Does anyone have feedback/experience on the spa there for hair and makeup? Not sure if I want to use them or go to PDC?
Great idea for the list of dates. I can't wait! We have 30 people booked now and I think that will be about it.

We are all booked at the Royal Club - Has anyone stayed on this side of the resort?

I have been looking around at different locations and have totally fallen in love with the "park" part of XCaret. Does anyone have pricing on doing the reception there?

Cheers!

I was told by the wedding coordinator at OGX that the gazebo was the only location to do the ceremony. I would be very surprised (and a bit upset) if others were told something different...

Xcaret Eco Park is right next to the resort and it is possible to get married there. They actually have a beautiful outdoor chapel. At some point I saw pics of a wedding that used the chapel and had the reception in the most beautiful grotto (also in the park). As far as I know the resort doesn't have anything to do with the park, so you would need to book the wedding seperately from the resort. I will try to dig up the link to the pics. It is SO beautiful.

Also, I made it clear to Marialma originally that we wanted to be married on the beach and not in the gazebo. If they have told you guys that this is not possible then I will have to confirm with her and my TA.

Hmm...

We actually looked into having our ceremony at the Eco Park; however, it was just too expensive for us.
I'm O.K. with having our ceremony in the gazebo; the location is very nice and pictures I've seen of other weddings there look beautiful. I'm not sure if we were told this was the only location because it actually IS the only location they have, or because any other potential location is being used by another wedding group that day. More power to you if you were able to swing a beach wedding there! Best of luck with your planning!

my fiance and i are preparing for a june 11 2010 wedding at the ogx. like others, our only concern is the beach. sometimes its nice to take a long walk along the beach and of coarse the ogx has a short cove to walk around. i wander if you can walk along the rocky beach and see anything prettyhuh.gif i hear the turqouis blue water of the riviera maya is amongst the most beautiful and im scared we will be objected to that by this man made beach. but anyhow our gut says to stay with it cause the resort itself seems fantastic. has anyone tried taking a walk along the rocky beach to see whats beyond the resorthuh.gif??

Marialma told me that because the beach was so small, it was not possible to get married on the beach. But I thought I had seen pictures of people that had gotten married on a grassy garden-y area. I also had wanted to get married on the beach, but I think the gazebo is soooo cute I'm happy with it as well.. Plus, you can now wear heels now that you're not in the sand. :)

Hi-

I was married there in June. You can get your dress pressed at the resort. I did not so I cant speak to the quality of the service. I had a private reception at the beach club and it was great. We loved it so much that we extended the reception an additional hour. We rented a speaker to hook up to my ipod for like $50, and one of my guests was the mc. The only problem was my heels kept getting caught in between the planks of the deck. It was very windy which kept the guests cool. My legs were a bit hot under my dress though but I think it was worth it to be so close to the ocean.

There is the address to look at my professional pics on photobucket. You can see the girl who did my hair who was great. She is from the spa at the resort and the girl who did my sisters hair who was not so fabulous as her hair was falling out in the room before the wedding. My hair was falling out after the wedding but with such high humidity and the wind I accepted it as being a downfall of the beautiful location. You can also see the reception site. Hope this helps.

The park looks amazing and the photos people have from there are gorgeous! But it does seem a bit expensive. Some people will just use the chapel there for the ceremony and photos, then go back to the resort for the reception. Here's the 2010 price lists that they sent to me:

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
