Hello From Canada...

Recommended Posts

Read as much as you can for the first few days. You will get lots of info about what works and what doesn't. I would definitely take the reviews on here to heart. The brides are very honest and usually list every detail. Good luck in your planning. I think if you focus on it you will get it all accomplished, no problem! BTW, we are getting married at Dreams Tulum.

Welcome to the forum! Hopefully you'll find what you're looking for. I can't tell you much about the Sunset Princess, but the RIU's are very nice. I have stayed at the RIU Yucatan, and we did a site inspection at the RIU Palace (be careful there are 2 RIU Palaces almost right beside each other). They are both beautiful. I would suggest advising your guests ahead of time you are planning a destination wedding so they can start planning for it. Also take a quick look on a travel website for pricing on the resorts, what would work better for you and your guests and maybe tackle your decision that way.

We had to include a resort which was kid friendly, so that changed a lot for us. (I think the RIU Palaces are adult only-but you should double check, the other RIU's are family resorts.)

Good luck!

Hola!

Welcome to the forum and above all, congratulations for your engagement!

Firstly, one of the best things about Riviera Maya is the fact that you can get everything you dream, and it goes from the simplest things, up to the most elaborated... So I am certain that you will love it.Concerning the resort, rather try to find out the advice you get on this forum. Tripadvisor is a great tool but sometimes, people write a review when they are unhappy... Anyways, i am confident that you will find the right place for your wedding :)
Your wedding is going to be full of magic and this website will help you a lot!

We wish you the best.

Happy planning.

Thank you everyone for the wishes of good luck!  Yesterday, I sent off a request to the Royal Playa Del Carmen and they responded within 24 hours.  I am off to search this site for any and all information about this resort, as I think this might be the one (my fiance likes it!)

 

If any of you happen to be getting married there, or have been married there recently please do not hesitate to fill me in on the details.  We are looking at a small gathering of about 15 to 20 people (including the two of us) and do not want to blow our budget!  I think that this resort may be a bit pricey as far as accommodations go, so I am looking for information about group rates.

 

Off I go to research!  cheer2.gif

Congrates fellow Canadian..

 

I would love to give you some advice, but I try to stay out of the resort vs resort thing because one couple will love a resort and then next couple will have a less than desirable experience... If your really stuck PM me... (with budget too please) ... the other thing I can do is get you in touch with some great travel agents from Canada that specialize in these... ??

 

best of luck!

 

-dean

 

btw. 3 months, no problem.. the more time, the more you have to fret and worry, so there you go, less worrying ... the only problems are if your guests can make it for the date and the rings... if you want custom rings, go now! .. cause it might take time to find and make those things... :) .. other than that, your good and have fun.. :)

If you're still looking around, I highly recommend Weddings by Oceans - a travel company specializing in destination weddings.  They can not only help you decide on a location, but help coordinate your guests travel arrangements FREE of charge.  (link: www.weddingsbyoceans.com)

 

I'm using them and they've been wonderful! :)
GOOD LUCK!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
