I do have my heart set on the beach wedding, that is the main reason I chose to have a destination wedding. I want the sand in my toes. So the photographer and WC should be able to keep the people at a reasonable distance if asked?

Once people see a wedding their general reaction is to crowd around. The WC when setting up the area will pull chairs back to a certain point, and they sometimes assign guards to usher people by at the beach by in my experience the guards just tend on holding a crowd there. During the actual wedding the WC will not ask people to step back or go away or anything because they are actively involved in the ceremony.

I can only speak for myself as a photographer but I am way too busy taking photos to ask people to step away or leave because they are unsightly.

The truth is - its a busy beach and if you choose to have it at that location there will be people watching. Some will be in swimsuits, some will be topless etc. If you have the ceremony at say 5 or 6 pm there will be less people on the beach.

Once you are there I suggest going to check out another wedding and if you don't like the amount of people they will switch it to the Gazebo for you.

This is not something that is exclusive to the Majestic, basically any beach ceremony at any resort will have the same problem.

good point. I guess i'll just go expecting it; but at the same time just ignore the people. HOpefully they will have enough common courtesy to not come to close...especially if they are topless! I'll be having my dream of getting married on the beach; and that will be the only thing that matters!

That is definitely the right attitude to have. I have had a couple brides ask me beforehand to get a shot of a guy in a speedo in the background with them in the foreground if I can. They found it funny.

Dinner I believe can start at 6:30...but not 100% sure. I know 7 definitely because that's what I am doing. 3pm is a fine time but realize the beach is very crowded still at that time. If you are 100% fine and can tune everyone out then go for it. The WC do not block people from getting close so realize video/pics could have a lot of beach goers in them. If this is not ok go for a later time because I know you said the beach is your dream wedding spot. Otherwise everything will be perfect and beautiful!

are you getting married on the beach?

 

I wanted to do a little later....4 or 5 but she told me 3 was the only time they had for that week!! I can't believe it fills up that fast! Does anyone know where on the beach you are married? Is it set off to the side a little?

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
