I know it has been a very long time since I have been on here to post due to Wedding/Christmas and our house flooding while we were on our honeymoon....I know, craaaazy! I did want to tell everyone of our wedding, which was on November 30, 2011. Plus, if you have any questions you can email me at
Then we had a few drinks with everyone at the Snack bar for about a half hour to an hour. Our dinner was at the Dolce Vita which was right close to us too, so that was nice. It was all in one little area, it felt like our own for the night. We did our speeches at dinner, our cake cutting after so that when the music came we could just dance! I made up place cards for everyone and gave our wedding coordinator a seating chart which worked out marvelous As well I had a card box in case people wanted to give us a card, as well as a guest book. These were on the same table when they arrived, then switched to the cake table. Our service was amazing, we loved all of it.....I did wish I had more to eat as all the toast's/nerves make you less hungry, as well as drinking Champagne.
We had two hours of reception, we used the DJ they supplied which was fine. No issues there, I had to pay them in cash so I gave the money to our coordinator prior to our wedding day. The place looked great, they lit it all up for you and you have dancing DJ lights. Don't waste your money on extra lighting. We had tables set up for people to sit while they were not dancing. This was the most fun I had in years, dancing with friends to all of our favorite music. It was a blast, the only thing we regret it having our reception 1 hour longer, it would have been worth the extra money! It was so so fun!!!!! We did our first dance, they could not annouce us very well so I would ask a family member to do this upon your arrival As well, if it's mega important you can have extra decorations but I loved it all without the decorations!!!! They use white lights on the trees, then white linen's with Tiffany chairs...it looks great!
We went to the main lobby and in the theatre room they always have shows, we watched then did the finale dance with them! It was fun, a little girl came up to me and said I looked like a princess and wanted to meet me! It almost made me cry, so adorable. After this, we went back to our area (Golden Club) then we ate at the snack bar as we were starving and drank a bit much and I needed food to soak up my drinks, which I am thankful I did:)
Overall it was the most beautiful wedding we could have ever imagined! Our coordinator was Eugenia, she is the sweetest and amazing and gave us tips on places to eat in Playa Del Carmen and we loved her for it! We ate at El Diez, it was the best steak I ever ate! Everyone was so helpful, we had a wonderful time Make sure to tell your bank/visa you are leaving the country, my husband did not and it caused him grief. I would suggest paying in traveller's cheques or cash it would have made our life easier. As we kept having to put portions on a cc, as our cc's have limits. Seriously ask me anything, I will definately try to be on here today and in the near future to help anyone out. I will try and post some pics too The first one someone else took, not the photographer.
