I am having a Sikh wedding at the Moon Palace in June 2014. I hired a wedding planner here (Vancouver) who is arranging everything for my wedding and with the wedding coordinator at MP. As for the baba, he brings 2 other people with him to perform the Kirtan and the wedding as well as the Guru Granth Sahib and anything else needed but you have to provide the gifts you would normally give to a gurdwaras for a wedding. I am still finding out if they provide ramaals. You generally pay a package price and it includes 3 people's flights and accommodations for 1 night only. They perform so many destination weddings now so you should try to book it ASAP. My wedding planner had a hard time getting ahold of him but always ask to speak directly to him and then they will email you a contract you must sign and give a deposit. If anyone is looking for a mehndi person I have the Henna Lounge is the best. They have a website and provide all the details on there. I'm still waiting to find out who the MP provides as they have an "Indian wedding package" now that includes that. When I was looking for what resort to book, it seemed as if MP was the most accommodating for how many functions Sikh weddings have. I get unlimited private functions with no extra cost and they will set everything up everyday. The only extra money we have to pay is per table for the reception but then we are also getting a $2500 credit to use for our reception in which we only pay taxes. If anyone needs any help feel free to message me. I have been intensely planning every single thing. My wedding is going to be 80-100 people!

Here are some Sikh weddings videos we shot in the Riviera Maya. We worked with L'Escape wedding planners and the SikhCenter from Mexico City (www.sikhcentermexico.org - email arjanmx@yahoo.es)

Hi Ladies!

 

My wedding is in about 5 weeks at the Moon Palace as well. We booked Blue Petal Destination Weddings in Vancouver to help us with the preparations. The company was perfect for our needs, because they assigned us to a travel agent who got us a great rate and took care of all the bookings (over 160 people!!) and they also assigned us to a wedding planner who has been communicating with the MP resort planner to arrange all the details for us. In terms of the baba ji, I heard the Mexico City people were really reliable etc and know a few people who have booked them, but when we tried to book them we couldn't get a hold of them (I think they went to India or something). We ended up booking someone we know from Vancouver, and are flying down the Granthi, Kirtan person and tabla player. The trio will be bringing all their own supplies and also offered to bring the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, but we decided to borrow the SGGS from the Mexico people instead (They keep it in Cancun at some yoga center). As for ramaals, etc, - I am taking my own for all the men.

 

Just like one of the other brides above, I am also getting the daily free events (free food, drinks, tables, chairs, napkins cutlery) - basically the resort agreed to do a private event for us each day, for a max of 3 hours. I think they give this to anyone who has a combined booking for 75 room nights or something like that. The free events are great but dont include any decor, music, etc so we have to rent all that - and their rental rates are very expensive, and so are things like flowers, henna, etc. The resort credits are definitely helpful though so that part is good :)

 

Hope that helps!

Hi Ladies,

 

I was wondering if any of you are doing your Doli in Mexico, and how are you doing it? Are you booking any special area for it, or just doing it in one of the rooms?

Hello Ladies!

 

First of all, congrats to all of you on your big days!! I know how exciting it can all be, I had a Sikh and Hindu destination wedding myself a few years ago in Mexico. During my experience I learnt a lot with regards to resorts, vendors, costs, etc and have become a destination wedding specialist!

 

There are a lot of wedding planners out there and are all very helpful. I am Canadian and I specialise in destination weddings to get you all the information you are searching for, that seems nearly impossible to find and most importantly get you the BEST RATES/DEALS.

 

I charge a very low fee for my services (weddings can already be so costly!) but I still provide the FULL wedding planner experience starting from travel arrangements right down to your invitations, vendors and making sure your day goes perfectly.

 

It's truly a passion of mine and I would love to help other brides have an extravagant wedding while at the same time cutting some major costs. 

 

Please contact me at IndianBeachDreams@gmail.com if you have any questions

 

XOXO

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
