Canadian Bride Planning Wedding in PDC, Mexico
Posted 01 January 2007 - 08:24 PM
Glad to be joining this forum. Just starting my research into my PDC Wedding in November 2007. Debating between Grand XCaret Occidental, Riu Palace and Iberostar Lindo. Having a group of about 40, all age ranges, so thinking best to go with all-inclusive that's larger. Need to keep it affordable for guest as well.
Any advice is much appreciated. Look forward to participating in forums.
Thanks to Jackie for referring me to this site!

I'm glad you made it over to the forum! It really is so helpfull.
Have you ever been to PDC? I havent but have done some research into it. All of the resorts you have mentioned seem great for a wedding that includes children and can host a larger guest list and is also affordable for your guests.
I havent heard much about the Iberostar as far as weddings go but my boss stays there when he heads over to Mexico and he loves it. RIU's are always a good choice for weddings because they are very experienced with DW's. We are also getting married at the Occidental Grand Xcaret and as far as the resorts mentioned above goes (except for the beach) I think this one is the prettiest. Obviously I'm a bit biased to that resort though. lol.
If you have any specific questions feel free to post them and they are sure to be answered!

PS... I love Canadians! I have tons of Canadian friends and I've only met 1 Canuck I didn't like.

No I have never been to PDC, so I'm flying a little blind here. Thanks for your tips on the beach and the travel time to PDC. I can understand what you said about Edith, I'm sure that is true. I have a friend getting married at the Grand Gala Esmeralda in February. I unfortunately am not going (she's a school friend, we are not super close). My fiancee and I decided to book a last minute cruise instead--but we are headed down the Baja side of Mexico.
So I pretty much have to rely on other people's advice

Thanks, if you can remember where you stayed that would be great. I'm not making a trip down there before hand and have never been before so I'm pretty much relying on other peoples' references.

Not to worry, a lot of brides dont make it down for a site visit and everything still works out wonderfully. Just really try and grab all and any info you can find on your top resorts and than compare them all, prices, location, style etc... Then book the resort that overall best suites your wedding needs.
If you go to the search bar at the top of this page you should be able to find some good info on both the OGX and the RIU palace. I'm not sure if this forum has any info on the Iberostar yet.
