  1. Did anyone use the resort's photographer, Juan Navarro, for photos? What was your experience like with him or his team? Is it worth it to upgrade to a bigger package than the one that is included in the ultimate wedding package?
  2. I have a question for those of you that rented the speakers and sound system for your ceremony and/or reception. Who managed/played the music? Does someone at the resort handle playing the music (technician, WC, etc.) or will we need to assign that task to a family member or friend? We are going to use our ipod.

    Hi ladies, How many hours before the ceremony did you OR are you getting your hair done? My ceremony is at 4:30pm. The manager at the salon recommended that I schedule my appointment at 1:30pm because of the humidity in Mexico. She said if I get my hair done too early it will not look good at the ceremony. I am more than likely going to have an updo hairstyle. Thoughts? Experiences? -MaromaBride

  7. Did anyone have a beach ceremony at 11am? I'm getting married in April and would love feedback about having a the ceremony at that time. Pros? Cons? -MB
  8. Hello Ladies! I am getting married at SMB on April 28, 2011! I am very excited and can't wait! I love this forum!!!!
  9. Ok, what I have recently learned from my TA is that the rates the resort offers do not include all government taxes (only hotel taxes). The Mexican govt. tax is an additional $145 pp, payable to the hotel upon check out.

    I'm worried about the rates in April as well.
  11. I will let you know when I find out more. I'm assuming the rate they gave you is for the mi hotelito suite, right?
  12. My TA emailed me today letting me know that he can find better room rates (through his wholesalers) than the rates the resort offers, even with the 20% discount. Therefore my guests WOULD NOT be getting the best rate available if I book a block of rooms at their rate. Hmmm....Something to think about
  13. Gail, Did you have a put a deposit down for the room block? How much? Also did you have to sign a room block contract with the resort? Do you know the name of the new beach restaurant. I haven't seen it listed or advertised on their site, I guess b/c it is new. I wish their sites (El Dorados & Karismas) had more pictures of the resort! -Tila
  14. I'm considering having my wedding ceremony at 11, followed by a lunch reception. I like the idea of taking an excursion later that afternoon (maybe a catermeran cruise). I think I will also have a welcome cocktail reception the day before. With this schedule I'm not sure what to do in the evening since we will have already had a lunch reception. I think I can reserve a table (or tables) at one of the restaurants for dinner. I think I will have a beach wedding. Valeria told me that to have the ceremony on the water gazebo would cost $500 extra. Whoa! I checked out silk flowers at this website, which was posted in another thread: Realistic Silk Wedding Flowers, Natural Touch and Silk Bridal Bouquets Gail, if you don't mind me asking, around how much is air and hotel costing your guests? How many days are most of them staying? Any staying as long as you?
  15. BTW there is an "El Dorado Maroma" thread. http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-maroma-54970/
