Your Wedding Resort Choice and Why??
Posted 01 February 2009 - 08:17 PM
We are STILL trying to decide which resort to have our wedding!! AHHHH...
If anyone can tell me where you are getting married, or have gotten married and WHY you chose that particular resort I would be soooo appreciative!!
We are looking in The Riviera Maya and Cancun.
FYI...we are currently thinking about Aventura Palace, Playacar Palace & Club Med Cancun.

The Royal has an excellent location. It has a sister property right next door in case we have guests with families or need a cheaper alternative. Also it is one block from 5th avenue in Playa del Carmen (famous for night time entertainment and shopping) so our guests will have many options without an expensive cab ride.
I spend months reading reviews on Trip advisor and this resort ended up having everything I wanted!
Good luck in your search and use trip advisor! It was a life savor in deciding!

This resort was in the price range that we were looking for and could accommodate the number of people. Also the requirements to be married there were easy to gather. All you need is your passports and tourist cards and the passports of your 4 witnesses if you have never been married before. I’ve been reading of the horror stories from the other brides trying to fill all the requirements.
The day after we booked and finalized our resort the wedding coordinator e-mailed me. My coordinator’s name is Jazmin and she is awesome!!! I’m completely happy will everything I’ve picked by e-mail and know that it will be perfect when I get down there. Also I was able to look at the packages for the wedding on line. They have a great website.
Hope this helps! Congrats again!

1)I want a beach wedding.
2)Free excursions if you do 3+night stay, and I'd like to organize group outings (Tulum ruins, snorkeling, etc.)for our guests.
3)No need for a large reception because we are having huge AHR 4 months later. MP offers free dinner reservations for one night, and if you have enough rooms booked you get a free cocktail hour.
4)Seems to be lots of options for free activities for guests (can get into the other palace hotels even though moon palace is already huge).
5)Horse drawn carriage for bride option.
6)Pretty good reviews.
7)MP doesn't seem too close to the spring break crowd that may have an early start (getting married the first weekend of March).

I have read rave reviews about Dreams on this website and all of the pictures and brochures look stunning! Plus, it was really important to me to be able to have my reception right on the bach. Dreams sets everything up on the beach including a dance floor. I just figured that since I was having a destination wedding, I'd like it to be as unique as possible.
I love that it is all inclusive so the guests only have to worry about cost at the time of booking. The rates offered are very reasonable and I have found that a lot more people are coming to the wedding than we originally anticipated becuase of affordability.
It's a tough decision to make especially when you are doing it rather blindly. It's scary to plan a wedding at a place you have never seen, but this website helped me a ton. Good luck and happy planning!
