How far do you have to book? Plus waiting for the proposal anxiety!
Posted 10 June 2009 - 09:39 PM
How far in advance do most people book their resort? Is February a busy wedding month in the Mayan Riviera? I really, really want to get married in Feb 2010 for a few important reasons. I am freaking out with everyday that he doesn't ask me (inside, obviously I am not going to nag him LOL). I just don't want to have get married somewhere I don't want to just because they have the date available. Am I being silly? Is there still plenty of time to plan a Feb 2010 DW? Thinking only 30 guests MAX, probably more 15-20ish.
I have been researching and right now Dreams Tulum or Paradisius Cancun are my top picks because having somewhere very child friendly, high end and more intimate (smaller) than say the Iberostars, is the most important to me. Our daughter will be 2 yrs old and I want to go somewhere she will have fun at, plus a lot of our friends and family have kids......

When I was deciding for me it was between the two resorts Paradisus and Dream Tulum. I also have 2 small children 5yr old and 2.5 year old. At first I was leaning towards Paradisus...closer to the airport but then I decided Dreams Tulum. Probably the only reason I chose Dreams over Paradisus was it seemed a little more affordable for my guests. I am getting married in Feb 2010 and had booked the date with the resort in Feb. Hope this helps!

But yes yes yes I stressed out hardcore and had a date picked and everything before he proposed. I KNEW i wanted 11-28-09, and he proposed in March 09, and I was still able to find a resort I loved that had my date! So don't worry!
Finding a resort is the hardest part...if you know it's coming soon I would definitely contact resorts about their date availiability, and there is nothing wrong with having it ready to go when he pops the question. I came to the conclusion that I REALLY cared about the resort and the date, and if that meant jumping the gun on planning before the proposal then so be it. Nobody would ever know anyway! Good Luck!! I'm so excited for you, I can't wait to hear HOW he proposes!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the resorts I contacted still had my dates - some already had weddings that day but you have several times possible. Also remember that if you really really want a resort thre's always a way - move the date to a week day instead of the week-end for instance.
I booked my wedding planner 7 weeks before (the hotel one quit and I had to find another one) and she was available. I booked my photographer 2 months and a half before - a very talented one, not too expensive, and she was available as well as another of her colleagues. Even for the dress - I was stressing and ordered one super quickly (like, 8 days after starting to dress hunt !) but it arrived in one month !! With no rush asked ! The alterations only took 2 weeks.
The hardest part is for your guests to plan... not for you. As odd as it sounds.
So don't worry - you're still on time. I would nevertheless start dress hunting, and resort hunting, without waiting for the proposal... that way, you will be ready when it comes and you just have to press the button (for the resort - the dress could already have been ordered by thenm as it does not matter if you get married in 2010 or 2011 - you can still order it. Better in advance than too late.)
