@beachbeth I am doing the wedding ceremony on the beach at 4pm which will be immediately followed by the champagne toast and the cocktail hour on the beach in the same spot where the ceremony took place. We'll then move inside for the reception starting at 6:30. I was thinking exactly what @DLS2016 just said though that the groom and I will probably miss most of it from the picture taking but at least the guests will be occupied?

Is anyone doing anything instead of a rehearsal dinner? I want to do something for people to get to know each other before the wedding but I don't know what that could be....
Something on the beach?

There are non-motorized activities like sailing (4ppl per boat) that can be reserved. One day they had bull riding on the beach .
We did a private catamaran cruise through paradise sailing. I think it was $900 for up to 12 people for 4 hours. There was snorkeling and swimming and we saw a sea turtle!! I actually touched it! Amazing!!!!
Another option is to get some taxis and go to DT playa Del Carmen! There is a lot to see there. Re: people preforming Mayan Dances and it's very safe. Police presence and security is everywhere.

@beachbeth I highly recommend going to playa del Carmen with your party!! I love it there. There is great food, lots of shopping and a cute lounge area layout with chairs and tables by Starbucks. We also saw a wedding party going to xcaret for the day prior to their wedding. They also have a GREAT beach area and restaurants/bar. If you like shrimp ceviche and cold beer you will absolutely love it!
How was everyone's experience with pictures?!
@lcole1 I'm sorry I just saw your post! Yes everything went smoothly for us!
We didn't meet with a wedding planner because we didn't do a wedding package we did a private dinner on the beach so we didn't get the standard wedding "items".
The The photographer and videographer were FANTASTIC!! Their names were Camelo and Mannuel (spelling probably is off). They really worked with us and just made the photo and video sessions fun! I have to say they had us do a lot of "kiss now" pictures and in the video there's a lot of it too. Kind of wish I would of asked for a couple different shots but I am very satisfied with their work.
If anyone is getting their hair done at the spa I can try to find the lady's name on something we have from their it was Cervantes (along those lines) I can be off though. She was amazing. I still get compliments on my hair. I can't speak for their makeup because I did my own.
Also when we returned from our dinner they had decorated our room for a "honeymoon" rose petals everywhere chocolate 2 shirts it was beautiful!
