Isla Mujeres Newbie

Recommended Posts

Welcome Daniella!! I'm so glad you're here, my fiance and I just decided to get married on Isla in January 2010. We're still deciding over wedding coordinators, so you had a great experience with Sunhorse? I've been emailing Katie from Sunhorse and she seems nice, but I'm afraid that if their coordination fee is based on a percent of "extras" they'll be pushing me real hard to get more stuff for the wedding. Did you have this issue with Sunhorse?

Daniella, I forgot to ask what the downtown area was like at night? I was on Isla a couple weeks ago but my fiance and I were too silly (and lazy!) to check out the downtown at night. Our wedding party will have some younger folks who may want to go to a bar and stuff. I know there's not much of a nightlife on Isla and it's pretty quiet, but is it completely dead at night or is there a little bit of a mellow nightlife?

Hi Danielle and welcome! It is so kind of you to do this and I'm especially appreciative since the #1 location on our list right now is Zama Beach Club on Isla Mujeres, using Sunhorse Weddings to coordinate.


The only reservation I have about Isla Mujeres is the fact that, in addition to flying all the way to Cancun (we're in San Francisco) and taking an airport transfer, our guests will also have to take the ferry to the island, adding an extra amount of time and inconvenience. Did this seem to bother any of your guests, or even worse, dissuade any from attending your wedding? Because of this, we've been looking at other locations throughout the Riviera Maya but so far we haven't found anywhere that we like even half as much as Isla Mujeres.


Thanks again and get ready because I'm going to be bugging you with a LOT of questions!


- Jen

    • 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.
