In my opinion you are going to get that at any resort you go to in Mexico. I think if you are firm with them, you will be fine in not having them bother you. On the other hand I've talked to people who have gone to the timeshare meetings and ended up buying one and it actually sounds like a pretty good idea/deal which makes me wonder why we are always so hell bent on avoiding them! Lol. I haven't been to Sandos, however, so I really can't speak for that resort specifically.

Hope that helps!

Hello Ladies, Could Someone type up there the different wedding packages and what they include? I sent a e-mail about week ago to Sandos but haven't heard anything. I don't have enough points to look at the attachments. If its easier my e-mail is adjwedding2010@yahoo.com

 

Thanks.

Getting married at Sandos April 15th 2010!!!

 

Tonia 579 we deciede on Sandos after researching a ton of resorts in the area. The wedding package prices are good, from what I can tell they don't charge you for extra people like a lot of the other resorts do. It's close to Playa del Carmen which is nice for the guests, the beach looks beautiful! I think the main rason really was how nice the beach looks in this area.

If you have facebook they have a facebook profile which has tons of pics and gives really good info on the resort. If you have any ?'s let me know, I have some extra info that the wedding planner has sent me.

Good luck deciding!!

The bonfire thing was super expensive, Paola came back with a quote of 500 or something and then a fellow from the band said he would come down with his drums and play for us at a bonfire for 600. Not really worth it, some other resorts do beach bonfires for only 80 dollars an hour or something. She sent us pictures of the two buffets but no menu examples. If anyone wants to see the pictures of the two buffets let me know!

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
