How do i choose the right resort?

Recommended Posts

I have choosen to get married in the mayan Riveria. April 2010. There are so many resorts to choose from. I think one of the most important things for me is I really want something somewhat private. I would like to have the ceremony, and have a private reception where we can have dinner, and then party afterwards without having to change locations too much. Ex: what Ive learned from alot of resorts so far is that they let you have 1 of the restaurants for an hour, for the reception then your on your own. I would like to avoid that. I would really like to have a seperate area from other guests where we can eat, and party all night if we choose. So if anyone has any advice, or have stayed at a resort that will accomodate, please let me know! wink.gif

I would read some of the reviews that the other brides have posted to see what you like and dislike about them. Hopefully that'll help you weed some out and pick the one that is perfect for you!

Maybe try the Valntin imperial Maya or Ceiba del Mar. I believe at Valentin you can have the restaurant for the entire night and it would be close to the chapel and also to the gazebo!

 

At Ceiba Del Mar there is a roof top patio where you can party all night long as there are no neighbors and there is an area at the other end of the resort where you can have the wedding on the beach or on the pier and reception right next to it in a plaza area. That area needs to be done at 11pm though because of the neighbors.

 

HTH!

Welcome to the forum !

 

You might also want to investigate smaller resorts / hotels, that have less rooms which means you could actually book the whole place with your guests and therefore, privatize it.

 

There are a few places that have 10-20 rooms... some of them even have like 4 rooms only... if you have more guests they could stay at another place but at least you would have the wedding place all for yourself.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
