    Hi all,
    Hoping you can offer some advice. My tentative plan is to be married at the ERC in April 09 and I understand and enjoy the fact that its an adult only resort. However, I have a 3 yr old niece that will need to travel with my sister and BIL. My TA will make arrangements for them to stay in the nearby Paradisus. I've been researching this issue on the boards and from what I've come across, my niece will only be permitted on the beach, not the resort. I'm willing to have the dinner on the beach but I've read you must have 50 guests to do that. I'll only have about ten. Is that true? Also, heaven forbid, bad weather, then what? Will she really be banned from entering the resort? Any thoughts, advice, suggestions, etc will be greatly appreciated. Erika

      We ended up passing on a resort in Jamaica that we LOVED because it was adults only and we will be having a 10 year old attend. We decided it was too much to risk the resort not allowing him to attend the wedding. We figured we can always visit the resort in Jamaica on a future vacation, but that we needed to find a resort that, to the best of our ability, met the needs of our guests.

        I was afraid someone was going to say that. I'd hate to go back to the drawing board. I am just so picky and this seemed to be one of the few resorts that everyone loves, on trip advisor, on this site, etc. Do hotels/resorts (specifically Paradisus) offer babysitting services where the parents can leave the resort? I'm trying to think of every option before dismissing ERC as an option. Thanx again. All input is appreciated.

          I completely understand!

          Maybe try the Azul resorts for the wedding and go to ERC for the honeymoon. Azul resorts are getting very favorable reviews!

            That's a good thought! I know that the Dreams Resort we're getting married at offers some level of babysitting services. I would definitely check on that option before you change your plans.

            Our youngster is my fiance's youngest brother, so it wasn't an option for us to have him miss the wedding.

                Thanks for that idea. I'm gonna check out the website right now. I asked the TA to look into it yesterday but I have yet to hear back from her. You know what they say, if you need something done.......

                  Yeah I am in exactly the same mess - big vent coming up...

                  I have an 8 year old cousin who was going to make the trip, so family vacation hotels for the week... I fell in love with the Maroma beach area, so I figure hey we can stay at Dreams Riviera Cancun and have the ceremony and our honeymoon at Secrets Maroma, with the dinner back at DRC as I too was worried about what if weather doesnt cooperate and then what..

                  So I chug along speaking to Cecilia about prices for the ceremony and I mean down to the white chiavary chairs and the microphone and speakers for the ceremony and then she sends me the contract and has a 'Surprise!' a USD 150 per person walk on fee!!! We are inviting some 50 family and then 50 friends, so if 60 people show up that is USD 7,500 just so that we can use their beach for what an hour!! We were already paying site/minister fee, cocktail hour fee, chair fee, etc. etc.

                  Have any of you come across this? and the ridiculous thing is I have been talking to Cecilia for 2 months and they only mention it now!!!!

                  Have any of you girls come up with a solution to this sort of thing?
