Hi past and future brides!
My husband (sounds so weird) and I got back Sunday night from our wedding/mini-honeymoon. I will eventually do a full review but wanted to be available if anyone has any questions. Just send me a message. Our wedding was very different from a lot of weddings that are mentioned on this website, simply because my now-husband is Mexican and we incorporated a lot of traditions from both the US and Mexico.
Our WC was Jacqueline Ochoa - she was FABULOUS! I cried when I had to leave her.
Our DJ was Discomovil - they did whatever we asked and were fantastic - spoke both English and Spanish to accommodate ALL of our guests.
Our Photographer was Take It Foto (Lupe and Augustin) - two fantastic people! And we cannot wait to see our pictures!
Our Videographer was Ricardo from Cinematik (not to be confused with Cinematic) - firstname.lastname@example.org - we should have a sneak peak in less than 3 weeks!
Our florist was Eduardo from Florera Jardn - flowers were better than expected and we got extras (at no expense)... although 1 day before our wedding we went to Playa del Carmen and found a guy selling the same flowers for cheaper and more beautiful... so we ordered a bunch from him too - Floreria Iris (there are several in Playa del carmen - but we suggest the one near the corner of 30 and 64)
We were at the Barcelo from January 10-16, wedding on the 14 and went to The Royal Playa Del Carmen from January 16-20. The Royal Playa del Carmen was one of our top 3 choices and I'm SO GLAD we chose the Barcelo over the Royal.
My biggest regret was not being more upfront with the priest- he totally hijacked our wedding, he started 15 minutes late and ended 45 minutes late... we lost 1 (of 2) hour of picture taking with makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it. We were running to the beach to get pictures before the sun went down. He was talking about all kinds of inappropriate things. Also we did the catholic wedding for my husband's family (who are mexican) and he did the majority (like 95%) in English.
