Hi Everyone!! Im new to the board but am excited to start planning our wedding in the Riviera Maya!! I was hoping that some of you may have resort recommendations :). We are looking for a family friendly resort (I have a 12yr old sister) with a great beach (we want to be married in the sand :) ). Thanks in advance!! This board seems to be a treasure mine of information!

One thing for you to think about and that will help the brides on this site to give recommendations:  Do you want a private reception?  Some resorts include a dinner at one of the restaurants (other guests could be nearby) with their wedding packages while others include a private reception (say on the beach or near the pool).  But as you can imagine the package prices can differ significantly.

 

As a reference, the Dreams Resorts (they have resorts in Cancun, Riviera Cancun, Puerto Aventuras, and Tulum) have a $2800 package (their highest package) that includes a ceremony, cocktail hour, private dinner reception and minimal photography & videography for 20 people.  Hopefully you can use that as a starting comparison for your search!  Best of luck...

Thanks! we would like a portion of the reception to be private, weather thats just a short cocktail hour or the full reception depends on the cost of a private reception. And thanks so much for your help! Our main concern is just that theres a beautiful beach where the ceremony can be held and that its a family friendly resort (there seem to be so many amazing adult only resorts). thanks again!

I wish I could be of more assistance, but I am a gazebo bride with a beach reception.  So I was focused on finding a resort with a good gazebo.  There should be lots of brides on the forum that were searching for beach ceremony sites that can fill you in on what they found.

Hey there, I also wanted a beautiful beach and needed it to be kid friendly.. have you checked out the Palace resorts? There is Cancun Palace, Beach Palace (where I am getting married) that are all ages... and they are pretty well adept @ wedding production...there are negatives (nonresponsive wedding coordinators until you get closer to the date, high costs for extras and outside vendor fees, if you can get them approved...) but there are lots of positives too (wedding packages, middle of the road pricing, nice resorts, nice beaches).

Hey there!  I'm getting married at Playacar Palace in Playa del Carmen and had the same concerns as you.  I have a 17 year old, 8 year old and twin 5 year olds that will be traveling with their parents, and my FI and I wanted to get married on the beach.  Palace Resorts also has a great complimentary wedding package, and perks based on how many rooms or room nights your party books (i.e. comp nights, cocktail hour or reception after the wedding).  I did a ton of research and PP was the absolute best fit for me.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
