    @JustynaB, @Kayla88 @meganlocke7

     

    What packages did you choose? I am trying to get a quote for the complimentary with ad-ons for up to 60 people. Thank you in advance!! 

    @Kayla88

    We set up our meeting before we got to the resort but only about a week in advance. We got there on a Wednesday, our meeting was on Thursday and we got married the following Tuesday. I felt it was definitely enough time to set everything up.

     

    @meganlocke7

    My reception was also 3 hours and I wish we had extended it. It definitely flew by and it seemed like it was over too soon. We started at 6 and ended at 9. The party by the pool doesn't start until 10:30 and in retrospect the ideal plan would have been to extend reception by 1 hour leaving 30 minutes for guests to roam/freshen up and then join the hotel party. I didn't use the hotel photographer because their pictures weren't overly impressive. I've also observed them working other weddings and have noticed that they talked to other hotel employees for long periods of time while holding the camera instead of taking pictures of the wedding. 

     

    Good luck to you both!

    I decided to go with the complementary package. I can email you any information would would like.
    I believe from what I read there is a max of 20 people for the complementary package. But like I said I can send you the info with prices and you can decide :)

    Hi Jill, we get married in a month. I sent my package to Maria a week ago and haven't heard back yet. I was going to go with the spa until I read the review a few posts back about it being horrible. I've heard Litzy is good too but I'm guessing there's no guarantee to get her. Going to try my own hair and my daughter is going to do my makeup. We are having lots of practice sessions!

    I am excited, not so much nervous as I was which is weird. I guess my thinking is now if I've forgotten something or something isn't just perfect that there is not too much I can do about it.  Also it a second wedding for both of us. We are only having 12 of us total, so I think that might be another reason why I'm not stressed. We are not doing a big reception, or separate dinner. Just a meal in the a la carte, and then back to wherever the action is for drinks afterwards.  My friend's husband has a nice camera, so he is going to take some pictures for us.  We are doing a beach symbolic ceremony at 4:30.  I have the menus etc. if you need me to email them to you? Just PM your address.

    I'm so excited to hear about your wedding, it sounds exactly like the way I have planned mine :)
    @jill16
    I emailed her a bunch of questions late November and I have still not heard from her, I'm starting to stress/ freak out because my deadline to have some stuff to her was December. Hopefully you hear back from her soon.

    well this is my 4th or 5th wedding coordinator in just 6/7 months so who knows whats going on...lol. frustrating tho cuz I just want simple answers etc... we were looking to do some Mexican wedding cookies with our mini patron bottle favors and maria was supposed to let me know if she found a place that makes them (even tho I know its basically a pecan puff lol)...but little things like confirming times so I can print my itineraries, getting excursion info etc. oh well hopefully she gets back to me soon! does anyone know where to find sparklers for a decent price in cancn/mayan area? im determined to do a sparkler send off at the end of the reception...I know theres a Walmart and Costco...so I may end up calling there...I also read that maybe the "mercados"..party stores might sell them.... let me know if anyone knows more info....

    I hope you hear from here soon. I resent my previous email to her last week and I still didn't get a response. I was so spoiled with same day responses from Daniel.
