Mexico Fall 2010?? Overwhelmed already!
Posted 21 October 2009 - 01:50 PM
Likes some other brides who I have read about on here I fell into the destinationwedding.com trap. I paid my $50 and the assigned planner didn't really seem to listen to me and made me feel that with my budget I didn't have many options. She kept sending me links to hotels that we either not in the area we were looking, out of our budget or specifically not something we were interested in. When I asked her questions about resorts she had not suggested I received rather gruff emails as to why "her brides" don't want that. We then put the whole idea aside for a while thinking we just couldn't make it work.
I found this forum a few days ago and it really got me excited about the whole idea again! Based on everyone's really helpful messages I feel this is something we could do!
Here is what we are trying to find:
-4 star all-inclusive resort on the Yucatan peninsula
-we don't want our guests to have to pay more than $300 a night
-lots of food options, hopefully some of which can be healthy (I have seen some locations that only have 3 or 4 places and don't seem that nice)
-the jury is still out on adults only vs. kids. We are hoping to do without, but we do have a special needs child in the immediate family so that is making this decision harder
Things I don't care about:
-flowers/decorations (these locations seem beautiful enough with the sun and sea!)
-DJ (we will use an ipod)
-no bridal party (We will just be happy if our closest friends can be there)
Things I am concerned about:
-good quality photos
-not feeding my guests crappy fried food
-not getting too stressed out!
Would love to hear any thoughts people have!

Dreams is also under $300 per night and from what I have read the food sounds excellent. If you do want to have adult only you can look into Secrets which is from the same company as Dreams just a little more expensive (which is why I decided on Dreams).
Good luck and welcome to the forum. It has helped me a TON just from reading posts from other people.

Unfortunately our wedding is on the other side of Mexico, so I don't have a ton of info to help you regarding choosing a hotel. However, just keep reading this forum and you will find tons of options. That is how I found my wedding location!!
Good luck and happy planning!
