Wedding with Children

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out the best destination for a wedding that includes three kids (16, 10 and eight) as well as our parents and siblings. We'd like to find an all-inclusive possibly, but open to other ideas as well. We definitely love snorkelling so that's a must.

 

Ideally, we'd like to have the family there for 3-4 days, and then we would finish out the week by ourselves...not sure if this is an option or not.

 

Any suggestions and feedback would definitely be appreciated.

Thank you!!!

Welcome to the forum! The Dreams resorts offer a lot for different age appropriate options. Our wedding was at Dreams Puerto Vallarta and the brother in law was married at Dreams Cancun. Both weddings were a blast and had kids ranging from 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 13, 17, a bunch of guests in their late 20s/30s and even adults up to 80! Happy planning :)

Check out Vecinos in Cabarete DR - excellent choice for a small intimate family wedding - and minutes from a very popular snorkeling beach at Sosua. Lots of other family-friendly activities and attractions in the area too - might just be a great fit.

Best of luck with your planning and enjoy the process........Lynda :)

We are going with the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum as we have had some friends married there and they are great things for kids. We'll have kids there from age 18 months to 10)

 

In terms of your guests going for only 3-4 days and you and your FI staying the 7...check out the price difference with your travel agent...when we starting at looking at places to have ours it turned out the4 day package was just as much as the 7 day and when you factor that you are travelling on your first and last day it turned out not to be worth it to book 4 day packages for our guests....at least for us anyway. Not sure if any other ladies have run into the same thing!

 

Congrats though and happy planning!

Welcome! There are TONS of resorts that are appropriate for weddings and family members of all ages. You need to narrow down the destination first, and once you've chosen that, start researching the actual resorts. You'll see forums on here dedicated to all of the different regions. Have a look through to get info on the areas, and if you're still having trouble deciding I would engage the help of one of the travel agents associated with this site (see banner ads at the top of your screen). They're specialists in destination weddings that can help you make a decision. Good luck and happy planning!

Congratulations! My FI and I also wanted to have a few days in Mexico on our own. We found that a lot of our guests want to stay for a full 7 days, so we decided to change hotels for the last 3 days. This may end up being a little bit more expensive, but I think it will be worth it to have some total relaxation and our guests can stay as long as they would like.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
