Mexico or Jamaica? Destination Wedding 3-11-11

Recommended Posts

Hello, we're starting our research now. We know Jamaica is great as we've been there before. We also know Mexico is cheaper but also has more restrictions (bloodwork, days before, etc..). Can anyone recommend some great all-inclusives in Mexico and/or Jamaica? Earlier this year I was looking into Iberostar Suites and Gran Bahia Principe in Jamaica and a few in Mexico. What are your thoughts?

 

Also, price is a huge factor. We plan to have no more than 20 guests as well. Looking for a great wedding package.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to the forum. I honestly cannot help you choose a destination because I am still on the fence about mine. But there are two very good threads going one on Mexico and the other on Jamaica, so you can find out a lot of information about both destinations on these threads. Good luck and happy planning

I am torn as well. I am looking into Moon Palace Resorts in Mexico (leaning towards) and Secrets in Jamaica. Moon Palace does offer a free dinner if you have 20 rooms books or a free cocktail hour with 10 rooms booked. I would love to have many guests so I think I can qualify for the free private events (many) for 25 rooms. This will help with cost because I won't have to worry about paying $75 per extra person and I can invite who I want. Jamaica Secrets is soo my style. I love it! There are a few hiccups I see in reviews but I am sure it will be okay by March 2011.

Congrats and Welcome! I of course am partial to Jamaica - it's my favorite island - period. But I'm not doing all inclusive - we're doing private villas. So can't help you there. But things to consider that might help others help you - what are you looking for? what type of people are your guests? adventurous or will they stay at the resort? couples? older folks? children? What's your price point? Do you want to get married on the beach, etc?

 

Scour the subforums for each and get to googling! Trip Advisor is great also if you're trying to get an "inside scoop" on particular resorts.

 

Good Luck!!!

Hi there and welcome to the forum. Unfortunately I can't help you with either choice but Aisha is right I think if you check out the respective threads the Jamaica Brides or Mexico brides will be able to help you compile a list of pros and cons and narrow your decision. Also try using the search engine as many brides have contemplated this question before and it help you find answers from past brides. Good luck and happy planning!

Great wedding date!! That was the date I was shooting for, but ours will probably end up being in May. I don't know anything about Jamaica, but you should check into the Palace resorts in Mexico. They have them in multiple cities in Mexico. There are a lot of RIu Ocho Rios(ROR) brides on here, so you might want to look into that resort also. Good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
