    Hi All,

       We are leaving in 1 week for our wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun. I've tried asking my WC about this but her responses are slow, even as we are so close :(

       Does anyone have any advice on what form of payment would be best to pay for our wedding. Personal Check or Travelers checks are our preferred methods, unless anyone has any other advise from their experience.

     

    Thanks so much!!

      Hi there,

      Sorry to hear about the slow responses of hotel. We have a wedding venue in Puerto Vallarta and we either ask our clients to deposit to our bank in USA before arrival (except gratuity) and they pay either cash, credit card or they can pay us with a travelers check for the difference. Personal checks will not work I do not think. At least here we do not accept them.

      Cash is fine as well depending on how much is owed though I would think about that twice and if you do just take the cash. If you are paying the hotel directly you could also of course use your credit card or debit card. Bring some cash for miscelleneous use... about 1,000. You need cash in Mexico for emergencies.

      That is all I can think of but I hope it helps. Have fun and rest assured, it will all work out:) It always does....
