Destination Weddings in Playa!

14895_IMG_5675When I told my friends we were having a destination wedding, most of them thought I’d gone and lost my mind. I suppose being a ”type A” personality who’s organized plenty of events in my day, just made it hard for them to fathom I’d willingly hand over my wedding plans to a complete stranger. But that’s just what I did…sorta.

We soon found out that the resort we chose to host our wedding offered “cookie cutter” packages that for love or money couldn’t be altered to fit our personalities or tastes. Emails & calls went unanswered and frankly I’d have expected to hear from Brad Pitt before I received a return call from our resort wedding planner. Many friends have had exceptional resort weddings, but this particular resort left a real bad taste in our mouth. Soon our resort wedding was scrapped and it was back to the old drawing board.

Long story short, we found a highly recommended wedding company (AJUA Maya Weddings) and my instincts paid off immediately when they called me right after I’d sent an email. Our wedding was even better than we first imagined including an oceanfront beautifully decorated wedding venue, a mariachi parade through Playa! (a real hit!), a live Latin salsa band and a table-side flambé steak & seafood dinner that made everyone’s taste buds dance! And a memory forever stitched in our minds were the performing waiters serving food & drinks from their heads, to the best conga line ending with tequila shots! For someone who expects snafus, I was more than pleasantly surprised that everything went off “without a hitch” and we got hitched with our kids as witnesses!
