Welcome and congrats!!

 

Playa Neuvo is actually the public beach so will be less private than playa palapa. Not sure you can just upgrade your ceremony location if you have an a'la carte for your reception. If no one else is using it I believe you can.

 

I'm sorry I have no experience with the Italian but I know it's a common one for brides to use.

 

I've heard of people using both the snack bar and the health bar. Both with pros and cons. From what I've heard I may lean to snack bar but both would work. Maybe ask your WC which holds the most people :)

 

We had everything in the palapa so these weren't decisions I had to make. What package are you going for? We took the free package and upgraded to the palapa. It's absolutely breath taking. The location is the one included in the presidential package.

 

The flowers on the 'gazebo' are included in the wedding packages so no fee.

 

If you have anymore questions just ask :)

 

There is a FB group with alot of brides too.

Thank you so much for the helpful information - calgarybride2105

 

We have opted for the Gold package, and I have decided to choose the Italian restaurant. I was going to change to the Palapa, however we are getting married on a Wednesday, and the Palapa isn't available on Wednesdays.

 

Anyway, thank you so much again for your help

 

Your pictures are beautiful btw :)

Sorry I have been so MIA on this site. Only a couple of months to go!

 

I want to bring my own music to the ceremony (on the beach). We are having a symbolic ceremony. Does anyone know how long approximately their symbolic ceremony took? I'm just looking to plan how many songs I should have prepared from the time the guests arrive/sit down until I walk down the aisle.

 

If I decided myself I will probably be way off and either have too much or too little....

Honestly mine was fast. We only did what the minister had planned and from the wedding party walking down the isle, then me, then the ceremony and exit was around 12 minutes lol

 

I had the bridal party, bride, signing, and exit songs picked. Unsure if they played music while the guests waited for me.

I suspect that it was just taken that particular Wednesday. I asked for the 11th, (since our first date was 11/11/11) but I was told it was taken.

I should clarify that the 11th is a Wednesday.

I'm not planning on extras either. Just straight to the hop, now feed us! ROFL.

 

So I asked Adriana what was included in the sound system and she told me it's no longer available. DJ or bust. I'm thinking of investing in A Bose and bringing my iPod. DJ isn't expensive really though. I have a friend who offered to DJ if he comes which would be amazing. But I'm not so sure he'll come since his ex is too and that is a whole awkward story.

Oh wow! I didn't realize they had taken that away. The DJ was very reasonably priced in January and then you didn't have to worry about it. Thank said there are some wedding DJ apps you can use too if your friend doesn't come!

We were also going to buy one of those Bose Speakers (and it will be great to have for the deck at home). So that's my plan for the music for the ceremony, I just hope it's loud enough/ sound quality is decent enough especially bc we will be outside on the beach.

    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!
