Wedding at Resort, reception elsewhere (cancun/maya riveria area)?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of taking advantage of the resort wedding but not too excited about how the dinner receptions are set up.  anyone have a reception elsewhere and what options are?

Hello Marilili,

 

I am not sure what hotel are you considering. I am in the same position as you, want to have a nice hotel but not the reception there. So, I look into this places: Blue Venado (my mom visited the place and said is really nice, a little bit rustic but the food is amazing!!), Kool Beach Club, Alux Restaurant (it's a cave and it seems amazing. Again, my mom went there for a site visit and she loved it!..). Another place is Lolita's Beach for ceremony and reception on the beach or..Restaurant Pavo Real (this is a Palapa and really nice but is far away from the beach). This are some of the places I look...if you find something else let me know...

Congratulations and welcome to the forums! Depending on the size of your wedding party and guests... maybe a beach option in Playa would work for you. 2 places come to mind that are very romantic and can accommodate groups of 20+ or so. Both are setup with beautiful candle light at night!

The first one would be Zenzi: http://www.zenzi-playa.com/lounge.php

The second is Fusion: http://fusionhotelmexico.com/

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

Best of luck with all your plans.

Thanks for all of the input.  I have been sending e-mails and I have been receiving menus and quotes.  So far I have most of the information on blue venado and Alux.  I'm just waiting to see how much they charge for privatizing the event.  If anyone want's the information send me a message.

Hi, i'm looking at non-resort receptions too! Blue venado seem great at reply to emails quickly, and willing to help make a really great event.Did you get any info for Zensi, fusion or kool beach club? Alux is out for me, as im looking to have ceremony and reception in same place (and on the beach). It all seems much simpler for people who go with the big resorts - but i dont want a place where guests have to stay there if they dont want to (or i get charged a lot, grand velas wanted 500 dollars more or less for every non hotel guest!)

 

I really love blue venado but im suffering from "what  if theres something better out there" syndrome so i'm trying to gather all the information i can..... Any information appreciated! I have all the menus and prices for Blue Venado if anyone needs them

 

Random aside - are you guys doing all this alone or have you involved a wedding co-ordinator? I thought i could do it completely alone but now im wondering if having someone to help pull it together would be helpful!

Well for me Kool Beach Club is out - i want a wedding as well as reception and you can't get onsite until 7pm. Since May sunset times are around 7.20pm  i'd have no time for photographs and the wedding would be in the dark! back to the drawing board...i have their information if anyone needs it though x

I'd love if you could email me the kook beach info. Marilili18@hotmail.com I also keep going back to blue venado. Very easy to work with. I have a few others that I can't think off the top of my head, but I will email you the info and names, but it seemed that blue venado was still a more economical option for what you are getting

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
