So if you're doing a welcome dinner how much is it per person? I asked Gloria and she said it would be an extra 25 per guest to add a tail. I've been emailing Gloria but no answers of late.. Where did you buy the sashes from? And you're doing a private dinner in the foyer correct? Any chance you would email the private dinner options? my email is juliedps@yahoo.ca

I emailed the menu.

 

The welcome dinner is $25 per person and includes the four course dinner and two hours of private bar. The lobster for our dinner is not a full tail. It's basically lobster meat in a sauce, so it isn't extra.

 

I got the sashes from here:  http://weddinglinensdirect.com/  There are other sites, but they had the best turquoise option for what we are looking for.

 

Yes, I switched the welcome dinner from Garibaldi Square to the Foyer because I was not impressed with the Square. It's in the back of the resort and I felt like we'd feel like we were in a small corner.

@@JenniferH114 Thanks! The menus look great! I think I might go this route as well. Any additional fees I should know about?

So far, I have not heard of any additional fees in regards to the food or menus. Is there something you were thinking?

 

Also, here are the final menus we chose:

 

Welcome Dinner:

***Mixed greens with radicchio, carrot ribbons, hearts of palm, tomato, mandarin and grapefruit segments served with a orange passion fruit dressing

***Cilantro avocado soup with panela cheese

***Pistachio crusted salmon with orange chipotle glaze combined with grilled chicken breast laced with red wine and forest mushroom sauce served with roasted onion tequila confit and lentil saffron rice

***Bitter chocolate coffee and cardamom truffle cake with a hazelnut praline emulsion

 

Wedding Reception Dinner:

*** Fresh romaine lettuce, Parmesan flakes, creamy Caesar dressing served with focaccia croutons

*** Potato, leeks and corn chowder

*** Wild berry sorbet

*** Grilled fillet of beef tenderloin on roasted bell pepper pasilla acuyo sauce combined with chunky lobster simmered in a creamy fennel sauce served with roasted garlic herb mashed potato and grilled vegetables

*** Wedding cake (to be decided)

@@JenniferH114 awesome! 2 more questions ps, did you switch just the entree or the entire courses for your reception? And lastly will you have music in the foyer during your private dinner?

Jessica said we could pick and choose as long as everything was on one of the menus. So we mixed up our options and she confirmed that everything we picked was fine. We actually already had the reception menus printed.

 

I haven't thought about music for the welcome party, actually, but I'm sure we'll try to figure something out. We aren't planning on hiring entertainment or anything, so if we don't have music it's fine. I figure people will be mingling a lot anyways.

I agree with you @@JenniferH114, we just did one entree for everyone as well.  I just put on the invitations the entree was a surf and turf, so let me know if there are any dietary restrictions.  One less thing to worry about.  I think we will just do open seating too.  I like what you are doing for your table!  I still need to figure that out, but want to do the same idea of multiple decor pieces across the long table.  Just hoping Jessica will work with me on the centerpieces offered in the package.

anyone have a budget planning worksheet?  We are going to go with Finest in Playa Mujeres since we can not do excellence we will have our 2 year old with us :) But from what I am hearing Finest will be exactly the same as excellence which is super excited.  We just did site visits last week of a bunch of resorts loved Tulum but to far for our guests I feel bad.  Beloved was also on our top lists.. but a little quiet so Finest seems to be just right.

Now just looking for planning worksheets so I can compare it to one more resort we had on our list we liked Azul Sensatori because of the things they had for kids was really nice.

    • 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
