Then a few minutes later I got a second email saying we could do a garden location, but that it would cost $350 plus 11% tax (mandatory) for lighting.

 

I guess we'll just stay in Castaways for now, despite my fears of the heat and the layout. I thought I had seen a photo someone posted of a Castaways floor plan, but of course now I can't find it saved anywhere on my hard drive.

 

Having been to the Riviera Maya in February, June, and September, I can tell you with absolute certainty that June and September are HOTTTTT and humid.  I love the heat, but it was really hot.  February was wonderful temperature and I am sure December will be the same.  I am getting married in November and the temperature can fluctuate from 22-28 degrees Celsius from what I understand.

I will definitely keep your comments in mind!

    Are you strictly looking at AI options in Playa?  If not I have a few recommendations.  Including my wedding, I have been to the area 4 times and know it pretty well... Let me know and maybe provide an approximate price point per night

      Knowing my family (and his) they will definitely want an AI.  :( This would be a LOT simpler if they didn't!

          Has or is anyone brought paper lanterns to tie to the ceiling (I believe there is a large light fixture) of the bamboo room for your reception?  If so, can you tell me how many you brought/are bringing for that?  20, 30?  And were they different sizes? Just trying to figure out what would look best in that room for additional decor. Thanks!!

              I have the same question, but about Castaways!

              I have the same question, but about Castaways!

              I honestly would not even worry about bringing the paper lanterns as decor, I don't think it's needed in either location... Everything is beautiful just the way it is... This is one thing that was on my list since day 1 but time got away from me & I never got them, I'm happy I didn't waste the money or luggage space! (Just my opinion)

              62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

                Hey guys, its been ages since my last post, as now I seem to have gotten over my initial excitement of getting confirmation!!!!

                 

                I have a question and I hope someone can help...

                 

                Ive got several outside vendors planned/booked for our wedding....

                We are having Sweetfire photography (2 people)..... Cancun Wedding Video (not sure how many people, probs 2).... and Luka Makeup Studio (for both hair and makeup- I think 2 people again)

                 

                Will pilar charge me for all these people to come onto the resort???

                 

                Gosh the price seems to be getting more and more by the day, I am hoping that she will waiver the outside vendor free.

                 

                Kelly

                  I was going to bring my own lanterns but it just didn`t happen prior to leaving for Mexico.  I had told Pilar I was bringing them so she asked for them to set up, I told her not to worry about it since it wasn`t a priority but Pilar was able to get some and surprised me by adding them to the Bamboo Room for us.  You can see from this picture we had about 9-10 and it looked great! They were in 2 or 3 different sizes but I`m not sure what the dimensions were.  The room is beautiful so it will look great with or with out lanterns tho :)
