Hi everyone! I'm getting married in March 2013 - YAY! Is anyone else experiencing the anxiety of Nayeli not responding to emails? I actually call her now (sucks for my cell phone rates) but it's the only way to get an answer. Did anyone else experience this? Also, did anyone have a rehearsal dinner? Appreciate any insight to possibly ease my worries. Best, Kim

congrats on ur upcoming wedding. we did have a rehersal dinner, they had a carribean themed night on the beach. which was reservation only. it was really cool, they only had maybe a dozen tables, buffet, bar, and a band. you can also do it normally in any restaurant that you want.
we have all had troubles getting hold of nayeli. when we were supposed to meet with her, she sent alex another coordinator and he was awesome to work with and soo nice. see if you can get a hold of him.
let me know if you

We had a ton of spa "things" going on and they are fantastic there! Miguel is just plain wonderful! He will probably be the one coordinating everything for you depending on what you want to do. The day of the wedding, our ceremony started at 5:30, but people got there at 5. I had 5 bridesmaids, my Mother and myself all doing hair (and make-up for me). And my fiance/husband decided to get a last minute trim. We had 3 of the girls and Frank go in at noon, I went at 1pm and my Mom and the other 2 bridesmaids come in at 1:30/2. This worked out perfect because we were able to get back to the room with plenty of time for pics, order some room service and wrap up anything else last minute. I originally had things scheduled for 2 and 3, and once I spoke with Miguel, he recommended to make it earlier...thank god! We would not have made it had we not started at noon.
Start early and get things booked. They can always change times, add people, move things around, etc. We started the spa planning part about 4-5 months out. You can go on to the resort website and there is a part there where you can get to and email the spa. They respond VERY quickly....the best response I've gotten...usually within a day, sometimes that day!

Lynn is SPOT ON with this type of communication with Nayeli. You will be able to narrow down each detail and it makes it sooooo much easier for her and you! You may not hear from her for a week or 2, but you'll have more questions answered in each email. Just make sure to get price quotes along the way for the details you are thinking of doing or deciding on being that rates may go up or there may be a different vendor they're working with by the time your wedding day is here. Nayeli is great and will honor what you've already discussed and decided on.

My wedding is in May and I'm trying to make most of my decisions now (menu, flowers, decorations, etc.) I'll send her an email with ALL my questions and she answers them all in a different color. If I have additional questions, I'll respond in yet a different color. We keep going until all those questions are answered. When I have a bunch more I'll send her another and we'll start all over. Because I still have plenty of time, it doesn't bother me when she takes a while to respond since I know she's the coordinator for 3 properties there and sometimes has 30 weddings in a week that she's handling! I would much rather her give the current brides the extra attention they deserve and get to me as she can. I know when it's my turn I want her undivided attention! LOL
I have used Skype to call her (either from my laptop or my cell phone) when I've needed to reach her right away and the rate was better than what I got on my cell phone (typically it was only $.10/minute) and I don't need to talk to her long so the calls are never that expensive.
I'm planning to have a rehearsal dinner. Depending on how many people you're expecting to have, she can set you up in one of the restaurants (semi-private) for no charge or if you want a private event, she can do that for $22 per person. We don't want to pay for another "wedding reception" so we're going with semi-private.
Hope this helps!

We did some shopping down there for favors. We really wanted to have some authentic things for them in their OOT bags and for the tables. We scouted out the Market in the Hotel Zone and Mercado 28 when we were down there 9 months before the wedding, and went back in "negiotiation" mode the week before the wedding. We found these cool hand painted Margarita glasses that we used for favors along with maracas. Everyone loved them and they survived the trip home. We also had little bottles of tequila along with our favorite recipes, Mexican chocolate and a colorful Mexican blanket that we bought down there for the oot bag (along with the totes for everyone not in the wedding party-they had "special" ones) Things we brought down with us for the oot bags were the sunscreen, aloe, lip balm, 5 hour energy, Emergen-C, Tums, ibuprofen, flip flop bottle opener, and Starbucks mints. (and the backpacks and totes for the wedding party) We had 9 suitcases including our 2 carry on's each- and did have to pay some overweight charges for a couple of the 5 we checked. About 2 and a half of the suitcases were "stuff" for the wedding. Looking back, I am SOOOO glad we bought as much as we did while we were down there. We would have paid just as much for shipping as we did for the checked baggage.
