Ok... This is probably a really silly question...

Recommended Posts

Is Cancun in the Riviera Maya?

 

I want to put Riviera Maya on my STDs and Invites... because it sounds more romantic than Cancun (which reminds me of MTV spring break). Just want to make sure that it is accurate to put that on there...

 

Maybe the location in Cancun matters? I'm getting married at Moon Palace.

 

Sorry if this was just a lame-brained question. It's been a long week.

I put Riviera Maya on my STDs. We are getting married at El Dorado Royale. I would go off what the resort website says to be safe.

I'm pretty sure that the area is serviced by Cancun airport,but I agree with beth that you should go off what the resort website says so as not to confuse your guests. I don't think Cancun has a negative connotation. Unless you are holding the ceremony at Senor Frogs then I am sure your guests will look foward to a beautiful wedding wink.gif

I had a problem with that too when looking for a place. I really didn't want to put Cancun, since at one point or another, most of my friends Spring Breaked there. And I didn't want them to have those crazy memories attached to my wedding location. But I think you can totally put Riviera Maya.

I found this on wikipedia - sounds like you're good.

 

"Riviera Maya" is a tourism district following the coastal Highway 400 which parallels the Caribbean coastline of Quintana Roo, Mexico. This district historically started at at the city of Playa del Carmen and ended at the village of Tulum, although the towns of Puerto Morelos situated to the north and between Playa del Carmen and Cancun as well as the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto situated 40 km to the south of Tulum are both currently being promoted as part of the Riviera Maya tourist corridor. The Riviera Maya was originally called the Cancun - Tulum corridor, but in 1999 it was renamed as the Riviera Maya with the aid of Lic. Miguel Ramón Martín Azueta who at the time was the mayor of the municipality of Solidaridad. The municipality of Solidaridad includes the whole of the official Riviera Maya from Playa del Carmen in the north and south to Tulum and extending to some 40 km inland with the border with the state of Yucatan."

Generally, Cancun is not, to the best of my knowledge, considered the Riviera Maya. However, the Moon Palace is south of Cancun, and even if not technically part of the RM (though I would argue it is), then it's close enough for government work.

 

More importantly, if you want your stuff to say RM, they should say RM!

Sadly... I don't thinK Riviera Maya includes Cancun. Like the definition above, it starts about 40 miles south of Cancun.

Having been to both areas.....

 

If I got an invite that said 'Riviera Maya' I would think of everything south of Cancun.

 

The website says Cancun and the address for the hotel is in Cancun.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
