    Hi everyone, I went forward with booking ERC! I was just assigned Thamara as my wedding coordinator. Has anyone worked with her? Feedback or tips?

    Hey @JulieStaad ! Congrats! When are you getting married? I'm currently working with her, she reaponds fairly quickly, and has provided me with a lot of info! I think a couple of us on here are working with her. :)

    @JulieStaad Congrats!! I'm working with her as well. My only advice is to plan your emails a bit and try to ask for everything you need answered in one email. At first, I was asking a question and waiting for a reply and then asking another question and it took awhile with the back and forth, but now I try to list out all the things I want answered at the same time. That way even if it takes her a week or two to get back to me, I still have all the information I need to move forward on something once I do hear back.

      Hey @KeriT21 - not until November of 2017, but we are trying to give friends and family lots of time to plan and make the process less stressful for ourselves. :) When is your big day? So exciting - and glad to hear Thamara is helpful!
      Great advice @kjb0528 - appreciate it! Did she send you any cocktail hour or reception options and photos yet?

      @JulieStaad I think I got those from the ERC wedding packet that I got when I first reserved our date (before being assigned a wedding coordinator), but I can't remember. I'll try to figure out a way to add attachments to this post to share with you. I was there last November so I know the resort well enough if you have any questions on it. How many guest are you expecting as that will make a difference on your venue.

        @kjb0528 we are thinking it will be 30-40 and are leaning towards Las Olas for the reception but haven't visited the property so aren't sure on that or cocktail hour. A few women on here have been kind enough to share a couple photos but there don't seem to be many available from ERC or online to give me a sense of what to pick.

        @JulieStaad Congrats! So exciting! One of the options they showed me was having the cocktail hour on the beach. Might be good for you guys if you plan to do Los Olas.

          Hi ladies, does anyone who got/is getting married in November have a recommendation on time? We are waivering between 4 and 5 based on hearing it may be dark already by 5. Thanks!

          @JulieStaad Do you have an option of 4? I was told only 3 or 5pm. We are getting married in January and debated the same thing and went back and forth and ultimately landed on 5pm, rather than 3pm based on our photographer's recommendation. A year or so ago, the cancun area changed their time zone so the sun now sets an hour later (approx 6:30pm in Jan). The "magic hour" for pictures is supposedly the hour before sunset so this gives us about an hour of pictures before the sun is fully set. I'm still nervous about it but basically I was worried about the flow of the day having the ceremony at 3pm and then having a long break before dinner.

            @kjb0528 you're right! I looked back and those were the only times offered for us as well. Guess we'll stick with the later hour and hope for the best on lighting. Maybe will take some of the photos before the ceremony.
