Hello all ~ I'm a newbie


We just got engaged in November 06 smile123.gif We want to have our DW in August 07, in Playa del Carmen. I'm having issues with deciding on a hotel...!!


We went to a wedding in July 07 at Royal Porto Real. The wedding was absolutly prefect!!!! We REALLY would like to go back and have our wedding there, but we don't want our friends to think we're copying them. PLUS we would be inviting all of the same friends.


Do I have it there, or should we find another location??

If you were to do it at the same hotel, how could you make it unique/different? Like beach ceremony instead of poolside, different menu, decor, etc.

Oh boy, that a tough one! Tammy's list of other great AI adults only resorts is good. As everyone probably knows by now I am partial to the El Dorado Royale, I would definitly check those out. Maybe check out Aventura Spa Palace also.


It really depends on how much you care about yours and your friends wedding similarities. Like Janet said, I would definitly try to do some opposite effects at your wedding. Like she used beach you use gazebo, etc... The last thing you want is it to be so similar that people are comparing, which weather we like it or not, people do tend to do this.

Welcome! It sounds like you already have all the help you need. Good luck in finding the best hotel! As for "copying" your friend, it could be that your friend takes it as a compliment!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
