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!

    • 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.
