Is anyone getting married at Grand Oasis Riviera Maya?

Recommended Posts

I strongly considered it as an option. They have a free wedding package and their infinity pool looks beautiful. But I just wasn't convinced about quality and service. It is rated as a 4.5 star resort by the tour operators here, and I wanted to stick to a 5 star.

 

Why are you thinking of switching resorts? I'm guessing it has to do with the lack of response from wedding coordinators? Or the travel price?

The price is the biggest decision factor for our guests. I have become quite fond of this resort, it seems a little smaller and more intimate. I also like the beach better than Dreams, soft white sand was a huge "wish" for us. Now if only I can find someone else who has been there to be as helpful as you! All those Dreams Brides are VERY lucky to have you!!

If price is such an important factor, I say go for it. Changes are you will enjoy your wedding day and be so happy about how everything went regardless of where you go. I am a perfectionist and I live for details, but honestly on my wedding day (and for my receptions) it just didn't matter anymore. You will wonder what you worried and stressed about. Honestly, looking back, I really don't understand why I was so stressed for several weeks about picking the resort. There is no such thing as a "perfect" resort. I don't know why we drive ourselves crazy thinking we have to pick the right one, when honestly, there are so many choices that would be right.

 

I mean, I am very happy with my wedding and I loved Dreams Tulum. Do I think I made the right resort choice - well honestly, no. I think I could have chosen many other resorts (pretty much any resort experienced with weddings and that didn't charge a fortune for every single little thing) and I would have been just as happy. So I made a good choice, but it doesn't mean that I made the "right" choice, because there were many other equally good choices.

 

That being said, I still think it's worth doing a little resaerch to make sure the resort you choose is up to par. I remember from researching this one that it is. It may not quite be a 5 star but it's close. All the complaints seemed to be the usual stuff you read about everywhere (food, service, etc). If the savings are big I say go for it!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
