Bridal Party Tips

One of the first items during wedding planning is to advise your bride and groom to choose responsible and sober people to be a part of your wedding party. The people you chose should be there to help you on your special day, so if tequila is an attendant’s best friend, you may want to consider someone else. The less stress for you and your family…. the better. Regarding numbers there is no rule of how many attendants you should have. If you have an odd number of men or women, a Groomsmen can escort two ladies or vice/versa. Also, an attendant can walk down by themselves. If you want to have special guests help with the wedding, they can help pass out wedding programs, usher guests to their seats or with your destination beach wedding, pass out “flip flops” for your beach ceremony. Regarding gender, your attendants do not have to be of the same sex so mix it up if you like! And, if you are working with a small budget, keep the bridal party small in order to cut down on corsages, boutonnieres, and bridesmaid bouquets.

Keep in mind, Playa del Carmen is a popular wedding destination and a vendor can only service so many events in one day. A reception site, church, vendor, etc is not confirmed until they have received a deposit and prices are subject to change until deposited.
