    I received the same attachments and would be happy to email them to anyone who wants them if they are not accessible on here. They reccomend that you book your spa appointments, hair and make-up in advance. All of those prices are included in the lists, bridal hair is $89.

If solarium area is chosen, a CD player is not provided, extra fee will apply." It now reads " If solarium or beach area is chosen....". They told me they were changing the site in the email and I had just missunderstood the previous wording. It seems pretty clear to me but I am starting to realize that it is pretty much whatever they decide at the moment to charge or not charge for. On another hand, Lorena has been absolutely fabulous trying to schedule everything and my planner did get to me over 2 months prior to the wedding. If you thought the CD player was included, I recommend you challenge it on the previous wording. Maybe if they get enough fallout from it they will honor the prior advertisement. 

       



      I do remember reading that as well. Can you post the original wording for those of us who were unable to copy that before they changed it? It would be much appreciated1 Thank you_Danitha

        I was actually going to say the same thing.  Even better - any chance you could scan that print out so we can print it too?

          Just wondering if anyone who's gotten married at playa car used the dress cleaning/steaming services prior to their wedding?  I am nervous about sending my dress to Cancun 3 days before my wedding, when they say it takes 2-3 days to ship, clean, and ship back.

           

          Did anyone take their dress somewhere in the city of Playa del Carmen to be steamed?

            The original wording is in quotes in my first post. They did finally in my case honor the original wording and provide the CD player at no additional cost. I would glady scan the copy except I cannot find the copy. Luckily, they decided to honor it anyhow. Like I said before, quote that exact wording and they will have to honor it. They are aware of the problem and have changed it on the website for future brides. The beach was included until about 2 weeks ago.

                Hey ladies! I just got back yesterday from our wedding and everything was amazing! You won't be disappointed at all, the resort is stunning and the wedding planners do a great job. Ours was on the beach at sunset and everything was perfect. I'll try to post some pictures, but for now I'll just give a recap of what we did...

                 

                We did the complimentary package, on the beach, and I did end up paying for the sound setup. We got the free cocktail hour and did it on the beach too so they could keep playing our music there. It worked out perfectly. We brought our own photographer from home, but did use $500 resort credits to have an edited video of the ceremony (they recorded the cocktail hour too since it was all right there). Be prepared to pay $65 for shipping of the DVD if you leave before they can finish editing it (3 business days)

                 

                We chose the "international" menu for cocktail hour and it was awesome. They also set up a full bar. After cocktail hour we had a semi-private reception in Terrazza, their Italian restaurant. Everything was perfect. We only had 17 people so they put us all in a big square. I was worried about not having a private reception, but for our group it was perfect. Everyone cheered when I walked through the restaurant, lol. The food there is definitely the best, but if you're picky about your steak be advised red meat is not their best- at any of the restaurants actually. We had a choice of shrimp risotto and filet. They bring your cake to the restaurant at the end of dinner- literally, best wedding cake I've ever had. We did the free one in vanilla and it was huge! Way too much cake for us, so they sent our guests an extra slice to go. It was so good we had them cancel the cannoli we'd planned to have. We also ordered the Mayan coffee for everyone and got a little table-side show. 

                 

                After dinner we just changed and hung out all night, drinking and enjoying the resort activities (they had karaoke that night). We were a very low-key group and it was exactly what we wanted. All our guests had a blast and I would definitely go back there again. Those that are worried about communication ahead of time, don't be! I had heard about this when I started planning so I just took it in stride and had faith they would do a good job and they did. Wilma was our on-site planner and she was perfect. So calm and had everything together when we arrived.

                 

                The only downside if I could find any was the bouquet. I got the free one with white roses and lillies, and it was beautiful. Unfortunately it only lasted through the ceremony. I threw the bouquet at cocktail hour and it basically fell apart. I just pulled out individual flowers though and gave roses to the guys to wear in their shirt pockets and gave the lillies to the ladies to put in there hair. I ordered the BM bouquets from an outside florist I googled and they held up perfectly! Definitely better than the resort and only $35 a bouquet.

                 

                I'll try to post some of the non-pro pics, there aren't many up yet :-)
