HI everyone! Just joined as was searching for answers to a million queries i have about planning our wedding at NS!  

Does anyone have a copy of the Budget spreadsheet they could email at all? Keep finding out about more and more charges for various things and wanted an up to date cost of everything so i can work out the best way to do things (set up costs/outside vendors/reception extension etc!)

Was so excited when we booked now starting to panic about all the hidden extra costs!!!

sorry me again!! Does anyone also have pics of the lights they paid for on Tequila terrace? Seeing so much about the fees for putting them up, but also $850 + tax for the chinese lanterns i had my heart set on is crazy. What do the Italian lights look like? Also what are the Luminara referred to in the wedding guide at $5 each?  AGGHHH brain meltdown at moment over this organising!!!

Sorry for the delay! I just got back from my wedding and decided to bring our own lights after much debate because it was still spendy but my husband and i were glad we did! It added a nice romantic touch. It isn't necessary but it's really nice! I haven't received photos from photographers yet with night shots but this is before the reception started.

Thanks for the reply!! I got some pics off my WC and still am debating. They look beautiful can't make my mind up weather to save the hassle and book them or bring our own....depends on budget in the end! Your reception looks beautiful!

hi, has anyone used dj mannia or deorromix recently? mannia is double the price that deorromixx is and just wondering if he is worth the money or why he is so much ? im getting married at the now sapphire on may 4,2019. Mannia is 900 for dj and 650 for dance floor and then tax so 1798 total and then the resort fee and deorromixx is 900 total he doesnt charge tax and that includes dj and dance floor, im a little skeptical since half the price but i also dont want to over pay for same services, and then im also curious about outside vendors for flowers and photos that anyone has used recently thanks :)

Hi!! I live in the area and I'm very involved in weddings, I haven't heard about neither DJ's, but there are A LOT of options in Riviera Maya... what I can recommend is that you check that their facebook page, instagram are up to date as well as their reviews in weddingwire, bodas.com.mx, (mexican wedding webpage similar than weddingwire). If deorromixx is an external vendor from the hotel, then is normal that their prices are half than the hotel in house DJ but it doesn't mean is a low quality, just do a little research on social media :) 
 
For floral design vendor I can recommend Cherry Blossom and photo/ video Roc'n'love photography, they are both local with good prices and great quality but before hiring them check the external vendor fee with your wedding planner, hotels charge a from $300 to $1,000 usd just for letting them into the property
 
If you need any other tip feel free to ask me ;) 
 
Good luck !!

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
