@kyoung090

 

did someone at the resort tell you the preferred pool is an option? I was just there in July and the choices were some indoor spaces, a garden off the indoor space, the pool terrace or the tequilla terrace.

Has anyone had their cocktail  hour/ reception at the preferred pool? Getting married in May and would like to know thoughts about it. I believe its something newer that they have offered and so there are not a ton of pictures or info. Thanks!


I would like it please! my email is katiehelenyoung1@hotmail.com

Sent! :)

The Preferred pool would be a super nice location to have a cocktail hour or reception.  It is very private from the rest of the resort and really pretty!  I don't have many pictures of it, but after being there I know it would be great.

Does anyone know if the white aisle runner is included in the free package? And if not, does anyone know the cost?  I don't see it on the al-a-carte menu. Also, does anyone know about sound for the ceremony? I would like to have some sort of music playing either from ipod or something.  Will they do this?

I did all my research on the DJ and went with DJ Movil over DJ Mannia about $200 cheaper. A cost savings of about $400 even with the outside vendor fee of $300.

 

I am using outside florist I never heard from Ramon in regards to not being able to meet at the gate so I am going to do it. I will go off the resort if I have to, the flowers from the resort are EXPENSIVE! I do have a lot of centerpieces and bridesmaids bouquets though. I can let you know how the exchange goes between my florist and us next month. 

Hi!  Agreed; the resort floral prices are out of this world!  Which florist are you using?

@jeffandrobyn yes its actually in the wedding book 2015 I received from Anel, under the reception subtitle. Theres no description under it, that it has a max of 60 people.  I think I have a few pictures  but like i mentioned i think its newer and not too many event photos are available. 


@jeffandrobyn We wanted the tequila terrace but it was booked for that time by the time we finally were able to talk to them about booking it.

@DinaQtobe Do you recall how it looked in the evening out there at the preferred pool? Was there a fair amount of lighting out there or do you think I need to consider figuring out some lighting? We hired a DJ so I'm sure that will help.

I'm not positive so you might want to check to be sure, but I was told by Ramon if I had my reception at the preferred pool I wouldn't be allowed to have a DJ at that location. Maybe just email your wedding coordinator to make sure they will allow that for you.

I can't say that I was ever there in the evening.  I see you are getting married in May.  What time does the sun set?  You might not need as much light as you think (in November the sun set at 4:30 and there was more than enough light provided to us (no cost) on the tequila terrace.
