    JB thanks for the website! I will check it out.

    Katusha please do forward me the price list. My email is alechner0355@hotmail.com.  Thanks so much.  You are getting so close to your date! How exciting for you guys!

    Moni, glad to see you back! It has been a busy summer and hard to check in here often.  You are getting so close to your date too.  What have you decided for ceremony and reception sites?

      Katusha, I almost forgot about you!!! I haven't completely settled anything with the La Barcaza since I'm using them for my sunset rehearsal dinner cruise and I wanted to make sure I got everything in order with Now first before them, let me know if you do use them and would love to hear feedback how it worked out! I'm also in contact with 2 other companies for the cruise, it would help to be able to compare them...

        JB what are the two other companies?? I'm trying to do the same....  I plan on having the ceremony on the beach & still like the idea of the poolside reception.  The pools look beautiful at night all lit up=).... want to do a cruise too but not 100% on when??? I have a lot of guests coming in the day b4 & I think it may be too much a night before the wedding.  I was considering la barcaza for the reception..... but I feel like it will end up being a lot more $$....What do you think? I think it was between 60-80 pp  I'm trying to plan dinner at the asian restaurant for thurs for 25 guests... fri a welcome cocktail party preferably at the eclipse lounge for ALL my guests......followed by dinner @ the carnival restaurant(not really my first choice, but since we will be having approx 50....they assured that they would sit us all together.... and then early night!  Saturday Wedding day!!  Sunday just Chill.... Monday ~ boat cruise

          Hey Ladies!

          I just booked our trip to the Now Larimar August 3rd thru the 6th. Yay! Can't wait to check out the hotel and let you all know every bit of information I can take in.  The hotel is charging us $114 pp per night in August and if we book 50 people for our wedding then we get reimbursed for the room for our visit in August. So excited!  We have around 45 people booked now so I am sure we will make it to 50!!

          JB I will get that questionairre information sent to you tomorrow!

              I have been following this thread for some time because in the beginning I wanted to be a NOW bride, but the rates at the time I was booking were crazy high. Since they have come down but I had already booked my resort which is the Majestic Colonial. I believe you should be able to get a decent rate. My guests are paying 740 per person for 7 nights just for the resort, and that's for the junior suite. If you decide to switch let me know if you have any questions...here is my email

              Girls,

              Thanks for the word of encouragement.  Jamie, you are right about going with the flow.  That is exactly why I decided to have a destination wedding.  I guess I am not as concerned about the lack of response from Claribel as the negative reviews. I really want my family to get their money's worth, and if the food is awful and it is overrun by locals they will be sorry they came.  I am hoping you are right in that they fix these problems soon. This does not seem to be an issue with the NOW resorts in Mexico.  So frustrating.

               

              Dee, I am so sorry that you have decided to change resorts, but totally understand and may be right behind you.  Did something else happen, or is it just the lack of response on all levels?  Do you have a second choice? Right now I am looking into the Majestic.  I know it will be about $60-80 per night more per person(at least), but may be worth it in the end for peace of mind. Had you actually sent your STD's yet?  I have not checked into my deposit, but since it was only $100 I am not too concerned at this point.  My FI still wants to stick it out...

                Moni, here is the info for the marinarium, they have pretty reasonable prices plus if you're not doing it as a reception for your wedding you also have the option to snorkel and stuff

                    Sadly, problems are underfoot and I may have to push back the trip again. Which I am not pleased about. I'll know more by the beginning of next week. I may be going in September instead. I sooo look forward to hearing your report.

                      Moni, I'm glad you wrote this, because I completely forgot to discuss the welcome dinner and cocktail party for my guests with the resort. Did you communicate with Claribel regarding this or should I email someone else? Do they charge you anything to book a dinner for 25 ppl or the next day welcome party? I really hope it won't cost us an arm and a leg, since the wedding is already quite costly. Also, I haven't seen any pics of a reception by the poolside, I know some of you ladies say it's beautiful. Do you happen to have any pictures of it? Maybe I'll choose this option too.

                      Sara, I am so glad you're going there in August. This would be such a help to us all!
