It is $250 for the setup and the bonfire lasts for 2 hours. We are doing a bar setup and that is an additional $10pp plus tax and gratuity. Cecilia suggested that we start at 8:30 so that everyone would have time to eat dinner before hand. We are doing the bonfire as a welcome party on Friday night. The wedding isn't until Sunday. I just don't want to be up and out drinking that late the night before the wedding.

Is that including a bar setup as well? I hadn't really considered doing this as I thought it wouldn't be in the budget, but at that price I just may.

We're getting married in August so the bonfire would probably be starting later as the sunsets later. I'd probably rather eat beforehand, but having a bar setup would be a definite.

How long of a bonfire does that $250 include?

Thanks for sharing

Thanks!  I think we're going to do the same setup.  It might be a good idea for us to have it Thursday instead of Friday.  I was waiting to see when most people were coming in before I finalized it.  We're very excited about the bonfire too!

That is the main reason we are doing in on Friday rather than Saturday. I just don't want to be up drinking til 10:30 the night before the wedding.

I am so excited!!

Thanks so much for the info. That's one of the more reasonably priced things I've seen offered at Secrets.

Hello all, just thinking about the resort and activities.  I don't really feel the webiste does it justice.  Does anyone know where to find the information on what activities are offered at the resort.  I heard you can take cooking, dancing lessons etc.  

 

Where is that info?

We are doing the bonfire too!  We are including open international bar and dessert for our guests. I think it was $18/per person.

Hello, ladies!

 

I am new here and trying to figure out if we will be able to swing a Secret Maroma Beach wedding in January.  We know this is the place for us, however we're not sure when we'll be able to save enough.  January does not give us much time, but we did want a short engagement.

 

May question is this: I know that the first package is complimentary, we have decided to go with the Secrets Ultimate Package.  Do they apply a discount to the other packages to compensate for the Wedding in Paradise being free?  ie: Ultimate costs $2999 and the Wedding in Paradise is $949, do they adjust the price thus making the Ultimate $2050?

 

I hope I haven't confused anyone.  Thanks for your help in advance!!

 

Nicole

Hmmmmm.....pretty much all resorts have "entertainment" such as volleyball, dance lessons, yoga, cooking demonstrations, tequila tasting, and different things like that every day. There will probably be a list of things going and give time/location when you get to the resort. Besides that, the entertainment staff will likely be out all day looking for people to participate in those things. Not sure if that is what you are asking, but that is the only thing I can think of.

Great! I'm still considering the desert part.  Did they tell you what the desert is?

Beachbride is correct.  They have the activities Beachbride listed and every day the guests receive a newsletter called the Sundial in their rooms which lists all of the activities.  Side note:  If you're on Facebook, find the facebook page for Secrets Maroma!  They have someone who manages it - the "e-concierge".   The E-concierge also has a separate page.  I follow both.  There are a lot of pictures posted by guests and people ask a lot of questions which get answered regularly by the e-concierge and other people who have been there.  It's been very helpful.  

 

If you have a resort related question, I would post it on the facebook page rather than emailing the wedding coordinators to get the quickest response.  You'll also get answers and suggestions from other guests which is helpful.  If you look through the past posts, chances are someone has already asked the question and the answer is right there.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
