My wedding planner, Mayla was great. The box that I shipped was someone in Cancun and would not have been delivered for two weeks and she graciously picked up for us. She was extremely helpful before, during and after the wedding.
My hair and makeup were great- I had my hair down and curled- very simple. I loved my makeup. I used the Derma Doctor wipes to prevent sweating and they makeup artist used waterproof makeup- I cried ALOT and my makeup did not smudge at all.
I had my Welcome Dinner at Toscana (the Italian restaurant) with a set menu. It was semi-private so that way we didn't have to pay the $24 per person for a private event. They were extremely accommodating and great about changing my dinner time. It was supposed to be at 5:30 and got changed to 7:00 on the same day because some of my guests had had flight delays and would not get to the resort on time.
My ceremony was on the beach and it was perfect- the officiant stood in the back as to not get in the way of the photographs and only came in the front when we had to sign the paperwork. It was short and sweet and to the point.
My cocktail hour on the pier was great too- we had the mariachi band. The food and drinks were awesome. We didn't even have a signature drink but the bartenders made one for us.
The reception was in the Foyer- I was going to have it in Barcelona but changed it last minute to the Foyer because I thought it was nicer after seeing Barcelona. It looked beautiful and we had a nice breeze coming in. My wedding planner (Mayla) provided us with two huge fans as well because the dance floor was a bit hot. The food was delicious. The only thing I also noticed was that nobody got to eat the cake. I was asked if I wanted it passed out with the dessert and I said yes but my guests said they never got it. That would be my only complaint.
A quick review about the resort:
Everyone we have talked to at the resort and our family and friends have said this is the best resort they have stayed at.
The service is outstanding, the food is great (our favorites were Spice the Asian restaurant, the French restaurant and Mexican restaurant).
We are leaving tomorrow but have been here for 10 days and they have been great!
My only two complaints are that there is no 24 hr pool- they close at 8pm and there is no restaurant or cafe open 24/7- but there is room service.
I hope you all have wonderful wedding days- enjoy it..it goes by so fast!
Let me know if you have any questions at all! I will post some pictures when I get home this weekend!
You are such a doll for writing a review. Thanks so much! I haven't worked with Mayla but it's good to hear she has treated you so wonderfully.
I can't help but be pleased to hear the Foyer is not only beautiful but has a breeze because that's where our reception will be. It's kind of odd that they keep having the same issues with not handing out cake to guests. How strange.
More than anything I'm always so happy to hear that people's guests have such a great time at ERC. If we have people flying from all over to join us somewhere that we picked out, we really want it to be perfect for them.
I can't wait to see pics! I bet you looked gorgeous!
