Looking for a Riviera Maya Adults only Wedding

Recommended Posts

I am looking at several possible locations on the RM and would love to hear comments on anyone who has already done site visits and had their wedding there. Possibilities include Secrets Capri, Eldorado Maroma, Excellence Riviera, Iberostar Grand, Ceiba del Mar. Any other advice would be great.

 

Important to me are: Food, Wine, Beach, Understated Elegance and of course price for family to attend.

I have heard the Iberostar Grand is amazing and will be staying there for my honeymoon (getting married at the Lindo since we'll have kids and it is cheaper for family). I'm not sure when you planning for, but I'd be happy to get info for you while I am there in November.

I didn't get married at Secrets Capri but I went there for a few days after my wedding. They are off the charts excellent. You pull up, it looks fabulous, you walk in and wow, the ambience is spa like, relaxing, and very classy. The customer service . . . wow. Very nice, helpful, english speaking personnel. My room . . . I have never stayed in such an extravagant room. We had trouble getting through to room service but if that happens just call the front desk and they will patch you in no problems. The food was excellent! All the restaurants were great! Its a smaller resort so easy to get around. A great big roomy beach for lounging, swimming, walking. The pool was very nice. Saw two weddings there. One was a larger wedding on the beach with private reception poolside and the other was an intimate wedding with just the couple at the poolside gazebo. Both were lovely. The night life there isn't all that but they do have a daily 6pm shuttle to Playa del Carmen for some nice shopping and restaurants. Senor Frogs was way fun.

Sorry I don't have pics but their website sums it up :).

Good luck!

i am getting married Oct. 9 at Aventura Spa Palace... I haven't actually been yet, but based the decision on A LOT of research and recommendations. I can tell you this though - every question or request i have had regarding any issue (major or minor) i have e-mailed my WC and she has gotten back to me within 24 hours with answers. And if she didn't know the answer, she has sent my e-mails on to someone else at the resort to get the info for me. The customer service has been incredible so far. smile159.gif

 

DanielleNDerrick - i hope you don't mind if I PM you for the pics/info as well? I'm already booked and paid for, but i love getting the confirmation that i made the right choice!

I am getting married at The Royal in Playa Del Carmen on August 14th. I can't believe that we leave in a month! We have seen so many beautiful pictures and read so many great reviews that our choice was easy. The cost was reasonable to fly from Detroit and it was an adults only resort, which was important to us. They do allow children for the day of the wedding if you need that, and their sister resort is right across the street. The sister resort is a family resort. Anyone who stays at The Royal is allowed to use all of the facilities at The Gran Porto and if people stay at the Gran Porto, they can pay for a day pass at the Royal if they wish. I'll be posting a trip report shortly after we return. We will be staying there for two glorious, relaxing weeks. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will try my best to answer whatever I can. Good luck with your planning!

Sarah:

i am so excited for your wedding! i'm dying to read another review about a wedding at The Royal. Are you getting married on the beach? Where will your reception be?? Are you using an outside photographer, and if so, is there a "penalty" so to speak?

Thanks! Kelly

Im getting married at Aventura Spa Resort as well. I have not been there but my mother has. She absolutly loved it there. Everything about it seems amazing. I picked it by reading trip advisor reviews and looking at pictures. I think it had a perfect rating on trip advisor. There arent any bad reviews.

 

 

Also the whole staff seems to be great so far. They have many options you can choose from to make the day your own and you also have the choice to bring your own materials at no extra cost. This is what I probably will do to cut some costs.

 

If you need any information on the resort let me know I have all the menus and options. Just pm me with any questions.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
