    Hi, yes. We paid approximately $150 per piece for the orchids next to the chuppa. The chuppa itself was stunning - HUGE! We didn't pay extra for that. I'll try to upload my bill so you can see what we paid for the individual items. However, I will note that we were not successful negotiating at all. We tried to negotiate price reductions on a number of things and we didn't get anywhere....

      Here are the resort photographer's pictures from our rehearsal dinner - http://adventure-pho...84192&k=d6KmLWt

       

      These pictures are actually way better quality than we saw from some of the other resort photographers. The photographer was Ernesto. If you use them, I'd ask for him.

          Your pictures are beautiful! When do you get your wedding pictures? How long did it take to get these?

            It took a little less than two weeks to get these from the resort photographer. Our other photographer said it would be about 2 weeks to get a slideshow and 4-6 weeks for the full set of pictures.

              Hey Ladies,

               

              I'm getting married June 19, 2014!! 

               

              We are going to use our bridesmaid bouquets for our centerpieces and I'm going to have my MIL make some runners with my teal color to add some fun. We want to keep it simply and use the beach as part of our decorations. 

               

              For the ladies that already go married, how long should one plan for hair and makeup? Just curious as I have some girls getting hair done as well and want to give all of us enough time.

               

              Also does anyone know how old people need to be to enter to disco or other bars? I have a niece and nephew who will be 13 and 16 and we are not extending our reception, but I want to make sure they can come with us to continue the celebration.

               

              To follow up ladies I asked Anel about having two dinner choices and this is Anel emailed me this: 

              YOU NEED TO SELECT ONE MENU; ONE SALAD, ONE SOUP, ONE MAIN COURSE AND ONE DESSERT.   WE CAN GIVE YOU THE OPTION PICK 2 MAIN COURSES, BUT YOU NEED TO GIVE ME THE FINAL COUNT IN ADVANCE, HOW MANY PEOPLE IS GOIG TO EAT OPTION ONE AND OPTION 2?   YOU ALSO NEED TO BRING COLORED PLACE CARDS, IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY THE GUEST WHO ARE GOING TO EAT OPTION ONE AND OPTION 2.   PLEASE SEE AN EXAMPLE BELOW.

               

              Have a great day ladies!

                Hair for me = 1 hour

                Make-up = 30 minutes

                 

                I can't speak to the club in terms of whether the young people would be allowed in. Honestly, the club smelled really moldy and gross, so no one wanted to go in, so we stayed at the lobby bar (which was still really fun - if I remember correctly, there was still live music until about midnight). They definitely didn't give the young people any trouble for being there.

                  That's not too bad,  may have to consider that as an option. Thanks so much!!!!!!

                    It looks like you are on the Tequila Terrace... did you wear heels and if so, were the wood slats THAT big of an issue for you? 

                     

                    Also, can anyone help me visualize where the Beach Terrace and Tequila Terrace are in relation to one another?  Do you know if they give you the option of having ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour on the Beach Terrace then reception on the Tequila Terrace (or vice versa)?
