Happy new year ladies!  

 

I'm just a few weeks away and it's crunch time!  

 

For those doing a night time reception on the terraces, are you going with the extra lights or no lights?  I asked Ramon several times and he has reassured me that the standard lighting is sufficient; however, I'm concerned it might still be too dark.

In November the sun sets very early.  During our dinner it was dark and the lighting supplied by the resort was perfect!  You have nothing to worry about.  Trust in Ramon, he knows what he is doing and is wonderful!!

@@jh0510038, I'll be there right after you!  I'm still waiting on some confirmations from Ramon as well and am starting to get a bit nervous.  We haven't sent our wedding form in because we haven't finalized everything... Ah!

It's ok to send it in before things are finalized.  The form is to give the planners a good idea of what you want and to get the ball rolling before you arrive.  I left a LOT on my form blank when I sent it in.  At the meeting we had with Ramon 2 days before the wedding we went over the entire form and he helped us fill in the blanks.  He provided great suggestions for things I was not certain of.

 

Things will be wonderful!  Try not to stress ;)

This was included for us in the Divine package.  You list the ingredients for your signature cocktail in the planning form that is sent in 30-40 days prior to your wedding.  We for some reason had 2 signature cocktails - one during cocktail hour and then a second different drink (again your choice) was served with dinner- after appetizers before the main course.  I thought it was a nice touch!

Yes the signature drink is included in the Divine package and as Dina Q to be said the planning form give you an option for the cocktail hour and one during the reception.

Hey all!  I am getting to the point where I need to decide if I am going to ship stuff to the resort in advance or carry it all down with us.  I like the idea of it being there ahead of time, but also I'm nervous about things going missing, or not arriving in time.  Did anyone ship down there?  what was your experience?

Has anyone used or using Floreria Riviera for their flowers? Had contact with?

I reached out to them in November, made arrangements, and paid for my flowers (a lot of money). I now cannot get in contact with Alina. I have reached out twice now and no luck. The facebook page is no longer available as well as twitter. My wedding is ten days away. FREAKING OUT!

Worst case scenario you can still likely get flowers from the resort (at least the ones included in your package!).

    • 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
