Hi Ladies!

 

I just stumbled on to this group! Would have been great to find earlier in my wedding planning. 2016 is just around the corner and I was super lost when I started my planning. My wedding is March 2016 at The Royal Playa del Carmen in Playa del Carmen. I wanted to share a little of my planning story, and maybe it will help you.

 

I choose a package, and quickly realized DW cost way more then the initial package, if you resort offers ad-ons like mine. Photography, DJ, Flowers, Wedding Dress, Grooms Suite, Invites, Bands, Travel, Welcomes Bags, Extra hours, etc .

 

After I reached out to a resort wedding specialist I told them exactly what package I wanted ( I already did research) and choose a date. I found the flight and date I wanted to travel, the lowest possible rate at the time, and asked for a price match.

 

Invites didn't costs me tons. I used a promo code ( which are out there for just about everything) and order them on Zazzle, which is completely customizable. You can change, font, color, etc.  I sent them out about a year before the wedding. I wanted to give everyone enough time to secure a payment plan with the travel agent and decide if they can make it.

 

We are doing a ceremony, cocktail hour and full reception on the beach. I anticipate about 40 people.

 

Other then my dress ( which I scored on a 4th of July sale on accident at Alfred Angelo) Photography is the only other cost I can really control ( there are two DJ options at the resort I'm at, and they have a fixed price).

 

There are so many DW photographers! I looked for price and quality. I didn't want to get cruddy pictures of my big day, but also didn't want the cost to be as much as my wedding. I also wanted photography and videography. I googled playa del Carmen videography and photography and found a few options. I ultimately went with Octavio Montes www.octaviomontes.com His company does both, so I know they can work together. He is local and has done wedding at the resort, so we don't need to waste time scouting, and his works looks great at a price point Im happy with. He was responsive, called me to discuss what I was looking for. Sent me a timeline and gave me a list of questions I need to answer before the wedding. I look forward to the pictures and video. I'm really excited.

 

We aren't doing crazy add ons by the resort. I want it to be elegant, chic and simple. Beautiful center pieces and a great time.

 

I'm going to DIY my own table numbers, seating charts and misc items for the ceremony and carry it on.

 

Hair and makeup come in my package, and so does pressing your bridal gown. I realize now I just have details to worry about and making sure everyones makes their final travel payments.

 

Shoot me a message if you have any questions or are a Royal bride. Id love to chat!

One of my friend was married in January this year in Houston. It was indoor night function and  arrangement was beyond description.  So wonderful was the light arrangement, catering arrangement that I can't describe it in my words. They have their own professional photographers, whose photography techniques we can't compare from any other photographer. This event will remain fresh in my whole life.
