically how long it took to get hair & makeup done, though.

 

The spa is in the middle of the property, right by the adult pool, and the Tequila Terrace is on the far end, just past the restaurants. You'd have to walk through the resort and either past the main pool or along the beach to get a sneak peak, so I doubt that will work. You may be able to see it right before the ceremony, as you are waiting by the buffet restaurant/Mexican restaurant to walk down the aisle. It was all such a blur, I'm not sure what I could see from there.

@@Johnsonspartyof2 we are making "hangover kits" with some little necessities like Tylenol, pepto bismol, tums, bandaid, Sunscreen, aloe, vitamin c pack, etc, personalized sunglasses (in case guests forget theirs or don't want to worry about losing nice ones) and a personalized insulated cup guests can use when at the beach or pool etc.

I was trying to go more practical so things will actually get used versus spending money on favors that will be thrown away.
