    Hi eveyone, I'm getting married at home and having a symbolic ceremony in Secrets Maroma.  Has anyone had a symbolic wedding ceremony at Secrets Maroma?  If so, can you tell me how it is? I wouldn't want our guests to know the difference.

      Hi CriCri.  We are having a symbolic wedding as well.  I think the whole process is the same - legal or symbolic.  It is just not legalized in a court of law is all.  We are getting it legalized as home as well.  If anyone else knows different, please let us know.

        Dear Annie

        I have noticed that the duration of hte ceremoby it's only 12 minutes and I would like extend a little bit it.

        Do you know what's the sand ceremony and how it's celebrated?

        Do you know if during the symbolic ceremony there will be a document signed?

          Hi CriCri.  We didn't ask about the sand ceremony since we are not doing that.  I would ask your WC for details on that.  And I'm pretty sure there is no document signing for the symbolic ceremony.

            Hi KCDawn, I considered the trio, so many things I am still unsure of.  The trio is different than Mariachis right? I thought I wanted cocktail hour on the beach right were we are married after, but it may also make sense to send them pool side where the reception would be too.  What made you chose beach side?  Where did you find those pictures/posts of cocktail hour?  Will you be taking pics during cocktail hour?

              Thanks for the info... gusts know that the ceremony will be on the beach so I guess... they may be prepared. Where is your reception?

I've verbally told some guests who asked about how to dress as well. I think barefoot or flip flops will be fine for the ceremony and cocktail hour.

                Hi, do you think you could forward those music samples along to me?  Wedding in July.  Just so I don't have to bother Funydoll again:)

                I of course can ask her myself, but my wedding is several months away, and she seems to take her time to respond... which is totally fine, but would love to hear the options now if possible!!

                 

                Thanks!

Has anyone put there own menu together? I know Valeria said I can customize from all 3 menus but some things sound so weird like turkey over apples?? That sounds like food for an 8 yr old! haha HELP

                    Ladies you have all been so helpful so far, but I need as many opinions on this as possible on this next question.  I  suddenly feel so unprepared.  Wedding is around the corner all of a sudden in July.  I am thinking of guest activities...  I was thinking welcome sunset cruise, probably the night guests arrive? Saturday,  rehearsal dinner/bonfire not sure how that one will be (day before wedding Tuesday) and then fairwell brunch Friday just before we leave? 

                     

                    Does this sound like too many group activities for one week?  I read in a destinations wedding magazine that you should plan 2 activities, but be careful not to overdo it for the week that some guests might feel overwhelmed.

                     

                    What do you ladies think about these ideas.  Feel free to be honest, as if you were a guest... many of our guests plan on being there Saturday-Saturday and the wedding is  wednesday.

                      If you look at the Secrets Wedding Guide (the pdf file on their website) you can see all the music options.  They have listed a Mexican/Mariachi Trio which is what is included in the Ultimate Package and what we are having.  They also have a full Mariachi band which I'm assuming is a bigger group with more instruments.  We chose the beach for the cocktail hour because we are having our ceremony and reception at the gazebo.  We thought it would be a nice change of scenery and it would feel like a separate event and not just an extended part of the reception.  Also we are doing a group picture with all of our guests on the beach in the time between the ceremony and cocktail hour.  It seemed to make sense to guide everyone to the beach for pictures then keep them there for the cocktail hour.  Of course, the pictures made it look like fun too!  I found them just by poking around on line and on this site.  Here is one place I saw some pictures of a beach cocktail hour with the mexican trio: 



                      Hi KCDawn, I considered the trio, so many things I am still unsure of.  The trio is different than Mariachis right?
