    Hi Everyone,
    This is Winnie and Brian and we are getting married in Playa Del Carmen either on March 22 or 23rd. Just decided to go for it and we are now starting to plan a small 20-25 person wedding!! I know a bit crazy. Everyone is staying at private homes so we are going to organize a wedding not at a resort. Does anyone have any leads as to good locations to have a wedding and reception in Playa Del Carmen?

    Winnie and Brian

      OMG, congrats! And what a great idea to have everyone stayin private homes! I thought of doing that in Cabo, when we were deciding on the location...

      There's tons of advice and feedback here on this forum, so you'll see a bunch of locations in the wedding reviews and you might find yourself torn between a few places because there are so many. One of the more popular is The Royal Playa Del Carmen, since it's in the middle of downtown. Or there are so many others a little further, more secluded... but since you're not staying at the hotels, you may want to contact the WC's at the hotels to get more info and availability.

      Have fun planning!

          Congratulations Winnie and Brian! How exciting! In just 8 weeks, you two will be joined by the people who mean the most to you in a beautiful setting to celebrate. There are so many wonderful places for your ceremony and reception around the Playa del Carmen area. A place that is about 20 minutes south of town to consider is Blucacao. To get a feeling for the place, I'm including a slideshow from a wedding I photographed there. They had a Mayan wedding so you'll get to see what that is like too. Deneĩ + Jamie

          Another possibility if you want to say right in town, is the beach at the Blue Parrott.

          Whatever you decide will be wonderful!!! I wish you both much happiness.

                  Wow! And congrats! Here I was just wondering how in the world I'm going to get all of this done in 8 weeks (and we've been planning since August). :) Best of luck.
