Thanks Taryn!!  I know that time will fly by very fast.

 

On a side note, doe anyone have any family members or friends that are threatening not to go because of the recent violence in Mexico?  If so, whata re you saying to reassure them?  I am having this problem and I have let them know that the resort is safe and secure yet they still aren't listening.  It os really starting to bum me out.

Oh no!!  My family makes little comments about it, but none of them have threatened not to come.  It sounds like you have done all you can to reassure them?  I have said the same as you...that we are in a very nice resort that is guaranteed to be safe, not the mention that almost all of the violence that has been happening is no where near our resort.  Right??

I had a couple aunts/uncles that wouldn't come to our wedding due to the "violence". I told them to read the news- it's not affecting that area like it is the border cities. They never did come- I still think it's just a cop-out so they don't have to spend the money.. It was a bummer they didn't show, but we still had a great time!

I have heard a few grumblings about it and I try to be understanding because they really are concerned. They hear what's "going on in Mexico" and think we are going to be right in the middle of it or something. I tell them to do a little research and they will see that if they are smart - i.e., don't walk through an alley in the middle of town alone at night - they will see there is nothing to worry about. For those who say they have heard travel agents are advising against travel to Mexico, I tell them about my travel agent who visited Riviera Maya last month with her husband and 3 year-old. Our informed guests are not concerned at all. 

 

Good luck ladies! I really hope nobody cancels for that reason.

Aventura has two sides - the Cove side which allows kids and the Spa side which is adults only.  Its a great option.

Hey ladies.  So I am starting to freak out.  I already have my hotel rooms reserved with my travel agent and started looking for flights since they just came out.  Well a few others have looked online and found package deals for cheaper than if they booked separately.  They want to do that if they do that totally screws up my group booking.  I wanted the best possible pricing for me and my guests and I don't think I got it.  I know package deals are always better but its a "get while you can" kind of thing.  I am really getting worried.  I sent the info I found to my travel agent but I don't think there is anything she can do.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
