    Hello everyone!

     

    My name is LaTayia but I go by Tia. My fiance and I were recently engaged on May 22nd. We are extremely interested in a destination wedding and have decided to have it in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We took our first international trip together there and thought it would be really nice to go back to where we started. Currently I am interested in having it at Paradisus Playa Del Carmen because that is where we stayed our first trip and since we have young children coming I felt it would be the best option since there is an adults only and a family side. 

     

    After looking at the website the tailor made option seems to be the best fit for us. We plan to get married June 2, 2018 so I know it's a little early to actually book everything but I would definitely love any advice you all are able to offer. There will be about 40 or so people in attendance.

     

    I have a few questions that hopefully someone may be able to address:

    1) When it comes to booking the resort for a wedding, do you have to pay a down payment or do you pay in full?

     

    2) How does making room reservations work? Each couple that will be coming will be paying for their own rooms so do we just tell the hotel how many rooms we will need and then the block them out? Or do my fiance and I have to make a payment to reserve the rooms?

     

    3) If in the event that it rains, where do they have the ceremonies?

     

    4) Is there anything that we are not permitted to bring to the resort? Such as a unity candle or remembrance candles for loved ones who are no longer with us? A related question is, has anyone packed the knives to cut the cake with in their luggage?

     

    5) Can anyone offer any information about how much each package costs? I know I can call the resort and ask but I am curious to know the range in which others have paid.

     

    6) Does the DJ that is recommended by the resort play all types of music/can you request him to play certain songs?

     

    7) For those who have had their hair and makeup done at the spa, how did you like it? Do they specialize in all hair types and complexions?

     

    8) If anyone could give their experiences on the ease or trouble they went through when planning their wedding at this resort went that would be great!

     

    I know I have asked a lot of questions here but I am just really excited! lol

     

    Thank you in advance for all of your help :)

          @laaron09 Congrats on narrowing down to this beautiful resorts, its never too early to start planning a destination wedding, your guests will thank you for it , since this gives them enough notice.

           

          Let me get to your questions.

           

           

          1. Its always a deposit.  I guess you are referring to the wedding package. The rest of the wedding fees are paid 3months prior.

           

          2. When it comes to the room reservation.  I always advice you go with a Travel Agent.  if you can find one that dedicates themselves to destination weddings even better.  this will allow you to only worry about the actual wedding planning and leave the accommodation part to a TA.  each and every guests would need to put down their own room reservation. But you would need to do the room block first . 

           

          3.  In case of rain both ceremony and reception are in their ballrooms.

           

          4. You are more than welcome to bring all the personal touches, no issue at all.

           

          5. they packages change each year. I know they have 3 packages. in the past have always used their tailor made it offers a lot of things

           

          6. Yes the DJ sends out a format you can suggest all your music no problem.

           

          7. my last client who got married there was african america so they did everything for her. 

           

          You have nothing to worry about the food is excellent , the hotel is modern and still looks new.  you will have a good time.

           

          Here is the link to the wedding we did last August.

          Feel to ask away, I was just there last week with a different bride for 2017.

           

          Happy Planning

              Thank you to everyone for your feed.

              @dreamweddings thank you so much for answering my questions! I do have a few more questions though as I am new to all of this. I know I have time to actually get everything set up considering it's not until 2018 but how soon should I contact the resort? Also may you tell me how blocking rooms work? Will we have to pay anything for have them do a room block?

              I have been to this resort once before and I am excited to return. The rooms were gorgeous. I just want to be prepared so when I'm ready to make the call I can know what to expect.

              Again, thank you for answering my questions!

                @laaron09  you are right you have plenty of time.  I would contact the resort now, so they can send you all the information. Especially if you are planning on giving your guests enough time to save up for the trip.

                 

                about the room block.  I would ask any TA since they have the right information to answer this part. have you reached out to any of them yet?
