    Hi, I'm new but not a bride. My name is Karen and I am the mother of the groom, planning a wedding for my son and fiance at the Catalonia Riviera Maya. Wedding date is November 27, 2008. (I hope) I have gotten so much information already that has been so helpful. We are all booked but I just emailed the WC yesterday and have not heard back yet. Bride and groom are Kelly Dahl and Adam Owens.

          setting the date with the WC was the hardest part. are they doing legal or symbolic? if it's not the legal ceremony be sure to emphasize that in the email so elena realizes she doesn't need to wait until she knows the judges schedule.

          elena is the WC & she is really nice. She does a great job but is also really busy. She always replied to me quick with everything but setting the date. her emails were very brief but I got all the info i needed.

          i don't know why setting the date is the hardest part. I called the hotel every hour last 4th of july until i finally got to talk to her. then she said, "email me." well, i had already emailed my request 3 times. after the phone call she got me on the books.

            Welcome, Karen! My daughter just got married, and we found so many great ideas here on the forum. Morgan is a treasure trove of helpful hints and will soon become your new best friend! We actually had another groom's mom join yesterday, too. Yay for helpful moms!

              Thanks Morgan, I got most of my information from you! Thanks for doing all of the work for me. I had spoken with a WC at the ElCozumeleno in person because we were going to go there, but things changed so I feel like I am a little late doing all of this. Adam and Kelly are so busy they just want to know where and when to be there. They are doing the symbolic ceremony. Did you just leave the date open and let her decide? We don't really care. Was your wedding free? We have a group of 18 staying 7 days. Thanks for your info

                I picked the date & time & told elena what I wanted.

                The wedding was $350. Since your group is less than 20, you can have dinner in one of the restaurants for the reception for free. it's not private though. We were fine with not having a private dinner. We picked the mexican restaurant. I have pictures of both the mexican & itallian restaurants on the catalonia thread. I don't have any pictures of the japanese steakhouse yet. my camera died that night so I'm waiting to get pics from my guests. that place probably wouldn't work for a wedding reception though. but, i suggest making a reservation there one of the nights. it was a lot of fun. also, they cooked up the fish our group caught for free.



                The $350 fee included so much. it was a really great value.
