    @upstatekj - we actually had 46 not including us and I was surprised it fit surprisingly well. I can post a pic of the actual pier later tonight but they are on my computer at home...Since they can fit 4 people across, two on both sides of the aisle, it only was 12 rows deep. I took these pics of the pics from my computer so the quality may not be that great but you can get the idea of the shots! Let me know if you need anything else :)

        We just got married on January 10th at Excellence Riviera Cancun and it was the best experience ever!

         

        I like many of you was a little hesitant because the email responses seemed to be delayed a bit from Jessica and nothing seemed to be very cohesive as far as price and information. I will say though, about a few weeks out she sent me an email with a pdf of everything. We went back and forth a little bit about things butit was organized. When we got down there, she met with us and we got everything taken care of in about 30 minutes.

         

        We got married on the pier and it was absolutely stunning! It was cool to have a different backdrop than the traditional beach setting. We did our recpetion in the oregano room. We actually loved it! We had 49 people at our wedding and it was the perfect location that felt a little enclosed while still being outside and also felt seculded from the rest of the resort. We loved the beautiful dark beams and architecture of the space.

         

        Here is what we paid for as far as extras: We got the gold package so almost everything was included except what we had to pay for the extra guests...

         

        -We paid the $220 for the lights and paper balls. It really ended up making the room and added a beautiful ambiance.

        -I also upgraded the bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids because I had something specific in mind.

        -I added an extra satin bow on each chair which looking back on now definitely didn't need it.

        -I had to pay for a few extra centerpieces because only 2 were included and we ended up having 6 table including the head table. I wish I would have taken a picture of the ones we selected from the gold package because they were gorgeous. We upgraded the head table ones and if I had seen the ones we used for the other tables I wouldn't have paid the extra money. They were actually prettier that the head table orchids we got.

        -Jessica used a few of the orchid columns from the head table at the ceremony table so we actually didn't get any flowers for the ceremony. It was more than enough to suffice and the backdrop was so pretty.

        -We got rose petals (I believe they were $65) That was so worth it! They made the pictures and added a beautiful pop of color!

        -We paid $400 for the sound system and just made our own play list on an ipod. It worked perfect!

         

        As far as photgraphers, we used the in house photographers Beach Wedding Studio. I absolutely loved Ashley! She was very professional...we met with her ahead of time and went over what we liked and didn't like as far as style. We like more creative photgraphy as compared to staged photos and gave her free reign to do what she wanted with the pictures. We were absolutely thrilled when we got them back! She captured the joy of the day and the photos were stunning. It was really windy the day of the wedding but she worked with the elements to create some gorgeous shots! We were so thankful we had her to capture out special day.

         

        II can try to attach some pictures if anyone wants!

         

        Hopefully this info was helpful...I saw all of the reception options in person so if anyone needs any more specific info or suggestions, I would be happy to help. Everyone at our wedding had an amazing time and I would go back to the resort again!!

        @saramatthews I would love to see the photos!  I am thinking of using them or going with bringing my own from home.  I am getting married at Finest!

              Hi All! Sorry for the delay! I will post as many as I can! @upstatekj we got the gold menu...don't remember the exact number but it had a soup, caesar salad, and then a pistachio crusted fish and seafood stuffed salmon. The food was actually REALLY good. Especially for banquet style food. The service was a little slow during dinner but it was totally fine. We missed the cocktail hour because we were taking pictures but everyone said the cocktails were great too. I would have to look up what we actually ordered. I will also say, the cake was OUTSTANDING! I normally do not like cake at all. I was pleasantly surprised I actually ate it! We got vanilla with raspberry filling. The frosting was a whip cream like frosting, not your traditional buttercream. Here are some pics of the ceremony and reception!
