Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

 

Just wondering if any 2011 brides out there, who like me feel like its forever and a day away......

We are looking at booking the Riu Palace Riviera Maya hopefully for May 2011

we know we definatly want Mexico and we are just waiting on May 2011 prices to come out at our Travel agents. As soon as we get these we will most certainly be on our way to book.....

 

Who else is 2011, when and where?

How exciting :-) I wish we could afford to do a site visit before hand, only travelling back and forth to Mexico from the UK isnt exactly cheap so the pennies will be being saved for the wedding.

Its very exciting isnt it :-)

You will have to let us know how your visit goes and which way you make your decission. I think is so much fun knowing were having a DW but its quite frustrating waiting for prices / queriesanswered before getting it booked.

I just cant wait to actually say We've booked :-) It will feel 10 time more real then i think.

Good luck and wishing you all the best too x

Hey another 2011 bride here!! We're getting married January 31st 2011, but we're going to get married in Puerto Vallarta. We're honeymooning in Riviera Maya, though.

 

We, too, are waiting for prices for 2011 to come out...I'm on pins and needles! My travel agent said she hopes to have some prices for me by next week, so we'll see.

 

I haven't decided on a venue yet...it's probably between Dreams PV and Vallarta Palace. I think the deciding factor will be the prices :)

 

Best of luck to you in your planning!! This is all very exciting, isn't ithuh.gif

Another 2011 bride here! We're planning for mid-may, hopefully May 14th 2011. Everyone keeps telling me how fast your engagement goes, so I guess we're all not planning that far in advace wink.gif

 

My fiance and I are actually going on vacation to mexico in 2 weeks!! My hopes are set on the resort we are staying at for our wedding location, but we are also checking out another resort which allows kids. My fiance has 3 cousins that will all be 12 and under when we get married, so we haven't completely decided what to do with adults only vs. family friendly...

 

Hopefully we will have decided the wedding resort once our upcoming vacation is over. We'll be looking at Dreams Riviera Cancun and staying at the Valentin Imperial Maya, so if anyone wants advice about these two resorts, ask me after February 6th!

 

Is anyone considering family friendly places for their wedding? After reading trip advisor reviews and this forum until my eyes are bloodshot, it seems like the adults only places offer a bit more in terms of luxury. We're also planning for 50-60 guests (maybe more?) so its seems a shame to pick a family friendly place for 3 kids... but hopefully we'll have a more soild idea of what to do after visiting the different resorts.

Hi 2011 bride here as well!!

Congrats & welcome!!! My Date is not official but we're looking at 10/8/2011 either at Dreams Tulum or Aruba Marriot Resort in Aruba. I've been to Aruba & I LOVED it!! I've been to Mexico but not in Tulum. I've heard great things about Tulum & about how beautiful it is. I think Tulum will be more economical. I'm traveling to Tulum this spring to see for myself. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
