I went on easter weekend so if you consider it just make sure that doesn't happen to you!! otherwise the hotel is beautiful!!
good to know. The hotel has very mixed reviews on travel sites. But I love the location. Plus, a lot of my cousins would love the fact that there is a club on site!

It's a running joke with my fi that we can just go to the club to continue the wedding (the site says it closes at 4 or 6am!)

Oh, boy, I'd be afraid of having anything open until 4 with my friends near by!

Thanks for all the responses everyone! This is exciting and I'm glad that there's such a great community!

 

We're having a largish DW...probably inviting about 150 people. Will probably not go with any of the all inclusives. We are thinking the Westin or Marriot but will wait and see on our scouting trip. I like the idea of having everyone at the same place, so something like Playa Fiesta might not work. Umm...what else, don't have a whole lot of other details quite yet. It's exciting, but crazy!

Welcome! Sorry for the late welcome, but I was house shopping AGAIN all weekend. So great to see another PV bride! That is a pretty good size DW - have you decided on a date yet? How big is your wedding party? I am getting married June 8, 2007 in Las Caletas!

I think we're leaning towards the European Plans for a couple reasons:

- The trends for past weddings is that people like to go off resort/ hotels to eat and drink

- Not that they would HAVE to stay at the selected AI, but I would like to have EVERYONE on the same resort, too, during the day. Say if we were at Dreams, would it not allow guests who are staying elsewhere onto the property?

 

It guess it would be helpful to know how much more expensives AI's are compared to EP's. Any thoughts?

 

In terms of dates...not sure yet. We're thinking Jan 2008 because our friends and families are mainly in Boston/NY and California. This way the weather will be snowy on the East Coast and rainy on the West...a nice warm getaway for everyone! We're struggling a little with our wedding parties. It would either be one each (our siblings) or 9 on my side and 7 or 8 on his. I know it's crazy, but I also want my friends up there with me! We go back and forth, but should make our decisions soon!!!

Say if we were at Dreams, would it not allow guests who are staying elsewhere onto the property? they would most likely charge a day pass for guests not staying at the resort and that can be expensive

 

It guess it would be helpful to know how much more expensives AI's are compared to EP's. Any thoughts? it can be a pretty big difference for the events. dreams los cabos charges $18-22 per person for a private event set up...this includes food and drinks...that would be hard to beat when you have to pay for food and alchohol..also, resorts like dreams and palace resorts have a "free" wedding package so they will provide officiant, help with legal marriages, blood test, etc. and barebone decorations/flowers, sometimes a small cake for bride and groom etc.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
