    We did bring down our own docking station.  We bought the portable Bose (the one that runs on battery...we bought the package from Amazon that includes an extra battery and a carrying case for about $450 USD.  We figured we'd buy the system rather than paying the rental fee!  And it wasn't a pain to carry; it fit inside our carryon no problem).  The sound was fantastic for the music!  The microphone we tried to use (an iphone app) didn't work all that well; people could hear our ceremony, but not all that well.

      I'm having issues this morning.  :)  Please see my reply above.

          We are not geting Married until Nov 16 2013, so i cant help with the exact food . However with my experience last few times we have been to Mexico in general I tend to choose chicken. From ALberta so mexico beef is not to our tastes lol.!! and seafod allergies so we choose chicken breast provence style/veggies and potatoes for main. Not super original but i didnt want to choose something different and be disapointed!

            Hi Michelle,

             

            I had a lot of trouble choosing food too, since we weren't able to taste anything!  I had Fatima choose for us, with my requests being "guests favorites" and "local flavor".  We had the Ultimate Package, so we chose from the Gold Menu.

             

            Our appetizers were: ceviche in chalup, guacamole and salsa, Acapulco shrimp ceviche on tartlets, mini tamales, mini tacos, and chile poppers.

             

            We did the Mexicano Poblano pepper with tuna for the salad (I don't think this was a guest favorite) and the Poblana Soup (awesome!)  

             

            Our main courses were the steak and chicken combo and the fish filet Provence.

             

            I didn't eat that much during our reception, so I can't give too much of a personal review of the food, but I did have a little of the appetizers and soup, which were both very good!  We received good feedback from our guests about the food in general...I heard specifics about the appetizers, soup, and the fish.

             

            A quick note about the cake: it was not plated and served, and our guests didn't even know it was there.  I'm sure almost all of it was thrown away, which makes me sad (especially considering we paid extra for cake for our extra guests!)  We did have the Mexican flan dessert also, so our guests had something sweet, just not cake.

                      -few questions starting to get panicky lol.!!!

                      Anyone doing IPod for music?did you do full playlist or just random songs you enjoyed? Im so lost on this!! 

                      We are having very small ceremony reception with only about 24 people so not doing a dance floor or anything just wanted some music with dinner and afterward? 

                      -As well what are you bringing for decorations?? I cant justify some of the crazy costs of the decorations but not sure what i should or want to bring. we are doing family style dinner on beach so dont need much but worried i wont have enough?? we rented lights and candles but was thinking our boquets will work for centerpeices?

                      -oot bags-- im doing travel mugs and a few things havent finalized, however did you bring another suitcase for this stuff?

                       

                      Thanks!!! :)
