Im from the UK and need help please...

Recommended Posts

Hey My name is Kim and I got engaged last month.I ve always wanted to get married abroad and we have decided on Mexico.

We dont know what time of year to go as we want it to be good weather as itll be most of my families main holiday for the year.

We are also having trouble choosing a hotel as I of course love The Royal Playa Del Carmen but its adults only and we have two children under 3yrs in our group. Any help or thoughts will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Congrats and Welcome. You will enjoy this forum. Not sure what part of Mexico you are looking into, but I went to Cabo San Lucas last year and stayed at Riu Palace, and loved the resort.

Hi Kim, congrats on your engagement! I'm partial to the Dreams resorts, they are all inclusive and tend to be more family oriented. I know that Dreams Cancun has an Explorer's Club for the kids during the day, maybe they all have something similar. You'll find plenty of information on this forum though, happy planning!

Welcome to the forum Kim, the Royal has a sister resort called the Gran Porto Real right across the street that allows children and is more family friendly. The WC and packages are the same and regardless of which resort you have the wedding at people from both resorts are able to attend. Also as for time of year I chose May simply because it's right in off season between spring breakers and when the rains start and it gets super humid. I believe it's pretty calm during the middle to late January as well.

Hi Kim, welcome to the forum! We chose Dreams Puerto Vallarta, which is an all-inclusive that is family-friendly for the same reasons - there will be kids coming. I've been to PV and love the city, the Malecon (boardwalk by the ocean) and the mountains. There's a lot to do besides just lounge at the resort & that was one of the deciding factors for us. When choosing a hotel I always check tripadvisor.com and Dreams had a ton of good reviews there as well as on this forum.

We also chose May b/c it's less expensive than, say, January.

 

I would check out the sub-forums on the different areas of Mexico and do a little research on a few areas of the country. Also think about what your/your guests priorities are. Do you want to see the Mayan ruins? Be near a town or more isolated? Hopefully that should help you figure out where you want to go. Also enlisting the help of a travel agent is always a good idea!

Good luck!!

Felicidades and welcome to the forum!! Dreams PV is a nice all-inclusive that includes kids :). The best time in PV would be from Nov-middle of May .... and, honestly, the best best time would be Feb/March time period - awesome weather :).

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
