What kind of reception are you having? I e-mailed the WC and just asked for a general idea for outdoor cocktails and some dancing. She recommended the Spa Terrace... but I don't know if that looks out at the ocean or not. I am expecting about 25 people.

Our final number is 29..... we decided to do the cocktail hour and then dinner at one of the restaurants. She sent me pictures of the terraces. The spa terrace is covered, by the pool. The pic looked like it had flouresent lighting which I didn't like. We picked the other terrace... i'll have to look and see what the name is..... I have it at work. The one we picked over looks the pool and ocean. I'm thinking we will have the wedding, then cocktail hour starts while we take pictures. Once we're done with pics, we'll head over to the the cocktail hour where we'll have our first dance and appetizers/drinks. Then we'll head to one of the restaurants for dinner. That detail hasn't been worked out yet. We were going to do the private dinner but I really can't see spending 1200 for a fajita buffet!!

Well right now I am just using the free package. I thought it may be less to just order the picture packages I want and bridesmaids bouquets rather than pay for a package... I need to review this plan again it has been awhile.

 

I like the sound of your terrace better. Have you decided what you are going to do for music?

 

Also I thought the resort didn't do dinner reservations for more than 10 people.

 

I need to get busy. I am really anxious to have the reception planned!

 

My WC is Paolo. Is she yours too?

Hey everyone. I am debating between the Sun Palace or Excellence Playa Mujeres for a wedding for 10/10. I have received quite a bit of info from both resorts and I am really bothered by the Sun Palace not allowing outside photographers. I think it will prevent me from booking there but otherwise I love it.

Does anyone have info or examples from their photographer. They sent me some photos but that doesn't help with any specific photographer. I hope I can get around the policy somehow.

Palace resorts allow outside photographers as long as they travel from the states and stay at the resort with you. We were able to find a photographer that was willing to only charge us travel costs. This worked out to being less that what we would've paid for an upgraded package through the resort.

Hey! We had the wedding of our dreams at the Sun Palace on Sat... we are currently on our honeymoon :) All I can say is Paola is AMAZING!!!!! Any brides getting married there have NOTHING to worry about!!! Every little detail was perfect and ALL of my guests had an amazing weekend. We ended up having our cocktail hour at the spa terrace and it does look over the pool and ocean. The set up was beautiful!!!! From the original pics I received of the terrace, I wasn't impressed but it was perfect when we got there. I'll be posting a review when we get back!!

Hi Ladies!

 

I'm getting married at the Sun Palace Feb. 20, 2010, but all of our guests are staying at the moon palace and so are we. (we had to do this because there were no times available at the moon palace the day we chose to get married)

 

Ok, so it's 75 days away from our wedding and my wedding planner is not emailing me back and when she does she doesn't answer any of my questions! I'm freaking! I was not a fan of any of the flower options (but the funny thing is that none of the options even matched the other packages)

 

We have unlimited private functions so we'll be having a reception with about 55 people, I'm basically freaking out because the clock is ticking and I don't want to end up hating our ceremony and reception decor. So help! Any advice? any pics you can share? I noticed that you all had problems with your coordinators also!

 

Thank you in advance!

We had our DREAM wedding at the Sun Palace.... don't worry about flowers. All you need to do is tell her what you are looking for and they'll work with you to make an arrangement that works with your colors :) What package are you going with??

    • 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.
