Thanks ladies!  July is way too early, so I'm definitely pushing it back!  I like the idea of it being a few months ahead of the wedding date, so that I have time to pre-plan for decorations, etc.

The DJ requested a list of "must play", "do not play" & the mother/son & bride/groom dance songs from us which we emailed to them before we arrived to the resort. It was nice to communicate with all the different people who would work with us on our day to make sure we are happy.

Happy planning everyone :)

 

Hi Kaycee - Which DJ did you guys use for your wedding and would you recommend to other brides?

Does anyone know what Now Jade's fee is to bring in external vendors? I can't seem to find it in my notes anywhere.  Thanks ladies :)

We just got back from our 2 week wedding/honeymoon fiesta and Now Jade was great.  If you have any questions just let me know.  I am hoping to get a review done this afternoon.

 

For those who had questions about the onsite photographer: 

We used a local photographer for the wedding whose work was amazing but still fairly inexpensive (Sascha Gluck) and I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. I HIGHLY suggest an outside photographer for the actual wedding.  The charge was supposed to be $65 per person (photographer and his assistant) to come on site that day but Pilar never put it on our bill. Since we had gotten a wedding package with photography we decided to use AdventurePhoto (the resort's onsite photographer) for a Trash The Dress session.  I went to look at their work and was not impressed with the wedding photos at all.  Very typical, posed photography.  If you are into the more journalistic approach, I suggest you look for an outside photographer.  However, they did an AMAZING job on the TTD session.  We requested to go to Maroma to shoot at an abandoned house and the pictures were phenomenal.  I wish I had some to share right now!  They drove us out there (about 25 min away, no extra charge) and spent an hour shooting at the house, around the land and then on the beach.  If you google "abandoned house Secrets Maroma" you can probably find some pictures to get an idea.  When we were picking out the photos they took for our book everyone around said it was the coolest location they had seen.  If you are interested, speak to Anthony at AdventurePhotos and he can set it up for you.

I'll have to keep this in mind, since we don't  really like the resort photography but have it included in the package.

    • 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.
