Down to the Wire!! Need help finding resort in RM! Please!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I am now really down to the wire & have my fiance's family; as well, as my own asking constantly where & when our wedding is happening. We were deciding between Cabo & RM...and have FINALLY decided for sure on RM. We can't wait! Now, its finding a great resort...


We are thinking were going to have @ 50 people there (maybe more) and it will be mostly adults, but my fiance does have 2 little sisters ages 10 & 13, so we'll need a resort that allows them to attend.


So all in all, I could use some of your wonderful advice (personal, instead of deciding from internet pictures) on some recommendations or resorts that you all loved! Also, I would love to hear the negatives too, so I am prepared. I greatly appreciate it & hope to have a resort picked & to start contacting them within next week to week & a half!!!


Thank you ladies in advace! smile03.gif

There are so many great resorts in RM.


So you need a good family resort that allows kids.

Tell us more....do you want to get married on the beach, under a gazebo or in a chapel?


I chose Dreams Tulum because the beach is beautiful and we want to marry on the beach so this was perfect for us! The resort is beautiful and I've heard many great things on this forum from the brides married there.

there are so so many resorts in the MR, it's difficult to make recommendations. If you like the idea of a huge resort complex with tons of choices (these often have little trams to help you get around since it can be a far walk) you can try the palladium resorts, the bahia principe resorts, or the barcelo resorts. Try to find out more of your decision factors, the only one you listed is that it can't be adult's only. Do you want a resort that offers free wedding packages? (the dreams resorts do) Do you want a resort with a golf course? (Moon Palace has one). Do you want a resort with a disco? Do you want to be close to nightlife? (if so pick something in or near playa del carmen). Do you want to be not too far from the airport, if so pick something in the northern end of the MR (Moon Palace and Paradisus are 2 that I think of).


check out the spreadsheet I just posted in another thread http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t14821 it might help you make a decision.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
