October Bride - Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

I am getting married in the Riviera Maya at the Grand Velas this October. As I have absolutely no time to do much planning, I am hoping to get some good ideas here that will make my planning smoother.

 

While I have picked the resort, I still need to find a good Photographer, DJ and locations for off site activies (including cocktail board ride, rehersal dinner in Playa del Carmen, and day after brunch in Playa del Carmen).

 

Would love to get other ideas for activies as many of my guests will not be staying in the Grand Velas (too expensive) and I still want us to be able to do things together. I have already added a trip to the ruins.

 

Thanks so much!

You will find great information on this forum. Just search what you are looking for. I'm also getting married in the riviera maya and I'm using Del Sol as my photographer, I have heard amazing things about them and their works looks awesome. Good Luck Planning!

Congrats!

So great to finally find a bride planning a wedding at the Grand Velas! Maybe we can help each other?! I'm very familiar with Playa... and would love feedback on the Grand Velas since I'm hoping to have my wedding there next year.

For the rehersal dinner, I can suggest a few places but it really depends on how many guests you have. Let's see, Mosquito Blue is my favorite (best drinks!). Mosquito Beach would be a fun place for brunch after the wedding too. My best friend lived in Playa for 2 months, and she really liked 'La cueva del Chango' restaurant, she loved the food and decor inside the restaurant. Hope this helps a bit!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
