Yeah, I try not to worry however my family and friends are telling us we should change our wedding location....its stressful because our wedding is in less than a year and its also a popular wedding date (11/11/11)

Hi everyone,

 

I am also getting married in November of 2011.  We'll be getting married in Playa del Carmen---we just have to settle on the date and location! 

 

I wanted to reassure everyone who is worried about the violence in Mexico.  It truly truly is very far away from this part of Mexico.  Although I'm originaly from the Philadelphia area, I live in Merida, Mexico ( a city about 4 hours west of Cancun) and am also frequently in the Mayan Riviera area.  It really is safe here, and the problems in the border areas are not happening here, thank God.

Wow Gran Caribe is supposed to be stunning, you must be so excited. I too wanted 11/11/11 but our hotel didnt have availability. We are getting married at the Dreams Tulum on the 10th now. So just before you!

 

Have you started looking at dresses yet? I am going next week I think its going to be so much fun.

Where are you getting married?



 Thanks for trying to comfort me :) We're getting married at Gran Caribe Real. How about you?

We are also a 11~11~11 DW at El Dorado Royale!

We just booked our room and flights this week! Excellent airfare sell going on by the way this week! Also, after checking in with the resort we found out it is starting to book up due to the popular wedding date! Something to think about!! We passed this info on to our guests and they are all starting to get their reservations in as well. Now that we and some of our guests have booked I'm staring to get nervous, crazy, happy, stressed, all at once! EEEEK! and I still need to go dress shopping! LOL!

    • 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!!
