I am newly engaged (as of last Friday) and my fiance and I know that we want a destination wedding.  We have been talking to Cecilia for the last couple of weeks and think we are going to be married on May 3rd, 2013.  I am very nervous to be working with a wedding planner so far away and also about how much the resort will cost our guests, it seems like they can't provide an actual figure until closer to our date.  It just makes it hard to let our guests know how much to save up!  Excited I found this thread though, any other Maroma Brides for May 2013?

Congrats, and welcome to this conversation. You will find it VERY helpful in planning for your big day!!!!! Let us know anything we can help you with specifcally! 

 

 

And, you wont really know the actuall cost til the actual date . .just have to budget as you go with the upgrades, etc!!!! I am bringing alot of stuff myself (overlays, napkins, sashes) because it is ending up cheaper and I am very picky on colors, etc.

Thanks!  I was not sure about a DW but my FI is very set on it.  I am calming down as we get more and more worked out, I just like to have more control with things than I have with planning a DW so far away :)

Thanks!

Hey girlie!  That's really not too bad -- does that include shipping and setup?  Did they say that it would be long enough and stretch all the way across the back?  (since the new beach pergola is larger)

 

Are you using the new beach setup (the larger one)?  If so, would you hang the curtain on the back panel or on either side and leave the back open?  Just wanting some opinions!  Hope your planning is still going well!

Cri, did you pay extra for the flowers & fabric (draped on the wood) in this photo or were they included in the package?
It seems the more I read about the Ultimate Package, the less it actually includes...  I'm so confused -- and my budget is getting out of control expensive!!  UGH!!

Just FYI for those who are curious. The minister in the video above is the same who did our wedding. Those vows are the vows that are provided by the hotel. I think they are really nice. She asked the groom before hand if we wanted religious, not religious, etc.

Also, the DJ they used is the resort DJ I think. It is so much fun getting married at Secrets. I loved it so much and am wanting to go back!!!

 

Who is the minister in this video?  I have been told to use Roxanna, because she speaks English and doesn't need a translator...

 

Out of curiosity, which vows were used in the video, religious or not religious?  My FI and I aren't very religious, but would like some mention of God...  Do you know where I can find the scripts?

Hi!

I think the minister in the video is Roxanna. Maybe someone can verify that for me. She did speak English and no translator was needed. I think that most of the ministers in Mexico will probably speak English (at least in the Cancun/PDC resort area).

The vows used were just the vows that the resort usually uses. The minister asked the groom before the ceremony began how religious we wanted it. He sort of said the same thing that you described. Not overly religious, but just a little. It was very sweet and nice. To get the vows, just email Cecilia and she will send them to you. I don't have them anymore. The translation is not great, but when the minister said them they were fine.

This was the quote planner 1 gave me for them setting up just a back curtain of their own . . . without tying it back . .hanging down.

    • 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?
