Hoping to be a Riviera Maya Bride!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi All!!!

 

The big day for Steve and I is (hopefully) May 25th 2008. I have been attempting to plan a destination wedding for almost 3 weeks and I am finding it more and more difficult to get anywhere. I have my heat set on the Occidental Grand Xcaret but I can't seem to get anyone on the phone there. Suggestions, advice, and words of wisdom would be GREATLY appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Galit

Hey Galit, welcome to the forum!! welcome3.gif

 

I don't have any fantastic advice for you, except to maybe use a Travel Agent? :-| Sorry... I'm not sure how difficult it normally is to reach them. It's so frustrating though, isn't it?!

 

Also, have you tried e-mailing them? For some reason, I find when I e-mail them I tend to get more responses... I think it's because they can contact me whenever they feel like it, and they're not obligated to drop everything they're doing right then and there to talk to me on the phone.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I am SO excited to have found this forum - there is so much helpful advice here :) Unfortunately, as Adamsgrrl noted, the Xcaret's email system is not very good. Most of the emails just get returned. I am just so excited to plan this wedding already... I really want someone to call me back!

I would agree with both emailing as well as getting a TA to help you set everything up. Do you have a Travel Agent yet? It can be really nice because whenever your guests have questions they can talk to the TA instead of you!

 

Anyways, welcome! There is so much information on here and the ladies are very willing to help and share. :)

Welcome! It does stink that the response time for places is slow. I think that resort is beautiful though and I bet you'll be really happy if you stick it out!

Hello & welcome3.gif! I would also highly recommend using a Travel Agent. My travel plans have simplified enormously since I started working with my travel agent. I am DEFINITELY a Type A person, and it was hard to just give up the control and let her do her thing, but it is such a relief to just worry about the event itself!!! rolleyes.gif

Steve (my soon to be hubby smile159.gif) is already in touch with the "group rates" person from the Xcaret trying to coordinate a package deal for all our guests (my inlaws are insisting on paying for every single guest). We are just waiting for a final package. My job is to figure out the airfare and I have NO idea where to start. Do I get a TA to just coordinate the airfare for our guests? Does anyone know how that works as far as using multiple airlines, group discounts, etc?

    • 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.
