Newbie- Planning a 2012 wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow brides!!  So much information here it can definitely be overwhelming. My fiance and I got engaged on 10-10-10. 

 

Still researching information but leaning towards Dreams. Either Riviera Cancun or La Romana.

 

All the reviews have been really helpful. I have to plan the wedding during the school schedule so it'll either be Spring/Summer of 2012. 2011 seemed so close and we want to enjoy the engagement. =)

 

Would love to hear any recommendations that anyone has. Going to try and do a site visit once the holidays are over.

 

Thank you all for the great posts!

Welcome and congratulations!!!!! We got engaged October 19, 2010 at the Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort. We are thinking Spring 2012 as well. Let me know if you have any questions about that resort.

Thank you! I like that Dreams is family friendly and also AI. Reading all the reviews has been great. I've been to Iberostar in Riviera Maya and the Riu in Aruba where we had a bad experience. Right now it's just researching and making lists of which hotels we want to see when we go down. Do you have pictures from your visit? How was the food? I would love the have my date booked atleast a year in advance so I can send out the save the dates.

We had a plunge pool and we loved it!! It was slightly warmer than the big pool and it was nice and quiet after a long day or excursions.

 

Everything about the hotel was great. The food was amazing. My favorite restaurant was the Bordeaux, I am very familiar with authentic french cuisine and they pull it off very well. The restaurant I was most disappointed with was Himitsu. We eat a lot of sushi, chines and Japanese and we were really disappointed in the quality.If you like crab make sure you get the crab won tons at Oceana or Seaside Grill. They make them fresh everyday and I'm sure I ate 30 in a week. If I had my wedding at this resort this is one thing I would have to include. Overall the food was amazing.

 

One suggestion I have is that if you have more than 10 people that will be going or even a smaller group I would suggest maybe private transportation if you want to save time. Every time we did an excursion we were the first on the bus and the last off. We were on the bus a minimum of and hour to a max of 2 hours each way. One day we had a total of 3 hours on the bus and it could have been a little over an hour if it was private. I would rather pay a little more to save my precious vacation time.

 

I have so many to things to say about the resort but I can't think right now. Let me know if you they any questions.

 

Oh, make sure you bring conditioner if you normally use hotel shampoo, they don't give any...soooo weird!

 

I am making a list too and it is so hard to decide. Let me know what you think of other resorts that you see. I think that I have looked at every other resort but nothing has compared to this one in the same price range, someone feel free to prove me wrong. I want the best deal!

you know you can use the bdw travel agents.  they created this site and apparently, know everything there is to know about all of these hotels.  EVERYONE who uses them raves about them endlessly.  and best of all... free to you!!  i plan to use them once he actually asks me to marry him.  We're making plans and a budget, etc.. but still waiting for that ring, lol.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
