      We brought our photographers with us, but my husband was very picky about photography so there was really no other option. It was nice though, having them there the entire day. We have pictures of us getting ready, pictures of the ceremony, reception, and the next day we did trash the dress. All of our photos are amazing and it was great for us to be able to meet them and get to know them a bit prior to the wedding.

        Hey Ladies!!

         

        Thanks for the information about photographers... we still haven't decided what to do but we do have some time to think about it!

         

        On an exciting note that I wanted to share with you all though is that we received our pricing (that is at an excellent rate!) and once deposits are paid by November 22, 2012, we will  booked for our trip November 6-13, 2013 and the next step will be to follow up with the cordinators and book my day! 

         

        Does anyone have a day recommendation?   We are going to legally get married at home so it will just be symbolic ceremony so I am not sure how many days we have to be there before the actual day!

         

        I am so so excited to be one step closer to all of this!  You ladies have given me so many great ideas, I cannot wait for everyone to pay deposits so I can move along with the rest of my planning!!

          Hi, everyone! Well, we've made the important decision to host our wedding at the Gran Porto Real in Playa on April 13, 2013. We're staying at The Royal, but the times/locations that we wanted to host the ceremony and reception were unavailable so we decided to move it next door. This option has actually worked out quite nicely as it gives our budget concious guests another option without having to pay for a day pass or other fees for the wedding day. I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar experience? We're hosting the ceremony at 6p at the Gazebo, and the cocktail and private reception on the beach immediately following the reception. I have so many questions (menus, decor, vendors, which beach is best, etc, etc.) and am wondering if there is anyone out there struggling with the same? Would love to get together to share ideas/info! As of now we have 35ish guests and think we'll end up somewhere between 50-60 total. Most guests as of right now will be staying at The Royal.

            We got married on day 4... I think that you need a minimum of 2 days at the resort before the wedding, but it was nice to have it later in the week. It gave us time to get used to the resort and all of our guests plenty of time to relax and enjoy their vacation, and we loved being able to have our last night out as singles in Playa del Carmen!

              Hi everyone...

              I'm a newbie here but have scheduled our wedding at the Gran Porto for June 2013. I'm hoping that someone can help me figure out whether to get married on North Beach? Or Central Beach?  Originally I had thought North Beach because of the seclusion but I'm not so thrilled with the bar and stacks of beach chairs being the backdrop of our reception! The photos of Central Beach (I'm assuming) have the beach cabanas as a backdrop to the reception and it seems much more visually attractive, but I can't figure out if it's too close to the pool? Will it be too loud?  Has anybody been and could shed some light on this as my Wedding Coordinator hasn't answered me and I need to make a decision stat! lol! Also, any other advice would be greatly appreciated!!

               

              Thanks...

              ~Stina

                  Hiya! Just wondering who your Wedding Coordinator is? I keep having loooooong delays in response with mine and was wondering if you're having the same issues? Which beach will you be getting married on? Can't wait to touch base throughout this process and help each other along! Have a great night! ~Stina

                    Hello Ladies!

                     

                    I just thought I should share all of my fantastic news with you as I am so excited!!

                     

                    We are officially booked for our trip from November 6-13, 2013 although  hubby and I might stay an extra week (with Aubrey) because we are vacation spoiled and have never stayed anywhere less than 2 weeks.  It just doesn't seem like enough time when you're only there for 7 days!  We'll see how planning and budgeting and pricing works out for the extension but I really hope we can work something out!!

                     

                    Our wedding day will be on November 8, 2013. I know it is shortly after we arrive but there are two reasons.  One is that we will just be having the symbolic ceremony there as we will be legally married here before we leave and two because I would love to have it at the start of the weekend and spend the rest of the week celebrating and hanging out with friends!  It's going to be fantastic!

                     

                    I just cant wait for the rest to come along, I know it will happen fast! But I already have so many ideas running through my head,  OOT bags, bridal party gifts, parent gifts, DIY's for the ceremony and reception! Busy busy busy!
