HELP....a little flustered

Recommended Posts

Lately I feel like I am new! lol

Who knew that planning the biggest day of your life would make you so crazy. I thought it was going to be a breeze and really fun doing the destination wedding. We want to go somewhere fun, beautiful, and not to expensive for our guest (we would like to stay at a really nice hotel since it is our big day) and also somewhere that kids are welcome....not too much to ask for.

We started out looking at the Mayan Riveira at the Riu resorts because we heard that they are amazing and the Mayan has LOTS to do but now we are affraid that it might turn out to be too much for our guest and might change to a cheeper place.

Our wedding day isnt till 2010 (we were thinking April) so we cant get an idea of prices because they arnt out yet and wont be for some time.

Anyone have any suggestions on a nice resort they got married at and how much it cost them?

 

Thanks Ladies :)

Welcome to the forum! Its okay to feel overwhelemed, almost everyone feels like this when they are starting out.

 

How about Dreams Cancun or Dreams Tulum? They are both all-inclusive and family friendly. I'm not sure about pricing, it may actually be along the lines of the RIU.

 

Or how about Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta? It is absolutely beautiful and a lot of girls have had beautiful, weddings there that weren't crazy expensive.

Welcome to the forum! The good thing is you have plenty of time. The bad thing is you probably can't finalize anything because its 2010. Good luck.

Azul Sensatori is a great all-inclusive in the Riviera Maya, and has an adults only section and a family friendly section all at the same resort. It's brand new and isn't finished yet, but definitely give it a look. Happy planning!

Welcome!!! Don't worry about being over-whelmed! It's all a little crazy in the beginning! Once you get the booking off your chest, you can actually start having FUN planning!!!! Of course there are a lot of great hotels, but I'll go ahead and give you my recommendation too! We're getting married and staying at the Barcelo Maya Palace (Riviera Maya) It's a great price, a beautiful all-inclusive hotel, and is definetely kid friendly. They have a mini kid water park too! I have lots of pictures of everything from the food to the rooms, to a wedding taking place. PM me if you are interested!

I'm feeling the same way. I'm looking for the same thing, affordability for my guests, fun, etc. and planning for 2010 and already feel overwhelmed. I just want to book the resort and hopefully I can sleep again. Good luck to both of us. :)

Welcome to the forum! Even though your wedding is in 2010 you can still probably get a rough idea on cost. If you feel certain places are way too much right now then they will deffinately be more by then. It would be a good way to eliminate. Best of luck with the planning!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
