I looked into this hotel too and only ruled it out because the pricing was just too high for my week from Vancouver. here is the info I got from the wedding coordinator, hopefully some of it pertains to your questions! Please find the WC's comments in blue

 

Hi Lupita!
Thank you so much for the response, and I LOVE the way you answer my questions like that. Definitely helps! Thank you is all my pleasure! :0)
Okay definitely leaning towards the Turquoise Breeze option. Is the beach ceremony location super public? Yes, but I am there and I am always telling people no to approach to the wedding and do not stop informt of the ceremony

I would be interested in having ceremony somewhere between 4 and 5pm, so I'm sure that makes a difference for having tons of "watchers" :) Yes but they will be watching a little bite far
Is there an option to pay extra for an actual dance floor on the beach? We have a palapa that has a wood floor and you can use it as a dance floor and is on the beach

Or is there another location in the resort where the private dinner and reception complete with open bar and DJ can be held?  (Preferrably not somewhere that's completely indoors, I like the idea of open air) I just have the ball room and it is complitely close
We are having a symbolic ceremony, so I would like to have it on the 2nd or 3rd day (not including arrival day) Please let me know the date and I will suggest that you do on the 3rd day but at the end this will be your desition
Anyway I think that's all for now!
Thank you very much - I am currently working with my travel agent on pricing.
If you would like to move to the next step please find enclosed the wedding contract, fill it and scan for me in order to confirm the wedding date. I do not require a deposit or credit card information, only your hotel booking number.

Dear Nikki,
 
 
Greetings form Sandos Playacar... first of all congratulations! It will be my great pleasure to assist you with this very special occasion. Rest assured that we will make this moment one to remember!
 
Enclosed please find the wedding collections Turquoise Breeze, Serenity Blue & Hidden Paradise with all the information, please let me know your choice and if you would like to move to the next step. These collections will apply until July 2014, if you reserve your wedding before the end of July 2014, we will respect the prices of 2013. In order to have the ceremony on the beach a 150usd federal tax will apply.
 
We have ceremonies anytime during the day; the last one is at 5:30pm. If you will have a legal wedding you have to arrive at least 3 working days prior the ceremony. We can perform weddings from Monday to Saturday.
Please see my comments next to yours:

Is the private dinner on the beach for 3 hours, and the DJ for 3 hours the same event? Correct
And is there a dance floor available or is just the sand? It is on the sand we don't count with dance floor

Does the private dinner include open bar? Yes, National open Bar
And lastly, what would be the price for the DJ and open bar to be extended to 4 hours? Open bar 18usd per person and DJ 80usd per hour
And for the Serenity Blue package -
Do you have a photo of the ceremony set up in the gazebo? Please follow tha link:

This is great info! Thanks for sharing!  I'm about 95% decided I'm going with Grand Coral Beach Club through Joyce of Dream Weddings. We're going to be a really small group and I'm just finding that the resorts almost penalize you if you're a small group. We're not going to rent a dance floor for 6 to 10 people, or pay for a Chill Grill (??) or rent a ballroom. If we don't make absolutely 10 we can't have cocktails. Plus I just don't want a beach full of people. We can do Grand Coral for our ceremony and cocktails, then go right into PDC for a small dinner reception in a private area. We won't be under the gun to get out after a certain time and pay through the nose if we don't. If you're a large group it makes it worthwhile to pay for the extra time. When you're only 6 or 8 people there are too many things that make it hard to justify the cost.

 

 

My hardest part was a resort. I want to be close to PDC, and we have friends that are supposed to be going that are very high maintenance and need to be occupied all the time so I figured if we were really close to PDC they could do a few things on their own. I'm in love with 2 other resorts - one has almost no beach that really makes me nervous. The resort gets RAVE reviews but the beach sucks. The other is great but the beach is rocky (from reviews) and it's just a little further from PDC than I want to be. Of course there are others but the price points are just out of reach and I wouldn't ask guests to pay that much when it's not our wedding.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
