Planning for Secrets Maroma

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I just came across this forum while trying to fill out the Q& A for Cecilia. A few questions:

Does anyone have pictures of the reception on by the pool or garden?

We are having a hard time trying to figure out how many small details we need to plan in advance and have finalized, any advice? i.e. food, music, flowers

What kind of favors are people giving guests?

Has anyone done the bonfire for a "rehersal" dinner?

Is it best to have the house photographer or hire someone from cancun? We heard reviews from both.

 

We are very excited, but feel a little lost with response time from Ceilia and lack of details to know what we are picking out.

 

Thank you everyone! Congrats. We will be in there May 2011.

Hi!  I'm also looking at booking Secrets Maroma for either June or Novermber we're so very excited and still in the early stages. However I found the reviews on this board very helpful. We are going to definitely book an outside photographer after reading some of the reviews. What really sold me was the posts about the quality of pictures and how the best pictures do not get included in your album because the photographer wants to sell you a separate DVD with all the pictures included.

 

We're going to book the ultimate package...again I think and see if we can substitute the PA system for the wedding instead of the photographer and if there's a remaining credit, then apply it towards the DJ. The forums have been a bit inconsistent about whether they allow substitutions but it can't hurt to try.

 

We're also working on the theory that our whole reason for having a DW was so that it would be less stressful. So we're going to wait until a few months out to do most of the small details like flowers, food and music.

 

Anywho, Congrats!!!!  And keep posting any helpful information and I plan to do the same.  If I can track down those reviews again I'll post them here because they were most helpful to me.

Hey,

 

I am also a Secrets Maroma bride (January 2012).  If you check out the Secrets Maroma Brides thread, a lot of your questions will be answered (it helped me a lot with doing the Q & A)! Regarding the contract, it is really open so you don't need all of the details right now...but know that Cecilia does allow substitutions.

Are you using inside vendors for your January wedding? All the reviews talk about outside vendors, but I would like to use the DJ and Photography already there if they are pretty good. Any thoughts?

I'm definitely using an outside photographer. I'm going with Sascha Gluck! We're super excited.

 

Everything I've read about their onsite photographer is that the pictures included in the package are the pictures he choses. And the photographer purposefully does not give you the best photographs because they want to charge additional $$ for you to purchase a CD with all the photos. If you're going to use they're photographer I'd just do a bit more research. Perhaps the onsite photog isn't doing that anymore. I booked Sascha back in February I think for our 11/2011 wedding and haven't looked back at the others since :)

 

We're going to use a DJ recommended by the resort. Just haven't gotten around to booking it yet. That's my goal for this week!

 

Good luck!!!
