smile125.gif I'm still deciding on a place. I want something AI that allows kids but is contemporary. Since most of our friends don't act their age I want a place that also has a night life. I'm thinking about either Moon Palace or Dreams Cancun. Anybody have any other suggestionshuh.gif

Both those resorts are good. Honestly every review I read on every resort always has something negative to say about the nightlife. If I were you I would check to see how close these resorts are from town. It seems the true nightlife is in town and not at the resorts! This is just from what I have read. If you are a 10-20 minutes from town then no big deal. Tell your guests that they have the option of going in to town for some good times if they arent into the nightlife at the resort.

Hi everyone!

My name is Laura and I am newly engaged for 1 month now! SO EXCITED and yet getting overwhelmed on the planning aspect. We want to get married this summer (2007) in Cancun or Riviera Maya. I've researched a lot of the resorts in this area and all look beautiful. We are planning for about 75 people, both adults and children. Does anyone have any suggestions on all inclusive resorts that let children stay and will be wonderful for a wedding? P.S. - I love this website! What a great network and resource! :-)

After doing TONS of online research, we chose the Riu Palace Mexico. They do allow children. Some of the reasons why we chose it: price for guests was reasonable, beautiful beach, allows children, amenities, close to golf, all-inclusive (easier for guests), proximity to Playa del Carmen, beauty of the resort, EXCELLENT reviews on tripadvisor.com and other travel websites. Another thing: our guests could choose to stay at the other (more inexpensive) Riu properties in the area. Some cons: not as intimate as we wanted, wedding and reception slightly more expensive than at some all-inclusives (not an issue for us as we were more concerned with keeping the cost down for our guests, not for us), and difficulty in getting quick response from wedding coordinator there (although I've been assured by countless other Riu brides that it all comes together beautifully in the end.) My first choice was the Azul Beach Hotel, but it was going to be too expensive for our guests to stay there. However, I also looked at almost every hotel in the Riviera Maya and the Riu was the best fit for us. Congratulations and good luck in your search!

I'm getting married at Dreams Resort & Spa in Cancun, next October. I chose Dreams because I've heard that they do wonderful weddings, they allow children, the resort is not enormous, but big enough for everyone to have some privacy, & I also wanted to keep the costs down for my guests and dreams was more reasonable than a lot of the others I looked at. I have a lot of information, some of it is posted on this site, but I have more I can email you if you're interested.

I have set a date for 5/23/08 at the Catalonia Playa Maroma. I am thinking anywhere from 15-40 will show. Thought it would only be family but a ton of people have shown interest. Plus, we are going during the "low season" so it will be pretty cheap.

 

Picked resort because we have been to Maroma Beach before it and was amazing. Voted best beach by Travel Channel in the past. The resort we chose used to cater exclusively to Italians but has switched ownership. It is a 3-4 star. Went with it rather than a 5 star to may it more affordable for guests. Not sure where we will honeymoon after, maybe head over to Cozumel.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
