That's so exciting Splenda.  I wish my wedding was sooner... we're still a year away at this point! 

 

Do you mind me asking which restaurant you chose?  Are they closing it to the other hotel guests, or have you just reserved a section for your group?  I'm curious how much it would cost to do that, and whether or not you use the regular restaurant menu or if you use one of the wedding buffet/plated dinner menus?

 

P.S. The cigar roller is such a cool idea!

We haven't decided on the restaurant yet, I told Claribel I need to see and get a feel first when we actually get there because there are so few pictures! But we are just planning on reserving a section. We want to use the restaurant menus because the pre set menus have less variety(in our opinion), and we have people with food allergies.

I totally agree with you about the restaurant menus... so much better!  We really hoped that would be an option, instead of the pre-set wedding menus. It's probably easier on the restaurant staff as well, since they wouldn't need to bring in any additional ingredients to suit the other menu.  Good to know :)

I have had the WORST time EVER getting in touch with Claribel. That aspect has been a nightmare. We've had this issue since the very beginning of booking (we were dealing with an Emy and then a Cristina prior to Claribel). Our travel agent initially worked things out for us in terms of getting responses when they weren't doing it in the beginning, but since we're so close, I thought she would be a tad more on top of things, but it took forever. I tried calling, they gave me the run around, and so I filed a complaint with AM Resorts.

 

Eventually we skyped and settled (i hope) everything. But it took a while, and the stress it caused made me really reconsider. The thing with Claribel though, is that when you ACTUALLY get to her, she is great at reassuring you that everything is going to work out perfect. I will be sure to come back and give a review post wedding because I really hope that despite sucking at getting responses out fast, Claribel gets it together in the end.

I'm so sorry that you ladies have had to deal with hounding your WC.  I can only imagine what that would feel like!

My travel agent (my cousin) told me before I picked my hotel to email all the WCs at each hotel I was interested in and which ever ones would respond fastest - those were the ones I should consider and she was right.

 

My WC never went more than a few hours without responding to me via email, she had called me at work, she called me at the resort...

She was very easy to reach and communicate with.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
