Suneera & Faizal's Vintage Glam Destination Wedding {Mexico}

2014 May 28 - by Preeti
Lovelies, get ready for a glamorous wedding at the luxury resort city of Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Suneera and Faizal did not let the rain ruin their multi-day wedding, which meant their party was greater than ever.

Grab that cup of chai and get ready for a Mexico destination Indian wedding! Big thanks to f5Photography for the photos.

Tell us about the wedding!

Azul Fives is just gorgeous. It is small enough where you have a boutique hotel feel to it and you can be surrounded by your entire guest at all times! We had almost 200 guests at our wedding and pretty much occupied the whole resort. It was perfect.

A huge part about our wedding was that it was a 200 person destination wedding. Everyone that came was there to celebrate with us and just have a blast. Faizal and I are blessed with the most unbelievable friends and family who really do party like rock stars.

What was the inspiration for your wedding?

My wedding style was all GLAM and VINTAGE! The color palette was rose and blush tones over ivory and white. I wanted chandeliers...everywhere. I wanted detail detail detail from our mason jar table # escort cards, to the personalized seating chart on the table. I didn’t want to miss out any detail and make the entire weekend unforgettable from start to finish.

We had life size cartoon cut outs for our step and repeat on the first event night, an amazing fun welcome bag filled with tons of goodies, personalized CD, every night had a gorgeous explanation card to explain the ceremonies to all guests etc. etc. For our guest sign-in, we had two different boards: one was a Dallas Cowboy’s themed one (my fave team) and the other was a Miami Dolphins team guest sign in (Faizal’s favorite).

What was the hardest part about wedding planning?

When we arrived the weather was HORRIBLE. And when I say horrible... I mean a bride's worst nightmare. Our Thursday event (Mehndi/Pithi) was indoors - so we were safe. Maybe the weather would get better tomorrow. Nope. Rained every single day. As a bride I really did not let it get to me because in all honesty - 200 of the most important pal in our lives were here to celebrate our big day with us and our families. I had to ensure that they had the best best best time possible.

We had an unbelievable team who put together contingency plans for Friday and Saturday (KisCubed Events and Occasions by Shangri-La). None of our guest knew the difference. We partied every night until 3 am dancing until our feet fell off. (Thanks to DJRad our DJ and Sumeet Virk on Dhol). The dance party was epic. Knowing how much fun our guest had...rain our what truly made our wedding so special and in many guests words ""the wedding of the century”.

What was your favorite part of the wedding?

Our youngest cousins put together an unbelievable video that described mine and Faizal’s relationship. From shopping at the mall to working. They ended with an original song they made called “It’s the time.” It left me laughing, crying, and totally speechless. BEST WEDDING GIFT EVER!

What advice do you have for future brides and grooms to be?

Everything will work out. Just trust your team and have fun!

Anything else you would like to add?

One more thing. OUR VENDORS ROCKED. F5photography. To die for. He is so talented... it’s ridiculous. Our same day edit by Ryan Rodinis, just wow! Biggggg shout out to them! (Also ...because we didn’t get to take a ton of classic wedding day pictures due to the rain... Rahul from F5 suggested we take it all in and do a trash the dress the next day in the Mexican cenotes. The pictures from the shoot came out incredible and I’m so glad we did it!).
