    We are getting married Nov 7, 2013 and will be there from Nov 3 - 17. We have some people staying for 7 days, others for 10 and a few for two weeks. We booked through WestJet vacations.

      Oilersbride- that will be nice that you will have an extra week for just you and your hubby. We had thought about staying an extra week but decided we will go somewhere in the spring. We are legally getting married on 11/12/13 as well lol I thought it would be an easy date for hubby to remember lol. Shera Richer- Congrats to you as well :-) we are getting married in November not April :-) our travel agent had recommended November and told us we would have more options for ceremony dates ect, it turns out our travel agent didn't realize there are 2 Mexican holidays the week we are there so we didn't really have a choice on the date. We are flying out of Vancouver, with some guests flying from Edmonton. We went with a package thru Transat and then did another $2000 in upgrades with the resort. Did you just book with the resort? Idmoss- Did you get your wedding package thru westjet or just your flights and hotel? Also. How have you found dealing with the wedding coordinator down there?

        jypsejenny - We booked our flight and hotel packages through westjet and the wedding package with the resort. So far the wedding coordinators have been very responsive for me and I have had no problems. Sometimes the communication via email is a little difficult but I just have to extra clear and hope for no surprises. Our wedding coordinator is Alma. How have you found the WC?

              Bettyuff- Where are you flying from? We took a package from Transat and then did some upgrades so we can have a semi-private reception on the beach. With our Transat package we wouldn't have had a head table or a place to have our first dance. We arrive on the 17th and leave on the 24th :-)

                My parents are actually going to be staying with us the second week. we are legally getting married here September 29 (just confirmed the date yesterday actually) with a little ceremony for my fiance's grandma to attend since she can not travel. we figured the second week would be helpful to have us actually be able to relax without all the extra wedding stuff and visiting with the guests on the first week. Breaking it up would have been good too - We love to travel!! hope you are taking a few days off when you get back home to relax too!

                  Our wedding coordinator is through the resort directly - we have been bounced around to three people - which is kind of annoying! BUT we have gotten immediate responses to our emailed questions. we dealt with Yeniza initially and then fernanda seemed to take over and now we officially have Marcela who is our confirmed coordinator for the day itself and the final planning. We were able to skype with fernanda and i totally recommend doing that. her mic and camera were broken the day we did it so we just had a chat session but it was good because now we have all the information and answers to our questions in writing vs. oh well we discussed that over the phone/skype but nothing to prove it.

                    We had Marcela, I think they have a few 'assistant' coordinators answer queries etched until about 2 months before then you get your coordinator who you meet with and is there with you all day. Marcela is amazing, so lovely & friendly and really looked after us - you are in good hands!
