For those just starting out like me, here are a few questions of mine Daniela answered. Hope this helps!

 

I am interested in "The Aqua" package and is expecting 50 guests. Just have a few questions:

 

The Ceremony

 

· Is set-up/clean-up included in package? yes

 

· Is there anything that we will need that's not included in the package? Probably DJ, open bar…additional decoration maybe…

 

1/2 Post-Ceremony Cocktail Party

 

Where is this party typically held? Is it at the site of the dinner reception? Its usually held at the Tequila Reef Terrace. Where we also have the dinner receptions usually.

 

What are my options for having an open bar during the party? The charge for open bar is $10 usd + 10% tax + 15% service per person per hour.

 

Dinner Reception

 

· Is clean-up/tear-down included? Yes it is.

 

· What is the service charge or is it included? It is included.

 

· What are my options for having an open bar during the dinner? The same, $10 usd + + per person per hour. If you purchase the open bar for the 3 hours reception, I give you without charge the Open Bar during ½ hour cocktail post ceremony J

 

· If there are more than 20 people, do we order an additional cake? Is there a cake cutting fee? Ill let you know!

 

· How much time do we have for the dinner reception? It is a 3 hour dinner reception.

 

Lodging

 

· Are there any specials for the couple? If you book more than 20 rooms you will receive an upgrade subject to availability for the next category of room you booked.

 

· Is there a minimum requirement for in-house guests? Is there a max? Not exactly.

 

· Are there special rates for blocks of rooms for guests? There are, but those are the ratyes we use for Conventions and Incentive Groups, so actually I suggest to book with a Travel Agent or Tour Operator; you will find good deals wioth airfare, transportations and hotel stays J

 

· Typically, what are the all inclusive rates for May/June? I checked online for a 4 night stay for 2 guests and it was about $1200. Is this the rate per person or for the 2 guests? Yes those are the rates.

 

Other

 

Is it a requirement to use the in-house photographer and videographer? Do you have a portofolio of the photographer's work? If you bring your own photographer theres a $300 usd fee that has to be cover. You can see our photographer job at MEXICAN WEDDING PHOTOS and Cancun Wedding Videos | Mayan Riviera Wedding Videographer | Miguel Cantarell - Home

 

 

When we make a deposit it hold a date, can we also reserve a reception site? So far, my favorite is a beach ceremony and dinner outdoors. Yes you can do that.

Which date should I chose, if any at all? I will have to make a decision by tomorrow morning worried2.gif

 

May 18

Pros - In May so better weather?

Cons - Taking Mon & Tue off more inconvenient for guests?

 

June 19

Pros - On Friday, so more convenient for guests to fly?

Cons - Hurricane season, hot weather? Lower possibility of such?

Pretty much! All Fri-Sun reserved in May and the only Monday left I believe. For June, the earliest or only, Friday. I don't think I can wait until December though!

Hmmm, if it were me, I would probably go with the Monday date. People can make a long weekend out of it. Do you have any guests that are absolute must haves at your wedding? (like parents, siblings, a best friend) If so, I would run it past them and make sure it will work, but be sure not to get too many opinions because you might end up going crazy. lol

I would check on some websites like Travelocity etc and see the price differences. If there is not much difference I would go with the Monday one. Really your guests are going to be taking off the same amount of vaca from work b/c they are going to be at the resort over the weekend still. So if you present it that way, then you won't have to deal with hurricane season and really hot temps.

 

That's my thoughts...

Rates from resort site and Expedia/Kayak/etc :

 

Sat, May 16 - Tue, May 19

$300 per night for 2 ppl -- all inclusive; Deluxe Garden View Junior Suite

$593 per person from Austin to Cancun

 

Thu, June 18- Sun, June 21

$300 per night for 2 ppl -- all inclusive

$652 per person from Austin to Cancun

 

 

Did you use a travel agent and were you able to get a better deal on flights and lodging? The resort rates aren't bad but it would be nice if the flights were lower. Most of our guests are flying from Texas, California, Pennsylania and Michigan.

 

If you could recommend anyone or share your experience I would greatly appreciate it!

    • Hello would-be-brides! I'm Gaurav, and I've been shooting weddings for over 5 years for my wedding photography business - I Don't Say Cheese. I specialize in candid photography and take great pleasure capturing the story and the essence of love that couples share. I've been shooting around India and have done many destination weddings. However, I would LOVE to cover some international weddings and build my portfolio. It doesn't hurt that I absolutely adore traveling! Back home I charge $3500 for a day's shoot but I'm offering my services for FREE for a chance to shoot your wedding.  You can see my work on my website and on my instagram page. I'd love to discuss the possibilities with you so feel free to reply here or contact me through the website/instagram. You can see a sample set of a wedding I recently shot in Kerela, India here. Wishing you lots of love and luck for your big day!  
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
