New here, need a little help!

Recommended Posts

Ok so I contacted Roxanna and she is supposed to have been emailing me in 30 minutes after speaking with the hotel manager. This was about 2 hours ago but I hope it just means he is considering lowering the room prices! If not, I saw another couple who had their wedding here but ended up staying at the Flamingo Resort and Spa which they said was only 5 minutes away. If this is the case we would probably offer both hotels to our guests as accomadations. It is a little cheaper at $140 instead of the $170 we are being offered and that is not including any type of group rate with the Flamingo yet. I would consider having our wedding there but I believe it will be too crowded and the more I think about it the more I know the location I want is the Bahia-just wish they had cheaper hotels nearby for some of our "frugal" guests, lol.

Denee,

 

Just some FYI, Playa Hermosa is set on a 800 meter total beach length, it gives you a feel of being a little enclosed (rocky coves both ends). The north end is the entrance to Villa Sol Hotel. It is a bay and the waters are extremely calm (a plus for kids and swimming), good departing point for snorkeling tours, fishing, sunset sail and water skiing. The hotel is up on a mountainside about 10min away (steep drive). A good price point hotel to stay at (for other options for your guests) Mangaby. We actually had a wedding booking at this hotel 5 years ago. The people of the hotel have had a couple of weddings. They are extremely helpful and nice. Nice restaurant with nice view.

Last wedding's bride at Bahia Sol offered her email so you could talk to her directly about her experience with everything. Ask Roxana to give it to you. I am emailing her with the email contact. Some of her friends stayed elsewhere as well. May have some interesting ideas for you.

Ok so yet another hotel that I had tried to contact before got in touch with me finally and they seem really nice and informative. It is Hotel Bula Bula. It seems like it is in a very nice secluded area but not too far from Tamarindo and they have a private beach where I can have the ceremony. Plus accommadations are not as expensive. How is this hotel with weddings? I am supposed to be receiving some pictures from the manager later today of weddings there but it seems like a good place.

I know the place. I used to spend time in Playa Grande a couple of months out of the year from California. Playa Grande is very nice but very isolated from Tamarindo by the estuary. Playa Grande is a reserve, so not much can be built up. Not many restaurants or activities. Because you would be on the estuary side it would be buggy (we used to have dinner there a couple of nites out the week but had to deal with the mosquitoes). The beach side is not so much. Not much nite life there at all. At least in Tama or Flamingo you can get out to other restaurants, bars and activities.

Denee :)

My fiance and I are entertaining the idea of having our wedding at Bula Bula...I was wondering if Bula Bula ended up being your choice and if you could share your experiences :)  Thanks so much :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
