    I thought I had found all the Indian-related posts, but somehow missed this one!


    Shimona, we are having a traditional Hindu wedding in a mandap on the beach, but in Tulum. The one drawback to Tulum is that we aren't having everyone stay at the same place; the beach is dotted with tons of boutique hotels... though there are resorts (Dreams Tulum, Gran Bahia Principe among them). We're expecting between 100-150 guests and chose Las Ranitas in Tulum.


    Sandy, we've had so much difficulty finding mehndi services! I will contact you separately about this. Thank you!

      Dear Ess and Pea :  I know Henna artist are not easy in this area, and some of them have exclusivity  with some companies.

              Hi Beach2013,


              My Name is Varsha and I was once a Indian DW bride. After planning and coordinating my own wedding from A-Z (because the wedding coordinators at the hotels did not know much at all about my needs) I decided to open my own DW planning company. I specialize in Indian weddings and offer everything from A-Z. Some of the services include Indian food catering, Mehndi, Horse hiring, DJ, Lights, entertainment systems, Indian style gazebo, hair, makeup etc.


              please PM me or email me at fairytaledestinationweddings@hotmail.com or kumar_varsha@hotmail.com


              Happy planning :)

                Hi Beach2013,


                Both locations are fabulous but we recently had the pleasure to capture a traditional Indian Wedding at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya.

                    Hey all,


                    This is my first post - my fiance and I are looking to get married around January 2014 and struggling with one BIG thing.  We need a fully Indian, vegetarian menu.  We are looking at the Grand Velas - SO BEAUTIFUL =) and I know they have experience with Indian weddings.  However, I am not sure if they offer the type of food we are looking for.  If anyone could share any information that would be amazing!

                      Hi Nishi,


                      The latest Hindu wedding we shot at was at the JW Marriott.  They had their food catered by the hotel and Taste of India which is an Indian restaurant in Cancun.  The food was excellent!



                      Here are some of the other vendors we worked with.


                      Wedding Planner - Elite Events Management

                      Venue - JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa

                      Caterer - JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa
                      Caterer - Taste of India
                      Hair/Make-Up - MVP
                      Decorator - Weddings by Zuniga 
                      Sound/Lighting -  AVP
                      Mehndi - Darcy Vasudev
                      DJ - DJ Suj
                      Priest - Vimesh Thakker   - (played the priest in the movie Picture Perfect with Jennifer Aniston)
                      Elite Events Management spent a year planning the wedding and did an excellent job and were incredibly nice!    The decorator took care of the flowers which I thought were really lovely.  
                      All of the vendors were top notch!
                      Happy Planning!
