Hi! We were planning a big wedding in our hometown but family & finances just got to be too much to deal with so we cancelled it all & are very excited to be jetting off to Mexico for our joint elopement/honeymoon. We are planning on staying on Isla Mujeres at Privilege Aluxes and were considering having the ceremony there, however their packages seem to be pretty pricey, in my opinion. It would just be the bride & groom along with 4 witnesses and we want the full legal ceremony (doing our own bouquet/boutonniereâ€s & dinner at our resort).  Here's what we want, Iâ€d very much appreciate it if you could give me a price quote and recommend a location(s).

 

-decorated palapa/gazebo on the beach

-little or no outside vendor fees (we have found a photographer we love already)

-officiant/judge with English translation

-legal service with all the required paperwork/bloodwork/legalization in country of origin (USA)

-seating for 4 witnesses

-Champagne & glasses for toasts

 

We are trying to keep to our $1,000 US budget, however our resort seems to be unable to make that happen.

Our resort was able to do a toned-down package for us. Their smallest package was $1750 but it was for 10 people. We were able to negotiate it down to $1400. Just take a look at their lowest package, and send them an e-mail only with the items you need/want and see what type of discount they can give you. It may have helped that I told our coordinator that if we didn't get it below $1500 we would have to start looking elsewhere....

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
