    I wanted to write this review because when I was looking I couldnt find any reviews on here. My daughter was married April 12 2010 at 11:00 am. The weather was perfect. With the ocean breeze we weren't even hot. Afterwards she worse a white swim suit and veil in the pool. We partied it up all day then had a private dinner for 16 that night. WONDERFUL. We picked Secrets Capri for my daughters wedding because of two things. The two wedding planners Kristee and Martina's emails and the price. Some resorts seemed grouchy or would take days and days to answer questions. These two were so cheerful, positive and reassuring to my many many questions. They just sound like they love their job and are happy to help you. Kristee was on vacation when we got there, but Martina did a beautiful job. She even did a couple of extra touches that I didnt ask for...so nice. The ceremony site wasnt private but it was really pretty and we were so happy with it. We had an elderly guy in a speedo stand in our way of photos for awhile, but all of that was just funny. My other daughter sang as her sister came down the aisle and it was so beautiful. Everyone cried LOL. Our pics had some flaws, some had this green fence tarp in the background. I'm thinking the guy knew that we were getting the basic package and just snapped some up. I thought a lot of mine looked about as good. My daughter is happy with them so I won't complain much. Her bouquet was amazing!!!

    Our private dinner had to be moved indoors because of a rain threat. I was disappointed at first, but it was GREAT. They were SOOO accomodating with 3 or 4 servers for our 16 guests. We had our own bar so no waiting on drinks. The food was delicious. They let us use our own ipod plarer and dance a little. I struggled with paying for a dinner at an all inclusive but the privacy and service was worth it.

    On to the resort. Ive been to numerous all inclusives in Mexico. The food at this one was great. Probably the best food Ive had in Mexico. The service in the restaurants was REALLY slow. You have to adjust your attitude, drink up and deal. Our rooms were really nice, no musty smell. No liquor in the rooms but heck I needed to sober up by the time I hit the room everyday. They do put beer in the frig.

    The wedding was all we dreamed of. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you Martina! ♥

              I will be getting married at Secrets Capri May 10, 2015! Deposit has been placed and I am super excited!

               

              There are a few things that I am changing up, due to attempting to stay away from the typical "resort" wedding look. I will be bringing my own decor, as well as using Secrets "mexican" type decor for the reception.

               

              I have also been racking my brain in regards to selecting a photographer.  There are so many to choose from, so please do your research before locking in any type of deposit with the first one you see.  The one offered at the resort seems very pricey, and I can't really find any photos from whomever my photographer would be.  That makes me iffy.  

               

              I have decided to go with Octavio Montes, whom also seems to be quite the up and coming popular photographer, according to all the results that come up, when you search for his reviews in forums.   I also fell across his work on preownedweddingdresses.com as well.  The photos were the hook-line-sinker as well as his immediate responses with email.  I have not found that in anyone else, seeing that it takes a few days to a week to get any responses.  www.octaviomontes.com is where you can contact him.

               

              I believe your partner, your dress, your photographer are the significant things that will stand out most about your wedding ;) 

               

              If any ladies have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me!!!
