I wanted to let you all know that I just got back from a 12 night stay at EPM for my wedding and honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! No problems at all, it was beyond my expectations.  I had been emailing with Nayeli for the past year or so with my questions then about a month ago Llenny started emailing me and she was the only one who I met with at the resort.  She was perfect and right on track with every single detail.  I will write a more detailed review later this week...just wanted to let all you brides know how to worry about anything!

This is great news and thank you for sharing! Any time I start to freak out about something I will try and remember this email :)

Also, would you mind telling me what your day of timeline was like? When did you start gettign ready etc? Was Lleny there for the majority of your wedding?  Also, did you use your own script for the ceremony or the one the minister already had?  We are using the in house photographer as well so I am glad to know he was so good. I can't wait to see pics and sorry about all the questions!

Don't freak out, everything will be perfect! Here are the answers to your questions:

I got my hair and make up done at the spa along with my bridesmaids.  Christian did my make up and hair and it was perfect.  I am very picky and I could not find one flaw, it was beyond my expectations. 

I had emailed the spa to make appointments for me and my bridal party and they recommended a 1:00 start for a 5:00 wedding and it turned out perfect.  All 4 of us were done by 3 and we went back to my room and got dressed, had some champagne and took pictures with the photographer. Llenny touched base with me earlier in the day then she came to my room around 4 to give us our flowers and she told me she would be back at 4:55 to get me, my father and bridesmaids to escort us to the gazebo. She was right on time then the next time I saw her was at the end of the cocktail hour where she escorted our group to the event terrace where the reception was.  I don't remember seeing her much at the reception (but she might have been there) but we didn't really need her services there because the DJ was in control of the music and flow of the evening (when to cut the cake, speeches etc).

We did not use our own script for the wedding.  Roxanna the minister emailed me the 2 reading they typically use so we ended up using one of them and substituting a reading that we liked better.  

Your wedding will be fantastic! I can't post pictures for some reason so send me your email address and I'll send you some pictures:)

Thanks!

The glasses vary by the style of drink. They are all acrylic outside. Either pilsner, margarita style, champagne, pub style, etc. based on the type of drink ordered. Make sure that you and your guests try the "Icebergs" when you are there....they are delicious! Also they make great mojitos.

Hello Shannon and fellow BDW brides! Congrats on your beautiful wedding! I would just love to see your photos from the onsite photographer at EPM! I'll send you a PM with my email address! I am so excited to announce that my fiancé and I have recently confirmed our wedding at EPM on October 27th, 2013! I've been following this discussion forum for a few weeks and trying to catch up on past posts at the recommendation of my best friend, Lorraine (Koay) Vigliotta. (@Lciz) She raved about how helpful you ladies were on BDW as she prepared for her big day. I'm already experiencing the delayed response time of the wedding coordinator at EPM, so many of the posts on here have been incredibly helpful in answering some of our initial questions. I'm still waiting for Nayeli's email confirming our wedding details. I emailed her confirmation of our room reservation on Monday and still no response in regard to confirming the details of our wedding. Based on the many posts I've read so far, I assume she is VERY busy, so I'm practicing patience. :rolleyes:😊 Regarding the onsite photographer - VIP weddings (?), Shannon would you mind telling me how much you ended up spending on your entire photo package with them? My fiancé and I are trying to budget out everything and planning for a photographer is causing me a great deal of Streisand I'm still a year out! Any information that you ladies have to share on photographers would be much appreciated! One of the most important things to me and my fiancé is taking home amazing photos of our special day. And we really don't want all "posed" photos. We both fell in love with del sol, but just yesterday we learned they will not contract for EPM weddings. We can do a TTD session with them, but not our ceremony. This is so odd to me!!??? I'm sure they are outside our budget any how....but regardless that stinks! Any recommendations on a really professional, quality photographer at a reasonable price would be much appreciated! I'm aware that EPM charges a $500 fee for outside photographers, however I guess it all depends on the costs of the EPM photographer vs. the outside photographer rate - perhaps the $500 fee is worth it?? Thanks in advance for any information/photos that you're willing to share! I'm excited to chat with you gals! -Ali

Congrats on choosing EPM! I am getting married 3/15/13. We are using Adrian Herrea for or photographer. He seems to do good work, but not terribly expensive. I was like you and originally wanted Del Sol. Their photography plays a huge part in why I choose excellence, but Adrian seems to have good work. Welcome to the forum!

Hey Ladies,

 

We are getting close, November 23, 2012!  It does take N awhile to get back to us, but she has answered all of our questions, she sent us an invoice like sheet with all of our choices and pricing on it, which is very reassuring.  I did have some additional questions for you ladies:

 

Do we need to tip the salon?

For those that brought their own sound system, we are using a Bose, did you use a microphone if so which one or how did you make announcements, speeches, etc?

As of now, we are doing our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, show, and then disco.  Did anyone else do the disco, I was wondering if it was fun or if it is lame?

I feel like we are not doing much in terms of decorations for the spice terrace, would you recommend anything?

 

I think most of the major things of taken care, I just want to make sure our guests are going to have a good time!

 

Thank You,

Ashley
