Hi there.

I say start emailing/researching different resort wedding packages now and see which ones offer things that are conducive with what price range you are in and offer what kind things ( activites, all-inclusive deals, etc) you want. That way, you have a clear picture of what's on the table.

Then email the wedding coordinators to set a date and time to meet.

That's what we did and it was SO much better than being shellshocked with pricing and bad resorts! :)

I have stayed at the Moon Palace in Rivera Maya and we are getting married at Dreams Cancun. You may want to decide where you want the location of your resort. The Moon Palace is outside of Cancun (obviusly cuz its in Rivera Maya) and not too much nearby to do. But DC is right in the middle of hotel zone and everything. So you may want to decide if you want to be a bit more confined to the resort or freeer to wander the area.

What are you looking for in a resort? Child friendly? All inclusive? We are going to Cancun as well in 3 weeks for site visits and plan to see the following resorts:

Dreams, Hyatt, Le Meridien, JW Marriott, CasaMagna, Westin

I have heard a lot of good things about Dreams, it's definitely worth checking out. I agree with cmmdee that you should price everything out beforehand. Also, take lots of pictures to help you remember each place. Good luck!

srbina and soon to be Mrs. Glassner -


Hey ladies! I am also going to Cancun for a site visit. I'm going April 23-27...are you going to be there during that time?


I can't decide where I want to look yet either..I'm thinking:


Moon Palace



JW Marriott and/or CasaMagna Marriott

Hyatt Caribe

Fiesta Americana Condesa or Grand Coral Beach


I want to narrow it down to the top 3 and only site visit those but that is turning out to be a much harder task than I imagined!


Anyone who has any info/advice on these hotels would be greatly appreciated!

I think the best thing to do is decide what's important to you:


size of the resort

kids allowed or adults only

price range

all inclusive

wedding locations



and then you can narrow it down that way and visit the resorts you are truly interested in.


For example if you know without a doubt you want an all inclusive, don't bother visiting the non AI, or if you know you will have kids, don't visit the adults only, kwim?


That's just my opinion but I think it will really help.

    • 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.
