Hi everyone,


My name is Jen and though I've been lurking for a few months now, I just joined the community. My fiance Matt and I really want a destination wedding, most likely in Mexico due to its budget friendliness and proximity (we live in California's Bay Area). However, we're having a hard time finding locations because it seems as though everything is either a huge, all-inclusive resort (not so much our style) or very expensive.


We're thinking of getting married sometime next May or June and I really look forward to sharing ideas with you all!


- Jen

Hello Jen. Welcome to the forum! Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa are definitely a becoming more popular destinations for weddings... there are many beautiful new, and established, boutique hotels as well as medium sized resort hotels. Troncones is near Zihua-Ixtapa but is much less developed and super laid back. I hope you have a successful planning experience and are able to find vendors you require to make your day amazing! Happy to help.

Hi Jen, welcome to the forum. You will find lots of useful information here to help you make decisions about location, venue, and everything else in between.


Like you, my fiance and I wanted to get married in Mexico but wanted to find a location that is intimate and not filled with mega-resorts. Have you considered any particular region in Mexico (baja, cabo, mayan riviera, etc) yet?

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
