We just got back from shooting a Wedding there.

 

I have to say, I was not impressed.

 

To be very honest, I will never understand for the life of me why you would want to have a beach Destination Wedding at a location that DOES NOT EVEN HAVE A BEACH!

 

Did we make due with it? Of course. I have no doubt the bride will love her photos but the fact it had no beach....kinda a bummer.

 

When this happens we usually just take our couples for a day after session in Tulum! Be open to these types of things if you decide to book a property with no beach.

 

Food for thought.

Example: They have this Lagoon but over those rocks, is just more rocks.

I think the brides that are getting married at Aventura are well aware of the resorts amenities, including the beach situation. I've been there 3 times before and it's a beautiful resort with wonderful service and people.

You would be surprised. Many people assume a beach resort would actually have a beach.

I think that would be an individuals own negligence for not finding out what is and is not at the resort. It's clear in the pictures and reviews what the beach situation is. And I feel like Aventura tries to promote its facilities, Spa, and Cove...not the beach.

And not every destination wedding is a BEACH destination wedding.

Since you guys are probably a little quicker in your response than the WC - do you know if you have the choice between long vs. round tables for the reception? Or does it depend on the location?

 

Thanks so much!

Depending on how many people you have, if its less than 30 id say have your reception dinner outside on the patio at Greco if its available. The food there was actually not bad at all.

Aventura Brides that have already had their wedding --

 

How did you keep in touch with your guests while you were there? Were there phones in the rooms that would connect to other rooms? I don't want to lose anyone! haha

We gave everyone a list of the rooms our guests were staying in. It was a page in thier welcome book. That way everyone knew where to get a hold of people. The room phones call room to room. Also the front desk will connect you to any room if you tell them the name.

does any have recommendations on the buffet for the private function?? We're trying to decide the menu now and was wondering if anyone had experience with any of the choices.

Thanks!
