    hey! when do you get in for your wedding - mine is 10/30 and will be at the resort until Tuesday the 2nd and then we're going to Zoetry for the rest of the week :)

     

    I'm shipping my welcome bags, place cards, yammaka's and anything else i can think of in a couple weeks to give it enough time to get there just in case.

    I hope nothing happens to it..............should be ok but you never know - we shall see

    Question: are any of you shipping your welcome bags? Thought we would be able to check them as luggage, but we need to ship 40 bags.

    Getting married on November 6, 35 rooms booked :)

      Hi ya - we arrive on November 3. Sad! I sent the resort a question on shipping. See below :)

      Shipping: I would like to ship some materials to the hotel. Will you send me instructions? Should I use UPS or FedEx? I recommend you to use FedEx , you can send the materials to Cecilia Reyes’ attention . the hotel address is :

      Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun
      Carretera Federal 307. Chetumal-Cancºn Km. 306.5
      Solidaridad, Q. Roo. M©xico. 77710

      What time is your wedding? We're booked for 3p, but I'm worried it will be too hot.

        thanks!!! aww, you will miss my wedding and I will miss yours :( 

         

        Our wedding is at 6:00pm - we have to get married after the sunset's bc we are Jewish and having it on a Saturday night. We are telling everyone though to be there for 5:45pm and will start the processional at 6:10. Sunset is exactly 6:14pm so that gives us a nice setting too as we walk down the aisle

          Do any of you know how much it would cost to extend our reception beyond the standard 3 hours?  How does Secrets charge for this?

           

          I have the Secrets Ultimate Wedding Package, and our current reception time is 6:30 - 9:30 pm, but we think it ends too early. :P

           

          Thanks!!!

          Hey there Jenny:

           

          When we got married in '09 they didn't "extend" the reception but you can take your whole group and go to the "disco" club to continue dancing and drinking if that's what you have in mind.

              I asked Cecilia about extending our reception time, and she gave me the following quote:

              "...the package include 3 hrs service, in this case from  6:00  to 9 :00 pm, in case you want to add additional time the cost is $10 usd +11% tax +15% service per person per hr. We can do outside events until 11:00 pm."

               

              We were also using the sound system (for Ipod), which she said would be an additional $180/hr +tax.

               

              We decided not to increase the time of our reception, and I'm actually really glad we didn't.  My groom and I were so exhausted by 900pm, that we went to the lobby for one more drink with all of our guests, and then retired to our room.  You always have the option of using the other bars or the disco to extend your party with your guests, or whoever wants to stay out.  My groom and I went to bed, as did the parents, but some of our guests stayed out at the disco all night long. 

              The final decision was just that the price it would cost us for an additional hour wasn't worth it to me.  Just didn't make sense when the other bars were available for free.

                Also - another note to that..  Unfortunately you can't decide the night of that you want to extend your reception, we had to decide 2 days prior so she could make sure there was sufficient staffing, so that definitely played a part in my decision as well.

                  Hi everyone,

                   

                  I am planning my wedding in SMB in May 2011.

                   

                  It will just be the 2 of us and we will have a AHR after.  

                   

                  We live in Ireland and have just booked 2 weeks in the resort and have requested 19 May as our wedding date.  We are in the very early stages of organising and have just received a form from SMB which is already confusing us!!

                   

                  Quite surprised at the info they ask for - salaries / qualifications / what we plan to do with our assets after we are married / parents occupations.... did you all have to give this info?....

                   

                  Really appreciate your replies!!
