My future mother in law has been asking me what color she needs to wear to the wedding. I had not planned on assigning her anything specific to wear (as long as it does not clash with the wedding colors), but she acts as if it's normal for me to tell her what color to wear and insists that I do. Are you all assigning colors to the moms and if so how are you choosing those colors?

My mom and MIL both asked me what color to wear and what kind of dress. They told me that the moms and dads should coordinate with the rest of the wedding party. Then my mom was asking what color table cloth I'm going to have because she doesn't want to wear the same color :-/ The next question of course was what color is his mom wearing because she doesn't want to wear the same color as her either! So I told his mom pink and mine purple. My colors are pink and purple.

 

His mom also is the one on me about making decisions. She asks me things every weekend. Lot of things I haven't considered yet because they're not that important to me or because it's to early to decide.

 

Best of luck!

  1. @stephygurl Thanks so much for the feedback! I actually think we are going to choose the French menu.I am not sure if I missed it, but where did you have your rehearsal dinner? What location? I am thinking about having one but I am not sure the cost. Is it the same ( $55/PP) as the reception dinner? Thanks!!

@@jj575757 - French menu sounds good!  We had our rehearsal dinner on the Infinity Terrace.  Not my favorite spot.  It's RIGHT by the pool and the showers where people wash off sand after coming up from the beach.  There is basically a big row of chaise lounges and umbrellas there during the day that they clear out for the event at night.  If you HAVE to do your rehearsal dinner there, try to do it NO EARLIER than 7pm...because people were typically still in the pool until it got dark out.  We made the resort take down the pool volleyball net and basketball net so that people wouldn't be hitting us with balls during the dinner!  The spot I'd recommend is probably the Sky Bar South - it's more private.  We weren't able to get that spot because there was another event going on that night...and we didn't want the Palenque Terrace since we wanted that to be special for our wedding reception.

 

Overall the rehearsal dinner on the Infinity Terrace worked out great - it just could have been a bit more private.  No real complaints though - it still ended up being a lovely event with a beautiful view!  It could be cool to do an event on the beach, too, but I think they charge more per person to bring the food out there.

 

Our cost was $55/person!

thank you @@stephygirl. Did you have a vendor setup tables or did beach palace do that for you?? If so, can you please send me some pictures! I am so torn. I really want to have a dinner to thank our guest but If I go with latinasia for setup its going to cost around another $1k.

@@jj575757 - For the rehearsal dinner, BP set up the tables with white tablecloths.  If I recall correctly our WC (Zaray) gave us the option of different table napkin colors, but we just went with the standard white.  I'm sorry to say we don't have any pictures of the tables from the rehearsal dinner.

 

For our wedding reception, we ordered the "Metallic Sands" decoration package.  BP set everything up on our behalf and we did NOTHING other than drop off our favors (we had multiple favors) and guest book with the WC.  We also emailed our WC telling her how and where we wanted everything set up.  She did it all perfectly.  See some pictures below! I have a lot more pictures but am having a hard time figuring out which ones to post!  

 

This is also the first time I've ever posted pictures so I hope it works - but here was our reception!

@@stephygirl thank you so much! I think I am just going to stick with Having BP setup the dinner! And I might just have Latinasia setup lighting. Did you by any chance have music playing in the background? Did you just use an ipod player?

@@jj575757 - We used the ipod set up with JSAV.  You might be able to see the table they set up for that in the first picture in my album - they have 2 JSAV technicians there to help you in case anything goes wrong.  I basically just gave them my iPhone and they played my dinner & then dancing playlists. I also made sure to 1. change my phone to airplane mode so I wasn't getting text/call notifications during the reception, and 2. to change my iPhone settings so that my iTunes would play all songs at the same volume.

 

I loved having the freedom to play our playlists; we had full control if we wanted to skip a song and whatnot.  For example, we put a very specific song on the playlist for the groom to dance with his sister to, but when it came on she was putting her youngins to bed.  So, I just went up to my iphone, skipped that song, and then we put it back on again later once she was back at the reception!

Do any of you ladies have wedding guests not staying at the resort? Some of my fiance's family members are considering staying somewhere else that is less expensive, and I was wondering how the day pass works. Do they pay for that when they arrive at the resort or is that something that will be billed to our final bill?

Im not sure. But my dad was going to do this but he found out it cost $120 for the pass and it only allows them to come to the wedding and that is all. And there is a time frame for them to stay so they cant come to the rehearsal dinner or anything. Its really not worth it in my opinion because they wont get to spend as much time with everyone else
