We are having around 25 guests and we decided to have the bridal party sit at the head table with us and then split the rest of the guests up into 3 tables with assigned seating. We decided to do this for a number of reasons:


1) We can place family members together and put people who we think would mesh well with one another together.


2) I find that round tables allows for more conversation between all people at the table. Whe you are all sitting at a long table, the conversation is usually focused to the people directly in front of you...or to the side of you.


3) I wanted to have a centerpiece for each table, not really a good reason LOL just a preference.


We will have the place cards on the table. Since there are only 3 tables I'm sure it won't be too hard for guests to figure out where they are sitting. The reason why we are doing that is because we are having different favours for the men and woman and different for our underage guests.


The only thing to decide on now is whether we want to have table numbers and then have a seating chart by the guest book. Don't know if it is necessary.


I hope that helps :)

I had 32 guest and I choose to have to the long table set up just because it was more intimate. We (the bride & groom) sat at the head table. My parents sat to my left. Best man & Maid of honor sat to the right. And everyone sat wherever they want. It was perfect because everyone got mingle during dinner. My guest didn't have to get up to go to the next table & the next....

    • 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
