    Hi Everyone-

    First, just got to say that this forum has been great. I haven't posted anything but my first introduction, but I have found so much info on here so far!

    I mostly haven't posted anything because I wasn't sure when and where I was going to get married. Originally I was thinking Privilege Aluxes on Isla Mujeres, but after going and doing a site inspection, it just didn't fit my needs. The hotel was beautiful, but the service and most importantly (for me anyway) the food was sub-par. Also, I'm planning on having a very diverse group of guests, and I don't think there would be enough to keep everyone entertained. Isla Mujeres is gorgeous though, and I recommend going there for a honeymoon, or day trip.

    So that being said, I think I'm moving it towards Playa Del Carmen. My FI and I stayed at the Grand Sunset Princess last June, and I think we're going to have all of our guests stay there. We're also going to have the ceremony there, but not the reception. Without going into details, I'm just going to say that after speaking with the WC there, I don't want to have the reception there. Nothing against her, the hotel is just a bit too inflexible for me.

    I'm pretty sure, though I haven't set anything in stone, that I'm going to have the reception at Blue Parrot in Playa Del Carmen. Paula has been great, and everything fits my budget. Does any one have experiences and/or feedback they'd like to share with me? I'd love to see pictures, and hear first hand if I could.

        Congratulations and welcome finally to the forums! The Blue Parrot sounds wonderful... while we have not personally shot a wedding there I think I know where it will be held and it looks amazing! Plus you have the world famous Blue Parrot to go after with your guests when they shut you down at 11 and your not ready to stop! haha Playa is a wonderful town and we hope you love it as much as we do.
        Best of luck with all your plans.

          Congrats and making the first decision. I personally don't know anything about blue parrot but I'm sure there has to be some information on here somewhere for you. Good luck and happy planning!

                  You're gonna LOVE being a part of this amazing forum!!!

                  My best advice as you start down the road to your wedding day would be just to take your time and do lots of research before you book or buy anything (attire, flowers, you name it!) and make sure it's all that you've envisioned for your BIG DAY!

                  And that's where this phenomenal site comes in: BDW has proven to be invaluable in my planning, and it's comforting to know that there are other brides and grooms out there experiencing the same highs and lows during their planning process -- a friend is always just on the other side of your computer screen!

                  CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to BDW...it's a wedding-planning paradise!

                    it sounds great.one of the reasons we are going to to playa de carmen is because we are there for 2weeks and we enjoy exploring whilst on holiday and there is tons to do there and its close to lots of other places too.
