Secrets Maroma/planner 1 Events

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We are excitedly counting down the days until our July 18, 2015 wedding at Secrets Maroma Beach Rivera Cancun!

 

I posted in the Secrets Maroma thread but there doesn't seem to be too much activity there. 

 

I was referred to Gabi at Planner 1 Events by the Wedding Cordinator at Secrets Maroma.   It took Gabi a few weeks to respond to my initial email and it has now been 2 weeks since I sent her my questionnaires and I haven't heard back.  I understand that Wedding Coordinators at resorts are very busy and can only imagine the same for planning companies.  But in my opinion, two weeks seems like a little long for a outside planning company to respond. 

 

Does anyone have an experience with either Secrets Maroma or Planner 1 Events that they can share?   I'm also interested to know if 2+ weeks is the norm for vendors outside of resorts to respond. 

Thanks!

Hey!! I am getting married there in April!! 

I just got i contact with her and it kind of took a few emails to get a response. Then were emailed back and forth a few times and since Friday I haven't heard back....The waiting game can be very frustrating!! 2 weeks is ridiculous. If I don't here anything in 2 to 3 days I email AGAIN and AGAIN!

@@FutureMrsNash I'm so happy to hear from someone else getting married there!  Are you working with Cecilia as well?  I'm waiting to hear back on Gabi about pricing.  What are you using Planner 1 for?  Looking forward to hearing about your day! :)

What you're saying is a very common thread throughout this site! lol For someone not overly familiar with the process it can definitely be frustrating! Firstly, this time of the year is one of the busiest for destination weddings. It may sound cliché but since your wedding isn't until July, the coordinators will be busy with the brides that are ahead of you. I do want to reassure you and say that the WCs at these resorts know their stuff. It's what they do for a living. They aren't ignoring you. Your planning won't really kick into high gear until a couple of months before your wedding. That's a bit intimidating for brides from the US and canada that are used to the amount of detail that is needed for a wedding at home. Definitely if you haven't heard after a couple of weeks, send the email again. Another tip is to try to put your questions into one email rather than sending an email with one question, then another. That makes it a bit easier for the coordinator to go through and give you your answers all together.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Well it certainly is helpful to see this thread here, I'm getting married at Secrets Maroma in December so i have a bit of time I'm also working with Cecilia and I just got put in contact with the Wedding 1 Planners and the DJ. 

 

I'm really more  concerned with their in-house DJ and would love to know if any of you  have any info to share about him. 

This is #1 on the priority list for me. 

 

Thanks so much ladies and happy planning! :-)

Hello wedding planners!

Greetings and salutations from Playa del Carmen, sending you all some warmth if you are suffering from winter blues!

 

With regards to vendors and response time, it is unfortunate that often the priority is placed on brides that have closer wedding dates. During high season they may be totally overwhelmed too! That said, we have always had positive experiences working with Planner 1 and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Just send them a little nudge email as a reminder that they are overdue in responding. :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
