Oes anyone have an update on the palapa at playa azul and know if its still standing or has been repaired?

It was not there when I was there in January 2013 and I had been there in January 2012 so I knew where it was but now it didn't look like it had ever been there.

Hello Brides :)

Did anyone opt out of live music during the ceremony and just used their ipod/mp3 player? (our ceremony will be on the beach).  My fiance has it stuck in his mind for some reason that he doesnt want live music....Just wondering if anyone did this and what the outcome was or how good it sounded.  Thanks for the help!

That's crazy!! I specifically requested the Palapa, and my wedding coordinator said no problem- we've been having issues with her ever since we switched our package from the Strawberry Passion to the Air Transat package...oh gosh, I hope that we'll have some sort of wedding location when we show up!

We used an ipod and it sounded great.  We asked for the violin (which was then not available the day of the wedding) and instead got a flute to just play while people were milling around waiting for the bridal party to show up.  Then we used the ipod for our processional, recessional, cocktail hour, and reception.

When we were there in October, Claudia told us that the resort does not plan on replacing the Palapa.  Apparently it was removed because it was rotting and because it is so windy on that beach, it was a safety hazard.  We were initially concerned about it not being there, but the beach is still beautiful and is more secluded than some of the others.

Carry your dress on for sure.  It gets a lot of attention and makes airline staff a little nicer to you.  We traveled with all of our stuff (OOT bags, favors, decorations, etc) and just had it all spread out in our checked luggage.  Just make sure you carry receipts for everything.

I did the same. Carried my dress on and just laid it across in the overhead bins (I have heard if they have room in the flight attendents closet they will hang it for you but they said no to me, I fly Frontier). Either way I was going to get my dress steamed the day of the wedding so it didn't really matter, but wasn't going to risk getting it lost in the checked luggage!

 

We ended up having 4 suitcases. 2 were wedding stuff and we checked all but one suitcase (we always have a carryon with a some clothes for each of us just in case something happens to the bags).

 

I made the mistake of not saving my receipts and read a lot of people saying things on here and it made me nervous! But customs was a breeze and had absolutely no questions coming or going.

 

Good luck and congrats!

What is the reason behind saving the receipts for everything? I'm not sure I have all them :confused:

Hello Brides,

 

I am still deciding on my dinner menu, and I'm thinking of having surf and turf but ordering an extra platter of another variety of food from the menu to give my guests a little bit more variety, I'm wondering if anyone has done this and if it cost extra?

 

Also, I have about 6 guests who don't eat seafood, yet I want to have the surf and turf, if any of you have chose that option, were the guests that don't eat seafood allowed to just have the beef without lobster tail?

 

Thanks :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
