    Congrats Labloom!!!! Can't wait to see pictures! It is so nice to hear that your wedding went well. Ever since that one person posted her bad reviews, I have been a bit nervous.

She is amazing as is all of the Staff at Ceiba. I can't really express how well everything went. Lucky us, Sol Tamargo + Rodrigo Vargas were the awesome photographers and cannot wait to see the pictures!

      I can't say enough great things about this resort for a wedding.
      Still need to write up my formal review. But, here is a link to our slide show by Del Sol!!! We love them. Enjoy!

      Wonderful news! Glad the wedding was perfect for you and look forward to hearing any suggestions you may have. Sol...still trying to convince my fiance it is worth the hefty cost!
      Ishaef - I hope you can! I had to convince Tim on the cost at first too, but they are completely worth every penny and a delight to work with.

          Hey Ladies,

          Thought I would post to see how your wedding planning is going?  I feel like I'm going in circles right now...april wedding and nothing booked yet other than the resort...am I behind?  Ugh

            Not at all!  Just take your list and focus on one thing at a time!  Our order of priority was: securing priest, sending STDs, setting up website, photographer, DJ, makeup, florist....


            List is a lot longer but those were the initial tasks!  It's a lot of work, especially if you want to do serious diligence on the vendors.  Will you be going back for a planning trip??  If so, I would focus on setting up appointments rather than trying to make final decisions now.  You do still have a lot of time so unless there is a certain vendor you MUST have, I wouldn't fret just yet. :)

              labloom - thanks so much for sharing your pictures!  My fiance and I are discussing beach w/arch v. palapa, and your pictures are very helpful!   Looking forward to more details.


              lshaef - I feel the same way about the planning... so many decisions and trying to decide on what vendors, etc.  Have you decided what time you are doing your ceremony?


              lalanyc - thanks for the tips.  Are you doing a civil or religious ceremony?  We are doing a civil/legal ceremony, and I just reached out to the person to schedule the Judge.  Just looking for any tips.

                I think we are going to do our ceremony at 5:30.  Our WC sent us the sunset times and the possible options and I think this will be ok to get pictures in before the lighting is poor.


                We are doing a symbolic ceremony b/c we are planning to legally get married here in the states before going to Mexico but we are not telling out guests.  We figured it would be easier that way.


                When we did our site visit, we decided to do the ceremony on the pier, cocktail at the sushi lounge and reception on the large terrace.

                  Thanks!  We are doing the ceremony at 5:30 as well!  I just paid the deposit for the judge performing the ceremony and confirmed the time.


                  Sorry if I already asked, but have any of you ladies decided on a florist yet?

                    Sounds like you are making progress on your plans.


                    We have been working with Eventos Euphoria but have not finalized everything.  We are planning on using them for all decor items including the lounge seating for the bbq the night before the wedding and the bonfire.


                    Did you do a site visit?  When we went to do ours, we met with three florists.  If you want their contact info, PM me.
