Is anyone doing this or have talked to Jacy about this??
We havn't really gotten into the details yet. We are thinking about having the buffett dinner in the gazebo. I think(maybe someone who has been there can clarify) that baracuda bar is nearby. I thought we could do apps and cocktail hour there while they set up the dinner service?

I really was not going to go into the details with Jacy until about end of March. It so hard deciding on things when you haven't actually been to the spot. Most likley I will buy chair sashes, table runners, lanterns and draping so that if we use the gazebo for any part of the cermony/reception I'll be covered. If we decide to do things on the beach only we can decorate the arch with the draping.

I really still have so many questions, but kind of got the impression that its too early to decide on things. BUT you girls seem to be planning these things so I dont know.....blush2.gif

I don't think its too early to think about it... but I really don't think Jacy cares this far ahead. I think for her its easier to just decide everything once we are there or close to the date.

 

On another note... Still no word from Jacy or the GM regarding my email that I sent almost 2 weeks ago.

Bianca have you tried to email Gaby at all? She is the chief concierge down there and was very helpful to me when we were visiting

Hi,

 

I've noticed a lot of girls have had to change their mind about this resort because the prices have gone up, If things go up.. they must come down right? When did you book yours and was it a good deal? Did you find that your price quotes were comparable? I just don't want to ask my guest to spend TOO much money.

 

Some other questions.

1. Did you book through a charter flight?

2. Did you book through your airline?

3. For Canadian brides, were you able to get a Canadian quote?

 

I havn't booked mine yet and alittle hesitant if they prices are going to go down.. do you know when the prices go down? if at all?

Any info you can share will help :) thank you

I finally heard back from the GM at DPA. I should get answers to my questions sometime today hopefully... I went on a (online) shopping spree this weekend :)

I got my OOT bags, cake topper, swarovski crystals to decorate it. I think thats it... It felt like a lot more.

Glad that you got a response (FINALLY) Bianca! Plus how fun that you picked up your bags and other goodies for the wedding...What kind of bags did you go with?

 

Rainfall --Welcome! I am not sure how US prices and procedures differ from Canada. There have been a couple Canadian brides that have posted on this thread, so hopefully they will chime in!

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
