I have decided on Playa Del Carmen but need help decided on a hotel and ceremony site.

 

We'll have about 40 people. 2 kids, one 2 and one 5. Other that that it will be adults over 30. We want a short ceremony and a nice dinner. I do not need a hall, a dj, etc. I want to keep things very simple.

I also have decided on the Mayan riviera and would like to be married at the end of March. Really like the look of thr Royal porto real and also El dorado royale. Does anyone know much about these resorts? Also am I leaving it a bit late to book for next year? Would be grateful for any info!

I have just booked the Allegro Playacar. This resort was by far not our first choice, but I am happy with the smaller, quaint resort. We are getting married in January 2007 (just booked 2 weeks ago!).

 

I was the most happy with the Grand Palladium in the Riviera, however, they fill up fast on wedding dates and times available.

 

If I can give any advice, it would be to make sure your travel agent checks on the wedding dates available. Ours didn't and got everyone's hopes up on the 5 star hotel. Most were crushed to find out that we are now at a 3 star and paying the same price!

 

Best of luck!

I am getting married at the Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort on March 3, 2007. So far, I am happy with the service. Our main concern is our guests. The Moon Palace is not the cheapest place to stay and is located by itself. We're looking for alternative hotels for our guests that's less costly.

I am getting married in the Rivier Maya for sure and almost positive that it will be at the Occidental Grand Xcaret resort. We are planning on sending out about 50 invites and hoping that only 30ish will end up comming.

 

When I first came on to this site I was set on a Cabo wedding but recently have made my mind up on the Riviera. The one thing I have really learned from the Cabo brides though is that they are eachothers best source of information. If all of us Cancun/PDC/Riviera brides start posting the little bits of info we find I think we will be in good shape.

 

Baconnic - I'll keep my eye out for resorts that sound like they would fit your wedding needs. are you thinking All Inclusive or not?

 

Weez - Both the Royal and the El Dorado seem like really nice spots to have a wedding and there is a ton of information about them floating around on the internet. I think there is a couple posts about these two resorts on this forum allready. If I come across any info on them I'll be sure to post it.

 

Valerie - I am so excited that you are having a weeding at an Occidental Resort. I am very interested to see how well the Occidental resorts handle their weddings.

Finally decided on the ElDorado (yay!) , and got my wedding date (24th March) so am really relieved that I don't have to stress about that anymore!! Only have around 15 to 20 people going and want to keep it as low key as possible, but am already seeing how easy it would be for the budget to go out of the window! Trying to stay on track!! lol!!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
