First off, thank you ladies for everything you have posted. This has made me feel better about my decision. I have been with my future husband 15 years already, we met when we were kids, so coming to SMB Nov 3-10 was my Annivresary gift. I had no idea until last week that our luxury vacation was going to turn into my wedding! Nov 7, 2013 is the big day! Just a little more than three months away! I thought it was a blessing that SMB was going to be able to take us! I thought I might have to find a different place in Playa! Valeria has done a pretty good job as far as correspondence goes. I'll admit I am now concerned that she hasn't gotten back to me since I filled out the questionnaire and I only have my spot reserved until Friday. I
My wedding party is going to be really small, maybe even just the two of us, but my instincts tell me it could be up to 10 people. So my idea is to just have a small reception/dinner at one of the restaurants so I was hoping to get a few of my other questions and concerns out of the way so I can plan accordingly, I can't believe I will be there in about 100 days! Time is already starting to fly by!
1. Are there any restaurants that have a good view of the ocean? According to the map Oceana perhaps?
2. I'm concerned that there won't be anyone qualified to do my hair which I will definitely need. I am half African American and I have type 4 curly hair that I may want to have flat ironed for the evening. If no one is qualified or comfortable doing my kind of hair, is there a salon in Playa that can?
3. I am still waiting on Valeria to let me know what ceremony venues are available as well during my time slot. If the beach isn't available, what do you ladies feel are the next best options. I think this will determine my shoe purchase as well.
I know I will have a lot more questions as time goes on so I thank you all in advance for any advice you may offer.
Congratulations Melissa!!! This site is absolutely super helpful!!! So our wedding hasn't happened yet so I can't answer all your questions, but I wanted to say that I have Blanca written down as a good hair person at their salon. I have hair that can be rather difficult as well so I am planning to do a test with her on Tues when we arrive to make sure that we are on the same page before the big day. Not sure if that is an option for you. Happy Planning!!!
