  1. Oh wait, Maroma is also INCREDIBLE ! but it's a lot more expensive, so just be prepared for that.
  2. Check out Hotel Las Palapas. We just had our wedding there and loved the location.
  3. It's absolutely amazing but I can't justify the price having just gone through all the wedding expirience
  4. Sure, I got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, near Cancun. It's pretty warm during the day - you can swim and do all the beach stuff. At night, we needed a sweater. Just be aware of that as the temperature drops significantly. All the best ! I will post my review once I get the pictures and video.
  5. We just came back from our wedding at las Palapas on 12/4. It was amaizing ! I will post another note with a detailed review of our vendors, place, pictures, etc. Before I do that, I want to let you know that it gets pretty cold at night. Ask your guests to bring a light sweater or a chawl. I wanted to have my reception on the beach but had to change it cause it was too cold. I mean for Playa standards.It turned out to be better. Also, make sure to ask your guests to be careful with the speed limits on the highway. We had no major issues, but many of our friends got a ticket cause of speeding ! Some had to pay 350 usd ! auch ! Hertz offers a nice shuttle service, safe and cheaper than getting the hotel service. I quick review, our most amazing experience at the wedding was the band, yes ! BALANCE was the best thing ever. We were so impressed at how they kept everyone dancing and how well they played all kind of music, salsa, rock, cumbia, pop, jewish, etc. UNBELIEVEABLE ! More to come ..... Congratulations to everyone !
  6. Forgot to mention this is the place for calligraphy Sonia was great ! we did everything over the internet - http://www.kaligrafilia.com/KaligrafiliaWEB2010/Kaligrafilia.html We chose the start fish in red - but this is all what she was able to do. Albarran_Proof_092910.pdf
  7. Thanks for the ideas about the rabbi, we called that person and she recommended someone else. We just got our proofs for invitations, we are so late at sending them. But people already got the save the dates. Here is what I am using: I am so thrilled about using Balance for our music - we will have a short salsa performance and we have been taking lessos for that ! Save the date designed by my fiance - he was so cute ! - and it was a picture we took in Tulum Hand made plates we will give to our guests - inspired in our wedding Caligraphy designed in Mexico in Spanish and English - she was so flexible with us !
