    Hi Girls! I totally agree with you Nicole! We were thinking about having an at home reception because everyone was pushing us to have one. We are not into those type of weddings either, So we decided to invite everyone to SMB. We have about 16 people coming so far. There are others who still say they might go. But prices keep going up as we get closer to May, so I'm not sure if they will go now.

     

    Sillygirl702, We signed up for the free wedding package also because we thought it would only be us two. But now that more people are coming, we are thinking about upgrading to the next package. We really didn't think anyone would go to our wedding at SMB but everyone is really excited about it. You would be surprised how many people would go. I guess it's a good excuse to take a vacation and go to a wedding.

        Hi!  I'm getting married at Secrets in September 2012.  Does anyone have any pictures from the photographer included in the package?  Do you know who it is?  Our guest list jumped so my original hope of having an outside photographer may not come to fruition.  Any input is welcome!

          Hi all,

           

          I am getting married at SMB on 16 May this year!! Only four months away so it's starting to get so close now! We are having around 20 people including us, who are all coming from the UK.

           

          I'm not really sure yet whether to take the basic package and just add a few things on or to upgrade my package. I quite like the idea of the cocktail hour on the beach, but not sure if we need a separate 'reception' as such or just an area in one of the restaurants. It will probably come down to budget in the end! What is everyone else doing? Does anyone have any advice?

           

          Thanks,

           

          Michelle

            Hi Michelle! I'm getting married May 12! We will be leaving on your wedding day though. I still can't believe we only have 4 more months! It's going by so fast. When are you arriving at Secrets?

             

            We are having the exact same hard decision as you. We originally booked the free wedding package, but now we kind of want all of us to eat dinner together. We also do not want a "reception", just a simple dinner with all 16 of us.  I actually just emailed Cecilia about our options.

             

            Our original plan was to just have the ceremony, toast and eat cake, take pictures, allow people to eat where ever they want, and then just meet up after dinner at one of the bars or the club. I'm not sure if they can reserve an area at one of the restaurants for all of us to eat together. Does anyone know, or has done this?

              Hi! The photographer that the resort uses is Juan Navarro. Here's his website and some pictures he has taken at SMB. We are using him for our May wedding because we just thought it would be the easiest way to do it. We also like his work. We've contacting him directly a couple times and responded quickly to our questions. I hope this helps!

                  What is everyone doing for their hair and makeup?  Im doing the secrets ultimate package which includes hair and makeup, but i've read a lot of mixed reviews.  I was thinking of using Adrian from the Styling trio.

                    I am going to have my hair and make up done at the hotel in the spa. I have also read mixed reviews, but I don't think I will be able to fit anymore extras into our wedding.
