Not worried, cause I will have company. Danielle will be there waiting for me. LOL

    That's good at least it's a response THINK POSITIVE as my FI says right before I punch him LOL! Luv how they pull a bait and switch so sorry so sorry and no answers.

Ahhh, yes, the first line in bold on the very 1st page says we will be arriving at Iberostar Grand on May 11 bewtween 1-3pm, so what did reyna do after I sent her this document (told her to read it and sign/fax it back) she made our meeting appt. for May 11 at 11am (which I won't be THERE DUH), and listed prices I already had listed and told me I didn't list them than said she can't sign document! that was my losing it point! And my FI doens't understand why i'll make channel 5, so Gail I'll be waiting for ya, it'll be fun maybe we can get sold on the black market once in mexican jail or join the drug carretel crew, so many possibilities to choose from I can't wait!

      lol Gail, you are too funny! I will definitely keep you and Danielle company in a Mexican jail if I have to. I don't know, I've read on the Mr. Iberostar boards that some girls waited up to six months for their apostille to come in...that is crazy! Sometimes I think I should just go down to city hall here with DH and have another civil ceremony. But then I think, well why the f*** did I pay EXTRA to have a civil ceremony in Mexico if I was going to have another one here at home?

        paraisobeachbride-do you really have to wait for your apostille to be recieved before you can begin the process of changing your name? That stinks! I didn't have a civil ceremony there so I wasn't aware of that!

        Oh look - I changed to "full member" today!! hehe! :)

          iberostar09 - As far as I know but I was thinking about trying to change some stuff anyway with my "un-apostilled" and un-translated certificate they gave us after the ceremony.

              i'm a little nervous about how communication is going to go. i just drafted a 2 page word document of questions-- anything to avoid a 2 hour long distance phone call! :)

                Aimee - Gabriela's pretty good at corresponding in a timely manner in my experiences with her, I just wished she was more forthright at our pre-wedding meeting with her at the resort about what we were getting for what we were paying. I hope you find her easy to work with too. :)

                  Hi Girls,

                  Thanks for all the info! I am still new to the forum and its been so helpful! We have been doing alot of shopping around of resorts and still keep coming back to the iberostar! I had a few questions that I was hoping someone would be able to answer for me:

                  1. How many people can fit around the garden gazebo? The chapel?

                  2. If we choose to stay in the Lindo or the Maya would we still be allowed to use the gazebo and the tropical restaurant?

                  3. Are there any other options for a private reception? I thought I saw a photo of a reception held in the breakfast buffet restaurant (la laguna at the Maya I think?) If so what are the costs?

                  Thanks so much!! Also "FutureBotter" this is "FutureLanning" thank for recommeding the site =)

                  Leah

                    Hey and welcome! I hope you stick around the forum to let us know how your planning is going! I was married at the Iberostar Paraiso Beach/Del Mar in February, so I'll try to help you as best as I can. :)

                    1. I'm not 100% sure on a specific number, but we had 16 guests and they all fit inside the gazebo, I have seen pictures with chairs outside of the gazebo too, so I'm sure they could accommodate a slightly larger group if necessary.

                    2. If you stay at the Iberostar Lindo/Maya, you will not have access to the garden gazebo as your ceremony site. It is only accessible to guests of the Beach/Del Mar side, the reason they do this is because each "resort" (each side of the property is considered one resort) only does one wedding per day per resort. If you do have your heart set on a gazebo, there is one in the shopping plaza that Michelle ( beachbride08 ) used for her ceremony and it was lovely. You may want to look in to this. There is also a "gazebo" on the Lindo/Maya side which is a pyramid of sorts above the wave pool, in Michelle's review she stated that she opted not to have her wedding there as the location was in much need of paint touchups/repairs. I do not know the answer to the tropical restaurant question but my guess would be that you would not have access to this either if you were to stay on the Lindo/Maya side.

                    3. I have read on this thread that some ladies have or are considering the convention centre on the property for a private reception but I myself do not have any insight or information on this.

                    Hope this helps! :)
