Usually the receptions are 3 hours in length unless you pay for additional time. If oy just trade your live music it is worth 2 hours DJ time. For us we have extended the reception so we will pay for a bit of time also. If you keep at 3 hours you could use ipod for dinner music and have the DJ do the remaining 2 hours? 

Thanks for the info Chantal! I think we are extending ours an hour as well depending on how many guest we end up having. 3 hours with dinner included isn't nearly long enough! Your wedding is around the corner!!:D

62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

    I'm skipping the sand ceremony.  We really aren't that into it and, like you, I don't want to drag the vase to and from Mexico.  We will have plenty of pictures and I'm using real touch flowers, so that's another keepsake for me from the wedding.  We're doing a speedy ceremony.. well, as speedy as it can be with all the signing you have to do during it. :)

      When I spoke to Pilar today about swapping stuff out, she said that they WILL NOT swap anything out!

        I found a seller on Etsy that made a sand ceremony picture frame which I ended up ordering. I think the idea is a little more fun and unique than the whole jar of sand idea. That being said it will probably be heavier. Good thing we have lots of family and friends bringing extra luggage!

          I know the reception feels far too short! My FI and I extended 2 hours (for a pretty penny I may add) which I think is a really good investment bc I have 86 guests and I dont really want to show up to the "disco" in my wedding dress since I have to wear it for an AHR it will probably be a disaster if I do that LOL.

           

          My wedding is coming up so quick! I can wait..lots of little things still to do. Pilar is much faster in her response now though!

              I used the resorts and she was okay. I did do a trial the day before so she knew what I wanted. I am VERY picky about my hair and makeup so I fixed it a little when I got back to my room but considering that I didn't have to pay for the either the trial and the day of I have no complaints! I brought a lot of my own makeup because I wasn't sure what they would have.

              How did you get the free hair trial? I asked if I could possibly swap our free airport transfer for a hair trial and she said no :(

              Anyone know what I could use in place of the airport transfer? Pilar said I could give it to another family member, but everyone has the transfer included in the price of their trip.

               

              I'm picky about my hair and make up as well! I really need to do a hair trial so it may be worth it to just pay for it. Anyone know how much it is for the hair trial? As for my make up, I'm thinking I'll do my own foundation and stuff, but just have them do my eye make up since I'm terrible at that part!

              thanks!! I am very picky also-mostly about my makeup so I am just worried about how they do it. I want that blended eyeshadow look. Do you know what kind of makeup they use?

              did you end up fixing the hair or the makeup?
