      I am getting married in October and initially I requested for the ceremony to start at 5.  Ana emailed me a few days ago and said that it might be better at 4.  Does anyone know more about this??

            So it's finally here, we leave this afternoon and the big day on Monday.  I'm kinda freaked out but so excited too.  We are so over weight on our luggage but hoping that they are nice to us at the airport.  Wishing everyone else getting married soon good luck and I will definitely check back in when we get home and let everyone know how things go.

                  Congrats on your wedding! sounded amazing! I was curious about how to contact this hotel for a November 2011 wedding but I cannot get in touch with the hotel. Does anyone have a contact number besides email that I may use to start my wedding process? It would be so appreciated.

                    Here's my review : )

                     

                    The resort:  The Valentin was WONDERFUL.  This place is just great.  From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty.  The pool is so much fun, the beach is gorgeous and swimmable.  We loved all the restaurants.  This is the best place I have ever been to.  Planning to return ASAP.

                     

                    Our room was a silver suite and it was awesome.  The Jacuzzi tub was such a nice addition to the already over-the-top romantic room.  I took a long bath every evening before dinner.  So relaxing.

                     

                    Champagne, fruit basket, cute animals made out of towels, room service, minibar……I could go on and on.

                     

                    The wedding day:  The day could not have went more smoothly.  The only bump we had was my sister & brother in law’s flight was delayed and they were unable to make the ceremony.  But Ana & Adriana were on their walkie talkies until the second I was to walk down the aisle checking with the front desk to see if they arrived.  They didn’t get there until after 7, so the missed the ceremony but were able to join us for the reception dinner.

                     

                    Our ceremony was performed by Kiko Flores.  He did a beautiful job and incorporated everything I had requested. 

                     

                    They decorated our room beautifully on our wedding night.  There were roses &  petals every where & bride & groom swans made out of towels. 

                     

                    My wedding was perfect : )

                     

                    Wedding Coordinator:  We had Ana as our wedding coordinator.  Everything was perfect.  She had every little detail exactly as we had talked.  It was amazing. 

                     

                    Flowers:  Exactly what we wanted.  They were so beautiful.  We ordered extra flowers for the cake, my mom, BM, MOH, etc.  Everything came exactly as ordered – down to my special request to have the MOH bouquet wrapped in white satin ribbon.

                     

                    Cake:  Over the top gorgeous.  I gave Ana a picture from a bridal magazine of my dream cake and brought her the ribbon from home.  It was perfection, down to the flowers and detailing on the cake  When they brought it out everyone was thrilled.  It was so beautiful.  And it was yummy too!  We chose chocolate.

                     

                    Reception: At the Mexican restaurant and just ordered off the all-inclusive menu.  They waited on us hand and foot & did a great job setting up for the cake.  They even had our champagne flutes waiting for us at the restaurant – which I totally forgot about and never would have missed had they not shown up.

                     

                    Photos by Blue Lens Caribe:  Awesome.  Seriously, some of these photos look like they should be in a brochure advertisement for destination weddings and my gorgeous husband looks like a model in his solo shots.  Perfection.  Ashley and Dennis were our photographers and they were great to work with.  Professional, fun, and the end product is truly outstanding.  The wedding was on Wednesday and they came to the resort on Friday to show us the pictures.  They put together a slide show for us set to music and the songs they chose were our best man’s wedding song and our 1st dance song!  The slide show instantly brought me to tears & was a great addition to our wedding photo package.  We have watched it about 100 times since we got home.  I can’t wait to play it for our guests at our reception next weekend.

                     

                    I didn’t realize how important the wedding photos were until after the wedding.  As a bride, you are so caught up in everything that you miss a lot of the “scenery”.  I am so glad that we had Blue Lens there to capture everything for us. 

                     

                    Lomas Transfers:  There is a special place in hell for the Lomas reps that kept calling our room trying to sell us excursions.  Even though we met with them in person on our 2nd day to tell them we were getting married and would not be leaving the resort, they kept calling………..and calling and calling  They called us on our wedding night (I watched them write down the day we were getting married, so I was doubly offended by this).  They called us at 8:30 am the morning after we got married.  They called us at 8:30 am the day before we left.  I don’t know about y’all but while vacationing we stay up late and sleep late so these early morning calls were definitely NOT appreciated.  Especially on our wedding night.  Seriously?!

                     

                    They were hassling my mother and her friend the whole time they were there also.  The people who used transfers other than Lomas did not have this issue.  They suck.

                     

                    The only good thing I can say about Lomas is that they got us to and from the airport safely & quickly.

                     

                    Continental Airlines:  Best flying I have ever done in my life.  Hands down.

                     

                    Feel confident in your choice to get married at VIM ladies!  You made a great choice.

                     

                    I saw some comments earlier about shoe choices.  I agonized for hours over my shoes and I never even took them out of the box.  My legs were too shaky before the ceremony & the floors at the VIM are all marble and slippery!  I went barefoot at the ceremony (which was planned) and wore white flips from Old Navy the rest of the night.  Oh well, at least they are dyeable : )

                      Hey Danitha,  I am getting married at the Valentin on October 1, 2011.  I emailed weddings.vim@valentinmaya.com originally and Veronica responded within a couple of days.  I haven't actually spoken to her on the phone but we have been emailing a couple of times a week since early December and she always gets back to me quickly (a few days at most).  The phone number on her email sig is +52(984)206 36 60 ext. 8180 in case you want to call her.  Hope this helps!
