    I'm having my honeymoon at the Privilege in April 2010 (we are getting married in Playa) and based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, we are expecting good things! I would love to see some wedding pics from the resort :)

      Hey Ladies,

      To answer a few pending questions.

      1. The wholesaler I’m thinking about using is called Whole Blossoms and they are out of Austin (where I’m from). I haven’t made up my mind yet, it all depends on how easy they can ship the flowers and costs.

      2. We are doing an iPod because we are both REALLY picky about music. My fianc© and many of his friends are musicians, so it was easier to get what we wanted this way. We are having a friend announce the wedding party, toast, etc. I’ve hired my friend (who does events) to be my weekend coordinator while we are there and she is going to keep things running on time as well.

      Tina, I know you must be getting ready for your trip soon. I cannot wait to hear your feedback and pictures. Please send ALL that you take. The more the better. :) I so wish I could go. I’m traveling half of the fall for work, too bad it’s not anywhere near there.

      Hope you are all doing well.
      Best,
      Rachel

        I was just reading reviews about the hotel, some guests stated that there are people w/ boom boxes on the beach on saturday and sunday. That would really suck if there was loud music playing during our ceremonies.

          are you having it right on the beach? i'm sure if there is an issue that hotel staff would kindly ask them to turn it down and be respectful. :)

            Hey everyone! For those of you who have price quotes from the hotel on here- were those the original rates they gave you or did you work with them on the price? I received rates from Edgar, and they were a lot higher. The cheapest room is $94 per person per night for non-all-inclusive. And that's with blocking 25 rooms. Thanks!

              What time of year are you going? Those were the original quotes that they gave. They had a special before, maybe its not running any more.

                  We're going in January. My fiance and I are staying January 6-16th with the wedding being on January 11th. Most of our guests are staying for 5 or 6 days. You're right about the special ending...the 40% discount ended in August. I'm so bummed! I wish they would've told us that, but oh well. Our new rates are:
                  All Inclusive
                  Superior *room**** $117.00 per person per night double occupancy
                  Dlux Suite $143.00 dls.
                  Premium Suite $157.00 dsl.
                  Platinum Suite $240.00 dls
                  Supplementary for single room add $40 usd x nt.

                  Breakfast
                  Superior *room***** $ 85.00 dls per person per night double occupancy
                  Dlux Suite $110.00 dls.
                  Premium Suite $125.00 dsl.
                  Platinum Suite $210.00 dls

                  I'm starting to panic because it's getting so close and I feel clueless about planning most of the time! In July my house burnt down, so my fiance and I lost everything, which really kind of took the fun out of planning. So now I'm trying to get everything back on track. I'm having trouble wording my invitations. Does anyone here have a good way to word an invitation that invites everyone to the wedding in Isla Mujeres and if they cannot come, there will also be a reception at home?

                  Thanks!
                  Kathleen

                    Hey Kathleen,
                    Gosh so sorry to hear about your house, that's horrible. Don't panic, you have 4 months, a lot can be accomplished in that time. The hotel takes care of most things so that should help w some of the stress.

                    If you think about it, compared to other hotels your rates are still good.

                    For your at home reception, I would suggest possibly a line on your rsvp card which gives them the option to rsvp for the at home reception.

                    Hope this helps.

                      Thanks, Sheena! I decided to go with that idea. Are you going to do welcome bags for your guests?
