    Shea was is very interesting here is that I am having my cocktail reception from 4-6pm at Gaviotas on the 19th... What is going on!?!?!? They had also told me that my rain location would be the covered pool area.

    What time are you having your cocktail reception?

    I can't believe we'll be in Mexico in two weeks!!

      so I freaked out and didn't read all the posts.

      The Health Bar is on the way to the casita section, just across from the beach. I don't recall how well it would fit 40 people. Were you planning on having dancing? B/c I don't think it could accommodate dancing too.

      As for someone's recommendation of Tucanes, I hope she doesn't offer you that one b/c that where our private dinner is from 6-10pm.

      This is so stressful! Don't you feel like you have no leverage?? Here in the states you could threaten breach of contract but you can't do that down there and they know it. I'm so afraid that once we get down there they are going to change everything on us and there will be nothing we can do about it...

        We are having the cocktail party from 8-10. And then planning on heading over the Guacamayas.... We are kind of doing things backwards. We are doing the free dinner at El Cocotal, and then the cocktail party.

        We are planning on having music, but it is for only 2 hours. We might dance a little, but not too much.

        Did you like the Health Bar? She mentioned the pool area next to it as well that we could use.

          Phew!!!

          The Health Bar is really similar to Gaviotas, just across the walkway.

          See you at Guacamayas!!

            The coordinator that I've been working with, Monica, highly recommended Gaviotas for me for our private reception. We're also doing the free dinner reception at El Cocotal and then just having drinks and dancing (and probably the cake) at Gaviotas (for 2 hours) after our dinner. I haven't heard of the Health Bar as an option, but from what I heard about Gaviotas, that sounded nice.

              The Health Bar is an exception for me because of the goof up with my original location. She stressed that it was a one time thing.
              The only reason I am considering it over Gaviotas is the pool at the Health Bar. I have already purchased the floating candles for the pool....

                Aaahhh....that makes sense......well hopefully whichever location you choose will turn out to be perfect - it should be! All brides that I've heard from that have gotten married at EDR are always very happy w/ the final results! I can't believe both you and Bre will be getting married there in a few weeks! Good Luck - I just know it will be great!!
