  1. MC - I used Matt from Del Sol for my recent wedding. Seriously, look no further - he was awesome! Not just a great photographer but a fun and cool guy - cute too - Sol's a lucky girl!
  2. I got my pictures from Del Sol - you can see where you marry very clearly in them. http://www.pictage.com/628524
  3. They had big speakers set up (the ones they use around the pool) and the music was loud and perfect. I had my wedding at 4:30 as Matt said that is when the light is perfect. I did not use the resort photographer or videographer. You have to pay for the resort photographer whether you use her or not which is a bit of a drag.
  4. I only had a symbolic ceremony - we had a small legal ceremony at home. A couple more thoughts... We didn't get an upgraded room as the resort was at 100% capacity. They are selling it out cheap right now so don't go thinking you will get an upgraded room as you will be dissapointed. Our room was perfectly fine though. The resort is perfect if you have kids with you which we did... If your wedding is adults only - you might think about another resort because there are lots of kids. Lupita is very busy. She had a wedding every day we were there but she also is very good at what she does. I hope she gets paid well...can you imagine planning a wedding every day?! My biggest fear was our music - I had two songs, one going down (David Grey This Year's Love) and one coming back (Phil Collins - In Your Eyes) and they nailed it perfectly!! There will be people on the beach watching your wedding - we must have had 50 people watching. I didn't use the hair salon at the resort, I did my own hair because I was frightened at what I might end up with. I did see a wedding a couple days later where all the girls used the resort hairdresser and they had beautiful, perfect wedding hair (those curling iron, hairsprayed curls - hope that makes sense) and I now regret not getting my hair done there - go for it!!
  5. Hi Ladies! I just got home about 8 hours ago from getting married at Sandos Playacar on February 19, 2009 and I wanted to tell you girls not to worry at all. First off, I don't think Mexico is the place for a fussy or picky bride to marry as there are just too many things that can and probably will go wrong but if you just want a beautiful, romantic wedding, this place is perfect. I purchased the US$1900 package and it was well worth it. The beach where we married was absolutely perfect and they set it up beautifully with white ribbons on the palapas, white cloth covered chairs with big silver bows and a beautiful gazebo covered in flowers. I arranged everything with Lupita the day after I arrived and everything turned out so beatifully right down to my perfect pink gerber daisy bouquet. We had dinner in the Gourmet restaurant and the food was awesome, however they did hush us once and we were a pretty small group of 14. Lupita is awesome and takes care of all the details and even the cake was much prettier (and tasty) than I thought it would be. When we arrived back at our room we were surprised - I'm not going to tell you because it should be a surprise for you as well . Seriously, even though I'm a bit bias, it was the most beautiful wedding I've been to. Matt Adcock (Del Sol Photography) was our photographer and I seriously love that guy!!! I recommend him fully - worth every penny ladies. I will post photos when I get them from him.
  6. Oh Heidi - you will have to give us all the details when you get back!
  7. Gather here Getting married Feb. 19/2009 at 4:30 p.m. on the Sandos private beach!
  8. This is what I'm doing as well - no hassle, no stress when we get to Mexico! We have a marriage commissioner coming over the night before we leave. I was relieved when we decided to do it this way.
  9. I feel your pain - although I felt bad for all the people attending so I have charged everyone $1,000 for a $1900 trip - paying the balance out of my pocket. It's added up
  10. I am booked at Sandos Playacar and was initially worried as I was booked at the Riu first. My WC at Sandos has been EXCELLENT!! I am no longer nervous about my resort change.
  11. I changed my venue and I couldn't be happier. The WC at Sandos has been so helpful and answers my emails and questions right away. As well, they give a significant discount to the kids coming and if you have a lot of kids, it really adds up. Feb 19 is my wedding date and I'm SO excited
