@@cvincent84 Thank you so much for the thorough response! I hadn't even thought about using an outside DJ! With just over a month to go I'm nervous and don't want to make any big changes, so I think I'll stick with the resort DJ. I am definitely considering the styling trio :) I'm leaning towards nixing the official cocktail hour and mariachi band, and going to the lobby bar like you suggested. It seems like a lot of people stuck with that plan and it was fine. I'm wondering if I could get the acoustic guitarist to play at the bar for the hour? (Wonder what THAT charge is....).

 

 

 

 

We are planning on a beach ceremony (Capitan Morgan?) and poolside reception (Cocos?)..but having not been there and basing the decision off one photo is tough! Anyone have any suggestions on best beach and poolside locations? I'm also wondering if there is any type of overhead for the poolside or if its all in the open.. there would be no need for hanging decorations then ;) If anyone can share photos of their setup/decor for ceremony on the beach or poolside reception I would be SO appreciative! I've been scouring the different photography sites trying to get little bits and pieces :) Also- how did you all take care of handing out welcome bags? We are bringing them, but the resort charges $3 per bag to deliver for you (huh??). 

 

Thanks again!! Loving reading through all the replies previously!

 

 

No problem! I bet you could hire the guitar player. He was super good, but no idea on the price. I'm sure it's more expensive then what you would think but for sure cheaper then a mariachi band! I'm SURE the resort DJ will be fine. I would recommend getting a list of song you want played, if they are playing music you like they can't go too wrong!

 

Instead of having the resort hand out bags as people came in, why don't you just deliver them your self? You'll be seeing everyone at one point or another anyway! The resort has a fee for everything...geesh. I got married at the Palace so I can't say much about the Maya locations but I can't think of how they would hang anything near the pool. But who knows!

 

I posted this before but if anyone wants to see my pictures from my wedding in June at the Palace, just my friends and family photos right now, feel free to add me my on Facebook - Chelsea McFarlane (Vincent). :) Just send me a quick message saying your from here and I'll add you.

We are bringing our own ipod for both the ceremony and the reception. We aren't adding any time to our reception as we figure we will all move to the lobby bar then to Jaguars Disco for more dancing for those who want to. 

 

Out of all the beaches I would say Playa Azul and Captain Morgan have the best sand.  Playa Azul is definitely the most private but Captain Morgan is at least more secluded from Colonial, Tropical and Palace. There is a peninsula that separates the beaches of those 3 and the beaches of Beach and Caribe (where Capt Mo is). Coco Bar is at the Palace and is quite a large area which is nice and at night when the pool is all lit up, it is very neat. 

 

I would definitely look at handing out your own bags etc, as the costs add up.  The hotel will be able to give you a list of all the rooms, or have a night where everyone meets at the lobby bar!

@@bluecastr1 Even though I have the Strawberry Passion Package, I have hired an outside team to do my hair and makeup (read TOO many mixed reviews on the resort's salon), and it really isn't that expensive to hire an outside hair and makeup team. I am not doing a cocktail hour (but I am extending reception for 1 extra hour). I also have hired Ivan Luckie as my photographer. As for a DJ, I am still in the works of booking one (they have been slow to e-mail back!) Our reception and ceremony is going to be at Playa Azul.

Any of you also getting married next July? My big day is July 18th, 2015, and I know there's another wedding there that day. Just wondering if maybe the other bride is also a part of this forum. :)

Hi everyone!! So it's 10 days until we head down to Mexico!!! And the wedding is on oct 29 :D at 3pm!! Super excited!!!

 

I left all the flowers to finalize down there... Because it was too hard to plan based on the pictures that were sent to me, and also I am pretty set based on pictures for the palmeras beach for the reception at 5:30pm, and the grill as the backup if it's raining but the weather looks good!! And then the only thing that's undecided is where the ceremony will be. I am still unsure of the coral beach but we shall seeee!!!

 

We are bringing down our own centrepiece stuff, and topper, as well as gifts to the bridal party, and guest book, message in a bottle (advice to the bride and groom cards). Last thing we are doing is just play lists for the iPod :)

 

We are super excited!!!!! And I will be sure to post pictures and check here before our second week honeymoon and playa mujeres :)

They put candles on the tables and we had petals on ours - not sure if they always do that.  It was kind of strange because my WC came with a bag of rose petals.  Chair covers are bows - you pick the color when you arrive and I'm not sure about runners for the reception.  I had floral arrangements and the table names on each table - along with the menu.  Flying lanterns/Chinese wishing lanterns are not allowed.  We did sparklers and had no issues.  

  @@gilmana Did you purchase the sparklers in Mexico? I just called Southwest Airlines, and they said TSA prohibits fireworks/sparklers on the aircraft..I would love to bring them but I don't want to buy them and end up having them be thrown out. Any other brides bring them with?

@@bluecastr1 My parents-in-law bought them in Mexico City and brought them to the Barcelo. I understand that you wouldn't be able to take them on the plane but maybe packed in your luggage?  I would double check.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
