    I know a few people might end up wanting to stay longer...so I decided stay at DRC up until night after the wedding, but will go to a Secrets resort to avoid everyone, even the kids for at least a few days

Should I have the TA eliminate the 7 night option all together? The Dude and I will be there for 10 nights and we will certainly want some time to ourselves.

    I didn't really think anyone would request to book 7 nights. i assumed guests would know that it's polite to stay 2 days after the wedding tops....but alas, someone has asked to book a 7 night trip. I guess I should take it as a compliment, huh? ;) I mean, on the other hand, I am asking people to travel to Mexico FOR ME (and the dude), so I shouldn't put a limit on their stay if they want to make it a vacation....hmmmmmm.

    is anyone else thinking about things like this?

      Does anyone know if the TA from the USA book hotel rooms and flights seperately or do they offer packages for the guest?

        Depending on whether you are planning on trying to acquire group discounts through group booking or individual booking, both options are available when you have a travel agent. A good travel agent should be able to provide you with pros and cons of each option!.

          Hello.  I’m new to the thread …I would love some help with the planning. I’ve booked my wedding for April 19th 2013, so excited! J

          • What will the weather be like in April?

          The ceremony & cocktail hour is going to be on beach.

          • Does the beach hoopa and white drapes come with the Ultimate Wedding Package? Or do you have extra?

          The reception will be on the pool terrace.

          We’re having a small wedding, 15-20 people. I’m from England, so a lot of my family and friends can’t come.

          • Is anyone having a small wedding? What are you doing for your reception? I’m not sure if it’s worth the money getting a DJ and dance floor, or we could just go to one of the bars at the hotel … all ideas and suggestion welcome J

            None of my guests will be staying at the DRC. Does anyone know how much taxis will be from Cancun & Play del Carmen?

              Hey Lindsey

               

              I am also doing starfish. I found some perfect royal blue ones that I'm going to spray with glitter paint.....Another bride on here did the same, she didn't say they were held up at customs though.  Maybe because they were painted.....I'lll ask her.  GREAT QUESTIONS THOUGH!!

              Fiance and I decided not to ship anything, after all of your advice.  I'm now trying to figure out how many suitcases we will need.  5.5 months to go!!  I am so excited.  :)
