congrats!!!!! I do see that finding the perfect resort is the hardest part! Getting engaged at a resort definitely eliminated all other resorts for me, so that seems to be the least of my worries! We are Dreams buddies though :) I am getting married at Dreams Puerto Vallarta!

Hi Kay!

 

We have many brides looking for skinny starfish to bring down with them because they are either hard to get in destination, or very expensive. Who would have thought right?! Ebay is a great resource for this and they are very inexpensive here.

Congrats!! And yes that does make it easy! Lucky! We went back and forth on so many resorts. I swear I could tell you everything about like 10 different resorts in the Mayan Riviera by now. I like the simplicity of the Dreams packages though and the resort looks beautiful! Have you picked a package?

I think we are going to go with the ultimate package....though I'm not as sure now, after realizing how little photography we really get with the package. I might look into an outside photographer/videographer for the day of and use the resort photography for a ttd session. We just have such a limited budget, it scares me a little how expensive everything is!

I'm from North Vancouver and just joined last week!  I'm still waiting for him to pop the question, but we've discussed the possibility of a DW.  We went to the RIU Palace Riviera Maya for a wedding in September and loved it!  I think we'll choose Riviera Maya for a wedding, if we go that route.  I've looked at the RIU, as well as Dreams Tulum and Now Jade. I'll just have to get him on board once he proposes!

Hey everyone! I'm just starting to look for resorts for our jan or feb 2014 wedding. Dreams seems to be popular. Bit hubby likes the looks or Melia Caribe Tropical. Any input of that resort? Also do you book your wedding then go to the travel agent and book the week? All new to this. We have only gone to Mexico, last year,with a group for vowe renewals ( and was perposed at tulum) but we didn't have to do any of the major planning. So this is all new to both of us.

Hi Alirea,

 

My FI proposed while we were on vacation in the Mayan Riviera also!  We booked our wedding before we booked our trip.  We actually are still shopping around a bit for thel trip for the wedding.  We have our wedding date confirmed and know which week we want to go.  Some people do it the opposite way.  We didn't want to do it that way though, as we were concerned that we would not be able to reserve a date in the week we were looking at.  My advice would be to go with a travel agent that specializes in destination weddings that can help you through it.  (It can be quite overwhelming).  This website is a great tool though, lots of people to talk things out with!  Choosing a resort is the hardest part.

 

Happy planning!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
