Hi Jen,

 

Im pretty sure we are going with Sandos Playacar Beach Resort bc we have been told it has the best beach in Playa Del Carmen and they have really good wedding rates. A few other brides went down and did some site visits and found Sandos the most reasonable and the best value for any add-ons. The dont seem to nickel and dime you on everything. Its not set in stone for us, but its my main choice right now. We are trying to keep the costs down as we are having a very small informal wedding and we dont want our guests paying more then $1800 per person. Sandos falls right in that category. I thought of the RIU too, but honestly I havent really looked into it all the much yet. I probably will in the next 6 months when we really have to decide. We do know that we will be going to the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort for our honeymoon, well atleast thats the plan. I feel like I change my mind more often then I change my socks...lol

Where are you in Calgary? We just moved outside of calgary last winter - do you know where Didsbury is?

thanks and congrats to you too. i will definalty let you know if i need anything!!! we are also looking at playa del carmen cause we met at the iberostar tucan there about 5 years ago. we just heard a few things about that resort like there not very good with negotiating with big group and they only offer wedding packages for up to 10 people and they make you pay for every additional person. we've heard really good things about the RUI and there discounts they give.. so that's what i'm focusing on right now!!!!

have you figured out a resort yethuh.gif

hey jennybell,

sorry i haven't gotten back sooner but i'm a FA for westjet so i'm on the road alot!!! i live about 2 mins from downtown in the nw. not really sure where you live but i as my fi and he knows where it is!!!
i am going to have to look at that Sando's resort!!! next week i'm going to ontario to visit my fam and try on bridesmaids dresses for my friend who is getting married next year so i thought i might go see some travel agents i know there just to get an idea.
i think for our honeymoon were going to go to an adults only and i think we like one of the karisma hotels. still not sure but we don't want any kids around and my fi said he will pay whatever for our honeymoon but just for the wedding we are trying to put a buget on it for our guests.
when i get some info on the rui's i will let you know!!!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
