    Hope that wasn't confusing...she held the microphone why secretly whispering in my ear what I needed to say out loud into the microphone for my vows. She was very professional and sweet! You'll meet with whoever you pick before the wedding (ours we met two days before) and they go over everything with you!! These are professionals who know what they're doing ;) I was impressed at the fact that even though she must do a million of these a year she still made it very personal towards us which to me was very important...nobody wants to feel like a cookie-cutter couple during their ceremony! 😉

I am getting married in the gazebo and beach reception in October 2013 :)

      We did our rehearsal "dinner" cocktail hour on the beach. Minus the fact that is when we apparently all started spreading illness, it was wonderful. everyone kicked off their shoes, the bar set up was great, etc. The only concern we had was our older guests walking on sand, and they mostly sat at the tables and everyone came around to talk with them.

      Hello Ladies,

       

      I just recently got engaged, but I've been stalking this thread for awhile now  Everyone's comments have been very helpful. 

      Planning my hotel stay seems to be more complicated than I thought. Did all of you HAVE to be there 3 full business days (not counting arrival day) before the wedding? 

       

      Thanks!

              Congratulations!!! You have to be there 3 full business days ahead of time if you're doing a legal ceremony, and perhaps catholic, I'm not sure on that one. I'm getting married legally at home and just doing a symbolic ceremony so it's n/a to me but otherwise yes it's a Mexican requirement not a resort thing, which is one of the reasons we decided to get married legally at home first.

                I agree...once we read what you had to do to have it be legal there we both looked at each other and knew we'd just get married at city hall. We're not broadcasting it to people and just see it as an extension of paperwork but translating the documents, getting there 3 days early it was all to much for me!!

                  Hi Ladies!

                  Did any of you former brides have outside hotel guest come you your wedding?  And/or is anyone who hasn't had their wedding yet, planning on having outside guests?  I know the guests will have to get a day pass for the day of the wedding ($99/pass to my understanding).  And I know the resort charges more for these outside guest, right?

                   

                  My question to those who are having outside guests:

                  Did you or will you be paying for their day passes?  Or are you asking them to pay for that? 

                  And how does it work?  If you pay for it, do they just go to the front desk and ask for it?
