Do you know if they'll let you mail stuff down there to put together on the days before the wedding? I've been thinking all along that I'd like to make my own center pieces, invites, STDs, favors, gift bags, bouquets (natural touch flowers) and flower arch. That's too much stuff to bring into MX I think so I wonder if they'd hold that stuff for me?
I JUST heard back from Cecilia about a lot of things I've been having trouble getting info on..and this was one of them:-)
So, I asked her if her/her staff would be able to put on chair bows that I bring, as well as putting out placecards and placecard holders, and menu cards that I'm planning on making etc...and she said no problem! That her staff would be "happy" to do it:-)
Of course, she didn't mention a fee, so who knows if they charge extra...but really, how much could they charge for putting on a chair bow? :-)
So, bottom line, I don't think it will be a problem...
Also, I'm packing a lot of crap in an extra suitcase...BUT, my mother-in-law (who lives in a different city than we do) is going to UPS a box to the resort ahead of time so she doesn't have to bring a lot of stuff with her...(To be honest I have NO IDEA what she would be shipping ahead of time..) So, that's a possibiity, though of course, I'm not sure how much that would cost...

I need some help if you have it! I started the whole process of booking with Secrets Maroma when they were having a promotion (or at least I think it's a promotion because I can't find it on their website anymore). The promotion was if you book a minimum of 10 rooms the bride and groom would get a free room upgrade, giving them a room with internet in it. We are going through Luxe and the girl I'm working with now says that Cecilia says that she's completely unaware of that. I emailed back and forth with a girl that got married at Secrets the first weekend it was open! So i don't know how she CAN"T know about it, she must know about it. So my question is if any of you have gotten that deal, have heard of the deal, or have any emails or information about it. If you do and don't mind sharing I would be forever grateful. Thanks! This is SO my favorite since now I don't feel like I'm alone.
We booked in July and to be honest, I hadn't heard of this promotion...that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, I just probably didn't do my "homework" :-) Our TA certainly never mentioned it, but b/c we have people coming from everywhere (US, Canada, England...) she suggested that we NOT do the "block room" thing b/c it would be difficult b/c everyone would have to book at the same time, in the same room category etc...
As for Internet being available...I know I've read on TripAdvisor that there are some free computers & Internet to use in like the business centre or something...I think I also read that all rooms will at some point have Internet access included...but don't quote me on that. I think some random poster on TripAdvisor said that..your TA should be able to find out though, no?
