    Haha...now I'm wondering whether the Gabi bridge will be a better location for us to get married at rather than in the gazebo!!  So hard to choose without having actually been there! What do you think ladies?? Sharon

    I chose the Gabi Bridge!! I think it's the perfect happy medium so you still have the beach as a backdrop for photos, but the comfort & roominess of the bridge for your guests ;)

      The photographer from the resort that they use is Blue Lens Caribe - not sure who their DJ is but pricing is in the customization list!! We are using a different photographer but beware of their off resort vendor fees for ANY service you use outside of the ones the resort does - photographer for example was a $1000 charge per day!!! As for flowers etc they use Perla from Alquimia events for all the decor etc but what I'm finding is I need to give very specific descriptions for answers to what I'm asking!! Hope that helps!!!

        Is having a reception at Hadar extra?

         

        Thanks chicas!I

        I am actually getting married the day before you July 5th 2013! If you are down in Mexcio already hope you are enjoying your time! I was thinking about paying extra and upgrading to have our reception at the Sunrise Grill but wanted to see what you thought of this venue? Is it in a good location with a nice setup? If any of you ladies have been to the resort and familiar with the sunrise grill your feedback on this venue location would be greatly appreciated!

        I am having my ceremony at the Gabi bridge because I think it is the best of both worlds...view of the beach without the mess of the sand.

        I believe the Sunrise Grill is the pool restaurant.  It is right next to the pool (open to it) if I'm remembering.  I didn't see much of it though...

          Oh wonderful!! I guess I'll be seeing you around the resort :)

          Mexico was wonderful, our site visit went GREAT! I am so excited, I wish July would come sooner.

          The Sunrise Grill is by the pool. Not to be confused with the restaurant called The Grill. I think for cooler months other than July and August (due to insane humidity) the Sunrise would be great. I always pictured my destination wedding to be outdoors but factoring July's weather I don't think my guests will be comfortable. Plus they might get eaten alive with all those mosquitos. 
          The wedding planners Maria and Ana mentioned that if you do it at Sunrise, you have to put more effort into decorating such as uplighting and maybe lanterns since there's not much going on except for the lighting from the pool area.  It's a lovely area and I would choose it had it not been for the humidity factor.  It's a big area, enough for 100 guests I think.

            Do you think the mosquitos are only bad in the summer?  My wedding is in December, and I wonder if it will be a problem.  Thanks!

              I've been to Playa twice in December & have never really run into any mosquito problems...... I don't find it very humid so I think you'll be fine!  The fall/winter weather is great...... part of the reason I chose mid November  ;)

                We live here in Playa, and I can attest to the fact that mosquitos aren't much of a problem in December unless you're in the middle of the jungle.  On the beach it's generally very breezy so that helps as well....
