I know it says "based on availability" so I was wondering of couples actually got to use that option. I'm hoping to have that option and host a "girls sleepover" that night.

    We used the room for the groom and the resort was pretty packed.  So much so, that they weren't able to upgrade us to a better room so they gave us a dinner on the beach instead.

      1. Does anyone know how much DJ Mania costs? I read that that company is on that list of approved DJ's so there is no $500 fee correct? We aren't having a reception at home so I want it to be a fun time!

       

      2. What is the name of the company of in-house photographer? I think Gloria sent it to me but I can't find it anywhere. I wanted to research them some.

       

      3. I'm also curious about the groom's room night before the wedding, this would be very helpful.

       

      4. Anyone know if you can have a slideshow played at the reception?

       

      TealMarie your day is coming so fast! I'm excited to see how it turns out!

      Thanks everyone!

      1. DJ Mannia was $1200 and worth every penny!

       

      2. The in house photographer is Beach Wedding Studios. http://www.beachweddingstudio.com/  Honestly it doesn;t look like they've updated the site recently, but they were biggest surprise in my trip.   I hired them with absolutely NO regrets!  I was a little nervous after seeing some people's posts about photos they took at rehersal dinners for the couple because they didn't want to have them take wedding photos but they were great.  They take extra special care of you if you're paying for them I guess.  I also got an EDITED beautiful video of my ceremony, complete with shots of the resort as a whole.  It was really spectacular.  If you'd like to see some of my photos I can email some to you.  Oscar and his crew were AMAZING!

       

      3. We utilized the room for the groom and they were accomodating, even though the resport was nearly at capacity.  You'll have to ask Gloria about it when you get there and then ask the front desk the morning before your wedding.  They won't book it in advance.

      4. We didn't have the slide show but TealMarie knows what she is talking about.  :)

        Thanks TealMarie and ampanda! That info helps out a lot! But ughh that's a lot of money just to play a 5 minute video! Bummer! You have helped convince us that we will definitely use DJ Mannia! Did anyone else have a problem with mosquitos?? I am just trying to figure out what all I want in my OOT bags! I think I pretty much have it narrowed down, now it's just time to collect everything! :)

          I had no issues with mosquitos but I did bring spray along, just in case  :)  DJ Mannia will keep your guests so busy, you probably won't have time for a 5 minute video!!  Seriously, they kept everything moving so fast (complete with a Tequila shot conga line organized by our servers) that the reception whizzed by!  Love and enjoy every minute of it!!

            Teal Marie-- do you have a link to your photos yet? I am so torn between the hotel photographer or Juan Navarro?!?!


            Also, what did people select/recommend for the dinner meals for the reception?

             

            Thanks!

              Did you mean me or someone else? We haven't left for MX yet and we're using Victor Herrera photography.

              Ampanda52- you were married in July right? Was your reception in the foyer? You might have already said this. There a just so many posts on here. I'm wondering how hot it was? I remember you talking about a nice breeze on the beach for your reception and cocktail hour. What about the foyer?

                Hi HNeal!

                I did get married in July (late July)but our reception was at Barcelona.  The Foyer is beautiful and when I got there I almost changed my mind mid week until I stood out there for a while.  It is very warm.  I was so scared about having my reception where they have the buffet every day, thinking it would cheapen it.  I was very wrong.  I'm very glad I went with the indoor location with air conditioning.  The beach was nice and breeze but anywhere else was absolutely scorching.  When I was waiting to walk down the aisle, I stared sweating badly.  Fortunately it was only for a sec.

                 

                I hope this helps.  :)

                 

                Mandy
