    It all depends on what your are looking for......according to the link, check it out, it says the sun will set at 6:29. So you will be getting married and exchanging vows when the sun is setting. That will be beautiful!!! Very pretty! The Ceremony only lasts about 20-30 mins.


    You can always do photos before! My Photographer recommended we get married at 3. Just so we can get pictures and then enjoy the whole evening with our guests! The sun sets for us around 5:05.


    Good luck!! :-)

      Hi !! I’m getting married on December 3ed also(as are two more)! We booked the ultimate and have 40 guests. They haven’t been very good about communication with me however my impression is that they are very busy and do this stuff all the time. They seem to have it all figured out and no need to stress in anyway because it seems that the only variable for the wedding is the guests and the bride and groom. I think they are able to put the wedding together very quickly. I have even spoken with brides that didn’t even do any planning until they arrived at the resort and they said it all turned out beautifully!

        I can't believe Ana is gone!! I am so worried that my date and wedding is not going to be confirmed. Anyone else having any luck connecting with the new coordinator?

          Don't stress out about Ana being gone - I've heard from Yazmin and Gabriela twice since Ana left - just make sure you've kept your emails from Ana so you can bring them to Mexico with you.  I know it's hard, but just be patient, they're focusing on brides whose weddings are right around the corner.

            I am planning just purchasing the whole disc as well and have them print out the 50 free pics in the album and you also get a 30 minute edited dvd of the ceromny which is really nice. I would love to know what the actually price is for the whole disc as well...and does anyone know if they only accept cash or can you add this into your wedding invoice?

              Hmmm. The time and date clock says it sets around 6:30 so everything will be at sunset..Thanks for the idea to do pictures before.

                Hey Cathyandchin - will you please email me a copy of your script?


                Hey Leanne!


                --We did a symbolic ceremony.  We didn't want to deal with the legalities and blood work.  I put together my script from others' on the forum and googling things.  I can send you a copy if you're interested.

                --We bought our sand ceremony frame from amazon.  It's the umbra ether frame in espresso and we caulked the glass panes.  The glass bottles with the sand were about a dollar a piece from Michael's. We didn't get these back :(

                --I'm not sure if we had the equipment for a certain amount of time, he just told us he had to pack up and go at that time.  I've heard that you can keep partying until 11 or 1130.  We were so hot and tired that it didn't matter.  Some of us went to Desires afterwards.

                --No rehearsal.  We didn't have a bridal party so it just didn't seem like a priority for us.  In hindsight, I should've told my dad what to say.  But it's better than he fumbled!!


                Let me know if I can answer any more questions.

                  Has anyone found a outing or cruise that could be done the night of a wedding or the night before the wedding for a large group?

                    Does anyone know the measurements for the huppa thingy? I am going to bring my own material to use on it. Thanks!

                      Hey gals!


                      I'm getting married next July at DRC and am wondering if any girls changed into shorter dresses at their receptions? Just thinking it may be too hot to be dancing in my long dress. What do you all think?
