Thank you for sharing!!! Looked like a blast, loved your photos. I'm getting married Nov 2014 there. Getting very excited!
Do you have any suggestions or comments. Any thing that we should tell our guest or tips for us while we are there? Or fun things to do. Anything at all would be much appreciated!!!
Hi Jenn... great pics.... how was the cocktail hr with double hor d....u have pics of the terrace area and how yours was set up...Im having a small wedding as well...prob 11 guests.
Thanks ladies! We just got our professional photos back, I am going to post some more for everyone to see!
Things that might help when planning:
Flowers – Beautiful, the FREE bouquet was gorgeous and so was the free boutonniere. (We didn’t pay for extras, just used the complimentary ones and it was more than enough)
Location – Beach Ceremony is on the beach outside of the ROCKSPA. Big crowd watching you along the beach and pool area. Its going to be HOT... There is no shade.. luckily our ceremony was short and many of our guests brought umbrellas to shade themselves.
We did our cocktail hour and reception on the sunset terrace, which was so beautiful.. we watched the sunset over the lagoon. It does get a tad windy so keep that in mind.. we had some centre pcs that kept falling over, Also lighting is minimal but we made do without paying for extra (might be difficult for speech makers we had someone use their cell as a flashlight LOL)
** We ended up not doing the double ordearves and instead did ordearves and dinner because we had already been there for 4 days and had eaten at all of the restaurants and didn’t want it to be repetitive. I am a vegetarian and they always made me special, delicious meals. They even gave me a card so when i went to a restaurant they knew to make me something without meat
OOT BAGS - We made OOT bags filled with crosswords, suduko, cards, eye masks, gum, sanitizer, first aid items (band aids, polysporn, Tylenol, tums) Everyone kept saying how much they loved the OOT bags and most used the first aid items.
Excursions - We did a snorkelling trip and used the resort credits which was fun. Other than that we just went into town on our own. My hubby and I have been to Mexico 3 times previous so we’ve done all of the adventure parks, pyramids, etc. but if you have never been I would suggest XPLOR and COBA (because you can still climb it)
Cyntia is awesome and will accommodate any request she can for you, she and the staff truly go above and beyond to make you feel like royalty.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
