Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides Post Here!

Wow, I didn't even think about the dress code. Thank you for asking about that. I have to say that this website and all of your comments have made me so at ease with booking this location! I started out with Dreams at Maroma Beach but I have heard horrible things about their service. Yamina called me this week from Mexico and she seems very nice. I told her about this website and the nice things all of you have been saying and she didn't even know about it. She seems very sweet! I finally found my dress this weekend and can't wait to see it all put together with the veil and hair!! I also just ordered my save the date cards which will hopefully be here by the end of this coming week. I found the cutest cards on weddingpaperdivas.com. Next order of business is asking my friends to be in the wedding. I don't know why but I am nervous they will say no as it could be rather expensive as it is I am already asking them to go to Mexico! I was so excited to be able to book DJ Doremixx but found out that you can only use DJ Mannia which is totally fine but they are a bit more expensive and provide less then DJ Doremixx. Not happy about that! Does anyone have any experience with DJ Mannia that could tell me about?

Wow time in flying by. I feel like I have so much to do and so little time. I can't wait to be in Mexico and guess what I wont have to wait very much longer. I just got my dress yesterday my alterations look amazing and I also got married yesterday at the courthouse. I need to finish up my OOT bags by buying more beach towels and tissue paper.

S Katrese your date is so close!! I know how excited you must be.

 

Just a note about my OOT bags - I wanted to do more of a beach bag for mine and I found some big canvas ones at Bed Bath & Beyond last week for $4.99!! They are off white with either red or blue handles. I wanted them pretty big because I'm using one bag for each couple I think these will hold 2 towels, two mugs and all the other stuff I end up with!

 

I was wondering about when to pick the flowers and cake too. Yamina has been very responsive anytime I've had to email her. I might send her an email and see what she suggests.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
