      I read through all 92 pages of this thread and I found that some brides weren't happy with their hair or makeup. Also I was thinking I really wanted airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup last about 16 hours. I had this done for my engagement pics and I loved it. Also just from reading other reviews from other hotels it's seems like a mix of other resort spas as well as Secrets. --- I am here: http://maps.google.c...0761,-95.182898

        We're deciding between the Gazebo terrace and the Baracuda terrace for the reception. We're doing the ceremony at the Gazebo. We're expecting 30-40 guests. Any suggestions??

          Hello everyone! We are getting married October 20, 2012!! 

          I am trying to pick a photographer - I am trying to decide between Juan Navarro and Claudia Rodriguez.. any thoughts? 

          Has anyone used the resort DJ? - any thoughts on that?

          Has anyone had their reception on the beach?? I have not seen a lot of people on here talk about a reception on the beach..


          Hope to hear from you ladies soon : )

            My FI and I are almost officially booked! I just need to send Cecelia the cc info for deposit tomorrow. We have our flights and rooms booked now though!


            I really would like to do the airbrush. I haven't looked into the cost of that, or where to do it at. Hmmmm...I just don't know. I went and looked at ideas for centerpieces tonight. I am pretty sure I am going to do my own. Does anyone know if there are any centerpieces for the tables at the cocktail hour that are included? Or do they need to be purchased from the hotel. I was a little confused by that.


            @brideRN- We are looking at using Juan also. I emailed him yesterday. We def need to upgrade our package from what is included though. I looked at his site, and I love his photos. we are trying to figure out which package we would upgrade to.

            We aren't using a DJ though, just the sound equipment.

              @beachbride2013...The styling Trio is who i've been in contact with to maybe do my hair and makeup, they also do air brush makeup.  

              www.stylingtriorivieramaya.com  I'm not sure about the centerpieces for the tables at the cocktail hour, I think they just put candles out..  I love Juan's pictures..and are also going to upgrade his package.  I would ideally like him there a little before the wedding starts to maybe right before the reception ends.  So like 6 hours I guess?

                Hi fellow brides.  We are getting married at SMB May 2012!  Are your guests all staying at the resort?  Or are some guests finding outside accommodations and coming just on the day of the wedding?  From the responses we have been getting, I think everyone is finding outside accommodations.  It makes it hard figuring out which wedding package to get.  Also, we will need to get a day pass for guests not staying at the resort to attend the wedding.  Does anyone have experience with how that works?  Excited, but starting to run into some headaches of a destination wedding. =T

                  Thanks, I usually do my own hair for events like this and I might do that because I will have control of it. I want to do a practice up do but not sure if they do that.

                    Day passes are like $100 a person. Your guests should pay for the day pass if they choose to stay elsewhere.

                      Also keep in mind, 80% of your wedding guests have to be staying at the resort. So if you have 20 guests, 16 have to stay at the resort.
