Hi Massagegirl...

 

I'm getting married here April 30th, 2010. I've made a site visit and met with Cecilia already back in September. The resort is beautiful. You won't be disappointed. July will be very hot though. We decided to have our ceremony at the poolside gazebo versus on the beach. Let me know if you have any questions for me :)

I am getting married here on July 9, 2010. It has really good reviews on tripadvisor.com. I like it because it is adults only. I have heard good things but never been to this resort. I went to Sandos Beach Resort in Playa del Carmen last August - which was also really nice (not adults only though). It will be hot - Mexico in the summer - but bearable I think. My FH and I are both teachers so the summer is the most logical time to get married since we both have off. (We were going to do November but then we would have to take at least a week off in the middle fo the year - not worth it)

 

I have read some good reviews on here - search the forums. (That is how I found this thread actually - I wanted to see what else people had posted about SMB)

 

Good luck!

I am getting married at Secrets Maroma June 10, 2010. We are doing our site visit Feb 3rd-5th. We are really unsure about where to do the reception because of the heat and humidity during the summer. Any suggestions would be helpful. We currently have 33 people booked. We want someplace that feels intimate so everyone feels comfortable and dances all night long! ALL suggestions are much appreciated!

We are having our reception at the poolside gazebo area. I'm thinking that around dinner time, most people have vacated the pool area to get ready for dinner at the restaurants, so I'm thinking that would be pretty private and still be outdoors. We also won't have to move all of the music equipment set-up from our ceremony, since we are having that at the poolside gazebo also.

Hi! I am also getting married there this summer and can not decide where to have the reception at. What did you think?

We decided to use the spa courtyard because it is more private and a good size for the number of people we are having. We are having 33 so far. Also, you get to walk in over a bridge that is over the spa fountain area. Very cute and we are also getting the DJ with the light and sound system and I think it will look really awesome against the stone walls back there.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
