        Thanks, ladies! If I were to wait until it got close to our actual date to book these things, I would drive myself (and my fiance) crazy with how many times I'd change my mind! So as soon as I liked something, it fit our budget, and we got a good vibe from it, we booked it!

        Tifuhhknee, we've contracted Ivan Luckie as our photographer. We also have Ajua Planners as our WC and Playacar Palace as our resort. So if anyone else has any previous experience with any of these vendors, or wants any info that we come across so far, let me know!

          Hi Raychel,

          Is there a chapel on-site at Playacar Palace, or are you going elsewhere for the ceremony? We are interested in having a Catholic ceremony as well, and our TA recently sent us information that included Playacar Palace. However, I didn't see anything about a chapel.

          Also, do you know how many it fits? We are expecting 70-80 guests.

          Thank you!

            No we are going elsewhere. There is a little church on 5th ave that I fell in love with, and actually is what confirmed our decision to choose Playa del Carmen. As it turns out there are a lot of catholic ceremonies held there, in part probably because it's air conditioned! My WC said that most of their catholic brides have their wedding there. It is supposed to hold 75, yet they have comfortable had 80 in there before.

                2011 bride! I feel like ours is a little soon, we got engaged December of 09 so I feel I don't have enough time to do all I'm wanting to do. So far everything I've got going it running smooth and I haven't had any bridezilla moments yet lol. Just wanted to introduce myself as a fellow 2011 bride.

                  I finally found a Save the Date that I liked! And it just so happened to be one that doesn't tie into our Mexico wedding theme, or our colors for that matter! It was a free template though which means it came in pink so pink is what I got. The way I justify it is that we are sending them out so early, that by the time our wedding comes around no one will even remember what color our save the dates were! I guess it could be a compliment to our wedding colors

                  I'm going to have them printed through 123 Print ($15 for 100 of them!). They don't look as great here because of bad resolution, they aren't actually this fuzzy. Template was from The Wedding Chicks.

                  Welcome to the thread, bnbrmy!

                    Raychel love the STD's!! No one will notice the colors of the wedding not matching the STD's, I'm sure not one person will even think of it!
