Did you have any trouble getting reservations to the restaurants on the resort? Did you have to tip to get in?

How much did you pay for your hair to be done the morning of the wedding? Was all of your wedding party satisfied with the spa services?
Yup the $55 covers everything but your table centerpieces or extra flowers/cake etc. They do all of the decorating, provide the white folding chairs (I did the sashes on all of the chairs for $2 a piece and that covered ceremony and move to reception) provide the servers (for 110 people we had 6. Bartenders, we had 3. As well as the take down.

The restaurants book 4 days ahead, you pretty much have to go to the girl at the desk as soon as you arrive to book your dinners - you can expect to get a reservation for about 3 nights later depending how busy the hotel is. I haven't heard anything about tipping to get in, but we never tried or cared - the food at St. Ann's was quite good, the night they had the lobster tails we went there instead of our reservation. Mammee Bay is worth going though, we went there 2x in our 2 week stay.

I booked my appt's at the spa months ahead and you have to pay 50% at that time. My hair is quite long and the 105.00 US covered it. I brought my own little decorative pins. My wrap was 92.00 and the french mani was 36 french pedi 42. All of us were happy with our hair. The mani's and pedi's were alright, when I get them done at home (for less cost) my feet are baby's bum smooth - these were just alright, but my French Manicures were great, I already know that french polish only lasts a day or two so I went in to Ochi and had a lady just paint my toes for $5.

Hi congrats on your wedding day, you looked so beautiful, am delighted you had a great time.

I have a question, another bride on here stayed in a junior suite but apparently they had to pay to eat at the A la carte restaurants inc. Mammee bay, did you have any problems there?

 

Congrats again

The standard rooms will get you in to all of the restaurants, you just have to reserve right away as they book 4 days in advance and they book up quick.
A jr. suite and suite will get you into 2 more restaurants the Japanese and Sir Johns - we didn't go to either on our visit though.
We went to Mammee Bay twice and Mandalay Bay (asian) once and had no problems, nor did it seem like any others did - just make sure you reserve.

I sent my wedding supplies through Air Canada Cargo, I had a lot - we had 50 out of town bags, 72 mugs, 12 centerpieces, 180 candleholders, candles, and I also sent a whole lot of baby stuff, formula, food, diapers to have while we were there as we weren't allowed much weight on the plane. I'm sure if you call your cargo places you can do the same, you just have to get a cab and pick them up. I was fortunate cause we had family do it for us.

The poolside reception - do you have to pay for this, if so how much is it?

Thanks! Yes you do, it's considered a private reception so you get your own location, servers and bar with bartenders. It's $55US per person. If you read previous posts you will see more info on this as well.

    • 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
