Hey ladies- were getting married next week and I'm curious if we are doing a legal ceremony does that mean we'll be legally married in the US or do we still have to go to the courthouse and get married here?

Really?! Magdelena has been fairly prompt responding to my emails! Do you still have all of your correspondence with Mariana? I have kept every single email, that way my quotes from Mariana need to be honoured by Magdelena. I wish Mariana was still there too :(

I will give her a few more days and if things don't get better I think I will ask Tammy to talk to them. My wedding is just 1.5 months away.msncry.gif

 

Why did this happen ?? Why couldn't Mariana just stay for another couple of months?

Yes. I have kept all the emails. I just wish I didn't have to go through this again so close to my wedding ... I now feel like I need to reconfirm everything to avoid last minute hiccups.

 

About legal ceremony: yes, you will be married. However you need to translate your marriage certificate as soon as possible to present for changing your name, bank account, etc. I will be using this website recommended by Dreams: http://www.UltraTranslate.com/ It will cost $100 for certified documents. Hope this helps.

This really sucks, the last thing you need is stress so close to your wedding.  I hope it all works out and that Magdalena starts getting back to you.

 

I must admit though David is my wedding co-ordinator and when i first started working with him over a year ago he would get back to me within a day or 2 now it takes at least a week, very painful and annoying considering my wedding is less than 2 weeks away and we leave in 3 days.

 

I was really hoping to have the cost forecast from him before we left as once we leave i want to be on HOLIDAY and relax and not have to worry about anything!!

I am also getting married @ Dreams this fall. I have been having a really hard time getting Magdalena to reply to my emails as well. Proti, are you cooresponding with her by a new email address? She wrote me an email last week saying she would respond to the email I sent her 2 weeks ago from a new address, but I never got anything from her.  Today I tried sending her an email to the new address, but the email would not go through.

 

@ KiwiBride- Wow, your wedding date is sooo close!!! How are you feeling?

Yes def that is a great idea!  We arrive on the 8th, have a cocktail party at the one and only on the 9th.  We could meet either on the 8th, 10th or 12th.  Have you received your cost forecast from your co-ordiantor??

OK, Magdalena just emailed me and let me know that she is still having email issues. I can't imagine how this is such a big problem, BUT I know that dealing with IT issues can get challenging ... So let's give her another week to figure things out before stressing too much :)

    • How many people in your group?  
    • We chose to have our wedding at Fiesta so our review is broken down into categories. We have visited multiple Mexican vacation spots to include playa del carmen, cabo san lucas, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta. We traveled with a group of 35, mostly adults. We had such a great experience and we will definitely go back to Fiesta American Condesa Cancun!!!!    Resort- this was a good size resort, I liked that It was not too big. We didn’t see any of the shows they offer but we did enjoy the pool every day. It was awesome that they had a live dj playing music and fun games to keep us entertained. The bars were all in good locations, we spent a lot of time at the main lobby bar because it stayed open late. They had bands, silent disco, game competitions, etc. every night all very fun and lively!   Room- We stayed in a junior sweet which had ocean view and was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious bathroom, we had a second bathroom in the living room in addition to a breakfast area.    Food- the buffet had a smaller selection of food than we usually see at all-inclusive resorts however the quality of the food was much better!! The ceviche bar outside had amazing fish or shrimp tacos and provides a nice view of the ocean.    Staff- The cleaning staff was great, our room was tidy and organized every day. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. Yes, we did tip and did so often to ensure they kept coming around. After our wedding, it seemed all staff members knew us by name everywhere we went. We were treated so kindly everywhere!  There were two staff members who played a special role in our vacation, Blanca and Magda. They both were delightful and treated us just like family. Yes, they were awesome to my ENTIRE group.    Venue- We chose to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower pool garden followed by reception on the lower pool deck. Beautiful views for both areas!!! Unfortunately, it rained so we ended up in the ballroom.    Wedding package- We chose the Corazon package and I love what the hotel had to offer. For my personal choice, it was between this package and one at dreams resort but I ultimately decided on this one after reviews from other brides and pictures I looked at. If you are on the fence about a destination wedding I say DO IT!! You can’t beat all inclusive, it really eliminates half the stress of planning a wedding. We had cocktail hour with margaritas, a 3 course dinner, a beautiful cake, and of course open bar. We did not opt for any of the add ons. I did bring my own décor such as table runners, Chinese lanterns, center pieces, bubbles, fans, etc.  The floral arrangements and my boquet were beautiful!!! Exactly as I imagined. My cake was also very pretty and looked just like the one I sent to my coordinator from pinterest.    Wedding coordinator- My wedding coordinator, Violeta Cambranes, was truly amazing!! We communicated mostly through email and a few calls right before wedding time. She was very timely and thorough with our plans. We met with her the day before the wedding. She showed us around and we did our food tasting as well as my trial for hair/make up. She is so personable and really felt like one of my friends throughout this process which is nice to have when you’re leaving such an important day in someone’s hands. I sent her pictures of what I envisioned (wedding colors, floral arrangements, table décor, etc.) and she made it all come to life. Because we ended up having to hold our wedding instead, Violeta was able to make accommodations for us which we are truly grateful for!! She was attentive the entire week we were there and we had no bumps in the road!    Rehearsal Dinner- we had dinner for about 15 people in the Mexican restaurant. The food was great and of course the staff was attentive. I do wish we had the opportunity to choose our own meal but still enjoyed it none the less.    Spa- we received a couples massage and it was perfect. Steam room, sauna, hot tub, and massage. So relaxing!! We also received a second massage on our shoulders one of the days we were there. A spa therapist came to our cabana while we relaxed and drank mimosas.    Date- we got married first week of October. I knew it was one of the rainiest months of the year but I was willing to take the change because it was offseason. I’m so glad that I did!! The rooms and the flights were extremely inexpensive. Also, the resort was not packed at all! There was a comfortable amount of people compared to when we usually travel in the summer. The weather was not too hot but it did rain 3/7 days we were there. Mosquitos were also still in full force so would recommend bug spray.   Photographer- my photographer, Mike Cantarall,  overall was great! He captured all the great moments of the wedding. The highlight video was truly perfect!! I will say it did take extremely long to obtain my pictures (7 weeks when expected turn-around time was supposed to be 7 days). I wish we could have had a discussion prior to wedding day. I don’t love a lot of the poses and he did ask me if there was anything specific I wanted  (while on the beach taking pictures) but in the moment I couldn’t think of exactly what I wanted. In hind sight, I would have asked for more close up, more poses as bride and groom, and for my dress to not be scrunched up. With that being said, I was still pleased with the turn-out of my photos.    DJ- our DJ was AudioCancun. Very pricey!!! But we did not have an option for vendor. He did a great job! He truly recognized the vibe of the group and played the best music to keep the party going! We did give him some specific songs which he played them all.    Make-up- My make up and hair was done by Anastacio Brides. I loved my look!! I showed them pictures from pinterest and it came out exactly how I wanted. After different areas of my face were done, my make-up artist would show me in the mirror to see if it was on track with what I wanted. They were so nice and I enjoyed their company while getting ready for my big day.   Travel- to and from hotel we used Happy Shuttle. They have great rates and I trusted them based on the reviews I read. I bought a garment back and carried my dress in my hands the entire way there and back! (yes even through all the flights). We ended up taking 4 suitscases between the two of us and also had some of our family members pack things for us.    Boat- Our group took a triple decker boat, Dancer Cruise, to Isla Mujeres. It was a full day of fun, accommodating both kids and adults. We snorkeled, we ate lunch, and we danced! The slide and diving board were pretty fun! The staff was lively and the boat was not very packed so that was nice. They did give us a group rate when I emailed them directly.
