Hi Ladies-

 

My FI and I are looking into having our wedding at EPM next December. Can anyone share what venues they've chosen for the reception? I am looking for an open-air venue (preferably one with a roof in case of bad weather and to make the dinner feel more intimate). We are hoping to have around 70 guests so I need a space that will accommodate tables plus a dance area. Anyone that has been to EPM: does the resort have anything like this? I looked at the resort map and from what I've seen, The Lobster House might fit this criteria. Any advice would help! Thanks!

Hi all! :-)

 

Does anyone have a copy of the resorts map?  I know there is one online, but I was trying to find a printable one to include in the welcome bags.  I have found some reallllllly cute stuff on etsy for the welcome bags...so if anyone is looking for ideas, try etsy.com.

 

I just heard back from Nayeli and she referred me to Juan Carlos Lancelotti (his email - jclancelotti@yahoo.es)...have any of you heard of him and/or reached out to him...seen his work? 

 

Also, does anyone have a copy of the catalog that has all the cake, flower etc options?  Nayeli had sent me one back in July but now I can't find it. :-(

 

I know that in the legal requirements that a blood test needs to be done, which I don't mind - but I don't understand why we would need to get a bloodtest if the state we live in and are from doesn't require it. Just curious....

 

I'm excited for all of you brides that are getting married here very shortly and cannot wait to read about your wedding! 

 

85 more days for us! :-)

Something to know....when guests check in, they will receive a little book included with all the bar and restaurant info along with a map of the resort. You can tell them where to meet up with you for different events and all the info is included in the booklet. We used Juan Carlos for an excursion, rehearsal night, spa time with the wedding party, the ENTIRE day of the wedding and a TTD in Isla Mujeres.  Most of it is in our slide show on YouTube if you want to check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFzYYWe7a6k We wanted him (and his team) to just capture the "essence" of the weekend. If you want more formal photos, he does that as well.

The blood testing must be done because that's how they do a legal marriage in Mexico. It is recognized as legal in the states so no other documentation is necessary.

The Mariachi band was awesome! Nayeli probably has pics or info about the Caribbean trio...I think it is calypso-like. It all depends on what you want to highlight...the Caribbean or Mexico. My vote is Mexico! Ole!

Juan Carlos has been absolutely wonderful in answering all of my questions and getting back to me quickly.  I think I've sent him 3 or 4 emails within the past two days and I've gotten an answer back within 2 or 3 hours, each time.

Hey everyone!

Has anyone had their ceremony "live streamed" back to the US?  We are interested in doing this, but not sure if the resort's "WiFi" is good enough. 

 

THanks,

Monica

I wanted to do the same thing. I know when we were considering getting married at El Dorado Royale that was something that was offered at their resort...not sure about EPM though.
