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!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
