A Little Bit of Wedding Humor!

IMG_0362Wedding season is about to go into full swing here in the Riviera Maya. November is the start of high season and we are about to get very busy! We wanted to take a little time to share this cute article we read a while back about kids and their views on marriage. A tiny pause to laugh before the fun begins!

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?

“You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.” – Alan, age 10

“No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.” – Kristen, age 10

WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?

“Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.” – Camille, age 10

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

‘You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids” -Derrick, age 8

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?

“Both don’t want any more kids.” – Lori, age 8

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

“Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.”- Lynnette, age 8

“On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” – Martin, age 10

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?

“I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.” – Craig, age 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

“When they’re rich.” – Pam, age 7

“The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that.” – Curt, age 7

“The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do.” – Howard, age 8

IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?

“It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.”  – Anita, age 9

HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN’T GET MARRIED?

“There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn’t there?” -Kelvin, age 8

Yvette and Alvaro, Kool Beach Club, Playa del Carmen Destination Wedding

playa-del-carmen-weddingThe tourists and vendors on Playa del Carmen’s famous Avenida Quinta sure have been spoiled with wedding parades this year! Mariachis and beautiful people dressed in nice suits and pretty dresses celebrating down the street have been a regular occurrence on the strip!

Since Yvette and Alvaro were married right at the start of 5th, at the Capilla de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, the parade was the perfect way to get their guests a few blocks away to the reception at Kool Beach Club

playa -del-carmen-wedding-plannersWe were so touched when we read bride Yvette’s sweet words when she sent us her review. She was a dream to work with and we’re so thankful for our kind hearted clients!

Maria is not only good at what she does; she is good at everything in between. She is reliable, detail oriented, honest, communicative, quick to respond to emails, will go 110% to find what you need, and the day of your wedding, she is ready to take on any situation. Everything went smoothly on our wedding day she was in charge, and took control of everything with a smile! All we had to worry about was having a good time and enjoying every moment with our guests.
