Where is everyone planning to get their hair and make-up done? Most recommendations are for people who come to the hotel. Anyone know what type of make-up the spa uses?

I dont think you have anything to worry about.  My DH and I just returned from playacar palace and had a wonderful trip.  The service of the staff was great, the location was the best and the beach is perfect.  We had no problem using up our $1500 credit as it was quite easy to book the tours and we upgraded our room from the resort view to concierge level with an ocean view.  The only thing I would say was on the negative side was only having 3 restaurants, as we got a little bored.  There was always something good to eat but sometimes at the buffet somethings just sat took long.  We loved the asian restaurants but the italian was not so great for our tastes as we have tons of great italian restaurants here in nj(but others we met there loved it so to each its own).  Also they loved to put cream cheese in a hand full of the dishes (alot of the sushi had it and some of the italian) and i dont like cream cheese so i dont think that helped.

 

We only saw one wedding talking place for the whole week so that was nice compared to where we got married as they had one or two everyday.  Let me know if you want any pics or info on the tours as we did most of them.

I would just like to warn everyone that Gilberto quit.  Its making things extremely difficult for my wedding in one month at Playacar.  My advice would be for anyone that still has an option to choose a resort, don't choose Palace right now. The new coordinator I have been assigned to does not seem organized and is making lots of errors.  Im sure she is completely overloaded. If anyone still has the option, I would suggest choosing some place other than the Palace Resorts in and around PDC/Cozumel.

UGH.  That's a total bummer about Gilberto - I really liked him when we met back in January on our site visit.  THanks for passing this info along.  I still have 3 months until our Wedding, so hopefully things will get better!

Hi Everyone!

 

Does anyone have photos from your wedding at Playacar Palace that you can post or send me?  I am looking to get married there in April of 2011 but haven't had any luck finding real wedding photos of the ceromony and reception. Where is everyone having their ceromony and reception at?  I was thinking of the ballroom for the reception and don't know about the ceromony yet.   

 

Thank you!!!

We're doing our ceremony on the beach, not sure where we'll have the reception though. If you go on Tripadvisor to the PP reviews there's a review from a girl who got married there in May. I'm pretty sure she's not on this forum, but I sent her a message asking for any pics and she added me on Facebook so I could see them. She has a TON of great pictures of the ceremony set-up, the resort in general, and the reception. Her sn on tripadvisor is maria3405 and if you want to see what the set-up looks like on the new beach she can probably help! Here's her review: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g150812-d155824-r66656141-Playacar_Palace_Wyndham_Grand_Resort-Playa_del_Carmen_Yucatan_Peninsula.html

I agree the new coordinator is of no help and I am a little scared of what it will be like when we get there in November.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
