Just wanted to pass this along..

Not sure if others were concerned about this or not, but when I asked for initial info about getting married there, I asked if the tent was the only option. I just heard back from Elena a couple days ago and she said that you could "buy a bamboo wooden structure where you can add flower arrangements instead of the tent". Surely she means 'rent' not buy, but either way that's great news for me! So there is another option. I plan on asking her if she could send me a picture of what that might look like and what it might cost to rent and decorate it.

 

Also, is it odd to not have to put a deposit down to secure the date? I mean it's nice not to have to come up with the money, but I would worry about it being actually secured for my wedding or not. Anyone else worry about that, or is that really not an issue? Guess I just assumed everywhere would require a deposit.. Thanks ladies!

Thats greeat news! 82 turtles I am not mad about the tent neither..please share the info when you get it!

 

In relation to the deposit I was just thinking the same....is a bit odd and they havent even asked me for a trip confirmation or anything neither. So far, the only thing I have paid for is the photographer.

I felt so weird that all they did was take my name.  I kept expecting to get there & they'd be like, "Morgan, who?"  But, I saw my name in the book and that really was all they were going by.  It was a very relaxed system, but they got it done. 

 

And yes, this hotel is way cheaper than others.  Everything was fabulous.  They just don't charge a lot for it.  Seriously, my wedding was a bargain & I couldn't get over how much we got for around $400.

Hi Morgan,

That's reassuring!! I would worry about the same thing! I'm more than happy to put a deposit down to guarantee a day, but sounds like they truly don't require it and everything goes well. Thanks!!

btw, Morgan, just checked out your Zazzle shop & postcards for Mexico. I was looking for something just like that yesterday after I saw another bride's cute vintage Hawaiian postcard STD's! 

I've bookmarked your page and will be in touch if I decide to go with that idea! Need to probably set a date and location first before I get carried away with DIY projects... wink.gif

Yes im based in the UK - we booked with Thomson as we have travelled to this hotel before about 4 years ago and booked with Thomson then.  The way in which it works is you book a holiday and then just add the cost of the wedding on top.  I know Thomas Cook also go to this hotel.  They are both about the same price.  Its all pretty easy really.  Good luck x

I dunno what to do re the DJ neither, I want to have the DJ but not sure whether to get him for the 5 hours, so that we can use the equipment for the speeches or just get him since 7 or 8.....

 

The tables (for the private reception) are rounded  for 10 people, except the head table but I suppose you can ask them to re-arrange. I will probable have a seating chart since my guests are coming from Ireland and Spain and most of them have never met!

 

Btw Josietoms. I see you are from the UK... I am living in Ireland and still have not booked the trip (starting to freak out now)!!! who did you get it with? think might work out better for us if we book from Madrid but I want to explore all the options!

Kind of quiet on here lately! Just wanted to follow up.. I heard back from Elena, and she said the rental price for the wooden bamboo structure would be about $250. I don't have the picture she sent with me here, but PM me if you'd like me to forward that on.

 

Anyone have the live music options and prices for the ceremony and/or cocktail hour?

 

thanks!

Elena sent me prices for a Mariachi "band" for the ceremony, a bit dear, is 400 $ for 45 min....you can chose the songs you want them to play. To rent the sound equipment is 45$/h.

 

82turtles, I tried to PM re the bamboo structure but doesnt let me (?)....would you mind putting a picture here if you have the chance? thanks

Baezas,

Hm, that's strange it won't let you PM me. Well this is my first time trying to add an image, so let me know if it doesn't work!

 

Below is the picture that Elena sent me. She said "I attach a photo where you can see the white tent and the bamboo on the back of the altar. It costs about 250usd and it can be fixed on the back of the altar."

Kind of confused me a little bit -- not sure if they would put up the tent AND the bamboo thing like in the pic or if they would set up just the bamboo structure. Guess that's another thing to follow up on with her..
