Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides Post Here!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies. I need to sit down and write a detailed review, but I just have to say that our wedding was amazing. Yamina is so sweet and helpful and the resort is beyond goregous!!!

 

We got married on Monday May 23 at 5 PM on the beach and had our reception inside one of the rooms in the convention center. It was definitely hot so I'm glad we had our reception inside although the air conditioning could have been much stronger. We had 45 people.

 

Our photographer was Sascha Gluck and he was wonderful. He made us feel so comfortable, and I can't wait to see the pictures.

 

Feel free to PM me if you have questions.

@cole379 Have them check out La Amada. It is literally right down the beach from EPM and they allow children. My parents had a view of the playground for kids at La Amada from their room at EPM...it's that close.

The last I checked which was a few weeks ago:

 

Day Passes for EPM

 

$150 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

$100 5 p.m.-9:00 a.m.

 

I got that quote from the customer service line. Hope that helps!!

Thanks for the replies. Yasmina told me that a day pass is $70 for the event day but they only get to come on site an hour before the wedding. They are going to stay at La Amada since it is going to be an all-inclusive after January of next year.

 

We are early in the planning process but I was wondering if anyone could let me know when you are able to reserve your reception location. We absolutely have our heart set on the event terrace. Since there is a bride getting married that day at 3 pm (I assume since the 5 pm slot was open but not the 3 pm slot), how do they let each bride pick their reception venue? What if we want the same one?

Hey Nicole! Congratulations! I was married last year at Excellence Riviera Cancun. The Excellence brand is amazing and I haven't been to EPM yet, but I've heard wonderful things. You're going to have a top notch wedding! We had Del Sol do the photography and I can tell you that almost 1 year later (in a week), I still tear up when I look at the photos. They're incredible people to work with and true artists! Good luck with the planning! I've included some of the pics from Del Sol below ;)

My Fiance is Thomas and we will be at the resort with our guests from April 15-22, 2012 and our wedding date right now is set for 5 pm on April 17. I am so excited to start planning. Is anyone else going to be getting married there around the same time?

 

I look forward to posting on the forum and helping each other out while we plan our weddings. I have seen a lot of pictures (especially from Del Sol) and the weddings I have seen there look incredible. Very excited!

Thank you Sharon99! You're going to have amazing pictures. I am sure of it. Del Sol & La Luna both create artwork with photography so you'll be in great hands I'm sure! Congratulations to you! Also, I see that you're from Philadelphia? I'm originally from the Allentown area and went to college in West Chester, PA!

Hi ladies,

 

So we got our confirmation letter for officially booking our wedding from the Weddings Manager at Excellence. In the letter it says that we will have a dedicated wedding specialist assigned to us one month before the date. Um, I thought we started planning before that! I know that other brides on the boards have begun their planning and communication with Yamina long before a month before the big day so I am confused! Will I still be contacted by Yamina soon or what is my next step now? I want to ensure that we get our desired reception location and start planning things like the DJ etc.!


Thanks!

I never got a letter from them at all...I didnt know you were supposed to. And my date has been reserved now for months! Now I am concerned! LOL! The hardest part about a DW is everything & everyone is so far away :(

Think I will email Yamina tomorrow. I have a few questions for her anyways.

Hi Sharon99,

 

Did you have to fill out any paperwork so far with Yamina? Did she contact you to get the planning started? I really want to try and get the Event Terrace for our wedding and am worried that another bride that day might already have it.

 

Thanks,

 

Nicole

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
