We are getting married on August 17...little more than 3 weeks away at the Hard Rock Cancun.  I'll make sure to post pics/reviews when we get back. 
Awesome! I am so excited for you! Can't wait to see the photos and hear all about your experience! Be sure to come back and update us!!! :)

I think we are going to end up doing something a little different for our cocktail hour/reception.

It is only our close family who is making the trek to Mexico for the wedding (about 16) so we have decided to not have a traditional reception.  We have instead extended our cocktail hour to two hours and completely eliminated our reception.  I thought it might be a little odd to have only 2 round tables of 8 in a large space plus pay for all the decor/set up in another location.  Our ceremony is on the beach as well as our cocktail hours.  We have decided to get a bali bed and some other lounge furniture as well as the high bar tables.  I've spoken to Christina (my coordinator) and it's totally fine to do this.  We will have more (double) h'orderves served than a normal one hour cocktail hour and will do our first dance, father daughter dance, kind words from those who want to say a little something all on the beach during the cocktail hours.  We then will all go for dinner at either Ciao(Italian) or Zen(Asian) restaurants. 

What is everyone else planning to do?

That is such a great idea!  I wish I would have thought of that.  We are having the ceremony on the beach at 6pm.  Then, pictures are to follow immediately afterwards.  At 7:30, I have a 2 hour dinner planned on the Infinity Terrace for 26 people.  We will have 4 tables set up and we will serve the Mediterranean Buffet.  After dinner we will do the champagne toasts and cake.  Then we will just go to the hotel's "discotheque" for the rest of the night.  I tried to do things as simple as possible and not waste money.

Oh, that sounds wonderful too!  I was also looking for ways to cut costs down a bit and these seems to be a nice solution. 

 

I am curious when your wedding is?  They told me that during certain months 6pm was not an option, the latest ceremony time is 4pm in February so that is what we went with.

 

Also – I found out from Christina that real candles are allowed but apparently never go over well because they just get blown out (especially by the beach) so if you plan to do a candle lit effect you should take the LED ones. 

 

I know alot of us have been wanting to see photos of a wedding at the Hard Rock Cancun so when scouring the internet I came across these!

Hello Hard Rock brides! Thanks Curlygirlinpearl for sharing our links, so kind of you! The original poster of this thread GadyInc was such a terrific bride and we thank her for sharing this Del Sol Photography Review here on BDWF!~ Here are just a few shots from her pretty day. The timing of weddings in Cancun is important as you do lose the light at different hours during different seasons, definitely listen to the coordinators advice on this!

So I just saw this! Yes we did choose HRC. May 3, 2014! We chose 4pm. We wanted 6pm but the coordinator and our travel agent said it would get dark really fast and may not be best for pictures. We aren't sure if we will do a first look so we decided to do 4pm

Did you end up choosing Hard Rock Hotel Cancun?  I wish there were more photos and brides who have shared their experience on here so we can get an idea of what to expect! [/quote

Our wedding is in two weeks...August 17th.  Maybe in the summer they allow later times.  I wanted to do it as late in the day as possible so that we wouldn't all burn up from the heat.  :)
