If you had to choose between Xcaret and Xelha to do with a group which would you recommend.?  I figured FI and I can go to both since we'll be down there for 14 days but our guests will only be there for 5 days for the most part, I am looking for an awesome recommendation to give them.

 

Thanks

Also regarding tours, I guess it depends what sort of thing you like. As I'm from the uk we do not have the same inclusive trips but ones we have enjoyed in the past are xcaret, coco bongo, xel ha and akumal beach to swim with turtles. We love them all but everyone is different. Let me know if you have any questions about these.

I've been to Xcaret twice and we loved it- the underground rivers that are a natural lazy river are awesome!

Have any past brides used the Violinist, I am having a hard time picking songs from the list they provided me. Can any of you send me your Ceremony song list?

 

Thanks,

Nicole

Good question nabreu7! 

 

We just sat down this past weekend and figured out the main songs.  I'm not sure the official names but the songs that are for when everyone is walking in and the processional exit song and first dance.  Are there other songs I need to worry about?

 

Entrance song:  Siege of the Madrigal - His mom thinks this is too sombre but I don't hear it.  If anyone youtube's this and feel that way, let me know

Processional:  Marry Me - yes, it's a cliche now but I still love it

Exit song:  I have no idea.

First dance:  Billy Joel - Just the Way You Are

Hi Ladies !

 

getting married Aug 20th Moon Palace ...

 

wedding coordinator emailed today to make changes to our plans:

 

We had a dinner reservation at Barracuda ( Steak House on Sunrise Side) and now she says they are unable to accomodate us.

 

she has reccomended the Caribbean Resturant.  Anyone have any thoughts on this place ?  It has a set menu that we pick main entree...

 

A little disappointed about the Barracuda , and I am open to other suggestions. 

 

We prefer not to do the buffet only because we dont want our guests waiting in line the majority of the time.

 

Thank for your help in advance!

seasidebride - El Caribeno is delicious. It was our favorite restaurant. You can meet upstairs on the terrace for drinks beforehand or go up there afterwards. We went to Barracuda our first night and there was a long wait, some of our meals didn't turn out great either. I think you ended up with a much better reservation.

I would suggest a reservation at Arrecifes they have a great terrace location for your private party or if you want (or if the weather isn't great) you can sit inside & the area they set you up in is pretty private.  You do have to go to the buffet line for the salad (but I've never seen a long line there), so your guests would just have to get up one time.  Otherwise all the meats & then desserts are brought to the table.  We had a wonderful experience there, and your guests wouldn't be limited to one entree.  The first time we went to Moon Palace we loved the Caribbean Restaurant, but the last time we went it was our least favorite dinner.  I'm sure you'll have a nice dinner at either place though.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
