    Hello all :) ..

    Im due to get married in March 2011 but deciding on a resort for the wedding has been a nightmare so far!! As there is so many requirements to take into consideration for the guests I can't seem to settle on anything.

    Due to budgets of the guests (we're coming from the UK so it's working out expensive) and other factors we've decided that we will stay in a cheaper hotel for 1 week with the guests, have the wedding in the first week, and then move to a more honeymooney hotel for the 2nd week for just the two of us. But because of this we'd need to have our wedding 'A La Carte'.

    I've noticed that the Gran Porto Real and Gran Carible Real both offer this service, but I was wondering if any one has come across any other hotels that do it? Or if any one has used this service? Any advice at all would be really appreciated. I've only got 8 months left so I need to start getting things booked!!

    Thanks girls.x

      so happy to see that some brides are looking to avoid packages and make their wedding more personalized

      What we suggest is jsut book rooms and then have an outside coordinator like to book the ser4vice you really need according to YOUR taste- this is very duable in non all inclusive hotels.....have you checked Le Reve....nice little hotel very flexible.

        I'm getting married in Cancun at the Crown Paradise, as a recommendation from a travel agent, and it has been GREAT! They have really reasonable prices for my guests right now, $1080 a person for air and all inclusive hotel for 7 days 6 nights.

        They also don't have huge fees for using outside vendors like many of the other resorts. I only have to pay $150 for my photographer and my make-up and hair person can come for free. We also have an option for a private 3 hour dinner for $30 a person which also includes a DJ. The wedding coordinator, Evelyn, is also very easy to work with via e-mail.

        Hope all works out!

          We are doing something very similar because we would like as many of our friends to be able to afford to come to the wedding. Actually the Gran Porto real is one of our top contenders for our everyone to stay at. We have decided to get married on a private residential beach and have our reception at the Kool Club. I am also working with a wedding coordinator so that i don't have to worry about everything myself.
