    Reception Entrance Songs

    We did Forever by Chris brown for our welcoming song, it was PERFECT!!
  2. Hi Jenny! The sunset time online was pretty accurate. My ceremony started at 5 and the sun was supposed to set at 6:15, which it pretty much did...The light started going away a little probably around 5:30, it was pretty dark by 6:30.
  3. Woops! I just realized I had posted the same things at least 3 times, sorry! The system was going haywire. Jes - You did everything so quickly!! I sent mine via mail to SS office and going to the DMV tomorrow. Was it easy to change on credit cards etc.??
  4. Hi! Thanks so much! My ceremony was at 5:00. I thought it was a great time to do it. We did rush a little bit during cocktail hour to get pictures but everything worked out great. I didn't mind rushing the pics since i'm not big into posing for pics anyway. Plus, since your in June...you'll have more than an hour more sun than I did, so i think a 6:00 ceremony is perfect in June If you want a little more sun for first dance, etc...you can switch to 5. I'll make sure to post my Funever pics when I get them. We also did symbolic and it seems very official because you sign a certificate at the end in front of everyone.

    Married Chicas - what is your new name???

    I am taking my husband's last name. We both come from traditional families, and it seems the way to go for me! I am keeping my middle name the same. I have a "boy's" name for my maiden name so I hope I will have sons that I can pass that name on to. Most of my married friends have changed their last name, and 1 kept her maiden name. I recently met one couple who had both of their names hyphenated, and the wife told me it was a long process, especially with her husband changing his.
  10. Been crazy at work unfortunately...finally had a chance to do my review. Wish I had some professional pics though...i don't see why it should take sooo long. Oh well, here it is!! http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/the-royal-in-playa-del-carmen-all-inclusive-spa-resort
  11. Thanks everyone! Working on the review right now.... Jenny - I would definitely recommend the spa, the girls there did a great job and they make sure everything is the way you want it. But for makeup they don't have a huge selection...so I would bring foundation and mascara yourself (I got dior blackout waterproof which was awesome!).
  12. Hi Ladies!! I am back from my amazing wedding & honeymoon! I feel like I’ve been gone forever but everything went by so fast. I’m going to post a full review with pics by tomorrow but here is just an overview… Hotel – amazing! We had an oceanfront room and the view was great. Very spacious room. Everyone was super friendly & helpful. We hung out a lot at the pool and it was great. Resort food – Very good! My ONLY complaint was a very bad dinner experience at Tapas y Pinxos…had to wait over 1.5 hours and we were missing orders…we ended up leaving. Also…Spice does not have AC, we ate breakfast & lunch a lot at Mediterraneo…which is a buffet in the A/C. Also…Grand Porto has a great buffet for breakfast/lunch. Maria Marie & Asiana were awesome! Spa – did Mani Pedi & Hair/Makeup. Amazing Mani Pedi! Makeup and hair was also very good. My advice would be to not wear your hair down. It was windy and my hair was flying everywhere and the curls fell out quickly. WC – Lili was amazing & took care of everything! We went over all the details 2 days before the wedding and she was running around making sure everything was perfect for us. Photos – We used Funever & we had Cesar who was really good! We get the pictures in 2 more weeks. Ceremony – Gazebo was great…we ended up with 24 guests seated under the gazebo. Was intimate and very peaceful…the minister was great. She said everything perfectly and with a lot of meaning. Cocktail Hour – in the garden behind the gazebo…everyone loved the food and the guitarist we got. We had an “upgrade†apparently which included all hot and cold apps. The sesame crusted chicken was a huge hit! I wish I had been able to enjoy it. Reception – AWESOME! DJ and extra hour was worth it. Most of the time almost the entire group was on the dance floor (which was a dark wood raised floor, ill post pics in the long review). Food & Cake was great. The servers were awesome at getting drinks for us…they wouldn’t even let us walk up to the bar and always found us to give us a refresher. A lot of the married people there said that they wished their wedding was like ours. That was a nice compliment It was such an amazing experience and everything went perfectly! Just make sure you really take time to enjoy if you can….it goes by sooo quickly!
