I have fallen in love with this resort!! We are wanting to get married here, however, we are torn between the gazebo or beach for our ceremony. We love the look of the gazebo, however, being right beside the pool I am worried about having people in our pictures that we dont want as well as the noise level. Again, the beach has potention to get a lot of extras in our photos. For those of you who have married there did you find this to be a problem? And where did you choose to get married and why? Thanks so much!!

Hi there! Welcome to the board :)

I chose the Gazebo b/c we don't want to walk on the sand, lol.

The wedding team apparently does a good job of keep on lookers out of pics - and depending on when your ceremony is, people may be back at their rooms getting ready for dinner anyway.

They do private dinners for two either on the beach or in the wine cellar room of one of the restaurants. They have a "silver menu" which is $150 and a "gold menu" which is $200. We are doing the gold menu on the beach and it involves lobster and filet with champagne. Can't remember the other courses. I would contact: info@secretsmaromabeach.com.mx

Saza175 - this sounds wonderful! Just the 2 of you, really sounds so romantic. And tempting in my planning as well lol. Our families have been fine with everything, really great and supportive upto this point. But my girls on the other hand have been giving me so much BS about where we are getting married. Its horrible, we actually just told them this week that we decided NOT to have a bridal party anymore. IT was becoming so stressful and upsetting. And this is def NOT what we want our Maroma Beach wedding turning into! SO either way, with them there or by my side or as a guest, it really dosnt matter anymore.... I am going to marry the love of my life, in the most beautiful location I can ever imagine, and it is going to be the BEST day of my life! :)

 

Jay45- We choose the beach location, because of the white sand and that fab color water for pictures. We really wanted to capture the essence of the location in Maroma Beach into our ceremony. I'm even going barefoot for the ceremony :) We did take some time to come to this decision because my father is slightly handicapped and cannot walk in sand. But we discussed this with Ceclia (coordinator at Secrets) as well as my wedding planner here in CT, and requested if they can put down some sort of hard walkway. (wood planks or such) that will be covered with an isle runner so that it wont look tacky. We will be doing cocktail hour by the pool, and we are still indecisive on a location for the reception.

 

And that private dinner on the beach sounds wonderful!!! I think I will put that on my honeymoon registry. Anyone doing a honeymoon registry? and if so are you using the one through Secrets or using an outside one? We havent signed up yet, but would like to get the ball rolling. Any suggestionshuh.gif

 

Thanks,

Linda

XOXO

We are still working on our honeymoon - we are only staying at the resort a couple more days after the wedding and then heading back to NYC.

We're going to go on our honeymoon for a couple weeks in January but aren't exactly sure where yet - maybe Thailand and the Maldives?

 

I know there are tons of other sites with honeymoon registries - Starwood has a good one (W hotels, Sheratons, Westins),

has anyone talked live with cecilia? I have signed and faxed over our contract but now I am wondering about all the specifics. how is everyone determining what your reception table decor will look like? has anyone asked about upgrades like the flowers? are the only flowers available the ones that she sent in the package?

When your wedding date?

Are you doing a site visit before your wedding?

 

Cecilia can basically do anything you want - just email her pics and colors and she is so easy to work with. I met with her back in March and am going to meet with her again when we are down there for a friend's wedding Memorial Day weekend. I have heard though you can basically wait until you get down there for your wedding and she will take care of everything right before.

 

As for flowers - you can use the designs in the packages and customize them however you want.
