    My date is reserved, October 5th 2013! 

     

    I am having my catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Guadalupe chapel and my reception in La Isla in Xcaret. Are there any other brides out there that are considering having their wedding in Xcaret?!?

     

    If so, please post here to share ideas/answer questions/give recommendations. I look forward to your responses!

        Xcaret? just one of the most great place for a wedding in the Riviera Maya.

         

        After shooting weddings there, I can give you some ideas about the location:

          YaY a 2013 Bride. I've reserved the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel at Xcaret for November 11, 2013! Congrats on booking La Isla, it's so beautiful. Unfortunately I don't think we'll have the minimum number of guests to fill that space, so we're going to have our reception at whatever resort we book.

            My date was actually changed to Nov 9, 2013 so we will be getting married just two days before you two! Exciting! Happy Planning!

              AHH!! Our wedding is on October 19, 2013... We are having the ceremony at St Francis of Assisi Chapel and our reception at La Isla restaurant. We are so so so super excited! I am letting our venue speak for itself, and not going overboard getting fancy chairs, or fancy centerpieces. We have settled on the DJ Xcaret and the Ancient Dancers to perform. We are staying in Playa del Carmen at the Gran Porto Real, and we can't wait to go ! We have hired a wedding planner... Patricia from Weddings in Cancun, and she's so helpful and never makes me feel like I'm bothering her. I am super confident that she will deliver what it is we are looking for. If you ladies have any suggestions, I would love to hear some too! :) Jill

                jbascetta209 just a few weeks before us! How exciting! I am also working with Patricia. She's been so helpful! Have you been quoted prices at Gran Porto Real? I was also thinking of staying there because it's kid friendly and so close to 5th Ave. I am also skipping the fancy chairs and centerpieces. This place is amazing! Have you taken a trip out there or are you planning to before the wedding? When do you plan on sending save the dates? I am taking engagement pictures on Sept. 30th so we will probably be sending our out by the year mark or right before it. I apologize for all the questions, I am just so excited to have found other brides that will be tying the knot right before us!

                  We have gotten rates... they do not include airfare (coming from Connecticut/NY), but they seem to be pretty decent. We have a son who will be 3 and a half at the time of the wedding, so that is the reason we are choosing the Gran Porto. My husband and I were in a wedding at the Royal in Cancun this past November, and that is in the same resort group as the Gran Porto, so we are confident it will be great. I know it is not as luxurious at the Royal in Cancun or in Playa del Carmen, but we will have our whole family there, and don't need to be too fancy to have fun :) We were quoted $408 for a three night stay per person, all-inclusive, and $104 per person for any extra nights. This price also includes transportation to and from the airport. That is for the regular room, the Junior OceanView Suite... We wanted to stay in the Master Suite (which isn't too much more expensive) so we can have all the girls getting ready in the room the day of.

                  We plan on sending our Save the Dates out at least a year in advance. I have seen some great MExican inspired ones on Etsy at the store named, "calaverapress1". Also, I saw this idea and I think it would be suppper cute... you can have personalized mini maracas painted, with a tag attached which states to "Shake at the Kiss". I thought the idea was great and kinda unique.

                   

                  Where are you from originally?

                    Hi girls! Congrats again. I was hoping to send my save the dates a year in advance as well but not too sure...looks like we won't be taking our E-pics until early November...

                      Hey everyone! I came across this forum, and unfortunately, I don't know how to just post a link here, but the title is, "How Does A Real Xcaret Wedding Looks Like"...

                      I know the English is a little off :), but this is the first I've seen of actual Brides and Grooms putting their own touches on an Xcaret wedding. It's been super helpful to me to see the decor of the reception area and the ceremony site... but it's also put doubt in my head on where we would want to have the ceremony in the first place! The pictures of the Chapel Guadalupe are spectacular!

                       

                      Just copy & paste the title into the search bar on the site, and it should bring you right to it!

                       

                      Enjoy!!
