Thanks Wendy5512, I will copy you and add myself to the thread.  Wedding is booked for 5/9/2012 at 1pm.  I have a new wedding coordinator though, Roxy.  I guess Monica is too busy - this may be good but will let you know...

Melissa43 -

 

The steel pan player was really nice, I just would have liked that he played the bridal chorus, and I am sure he probably would but he specifically needs to be told apparently.  It cost $500 per hour.  My guest really enjoyed the steel pan player, however I felt cheated since I didn't get to listen to it except for when I came down the aisle, because afterwards we took photos while he continued to play (I assume) and by the time we got back he was gone and my "so called" 1 man calypso band was playing.

 

Here are the 2 cd's I had purchased;

http://www.amazon.com/Steel-Drum-Island-Tropical-Collection/dp/B0033A9L8G/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1310433840&sr=8-2

 

The first time I heard the Bridal Chorus (here comes the bride) on the CD I started crying!

 

The sand ceremony was through the resort and it costs $100, it was a nice way to include the kids...lots of the sand did not make it in the jar (which was funny) -while we were taking photos the kids were playing in the sand...too bad the photographer missed the candid shots, it was so cute!

I tried not to stress out about most of it, the calypso band ordeal was probably most annoying, particuliarly because I don't like being lied to!

Ladies~ I have just added a new album - pictures of the island & resort!  It's hard to remember to take pictures when you are taking it all in!

 Enjoy!

Brandy, you got some really great shots of the resort!! Makes me miss it so much!!  I completely agree I had every intention of getting all kinds of shots for the ladies on here but you get so wrapped up in everything its hard to.

 

And Im so sorry to hear about everything you went through!!!! It just blows my mind how one girl can have everything go right and another girl can have a ton of things go wrong, I think thats why its important to remember that things can go wrong and you just have to stay calm and try to go with the flow as best as possible. I believe the calypso band is only actually 2 people, Im gonna go back and look at my photos but they should have informed you if you couldnt get the entire package!

Yep two guys, my only thing was I had always thought a calpyso band had a steel drum, but this one did not, but like I said before there were still good and created a great atmosphere!

    • 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
