Greeting Royal PDC Brides!!!
It's been FOREVER since I posted, but I'm writing this FROM Playa Del Carmen! Ryan and I are here on our site visit and OMG, it is so gorgeous here. By sheer beauty alone, your wedding is going to be amazing.
To answer some questions:
5th Avenue is pretty happening, plenty of people everywhere, but its more of a low-key beach town feel than the crazy Cancun or Puerto Vallarta party feel. The clubs are all a few blocks away from 5th, I think on purpose.
Decorations on 5th avenue: I haven't seen any flower shops. Not sure about vases. There are some more inexpensive things like maracas for about $1.00 each that would be nice on top of tables...I just don't know how much time anyone is going to want to spend on a scavenger hunt for decorations while you're here. To be honest, the reason we chose a Destination Wedding is to just mark off a checklist and call it a day. Weddings are way too much work otherwise! Keep it simple...
Also, we've only been here one night so far, but the food is FANTASTIC! The restaurant Maria's has a great menu and the Mexican Coffee is DEFINITELY worth asking for, an experience in and of itself.
I am so, so, so happy to be here. It is all so exciting seeing the real deal! Your weddings are going to be an experience of a lifetime.
Tomorrow I do my trial makeup and engagement photos with Ivan Luckie!!!
