Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new here and at the beginning stages. I am looking into April of 2014, have not booked anything yet just been lurking the site cry.gif. It seems like everything is out of our price range, I am looking for a small boutique hotel in the playa del carmen or Tulum area, and a wedding planner that is reasonable, will work with our budget but also make our wedding beautiful!!

Congratulations happywife! I will be an April 2014 bride (need to change my signature) in Rivera Maya.  I really like my wedding planner that I've been working with thus far, Joyce Mnguni of Dream Weddings. She posts on BDW and is very helpful.  You also definitely want to find a good travel agent who also has knowledge of boutique hotels with the feel and price range that you are looking for.  I hope this helps!

 

P.S. If you give us some idea of what you want each guest to pay (e.g. no more than $1500 per person), that might help generate some ideas.  This board really is incredibly helpful.

Hi Brownsugar, Congratulations to you as well! what date are you thinking? also, do you mind sending me a private message on your wedding planner. I have not set a budget per person ( which I should) A lot of our guests are families of 4-5 so I dont want anything to steep for them.  We are planning to do a site visit but have not establised when yet. Also, when are you sending the save the dates, I feel like I need to hurry up and do so.

 

Just a little run down on us we are already married will be married for 5 years by the time we have the wedding, but we never had a big reception just court and went home.. LOL we have attempted to plan a wedding 3 times, and something always came up where we had to cancel. ( once I even had to throw out invites). So I am hoping this one is the charm, we really want to have a big celebration, and some sort of religious ceremony!

I lover your colors... 

 

As for OOT bags... I think I need an intervention!   Maybe we should all start a support group HAHa - of course we would need to find someone who isn't addicted to help ; P

Welcome!   You but you may want to almost work backwards before you fall in love with a place that just isn't reasonable, which was the very first thing I did only to realize my guests would've been paying $4K minimum for 5 days. 

 

After that mini hiccup I decided the max I wanted my guests to spend per person then went from there. I did a lot of research to find a beautiful place that would still be affordable for our guests. I also researched airfare which is why I'm getting married 2/7 and not later in Feb like I originally wanted, when the airfare was much higher.  My resort has great reviews and the pictures are gorgeous, it also accepts kids and for those with real little ones it didn't impact the room rate (all things I researched and had quoted out too).  My wedding planner has been so hopeful and responsive but my resort is definitely not boutique style so it probably wouldn't be of interest to you, but someone on here may have some really good suggestions for you.

    • 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?
