  1. Ok...so I guess I should've posted here a bit ago, but to be honest w/ you, I simply forgot. Ok, so we got married on May 8th, 2009. Yes, right in the thick of the Swine Flu crisis. We left May 2nd. We were close to canceling 2 days before because of all the news and the chance of flights being canceled, but we decided to go through with it. We had very close family friends tell us that they will do whatever we do. So we decided to go through with it. We thought, it's just the flu! So we took the chance. So, May 2nd-6th we stayed in the actual town of Playa because we loved it so m
  2. Hi! I just want to say that we originally had booked our wedding w/ Blue Parrot Weddings..which is a great choice..very reasonable. We originally didn't want our guests to pay an arm and a leg to come to our wedding, so originally we were telling all of our guests to stay at La Tortuga. Very reasonable hotel, plus you get breakfast every day included and it's great!! However, at the last minute, after our invitations were sent out! (eek!) we found Sandos Playacar Beach Resort and Spa. It is VERY REASONABLE for an all inclusive. I believe it's $180 a night for 2 people. That of course inc
  3. Hello! I just want to say that I would consider Blue Parrot Weddings. I originally had a deposit down w/ them until about 31/2 months before our wedding which is in a few weeks. Paula is the wedding coordinator and she is FABULOUS!! She has always been EXTREMELY EXTREMELY accommodating. She will work with you and try to get everything to your liking. You do NOT have to have your wedding at the actual Blue Parrot Beach Club, but you can also have it at Playasia restaurant which they own. However, that is only if you have 30 or less guests. I didn't hear any bad reviews about Playasia..onl
  4. wow! your pics are so cute! I love them! your dress is beautiful! I think I saw something like that on Say Yes To the Dress. You guys looked like you had an amazing time. I loved viewing your pics, they actually made me laugh out loud! very entertaining. Did you request for those flowers to be set up along the aisle? I thought that looked really cool! The cocktails that you guys were drinking, those are included correct w/ the package? I like how they set that up too. For the dinner, that is how the tables are set w/out adding decorations or anything you brought in? T
  5. What I mean by reasonable is the price of the room. Funjet offers a great hotel deal on their site. However, we found that if you purchase those entertainment books The 2009 Entertainment® Book - Great Savings on Dining, Shopping, Travel, Attractions, Movie Tickets & More! you get a 10% off your hotel stay via american airlines vacations! so that saved our guest even more money. for 2 people to stay from wed-sun there in a run of house room w/ that discount above it's only $717!! that includes the roundtrip ground transportation too! That comes out to $89 a day per person. I thought
  6. We actually changed our mind on the AHR. We decided a couple of months ago not to do after all. It's too much stress, and most importantly too $$. We have more important things to save for(HOUSE!). If anyone wants to congratulate us, they can stop by our place. I'm so happy we decided not to do it because I was stressing out bigtime about it. Just not worth it to us. The most important people to us will be there in Mexico, so that's really all that matters. Good Luck everyone!
  7. I understand your frustration totally! I don't understand why we would have to pay an additional amount for drinks either, especially since they are included. I mean, that's just to serve them I'm assuming? But we decided on this resort because it was the most budget friendly overall for our guests. Every other place around there is so expensive. We wanted to keep the cost down for everyone. I heard they have the best beach on the strip. So as long as the food is decent and the rooms ok, we are fine w/ that. The ceremony setup on the beach is beautiful. Just so worth it for the price rea

  9. Hey JodiMichelle, I don't know what number you are trying to call, but I have Lupita's number, or the number that is included in her signature line, However, it's an actual Mexico number/info. To dial Mexico from the US you have to dial 011 first Guadalupe Porras C. | Groups & Weddings Planner Sandos Playacar Beach Resort & Spa Tel. + 52 984 877 4040 Ext. 4209 | Fax +52 984 877 4059 weddings.playacar@sandoshotels.com Hoteles en Lanzarote.

  10. not only is there a $500 "site fee" to have it on the beach OR by the pool, there is an additional charge of $39 p/p for the food and I believe another $15 per person for the open bar. So a lot more money you will have to spend versus the free option. PLUS you have to have 40 people minimum to have it on the beach/pool. We really wanted it on the beach, but that is a lot of extra money to tack on on top of the package fee. But if you have it, go ahead! Wish we did!
  11. My favorite pic is the one where you guys are signing the legal document. You look absolutely gorgeous!
  12. Also, Did they give you an option to decorate the reception area I was informed by Lupita that they do not decorate the dinner area, but wondered if you brought anything to decorate the tables, or if they even really need it
  13. Thanks so much Sbertling! I'm getting married on May 8th and I'm getting very nervous. As far as your music goes, did you just put those two songs on a cd and hang them to her and they played them? Did she instruct you to put two songs on there just curious. Another thing I'm nervous about is the dinner. The fact that they hushed you worries me as my friends that are going are pretty energetic is the way to put it..so I can imagine how they are going to be if we eat there. I can't WAIT to see your pics. I wish it was in my budget to use Matt or Sol for our wedding. but I'm
  14. Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone else has seen the latest news on travel alerts on traveling to Mexico. Now universities are warning spring breakers to NOT travel this year due to the increase in violence. They are even stating not to travel to Cancun/Riviera Maya!! This has me a little worried. I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were. Here's a link to the U.S. Department of State Travel advisory: MIG: Mexico Travel Alert although this article I just found states something different for the big tourist areas. Mexico: Spring Break, Beaches -- and Bloodshed - N
