I just noticed you are the May 6th bride!!  Have you picked your ceremony and reception location yet?

 


 


We're doing our ceremony on the sky deck.  I was planning for a beach reception, but I'm still not sure!  What did you have in mind for yours?

Awesome!! Let us know how it goes :)

It didn't come with the ribbon, so I'm going to buy one separately.  Not sure what color yet...

I will definitely PM you with all the details.  Just remember that I got this dress at the Brides Against Breast Cancer charity, so it's been worn before... and it's past season.  I think the style is called Bella, maybe you can find it online!

We are doing beach ceremony and Zavas Plaza reception.  I think Nikki is planning to do the same as you on the 7th! 

 

I'll have to make sure my FI doesnt see you walking around in that dress...cause I can hear him now..."why didn't you wear something like that!!"  :)

I'm considering changing our reception site to Zavaz Plaza.  I'd love to see any pics if any of the married ladies would like to share how it was all set up!

We're doing a beach ceremony, and had original thought a beach reception....but FI wants to have the reception in the patio area of the Mexician restaurant! Which I love...this was mine first choice, but they told us a maximum of 40-45 guests....and I think we might be over that number. So I am now changing plans to be a the Zavas Plaza as well! smile123.gif

Thanks for posting this :) Just emailed my TA...not sure she is a GI WC...but it's worth a shot.  I know they offered something similar to this for 2010 brides....but only if you were getting married in 2010...not for booking then....

So...hopefully....she can get this for me :)

I think there are 2 (maybe 3) options for beach reception.  Do you know how many guests you will have?  I can take pictures of both locations just in case.

 

 

Hey Jamie, when you're there, can you check out the Palapa Yoga spot?  My FI said he kind of liked that spot for the reception.  I had pretty much decided Zavaz but I'm still open to another spot.  I emailed my WC to see if they set the tables  up around the yoga spot or on it, so we will see.  I'm thinking the beach may be a bit cooler than the Zavaz Plaza spot.

It will be great to meet you girls!  We will be there through the 5th.  Then, Harry and I are switching to an adults only resort for 2 nights.  :o)

Sweet!  This resort won't know what to do with our crazy crews!  My FI just warned his friends that they have to behave between certain hours on the wedding day!  Ha ha.

 I got married on Zavas plaza deck!  There are two though, I think.  A smaller one and a larger one.  There was only 14 of us in total, so we had the smaller area and decided to have both our Cocktail reception and evening reception in the same place.  As there was only 14 of us, we arranged for them to have all sit at one large table, so we wouldn't have to pick and choose who would be at the top table with us.

The photos are only snaps taken by family and friends, so aren't the greatest, but hopefully gives you an idea of what it will look like.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
