    When is everyone planning on doing their welcome cocktail party (for those that are having one)...???

    I was thinking the day we land (as of right now, we are leaving 6:30am Toronto and arriving 9:30am Cancun)....but my TA brought to my attention that should we be delayed, it could be super tight.  Also, would the guests want a planned event right away? 

    My worry is that the point of it (to get to know everyone) will be lost a little a day and a half after we arrive!

    Any thoughts?

    As well, for those staying a week and going with the legal ceremony....which day out of your week are you planning your wedding day?  I know we have to be in the Country for 3 business days, not sure what makes sense...?

      Yet, ANOTHER question.....is anyone doing/did a private group catamaran cruise?  If yes, did you use Lomas? Is it cheaper to use someone else? 

      :)

        I was wanting to do one but I haven't checked into pricing yet? What have you come up with?

          I did a legal ceremony.  English is a second language and yes they have an accent and trouble pronouncing some things if it does not originate from their original script.  I'm was just impressed and humbled that they offered it - esp considering that we are the visitors in a place where the national language is Spanish!  When you do a legal ceremony they go by a specific script - I added stuff before and after the "official script" and had family members preform the "hand ceremony" and "sand ceremony".  I loved everything!  But I was also open to having the legal part preformed in Spanish if necessary - I guess it depends on how flexible you are.

          Hello All Past and Future Brides!

           

          I am having a very difficult time deciding between a Legal and Symbolic wedding because I am concerned about the Judge or Minister not being able to speak very good English.  I have seen a lot of wedding videos (some at Azul) where the judge/minister speaks very bad English and you cannot understand what he/she is saying throughout the entire ceremony.  We are having our ceremony videotaped professionally and it would be so much better if we could understand what is being said at the ceremony.  I really want to do the legal ceremony but now I am leaning more towards the Symbolic ceremony and getting married in US before or after the wedding. 

           

          Do you know if the Ministers for the Symbolic Wedding speak better English than the Judges for the Legal Wedding?

           

          Is anyone having a friend or family member performing the ceremony instead of hiring a Minister?

           

          I was wondering what other brides are doing? 

           

          Looking forward to hearing from everyone and thank you!! J

           Nope - not included in my free sweet wedding pkg either

          I've changed my package multiple times, so anything is possible :)

          I had to pay for my bouquet (we did the Free Sweetheart), but it was $60. It was beautiful. 



          Reception chairs are covered with white covers and white bows (included in the sweet wedding pkg for free).   If you want the chairs covered for the reception and "your bows added" - make sure you tell them.  I had silver bows that I brought transferred from the ceremony to the reception thinking that they would just add them to the covered chairs and substitute my bows for the white ones - but they didn't.  The chairs at my ceremony were uncovered with the bows I brought.  I didn't really care - but if its important to you - let them know.

            Interesting!  Ok, well I feel better knowing I only need to purchase the covers for the ceremony.  That at least makes the price half of what I was thinking.

              I need to correct myself...if you are paying for your own private reception then the covered chairs and white bows are included.  I had the free wedding pkg and added on my private reception.   Sorry for any confusion.

                I just checked out the lomas travel site today, my TA had me look into it.....I was thinking of a 3 hour cruise with canapes type food and drinks, but on their site its a sunset cruise with hor d.'s /drinks and then you stop at a beach and have dinner served there with a sparkling wine toast and a sax player.  That is $87-$100 per person....depending on what dinner option you choose.  I wasn't really wanting to make it a dinner...nor pay that much per person...so am still looking into it.

                I know that some private companies in the Mayan do this, I just get nervous...you just don't know!

                  Because it was legal, do you have to have a judge?  is that your only choice?  or can you have a minister?

                    Most of our guests get in on Friday, we are having the welcome party Sat and the Wedding Sunday.

                     

                    Brides getting hair done - Just a thought I had. I scheduled my "Trial Run" at the spa the same day as my Welcome Party. I figure not only is it a trial but then I have fabulous hair for the Welcome party :)

                      We are doing a full welcome dinner using the beach bbq menu.  We are getting married on Saturday - some of our guests are arriving on Thursday, some on Friday, so we'll do the welcome dinner on Friday night.  I guess it depends on when all of your guests are arriving.  Since ours aren't all arriving on the same day, it makes sense to do it the first evening that everyone would be there.  I think it would be ok if you do it a day after you arrive....it gives everyone some time to settle in.  How large of a group are you expecting?
