El Taj Bride? Or Non-Inclusive Venues?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

Just about to start reaching out to venues in the Playa Del Carmen to start planning our October wedding.  My fiance Chris and I are excited to plan and know we have a lot of work to do.  He works in the hotel/hospitality industry, and I am an event planner, so we have a lot of experience but it's definitely different planning your own!  Plus we are not planning on doing a site, so we are rolling the dice a little and hoping for the best.  

 

Anyone else looking at El Taj,or have any experience with their staff and vendors?  We love this boutique hotel and are hoping that this might be *the one*!

 

Are there other recommendations for a non-inclusive hotel that is on the beach?  For both room blocks and as a reception venue.  We want to be on the beach, and would love to be able to do everything on site, and avoid the all-inclusive resorts.  

 

Congratulations to all the engaged couples out there, and to those who have tied the knot! :)

 

Cheers!

You can look into Le Reve. They are a boutique hotel on the beach and would be an excellent venue for a wedding. I just got back from my stay there and have to say I was very happy with this hotel. The service and food were excellent and the place is gorgeous!! You can rent out the whole hotel too for total privacy.

Hey TheDivineMissC,

 

Congrats on your engagement and choosing for a choosing Destination Wedding.

 

As Wedding planner here in Playa Del Carmen and I must point out the El taj is a family friendly place and this beautiful location offers an excellent service and food. The beach area is called Indigo Beach club pretty busy area because is in the center, if you do not mind having tourist passing through during your ceremony then for sure you will be perfectly fine in having both the ceremony and reception there.

As you may know they have the restaurant right on the beach and they are pretty flexible, you are allowed to bring in any vendor you prefer.. Usually when you are having a reception there, you are allowed to use their furniture including lounges, white linen and some of their illumination.

 

They have a wide range of  menus to select from.

 

If you are interested in having more information please feel free to PM or email me at weddingsinplayadelcarmen@gmail.com

 

Happy Planning!

Joyce

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
