Anyone have experience decorating the tequila terrace with Christmas lights and/or hanging lanterns (lanterns that don't light up)? Juan Carlos quoted me $400 to do the Christmas lights - says we need to rent 3 poles at $100/each and then a $100 labor fee. I'm not sure it's worth that much to us.
For those of you who are planning evening receptions at the tequila terrace, how do you plan to decorate? Does anyone know what kind of lighting is already there?
For our wedding, they provided spot lights on the Tequila Terrace and we had lighting for the music even though we brought our friend as a DJ. There was enough light to really see and not to much that we were spot lighted. I don't think you really need more lighting as you have the glow from restaurants and the ones they provide for you.
Hey brides! I was wondering if you paid for the wedding in cash or if they can take your credit card at the resort? Kinda worried about carrying that much cash around with me in Mexico...advise?
And what did you and your guests do for money? Exchange at the airport? Just use US dollars the whole trip? Use ATM at resort? How much cash should we have on hand? I know these sound like odd questions but it will be our first time to another country besides Canada Thanks!
We used a credit card and I think they kind of prefer that. I wouldn't travel with that much money for sure.
For money at the resort you only need tip money and that is at your preference. I would suggest telling guests to bring small bills if you want to tip as they never have money to give you small bills back. We didn't get any pesos and that was fine even going to the same shopping area we used American dollars. I do had some friends that got pesos and they said that was fine for tipping and buying stuff at the biazrre the have a few nights during the week. We just brought our cash we wanted to spend, but they do have an ATM at the resort. Unless you are planning on shopping a lot or going off site you don't need a lot of money, its an all inclusive. We didn't have more then $2000 total in cash and we had tons of extra.
