  1. I can only tell you what I did to get the Imperial Suite-you had to have a 2 night minimum there, so I had to put a deposit down, meaning I had to pay one full night in advance ($1875). I did have to sign a contract also, which had the room block, estimate on how many guests, etc. This was all 11 months prior to the wedding. I wound up not using the room block because rooms on travelocity were cheaper, so I released the block 2 months prior to wedding. That was the last time I did paperwork with them till we settled the bill the day after the wedding for the food/beverage. Hope this helps some.
  2. You will love having your wedding there, it is so awesome! I used a coordinator named Christina from Sunset Weddings; I used her for cake (from Sweet Dreams, awesome), videography (from helix audio, which was just okay), florist, decorations, dj, classical trio and minister. I did do a lot of leg work myself, but only to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. I still have to do my review, but in the meantime, I will message you with other details!
  3. It was actually quite windy-my maid of honor (my sister) had to hold my veil and thank goodness we had a microphone for the minister, otherwise no one would have been able to hear him. It was also sunny, but not humid, and my guests were happy with the parasols. I would still do it at that site and at that time, everything came out beautifully!
  4. I used Christina from Sunset Weddings and that was their bamboo chuppah-they had a couple others, one was white, another wood. They actually used a florist that was cheaper than the Flower Cart and didn't speak any English-I met them through Beth, the owner of Sunset Weddings, who translated for me. The flowers were beautiful, all of them in bloom. I wanted lavender for some of them, so they spraypainted them for me! Does anyone know how to insert pictures?
  5. Thanks so much everyone! I am working on my review now! Maria Armilee
  6. The wedding went off beautifully at the Imperial Suite and my photographer has some pictures posted on her blog at http://www.michelleturner.com/blog/. I will write a review soon, for those with questions please feel free to message me!

  8. No problem. I am using Christina from Sunset Weddings, will let you all know how it goes!
  9. Just wanted to throw in my two cents-I'm getting married at the Imperial Suite next weekend, and I worked with someone else. I was told to get a room block early as well, but I wound up cancelling it with 60 days notice because all my guests got a cheaper rate on travelocity. No penalties, no charges. Also, I haven't even made a deposit on F&B yet, and all menu selections/beverages are set-I have the feeling they are very laid back in Mexico, so for my own experience, committing to a room block was no big deal!

    Thanks for the reassurance Christa-I also asked to pay in advance, and they said not to worry about it either till I got there. I think I will stick with them, I have too many family members who have already made arrangements!

    That makes me feel a little better-i guess it is hit or miss. The one thing I am worried about is using them for airport shuttle, maybe I will tell my guests not to use them going back to the airport and I will definitely not pay until the end of the night!

    This is terrible-I am going to be using them in less than 2 weeks! Has anyone else had problems with them, and how far did you pay them in advance? I am not paying them until I get there.

I will be really curious to hear how everything goes for you... let's definitely share notes. Kay-How coincidental about your birthday! My planner is Christina from Sunset Weddings, met Beth when fiance and I were in Cabo in Feb. finalizing details. If you have any questions, let me know-I did a tasting at the Fiesta, the food and presentation were awesome!
  14. I am having the exact same setup as Kay is for my wedding on May 12, 2007-puerta vieja for rehearsal dinner on the upper terrace, then wedding at fiesta americana at the Imperial Suite. My planner is with sunset weddings, and they have arranged a fajita buffet for $26 per person, then $19 per person national bar (meaning only mexican liquor, beer, etc).
  15. Has anyone heard of Bamboo Body and Mind for makeup? My WC suggested them, they will come on-site to do hair/makeup.
