I am overwhelmed already

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I just joined this forum and I love it already!

 

My name is Valerie

I am from Edmonton, Alberta (Canada)

My fiance's name is Jason and we got engaged on this valentines day on the beaches of the mayan riveria

We plan on getting married in Mexico feb. 2009 (maybe at the Grand Occidental Xcaret)

 

I love all of the mayan riviera and I have no idea which resort I want. They all seem so beautiful so I have no idea were to even start.

I also have no idea what kind of deals I can get if I have a wedding around 25 people...will i get much of a discount at the resort or for airfare?..

haha i have a million more questions...

 

How did everyone else start? Did you go see a travel agent right away?

Welcome to the forum. Fortunately we have some travel agents that are members as well. Maybe contact one of them?

 

I personally didn't do any room blocks- So many people were wish washy and I didn't want the stress of having to fill space. Everyone just booked on their own. It worked out in the end.

 

Don't stress out yet!! Things will go a lot smoother now that you will have others to help. SO much information is at your finger tips.

I picked my resort on my own after a ton of research. I then found this site and found out how much everyone loved Dreams Cancun and felt soooo much better about my choice. You can contact a TA and see what they have to say. Welcome to the site and congrats!

Welcome fellow Canadian! It is certainly overwhelming at first - it took us 4 months to finally decided on a resort which I think is the hardest part for most people.

 

We picked a resort using a lot of information from this forum, trip advisor, Debbies Carribean reviews etc., looking at pics, websites etc.

 

Once we had decided on a resort we contacted a Travel Agent and we were able to get an all-inclusive group rate through Air Canada Vacations.

 

We have people coming from Toronto and Calgary if that helps - I think the best way to go (and what we found was cheapest) is to get a package!
