Such a great site!! We have the Divine package..I asked the WC if there is more than one dinner option, and she adivsed that all guests have the same choice.  It looks like this may not be the case?    Can anybody confirm whether there is more than one option for the guests?

I am wondering the same thing. It says that guests get the same choice, but they can make exceptions and I have seen many people saying they are offering more than one option. Also, for the ceremony do you have to pay per chair after 25 and how much per chair? I am just doing the standard chairs that come with the package (not tiffany).

From the webinar we were told that people can choose between two different entrees but they must decide before and you need to somehow differentiate who is getting what...which can be done by denoting it on the place cards.

    No, you do not need to pay per chair if you are just using the standard chairs. We had 39 chairs and there were no additional fees.

      Hey ladies!

      I have a few questions as im trying to finish everything up with our wedding date approaching! So first, the reception will be on the terrace, and i like round tables better then the long ones. Isela said i can have round tables on the terrace and well still have room for dancing but max guest per table is 10. My family is 11 people total so i want to keep them all together at one table. I emailed isela to ask if we can stick 11 ppl at one table or if itll be too tight. If too tight then ill end up going with the long tables.

      What type of place cards did everyone use or will use for the long tables?

       

      For welcome bags, past or present brides, was there any problems getting them into mexico? Should i have the bags already put together in my suit case or make them once we get to the resort? I rather have them all done but not sure if we will be asked to open everything and go through them so im really nervous about this. Also, is it best to have them in a carry on, or check the bag? I would hate to have the bag searched and have to take everything apart.

       

      Same question for bridal party gifts, I have jewelry for the girls and flasks for the guys. The jewelry will be neatly wrapped in a cute little box. I would hate to be asked to open everything up! Should i be checking the bag with the jewelry or carrying it on. HELP! We are leaving in 5 weeks exactly!!!!

        I would really appreciate some clarification here. My TA emailed the resort about reserving the buffet for our welcome dinner, but the wedding coordinator emailed back with a price of $22+ per person for one of the gourmet restaurants! :(  The buffet is FREE for a group reservation, yes?

          Great! It doesn't make much sense to spend again when we're spending so much for the wedding the next day! LOL Thanks so much!

          we didn't have anything packed into the welcome bags, we just had everything separate and we put everything together in mexico..i made sure to have all the receipts with me and when they opened up my bag and saw the gifts they tried to charge us money but i showed them all the receipts and they just let it through..i think they were just trying to get money...
