I want the location Picked!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ugh, this is so hard, I want to get onto the fun part of dresses, STDs and OOT bags... though I'm sure those will stress me out in some other way when the time comes!!!

 

I think I have narrowed it down to Grand Palladium Colonial, Gran Bahia Principe Akumal and Riu Palace Mexico (or dreams cancun as a backup).

 

I think that Riu Palace is probably going to be more expensive, but waiting to hear room rates to see if that could make sense for my guests.

 

Otherwise, I have had NO responses from any of the hotels to my enquiries, so that is not good (I have contacted all 4 about 1 to 2 weeks ago).

 

Any thoughts? I'm hoping for something gorgeous and perfect of course, but want to modify that with something that is affordable for our guests. I love the beach, so want a beach there, and I want a swim up bar, and a beautiful reception and ceremony spot, with dinner and dancing, for about 50 people.

 

Thoughts anyone?

maybe Tammy can help you get in touch with them, she usually has contacts at the resorts. Sorry you have to go through this, that's super frustrating. You can start doing the fun stuff too maybe that will take the stress off of picking a place.

I'm not much help since I'm a Cabo bride, but what helped me when I was making my decision last fall was writing out pros and cons to the resorts. I listed the most important things to me (location, atmosphere, price, amenities) and compared the couple resorts I was debating. Also, the other part that really weighed into the equation for me was how much information I could get about a resort (whether via the forum, or other avenues) and how responsive the hotel staff were in responding to me. Even when I had not selected Dreams as my location, the WC was still prompt in responding to my emails (always got back to me within a week) and this was very important to me. Hope that helps a little...

magsie,

 

grand palladium is most responsive (i usually gt an answer within a day) and riu the least but i have not worked with gran bahia on weddings.

 

in terms of price riu palace is by far more expensive.

I think I've decided on Grand Palladium....I THINK!!! Hahaha...that's today :) Who knows what I will think tomorrow.....I just felt like it was the right spot... I don't know why but I felt happy when I found it.....FINALLY! Plus, I've been obsessing and stressing so much that I nearly called off the DW all together and went to the courthouse and said SCREW IT! But I think I'm back on track....I certainly feel your confusion though!

Oooh congrats Jen on picking a location! I am so excited for you! Doesn't it take great stress of your back to just have the location picked?

Nope....I've actually never been to Mexico! Originally my FI didn't want the wedding in Mexico because "you go to Mexico for spring break, not a wedding"....ummmm....whatever....but I kept getting stuck everywhere else, things were too expensive, flight was to long/to expensive, I wasn't excited about it...etc. Then, I read something about RM and loved the whole jungle/ocean concept....it just seemed AWESOME to me. I found the resort somewhere....looked at Trip advisor, found hardly any negative comments (RARE) and for some reason I just got a feeling that it was right......I don't know. It may change as I get more info but for right now I'm REALLY excited!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
