We are doing the ceremony at 4:30, the sun should be setting at 7:04. I want a good amount of time for pictures before the sunset as most likely things will run a little late.

We're arriving on the 10th so Lizzy, I would love to meet you then!

 

Next question ladies ... have you decided on the reception details? I'm thinking Seaside Grill with the Silver package, which (when you add in gratuities, etc.) comes to about $39 US per person.

 

It kinda sucks to pay for food when there will be free food all around us. (for 20 guests, that's 800$).

 

What are you ladies doing?

I chose pretty much the same package. I was considering doing the cocktail hour in addition ($8/pp), but if it comes down to budget crunch that will probably get cut.

btw -

Does anyone know:

1. Do you have to wear those all inclusive bracelets at DLR?

2. Is there an outside vendor charge if we bring in our own photographer?

I have already asked about that, after looking at wedding photos and seeing the bands on peoples arms....... No way :-) and apparently because there is not another resort within walking distance we do not need to wear arm bands.

 

I am just havin my reception meal in the seaside grill, my h2b refuses to pay for food when we have paid to stay at an all inclusive resort. I would have argued this until I saw the menu and we have some real fussy eaters with us who would not like anything on the silver meal list. At least this way we will have money to spend on something else and everyone can order the food they like, so I'm happy.

 

Our photographer (hdc) has said that we will have to pay for a day pass for him, does anyone know how much this is?

 

Also I'm now torn between getting married in the gazebo and on the beach. What scares me is last year we were in Punta Cana and saw a few weddings, some people have no respect and at one wedding in particular there were people in bikinis ( one one woman without a top) standing at the gazebo watching and taking photos!!!! They even managed to get themselves into some of the photos!! Does anyone know is the beach location private or beside the sunbathershuh.gif

Brilliant, we'll arrange to meet and I can let you see pics and any insight I've gained, I'll be married by then :-)

We have asked Tiara and its 50 dollars per person to get them in to do the photos and the video. Now I don't think thats the cost of a full day pass but if they are only there for 3-4 hrs maybe theres a cheaper half day pass or something.

I am thinking of doing the seaside grill as well. If you don't rent out the whole place, I think there might be a charge of $15 per head if you have over x amount of ppl. I believe it is to take care of bring out everyone's food at the same time.

I wouldn't mind paying 15 instead of 30 or 40. My fiance hates the silver package as well and actually wanted to do a buffet insteadWill they still allow you to decorate your area how you want (i.e. like the photos Tiera has sent with table cloths, and a couple of flowers at each table)?

Lizzy, meeting you is going to make me life so much easier. I will have to get you a "post-wedding" drink ... or 2.

    • 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.
