    Starfishie....how did you like the mariachi? Did they do all your music during the ceremony or you still have to give Lupita your music in an ipod? Thank you :)

      Hi ladies! I am considering this resort for our wedding April 2014.

       

      - Are external vendor fees charged as a flat rate (like $300?) or a day pass?

       

      - The Sandos website has wedding package information, but no pricing - does anyone have a package with pricing they could forward to me?  heather.mcarthur@gmail.com

       

      Thanks for any info you can provide :)

        The Mariachi band was great! It was an expensive option, but really added to the atmosphere. They started playing right before the processional started (played "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as I walked down the aisle) and stayed through the toasts back at the wedding hut/gazebo. We paid for 45 minutes, but when they got close to the end one of our friends tipped them and requested one more song. We did not use an iPod at all.

          Thank you Starfishie, did you have sand ceremony? If you did....where the vases pretty? I am just trying to figure out if I should buy my own here and take it or just go with the ones they have.

            external vendors are charged a day pass per person (is around 77 dollars i thnk?), with the exception of photographers - i think thats 300.

             

            sent the info as not sure whether anyone else did - its for 2012 prices

                My fiancĀ© and I (female same sex wedding) are having a symbolic ceremony May 2014 at Sandos Playacar.  We want to have the dinner and reception on the beach and have a DJ on the beach as well. I hear we can be on the beach until 10:30PM.  Are there any pros and cons to having it on the beach vs. the restaurants other than having A/C and not having A/C?  We are also thinking of using Samuel Luna and Carlos Gallardo for video.  Has anyone used them?  Our budget is tight and their prices are great and their pictures are also very nice!  Is there anyone else that someone recommends?  Just looking for advise and recommendations.  I am thinking about using the parasol's for the bridesmaids and maid of honors instead of flowers.

                 

                Thanks in advance!!

                    Hi Sandos brides

                    Has anyone done a sand Ceremony?  Can you find the colored sand down there or how did you get your sand ceremony vase and sand down to the wedding? Any suggestions

                      Sorry, we didn't do a sand ceremony. We kept it super simple with just the vows and paperwork signing. I know you can add a sand ceremony because Lupita offered it when we met with her, but I don't have any details.
