  1. Hi guys! Just wanted to share some of our photos and video from our wedding at the palace January, 2016, its been a crazy few months after the wedding and haven't had much time to post any reviews or updates yet, but will try to soon. The wedding was amazing, photos by Bicoastal Images were great (see my review) My only regret was worrying so much leading up to the wedding (due to horrible communication) but it all really does work out perfectly! Happy Planning and if you have any questions let me know. Heres a link to our video preview clip: and some of our photos: https:
  2. Thanks Taraw! I'll be sure to post lots of pics and tell you guys about it, this forum has been great! @@jackiet2016 I have the list of guitar songs I can email it to you if you like? @@TaraW it looks like your wc is really on top of this with suggesting the guitarist can play liaise the list, mine didn't even mention that she just sent the list I picked a few from the list and 1 not from the list and just yesterday she said she sent it to the guy! So hopefully he can play it. You also had a few different songs than what I had, so weird lol. The communication in the last 2 weeks have
  3. Hi! Can't specificaly answer your question but we are having our honeymoon in Tulum and I did a lot of research through trip advisor to find our honeymoon hotel-Nueva Vida de Ramiro- which hosts small weddings and large weddings, I remember reading a review recently of a bride who had their wedding there with 70 guests and had an amazing time. So if you don't get a lot of responses here try the trip advisor- Tulum forum and look up that hotel . I have no idea what prices would be for the wedding, but guest rooms are affordable. good luck!
  4. great thread, so many good songs. We ended up choosing "Tenerife sea by Ed Sheeran" and we are doing some dance lessons! We'll be dancing in the sand so not sure how well that will go! lol anyone else do their first dance in the sand how did you find it??
  5. Hi @@TaraW, its been crazy thats forsure, but we finally got our new location finalized at the coral beach at the palace. The manager Lupita finally called me yesterday and we got it sorted out, but we were left in the dark for over a week wondering whats going on. Anyways It should be a pretty location as well, but i've come to realize I will just have to go with the flow, and what really matters is we are getting married and all of our friends and family are making this journey all the way to mexico for us. Anyways countdown is on now and I can't wait!! only 9 more days until the big day!
  6. I agree with the Facebook idea. We mailed save the dates after we put our deposit, our group also had 90 days so right away we sent save the dates, which was super simple just made one on Microsoft publisher like a photo size and got it developed at Walmart photo centre for cheap. Then we also did a Facebook event and most people responded there about going or not and it has been a great place for everyone to talk about the trip and ask questions and get excited! Also did regular invites from wedding paper divas and they were perfect ,
  7. Thanks @@Moments That Matter just wondering which beach location that last photo is with the ceremony with blue chair ties?
  8. Hi Everyone!! I also had change in WC, we have Yasmin currently and before that Aurea but there was a long lapse in between hearing from the new one and Yasmin has been good to work with just slow to respond. So anyays planning was good going and our wedding is in 2.5 weeks but we ran into our first major wedding problem! ahhhh SO our wedding date is Jan.19 and apparently there is this country concert with luke bryan happening the weekend after my wedding, the resort failed to tell me this, now have to move my ceremony that I was excited to have on Playa Azul. I actually found out al
  9. So exciting!! The countdown is on for us too!! We have many people going with us that have never even been to Mexico so I've also been thinking about a list so far. Tips for newbies? -Bring a bubba or travel mug -Get pesos early at home -Pack lots of extra sunscreen, it's so pricey if you run out! - for resort pool/ocean it is fun to bring a cheap floaty to relax -tell your guests to meet your group outside by bus, at airport after security go straight outside and don't get stopped by timeshare sharks or cab people. If I think of more I'll add , these just came to mind right aw
  10. Thank you for sharing with us, it will be perfect !
  11. HI @@JJ785220! Congrats and welcome to the forum! As you can see Barcelo if a very popular resort and is a beautiful place with one of the best beaches I have seen, I have been to this resort a few years ago. If you have narrowed down to a few resorts then you are on the right path, but like a lot of people will say on here picking the resort is the hardest part. If you haven't already, you should definitely get a travel agent right away to help you with costs, planning and they will help you secure your wedding date and will be very helpful!! For most packages you don't need to pu
  12. Hi! @@Stephanie2015 do you remember how long your hair and make up took at the spa? What type of make up did they use? Did you just tell them what you wanted or bring pictures? Also is there other things at the spa for the bridal party to hang out like hottub or anything?? Or does anyone else have tips on the spa ? Thanks !
