Recommended Posts

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!  I am so happy everything went well!!!  Ceiba is really an incredible place to be married!  We used Planner1 and Javier as well - loved them both!  We used DJ Dorremix who was great as well. 

 

I look forward to seeing your pictures from Ceiba!  Also, be forewarned - you will likely have serious Ceiba withdrawal.  I keep looking at pictures wishing we were back there, and my wedding was over a month ago! 
 

Have a great honeymoon in Fiji! (We are taking a belated honeymoon in August to Huahine, Moorea, and Bora Bora.) 

 

Congrats again!!

ceiba seems expensive for guests but once you get there you will see the amazing value.

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking about booking for my wedding next year, anything I should know before i sign the contracts or think about what month/date to book. Most of our guests would be coming from NY or LA. 

 

Tracy, I was there doing my site visit the day before your wedding! Looked amazing!

Hey Ladies!  My TA just told me today and Ceiba is no longer all-inclusive.  Has anyone else heard this?  When I go on their website it still shows AI as an option...

Congrats!  Ceiba is so incredible!  I did not have any issues w/my contract or negotiations with Ceiba - they were wonderful to work with.  I would just make sure you have the specifics in there that you want/need.  Ceiba was very flexible, though, and will work with you throughout the whole process.  our wedding was the beginning of April and the weather was perfect.  Great sun/temps for the beach and pool during the day, and still cool enough at night to be comfortable dancing. 

 

Good Luck!

Hi Brenners!  I have not seen/heard anything re: AI or not.  However, the majority of our guests did not do AI and we did not have anyone complain/comment about pricing.  A number of our guests did excursions during the day and/or ventured into Puerto Morelos to have lunch or dinner at some of the restaurants there - so AI was not necessarily what they wanted.  Just something for your guests to keep in mind if they are going to venture off the property.

Hi Tweets!  I just heard back from Diana who told me that Ceiba still offers AI.  This is the second TA that we have tried and I am getting beyond frustrated.  Does anyone have a TA that they recommend?  I am hoping third time is the charm!  Tweets, I think I will do a poll of our guests to see what they would like.  That isn't a bad idea.

Brenners -Not sure if this is an option, but why not just offer both rates -all inclusive and room only?  That way you don't have to worry since guests can decide what works best for them. Just a thought!

We used Tropical Wedding Experts who coordinated transportation if our guests wanted to use it and they also created a website for our guests to RSVP with their food choices and room choice. The guests did all of this on line on the website that was created for my wedding. That meant the guests had to book their flights on their own. We had all of our guests book as AI for the days of our wedding events but they had the option to change to European plan on other days. In our contract we had if all guests were AI we did not have to pay for alcohol. I think that was a major no no on the lady who was the WC at Ceiba for about two months. It definitely saved us a ton of money! The price per hour per person for alcohol at Ceiba is ridiculous!! Do you feel like you need a TA or could you negotiate with Ceiba? Good luck Oh and I got the link for my photos. There are a ton but have a peak. http://tsanderson.smugmug.com/Weddings/Laura/Wedding-Day/

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
