  1. I hired Laura from Premium Florist for all my floral decorations and I have no complaints. The hotel didn't charge me any outside passes for all my outside vendors: Trio Stylist for my makeup and hair; Laura for my decorations. I told Laura my budget and she worked with it and gave me suggestions. I also sent her tons of pictures with my ideas and she provided me with quotes. Her price was reasonable. Feel free to contact her and compare the prices.
  2. The arch was included in the old complimentary package (not the Colin Cowie complimentary package). I like the drape of the arch so I requested it for the wedding ceremony. Trio Stylist is an outside vendor. The company is located very close to the hotel but I asked Wilma to let them into the hotel for my makeup and hair for both occasions (wedding day and TTD). Wilma waived their day passes! The stylists did a great job and they were fun to work with. I highly recommend them! I brought my photographers, Stone Photo, from Vancouver, BC.
  3. Hello all Playacar Palace brides, I had my wedding on December 9, 2012 but couldn't find the time to write a review. Sorry... I hope the following pictures will help you plan your perfect wedding! Wedding Coordinator: My wedding planner was Wilma and she was amazing! She agreed to almost every request we had. Most importantly, she saved us quite a bit of money by letting us use outside vendors. She got all our requests noted and followed exactly how we envisioned. Everything was under her control and she was very pleasant to work with. Flowers: We ordered our decorations and bouquets from Laura from Premium Flores (premiumflores@gmx.es). The price was reasonable and the flowers were great! They came in fresh and on time. I would recommend them. Makeup/Hair: I booked Trio Stylist and they were great! I would highly recommend them. Adrian, not only helped with my makeup, he also recommended a great taxi driver for our trash the dress session. I had a great time with them. If you stay at this hotel, you MUST MUST MUST go to the park next to the hotel for photo session! The park is only located 3 minutes walking distance from the hotel. No one was there and we had lots of great pictures. Some beach shots after the ceremony/night time: If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Happy planning! Cheers, Eva

  5. Sharing with you with more information on resort credits: Chichen Itza: Monday and Friday from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm Swim with Dolphins: Every day at 3:30 pm is about 40 min activity, and the park is located around 20 min, from the resort. Transportation is not included. Tulum: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm If you would like to apply the resort credit promotion the reservations must be booked upon your arrival.
  6. Lola: Congratulations! I didn't know those Del Sol photos were actually from your wedding! You look very pretty in the pictures and since I've never been to the hotel, I hope you don't mind me using them as a reference! I also booked Styling Trio for my wedding and TTD makeup and hair. I'm glad you liked their service! Pacificarol and Andrea80: My wedding will be on December 9 so I guess I will see you at the hotel! I'm curious what decorations you will bring to the hotel in case we have the same idea... My party only has 20 guests so it's going to be small.
  7. Thank you very much for sharing the pictures! Very happy couple. Now I have a better understanding of the hotel surroundings and the setup.
  8. Hi TeamChubs, I got Wilma's contact from this forum and so I contacted her directly without dealing with the Miami Office and she has been great and helpful!
  9. I received the following information from Wilma and would like to share with you: Due to new projects that Playacar is having, the North Solarium is under construction (for new suites), I think they will finish in 2 months and at that time I will know if we can still use this venue for private events or we will have another option, as soon as I know about this, I will let you know. My wedding will be in December so I should have plenty of time to change my reception to other location even though I prefer to have it at North Solarium.
  10. Good to know about the sound system. We'll give it a try and see if it works well. No matter what, we are planning to bring and play our own music because we don't need a dance floor. Makeup: Adrian's salon (Styling Trio) is only 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. That way I get to save on the day pass for 2-3 people. I can also use the trial run hair and makeup on the TTD session. I trust they will do a good job even without the trial run. Floral Vendor: Maybe I'll ask Laura to drop off the stuff at the hotel and I'll ask my friends to pick them up for the reception decoration. (Wilma) Yes you can do this; please just let your friends know that they will need to be available at the time the florist gets to the hotel to get all the stuff. New Tax: The 11% tax is only on the resort credits and you need to pay in cash or credit card for the tax at the end of your stay after using the credits. I think I will reserve for spa and dolphin swim this week for December 2012 to save on tax.

  14. To RMBride2B:My fiance is a local dj and I was told you can't plug the wireless mic to the bose speaker... something to do with input and output. But anyway, I just realized I need to pay for 2 people's pass for the outside vendors as he's bringing an assistant. Even with the discount of $130 just for the ceremony, it'll end up $312! In that case, I'll have to rethink if I should just have the hotel's sound system for $300. Are you getting the mariachi band from the hotel? Here's what I got from Wilma regarding the drape: Q: What is the measurement of the huppa? I may also try to get the fabric myself if it's cheaper to do so. Do you also rent out the other huppas from other Colin Collections? I'm trying to check which option is the most cost effective. A: The price to rent the (old) structure is 400usd and the price to rent the fabric is 80usd, in case you bring your fabric we will be in charge to set up this on the huppah and we just need to consider an extra charge of 100usd as decoration set up fee. What I can figure out is that we can fit the white fabric in the new complementary structure of Colin Cowie, we are waiting for all of this stuff so as soon as I get it, I can see and I can let you know if you need the other huppah or with the one you have now is enough. What do you think? In other words, she will confirm with me if I can just rent the white drape from the old package at USD 80 and keep the new huppa structure. To Maii: Outside florist contact is Laura and her email is premiumflores@gmx.es. I like the fact that she will give you ideas and be able to work around your budget. She has no minimum, which is great! She can replicate the bouquet as shown below (in different color) for USD 65 and the reception centerpieces in baby's breath (10 of them in different sizes) for USD 356.
