It seems like everyone buys their vases and sand for the sand ceremony and brings them to mexico.  I haven't asked Cecilia about that.  I thought about doing the sand ceremony but I was afraid of how the vase would travel back after the sand was poured in it.  Does anyone know how this works??

  Do you know if the sand and hand ceremony are before or after the ring ceremony?   And last question: do you have the text of the ceremony and vows?   Thank you for your help

Anyone who's wedding is coming up soon, or already passed can you tell me when you decided on all the little details? Like flowers, menu, decorations? My wedding is 6 months away and this is stressing me out already. Cecilia sent me a ton of pictures of decorations, am I supposed to pick out of them without knowing any of the prices? Are the only bouquets they have to chose from the ones on their website? Same goes with the cake.... Also anyone who is having their reception at the gazebo what are you doing for lighting? This just occurred to me that the inside of the gazebo will be dark. I thought I was pretty much set and had everything planned, now I have so many more things to decide on! @CriCri: Cecilia sent me the wording for the symbolic ceremony. I would assume that since the sand ceremony is added by you, then you can decide when during the ceremony you want it. I have read a ton of ceremony scripts and its been done at different times during the ceremony. Most of the time it is after the vows and rings. But really It's up to you. I think that I am doing the hands of the bride and groom reading, and I want it done before the vows and rings.

newloves1975, I'm not sure about the bouquets, but I just so happened to have asked Cecilia the same question about the cakes and she says yes those are the most up to date cakes to choose from.  And the flavors are are vainilla, cheese cake and 3 milk cake.  =)

 

Anyone have experience and opinions on the different flavors?

 

Did anyone use an outside vendor for their bouquets?  We have the Ultimate Wedding package and were trying to apply the bouquet included in the package towards an outside vendor flower instead.

My wedding is only 2 weeks before yours and I was wondering when I need to decide on that stuff too, but I assumed we didn't have to do it yet.  

 

We're having our reception at the Gazebo too.  I've read a lot of reviews and I don't remember anyone who had their reception at the gazebo saying anything about the lighting.   Are you sure it's dark?  It looks like they set up lighting outside around the tables.  Maybe that's enough to light up the gazebo because I haven't read anyone commenting on that.  That's a good point though.  I never would of thought of that.  No one will want to dance if it's dark!

After my little freak out yesterday I sent Cecilia an email asking about lighting. She sent me an email back with a picture of the reception set up at the gazebo with a light circled in red, (near the pool) if anyone has the "wedding areas" document she sent out the picture is from there. She never verified that the gazebo was dark, but that's kinda what I get from the picture she sent. She also sent me a VERY helpful document "wedding services price list 2011-2012" this has all the decor WITH prices. She copied and introduced me to someone at planner1events. I guess that's the decorating/setup company they use...? This is extremely helpful! It's making me rethink my budget though! Cecilia is wonderful, she is always so helpful and quick to respond. I just don't understand why she doesn't send out all the information, pricing, maybe a FAQ list after we put our deposit down. It seems like all of us have to ask her a question, then we get an attachment with pictures etc. Just my opinion, it would lessen her inbox and make things a bit easier for herself. KCDawn-from what I understood from the attachments she sent me, if there was lighting, candles, etc it was all purchased separately. I wish someone who was married there could let us know. I don't want to make these decisions too early, my goal is 6 weeks before the wedding have everything picked out. Cecilia did say to make the spa apointment for hair/makeup 1 month prior to coming down. I can make a massage apointment when I get there, or before. Another bit of information that I didn't realize or know until yesterday. The champagne flutes are mailed to your house AFTER the wedding. And if anyone reviewed the video packages, the basic video of the ceremony is included in the ultimate package, but to upgrade to the next video package it's only $108 more. That sounds like a good deal to me.

Since you're talking cake, there's a question I want to ask Valeria/Cecilia but it wasn't urgent so I haven't checked yet.  Hopefully you or someone else here knows the answer.  We're expecting 30-40 people.  We are being charged $5 per person over 20 for the cake.  There are upgraded cakes that are bigger than the cake included in the package and much nicer looking.  If we just paid to upgrade the cake to one of the bigger ones would we still have to pay the extra $5 per person??

You're so right!  It would be helpful if we got all of this stuff emailed to us after the contract and deposit were taken care of.  Would you mind posting the wedding services price list?

That price was confirmed by Cecilia too, because I figured it would only be $78. This is the email: Video package 1 is included in the ultimate package. If I wanted to upgrade to video package 2 will it only be an additional $78?- Price list do not necessarily reflects the Price of the items included in the wedding package, in this case the upgrade it would be of $108 usd

newloves1975, that is a great deal to upgrade the video package!  Thank you so much for letting us know.
