    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!

                  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!
