Thanks @JenniferH114!  We definitely splurged on the room too.  But the room was one of the reasons why I ended up choosing Excellence.  I want to make it special for everyone and feel like we are taking care of them for sure.  I also want to make sure we are getting our monies worth and not making guests feel obligated to hang out with us.  

 

I haven't heard anything about the liver percussion and fire show, but sounds cool!

We are going with the gold package and also doing a private welcome dinner for our guests, I thought it would be nice to have everyone together and thank them then head over to the disco and have a fun night! 

@JenniferH114 we had inquired about wish lanters and were told no lanters, fireworks or fire shows.  But maybe you can talk to her and see what she says.

We are hiring a saxaphonist for the ceremony but I'm waiting to hear back from resort who was going to contact the musician directly. Next up is picking the dinner menu and starting to buy items for the welcome bags :)

@Crystal17 - The fire show with percussion is listed on their entertainment brochure. I haven't asked her about it yet, but that would seem strange of them to list these options without them being available. I'll ask her about it at some point... it's on my list. :)

I'm not sure what night it is but the resort does a fire show for "free" out in the main outdoor courtyard. Check into that before you pay extra. It was pretty good!

@Crystal17 - You might want to request a full copy from Jessica. That was just part of it.

That is too funny! Yes! I would love to do that! In the mean time feel free to look me up on Facebook. You can find me through Danielle's page.

Hello ladies! ERC was amazing! Exactly as I remembered it from my visit 5 yrs ago!

We are still in Mexico as we are spending an extra week in Playa Del Carmen for out honeymoon. I will be sure to post my review and pics as soon as I can!

@karijean is right! Last week they had 2 fire shows. One on the beach and one in main plaza. We had a DJ and he was amazing. The night went so fast I don't know that I would have wanted to stop the partying for extra entertainment!

Hey ladies, is anyone or has anyone shipped stuff to the resort for your wedding? I'm not sure if I should ship my welcome bag contents ahead of time or bring with me. Not sure if customs will give me a hard time.
Thx!
