That would be great Julilynn if you have it and can post it! I never thought Cecilia would make a big deal out of it, I just hadn't asked for it yet:-)
I too haven't heard much from Cecilia lately...it's taking her WEEKS to get back to me on things...I'm wondering if maybe she's suddenly tied up dealing with extra weddings b/c of the Dreams Tulum closure...?

Anywaaay, the resort photographer is Juan Navarro...I personally never tried to contact him, as we are using another photographer. But I do know a lot of girls on this forum said they'd e-mailed him and it took him ages to respond...There may be some reviews of his work on here somwhere too...

Since an hour of photography is included in our package, we're having him for the reception only, when the dancing starts, since the other photog we hired will be gone by then:)

Sorry guys I donâ€t have it…I never asked for a copy of the nonreligious ceremony. It might be taking so long b/c I donâ€t know if Cecilia has it. When I asked her about adding the sand ceremony to the end of our ceremony she offered me the JPâ€s email. She might have to go through this person to get it…I am not sure.. BTW, the sand ceremony is free if anyone is interested in adding it…

 

Since we are having such a small wedding the photographer was one of our top priorities. I was never able to reach Juan to see his work so I booked Diego from Del Sol. You can see from the forum they do awesome work and are very easy to get in touch with..

I am flying my own photographer down to the resort. I've seen the website for the resort photographer and very much want to avoid photos like that. Also, i've read on this forum from other girls that he takes MONTHS to get back to people, if at all. Overall, i'm just not impressed but i also knew i was going to splurge on a photographer before we even got engaged.

Hey Maroma ladies!

 

Just got this centerpiece price list (and pics) from Cecilia...so thought I'd post it here...

(I think they all look a little bit...dinky...for what they're charging...but maybe that's just me:-)

 

Hmmm...for some reason it won't let me attach the file...maybe it's too big?

Anyway, if anyone wants to to see it, maybe just PM your e-mail and I can send it to you that way...

Wow -- Cecilia's on a roll this week! :-)

 

She just sent me the non-religious ceremony script...I think she sent me the uber brief version...so I'm sure you can add whatever other elements you want, IF you wnat anything more...

 

Here it is: (I've just copied and pasted, so obviously some of the Enghlish is wonky:-))

 

 

Welcome Words, we have come together to be witnesses…

 

Then the minister reads a poem by William Peterson, “ The art of marriageâ€

 

 

A good marriage must be created.

 

In the marriage, the little things are the big things.

 

It is never being too old to hold hands.

 

It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once each day,

 

This a short version that I found.

 

It is never going to sleep angry.

 

It is having a mutual sense of values and objectives.

 

It is standing together and facing the world.

 

It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

 

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

 

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

 

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each person can grow.

 

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

 

It is not only marrying the right person

 

It is being the right partner.

 

 

 

Then your can exchange vows:

 

 

I __ take you__ to be my wife to have and to hold form this day forward in sickness and in health for as long as we both shall live

 

 

Then Rings

 

 

And Signature J

 

 

Then the Minister reads you “apache blessingâ€

 

les leo apache blessing(tradicional para ellos)

 

pronouncements and wedding kiss

Hey ladies... I am one of the brides to be that are being shuffled from Dreams Tulum to Secrets Maroma Beach. I haven't read of anyone else being sent to Secrets though, so who knows... perhaps I will be one of the first from this forum to be married at Secrets. I leave on Saturday (3 days) and my symbolic ceremony is on Wed., Nov 55h. Civil marriage is at the airport on Nov 1st on our way to Cancun. LOL.

 

Anyhow... I will post up a review from a wedding perspective when I return (three weeks from now).

 

Ciao ladies, happy wedding!!

Welcome! :-)

I'm sorry to welcome you under such crazy circumstances (you being moved last minute) -- but I can't tell you how excited I am we'll have a review of Secrets Maroma -- FINALLY! :-)

(And I just noticed we're both in Vancouver! :-))

Yeah, I don't think many DT brides have moved to Secrets b/c it's adult's only...
But whatever info you can give us will be GREATLY appreciated!!

I hope that even though it's not what you originally wanted, that your trip and your day turn out beautifully..
And PLEASE, if there's ANYTHING..information, etc...I can send to help you out, just ask!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
