Airica26- What do you mean they have a resort credit promotion of $1500. I am very confused.


 

Great to see that there are lots of girls from Wpg. Hopefully the weather will be like a normal winter next year so that it really feels like a winter get away. Not complaining though! +22 tomorrow! that's insane!

I was quite shocked at the cost. I guess I thought it would be around $1500 to $1800 max but for a good resort it seems to be closer to $1800 plus. My TA told me flight prices are going up May 2012 so this could be the issue. There are resorts you can go to that will be closer to $1500 but they will be far inferior and I figured might as well get people to pay $200-300 more for a much better resort.

 

I am getting married at Moon Palace (Cancun) in 2013 and it seems to be running between $1800 and $1900 but it is an easy sell to guests because they have a $1500 resort credit promotion. Maybe finding something like that will make you feel at ease about the high cost.

Every room gets a $1500 credit to use for various things. Golfing, spa treatments, tours, room upgrades, etc. You can even use your $1500 towards select wedding packages. I opted for the complimentary wedding so I can't use it (even for anything I add on to the complimentary wedding) but I can still use it to go to the spa and my fiancee can golf for free.

 

This may be a bonus to people, especially the room upgrade people can use it toward. My guests will be paying about $1800 and having this $1500 really cushioned the blow some people felt about the price.

 

Here check it out.

Hello Canadian Newbies and welcome to the forums!  tkuzma if you haven't already created a wedding website this is a great place to start and a great tool to keep your guests updated on your progress.  There are a lot of threads on them to help you get ideas.  I leave April 15th for a site inspection trip on the weddings at Karisma Resorts, keep an eye on the wiki for an article I will be posting.  You might find it helpful for your wedding at El Dorado Maroma.

Congrats and happy planning!!!

Hey everyone, I guess I am a posting newbie but I must admit I have been lurking on here for a while. This is such a great community with excellent tips and advice. 

I am hoping to get married in the Mayan Riviera this November. We originally had our date booked at the Azul Sensatori which I LOVE but once we got package prices it turned out a lot of guests could not afford it so we now have to change our venue. I am terrified to pick another place! We have been looking at the Ocean Coral & Turqusa. I read all 119 pages on that forum! Great advice an tips. I am still unsure though. Waiting to hear back from my TA on some other recommendations within our price range. I just want it booked! It is nerve racking at this point to not be booked yet. It is getting close!

Hey ladies, I just wanted to let you know that Canada Post has new commemorative stamps out for spring featuring daylilies! I was so excited to find these because the flowers look tropical and are pretty fuchsia and orange colours, which are my wedding colors. I'm going to stock up because my STDs are going out soon. These can be purchased online or at the post office

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
