Resort of my choice or resort that everyone can afford???
Posted 04 October 2008 - 01:18 PM
I need some advice from you ladies. I am trying to decide between a few resorts in Riviera Maya for my wedding in 2009. I am crazy about the Secrets Maroma but the prices that I was quoted are a bit out of my peoples budgets. So I am stuck between having people telling me to get married in a place of my choice and have some guests stay at other hotels. Some people are telling me that I need to take my guests monetary positions in mind and go with resorts where everyone can be together. What is the proper etiquette in this case? I am so confused.
HELP ME PLEASE!!!

it was very important for all of us to stay at the same hotel. to avoid having guests stay elsewhere, i picked a less expensive hotel. i just did a lot of research to make sure i found a place that i loved that wasn't expensive. if it was just the two of us going, i probably would have picked a fancier place, but i really loved our hotel.
my favorite part of a DW was all being at the hotel together. it was so much fun!! when we'd head to the buffet, we'd just ask for a big table and people would join us. it was awesome my family, his family & our friends spending time together. we live out of state & never had the opportunity for a get together like this. it was also nice for the guests that on the wedding day they could just walk on over & then head back to their rooms to freshen up before dinner.
what about moving to secrets after your wedding for a honeymoon?

You may want to make a list of pros and cons for each resort for a)your desires, your MUST-HAVES, c) pricing, d)what you envision your guests enjoying most about each resort, etc etc etc and see where the hammer falls.
I know it's a tough decision!

And might I add that it isn't the end of the world if your guests don't all stay at the same resort. They'll still be at the wedding which is the point of the trip

We looked at a resort for kids but was still good. Now the kids aren't coming and if they are they are staying another hotel!! Gutted I'd have picked a more plush hotel if I'd known that lol
You can't rely on guests they might not make it anyway and some people will make an excuse no matter what so do what you want to do
