      will you post the correct website? the one i posted may have changed since then.

      I did really prefer the catalonia buildings & wedding location to DPA. but, the renovations were not complete so it might look a lot nicer before it opens.

      i felt like they treated me so great at the catalonia. they didn't nickle & dime on anything. I see other hotels that charge for each piece of the wedding set up. At the catalonia, the $340 fee covered the chairs, tent, mic, sound system, flowers and so much more.

        The following documentation is required:

        (please write the full name exactly as it is written in the passport).

          Now that we're in the final countdown, I'm starting to think about all the little details. Has anyone used the hairdresser and/or make up person provided by the hotel? We're going to have a private reception at the Pure Chill Out Bar with a slightly modified Grill Menu - we were quoted $62US per person for the private reception. Also, did you prepare your own vows? Was Elena the one to read the vows? Only 4 weeks to go and so much still to do!

            yes, elena did the ceremony. i emailed her the script in advance and brought several backup copies just incase. she did a perfect job with it.

            they have a script they use if you don't provide your own, but i didn't care for it.

            i posted mine in a thread called "share your ceremony script"

            i was told annalisa would do my hair, but she was out of town during my wedding. i have heard she is good.

            i cant think of the person who did my hair's name right now. i posted it somewhere. i thought she was great. she was very relaxing. just came in my room & took care of everything. it was $75. i had pictures of what I wanted done & was very happy with the results. I'll see if i can find where i posted her info.

            i did my own makeup.

                  Hi Morgan,

                  I am hoping to book my wedding at the Catalonia Riviera Maya for next November. I would just like to thank you for this thread. It is very informative. I have to admit I am a bit nervous planning my wedding due to complete lack of experience (i have never even attended a wedding..lol) and this thread is really helpful.

                  I am having a hard time getting Elena to respond to my emails...Did that happen to you as well?? I would like to book my wedding but have not heard back from her. What did you need to book your wedding?? Whick package did you go with??

                  Thanks so much!!

                    Hello All!!

                    I am getting married at the Cat in Nov and have a few questions. Has anyone had there hair and makeup done at the resort? How did it turn out? Also, i really want my grandfather to take me down the aisle but he is in a wheelchair(can walk short distances with a walker). For those who have been married at this resort: Is it at all possible? Has anyone done this at a beach wedding?

                    Thanks for all of your help!! I greatly appreciate it!!

                    Evelyn

                      I am getting married there on Feb 14th. My mom is gonna do my hair so I' don't know for sure, but I will try to find out for you while I'm there. As for your gf walking down the aisle, I'll try to check into it as well.
