Best three AI for Wedding in RM

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - I'll be traveling to RM next week and will be visiting some AIs as potential ceremony and reception sites (plus guest rooms) for a wedding in August 2009. (I know, I am sooo late...but I a work full time AND go to grad school at night...it's tough). I've received a few AI recommendations from friends/colleagues/family that have visited for vacation but no reco's for weddings. So, I decided to check with the experts...YOU!

-Can you please advise which 3 resorts are best for a beautiful, sophisticated ceremony and reception?

Do any of the resorts offer other ceremony venues besides the beach?

 

We are expecting ~85ppl and want everyone to feel welcome and have fun.

 

Any feedback is GREATLY appreciated!

Julie

I got married at the Dreams Cancun, I would highly recommend it. Plus it sounds like you are pretty busy. You could almost get away with planning all the wedding details when you arrive beofre the wedding.

 

Good Luck!

I attended a wedding at The Royal in Playa del Carmen. This is an adults only AI though. Our friends got married on the beach, but I am not sure of their other locations. They were supposed to have their reception on the beach, but due to weather it was moved to Pelicano's which actually turned out better. I stayed for a week and had a fabulous experience. The food and service was great! I really enjoyed that the resort was so close to town and not completely secluded. That gave us the opportunity to walk into town to enjoy restaurants, shopping and bars. I know they have a kid friendly location accross the street, but I cannot remember the name. Happy planning!

Julie-

 

Most of the big resorts offer some type of wedding package but it really all depends on what you are looking for when it comes to the details.

 

I'm being biased here but Dreams Tulum was over the top fantastic! I would really recommend any of the Dreams Resorts. They have 3 standard packages that you can choose from and then add on pretty much what ever you want. Their service is impecable and I would almost go as far to say that "No" is not in their vocabulary.

 

There is a Dreams in Cancun, Puerto Aventuras & Tulum right now.

 

I have also heard great things about the Paridisus resorts as well.

 

Good luck and let us know what you decide when you get back

Thank you for the recommendations! I will start checking into them now. Hopefully we can visit Secrets Capri, El Dorado, The Royal, and Dreams. BTW - We are planning a wedding for adults only (and 1 13yr old cousin that will stay at another resort with her parents, if necessary).

 

Also, can you recomend any wedding planners for RM or are the WC at the hotels sufficient?

I visited about 6 resorts in late September-- My top 3(in order) were Barcelo maya, Paradisius, and Dreams Tulum. We decided to go with barcelo, because it has one of the best beaches around, and it still has that "mexican" feel to it, with the open air huts, etc. Good luck!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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!
