Hello 27dresses

 

I am also a 2016 bride to be. I have already booked my hotel, which is The Royal Playa  del Carmen. My date date is July 2, 2016. Too early to start booking the hotel, so I have to wait for that. I am in the process of shopping for wedding dresses now. I have started buying little nick nacks for my OOT bags. Things like bubbles, bells, etc.... I plan to have 20 friends and family attend, so I should not be out a bunch. My only other issue I am having is should I hire a DJ. most likely I will not,  I plan to spend majority on pics. 

 

Im getting married at the Royal Playa del Carmen March 11, 2016.

 

I feel like I should be doing more! So far I have put my $200 deposit down and selected my package. It seems too easy, so I get a bit nervous. I dont plan to make another payment until June 2015. 

 

There are so many add on to consider for the wedding ceremony, and they all seem great! Have you really started looking at photographers? I start looking, but I dont want a company that sends someone out. I want the portfolio I see to be of the person who will be onsite the day of my wedding.

Feb. 6 2916 bride here!! I will be getting married at moon palace. I sent out save the dates in Jan and have my room block, wedding/cocktail/reception locations secured as well as my photographer deposit paid and wedding dress bought! I am so thankful for you ladies- without this resource I would be so much more stressed! My next steps are to pick flowers and make a diy schedule... I plan to try to slowly knock them out so things aren't stressful at the end. I am so excited!

I am using Ivan luckie. He is local and very reasonable for prices- I am getting a full wedding day and underwater TTD for less then other photographers were charging for just a short wedding shoot! I love his documentary style as well- you should check him out :)

    Hi @27dress 
    Congratulations on your engagement!!

    I'm sure this forum will provide lots of information regarding wedding venue locations, details, etc...

    Planning a wedding ahead of time is a great option. When working with a planner or coordinator this timeperiod can sometimes be shortened,

     

    With us for instance since we take care of all of the wedding event: flowers, food, entertainment, etc. the planning only takes 3 months :)  If you'd like to you can visit our website www.adventureweddingsvallarta.com and check out our wedding packages. We do ceremonies on a secluted beach wich is a very romantic setup and a wonderful experience for guests.

     

    Best regards,

    veil

        ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm new to BDW as well.

        My fiancรฉe and I have just began narrowing down our choices for cities/wedding dates. Our travel agent has been helpful in doing so. We are currently leaning toward Jamaica in September-November 2016.

        We have a beautiful six month old daughter and are looking forward to getting our family and friends together to finally tie the knot! (we put our plans on hold due to our serendipitous bundle of joy!)

        Congratulations + all the best to you!

        Hi all,

        We are planning a March 2016 Wedding and looking at the Grand Riviera Princess for our resort. I am trying to sort out some details before I hit the TA for some pricing and info. Eeek this is stressful lol.
