I think we'll probably end up with maybe 45? Totally guessing. I'm going to add some tiki torches and lanterns for sure. Photography probably pretty basic. I was wondering, how do they set up lighting inside the palapa?

That's how many we had in total :)

 

There is regular lighting on the posts in the palapa. You can also pay to have the lighted Chinese lanterns. They were about $100 I believe. I was hesitant to get them so she threw them in for free, but honestly I thought they were worth the money and would have paid for them.

Ya those are on the add on list. I wonder if I could ask them to change the lighting colour without incurring extra cost.

Changing the lighting on the posts may be possible. You'll find they have different colored lighting effects all over the resort. Changing the light color in the hanging Chinese lanterns I doubt. They are pretty high up and if they would do it I would assume a set up fee would be charged for the 'hassle'. The lanterns are always there. If you pay they turn the lights on. If you don't they are hanging with no lights. That's what my WC told me anyways in so many words ' I'll just throw them in for free cause they are there and just a flick of the switch'

It doesn't show the messages or I don't know where to see them. If a Krista F is reading this let me know too bahah :)

 

Edit - I figured it out.

 

You should ask. You'll notice at night after your wedding the ceremony area is lit up in green. I'll find a pic.

@@JoannaBanana Did Adriana send you 2016 price list? I wonder if the honor the 2015 prices if you booked prior to the 2016 coming out? I ended up doing the presidential package but now after reading your thread I am wondering I should have just done the free package and then upgraded.. these decisions seem impossible.

They honored the 2014 prices for me. What I did was make a list of my must haves and then priced out each package with the upgrades. Even with all my upgrades I was still cheaper than the presidential package as it didn't include some things I needed but had lots I didn't. I'd suggest maybe trying that? You can change your package I believe since you already locked in the palapa.

That's one that they may not do .... Depending who you ask! I was told no early on but then my WC did it 'hush hush' but only for my family and bridal party. If that's super important you may need to stick to the presidential package or one that includes it (?gold)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
