Nice cake! It's better than the ones others have had.

 

Can u plz tell me more about your wedding package along with the pool side pricing? Did u pay for pool bar set up? DJ? Thanks

 

 

 

 

I had a symbollic ceremony, so I'm not sure if that changes things regarding the wedding package. It cost me $1275 USD for the wedding package, which I believe is the only option available for symbollic ceremony (unless you've requested for another package specifically for their features). I think it's called the Remember Package. 

 

For the poolside reception, it was from 8-11pm. We paid for the following:

"A private pool party with a cost of 1020 USD per 40 people max and 3hrs of special drinks (pina colada, margaritas, sparkling wine, beers) and obviously shots, as well as drinks you were able to get from the bars on the resort and special illumination and 1 microphone and speakers to connect your ipod and decorated too with chairs and high tables."

 

However, as I may have mentioned in previous posts, it was raining on the night of my wedding, so we were moved indoors. I just checked the Wedding Service Addendum that was signed on the day of my meeting with Jazmin, and it stated that in case of bad weather, we were moved to the Casa Club on the Sian Kaan section. 

 

I didn't really need the speakers and all that because I had hired DJ Bob for the wedding and he brought his own equipment. So this option did not include the resort DJ.

awe, :( i was hoping that wasnt the case :( I figure if all 26 of us went to any of the other restaurants on any other day we could sit as a group and order what we want.. I understand its probably easier for them to do it that way.. but not easier for me :(

Is that because for a one week stay each person gets 3 restaurant nights... and with a wedding techinically they get 4? because the wedding night doesnt count against a restaurant meal?

Welcome to the forum!

 

I'm getting married on 25th January so getting very excited now! Not long now!!

 

Unfortunately you do need to choose for everyone, I tried to please most of my guests by choosing what I know would be there preferred starter and others there favourite so no one dislikes the whole meal.

 

Also Ive read here that the wedding meal does count as one of the 3 al la carte meals for the week : ( I'd double check though.

The wedding meal does indeed count as one of the three meals.

That really sucks!! so technically people coming down get shafted! If i were any other person i would pay the same price and get three restaurant meals, now that the people are coming down for a wedding they get three restaurant meals but one is taken up by a set menu chosen by someone else... just seems shady! I wonder if there is any way around that.. or am i just being picky?

Well, they are coming down specifically for your wedding.  It's not like they were coming down for a vacation and then happen to go to your wedding where you're taking away from their vacation time. 

I don't think your guests will be upset at all by this.

Hi,

 

I have a small party, Jazmin told me that groups of less than 15 can just order off the menu.

Yes, I do believe that is true. Small groups are easier to accommodate.

I think the wedding meal does count as one of the a la cartes for the week. At least ours does. We are also having our meal at Dolce Vita when we get married this March. I expressed my disappointment at only having one main course choice for the 60 people we have coming. That just seemed ridiculous. Our WC said we could choose two mains bc of the number of people, so you could always try to negotiate that? I am working with Jazmin though, not Eugina. I can tell you that we gave our guests the choice of chicken or salmon (as well as the vegetarian option which is the pasta) and 90% of our guests chose the chicken. Maybe go with that if you can't get an extra choice but let your guests know there is a pasta option as well?

Hi there some of my guests wanted fish instead of meat so I have said they are vegetarian. Jazmin has now asked me for their names so I will just give her a list. My mother in law only eats chicken no red meat and some just prefer fish.

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
