    I thought I would just start this thread and see if anyone else has either had a wedding there or will be having your wedding there next year, as this is the resort I am confirmed at! I tried at the Azul Sensatori but my wedding date wasn't available.. thought it must have been a sign!

    But I fell in love with Karisma's weddings and wanted to stay with one of their resorts! Luckily this resort was available! So I am booked.. come chat here if you are a bride going there or have any tips and ideas we can share!

      Hi There, i am an EDSS bride too... most brides seem to go with Royale, but I decided on Seaside based on the beach and the smaller size of the resort... I have talked with people who have been there, and it has great reviews...

      I will definitely post a full review when i return to help out any future brides!

        Thats great! I look forward to your review... so far I have read some good things about this resort.. I know it seems like everyone has chosen the Royale.. but I too loved the beach and smaller feel of this resort! So are you planning on have the beach/ beach gazebo wedding? Have you also chosen a spot for a reception or dinner and dancing? I haven't really started any of my planning yet, I just got my date confirmed yesterday so!

          We are having more than 30 people, so we have to go private reception on the beach (which is exactly what we want anyways). It is getting expensive, particularly since we are renting a tent, but it will be beautiful! We are doing beach wedding, beach reception, and likely a cocktail party before hand... How about you guys?

            I'm thinking at the most we will have maybe 20 people.. which most of them would be our close families... which is totally cool with me.. We are doing the beach wedding with teh four wooden posts and colored fabric.. I love that look! I also wanted to have a dinner reception thing right on the beach.. so I have to find out more about that.. have you already decided on those areas or? Are you planning on bringing centerpieces or just whatever the resort will put on there? Also what about favors? Are you putting them on your dinner tables? Do you know where I could find sandalwood fans that are personalizable? I found a couple of websites that do this but none that ship to Canada!

              I'm not getting married at Seaside Suites (although I would love to if it was in our budget) but I'll be there in about a month and a half for our honeymoon. Let me know if you want pics of anything or if there's anything you'd like me to check out for you!

                  Thats so awesome of you to post any pics you may take of the resort! The more the merrier! I was wondering if maybe you could check out the beach and let me know if they have those huge sandbags in order to rebuild the beach.. I've heard something through the grapevine that there may be those there... if you could check that out for me that would be great!

                  Edssbride09.. which wedding coordinator are you using? I am using Valeria and she seems very good so far! Are you having a reception and dance anywhere? I haven't really got into all the details of it yet, but thought I would check and see where you planned on having all of yours...

                    So do you have your wedding dress already?? Also are you doing a TTD session, and are you using one of the approved photographers? I was thinking I wanted to do a TTD session, but thought I would like to wear a cheaper wedding dress for that instead of using my nice one... what is your take on this?

                      Hey Tracy, Sorry didn't mean to ignore your last post to me, oops! I am now subscribed so i won't miss any more!

                      So we are renting a tent, and a dance-floor. Since we have more than 30 that is our only option, but happens to be exactly what we want! I am using Carolina for my WC, she seems great, i actually need to get back in touch with her since i am in a bit of a wedding planning lull lately...

                      We are not using one of their photographers, though i almost did... it just depends what you want. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but i wanted all my pictures (1 of the options doesn't give you them), I also wanted more than a couple hours, and booked with moments that matter photography. They are actually from Calgary, moving down to riviera maya (They are on this forum all the time!), and they were really reasonable, figured it was worth the $500 fee to the resort to have someone that has an interest in taking amazing photos! Anyways, i thought the resort photogs were good, but the options i wanted were too expensive, i felt like i was getting ripped off!

                      I am not doing a TTD, because we are leaving the day after the wedding! I would have loved to do one, and if i did, i think i would have just worn my same dress... it would have been fun!

                      Oh, and i think most of the stuff at the resort is ridiculously overpriced, so centerpieces are definitely something i shall make up beforehand... I am also using fake flowers (i was quoted $25/calla!).

                      What are you planning? How many guests?
