    Just paying it forward. A lot of my confidence in the resort was from all the reviews from past brides.

    What are your details? Palapa? Colors? Extras? Yay!!!! So exciting

      We are doing the beach ceremony with apps and champagne after. We are then taking all of guests on a private 3hr sunset catamaran cruise instead of doing a reception at the hotel. I am soooo excited! Our color is coral...the bridesmaids are wearing these wrap dresses that I found on Etsy so I am excited to see what they look like!

      Omg that's freaking awesome. I considered this at one point but husband said his mom is too scared of boats. Can't wait to see pictures :). Coral is a great color. That's awesome!!! The public beach is still a bit removed from regular beach so you'll appreciate that too :)

        Sweet! I was wondering about that...where abouts is the public beach? Were there a lot of people around there? Did you see a wedding happen there?

        It's off the main beach towards the spa. It's on the other side of the ruin if you've seen pics. People are over there but since there are no loungers I didn't find it bad. I'll see if I can find a pic.

          @meganstobo2004 Ok hopefully these help! In the first picture you can see the main beach and in the next one it wraps around towards the ruin.

          At the ruin there is a lot of 'reef' there so you can't really get thru unless you walk thru 'brush' On the far side of that ruin, in the picture, is where the public beach weddings are ...as you can tell there is no loungers, etc. over there but there was some people there when we walked thru.

           

          If by chance they offer you playa palapa for your ceremony, that is the private beach by the disco where the palapa is.

          If they allow it I would jump on it, but unsure if they would charge you the golf cart services to shuttle the guests as it is a long walk.

           

          ps - the beach wasn't as bad as it looks in this pic. Some areas were rockier than others. I didn't have any issues myself with going into the ocean, but as I walked towards where I took this first pic I wanted my flip flops on.

            We are already getting the golf cart because of my grandparent so we are already paying for that.
