Hi RR,

We are not doing a site visit either. Its already going to cost us about $6000 just for our wedding and two weeks vacation, I dont want to add another cost for a site visit. We are also going to Playa Del Carmen, and based on the reviews, Im not worried. I think so long as you are organized on your end, things should go smoothly.

We are getting married at the resort you are looking at, The Royal. And although I wish I could do a site visit, I am not. And I am completely confident after finding BDW and talking to all the other Royal brides that everything will be perfect!

Not doing a site visit, either.

 

Hey RR, i was actually planning on doing the same things as you - catholic ceremony in a church and then staying at/doing the reception at gran porto. i ultimately decided on dreams tulum, partly because they do have a chapel on resort grounds.

 

has it been difficult making reservations at the church on fifth ave? i've heard response time is not great, esp. if you don't speak spanish.

My fiance really wanted to do a site visit. I told him that I didn't want to go to the same place twice. I wanted to get married somewhere where I'd never been before. Makes it very exciting. I relied on the forum, the internet, reviews and my TA to choose the right place. I am confident in the resort. :)

I have heard that before as well, that the church on 5th is not great at getting right back to people. I can absolutely see this happening since they are a church, not a wedding coordinator, and they're probably not 100% focused on jumping at the beck and call of a bunch of Destination Brides! wink.gif

It was mainly because of this reason I have decided to go with Ajua Wedding Planners. They work with that church all the time and do all the running to and from the church for you. I pictured this (communication/planning with the church) as being my biggest stressor for the next year and a half, so decided to get helped lined up before it got to that point.

Dear Rachel congrats on your engagment and welcome to the forum playa del carmen is a really nice palce for your wedding here you will find good tips for your wedding.

Beach Weddings are the most popular of all locations for a Destination marriage ceremony and Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya are the hot spot.There are lots of Mayan ruins and great attractions to visit

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
