Congrats @@BecomingaRiggio! Thanks for sharing!

 

I haven't considered Plaza Zocalo until you mentioned it. You said it's more intimate? It looks so big in your photos! I'm currently booked at Zavas but I'm interested in a more intimate space, especially if its also cooler. I'll have 3 or 4 tables so I don't want the space to look too empty. It looks like Zocalo comfortably fits a lot more tables from your pics. How did you find it more intimate?

Hi @@HolaAmigos! The 2 days prior to the wedding were partly cloudy and hot. But wedding day not one cloud and it felt even more hot and humid. It wasnt too bad on the Sky Deck cause we had a breeze but the sun was still shining bright at 530pm.

 

I wasnt melting in my dress until we started to party.. we ended up getting the little hand towels from the spa to cool off. ($1 a towel). I saw a video where i was wiping sweat from my forehead. Luckily i decided against spanx and any indergarmets that would be hard to put back on w sweat.. it was dripping down my legs too.

 

Unfortunately, i drank a bit much and i remember the evening in patches. I was told that I had a wonderful time!

@@blushxo, Hi!! I still like Zavas, but i fell in love with the Zocalo. It has swinging chairs and beds that make it very loungy and sexy..they couldnt stay for my reception but im sure they could keep them if you asked. That would take up some of your space. I meant it seemed more intimate beacuse it has a hedge that encircles the Zocalo. It near the restaurant and so there is more space between the venue and guest rooms. Either location is great..but Zocalo was exactly what i envisoned in my head.

@@carrieandsam - Sorry I totally missed your question from earlier.  We arrive on the 15th - our guests are coming on the 17th. Then a bunch of us are staying the week.

 

@@BecomingaRiggio - Congrats!  Everything looks amazing - love your dress and your reception location! 

 

Does anyone have any info on the beach private events locations?  We're looking for a flat beach surface (my grandmother recently broke her hip and isn't overly mobile) where we can put out tiki torches and have a low key private event....any insight on the difference between Beach Building 3 and Palapa Yoga (other than the wooden structure) would be great.

Thanks in advance!

I want to buy a house next year (and I live in LA $$$) so Im saving where I can by doing crafts. I got these little plates and stands at the cent store, I painted over what was on them with White paint then cut out #'s I printed from online and covered the whole plate in mod podge. If you need to stay on budget, enlist a crafty friend and go nuts!!

Ugh ladies, please don't go overboard drinking. You will regret it. Amd give yourselves at least 2 hrs back in your room after the salon to unwind and take a minute to eat. Make a list of family members you want in ur pics. I dont remember taking a big family shot. Even a shot of us in sky deck.

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
