Hi. Aruba, Grand Cayman or Mexico?

Recommended Posts

Hi. My name is Kathie and I'm new here. I don't have a definite date picked out but we're thinking October/November 2010 either in Cayman, Aruba or Mexico. That's one of the reasons I joined this forum. I'm trying to get as much information as possible. My fiance and I are traveling to Puerto Vallarta this October and next March we will be going to Aruba to check out possibilities.

 

This is my second marriage. I am 51 and want to have a nice wedding but nothing elaborate. We will probably be having 25-35 guests. Any one have any ideas, budgets they want to share? Thanks, Kathie

Welcome. You'll find tons of info about mexico on this forum. I can't recall any aruba or cayman brides, but I may have missed it.

 

I know some people have said they were first interested in aruba, but it was too expensive. but, if you know it's something your guests can afford it might be a great option.

 

oct/ nov is peak hurricane season & they say aruba is below the hurribane belt. Not sure about PV. I think that side is fine, but I'm not sure. I would think caymen would be at more risk during hurricane season.

Hi Morgan and Jamaicabride09. Thanks for the welcome. I'm really looking forward to getting my plans arranged. How long did it take you both to plan your weddings? I think you're right Morgan about the hurricane season, we have to look into that a little more. Thanks!

we were engaged exactly a year. I had been lurking on the forum a few months before we got engaged & had riviera mexico decided on for the location.

 

although I spent a year, it doesn't need to take a year. I could have done it much faster if I had less time.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
