    Of course we can still be a savvy savyy bride :)!!!

    If you need any information about furniture rental, decor set ups, flowers and Dj we can send a lot of photos from the hotel with our equipment! You will love it all!! We have very good rates and now we are launching on September super discounts celebrating our anniversary. You can keep being a savvy bride :)!!

    We have worked closelly with Diana and Paola several weddings and events at the Hotel, so we know each amazing place of this beautiful hotel!

     

    I would love to help you planning everything, please send me a PM with your email to send our presentation, pictures and prices.

     

    Have a great Sunday!!!

    Thank you all for the great information!  I'm not sure why my replies aren't posting, hopefully this one works.  Diana is the Sales Manager negotiating our room rates so it sounds like Paola is probably the WC at Ceiba?  I'm sure I will be hearing from her soon, just feeling a bit anxious since the wedding is only a little over two months away.  I think our best bet will be to use a planner in the area, just nervous we may get gouged for the last minute planning.  Oh well, it is what it is I guess, just have to cut back on the extras. Thank you for all the comforting words about the resort. We are really looking forward to staying there now!

      Hello,

       

      We work closely with Paola and this is the main thing -  a good partnership between the hotel WC and the outside Wplanner

       

      Would love to send you some ideas for your wedding and create a special package for you which includes everything from Dj, to flowers to our UNIQUE lounge to chill-out.

       

      Regards,

          Hello! Hope you are all doing well! It's been a while so I though I'd check in. Our wedding is just over 6 months away, and I finally feel like we have made some progress. We have almost 62 rooms booked!  A few questions:

           

          1) Are any Americans doing a legal ceremony in Mexico? If so, just curious if this was a huge pain?  Can you still have a family friend/relative do the ceremony?

          2) We are having the rehearsal dinner on the beach one night and our wedding on the terrace.  I guess we have to get lighting for both. Has anyone looked into this? If so, any recommendations?

          3) Any tips on DJs or guitarist for the ceremony?  We are looking into DJ Mannia and Javier for the ceremony.

          4) For the rehearsal dinner, we were thinking of getting steel drums. Does anyone have any recommendations or an idea on how much this costs?

          5) For dinner we were thinking of the 3 course plated menu---wondering if anyone else has decided what they are doing or any recommendations from people who were married there?

           

          Whoo hoo. Making progress finally!

            Hey girls. Apologies if I missed it somewhere in the thread, but have any of you negotiated a group rate with Ceiba del Mar for your wedding guests? If so, what did you get it down to? Thanks for any insight!

              This is a VERY delayed reply to your post - sorry! 

               

              1)  We are currently booked for a legal ceremony.  A judge must perform it for it to be legal, and you cannot really personalize/incorporate any readings, prayers, etc.  You do exchange rings, and you can say your own vows, but other than that it is out of your hands and up to the judge.  Have you looked into the legalities of it for when you return?  I know the US government recognizes foreign marriages so long as the marriage is legal in the foreign country.  However, I am having problems with finding out what NY state recognizes, etc.  Just curios what you know...

               

              2)  We are having Planner1 hang white chinese lanterns on the terrace for the reception, along with candles on the tables and tiki torches in the sand.  We have not yet decided where the rehearsal dinner will be.  What did you decide to do for lighting?

               

              3)  We booked Javier and DJ Doremix.  Both were very responsive.

               

              4) We decided on a mariachi for the rehearsal dinner.  The drums sound great though!

               

              5) I think we are going for 3 course as well - beef and fish option.

               

              62 rooms is excellent!  The whole resort will be your friends and family!  We have 29 rooms/56 guests so far... 3 months away!

                My FI and i just looked at CDM today and we were in love with it!  I love that they only have one wedding per day so that you have run of the place for your special day!  We need to review the information and ask additional questions as well as go through pros and cons of each place that is in the running but I would definitely stay there for a vacation in the future!

                    Just came back from my site visit checked out CDm it's gorgeous. Very peaceful. Love that they only do one wedding. Some places I went to seemed like a wedding factor, which I hated. Diana the wedding coordinator is very sweet and so helpful. I will post my full review and pics soon.

                      We felt the same way after our site visit.  Diana was away on business while we were there, but we met with others who were very helpful and showed us around.  Diana then followed up our visit with a phone call to discuss what we thought, our questions, etc.  We have been very happy thus far, and glad we chose Ceiba! :)
