Hey, Has anyone had any experience modifying the wedding themes that they give you... ie: adding feathers or ribbons etc.?? I've contacted them but haven't heard anything back yet... Also, for the ladies that got married this year, how did it go???

Qupid21 - Hi, I spoke with Ana earlier this week and she says it is okay to bring your own decor etc. So if there are specific elements you would like that she cannot supply; you can bring your own options too.

Thats a fantastic idea, maybe even put some white sand in the bottom then some sea shells followed by the flowers?  I was thinking the same thing.  How are you getting your center peices to the resort?  Are you shipping everything you are brining for the wedding ahead of time?

Hey Ladies,

 

Just got my package from the resort with the flower, cake options and locations. Has anyone modify anything here such as flowers, cake. If so was it an extra charge? I think I am Ok with the white calla lilies, but would like to see what other people did. For the cake, not crazy about the flowers or ribbons they used! Are they usually good about adjusting them to the colours, flowers you prefer or is it exactly what you see.

 

On another note, something strange they told me I never heard was that "the transportation fee for the justice of the peace and the apostille seal for the marriage certification are not include in the wedding package, it has an extra charge of 70usd each, and so this payment must be in cash and will be paid upon arrival to the wedding coordinator." I never heard anyone talk about this in the threads, unless i totally missed it. Is this true? I picked the Paradise package so i thought all of that was included.

I have a question concerning tipping.  For traditional weddings it is customary to tip15-20% for everyone providing a service. However, the resort packages everything together for one price.  How much are you planning to tip the wedding coordinator? 20% of my package cost would be almost $1000!

@guillane87 yes, you have to pay extra for those fees if you are having a civil ceremony. Every resort charges that. I checked a ton befor we finalized our decision. As for changing options youbdefinitely can. Some things do have another charge, you just have to ask for what you want and make sure you get detailed pricing in writing before you head down there. I upgraded my bouquet and that was an extra fee. @qupid you can bring your own decor And they will set it up for you

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
