My name is Danielle. I am from Kamloops, BC. I am getting married somewhere in the Mayan Riviera, January 2010. It is so hard to find the right resort and at a price my guests can afford. I am looking forward to all the advice from brevious brides woot.gif

Welcome to the forum Danielle.

I was exactly where you are now about a year ago. I knew I wanted to get married in the Riviera Mayan but not sure where.

I hate to admit this but I had to buy a piece of bristol board and I wrote down the name of every resort in the Mayan. Then me and FI decided on a few details that were important to us in the resort and started crossing off the resorts that didn't fit the few needs. Eg. Want my 9yr niece and bestfriends children there so resort needed to be kid friendly, etc.

In the end, we had narrowed the list down to 7 resorts then had to start looking at the wedding details each offered and pricing from our T.A.

We have guests coming from B.C, Alberta, and Ontario and had to find a resort with reasonable costs to fit all needs. After many months,we decided on a resort that we really ove and think will also fit our guests budgets and needs. Really though, in the end, it should be the resort you love:)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
