Hi from "undecided within Mexico" bride!

Recommended Posts

Welcome! We chose Riviera Maya after looking up resorts on tripadvisor and my travel agent recommending it. She has had several brides get married at my resort and they all LOVED it. Also, coming from CT I think that flights will be less expensive for our guests. And, I wanted to be on the eastern side... not sure why, just something stuck in my head.

We are at Paradisus Riviera Cancun.

Thanks for all the well-wishes and advice!! I've been scouring this site for the last week - so much good info!

 

Current status: fell in love with PV, but i just cant justify asking guests to spend $700 on airfare, when RM is only $350. Still, i havent found a location (non-resort) or wedding planner i like in RM so basically no progress has been made.

 

Ive seen reviews for RM wedding planners on here (outside a resort planner, like Ajua or Weddings in Playa) but im not impressed. Ajua even wanted $775 just to talk about different locations!!!

Hey Bostonian-

 

I totally understand about your preference for RM. Considering your location it will probably be much better to have cheaper and shorter flights down. Just more conveient all around.

 

I don't know much about non-resort planning, but I should mention that i had great experience with Perla at the Paradisus. We considered the AI hotel for our wedding until switching to Dreams PV. I've been in close contact with Perla and she was so helpful with answering my questions. I have contacted several resorts and she was by far the most attentive of all the wedding planners I dealt with. We considered Paradisus because the resort is very beautiful and is located south of cancun in an area called Riviera Cancun - so the beach there is very nice (a little seaweed from the coral reef right out there). Rooms started at $300 per night dbl. occupancy around June 1st so we thought that the price was reasonable considering it was a pretty high end resort. I would suggest checking this hotel out if you don't have success finding a non-resort site and planner! Good luck!
