DREAM Wedding with 51 people - Chic + upscale + ornate + under the stars
My husband and I had our wedding at Excellence Playa Mujeres in December and it was absolutely our dream wedding.Sent on 12/28/2018
Lorena, our wedding planner, was so
responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process which started 6+ months before the big day. We planned everything over email via very detailed lists/photos/back and forth convos regarding all details and pricing.
The night before the wedding we had a two
Hour welcome party at Ceco terrace. We decorated the terrace with a big bar, a custom wooden welcome sign with our names on it, a custom photo table with polaroids and a guest brook, bistro lights, DJ booth, cocktail tables, and flowers/vines. It was a blast. Waiters passed out appetizers and we had signature cocktails (and every other cocktail under the sun!) flowing. Lots of dancing, drinking, talking and laughing. It was the perfect way to welcome our guests. Afterwards Lorena arranged for us to do a private rehearsal dinner at the Italian restaurant for no extra charge (planned the dinner last minute the week we arrived- couldn’t plan it ahead of time without incurring an extra fee).
Our ceremony was on the beach with a stunning gazebo dressed with hundreds of roses and large flower arrangements. Music was played via a full DJ/speaker setup. I had a wooden walkway and a special place for guests to put their shoes with bistro chairs. The aisle was lined with orchids and tiki torches.
The cocktail hour was at X lounge (right behind the ceremony) which we decorated with lights / tables / vines / Flowers. The waiter staff passed lovely appetizers and theme cocktails for an hour and a live carribean trio played music.
Our reception was also on the beach in an elaborate large white structure under the stars with wooden floors, chandeliers, lights, Flowers, and decorations galore. The crew started building the structure the morning of the wedding, at 6am! It was really a fairy tail.
Important!! I HIGHLY recommend getting the digital photo booth for the reception. This was sooo much fun + comes with props + the photos turned out to be awesome (great lighting). The guests had SO much fun with this.
Nearly all of the decorations for all events were provided by alquimia (partnering agency to EPM, Vanessa was my rep who was extremely easy to work with and super nice!! Alquimia have an amazing catalogue with really everything a girl could want wedding wise!). Take a look at alquimias catalogue - I promise everything is ACTUALLY as beautiful as in the alquimia catalogue pictures.
I can’t emphasize how gorgeous the whole wedding was. It was magical and many of our guests said it was the best wedding they’ve been to.
We brought our own DJ and photographer (we have friends in NYC who did this for us), but the resort can provide this if needed as well.
I had my hair and makeup done at the spa along with my bridesmaids, my mom, and the mother of the groom. They use MAC cosmetics makeup and did a phenomenal job all around. I brought extensions for my hair which they had no problem clipping in and doing a nice loose up-do.
If you love the beach and want a chic upscale wedding for 80 people or less - go with Lorena and Excellence Playa Mujeres!!

Review of Excellence Playa Mujeres
Upon arrival we were greeted with cool towels and champagne. We were ushered to our two story suite over looking the beautiful resort and the ocean when looking from the opposite way. Everything we ate our entire stay was AMAZING! The lobster house, the streak house (go visit Edgar!) and the Indian (go visit Angel!) were our favorites. Breakfast at Toscana's was amazing every single day. The martini bar's drinks were beyond incredible! Diego from the courtyard bar was hysterical and inviting! Lucia got us whatever we needed when we were by the pool, she was so kind and attentive! The people listed above were our favorite staff members during our stay. All of our guests even knew who we were talking about when we would mention them. Service was beyond a 10 everywhere we went! When it was time to meet with our WC Maribel we found out that she had broken her ankle the day prior and we had a stand in Mayla. We are so so so grateful we had Mayla, she went above and beyond for us in every which way! We never once had to worry, our wedding day went flawlessly. She made sure everything was perfect. She was so calm and relaxed that it allowed me to do the same, we put all of our faith in her, and boy did she deliver! Thursday night they had a white party and reserved 5 tables for all of our guests to attend instead of having a rehearsal dinner. They had music and a fire show with amazing food and drink. Saturday night the day after our wedding Hector the Manager for the entertainment found us by the pool and asked how many tables to reserve for the Mexican themed night. He did not need to do that but it was so appreciated as our guests and us had another amazing night! We love the Excellence and LOVED Mayla and everyone we encountered! We cannot wait to go back next year! Get married at the Excellence Playa Mujeres you will NOT be disappointed :)

My husband and I had our destination wedding here July 2018. I can't say enough good things about this resort and Lorena, their wedding coordinator. Thankfully it did not rain, but they had a back up plan in case. Their wedding packages are very reasonable and you get a lot for what you pay. It was a beautiful perfect wedding. I would do it all again if I could and not change a thing. My family and friends were blown away by the staff and accommodations.Sent on 08/06/2018
