Recommended Posts



My TA also had it included so try that - if not I used this transportation company on the day of the wedding - they are by far the cheapest - His name is Ismael his email is reservations@saucevacations.com

Danitha,

We chose the Emerald Package, but made a few changes.  You can basically customize anything you want, so if you don't like the packages, you can speak with them about substituting things.  Otherwise, you can go with the free package and add to it a la carte.  The ferry was no issue.  If anything, we loved being so close to all the action.  It was great because if you have guests that don't like to leave the resort, they will be happy.  But if you have guests who like to get out and see the town, you're literally a 5 minute walk to Playa Del Carmen.  There was no trash and the beach is amazing.  Tell your fiance he has nothing to worry about.  We used desinationweddings.com for our travel agent.  To be honest, I probably would do it myself next time.  Most of my guests had trouble communicating with her and it caused me more stress than doing it myself.  I'm pretty sure the resort makes it easy to book groups, so I'd look into that first.  The only thing my TA was able to get that we couldn't through the hotel was free transportation.  The resort offered us $10 per person for roundtrip transportation.  Hope that help...good luck!

How far in advance did you all speak with the wedding coordinator down there to nail down details about everything? My wedding is May 7th and I have yet to be contacted by the wedding planner. I figured until I knew for sure how many people were coming it was almost pointless to make too many decisions anyway. I don't want to set up a huge private function if I only have 15 guests....I've heard it's pretty standard to have little to no contact until at least 90 days out.

 

Just wondering what everyone's experience was on here....thanks!

Thanks for the email addy!!! I will definitely check him out.  Are we allowed to hire one on our own?  If so do we have to pay for day passes for them or how does that work?

Lauren (the Wedding Sales Coordinator) said that they will be in contact 3 months before the wedding date. This is what it states in the contract, but not sure if this is actually what they end up doing. I hope to hear from them a little sooner though to plan out what I can purchase through the Coordinator, so I can decide on what I would prefer to bring as decor and/or favors AND have enough time to get everything shipped and make sure the order is correct, etc..

Congrats on your wedding. I am planning a nov. 11, 2011 wedding there and I am concerned about how crowded the resort might be during this time. Your wedding was this november, did u find that the resort was filled? was there more than one wedding happening?

thx-Danitha

Hi everyone,

 

Just wondering if anyone knows about the photography policy at the playa car palace.  We already have our photographers booked as guests at the hotel, so being that they're just "paying guests" who will be "taking some pictures" while they're there I'm hoping this will be allowed. :)

 

Has anyone else gone this route?  If so, could you please shed some light on this issue; how the palace handled it, if it was frowned upon etc...

 

Thanks!!

Tara, I just sent you a PM with your other questions. To answer this one. I brought my photog, and he stayed for 4 days at the resort with us.  It was not a problem at all, no one questioned him or us.  Don't worry about it at all!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
