November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

Okay, I searched around and didn't see one of these...apologies if I missed one. I thought it would be great to have a thread for those planning on getting married in Nov. 2011.

 

So post your dates and locations and anything else! I'm sure there will be more November 2011 people in a few months, but there must be a few of us on here now!

We will get married on November 11, 2011, but we're still in the process of choosing a resort. We're probably inviting around 80-90 people with no idea of how many are coming. After lots of planning complications, we decided to fly in our own rabbi and priest, so we can have a joint ceremony.

 

Unlike most folks, we'd rather do an indoor (or at least covered, off the beach) ceremony and reception. We figure we'll get plenty of gorgeous beach time during the rest of our stay in Mexico. =)

 

I mentioned this on in the newbie area, but the resorts we're considering are:

 

Gran Caribe Real

Sandos Playacar/Caracol Eco Resort/Riviera Beach

Barcelo Maya Beach/Costa Cancun/Tucancun Beach

Dreams Cancun/Riviera Cancun/Tulum/Puerto Aventuras

 

If anyone has thoughts on these, let me know!

We are date twins!

We decided on Iberostar because it was (a) all-inclusive (B) inexpensive and © My cousin was married there a couple years ago and everyone loved it. I have a lot of family between the US, England and Ireland, so I have people flying in from all over. It was important it was inexpensive and all-inclusive for this reason, because there are people traveling far for the wedding and we wanted to make it as affordable as possible. There are also a lot of children in my family, and it was important that they can come as well, and the Iberostar is family friendly, without being overun by children.

What resorts are you looking at?

Caitlin, I keep hearing great things about Iberostar. I'm sure you'll have a great time there!

 

We are very undecided about resorts right now. We really like Barcelo Maya Beach, Sandos Playacar, and Gran Caribe Real, but it's just all so much info to sort through! I can't wait til we get something booked...well, one of these days.

 

I'm hoping that after booking, we can take a bit of a wedding planning breather (except I won't stop looking at wedding dresses until the wedding day itself, probably)...

We are super undecided about wedding resorts too! I feel like all I do is spend hours trying to sort out the details!!! We are also considering Sandos Playcar, but I love the Grand Palladium and Gran Bahia. So we will see.

And I keep trying to not look at wedding dresses but my internetkeeps wandering so those sites. I completely understand!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
