November Secrets Maroma Bride!

Recommended Posts

Hi ya - I haven't been on the site in a bit. So welcome!! I'm getting married at Secrets Maroma on November 6. Not sure if you still need any ideas, but let me know. I have all kinds of stuff and I would be happy to help! We also have another forum that's about 65 pages long, but has lots of great info.


When are you getting married?

mhhhh, things for the bag, think on this:

Tequila shoot glasses, chocolates with tequila inside, maybe some nice image of the Guadalupe virgin, typical straw fans (very cheap),

does it help you? :)

tequila filled chocolates are an awesome idea!!!  You think they'd sell those at the airport when we get there. Because I have no idea where I'd find those here in NC.


Cheerleader1975 we're getting married nov 06 of next year!! We're super excited. So I obviously think you have an awesome date.

November 6 - right after the hurricane season : ) 




make sure to tell your guests to buy their airline tickets early! a few of my folks thought they would wait for the prices to fall and they never did! they actually kept climbing! i am working with cheryl wilson at destination weddings and she is amazing!! let me know if you need further info on a travel agent (TA).


decor for ceremony and reception - don't stress over this, i just started to plan two weeks ago. the resort, and Cecilia, definitely prioritize according to wedding date. but my advice to you is to decide on a theme or overall vibe - save pictures, pick flowers, how you want the tables decorated, etc. and then ask Cecilia to price things out for you.


mexican themed bags - if you are going in early, go to playa del carmen and shop in the market. i'm hoping to find some good stuff!


i have prepared favors - beach towels, koozies and wristbands (so the photographer will know who is with the wedding). i attached a photo. let me know if you need suggestions on vendors for logo and items


i have also prepared a welcome bag - fruit snacks, pretzels, pepto bismol, advil, blistex individuals, granola bars, alcohol wipes..ordered from minimus.biz, amazon.com, and oriental trading


shipping will be a HUGE issue - so if you don't want to carry it on or check it with your other luggage (which may cost you) then don't buy it. i bought beach bags and then realized it would cost me an arm and a leg to ship them there and then they were made it China, so i would have to pay extra fees.. ugh!! so i gave them away locally to folks who attended my bridal showers :)


good luck and please reach out if you have any other questions :)

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
