I have a question for any previous brides - we're going for the Presidentual package, but I wondered what is included in the ceremony set up, the brochure says 'romantic decoration' so does that include all the hanging flowers etc that are on the gazebo, and how about colour ribbons etc on the gabezo do you know if you have to pay any extras with this package?

 

Also as I understand it bridesmaids bouquets aren't included so I know we'll need to pay extra for these, but with regards to the brides bouquet can you have any flowers, or do they have set bouquets and you have to pay extra for certain flowers?

 

Thanks!

 

For flowers there is a catalogue that explains it, the standard offering for Pres. package is really nice, stay within if you can because any of the upgraded "exotic' choices are ridiculous.  The flowers were just find from the standard so that's what we went with. If you look at my review, the only upgrades we purchased for the actual ceremony set-up was: The coral chair bows, The White runner and two bags of roses sprinkled on top of the runner. (*the mason jars, programs and fans were our own).  So, pretty sweet setup with the Pres package.  I think the extras we got came out to about $250 or something?

Hi Mitchieline,

 

It depends which package you go for, they have 4 options depending on what you want included -

There is a free ceremony (but you have to pay $6,500 pesos for legal fees if you want legal)

Silver package - £26,000 pesos (about $2,000 USD)

Gold package - $40,000 pesos ($3,700)

Platinum package - $61,000 pesos ($4,800)

Presidentual package - $67,000 pesos ($5,300)

 

I can email you the package brochure if you let me have your email address otherwise I think you can get the info on the website.

 

I believe the resort photographer is Foto Caribbean - http://www.fotocaribbean.com.mx/

I have read mixed reviews about them!

Hi everyone,

 

My fiance and I are down to 2 resorts for our end of March/beginning of April 2014 wedding.  I'm really loving all the reviews and tips that everyone is giving for this resort and is slowing starting to inch ahead of everything else!

If anyone has any of the catalogues (even if its from a year or two ago) it would greatly appreciated!   We are hoping to book the presidential package, but we are going over Manitoba spring break so hopefully it (the presidential suite) will still be available by the time we book it!

 

Thank you!

Janelle

Hi Janelle,

 

I don't think I can attach on here but Fernanda (who I think has taken over from Yeni as wedding coordinator) just sent me some catalogues for the Presendial package a couple of days ago which I can send you if you let me know your email address

Gorgeous wedding! Your pictures were amazing! All the details turned out beautifully! 

 

I actually used your antiqued treasure chest idea - thank you! I will have to send you pictures when I get a chance. 

 

Just a quick question - I was reading through your review and noticed that you didn't finish your story about the presidential suite. You ended off talking about how it was a bit of a problem to get the presidential suite, but you didn't include what problems you ran into and how you ended up getting the presidential suite? 

 

Thanks for taking the time to write out your review - it's very helpful!

We heard back from the resort on the same day when we sent our deposits - we didn't have any problems at all with the deposit.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
