SO true! Just keep reading this forum (daily if you can because otherwise you get WAY behind). I have had SO many questions answered on here. It has been a savior to have this. I have been planning for a few months so if you have any specific questions, I might be able to help.
Good luck with all the planning!

So I didn't even see her until I walked down the aisle. It was ok, but I would have liked to have met her first. I put together our script but she also had a script that we could have used if I prefered. Do you know who your officiant is? If it is Rosa, I have her script and can probably share it with you.
Can you please send me the script... jdhallwedding@hotmail.com

Are all of the officiants women?
I too, put together our own script and I'd like to get it to the officiant a week before we get down there.
When did you know who your officiant would be?
Did you have some type of rehearsal with Ana since you didn't see the officiant until THE moment?

HAHA that is too funny! i didn't even realize it.....Nah not having anything back here, we have about 100 people going, 75 already booked. so that is enough for us! Are you having something back here?? I know a lot of people who that, so it it is very common.

I didn't think the $393 was that bad for 3 nights considering it includes your food and drinks......just because we have a very big drinking crowd so they will drink about $300 dollars worth a day.....so this is a major deal for them!!! A lot of them are bartenders.....so this is a treat to them and the staff is going to love this crowd cause they are major tippers

Also, what did you past brides think of the officiant? I'm worried about a really strong accent. Also, for my faith, I'm more comfortable with a male officiant - just my image of my wedding day, I guess. Anyone know if there is a male officiant available?

Thanks!

We had a guy marry us there. He was great! There was a definite accent though but it just made getting married in Mexico the real thing. We still kid to each other about how he said "love" he kept pronoucing it "Lub". LOL We will never forget this.

Hi!

 

We are planning a wedding date of June 4 2011 at the Dreams Riviera Cancun. I've emailed a request about a week ago to the wedding coordinator for availability but have not yet received a response. I'm curious from other brides (or brides to be) whether their experiences with the WCs were positive and if they were reliable with communication. I know the wedding is a whiles away, but I'd like to get the location confirmed.

 

Thanks!

Jen

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
