The great thing about using an agent, (one of them) is that we can present you with options! If you know you will have at least 10 rooms, and it works best for you to hold a block of rooms using a group rate so you know you have the rooms there for sure for your guests we can go that way, but if you and your guests would like to book individually we can also do those price matches, book with Apple for you or whatever makes it work best for you! I would say that the majority of couples I work with do prefer to hold a block of rooms for their guests using a group contract. It locks the price in and makes sure that the rooms will be there when the guests begin to call. It also provides the best amenities for the bride and groom in terms of upgrades and free rooms and such, but we can also book at the lowest rate available for your guests at the time they are ready to reserve their room, and if it means doing a price match to one of the online search engines, we can do that with no problem!

By still directing the guests to book through your agent, we can keep track for you of who has booked, and alert the resort of all the names of the guests and ask that they be roomed in the same general area even if we are doing the bookings as individual ones.

We always try to find what works best for the couple and go from there!

So pretty....looks like you had tons of fun! Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to your review. I do have a couple questions, if you don't mind....

1.  Chair bows - did you bring your own? If so, do they take them from the ceremony to the reception, or did you buy enough to cover both?

2.  Reception dinner....are the plates at each place setting or not? I'm trying to figure out my place setting decor.

 

Thanks!

My WC had told me they are the 6 foot round tables, which seat 8-10, but that I get to pick the number.

Looking for help from some past brides.  Did anyone who had their reception in the bamboo room use paper lanterns on the ceiling?  I don't have a real good picture of the space and I really don't want it to look cluttered.  Any feedback?

Hello ladies!

 

Has anyone or is anyone planning to have their reception at Castaways?  We are getting married Dec 10, 2011. Our group outgrew the Bamboo Room which is what I was planning everything around. 

 

I want rectangle tables but have not seen any photos of someone who has used that set up in Castaways. 

 

I am looking for decoration ideas and layout (tables, dancefloor) for the room.

 

Photos would be a huge help too!

 

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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
