@@dwbride2014 If you're looking for a little more wedding day inspiration take a peek at one of our recent Playacar Palace beach weddings we captured. Our bride had such an incredible eye for detail and really personalized her ceremony and reception :)

 

Full wedding at Playacar Palace can be seen here!

Hola Playacar Palace brides! Congrats on your upcoming weddings!    :) This post is for any brides interested in affordable decor for your big day.

 

I'm a newlywed from Vancouver, Canada that lives down here in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I have quite a few decor items leftover from our wedding in May, mostly in a rustic vintage style. I've decided to rent things out to brides that don't want to lug things like vases & mason jars down here to Mexico, and have priced things quite fairly compared to the resorts' prices. 

 

I have a lots of different types of bottles, mason jars, vases and lanterns, as well as a variety of other items like wooden signs & frames, table runners, rustic birdcages, string lighting, paper lanterns and even a portable sound system.

 

If you want a Style Me Pretty or Ruffled type of wedding in Mexico without a huge price tag, I'm your gal! So far no one has had to pay an outside vendor fee at all, as they tell their WC that they have brought the decor themselves. I'm also always interested in buying items that brides bring down and would like to sell after their weddings, please send me photos of anything you'd like to sell!

If you'd like to see some photos and a price list, please send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you all the info. Also if anyone has any questions about the area, ask away! I've lived in Playa Del Carmen for two years and know the whole coast quite well. Happy planning ladies!

 

Here's a couple of photos of some items we used in our wedding and that are for rent, but I have lots more available. You can click on the photos to view the larger versions:

Hi there, I am getting married at Playacar Palace November, 6, 2014!!! Yippee.. I would love to see what items you have available, with quotes. The style is similar to what I was planning for my wedding, however would save me from having to lug everything from Calgary Canada :)

 

Thank you

Hi playabride1!

 

I am also getting married at PP in May- May 2nd.. when are you????

hey!

 

I'm May 20th and so far have done no other planning besides picked the locations.... I'm starting to feel out! Haha

 

We had a site visit with Karla in jan and decided the menu, and found out to our surprise that the location we wanted (the north beach) had already been given away for a rehearsal dinner... jOYOUS!

 

How's your planning going? I hope better than ours :)

Hi Playacar Palace Brides!

 

I just got back from my wedding at Beach Palace! Most of the wedding information is the same across all palace resorts (spa services & prices, private function menus etc), so please let me know if you have any questions!

 

Sneak peek to my photo gallery! Enjoy!

Hi ladies!! 

 

I am getting married on June 28 at 6:00pm, coming up quick now! I'm starting to pick all my services and locations with my wedding coordinator and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the in house photography Ocean Studios? I am so confused by their brochure and my wedding coordinator and the contact for the photography studio both have not answered my questions completely! Their brochure says that photos are included during ceremony and 3 hours after at cocktail/reception, does anyone know if this includes time inn between ceremony and cocktail for pictures on the beach with bride & groom, wedding party pictures, etc? I really don't need three hours of my reception photographed but I want to make sure I get pictures of us and my bridal party! Just wondering if anyone has any insight or feedback. Pictures are one of the most important thing to me and I am very nervous about this company, really wish there wasn't a $800 charge for outside photographer :(. HELP!

Hi Shelly!

 

I am getting married 6.14.2014 at Playacar! :D I decided not to use their photographer, the prices were just too high for what they're willing to provide. I researched all of this way back in Sept, so i cant really remember all the specifics other than you dont get much time, few prints, they dont edit the photos (if they do on a couple) etc. I ultimately decided it would cost  just as much to use as Ocean as me bringing my preferred photog with me to the wedding and paying for their stay (as a guest so no vendor fee).

 

Congrats!

 

Rachel

Really i just remember the value wasnt there for what they wanted to charge.

Hi Lindsey!

 

Love the photos. I was just curious if you used the decor from the rental company or brought any of your own? Did you use a local florist or the resorts?

 

Thanks!

Hi Rachel!

Thank you!

We used an outside vendor for both flowers and rentals. I brought a lot of decor from home but our florist and rental company bought all of it! So it is available to you through them :)

Florist- Vanessa Jaimes- she was incredible!

Rental Company- Planner1- worked with Arianna- amazing!!

 

I can not say enough great things about both ladies & companies. There were both so great and perfectly executed our vision!

Arianna and Vanessa had worked together on several weddings before, and worked together beautifully!

 

Please let me know if you would like either of their contact info!

:D

Hi Lindsey!

 

I am planning on bringing some things from home and curious..did you just pack everything in suitcases? I've seen that some people have packed plastic totes that the airlines were willing to transfer.

 

If you could send me the contact info for both ladies, that would be great! My email is rachelholmes21@@gmail.com

 

Thanks!

Hi Ladies,

 

I've posted on here before but am at a stopping point when it comes to photographer and dj.  the only photographer attending my wedding is my maid of honor so I can't have her do it.  I'm thinking I will need to go local.  Any suggestions?  Also wondering what buffet choices anyone that has been there before had and what they liked and didn't like about them.  I am considering having my reception on the "deck" on the beach.  Anyone have any words of wisdom regarding that?  Thanks so much!

    • 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.
