      I paid $150 for the cigar roller which was for one hour during the cocktail hour and included 20 cigars.  My guests really enjoyed it.

        The Caribbean Trio is a steel drum band, right? Does anyone know if it is possible to have them play at the ceremony?

            We are using the Caribbean Trio and I do not think they are a steel drum band ( although that would be awesome) - I think it is the same 3 guys playing more Caribbean songs instead of Mexican Fiesta.  Please correct me if I am wrong anyone who knows different- Thanks!

              We got married on a Friday, and had to arrive on the prior Monday :)

              In order to get married (legal) in Mexico, you have to be there 4 full days prior to the wedding? Meaning, if the wedding is on a Fri, you have to get there the Sunday prior to?

               

              Is this true? Have seen different info on a few different sites and just wanted to confirm with the experts :)

               

              Is this also a requirement if you do a symbolic ceremony in Mexico?

                Thanks much for the clarification.

                 

                I think we envisioned spending more days relaxing after the wedding v.s. 4 days prior to the wedding in Mexico. Definitely gives us something more to think about!

                  Can any of the past brides tell me if you thought the video was worth it? After seeing what some of you are saying about the cocktail party - I'm starting to agree that it's not necessary. I'm thinking of doing the "Love" package instead of the "Ultimate" which does not include the live music or video, and it looks like the smallest video package is $650.

                    The caribbean trio does not use a steel drum unfortunately, but their music is great!

                      Is anyone else concerned about the recent increase in price at the resort? I am not getting married until December 19th, but since it is so close to Christmas I wanted to suggest that my guests book now. Any suggestion?
