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!

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • 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?
