Hi Krista Marie,
We are getting married on March 1, 2011. I have been counting down since April 2009 which has given me a lot of time to do my research. One of the reasons we are getting married at the Sandos Playacar is because they have so many options for weddings and the wedding coordinator is amazing. My fiance and I went there last winter to check out the resort and they have been nothing but excellent to us.
Here is our wedding day agenda:
4:30pm - Mayan Ceremony on the Beach
5:00pm - Quick toast to bride and groom (we may do a shot of tequila instead of champagne).
5 - 6:30 - Wedding Pictures taken.
6:30 - 8pm - Semi-private dinner at Italian Buffet (they section off an area for our guests) - FREE
8pm-11pm - Reception at Disco (speeches, first dance, private party) - This costs $280US per hour + 15% gratuity
11pm - Disco opens to public, we party with everyone else at the resort
We did a wedding website as well and sent out emails to everyone instead of official invitations. Our website is www.jayandlindsay.ca if you want to check it out.
