Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides Post Here!

Recommended Posts

We also chose the gazebo, as I'm not much of a sand person. Our wedding is at 3:00pm. We chose the Spice Terrace as our dinner restaurant and the X-Lounge for cocktail hour. I am working with Andrea (was previously working with Llenny before she left). Are you also getting married on the 2nd? Curious as to why I have not heard about these construction "issues". What are your preferences for dinner/cocktail hour and what time is your wedding?

We are getting married May 3rd and 3pm. Plan was gazebo, cocktail hour at x lounge and reception at the lobster house.

How many guests are you having? We have 27.

 

I've been working with Mayla. Like I said, she just informed me today that we may want to consider another ceremony location, but as far as I know it is either the gazebo or the beach. I requested she advise of any other location options.

 

Not sure if you have been stalking trip advisor reviews like I have, but there have been nothing but positive reviews recently. I don't think the construction will ruin any one's trip. However, it is certainly concerning me as far as our ceremony goes!

I do stalk TripAdvisor as well!! It sounds like the resort is nothing short of amazing. Really not worried. Just hoping there's not a lot of hammering/drilling/sawing during the ceremony either! Haha!! After all, it's not as if we can change it, so I'll just go with the flow! But I am still hoping for the gazebo vs. the beach. I'll scope it out when we get there. When are you arriving? We fly in April 30th and are staying until May 10th. We have 16 guests coming, but 6 of them are staying at another resort. Perhaps I'll see you there!!

Hi ladies - Congrats on your very close weddings! The excitement must be sky-high by now :)

 

I am getting married May 20th and have had a very difficult time trying to communicate and get information from Andrea. Does anyone have a copy of the following that they would be willing to email to me?

 

1. Complete Gold Wedding package info packet (or any info packet that has more info than the basic one posted online)

2. A/V list and pricing

3. Updated brochure/pics of the flowers; gazebo flowers and additional items they offer

 

She keeps telling me she will send them but doesn't seem to have time. It would be a huge help if anyone has these and is willing to send! Thank you!

I would also like the same info as @@kbailey4 if you have it available (though I haven't booked a wedding there yet, just for my own info I guess)


For those ladies on tripadvisor forums, do you post? I am oilslick

Oh, the resort is heaven! We were able to go last October for a few days and it is absolutely wonderful.

 

Very non-bridezilla of you to say that you'll just go with the flow!

 

We will be flying in on April 27th and staying until May 10th. We will probably definitely see one another there!!

So I've spent the whole day reading this thread - a lot of valuable information!

 

Can any of the previous brides tell me if they had "partiers" in their group of guests, and if those guests were satisfied with the amount of "partying" that was going on in the resort? My aunt got married at Secrets Maroma Beach and she had arranged a bus to take us for a bar crawl, wondering if I should do the same to satisfy the partiers.

I am at Excellence right now and it's heavenly! Met with Mayla yesterday and she seems to be capable and well-organized. My stress level is much lower after having our meeting and reviewing all the details.

 

FYI there is construction by the gazebo and we will be making a decision the day of the wedding whether or not to move the ceremony. There is no way to know if they will be working over there that day or what they will be doing - loud drilling or more quiet work. Mayla gave us two other options for our ceremony location. The "stage" by Kafe Kafe which would be nice as it is elevated and guests will be able to view us nicely. She also offered the game area where the ping pong and pool table are. Said they clear out the games and it's a nice little covered area. We will see what happens!

    • 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.
