Also, for the ceremony, is there a microphone? Is it hard for the guests to hear what's going on (both in the gazebo and on the beach)?

Thanks RonNMel! I will try to track some pics of Sam's ceremony on the beach and post. The pier is at the Varadero Golf Course. More info about that in my review! There is a microphone...I think everyone could hear just fine at both loactions.

 

I just posted a review under Wedding Reviews!

We had our songs burned to CDs as Yahimara told us originally there were no iPod hookup. For the sake of keeping things simple, I had three songs I wanted played during our ceremony - one for the bms walking down the aisle, one for me and one for after we kiss and walked back down the aisle together. These were the only 3 songs on the CD which I marked CD#1, and it seemed to make things easier for the guy taking care of the music. Yahimara kind of nodded to him when it was appropriate to stop one song and when to start the next etc.

I had a CD marked "CD #2" which I gave to a friend to give to the DJ at the private reception. The first song was for Robin and I's first dance, the second for my Dad and I, third for Robin and his Mom etc....again, it seemed to keep things simple for them.

We had the disco private from 9-11pm when we did these dances and we found out that they could use our iPods!! A few people ran back to their rooms to get theirs but the DJ (who you will all get a kick out of, he's funny) has all popular Top 40 type of music you'll want.

Sorry I'm rambling! Bottom line is bring your iPods, but I'd burn CD's for the ceremony and important dances :)

Congrats on your wedding Siobhan! You looked gorgeous! :)

 

We had a blast for our wedding week at the ILA as well. We chose the beach ceremony for ours. It was HOT but the breeze was amazing. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.

 

We had our private dinner from 6:30-8:30 in Del Chef but had the Steakhouse menu. They forgot our lobster dinners, but when Yahimara found out she quickly arranged for us to have them at our a la carte dinner the next night instead. All worked out just fine!

 

We had booked our dinner originally from 6:30-9:30 but when we had our meeting, Yahimara advised she couldn't shut down the restaurant for anymore than 2 hours. We didn't rent the disco privately, so we did our speeches & first dance right during the private dinner. Unfortunately, we didn't get served our appetizers until after 7:00pm so we were running really tight on time and had to rush through quite a few things. We did get everything in but the next wedding dinner was coming in at 8:30 before we had a chance to finish. We were doing our dances while our dessert was still being served at 8:30.

 

All in all they were small issues and we had an AMAZING vacation. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

 

I'll probably add a review and pictures later, but we're off to our honeymoon caribbean cruise for the week!

 

Also, a big congrats to Grace!!! It was awesome to meet you in person :) I didn't see your wedding, but i'm sure you looked gorgeous! We did hear your party in your private disco though :) Can't wait to hear all about it!

    • 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.
