We usually take about $100 each in singles for tips and then $200-250 in larger bills each. Then, we try and use our credit cards as much as possible to avoid flashing a lot of cash. We plan to go to Playa Del Carmen for shopping next week. I was in Cancun several years ago and have not wanted to return. But, it's probably a lot nicer now. I just remember a bunch of drunken American college students. If you have credit or debit cards, you should not have many problems. But, avoid using the ATM machines at most hotels. They charge an exorbitant exchange rate. Jenny

Wow, I just found this forum and it is amazing! I am getting married either October 4 or 5 and still haven't settled on a resort yet - I'm debating between Azul Sensatori and Sandos Playacar. I was wondering if anyone on this thread also considered both of these venues and could give me feedback on your decision to go with Azul Sensatori. Basically, Azul Sensatori seems to be more expensive per room (therefore more expensive for the guests) but it seems to come with a lot of perks, including a free private event (the wedding reception!!) if you book 16 rooms or more. On the other hand, from this thread I've noticed that Azul Sensatori charges a looot for extras. Sandos Playacar has really great room prices and a great beach, but the wedding and reception works out to be a lot more. If anyone has any wisdom to share, I would really appreciate it. I'm obviously already behind - wedding in 5 months and no venue yet!

Hi Im getting married April 9, 2014!

 

Im bringing my own fabric sheers because paying $150 per sheet is insane. 

We only have 22 ppl going so im picking the "pre made tables" I just dont want the hassle of carrying everything on the plane.

I also found this website that you can order in bulk and you get free shipping if you dont mind waiting for your order a month or so. http://www.aliexpress.com

 

Im going to get the paper lanterns and LED lights and maybe the "welcome/thank you" gifts.

 

Let me know if you need any help we can brainstorm together!

Has anyone ever got married in May/June? How much was it per guest (2 per room)? Also, when is the best time to book to get the best rate? We are looking at approx. 30 guests.

Here is a picture of our Tears of Joy Envelopes that will be on each chair at the Wedding Ceremony.

 

It's just small envelopes that I took to Kinko's and had the image printed directly on them. The total cost for envelope, printing and tissue is $1.04. The printing was the most expensive part.
