Hey! I'm having between 65-85 guests. I'm having my dinner at the Plantation and they offer an "included" menu, which is no extra charge per guest. But you do need to pay $250 per hour to have dinner there.

Lizz, what about people that are not staying at the resort but are attending the wedding and are purchasing a $50 day pass. If I went with a different menu where you have to pay per person, would their plate already be covered by the $50 entry fee, or would I have to pay separate for them?

 

What is in the included dinner option. I thought that I saw it on here before, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks!!!

Here is the included menu. To be honest, it doesn't really look all that different from the menus that cost $25-35 per person. I have no idea how they work out what guests pay if they have day passes, you should definitely check with Chandlyn on that.

Tuna salad, beef salad, beef salpicon, squid salad

I'm getting married May 9 @ 4pm. While I live in VA now I'm originally from CA and most of my family will be flying out of LA so some of our guest may be on the same flights. Sounds like you are a lot further in the planning phase than I am and you have some great ideas. I'll have to chat with you when I finally get my but in gear.

I am pretty sure you need to pay additional for every person eating for the upgraded menu even though they paid $50.00 for a day pass. The menu that is included is pretty good for free. I looked at paying extra per person for an upgraded menu and for open bar but I have 65 guests booked so far, We can't afford to pay for upgrades. There is also dancing available in the plantation if you were looking for another option instead of renting the disco.

Well, so far I have 32 people booked but I think I will have at least 50. The menu included in renting out the plantation sounds pretty good - I'm going with that. If you want open bar you do need to pay an extra $10/person - FYI. The menu only includes wine and pop.

I have 65+ people and I'm using the included menu and paying $10 per person for open bar. But I noticed on the menu that Chandlyn sent me, that drinks included wine AND beer. Does anyone know for sure if this is correct? I am going to pay the extra, but if your guests aren't big on mixed drinks, that could save you some money.

    • 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
