Hey girls! Thanks for the link to the pics, Erin.....absolutely beautiful!

 

I'm getting married at Jade on November 4, 2011.....50 booked just off our save the dates! GULP! :) We're getting married at the Pergola at 4pm, then having our cocktail reception (2 hours) at the Blue Beach Bar. Dinner after that....I'm not planning a formal reception w/ DJ, etc. I thought we would just all hit the dance club after dinner. We're not interested in doing the first dance, dollar dance, etc., like at traditional receptions, and were hoping for to transition our dinner to the club for dancing/drinks. Does this sound like a reasonable timeline for those that have been married there? Also, one bride told me the dance club isn't open every night.....does anyone know for sure? I'd hate to count on us going there to party if it's closed. Any insight on timeline, etc. would be helpful.

 

I had a phone conversation w/ Ana last week and it helped so much....communicating by email wasn't working for us. I'm bringing my own photographer and minister and by email she wasn't budging at all on me trading that for other services. Per our phone conversation, she's allowing us to trade it for any live music, more flowers or a DJ. We may go w/ the Caribbean trio for our cocktail reception.

 

Happy Planning!

I need help with my timeline of events. I'm getting married on June 21st. Sunset is suppose to be at 7:30ish.

 

What time shoud I start the ceremony? I was thinking 6:30, but my FI thinks that's to late. I'm worried if we start any sooner it's going to be HOT and the sun will be to bright for his eyes.

It depends on how long your ceremony will be, but I'd probably start around 6 instead of 6:30.  We started mine at 5:15 and i thought it was the perfect timing, but yours is on the longest day of the year.

Erin-

thanks for sharing pics! It looks like you guys had a blast!

 

Couple questions: how many guests did you have? what buffet did you choose? Any feedback on the food? Did you have the DJ MC the wedding?

We had 56 guests, we chose the IGUANAS buffet (delicious!), and yes we had the DJ MC the wedding.  He was great!

That's exciting! We'll stay through the following Thursday, so I'm sure we'll run into each other. We should definitely compare notes...and colors....maybe we can share some decorations! :)

We used DJ Doremixx. A week or 2 before we went down, we exchanged a few emails with our schedule of reception, our play list, and our do not play list.  They have a standard form they use. Then we scheduled a meeting for wednesday...two days before our wedding.  We were actually high maintenance with our music because my husband wanted very specific songs.  And for the father daughter dance, my dad and i started out with a slow song and then went into a fast funny song.  They created it right there for me in the meeting on the computer.  They did the first song, then did a cool record scratching sound, and went into our fast song.  They were absolutely incredible.

    • 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
