Hello Bride to beABCD!

 

Welcome to the forum and Congrats on your nuptial, As wedding planner in the  Riviera Maya, I agree we have many beautiful resort, beach clubs and villas and sometimes it can get overwhelming. I always advice my brides the best way to choose your resort, ask yourself the following questions.

 

What do you expect your location to offer?

Are you looking for an all inclusive resort?

Does it have to be family friendly?

Do you want to be closer to town, night life and shops?

Are you open to having your wedding at a non resort location?

What budget do you have in mind for your guests to pay for their entire stay?

 

Narrow your options down to 3, then if you planning to come down for an inspection it would be easier. If not then have a TA to get you all the information on your top 3 then make your decision.  

 

BDW has lots of  helpful information and we are all here to help.

 

Feel free to ask me anything and I will be happy to help.

 

Happy Planning!

Joyce

hello bridetobe,

 

In my experience some hotels (all inclusive offer us a lot of benefits if 75% of your total guest stay with them).

European hotels they will charge you the menu of the banquet per person so they dont care where the relatives are staying.

If you choose a location (this option for me was expesier) also you dont care where the people is staying but some times you need to consider the transportation of all your guest to the place and back.

 

Hope this help you.

 

COngrats!!!

Ale

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
