Anyone use an external DJ at thier wedding at Secrets Maroma? The hotel's suggested DJ is telling me that if I use an outside DJ the hotel will charge me $350 "insurance" to my room? I've emailed Ceclilia and I'm waiting for a response. So far I feel like this hotel has nickeled and dimed me for everything!

We are getting married June 7th on the beach. It will be very simple, just us and two other people. We opted for the free ceremony (symbolic). We are using Alex from Juan Navarro as we liked his pictures best of all from that team. We booked for 2 hrs. I still can't get over the prices of everything. I think I will retire and move to that area as a professional photographer. We are bringing an iphone with music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. I've looked over this forum for a few months and feel pretty confident it will go smoothly.

 

We'll be there June 4th through the 11th. Staying in a Ocean Front preferred. We've been to Riu Palace in Playa last year and loved it so we are pretty sure Secrets will be awesome.

I have a question for those of you that rented the speakers and sound system for your ceremony and/or reception. Who managed/played the music? Does someone at the resort handle playing the music (technician, WC, etc.) or will we need to assign that task to a family member or friend? We are going to use our ipod.

Hey, I think concerning who manages/plays music, it was probably wayyyy back in the thread where someone mentioned that Cecilia or someone from the wedding team handled that. cheesy.gif I think assigning a person is fine as well but I believe you don't have to.  That's a good question, though, since we are using an ipod as well.

We did the complimentary photo shoot with Adventure Photo offered on-site and it was sooo worth it.  We got some great pics of us together, and they're pretty much the only ones we have that aren't goofy holding your arm out pictures or of us individually.  Of course, there's no obligation if you don't like them and we liked that you can buy as few or as many as you want.

Hola everyone!!

 

I just had my wedding at Secrets Maroma this week and it AMAZING!!!!!  It was just perfect.  Better than anything my husband and I (and the guests!) could have ever hoped for!  Everyone was blown away by the resort and left so happy.  A lot of guests even stayed up on the beach on the last night so they could watch the sunrise before they had to left this paradise. :)

 

I will post pictures and video soon. 

 

Secrets is the perfect place to get married!!  You will all love it!  Hooray for all Secrets Maroma brides and bride-to-be's! :)

Hi Maromabride,

 

There's a technician who will play the music for you during the ceremony.  The wedding coordinator Cecilia communicates with the technician using a walkie talkie so the timing of the music is perfect.  There's nothing to worry about. :)

 

We had a DJ for the dinner reception and he controlled all the music fantastically, including playing the few songs that we had given to him beforehand as "must plays".

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
