Expecting more than 70 guests?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the suggestions. I really like EDR but I believe it is adults only and we will have several children. Also, I have been to Moon Palace and it is very lovely but I am worried about the cost for all the guests (plus a friend was just married there in December). I have looked into the Rius but am waiting on a response from the WC.

 

We are going down for a site visit in September so I wanted to narrow down the places that we will visit since we are only there for 2 days. I am sure we will be very busy "site-seeing" so it will be weird going to Mexico knowing that there won't be any beach time! wink.gif

Well, it's not in playa del carmen, but Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya is huge and would easily hold 70 guests.

We are getting married at Dreams Cancun and expecting about 100 guests (we have 90 confirmed and booked at this point). Dreams is great because it's an AI and kid-friendly, w/o being overrun by children. They have a Kid's Club that will keep them entertained all day and into the night! We love the gazebo location. And, it is less than 10 miles from the airport which really cuts down on travel time for our guests. There are several different areas where you would be able to hold your reception with 70 people (the beach, the "garden" situtated alongside the cliffs by the gazebo, the Terrace, and the indoor ballroom).

Hi Susan,

 

Thanks for the suggestion of Dreams Cancun. I have been to Cancun several times and to be honest it is way too touristy for me so I didn't even consider it. But I went and looked at some pictures and read some reviews and it really sounds like something we are looking for. I guess it will have to be added to list of places we will see during our upcoming site visit.

 

Also, I suppose we can honeymoon in PDC or more south since that is much more our speed and then everyone will be happy!

 

Thanks again,

Melissa

I had 180 guests and my wedding was at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun, I picked it because there was no way I could have my guests stay at one particular resort and the dinner we had was delicious for the price we paid..

Anny,

 

That place looks great. Do you have any pictures of your actual reception set-up? Were you happy with the place? Is there anything you would have done differently?

 

Many thanks,

Melissa

Yup, we're still over a month away from our RSVP due date (Sept 30) and we already have 65 confirmed - we're estimating maybe close to 85 in total (we only budgeted for 60 - eek!!) We're having the ceremony at the JW Marriott, and they have said that they can handle much more than that (we're all staying at the Gran Caribe Real for the week though). We're just PRAYING that Hurricane Dean doesn't tear down our gazebo or leave a lot of damage to either resort!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
