Secrets Playa Mujeres - Bride May 5 2015

Recommended Posts

Any of you ladies who have already gotten married here have any information or reviews on the spa there? Like for hair and make-up. I know it's included for the bride, but I'm nervous since I know nothing about it. I also wanted to let my bridesmaids get their hair and make-up done as well but I don't know how expensive that would be.

Hey everyone! @@hcurtis, I'm getting married @ Secrets Playa Mujeres 10/8 this year. We booked Indigo Videographer & Claudia Rodriguez for photography, both of which are outside vendors.  We are actually getting married down on the beach by the Barracuda bar & having "cocktail hour" there..& our reception is going to be on Infinity terrace by the "gazebo". The only thing we are doing different than I saw on many other wedding photos/videos from Secrets is we are using the gazebo as our dance floor, & using long tables rather than small round ones.

 

Claudia from the wedding dept has been great but I agree, they are very much on "vacation" time with their responses, taking up to 1 week to answer!

In regards to hair & makeup, that is what I am struggling with right now, whether or not to use the on-site hair/makeup @ the spa or bring/fly in hair & makeup people from home (NY).  I have info from the resort spa, the prices are Makeup ($75) & Bridal hair-do (I assume updo's, curls, etc) ($85). I do know that for most of the wedding packages they include the makeup and hair for the bride, so that would be comped, however the bridal party would most likely be that price.  I also looked into The Styling Trio, they are an outside company and quite $$$ but their work is impeccable, still not sure what I will go along with.

 

In regards to the wedding packages, we chose the middle package, but Claudia let us know that if we did not want certain items from the package we could swap out for other perks..for example we are receiving complimentary photographs @ wedding, however we have our own photographer, so we are using that photography session for our welcome/rehersal dinner.

 

For our wedding I think we are going to plan on bringing a bunch of items that we will use as decor (votives, table runners, signs, etc), & although the prices are somewhat $$ for rentals I don't want to bring 4 suitcases down from NYC.

 

I'm really looking forward to hear how your wedding plans are coming!! feel free to email me Christina.Ledwith@@gmail.com

Hi Ladies!!,

 

I haven't been able to do much planning but I am going for a site visit 3/3/16 and hope to have most of my questions answered.  If anyone has any questions or pic requests just let me know, more than happy to help.  I can't decide on wedding locations and have been struggling on where to have our reception.

 

A previous bride I was able to reach out to let me know she used MVP hair and makeup for her and her large bridal party. She loved them and they are also review on this site.

Her wedding video is on vimeo, search Secrets playa Mujeres and you'll see them (Dana and Brian)

 

 

My email address is Nicole.rosario7@@gmail.com I would love to share ideas and hear about your wedding planning as well.

Hi Ladies, have any past brides felt the need to hire an external wedding planner to assist the resort wedding coordinator or has the wedding coordinator been able to pull everything off despite not really communicating much until the wedding date gets closer?  I was looking at external vendors for decorations, but I see they can also help with basically the whole planning, setting up and coordinating process.  Not sure if this would be a waste since the resort offers a coordinator but the external planner seems more dedicated to my wedding.  Any thoughts?

OMG ladies....here is the deal. 

I just had the most AMAZING wedding at Secrets Playa Mujeres and I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about it! The resort itself was absolutely spectacular (wonderful service, great food, nice drinks, etc) and all the wedding events were better than I could have ever imagined! Alejandra was phenomenal and made sure every part of the wedding went off without a hitch. 

Please feel free to message me if you want any details or have any questions, I'll try to remember to get on here every once in a while. If I don't answer please feel free to e-mail me at hcurtis105@@gmail.com

 

But moral of the story is...if you are considering a wedding here - DO IT!
