So New...I dont know where to start...Literally

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone!!! I figuered the best way to do this was to JUMP right in! I am newly engaged and our "unofficial" wedding date is September 10, 2011! We really want to do a destination wedding but I am sure alot of you can relate that we are extremely budget conscience. And we need to get the best bang for our buck!

 

We started looking at Cancun because we love Mexico and I cannot get away from the Dreams Resort Cancun. It looks amazing! Although I need to keep researching for other resorts and locations!

 

I am excited to read reviews and see actual footage of hotels to help make my decision! If anyone is reading this, I am also open to suggestions so fire away!!

Welcome!!

I'm pretty new to this site as well, but in the few days I've been on here reading posts and checking out pictures I feel a lot better about picking a resort to get married at! I've gone from not being sure on the location, to being ready to book the place! It's exciting and the people on this forum are so willing to help and give information.

Good luck with your plans and congrats on your engagement :)

Congrats and Welcome!

 

You sound a lot like me, I was set on the Dreams resorts, and after a lot of research picked one of them! :)

 

I suggest reading some different wedding reviews to get an idea, as well as checking what kind of wedding packages are offered for the different resorts! At least you've got it narrowed down to one area, that's the first step really!

 

Good luck!

Welcome to the forum! :)

 

There is a ton of information here on Mexico resorts, especially Dreams!! When I was planning, I found other member's reviews of the resorts to be the most help; you get to see pictures they've taken and here first-hand how their experience was!

 

Enjoy the planning process... anticipation is half the fun!! wink.gif

You sound like me also. We are still deciding on a destination. I have gone back and forth on so many different venues, places, my FI is just leaving it to me to weed out all the unmentionables cause he cannot keep up anymore. This forum is a very good place to be when you don't know where to begin. A lot of the ladies on here have a lot of experience in planning a DW and all are very helpful.

 

Happy planning!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
