  1. It`s definitely not too early! I have more than a handful of weddings already booked for Fall 2015. I am seeing more and more than brides are starting to book extremely early. If you ever need any assistance I am always here to help. Happy planning!
  2. This is precisely what I love to hear!! I honestly try to share with my brides that the smaller resorts are honestly the hotels that offer the best service and the most special moments. I personally prefer working with smaller hotels, their attention to detail is spot on and something that can lack in the larger mega resorts. Happy Planning!!
  3. On the contrary Maredith. You are literally STEPS to the 5th Avenue and from there you have TONS to do. Plus right outside the resort you have snorkeling, ferry to Cozumel, world class shopping, tours to go practically anywhere! Plus, the beach in front of the Playacar Palace has to be one of, if not THE nicest beach in Playa. It is my personally favorite for my days at the beach. I think it is the best of both worlds, you have the All Inclusive Resort yet you are RIGHT in the heart of Playa del Carmen.

    Big Wedding Party - Help!

    Definitely some great ideas! It is true that most packages in the hotel will be aimed towards 10-30 people. So if you are planning to go over this amount there is usually an extra fee per person. But still very manageable and still will save money in the end. Usually off the resort you need to consider atleast $100/person for food/drink. If you ever have any questions let me know and I will be happy to help!

    Mayan 2015 Loving All The Threads And Ideas

    Great choice. I think the Reef Coco Beach is a special jewel that not many brides know about but it is one of my personal favs, I actually have 2 weddings there in October. It is a fabulous hotel with fabulous staff and food and overall great attention to detail for the wedding. If you ever need any assistance or advice on something in particular I am always here to help! Planning a wedding can be quite the undertaking and I salute all the brides who take it on in their spare time!

    Where Do I Start - Planning Oct 15 Wedding

    Hi! Definitely I think you should think about a budget and location first, the budget is important because different countries carry different costs and that will affect how far your budget will stretch. Then once you have decided on a location you can think about venues, and the details, where your guests will stay. If you ever need any help or advice I am always available. Also, October is not necessarily a bad month to get married. I think weather wise any date in the Caribbean can bring risk of rain or storm. October actually can be a great month because it is low season, meaning low priced hotels and more available suppliers to choose from! I wish you the best in your planning process!

    2015 Bride - Help!

    Hi! The only real chapel in Playa del Carmen with an ocean view is the one of 5th Avenue, but it is pretty small so keep that in mind. That being said, there ARE some very romantic and large Chapels in the center of the city that you could consider however would not be ocean view. If you are interested in more info let me know and I will be happy to help! Happy Planning!
  10. Hi Krystin! Congratulations, believe me, we all suffer during the hot months here in Mexico. But where are you thinking of getting married? Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican? In Riviera Maya there are many sheltered places that you can get married in while still enjoying a view of the water. Just depends on what country you are looking for. Let me know and maybe I can help! Happy Planning!

    When To Book Vendors

    Don`t wait. I already have 2 weddings that weekend so imagine the rest of the Riviera Maya! Always better to book sooner especially if you have your heart set on someone in particular to offer the service. If you ever need any help or advice feel free to let me know!

    Clueless Canadian Bride

    Hi! Congratulations, you are going to have so much fun and in the end it will all be worth it. If you are ever looking for help, as a wedding planner here in the Riviera Maya I would be more than happy to assist (my secret weapon is my Assistant from Manitoba, Canada haha). I am always here to help and I wish you nothing but the best, happy planning!
  13. HI! Yes there will be an officiant. To the guests it will look exactly like a normal ceremony with the vows, exchanging of the rings, signing of paper, but it is just not legal. A civil ceremony you need a judge from the civil registry and symbolic you just have an officiant. Not much difference though. If you ever have any more questions let me know and I will be happy to help!
  14. There are 3 Catholic Churches in Playa del Carmen that I would reccommend. 5th Avenue 15th Ave and 12th Street And...if you are REALLY looking for a big beautiful Catholic Church there is one in the more local area of Playa but gorgeous and BIG! Let me know if you need any assistance and I will be happy to help.
