I'm not sure about a lot!  I am actually getting really nervous!  Not sure where to turn. They have no catalogs to choose anything from other than flowers and even then, they aren't the nicest.  Any advice anyone??

  • Bride2B2014--What do you need emailed?
  • I have just been emailing her pictures of stuff I like to give her an idea of the look I am going for and to get an idea of prices. Looking at Del Sol photographers wedding photos can give you some inspiration and get the juices flowing hopefully. Have you looked on pinterest? Lotsa photos. 
 
  • Ruefce13--Layout of ceremony? Template? We have not gotten that far yet. Our friend is going to be the speaker at the ceremony so we still need to talk it over with him. I asked for the beach area that is more secluded and not as close to hotel beach area.
  • Maybe after dinner everyone can head to disco and you can make a grand entrance and do your first dance then. Talk to the DJ ahead of time and give him your song choice?

Hello everyone! My fiance and I are getting married May 30th 2014. We are both very excited. Currently we are trying to decide where to have our dinner. We know that we want to have it in one of the restaurants. If any one has pictures  of their dinner to post that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks everyone.

Hello, everyone! I'm getting married at Sandos Playacar on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 1pm and am wondering a couple of things... First, has anyone else had this time and what were the pros/cons? Anything I should try to plan for? Secondly, if anyone had the ceremony at 1 and then the reception & dinner, how did the timing work for you? Was there a long break for your guests between the ceremony and the other events? Did you plan anything for during that time?


Any and all input is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I just got back from my wedding and it was AMAZING!!

 

Checking in was painless. We did get there very early and had a few hours until our rooms were ready. They put the wristbands on us, told us to leave our bags in lobby, get a drink and start enjoying our vacation.....which we gladly did!! We just grabbed a swimsuit out and hit the beach. Check in time is 3pm and we got there at about noon.

 

The resort is great and  the staff are friendly and willing to help with anything you need. The variety of restaurants is great and I would recommend making your reservation for the a la carte the day you get there. The buffets were delicious and a lot of options but pretty much the same day to day. The Italian buffet was closed due to remodeling which was a bummer. The nightly shows are great and change day to day so you probably will not see the same thing. The Bambola bar was always a great spot to hang. The cupcake cafe has delicious coffee drinks and a variety to choose from. We ate at the Mediterranean and Mexican A La carte restaurants and both were delicious but if I had to choose, it would be the Mediterranean. The Mojitos are delicious and there is something for everyone on their drink menu. We all tipped the staff because they work so hard and good service should always be rewarded. The room was spacious. We stayed in the select club adults only section. They even had a buffet set up at the adult pool that was delicious for their "Sunday Funday". Also an adult only breakfast buffet very very close to that section. It had DIY mimosas and bloody marys! It was worth the upgrade. There was also better liquor at adult pool, in premium bar at lobby and meeting point for the select club guests. I did not ask for upgraded liquor on the beach. The beach was beautiful and maybe it was the time of year we went but there was always plenty of spots open at the beach and pool. It was about a 5-6 Minute walk to beach from adult section. I did not mind it since we were drinking and eating so much I kinda needed it. There were shuttles going all day until 11pm I think is cutoff time. We used them sometimes but the resort is beautiful and I liked walking by the donkeys too. My friend got a massage at the spa and said it was amazing. The fridges in the room were nice to have so if you just wanted a quick drink you did not have to walk all the way to a bar. To have 24 hour room service is always nice. It is a large resort so about 30-40 minute wait for room service was normal.

 

I would definitely return to this resort. Some of our friends said they would also come back to this resort. The location is great. We chose this resort because I felt the price was right, great location and I was happy with the reviews(wedding and resort). There are always negative people so do not take them so literally. If you can not have a good time at the beach then there is something wrong with you.  

 

The wedding was just wonderful. Lupita the WC is amazing. She is just a blessing for a bride like myself. I was kinda unorganized and didn't have everything figured out really even on the day of. She was patient and just wants to make you happy. She was quick to respond to my emails and I could stop by her office while I was there if I needed to. I emailed pics of what I wanted and she had them ready at our meeting to refer to them. She is such a professional. The ceremony site was beautiful. We did ceremony on beach in front of royal elite palapa and the reception inside the royal elite palapa. It was raining on and off so I did not want to risk it. I would recommend having a private reception. The royal elite palapa is off to the side of resort so it is very private. We had a group of 35 and we fit very comfortably. The staff is amazing. The food was beyond my expectations. We had a dj for a few hours then a Mariachi band to end the night. You cannot have a wedding in Mexico without a Mariachi. It was the best time. The room was decorated how I wanted it. Lupita even took off the two flower arrangements from gazebo and put them on our sweetheart table and I thought it but didn't even had to ask because she already had it done!! We had fans on chairs at ceremony and she even used the extra fans around the wedding for decorations. The colors of everything was what I asked. They made sure people on the beach were not all over your ceremony so you could get some good pics. She really is just great. 

 

If I had my choice to do it again I would still choose Sandos Playacar and Lupita!!

Hi.

I am getting married January 2014 and am confused about what to do after the dinner.  We have dinner reservations for 31 people at one of the A La Cartes but not sure what to do afterwards.

I find that that the prices are outrageous and not sure if I want to spend that kind of money.

 

Looking for some advice and suggestions from brides.

Thanks

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
