1. Going through Sandra, the group sales person, for booking rooms
2. The "Platinum Menu"... has anyone used this... it was offered as an upgrade if we signed a contract for rooms...
3. Photos of us at a ruin... any ruin... in our gown and suit. What do we do?
4. Top choices for reception locations? Does it really matter to book it private?


Thanks and congratulations to all of us!
Welcome to our thread! I'll add you to our bride list.

In terms of question 3, as Bianca said, wedding photography is not allowed at the ruins. I learned that the hard way sad.gif You can read about my experience in my review (I think it's one of the last things in my review). As said in my review you could sneak your way in by only putting on your wedding clothes when you get inside the ruins, but that is your risk (Laura, one of our other brides, did it and got fabulous photos!)

In terms of question 4, it's all a matter of personal preference. The seaside grill seems to be the most popular option I think. In terms of whether you go private or not I think it depends on if you want to do dancing and speeches. For those you'd want to go private but if it's just a dinner, than it's up to you whether you mind having strangers there (I personally would not mind, I would just consider it more as a dinner than as a formal reception). You have to decide what you want to get out of your reception. But read the new policy about the restaurants carefully because it has recently gotten much harder to book the restaurants privately.

My fiancee and all the guys are doing a fishing day with Capt Rick's as well. The best man was in the Mayan Riviera this past spring and went on Capt. Rick's and he said it was one of the best fishing expeditions he's been on. The size of boat depends on how may people will be going.
There is a picture of the convention center terrace on Page 2 of this thread (near the bottom of the page). You could probably fit a max of 50 fully covered (i.e. if you're using it as a rain location), and probably another 25 or so if you don't need to worry about staying away from the edges. It is a bit buggy over there, so if you use that location, I'd reco giving your guests Off wipes of setting up cintronella candles around the perimeter.

Did everyone but me know that cintronella candles ATTRACT bugs so you're supposed to light them and place it away from where you'll be hanging out so all the bugs stay near the candle, not your party? Sorry, totally random, but just found out :)

Thanks for the info about Captain Rick. I also read on another thread that Cancun Catamarans does great excursions, so I'm going to check prices with both of them and then make a decision. FYI - Capt Rick's told me that for a January excursion, we should book by/around mid-November...so 2-3 months in advance.

Neen,

 

You are a rockstar! Thank you for answering a lot of questions for us. Having found out that we can bring our own bows for the chairs was a real winner for me. Also, the tiip regarding the hairstylist Angelina.

 

thank you again.

MadBride - I have the Platinum Menu if you want to PM me for it.

 

Neen - Thanks for all the info!! hope you had a fun pre-wedding trip :) How can I get in touch with Captain Rick for a fishing charter?

 

Thank you for the photog info...I had already emailed the address given for the resort photog but didn't find him to be very helpful. He actually tried to persuade me to book directly through him as oposed to waiting to do it at the resort. Anyone else experienced this? I will try to email him again for specific pricing and times.

 

Congrats SunBride! Well deserved!

oh, I was excited about a wedding video, but it's actually a picture slideshow. (As a side note, it's definitely recent seeing as I notice they copied my aisle & gazebo flowers)

It would be so great to get somebody's video from the resort videographer.

Anyways, here's another picture slideshow that was on youtube

Neen, you are so ahead of the game! Thanks a ton for all the info. I guess I need to get going with planning, I'm a bit behind! I'm getting nervous that I don't have it all together. I'm sure there are still beautiful places available for our cocktail hour, maybe around the pool? Any suggestions from other brides would be much appreciated!

Hi ladies,

 

Neen- Your Q&A with Landy was so helpful. I actually just sent Landy an email last week with about 4 of the questions that you posted. Since I have not heard back from her, it was good to get the answers from you.

 

Question: I have a beach ceremony planned but did not know that there were 2 spots to choose from (did not do a pre-trip). It sounds like the Southside of the beach next to SG is the way to go.

 

What confuses me is everyone seems to be having their reception at the Seaside Grill except I do not remember that being an option for the reception. I was told beach, patio terrace or Ballroom. Is the Seaside Grill Reception an extra charge or is this part of the package? I currently have my reception scheduled for the Patio Terrace but am now thinking of changing it to SG but am worried about extra charges.

 

Ladies, please advise!

 

You are the best!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
