Hello Ladies

Are any of you planning any welcome parties for your guests? If so, what is everyone doing? I am asking Ramon if we can do a private Bon Fire on the beach. Does anyone know if this is possible? I want to do something different then just a dinner inside one of the restaurants.

I'm not sure that Excellence does a bonfire. However, I know that Dreams Riviera Cancun does it and they're just next door so I suppose it's possible.

We had a welcome dinner with six people in Toscana, the food was great and Ramon handled everything beforehand for us.

 

As for a bon fire, I didn't see anything similar on the beach. They wouldn't allow sky lanterns, so I don't think they would let someone do a bon fire.

I agree. If I had about 10 people or so at the Welcome Dinner that could fit in one of the rooms then I'd have it there.

I was just advised that i can have fire pits on the beach and have appetizers and cocktails served. I'm just waiting on them to get back to me with pricing if i need to pay extra for this. Let me know if anyone else is interested and i'll share the info once received.

Has anyone read one of the latest reviews on Trip advisor? It's not very positive (at all) about Ramon. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt though. However, he's been very slow in replying to emails lately. I emailed our birth certificates and apostilles to him a few weeks a go and I have not heard back form him yet. We want him to confirm that everything is fine with them as we don't want to turn up in Mexico and find out that we can't get married. We still have plenty of time, it's just that we just want to have these things sorted now so one less thing to worry about (not that we're too worried though).

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
