I asked Anel a few weeks ago about spa appointments but haven't heard back...My requested appointments for me and my bridesmaids are included in the wedding form but I really hope they can accommodate us at this point since we don't have any other options! here is the direct email for the Spa spa1.nosrc@nowresorts.com. They responded to me super quickly to book/change appts. I would just email them directly and copy Anel so she knows you have it taken care of.
  2. Sorry about blank comment-not as savvy on my iPhone! We wanted to do a TTD but just didn't have enough time w/ guests in town. However, we're going back for our anniversary (probably not staying at NOW but going to Tulum. We've already told Amorcito Corazon studio that we'll be doing a belated TTD then ... With a cheaper fake wedding dress!!

I agree with calling - or email Ramon directly. He seemed a bit more responsive when I did interact with him - weddings1.nosrc@nowresorts.com

I agree - you really want to go offsite - and many of them are the same price or less. Ours ended up being less going offsite. Here are the links to both of my sets of pictures. The onsite folks (Adventure Photography) wasn't awful but there is an artistic quality missing. Also, there was a bride who posted a link to her pictures from them back in May or June and they were shockingly awful. It was actually based on that review that I then choose Amorcito Corazon Studio, which I couldn't recommend more highly. Here are the links: Adventure Photos: Amorcito Corazon Studio (slideshow): http://schroeder.amorcitocorazonstudio.com/ If you want to see the full set of pictures from Amorcito Corazon, message me and I'll share the link/passcode.

You said he was from the resort and really kept things lively. We'd like to request him by name if we can. I'll ask Anel and get back to you. Also feel free to tell her to book the same DJ as the Smith-Schroeder wedding on July 20.

We will be a small group under 25 ppl and dont need an extreme sound system for dancing or anything, just something to connect a mic to so my guests can hear well enough for speaking and for first dance and background music. Have any past brides used one? Thanks for your time ladies, happy planning!! As for tables - here is what Anel sent me when I asked. They seat 10 (although we had 2 people randomly join another table and the 12 seemed to work fine as well:
  9. Quote: Originally Posted by CAmomofbride Another question, beyond the wedding, what type of excursions did your guests seem to enjoy? Did they use the excursion desk at the resort, go into Puerto Morelas directly to book snorkeling, book before they came, etc... Is there a bus available to take into Puerto Morelas, did people use taxis or even walk down the beach to town? Any insight is appreciated. I only booked/paid for one "excursion" - we rented 5 buses to take people into Cancun to go partying at a club one night (Thursday night). That was a hit. Otherwise, I sent out some info to guests in advance advising they wait to book until there (I heard its cheaper). Then we offered to organize (but not pay for) one other excursion to swim with the whale sharks. About 30 people ended up doing that - athough only 10 on the day we went and the rest organized amongst themselves. Many people went to Tulum and to the cenotes and we heard nothing but great things.

They play club music most afternoons and people are dancing both in and out of water. Swim up bar is packed. I imagine it matters how many people are at the resort but it was a great party scene when we were there. Those who wanted to chill out went to the preferred club pool. As an aside, the pools are gorgeous - and huge.
  11. Hi - Sales pitch - we warned all of our guests about the sales pitch. Some still got confused and went and were annoyed. The rest were on top of saying no. 2nd thing... just got our slide show from our professional photographer. It coincidentally came the day after we received the video of the wedding from the videographer. On the video - OMG - I never thought I would want that, but since it came with the package we did it. I am SO GLAD we did. Honestly, its hard to remember your wedding - there is so much going on and so much adrenaline. The video gave me a way to see it from my guests perspective and also to experience it a bit myself as if for the first time. Totally do it!!! And, here is the link to our slideshow from the photographer, who we LOVED - http://schroeder.amorcitocorazonstudio.com/#/schroeder-1/ Molly
  12. We had about 20-25 kids at our wedding ranging in age from 1-15. They LOVED the Explorer's Club and Core Zone. I ordered kids meals for anyone under 12 and 12 and over got to pick off the adult menu. Everyone seemed happy with their food and I loved having them on the dance floor. My brother and sister-in-law opted not to bring their young sons (2 and 4). They told us after that they deeply regretted it after seeing how great it worked out with the other kids. They were worried about leaving their kids with strangers but checked out the Explorer's Club and said that in retrospect they would have felt totally fine leaving them there.
  13. The roof on one side of the Tequila terrace is about 30 feet high and there are no pools over the railings on the other side... hence the need to hire them to hang. You could bring lanterns and hang them under the one part of the tequila terrace that has a slatted roof. I saw pictures on here where people had done that. It works - but depending on how big your wedding is, would only cover a small section (maybe use as the dance floor?).
