My Name is Ursula,and I am a newbie... I just recently got engaged to my prince charming Yippeee so excited, but my Fiance and I have decided to have a long engagement to give me time to finish school, and also to save up money. We fixed a date for May 2014. Now all I am doing is loads of research. We are so confused as to where we want to have our wedding. I have been looking at weddings in Mexico and they look really beautiful. I have loads of questions, so please any one with suggestions, pictures and ideas, feel free to comment, it would do a lot of good....
We are having a hard time trying to figure out where is easily accessible, I mean ticket wise. Where is cheaper to go as far as anywhere in the caribbean. I have seen a couple of weddings at the Xcaret Eco Park in Mexico, and they are so beautiful. Now my question on the Xcaret is, is there a beach on the property, because I have always envisioned my self in a beach setting for the ceremony. Now for the reception, I would like it indoors, with the lights, dance floor, etc. I see the Xcaret has something like that for the reception, but how much is it to rent? and having between 50-70 guests, would the restaurant look too big for the amount of guests I have? or would there be any place similar that could accommodate and give off course the intimate feel? I was also looking at El Taj condos to stay with my guests, is that a good Idea? and is the beach at El Taj private? or would there be somewhere I could have an intimate wedding ceremony? And also if I have my wedding ceremony at a location other than the Xcaret, and have my reception at the Xcaret, would there be ample time for pictures at both locations before the reception? When do you think is appropriate to start contacting vendors? and suggestions for vendors would be awesome too, DJ, Florist, Makeup, etc.. Any recommendations would be of so much help. The only thing that I know as far as vendors go, is Del Sol Photography, that's for sure. Anything else, I am a big mess. So please Help and I would be looking forward to hearing from all.
Thanks In Advance
