        Emma, That's awesome that you will be there then! We also arrive on the 15th. I'm getting really excited. The planning has been pretty stress free and easy! We just have a few more things to get ready and everything will be done. How about you?? Almost all of our guests are booked now, just a few stragglers that probably won't book till close to the wedding.

            Question ladies.  Does anyone know if the all-inclusive part is only from 11am to 2am?  There are several people in my party that might not like the fact they can't get a cocktail until 11am.  I read different things on different websites.  Anyone that has already been there have any idea?  Thank you in advance!

              HI Ladies,

               

              I am too getting married at this resort. My date is set for April 26!  Maybe I will see you there!  How many people do you have coming and what do you plan on doing after the dinner?

               

               

              Thanks!

                Hi Emma, Sorry havent been on this forum for ages, I keep meaning to write a review but never seem to get round to it. Anyway....I will just say our wedding was amaaaazing. We could not fault the day at all. Just to give a brief review.... Hair and make up - OMG we hired the boys from Styling Trio Riviera Maya, who were fantastic!!!We had to pay for guest passes for them to come to the hotel but were worth every penny. They were very professional and myself, 3 bridesmaids and our mums were totally thrilled with how we looked. Photographer - Again we hired an outside vendor, Octavio Montes. He was great, friendly and made us feel very relaxed, the package was good value for money and he delivered our prints before we returned home. Wedding - We got married at 1pm, loved the beach location. We had a legal wedding so had to have blood tests prior to the day, which Lupita organised for the doctor to come to the hotel. The minister who married us done the ceremony in English and she was lovely, she cracked some jokes and made It a relaxed non formal ceremony - just what we wanted. We chose our music before hand which sounded great. You really don't need to worry about things like a rehersal etc, Lupita goes through everything with you. After ceremony we surprised all of our guests with a private sunset catamaran tour by Paradise Catamarans. This was the highlight of the wedding by far. It was perfect. We had an open bar, everybody loved it. We had our first dance whilst the sun was setting, I could go on and on about this...... Reception meal - This was the only thing that didn't go to plan... But it turned out better in the end anyway!! We had booked the Italian buffet originally but it was closed when we got there. Lupita suggested we had it in the Mediterranean a la carte, we ageed and everyone said it was the best meal of the 2 weeks we were there. The Italian was buffet, which I'm glad we didn't have in the end, this one was served to us by awesome waiting staff, so attentive. Honestly I could go on forever... If you want some pics or any other info then send me your email address. You will have an amazing time. xx

                  Hi Emma

                   

                  I am curious about the Styling Trio that did your hair and makeup.  I have heard not so great reviews about the hair and makeup stylist at the resort and am looking for other options. I had inquired about having my makeup and hair done with another outside vendor but found they were super expensive - $140 just for makeup.  So if you could share some more information on about the people that did yours that would be appreciated!
