Hi Jeanna! 

 

I've never been to that specific resort so I'm not much help to you, but I just wanted to say welcome to the forum and I hope you find a lot of fantastic information and resources here!


Best Wishes!

Trisha

Welcome Jeanna. I stayed in playa del carmen, but took the ferry across and zipped around cozumel on a scooter. So much fun. The water will be a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding. This forum is fantastic for info and ideas. Happy planning

Hey Jeanna!  I am headed to Cozumel Palace at the end of June!!  I've never been before, but it seems to have great reviews!  If you'd like pics and a review when I get back, just let me know!

My husband and I were married on May 10th and stayed at Playacar Palace. They immediately upgrade you to basically the concierge level. We received an ocean view room, nightly treats and turndown service all without using your credits to upgrade. A spectacular photo package which is worth over $500 was also included because of the membership. Our photographer Ana and her partner (I feel awful I can't remember his name) were phenomenal! Get the Trash the Dress session and video even if you hate the pricing, they were amazing and so much fun for my husband (and me too!).

 

Although it is sometimes a hassle to deal with the initial planning, once you get there the wedding planners are fabulous (ours was Wilma) and make every dream come true. Lynn helped me deal with any problems we had in the planning stages and was a HUGE help! One of the most memorable moments we had was when I really wanted to have a candlelight dinner on the beach after the ceremony because it was just the two of us. I was really disappointed when at the last minute they told us they did not offer it that night. The staff noticed my disappointment and put together the ultimate candlelight dinner underneath our marriage huppa. They lit the table with purple lights, stones, and flowers. We had three servers waiting table-side to pour our champagne and take dishes. They brought out wonderful filet mignon and lobster and finished with our wedding cake. It was the most amazing dinner ever and I could not believe that they did that for us on such short notice. This dinner is normally done with 10-20 other couples so it was very personal and romantic. I imagine that the service is just as fantastic at Cozumel Palace.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
