I paid $150 for the cigar roller which was for one hour during the cocktail hour and included 20 cigars.  My guests really enjoyed it.

We are using the Caribbean Trio and I do not think they are a steel drum band ( although that would be awesome) - I think it is the same 3 guys playing more Caribbean songs instead of Mexican Fiesta.  Please correct me if I am wrong anyone who knows different- Thanks!

We got married on a Friday, and had to arrive on the prior Monday :)

In order to get married (legal) in Mexico, you have to be there 4 full days prior to the wedding? Meaning, if the wedding is on a Fri, you have to get there the Sunday prior to?

 

Is this true? Have seen different info on a few different sites and just wanted to confirm with the experts :)

 

Is this also a requirement if you do a symbolic ceremony in Mexico?

Thanks much for the clarification.

 

I think we envisioned spending more days relaxing after the wedding v.s. 4 days prior to the wedding in Mexico. Definitely gives us something more to think about!

Can any of the past brides tell me if you thought the video was worth it? After seeing what some of you are saying about the cocktail party - I'm starting to agree that it's not necessary. I'm thinking of doing the "Love" package instead of the "Ultimate" which does not include the live music or video, and it looks like the smallest video package is $650.

Is anyone else concerned about the recent increase in price at the resort? I am not getting married until December 19th, but since it is so close to Christmas I wanted to suggest that my guests book now. Any suggestion?

    • 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.
