Hello All,

Today I officially booked my date for June 17, 2016 at Playacar Palace. I know it's far out but I'm a planner. I chose the complimentary ceremony package and am planning on bringing ivory organza chair sashes for the ceremony. I am a very crafty person and a real DIYer. I am working on bridesmaid boxes and I'll post pics when I'm done. I plan to purchase items for the big week little by little on sale with coupons. I have a 6:00 ceremony scheduled but I feel we probably should do 5:00. Any tips, suggestions, words of advice, or general conversation would be greatly appreciated.

So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.

Wow - they actually let you book that far out? I'm getting worried about booking my off site now. Think I'll check with the planner again......


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011 yes they did surprisingly. I'm glad though as it gives plenty of time for our friends and family to pay, save, and plan for work. Now, I'm just hoping it all works out or I will have to choose another location completely.

What could cause you to choose another location completely? You have your date booked at a resort you like! That's a great thing! I'm February 2016 and our flight/resort block is active and my date and locations for ceremony and reception are reserved! Nothing better than planning ahead!

Wow you guys are way ahead. We are playing on a February or March 2016 Wedding, I just can't seem to find a location that I want to go with. Any suggestions on how you decided on those hotels? I, too, am looking to do the complimentary package of whatever hotel I choose.

You want to work with a TA that specializes in destination weddings and decide what's truly important for you in a resort and ask them for suggestions on locations that for your needs. There is a lot of options so make sure you know your "must haves" and work from there. For us Karisma properties were a no brainer because of their gourmet inclusive concept... Then we narrowed it down within their properties and finally did a site visit to be sure we chose the one that suited us best!

WOW congrats on choosing and great planning ahead!

I'm getting worried because I'm hoping for Aug 1 2015 but haven't booked it yet! I need to get on that.

I keep second guessing myself on resorts. I think I'm committed to Palace but can't decide now between Moon/Beach/Playacar!

    Yes I love Playa del Carmen. Only downfall is Playacar has a 4 night minimum. So I'm starting to consider beach palace. Moon palace is very nice as well but we are in our 20s so being so isolated isn't what we're looking for

    I decided on Palace because they seemed to have the most to offer for what I was looking for. I love RIU Resorts but my friends vacation there on a regular so I wanted the place for our wedding to be special

    I'm in Canada and most of our packages are for one week so that's fine with me!

    The only thing that concerns me at Playacar is that it's a small resort and could get booked up before all my guests book... and I've heard the beach has a lot of randoms on it during the wedding ceremonies!
