I was hoping that someone who has already had their wedding or been for a site visit, can put me at ease.  I had planned to have my reception at Zavas Plaza, but unfortunately, it never got reserved and is being used by another bride.  As I don't want the wedding on the beach and or completely inside, my wedding coordinator has reserved Zavas Terrace instead.  I have about 70 guests attending and she has assured me that this space will accommodate all, including a dance floor.  Any observations you have about this location for a reception would be appreciated.  I'm also not crazy about the color scheme (yellow and red) and have heard mixed reviews that there is little or no breeze.  I'll take all the good and the bad, so don't hold back.  I would prefer to be prepared and not completely disappointed.  Am I over thinking the negatives of this location?

 

If you're thinking red/yellow, I think you might mean Zoloco Terrace, and I was told it fits maximum 40 people.

 

If it's Zavas Terrace, there is really no color scheme. It's the front section of the premium pool area on stone. (if you look at the map, it's just beside the Zavas restaurant over a bridge. It's breezy because it's right beside the walk to the beach. We had a cocktail reception there for 63 guests and there was plenty of room. I think this will be a pretty place for a reception. Only thing to keep in mind, there is really no where for you to hang decorations in this location....so plan for items on the tables or something that can stand on it's own. Here are a few photos...hope that helps.

We just booked our honeymoon at Be Tulum in Tulum about an hour South of PDC. I have been there a few times - best beaches in the Mayan Riviera, a lot more intimate as there are only a few cabana hotels and no monsters - VERY ROMANTIC and a real feel of Mexico.  I hear Mezzanine on that same strip is also great and is more affordable but I went for the splurge as I am hoping I will only have to do this once! :)  That is unless we do the renewal ceremonies like Seal & Heidi Klum ;)

Videographer advice please!

 

Bryteyed Bride - CONGRATS, great photo of you on the Beach.

Mel and Bryteeyed Bride, I am waiting with baited breath to hear how things went.

 

I am having a really hard time picking vendors as Lomas is being really picky with whom they will allow in and I have spoken to several vendors who are complaining about ow Lomas is strong arming them into either high commissions, which forces them to raise their prices or locking them out.  Supposedly this happened with the Barcelo & Bahia Principe a while back and they suffered the consequences.

 

Bryteyedbride - how was Caribe Video?  I am really torn about who to hire for videography - there are very few posts about videographers - can someone who had a successful videography experience please weigh in? Magic Vision has no demos on their site and Cancun Video doesn't have anything recent from AS or AB...

 

Mel - I thought that Karisma banned La Luna as they are part of Del Sol, is this not the case?  If I can't get La Luna, I am thinking of Juan Navarro or Claudia for pics...Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
