    PDC Wedding-Where to Honeymoon?

    Great, we are definitely considering staying in Mexico now. I appreciate all the responses. We can: Stay in PDC Go to Cozumel Go to Isla Mujeres Go to Tulum Let me know if you have any advice on where to stay. Interested in a smaller hotel near activities, snorkeling, diving, etc. Thanks!

I know it will be later, but we are doing photos before so we can go straight to partying. We are working with Weddings in Cancun. They have arranged group transportation at very affordable rates. I highly recommend them! Let me know if you want their contact information. I'm not sure of the company they are using.
  4. Anacj13 My wedding is at the Xcaret Chapel on 11-15-10! If you decide to do any additional candles or decor, we should share. I am bringing my photographer too.

    Covering Tatoos

I may get another one on my back before the wedding too....

    I think it's perfectly acceptable. I love that many of my guests are making this their vacation and getting excited about the trip.

    Cocktail hour or no?

    I agree skipping the cocktails is ok, but do a fun signature non-alcoholic drink instead...like an aqua fresca, lemonade or mojito mocktail.

  11. We are trying to decide where to honeymoon after our wedding in Playa del Carmen this November. We will only have about 4-5 days after we leave PDC, so it should be somewhat close by and affordable. We love outdoor activities, adventure, and small hotels/resorts rather than an all inclusive. Please let us know if you have any other suggestions. We are just in the early stages of planning.

I know I have definitely had comments from guests and I'm sure many people on this forum are experiencing the same thing.
