We want someplace that feels intimate so everyone feels comfortable and dances all night long! ALL suggestions are much appreciated! Hi! I am also getting married there this summer and can not decide where to have the reception at. What did you think?
  2. Are you getting married at the Half Moon?
  3. One more thing...we booked this fall for summer 2010 thinking most weekends would be open and the whole month was booked. We only got a Saturday because someone cancelled. Point being, have a few dates in mind that you can use as a backup. Saturdays are always busy, but the other 6 days of the week are usually flexible.
  4. I was torn between the Royal and Secrets Maroma. 1. I chose Secrets Maroma because I thought the hotel looked nicer and the Royal always looked so crowded. 2. I thought Secrets looked modern and it's only a year old. 3. I would def get in touch with Wedding Destinations and Planning | Destination Weddings .com though because they saved us so much time and work. Our planner has relationships with the hotel wedding planners which makes communication faster. The wedding planners in Mexico get so bogged down with all of the bride emails, but the destinationwedding people can pick up the phone and call them if need be.
  5. Thanks New York! It is so hard to decide where to have a reception when you haven't been there to see it. We are going to have a beach bonfire for the rehearsal dinner on Friday night...and as much as I would like to have a beach/pool reception I am worried about the heat, the bugs and the wind since July is hot, hot, hot. Maybe Cecelia will let us spend a night there before we have to make all of the final decisions to check out what it's like in the evenings. We are having the ceremony down the road in an air conditioned beach front chapel at the marina, so I don't know if we should do something on the beach since we are dragging all of our loved ones all of the way to Mexico for a destination wedding. I did really like the pics of the foyer to the ballroom you posted! Where is the terrace you mentioned?
  6. Hey gals, Does anyone have any pictures of the ballroom?

I see the fans in the pics of the seafood restaurant but don't see any walls....how does it stay cool? (Unless the walls are glass and I can't see them.??)
  8. I know I want my reception indoors because it will be hot in July, but I don't know which restaurant. I didn't like the pics of the ballroom but maybe it looks better in person I see a lot of the girls used the World Cafe and it looks beautiful. We are having 50+ people so I guess we will need the whole restaurant if we use that one...is the rest as pretty as the red room? What would be the 2nd best indoor spot?

How much do sites cost and how do you pay for them? (monthly, annually, etc..) I am such a moron when it comes to computer technology!! I used Wedding Planning Guide and Free Wedding Websites - mywedding.com and I really love it! I opened another one first and after about a month it said I had to pay to keep all of the things I had on there. The site mywedding.com is free, offers a lot of pretty choices, and I too am not very computer literate and found it to be very easy to figure out.

I will post pics as soon as I get back...or at least when i'm back down to earth ;D yay!!! Did you have to pay the resort anything extra, fees etc, for Cecelia to do your wedding pictures? I wasn't sure what their policy is for outside vendors.
  13. It's so helpful to have people on here to chat with! Semistar, I hate you had so many bad eperiences because you looked so beautiful on your wedding day and everything like the tables, etc looked great too! Did anyone do group bookings? We aren't sure if that's something we want to do or not. Also, does anyone know if they have ivory table cloths for the reception tables?
