Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides Post Here!

Recommended Posts

Are you ladies doing anything with all the guests the night before the wedding, like groom's dinner or other event? Also, are you planning any excursions for the guests? I was thinking or organizing an excursion or two for the guests to do. Any suggestions? 

 

Gracias!!

We are planning on doing a catamaran cruise for our guest the day before. It will either be in the later afternoon or a sunset cruise for an hour or so. We had originally planned to just meet at the lobby bar for some cocktails & would mention to everyone where we would be eating dinner. That way if they didnt want to join they didnt have too but we thought the cruise would be be so much fun & also a thank you to our guests for coming with us.

Whats your date in May? I am May 3!

 

I have been to this resort twice & the food was always delicious! Of course it wasnt whats in the dinner options but I dont think you have anything to worry about!

He/she should be able to guide you in the right direction. The food there was fantastic so I can't imagine anything being awful.

Hi everyone,

I'm very new to this forum and had some questions!  I am getting married at EPM on April 20, 2013.  My fiance and I are traveling down to the resort this March.  I have spoken with the wedding coordiantor, Gustavo Vasquez about meeting with him to discuss our wedding and hopefully we can pick some things out, such as food, reception venue, etc.  Have any of you had a large wedding there at the resort?  We are inviting 250 and expect at least 120 to come.  Also, I am trying to find some pictures and/or videos of weddings.  Does anyone know where I can find some?  Thanks in advance!

Thanks ladies!

 

I would love to sample some of the food when we get there and then pick the items, but I also want to make menu's ahead of time and brink them down with us. We'll probably just pick our favorite options, make the menu's and hope for the best. Sounds like they will all be good choices. Thanks for the confidence on the tasty food! It's so nice to hear positive feedback on choices like these.

 

83 days to go :)

 

Oh, here's a link to the company that our TA is using to book our group outing in case you are interested.

Welcome, Monica!

I visited the resort in June. You will love it! I am working with Illeana and when I asked she said the largest wedding they had hosted was about 90 people, so you may set a new record. As far as figuring out your details like food, venue, etc., they will not confirm it until the month before. Maybe since your wedding is so big they will make an exception. I wanted to confirm a place where I can have a DJ at the resort before I booked a DJ and they would not let me do it. So here's hoping that we will get to have our wedding at a DJ friendly venue since we went ahead and booked! For pictures, I suggest reading some of the older posts. They have some links to photographers and some of them are at EPM. Happy planning!

Our wedding is on May 19th! We've been engaged for 2 years and picked this resort when we visited in Sept '10! We started with Yamina, then worked with Ileana, and since this past fall when we visited again, we have Gustavo. I have to admit, I'm starting to get freaked out now that it's right around the corner! With our meal choices, we decided that hot soup outside in Mexico didn't seem "right" as delicious as it was. We talked with the chef and we're going with a tuna sashimi app, then the hearts of palm/mandarin/grapefruit salad, then either the filet with scallops or the fish option of Baked Sea Bass with a chunky lobster and shitake risoto(depending on what the guest wants) ending it all with the chocolate cake...delish! AND we're doing Tres Leches as our wedding cake! :) They were GREAT when we did the tasting! We have the gold package but what I love is that you can mix and match it the way you see fit. We were also able to taste 2 hot and 2 cold appetizers...I highly recommend doing a tasting if you have the chance.  How long are you staying down there? Are you honeymooning there as well or going somewhere else?

Funny you should ask? I just spent a good portion of my day yesterday researching vans/busses/drivers to do an excursion to Tulum for our wedding party who is getting in earlier. We're planning on leaving at 7:30am and heading down to Tulum then on the way back, stopping at Playa Del Carmen for lunch, shopping and drinks! We thought of going to a cenote instead, but we need to be back to the resrt by 6pm to be ready for Thursday night welcome cocktails for all of the guests. Depending on how many people you have, this trip will cost between $37 and $69. Averaging around $50.

WOW! That's going to be quite a group takeover! How fun! The best place to find videos are on Youtube. There are several travel agents who posted things as well as weddings. Not the "best" but it gives you a bit of an idea....

Good Luck!

Wow sounds great! We will be there from 4/29 - 5/8. This will be our wedding & honeymoon!

I wanted to make up a menu before we went so the tasting may not workout too well. Maybe I will just do it anyways in case something is better & forget about the menus... 

Do you know if your guest have to let them know ahead of time or do they come around like waiters asking what they want? Im not sure how it works! Does anyone have the menu options? I wasnt sure if it was updated from when I received it. Mine has the options from 2010-2011

 

Welcome Monica! Holy cow! That's a lot of guests!! How awesome, you are very lucky. Our numbers (25) are actually going down even after people have booked.

Wow, thanks for the fast replies!  I'm so excited about visiting the resort.  I am getting nervous now that I know the largest wedding they've hosted was 90 people.  I am wondering where the location for my reception would be...  I might have to consider cutting down my invites.  I guess I'll figure most of that out when I go in March to meet with them.  Thanks again everyone for all of the advice :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
