is anyone else out there scared of the flu that is kicking around? it is a second marriage for us both and i have a 8 year old from my preivous marriage so the resort we pick must be kid friendly - but i dont want it to be too kid orienated either so that the guests who are coming with us wont be bored.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I would hope that the swine flu will be long gone my November. So I wouldn't worry about that. Congrats on your upcoming wedding

Hello,

I just joined too. We are also planning to have our wedding in Mexico- in Dec 09. While we are holding off booking right now mostly because we know it would make some of our guests uncomfortable to put down a deposit at the moment we are still planning to have it there. Realistically if you look at the other recent pandemic scares (sars, avian flu) none of them lasted 8 months and by the sounds of it they are taking all the precautions they can right now in Mexico to make sure it doesn't spread. So hopefully they're able to nip it in the bud before more people get sick (same goes for Canada or we're in trouble too)!

Sorry I'm no help with the resorts. The only one I've been to and where we're getting married (Catalonia Royal Tulum) is an adults-only. Good luck with your search, don't stress!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

 

I'm getting married in Mexico in October and we're still going ahead with our plans. There's been NO documented cases in the Riviera Maya (where our wedding is) but there HAS been documented cases where we live. We had planned on sending out our invitations this past week but are holing off for a few weeks until the hype dies down because we didn't want everyone to reply "no" right away. If it's something that really concerns you, you have plenty of time to change your location.

 

Where in Mexico are you thinking of getting married in? Forum members should be able to give you some resort suggestions that fit your requirements!

Hello, and welcome! I, too, am a November bride. I'm not worrying about the flu at all. While it may be a cause for concern, it's not a cause for panic, and I'm optimistic that by November it will be a distant memory!

As for kid friendly resorts, I've only ever been to an adults-only resort, El Dorado Seaside which is part of the Karisma chain. They do have a few family friendly resorts called Azul Beach and Azul Sensatori. If the service is the same at the Azul resorts as it was at the El Dorado resorts, you would have nothing to worry about!

Good luck and happy planning!

I was supposed to be in the Mayan on Monday for my wedding, and one of my bridesmaids Aunts lives there. We were in contact with her and she said she literally wasn't hearing anything about it. I think most of the hype is coming from the government and I am sure by November it will be smooth sailing! We were supposed to stay at the Barcelo and we've had friends that stayed there, they said it was great, at least something to look into. It's quite large and there seems like there's lots to do!

Best of luck with your wedding planning!

I'm still having my wedding in the MR in February but like other brides, I'm waiting for the hype to settle down before booking.

 

As for kid friendly resorts that are still fun for everyone else - I've stayed at the Barcelo and the Bahia Principe and both are very big with lots to do. Both also have a discotheque for those who want to go dancing.

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
