Hi Sara,

congrats on your wedding! Just curious on how everything went and what package you went with?

I wanted to get the package with the 3 hour private dinner with DJ, not sure if it includes bar though?

Any insight on wedding planning would be amazing thanks!

Hi!

Just wondering if you are doing a private reception package?  Im planning my wedding for Jan 2015....So wasnt sure if their packages included bar service or not and what the prices are?

Plus do you have any prices on decorations of ceremony or reception area with lights or anything?

 

Thanks,

Amanda

Oh yes, since the resort is all-inclusive, the bar is included. They had some really bright, sweet cocktails ready for pouring, but we also had beer, vodka, mojitos, margaritas, etc. Pretty much anything except whiskey. Although they do have that in the VIP bar in the lobby and for those with a black bracelet.

 

I don't remember what the lighting was on the beach, but I didn't pay extra for anything (although I chose not to...). I'm happy to share photos, but I can't figure out how to do it here...

I'm happy to! Send me a private message with your email address, otherwise, the resort actually posted quite a few on their Facebook page that their AWESOME Social Media person took that day. Daniela's photos were some of the best ones taken!  The link to those is here:

Hopefully that works...

Awsome! Thank You so much! It worked. Did you have your reception in at the HUT? We are thinking about getting the Pilapa but are unsure of what it looks like inside.

Hello Ladies!

 

I am trying to resurrect this thread for the Sandos Ladies!  I am getting married at Sandos on April 22nd, 2016.  It feels like a dream being able to type that after how long it took to get to this point!  

 

I picked Sandos after looking at a million places all over the US and Mexico (a backyard BBQ wedding in our home town of Chicago was going to cost ~$20,000, I decided let's take a vacation instead!). I really wanted to find someplace that was affordable for guests to stay at. I want a small wedding (25-35 people) and originally thought I really wanted Dreams Tulum. Eventually I settle on a NOW resort instead because they are more affordable for guests and closer to the airport.  But I liked Sapphire, not Jade, which is not all ages and we have a 15 year old coming so I was back to the drawing board (again).

 

I absolutely fell in love with Al CIelo and Beloved (lovelovelove) but these are WAY more expensive for guests and since they are all coming so far to be with us, I didn't want to ask for more from them so I looked into "most affordable all inclusive resorts" and then checked out the wedding packages at all the resorts.  Sandos WON!

 

It is affordable for guest yet not dumpy

There are BEAUTIFUL wedding packages (beach, garden, palapa) that are very reasonable! (I'll let you know how that works out...if I've learned one thing during this process is that people love to hide costs everywhere)

It is all ages, yet there is an adult only section

They have a cat cafe where they feed stray cats (my fiance and I are huge cat fans)

Close to the airport and Playa Del Carmen

GOOD BEACH- This was very important since the only thing my fiance really wanted was to get married on a nice beach, and a lot of these resort have not so nice beached, which you find out after reading hundreds of trip reviews!

 

Any other Sandos brides?  We are doing the Turquoise Breeze package and are doing the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the Palapa (extra $200 for beach and I believe $800 for the Palapa).
