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!

Hello,

Just wanted to say we started off with Jamaica but went with Mexico as it's cheaper for our guests.  But do your homework and there are great resources on this site, maybe you can get a good deal!  Good luck!

I've been to both countries and loved them both!  Mexico offers more family friendly options where Jamaica offers more couples only...depends on what you're looking for.  Either choice will be fabulous!  Congrats and welcome to the forum :)

Hi congrats for your wedding!

I am certainly not an expert on Jamaica, i have no doubt that is a great place. But I feel that Mexico as the great country that it is, could offer to you a more developed infrastructure. And certainly you can breathe in Cancun and the Riviera Maya first world air. So many people from around the world makes you feel as in home. If I had to take the desition definitely would do my wedding at the Riviera.

Went to Cancun last year and Montego Bay this year.  Went with Mexico for the wedding because it was a little cheaper and not so far for ppl to fly to.  Good Luck.

Congratulations and welcome to the board!

 

Originally we were thinking of Mexico because we have been there and really enjoyed it and you get some pretty decent pricing. However, when we started looking at all the requirements for getting married in Mexico it really put me off. Many brides chose to get married at home (to avoid all the legal issues) and then just have a symbolic ceremony in Mexico or wherever their destination may be. I really did not like this idea as I want to say "I do" only once so we chose Jamaica because it didn't require blood work or any translations.

 

There are lots of beautiful places in Jamaica and depending on what you are looking for I am sure you will find a place that suits your needs. We do not have any children coming and really love the beauty of Negril's beaches so we have booked at Couples Swept Away in Negril and I can't be happier with my choice.

 

Good luck and happy planning :)

    • 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?
