    Hi all,

     

    My fiance and I have booked Sandos Playacar.  I have seen a few threads however they are pretty old.  I am looking for new info and reviews on the Resort.  We are having out wedding on May 28, 2014 at 4:00PM.  Is that a good time?  Also looking for info regarding dinner on the beach vs. in a restaurant.  Also cocktail hour and more.  At this point any info is greatly appreciated.

      Hi Bride2B2,

      First, big congrats on the upcoming wedding and on choosing a destination! May is a good weather month in Playa del Carmen and it's nice to have the longer days of daylight savings time. It is a busy time in Playa too, so you may want to take that into consideration. Starting the ceremony a little later in the day (5:30) may help you avoid too many people around AND allow you to get some nice sunset shots. We shot a pretty wedding there with Bev and Jordan and they chose the gazebo over the beach and it was nice to have a little added intimacy/privacy. The hotel should offer a champagne toast after the ceremony for your guests. Most all inclusives (like Sandos) have the receptions in the restaurant, though for a fee you could have them do a beach set up. I would also recommend setting a seating time of around 7:00 after a 5:30 ceremony to keep things moving along and active.

          HI there, I am getting married on Jan 17, 2014. We have chosen the Italian buffet for dinner. I really wanted it to be private but the cost was too high for my 42 quests. We are though doing a private reception on the beach. How about you?

                Hi Playacar brides! Do you mind sharing a breakdown of the wedding cost? We're plannning to get married March/April 2015 and have no clue of how expensive is a destination wedding. ***Debirina, how expensive is your wedding going to be for 42 guests? Thank you!!! I'm just dont know where to start!

                @DianaSRZ I think the travel time from the airport is 45minutes. at least thats what i've read.

                 

                Im planning my wedding for January 2015, and so far SAndos playacar is my favourite option. Anyone have details or pictures  reception locations? Im planning on going with the package that includes the 3hour private dinner reception with DJ.

                Any reviews or details would be helpful!  THanks!

                HI @Bride2B2014, i am actually starting to plan my wedding for January 2015, and Sandos Playacar is 1st on my list. How is your wedding planning going?

                Im thiking about getting the package with the 3hr private dinner & DJ reception.

                Curious about the reception locations?  

                Has the wedding planner sent you over any details about that?
