CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

 

Have you been to the area before?

 

I think the biggest thing to consider first of all is if you are interested in more of the all inclusive resort style wedding or if you are leaning more towards an a different idea.  This can be accommodations at condos, boutique hotel, villa, house, etc, and then the wedding can be held at a number of different locations such as beach clubs, chapels, restaurants, etc.

 

 

There are a lots of different options and ideas you can explore - all depends on your vision and a bit on your budget.

 

If you get a chance to come down for a site inspection those can be very helpful in visualizing everything too!!!

 

HAVE FUN!!!!! :)

Leanne

THanks Leanne..

I have not been the area but friend of ours got married down there. Destination wedding seems to fit what were looking for the best. We want something small and intimate maybe 30-40 people if that. If I could have it my way .. Id love to just show up with my wedding dress and have things set up for us!! I want a drama/stress-less wedding :) if thats possible..

The Royal in Playa del Carmen!  I am a little biased though lol.  I am getting married at The Royal in Cancun, but I've heard that Royal PDC is awesome.  It is all inclusive and adults only, and their sister hotel is Gran Porto Real PDC and it is family friendly.  It really depends on what your interests, and budget are. 

 

Congrats! And good luck on your search!

I think your first step is to determine what you envision for your wedding, and narrow it down from there by price, features, location, etc. We really wanted something small and intimate, so we pretty much ruled out the all-inclusives right away. We just booked at Mahekal Beach Resort and I'm really excited to get started planning all the details. It's a huge weight off your shoulders once you book a venue!

AlyMay, when is your wedding?!  My wedding group is staying at the Mahekal and I will have all my events there.  My wedding itself is off site, but I love Mahekal's atmosphere.  I hope you are enjoying planning!!!!

Our wedding is 4/21/12. I hope you'll let me know how your stay at Mahekal goes. I love that it's a smaller resort, but that also means fewer people have stayed there and it's harder to find tips and advice. So far we've pretty much just reserved the date, so I haven't started much of the "real" planning yet.

You are exactly, right. Not many brides have stayed there, so there aren't a lot of reviews and suggestions, but I fell in love with the size and feel of the resort.  I visited in June and met a couple of the people who work there.  Urs is fantastic...he's the food and beverage guy.  He responds quickly and seems like he has put together a lot of events.  I am planning to do a cocktail welcome reception and the rehearsal dinner there.  They have been pretty open to hearing my ideas and trying to make it work.
I will definitely let you know how everything goes and pass along anything that I learn along the way!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
