Our wedding is all booked...

 

18th September 2015 at 3pm

 

My coordinator told me to email in January with other requests.

 

I think I'm going to request to get married at the new Tulum location.

 

Would also like to have wedding dinner at the Brazilian Restaurant (Mixed Grill Place) I think it's by the gazebo? Does anyone know the correct name for this restaurant? Is the new Tulum wedding site far from it? I will also be booking pool side reception for evening with music etc.. If I choose the cheaper option drinks will they be upgraded same as in the day thats been previously mentioned?

 

I'm thinking of keeping with the resort photographer just to keep costs down? But if a bride who is near my date wants to share a cost of photographer I would be interested.

 

Ijust want my cake to be a simple two tier.. And then have my own topper and ribbon/diamond band put around the middle? Would the chef/wedding coordinator do this?

 

Does anyone know the cost of flowers on the wedding location?

 

Sorry for lost of questions and if they have already been asked.. :) x

But here is the JPEG in case someone can't see that

Hi all! I have gotten the wedding packages for 2015 sent to me and I am really confused! I am unsure of what package to book.. They all seem very similar to me. I am planning for 20 people in November 2015, a symbolic wedding. Also I had read through this forum before and I remember reading a post that to have a poolside reception costs $1600 but when I look at the attachment Linda sent me it states $5 per person per hour for special cocktails and setup/decoration. Is this correct? Then an additional $210/hr for dj? Any insight would help! Thanks in advance :)

Our wedding is all booked...

Would also like to have wedding dinner at the Brazilian

Restaurant (Mixed Grill Place) I think it's by the gazebo? Does anyone know the correct name for this restaurant? Is the new Tulum wedding site far from it? I will also be booking pool side reception for evening with music etc.. If I choose the cheaper option drinks will they be upgraded same as in the day thats been previously mentioned?

. That sounds fabulous! I was at the resort in July and they had a white tent set up outside of the Brazilian restaurant with white linens and chairs and it looked gorgeous! Maybe that is an option for you? I believe the restaurant was called Gran Tortuga. Question for you, did you book your wedding date an package before you booked your trip or after?

Was the tent set up in the day for the ceremony or evening for their reception dinner?

 

We booked the holiday first though the travel agents, we then booked the wedding through the hotel itself because it worked out much cheaper the lowest package was something like £609 but we would have to pay the judge fees and blood tests on top so was working around the same price for the next package up with the hotel cos you don't have to pay judge fees because they are included in package price and the blood test are cheaper? Strange??! Guess thomas cook were making money off the packages. But we had to give our booking dates etc before receiving a date for the wedding :)

I'm getting asked a lot by friends and family who will do my hair and make up? I'm not a big fan of make up very minimal ..

 

But the sound of the reasort salon is putting me off a little..

 

So was wondering if any has or thought of popping into playa del carmen to have their make up done? I was thinking perhaps seeing if I could get it done in MAC or in the department store where they sell perfume/ make up? No need to worry about my hair as my MIL to be is a hairdresser.. X

Hi all! I have gotten the wedding packages for 2015 sent to me and I am really confused! I am unsure of what package to book.. They all seem very similar to me. 

 

This is my interpretation of the packages:

 

Sunshine - your basic package if all you care about is a ceremony, champagne toast and dinner. Basic 10 photo package.

 

Unforgettable - middle of the line, live music, more photos, upgraded champagne for the toast, 15 photos, flowers for the bridal table for the ceremony, candlelit dinner and breakfast in bed.

 

Romance Extravaganza - Going all out. Ceremony, champagne toast, cocktails and canapes, dinner, then two hours of open bar for the reception after dinner. Free mani/pedi and massage. 25 Photo package. Parents also get upgraded. 

 

For us, it made the most sense to go with the middle package and add on a poolside reception. I hate going to the spa and we didn't think it was worth it to pay for a lot of extras that didn't matter to us.

    • 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?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
    • Peach looks nice for 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.
