I introduced myself quite a while back, however it was during the large influx of new brides and I have not posted since. However, I have followed the forum quite frequently and wanted to thank everyone for sharing their experiences, they have been extremely helpful throughout my planning and have usually answered my questions/concerns before they were asked.

Sammysgirl- Less than 1 week away, that is so exciting! That's a bummer about your hair, have faith I have seen many disasters turnout okay after waiting a few days then going through a second process. Is this the first time you have gone blonde with this hairdresser? I am a little nervous too about my hair appointment being 4 days prior to us leaving because the best made plans can still have bumps in the road, however I have been going to the same hairdresser for more than 5 years and I am sure things will be fine. I canâ€t wait to hear you review on the mariachi band. I am undecided on the music for the ceremony and cocktail hour.

Wanted to ask past/current RPRM brides if they shipped any favors or décor to Playa del Carmen for the wedding or asked Aelâ€s opinion about it?

Anyone have pictures of Chiliâ€s where the semi-private reception dinner is held? Just wanted to get a better idea about the décor and how much/little I should add to it.

Odd question but does anyone know (past brides) if the ceremony chair backs are made from metal? It looks like a standard metal folding chair in the pictures I have seen where you can see them through the white chair cover. I was just wondering because I wanted to make these hanging starfish for the aisle chairs and was thinking of another way to secure them besides the raffia.

Hi ladies, can i ask is it Juan Carlos who is the onsite photog?

 

Anyway These are the photo packages we have been quoted from my TA :

 

* $350 20 Pix or $450 20 Pix + Video

* $450 30 Pix or $550 30 Pix + Video

* $550 40 Pix or $650 40 Pix + Video

 

Im unsure if these are good or not, Now we will be using the onsite photog regardless as we just cant afford to take in an outside vendor, and if it is Juan Carlos than i would be happy as i have been to his website and i like what i see. Now i dont know if it vary's for the photog how much he charges different prices or packages from wedding too wedding or what? I dont know if anyone can help me here?

 

I have emailed juan carlos asking if it is him who is the resort photog and his packages, i did get a mail back saying they were busy and would email me a price list later but that was a while ago and this is just something i need to budget for.

 

Also are the prices i quoted good?

 

Thanks xox

Sorry ladies im hijacking this thread a wee bit today but please can someone tell me is this the LEGAL ceremony script they use at the RPRM for those of you who have had a LEGAL ceremony?

 

Mexican Civil Marriage Advices

 

Ladies and gentlemen, according to the laws of this country we are gathered here to join the bonds of Matrimony which is an honorable status:

 

_____________ (groom) and _______________________ (bride)

 

Seeing it is a very important act, I would kindly ask everybody to remain in silence.

As witnesses of this important act, there are present here:

 

1. ____________________________ 2. _______________________

 

3. ____________________________ 4. _______________________

 

Who will sign the marriage document.

 

A great Mexian philosopher of the nineteenth century, Mr. Melchor Ocampo, wrote in his legendary letter, the following words that until today are always read in our

wedding ceremonies, "marriage", it says is the only legal and moral way to found a family, to preserve mankind and avoid imperfections of the human being who are only able to obtain the perfection of the human race through matrimony in a conjugal duality. Men and women have the same rights, but it is important to observe their respective obligations. Both of you should have respect, fidelity, trust and assistance to one another and also tenderness and love, much love. Do not fight with one another, use your heads and your hearts to correct something wrong.

Both of you should be aware of the great responsibility of being parents, because you should provide your children with attention, good example to follow during the rest of their lives. I now ask two questions to your witnesses.

 

1. Are ________________ (groom) and __________________ (bride) persons you know well?

2. And are there any objections for them to be joined in legal marriage in Mexico?

 

__________________ (groom) do you accept ____________________ (bride) as your beloved and wedded wife, __________________ (bride) do you accept _____________ (groom)

as your beloved and wedded husband?

 

_________________ (groom) and __________________ (bride) after ratifying your wish to get legally married by means of your signature and your witnesses' signature and in the presence of your family and friends in the name of the law and the society and with the authority from the Solidaridad Municipal, here in Quintana Roo, Mexico, I now declare you husband and wife.

 

You may kiss the bride.

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS!

 

 

Playa del Carmen, Solidaridad, Quintana Roo. The _____________ (day/month) of _________ (year)

 

El C. Oficial 07 del Registro Civil.

Ive read that this may need to be included in the ceremony? if not does anyone have a copy of what it is at the RPRM?

 

Thanks again :-)

 

xoxo

Good luck Sammys! Can't believe your hair situation. I'd be steaming!!

I'm sure it will be fine... maybe get there early so they won't mess up your legal ceremony. Have an amazing time in Playa! Already can't wait for pics and the review! :-)

 

Yea.. about the bikini wax. Let's just say I got a "brazilian" done once. Two words: never again.

 

Well... going to keep myself busy on my weekend...

Got the supplies to make my sample invitation!

 

Will play around with the materials a bit... and I'll take pics. You all will have to let me know which ones you like most!

 

Alrighty.. until next time!

Nicola-Sorry I'm at work right now and can't pull up the email with my price quote from the Riu for Juan Carlos. I believe those prices sounds about right. I know I had options for more longer sessions and more photos (those price quotes were in ~1200 I think). You need to find out for how long those photo sessions are for b/c the ones that were very expensive were for only the ceremony (a few hours)??

 

Sorry I can't help you on the wedding script.
