      Ooooh how exciting!  I've always wanted to go there!  I can't wait to see your pictures!  Good luck with your last couple of days before you leave.  We leave on Sunday and I'm starting to feel like I'm running out of time to do everything!  ;)

              We just came back from our wedding at las Palapas on 12/4. It was amaizing ! I will post another note with a detailed review of our vendors, place, pictures, etc. Before I do that, I want to let you know that it gets pretty cold at night. Ask your guests to bring a light sweater or a chawl. I wanted to have my reception on the beach but had to change it cause it was too cold. I mean for Playa standards.It turned out to be better. Also, make sure to ask your guests to be careful with the speed limits on the highway. We had no major issues, but many of our friends got a ticket cause of speeding ! Some had to pay 350 usd ! auch !

               

              Hertz offers a nice shuttle service, safe and cheaper than getting the hotel service.

               

              I quick review, our most amazing experience at the wedding was the band, yes ! BALANCE was the best thing ever. We were so impressed at how they kept everyone dancing and how well they played all kind of music, salsa, rock, cumbia, pop, jewish, etc. UNBELIEVEABLE ! 

               

               

              More to come .....

               

              Congratulations to everyone !

                Welcome back Playalucia let us know once you post your review to look at the pictures. You mention is cold at the moment, I was wondering if you got married in Mexico and if you did what part of Mexico so I can prepare my guest, we leave in two weeks. Is the cold during the day or only at night time? Thank you it really helps out.

                  Sure, I got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, near Cancun. It's pretty warm during the day - you can swim and do all the beach stuff. At night, we needed a sweater. Just be aware of that as the temperature drops significantly.

                   

                  All the best !

                  I will post my review once I get the pictures and video.

                      Hi ladies, I'm back!  Here's a post I did on another site, and thought I'd share with you!  :)  There are a few non-pro pics.  Can't wait to hear all about everyone's weddings!!!

                       

                      We were picked up at 5:30 am in a 20 person limo bus arranged by my dad. It was awesome to be with a bunch of our family and wedding party, pop some champagne, and be relaxed heading to the airport.  Because we had such a large booking, we were all given VIP lounge passes, so we all had breakfast, coffee and for some - beer, while waiting to board our plane.  The flight was great (West Jet), although we had to pay for our meals, they did however pay for a round of drinks for Peter and I.  It was cute, they announced that there were two couples going to Mexico to get married, and they passed around napkins to everyone and had them write down their worst wedding advice, and then we got them at the end of the flight.  We had so much fun reading them before we landed.

                      We arrived in Mexico and boarded a bus to take us to our resort.  It was good since there was so many of us, that there was only one other couple on the bus, so we only had to stop at one other resort before ours.  The driver allowed us to stop and pick up beers and water for the hour and a half drive to our resort.

                      Check in went smoothly, although some of the rooms had one king size bed, and there were a couple guys sharing a room.  So we had to get them to bring in extra beds.  But other than that, everyone was pleased with their rooms.

                      The days leading up to the wedding were so much fun!  Our friends and families meshed well, and everyone had a ton of fun together.  We had our welcome dinner the night after we arrived, that is when we handed out our welcome bags.  We had a mariachi band come and they played for a bit and Peter and I danced :)  We went on a group excursion to Tulum and swam in the ocean there.  It is so gorgeous there, it reminded me of beaches in Thailand.

                      Our wedding was mid-week, on the Thursday.  My MOH spent the night with me the night before, and we had a Grey Goose and vodka before bed and I wrote my cards to my parents.  Woke up and had breakfast with my wedding party and my mom, lounged by the pool for a bit and then went to my room to shower.  Went and had my hair done at the spa with my mom.  During getting my hair done, one of Peter's groomsmen came in with a flower and a card from Peter, it was really sweet.  Then, later, another groomsmen came in with a card that said "Something Old".  Peter had said he would be taking care of my something old, so I was super curious!  In it was a charm that his grandpa had given to his grandma on their wedding day, it was a little wedding bell.  So cute!  Throught the day, different groomsmen would come and drop off cards and gifts from Peter that said Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.  My something new was a new watch, something borrowed was a hotel pen to sign our license, lol, and my something blue was a Tiffany's necklace.  So thoughtful, and such a fun idea!

                      After the spa I came back to my room and got my make up done by a friend, and Peter's groomswoman.  I felt bad because she still had to get ready, and once she was done she only had about half an hour to get ready.  But she did an awesome job, and exactly what I wanted.

                      We were picked up in a club car, like a little golf cart at 3:55 pm and taken down to the beach.  I heard Peter's song that he walked down the aisle to "Kiss - I was made for loving you" start up, and he danced and high fived down the aisle.  He he.  When it was me and my dad's turn to go I was so freaking excited!  I thought I would be bawling, but I was sooooo happy and excited, I couldn't wipe the smile off my face!  Peter was the one emotional throughout the whole ceremony and I was the strong one!  LOL

                      The ceremony was perfect, I really liked the minister.  It was about 20 minutes long.  Afterwards we took some family shots, and then went off with our photographer to do group shots.  Dinner was at 6 to 8, and really yummy.  Afterwards we had a private poolside party from 8 - 11 where we did first dances and speeches.  Everyone's speech was so sweet, especially my dad's.  He came up with the idea a few days before our wedding to hand over the torch to Peter.  So he had someone in Mexico hand carve a torch!  While he was saying his speech, about how he was handing me over to Peter, in essence, handing him the torch, the Survivor theme song started playing, and then my MOH and the Best Man walked up carrying a lit torch!  My dad took it and handed it to Peter, Peter got on his knee and accepted it!  It was so funny, and awesome all in one!

                      After the poolside party we went to the Hacidenda, were the disco is, and sat around at these outdoor tables and danced, drank and partied.  When Peter and I finally got back to our room very late, it was decorated with rose petals, champagne, choclate covered strawberries, little gifts, and books.  My mom had set it all up, it was so sweet.

                      The rest of the week with everyone was awesome!  I couldn't wipe the smile off my face, we are so lucky to have such amazing friends and family.  Peter and I had a week honeymoon just the two of us once everyone left, it was so nice to unwind, relax and recharge.  We had the chance to go to the a la carte restaurants that week, and ate and drank ourselves silly!  All in all, it was like a dream, and the best 2 weeks of my life.
