    Hi All!

    I'm getting married on May 30th at the Casa Magna Marriott in Cancun.... 67 people are confirmed to attend. Can't wait!

    Any other Casa Magna/JW Marriott brides out there?

        Hi Paula,

        I'm not the bride (I'm the big sis of the bride that got stuck doing all the planning :), but I am planning my sisters wedding for May 28th, 2009 at the Casa Magna. Where did you decide to do your reception? That's what has me stumped at this point. I can't decide if we should do it in the carribbean fountain area, which is nice b/c it's shaded but still open, or to do it in the garden area. We don't have a huge group going (only 25), so I don't want to use a huge space. Did you do a site visit? Glad to hear that someone else choose the Casa Magna too; it looks beautiful. Sounds like you may be done with your planning, so if you have any suggestions, I'll take what I can get :)

                Hi Kim,

                Oh how I wish I was almost done with planning! :) We actually just got our guest count - 75 people - so now that I know that, I feel like it's full speed ahead!

                As far as the reception location, we did not do a site visit, so everything I'm doing is based on recommendations/ photos.

                We're having the cocktail hour in the Pool Garden, and then the dinner is in the ballroom. At first I was hesitant to have the reception indoors, but then, after giving it more thought, I figured that not only is the cocktail hour outside, but our church is sort of outside-ish (a chapel at another resort), and the rehearsal dinner will be on the beach, so I was okay with having an event indoors. Plus, the outdoor events have to have the music end by 10pm, and i wanted to party to go later into the evening than that (our ceremony isn't until 4pm...though I'm considering pushing it back to get more of a sunset view during the coctkail hour).

                Oh and also, to see pics, I found this very helpful...it's photos from previous weddings at the marriott....

                Best of luck with your planning! Is your sister having a DJ or a band? We're having a DJ, but I'm a little nervous b/c I have no idea what to expect. Keeping my fingers crossed!

                Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions!
