It may be a while till I get some good pics, but if you have any questions at all let me know.

It was such a great time we are already planning a reunion. I can see over 100 people going this time because all of us who went won't shut up how great of a time we had :)

      Hi everybody. I'm new to this place so I've been busy reading everybody's wonderful posts and pictures. I am getting married at the Occidental Grand Flamenco Xcaret on September 4th, 2010. It is very difficult to get ahold of Marialma since it is getting to be the busy season for weddings in Mexico, so I scheduled an "in person" meeting with her on February 23rd. I am going to fly down there next weekend just to get all my questions answered and book everything else, dj, photographer, etc. Let me know if anybody has any specific questions they want me to ask and I will get the answer and post it when I get back on the 25th.

          Welcome! And congrats on making your resort choice!

          Marialma is our wedding coordinator - I hope there is not a new one now! She has been very easy to deal with (so far) and seems to really know what she is doing.

          6 weeks to go!

            Gee, great review! thanks so much for posting. I can't wait to see the rest of your pictures.

            I love the decorations. What did you bring from home, and what were you able to rent from Sarao vs. the resort? I'm trying to figure out what is worth bringing.

            Did you do a rehearsal dinner?

            Hi Sarah

            We brought the chair sashes, table runners, table swags, cake stand, stones for the center pieces, floating candles. Sarao provided the hanging balls and curtains. AVI/SPL provided the lighting.

            Here is a video I put together tonight, hopefully will give you better visual of how it looks.

            We did a rehearsal or what we call gratitude dinner but we did it back in Toronto before the wedding. We didn't want to waste anyone's time in Mexico because everyone wanted to do excursions, shop, etc so we thought it was wise to do it at home. The church ceremony rehearsal was 90 mins so we are glad we didn't do a rehearsal dinner after. We had so much other stuff to do before the wedding and everyone was happy we did it back home as well so they were able to do their own thing.
