Hello Everyone!

 

I have to say this is one great website...however I'm still trying to figure things out on here! My fiance and I got engaged Aug 2009, and we were actually supposed to be getting married Aug 28th 2010. I ended up postponing (for a few reasons) largely because our guest list was getting so out of control! I was starting to have anxiety over standing up in front of 250+ people saying my vows, and the center of such large attention. smile41.gifNow that things have settled, we decided the best way to keep it small and intimate was to do a destination wedding.

 

 

We have not picked a specific date yet, but we are hoping to do Jan/Feb 2012 at Moon Palace in Cancun. I have to say I am a little intimidated about the task ahead! I don't even know where/how to start! At this point on the MP website, I do not have the option to submit a request for 2012. I can see it fills up FAST and want to make sure we get the date (and more importantly the time) we want. I ended up contacting them using the "contact us" tab on their site to ask them what I can do to make sure we get the date we want, but I have not heard from them yet! I have heard they can be a little slow at responding, so I will just have to be patient! blink.gif

 

I have to say I am getting some negative feedback about Mexico. My parents are very concerned...to ease some of the nervousness I have been sending them loads of websites/blogs/info that I find on the Internet. They are slowly warming up to it, but the next hurdle will be convincing everyone else its safe too!

 

Thank you all for your postings! Even though I am TERRIBLE at making decisions (especially when I have tons of options), hopefully this website will help me be more proactive! I know I will be looking to you all for all my random rants, raves, questions, and concerns! Thanks in advance! cheesy.gif

UPDATE!

 

I actually got a response from MP this morning! Wow that was pretty darn fast from what I've heard. So I got an email from Jennifer Gamboa,

 the Wedding Sales Assistant, and said this:

 

"Good Day! We are currently not booking weddings for 2012 at the moment. You will need to  check back with us in January. We don't have any waiting list dates and times are subject to availability. Thank you and have a wonderful day!"

 

So looks like early Jan 1st I will be up and trying to book a date on thier site! Wish me luck! ;)

Good luck with the planning! I felt exactly that way in the beginning and slowly things have fallen into place. I am very indecisive and with all the great tips, ideas, and advice, it is hard to decide.

In any case, looking forwar to reading your "random rants, raves, questions, and concerns!"

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
