    Hey brides! I just got done reading... did anyone experience any major issues with the wedding/reception going wrong? I'm concerned because I have an outside wedding planner in Riviera Maya and Ana, Gabriela, and Pilar (the group reservations manager) are impossible to get in touch with. Also does anyone have the outside wedding coordinator policies and list of vendors they use? We aren't putting down our deposit till we have those two things. I'm stressing hard core, we plan on getting married in May 09 and the clock is ticking...

        I'm afraid I didn't use an outside planner, so I am not sure. But I don't think I'd recommend it because they have quite strict policies for the vendors that are not part of the hotel plan, and I don't know how an outside planner would be able to organize the hotel people. Ana did a great job for me of organizing everyone at the hotel....

        I didn't have trouble getting in touch with them. Maybe try calling once just to make sure you have the address right?

        Good luck!

Also, I've read all your posts and they were all very helpful to me, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I also got to see some of your wedding pictures and they look fabulous!! I know the emails I have are correct because the wc's have responded to me before... please keep your fingers crossed!!!!!!!!

                Fantastic, good luck!!! It will be great.
                The WC I had, was fantastic, and always got back to me pretty quickly, I hope you have the same experience. I was so impressed because when I showed up on my first day a few days before the wedding, I went to meet with her, and she had ALL my emails printed out, with things highlighted, so I know she was paying attention.

                Also, she was the one the made everything go smoothly in a Mexican resort that was NOT good at organizing for 80 people, haha. She distributed all the OOT bags personally because the receptions messed it up, she organized the mariachis when they didn't show up, and we didn't even know that happened! She sorted out the problems with the hotel dividing our guests into two hotels accidentally, she did it all, so if yours is anything like her, you have NOTHING to worry about. :)

                Good luck!
                Margaret & Eric
