@ yes I did ask her and she said 200... which doesn't seem possible (not that I need to fit 200 comfortably, but I do need space for 100). I just emailed her again to confirm that that includes space for a dance floor, DJ, all of the tables, etc. It's so pretty that I want it to work out, but I'm terrified of getting there and needing to change everything at the last minute.

@@Danielle1 - The sky bar north has a pool as well, and both are open for the day.  At night, they kind of barricade your side off with tables for the buffet, dj, etc.  However, note that the other side of the sky bar WILL be open to the general public.  Also, there is a women's bathroom on the sky bar south side and a men's bathroom on the sky bar north side.  So, there will likely be people sneaking over from the other side to use the bathroom on your event side.  I know there was a wedding on the Sky Bar the same night as our rehearsal dinner - we all partied on the sky bar afterwards and some of us girls snuck over to the other side to use the bathroom over by the wedding.

 

Also, I'm sure your BP coordinator will tell you that 100 to 110 people is fine.  She will probably tell you that you can fit up to 200.  But keep in mind that is probably the MAXIMUM they can fit up there.  Meaning that is a very tightly packed, bare bones space.  If you're looking for a decent-sized dance floor (one where you don't have to break down tables), buffet tables, cake table, DJ, and tables for all your guests - my guess is it would be a very tight space for your group size.  Sorry to stress you out and make you anxious about this, I just want to make sure you consider your options.

 

I just separately asked my husband "do you think you could fit a 110 person wedding on the sky bar at beach palace" and here was his response:

 

[7/27/2015 2:51 PM] :

not comfortably?

seems a bit much

you could

just packed

 


@ - i think your lanterns will be perfect!  Totally know what you mean about wanting to allocate most of your budget to the wedding; that's exactly how we felt!

@@stephygirl thanks for all of the info! I think I will wait a bit and see what our final numbers are... I think some people who intend to come won't actually come (is it bad that I wouldn't be too disappointed if we had less people? HA!). So far only 75 have actually booked rooms.  The picture on the link you sent me said 180 with a buffet on the Sky Bar South... however we really like to dance, so I want plenty of room for the dance floor!

@@Danielle1 - sounds like a good plan!  Yeah - I know when we first talked about doing it a lot of people said they wouldn't miss it......and then ended up not being able to make it for one reason or another!  75 is a lot though, especially so far in advance!  You should have a great time!!

@@Danielle1 I'm actually planning on having 90-95 people and we are sticking with the sky bar south!! I have seen some pictures online and from my WC where there are 5-6 tables on each side with a light up dance floor in the middle and it doesn't look too cramped! I definitely do think that a party that large may fit better on the Palenque terrace but we love the space of the sky bar more and plan on partying until 12AM which can't happen on the Palenque terrace. I think you will be fine with your numbers!

@@FutureMrsGarcia - so true about the partying all night thing!  Our reception was from 6 to 10pm on the Palenque, and they abruptly turned off our music at 10pm (although thankfully it was the last song anyway).  We made an announcement on the mic that an after party would be held at the Sky Bar and that everyone should change into their bathing suits to swim!  IT. WAS. AWESOME.  Such a fun after party.

@@stephygirl How late does the sky bar stay open? (And its only one side that is open to the public, right? So, if my reception is on the Sky Bar South, we could just go to the sky bar north when my reception ends?)

@@stephygirl Sounds like sooooo much fun! I can't decide if I'm gonna get in the pool at the end. I have a feeling some will try to push me in lol @@Danielle1 it stays open until 2AM I think! (Can't 100% confirm that) We are having our reception until 12AM because we knew people would wanna keep the party going until AT LEAST then (some will likely go even later lol). I think only one side is open to the public so don't see why you couldn't jump over there when your reception is done!

@@Danielle1 - I think they technically serve drinks there from 9am to 1am.  I think the latest our group stayed out was 1am so I didn't noticed them closing anything on us.  Although the servers did leave around midnight so you'd have to go to the bar to get your own drink.  Also one night they were cleaning the pool and kicked us out of the pool around 10pm.  They don't do that if there's a big group there though!  

 

Yes, only one side open to the public - you can definitely go over to the other side any time you want!

 

@@FutureMrsGarcia - Haha sounds like you have a fun crowd going with you!  By 1am my whole group was exhausted!  People will definitely try to get you in the pool.  They tried to get me to come in but I wanted to wear my dress, and not only did I think chlorine might ruin it, but I was also worried about how long it would take to dry (and I was heading back to the states in 2 days).  I just hung out by the edge of the pool - I could have put my swimsuit on but I wanted to wear my dress as long as possible  :).  I still had such a blast there though!  Honestly the pool at the sky bar is so much fun.  Our whole group went and partied there both the rehearsal dinner night and the wedding reception night!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
