    I will be having my cocktail hour at X-lounge and I am also getting married at 6.

    MSG I have bridesmaids with different bodies so what I did was pick out 5 different dresses at Davids Bridal (I only have 4 bm) so that they could choose what they wanted to wear. My suggestion would be to have them all wear the same material that way they can at least look cohesive. For example maybe they all wear silk gowns or cotton.

      I'm not sure, I'm thinking we will need an hour for photos...so actually i would like the cocktail hour to start right after the ceremony so my guests will be entertained...What are you doing? Are you taking photos after the ceremony or waiting till next day?

          Hey what projects are you working on... I am trying to send out invites by the end of next week. I know I know its really sad that I am just now getting them in the mail, but I sent out STD in October and I already have an idea who will be attending and who will not.

          I also keep debating on where I would like to marry on the beach or in the gazebo. Anyone else confused

            I felt the same way, but I think a big factor is many guests you have. I'm not sure exactly how many people the gazebo can hold, but it looks pretty small. It's gorgeous, however I also LOVE the idea of getting married on the beach and walking barefoot. So beach wedding for me!

              thope,

              I was just reading about this on another thread! I read what a few other girls had to say and my FI and I have decided to take pictures before the ceremony. I never thought I would want to do it that way, but it makes the most sense to us. For a few reasons:

              1.I would love to join my guests during the cocktail hour and I don't want to have to pull people away from it either.

              2. With the sunset wedding most likely it wouldn't be bright enough for pictures.

              3. I want to capture my FI and my reaction to eachother in an intimate setting.

              4. Also all nerves are out the window when it comes time for the ceremony.

                Hello, Im planning my wedding at this resort as well. Originally I wanted to have my wedding at the Secrets Maroma but the date I wanted its already taken. Anyway, I have not been to EPM but I read a lot of reviews and I think its going to be good. I just wanted to know how was your experience when planning your wedding with them, any suggestions? Thanks.

                    I like the idea of the gazebo (I think the max is 42 people) but the beach would be fun too. I like that it is off to the side of the resort so that there aren't people walking around during your ceremony.

                      So I know I have asked this question before... but have any of you been to EPM and other resorts in Cancun for a basis of comparison. I thought EPM was beautiful when we were there but I am wondering how it compares to other Cancun resorts. Any thoughts?
