    I am late to join, but I have been reading over these pages and want to say thanks for all the valuable information. Especially everything related to the re-opening plans! I feel more in the loop now.

    I am getting married July 6th at del Mar.

    Has anyone organized a fun group event that didn't cost an arm and a leg? I would like to plan and host a group event for all of my guests. There will be about 40 of us altogether.

      Danielle - Great pics! I am so happy for you! How did you like the reception at La Brisa at the Grand? We have it booked for April 18, 2010 and I'm excited to hear how it was.

        ooohhh and a quick heads up... You do not need to wait for wedding coordinator to send you the marriage liscense and apositille to legally change your name in the usa! I thought i was gonna have to wait it out for the apositille (which takes the wc about 4-5 months) but you don't!!! So for all of you that are going to take the hubby's last name all you need is the certificates that the wc gives you while in mexico! I went to the social sercurity office today (you don't have to go in person I just did) and all you need is the marriage liscense/certificate (i don't know which is which but i think i have copies of both either will work), passport, driver's liscense/id card, and if you have your original social sercurity card than you fill out a S-55 form (you can do all this online and mail it from your house too) when there and vo-lah they will send you a new card in 2 weeks. (once, you apply for your social security card you can change all your credit cards and bank accounts over to your new name) I just applied for social security card today and changed all my credit cards and bank accounts in the same day. (credit cards were simple since they check everything electronically you don't have to do anything but make a phone call and the bank accounts i just had to show them my marriage certificate and reciept i got from social security office and they changed all the names on our accounts) Once, you have the social security card you can go to dmv with marriage certificate and social security card and get a new driver's liscense and id card. From there you can change passport and whatever else needs to be done. So don't wait for that apositille you don't need to!!!

            I have just started to work on my welcome books. I was wondering if anyone has a schedule of events for the resorts. Do they still do paella on the beach? Does anyone have a copy of the beach/del mar resort map?

            Thanks

                    Hi all! So, just got confirmation that we are not getting upgraded. We will indeed be at the Quetzal on June 15th. We arrive on the 13th, and they are re-opening at least the Quetzal/Tucan on June 1st.

                    Time is ticking away and I'm still not done. I still need to get an outfit for my son, (he's BM) and a gift for the MOH.

                    I'm also just a bit scared... eek...

                      Has anyone heard if the Del Mar is open? The wedding coordinator told me the Beach side was open but did not mention anything about the Del Mar, but the travel agent is saying the Del Mar will be open..this is soo confusing!!

                      Attached is a resort map that the wedding coordinator sent me for the Del Mar/Beach.
