Hello! Any El Cid Spa & Beach Resort in Riviera Maya Brides??
Posted 05 October 2009 - 12:24 PM
I am a newbie and I am in the initial stages of finding a resort. Were leaning towards El Cid Spa & Beach resort in Riviera Maya. Has anyone stayed or held their wedding at this resort? If so, I really would appreciate any information you can provided me so I can make a decision.
Also, please let me know of any other resorts that meet the following:
1: Reasonable prices
2: All inclusive
3: Children are allowed
Were planning on doing a site visit, but were not positive yet so any resort suggestions are welcomed.
We were initially planning for a wedding in June 2010 however we have moved the date to June 2011. This will allow us to be in a better financial position to have a destination wedding and a reception when we return. I have mentioned our plans to several family members who have indicated they donâ€™t get the point of having a reception when we return. I have been told it would be like having two weddings. What do you guys think? Is it common/ok to have a reception after having a destination wedding? Would this be overkill?

FI and I are basically having 3 weddings. It is your day and you choose how you want to do things. Your family will get over it, we have all been there. No worries!!!

I actually did a site visit at El Cid 1.5 years ago. Its a nice resort but in the lobby it felt kinda like a casino and seemed to have an older vibe...thats just my opinion though! I remember it was reasonably priced and not to huge

Eva (el Cid's WC) has been absolutely wonderful. She have been helping me work out all of the details and has been been on the ball about everything.
I only hope the ceremony goes as well as all the planning has gone, and I am confident that it will.
The rooms were reasonably priced for our guests as well. We went through destinationweddings.com to book the package and coordinate travel for everyone.

Welcome to the forum. I think it's perfectly fine to have an at home reception, especially if not everybody is able to make it out to the destination wedding. It doesn't have to be a big formal wedding reception (although it could be if you wanted to ) but I think it's a great way to celebrate with people who couldn't make it to the DW.

H-Town Liz - I really hope everything goes as you have planned and your day is everything you have wished for. I have also read and seen video's with really good reviews however I have not been able to find many pictures of the wedding setup and decorations. Did the resort provide you with this after you confirmed your reservation.
I am also using destinationweddings.com, my wc is Judy.
