Hi Again MarieSam.... thanks for the pics of CEA....I'm still not sure about where our ceremony will be, most likely at our villas. Looking at your pics, tho, I'm wondering about the rear of teh CEA where there is stone/concrete ground. You having been there before, do you think it's big enough and nice enough to hold th ceremony for around 30 guests?

 

Also, any suggestions on little favors from Akumal (or in nearby towns) I can buy to put in the OOT bags? I've got a bunch of things already, but wanted to put in one last thing that is a souvenir from there. Something under $5-$10 each.

 

When are you guys getting there again? We'll be there through Friday the 26th, just missing your wedding....I would have liked to come meet you!!

Hey Kristina!! How are you my fellow CEA bride? smile03.gif

 

The rear of the CEA center does have concrete ground and is actually a nice space, and from what Jenn told me is often used as a dancing/DJ set up area -- but I will say it's not much of a view. I do think 30 people could fit back there with seating but that's defintiely something you'd have to confirm with Jenn.

 

Can I ask, how come you don't want to have it on the beach? The view right in front is really amazing. humble.gif

 

As far as favors....I do know that Jenn makes these small Mexican type cookies that are supposed to be really yummy and packaged very cute, I think they are like $2 or $3 a package, and it comes with a note that says the purchase of the cookies goes toward a donation for the CEA Center and all it's eco-life programs. So that's a really sweet gesture to consider, especially if you're a true animal/nature person.

 

Other cool ideas for favors are the maracas that they sell at many of the souvenier shops in Playa del Carmen. They're colorful, can be bought for as little as $1 each, and are beautifully decorated. Often times have "Mexico" written on them so it's a nice keepsake. I haven't seen any that say Akumal, although that would be a really great find if you can get one! Def. try asking Jenn about this, she may be able to get a good discount on these.

 

We are actually flying into town on Sunday, June 21st -- so we can definitely meet up!!! I know I will be running around like crazy, but would love to meet in between my madness, lol. cheesy.gif We're staying at Casa Romero and also renting a Las Casitas unit from Wed. to Sat. so let's plan to hook up!!

I am actually going with the Mexican wedding cookies for favors at the reception, but I am looking for something loca to the area to add to the welcome bags I am putting in each guest's room. Maracas sound fun!

 

We'll have to se where our schedule takes us. I know the weekend of our wedding will be busy because we will be getting together with our family and guests to do some outings. Will keep you updated!

love the cookie idea! MarieSam - you'll have to post pictures of everything afterwards - I'm having my wedding almost a year after yours (pretty much to the date, as of right now!)

 

Ahhh so glad I found this forum, so many good ideas!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
