I am offically going to be a 2014 destination wedding bride! We chose Beach Palace Cancun and set the date for May 10, 2014. (Travel dates May 7-14). Most of our group will be departing frmo Calgary but the ones in the USA are booking their travel seperately. Last week we paid our group deposit to Sunwing (Managed to snag the no-fuel-surcharge deal which was great), sent out e-Save the Dates last week, and put a deposit down at the hotel for the wedding date. We are planning to get married on the rooftop skyterrace and then have the reception on the rooftop poolside terrace area with tiki torches and dancing under the stars Things are really coming along!
One thing I have to say is I cannot stand my travel agent. She has a way of making me feel like I am bothering her with questions and that her way is the only way that works. I asked her to let me know when my guests make deposits and she said "I think that I am too busy to do that for every guest". Really? How freakin hard is it to send a simple email with the guest names...I am not asking for a hard copy hand written report lol. Anyways not only that, she seemed so great when I first spoke with her and I had called their office and she took on my booking with such enthusiasm....but she was going on vacation for a week and I asked her if there was someone else in the office who could handle my file while she wasy away. Well she told me she would be getting the quote by email and she is never far from her laptop so i will hear from her within a day or two, I even gave her my credit card to make the deposit when the quote came in....well nearly a week later and I still had not heard anything. The sunwing no-fuel-surcharge was going to expire the day she got back and I was convinced i had missed it. Monday morning comes around and I FINALLY hear back from her and she has the SAME quote that I already had the week before (I had initially spoke with Sunwing on my own to get a quote but decided to work with an agent). So I tell her to quickly book my group and get it freakin locked down. She jsut brushed it off saying she was busy and that she was on vacation....Well lady, I asked to be switched to someone else in the office since I was in a rush to get things booked! (LOL soory for the rant, i havent had a chance to get that off my chest to anyone yet!! haha).
All that aside, atleast things are booked and moving along. Our quote for 7 days from calgary, all inclusive with roundtrip airport transfers comes to about $1598 + 190 tax for a basic resort view room. Ocean view was about $1700+190 I think. Our guests contact the travel agent and are able to upgrade their room levels if they want. Beach Palace is a little pricier then some of the other places but the reviews are very good and the food quality sounds amazing. I have been to all inclusives before when the food is bad and it is just terrible. I hope the resort turns out to be as good as I hope
Happy Planning! I cant wait to hear about everyone elses plans

Just booked our wedding in the mayan riviera January 26-Feb 2.
We are getting married January 30, 2014 at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba.
Got great rates from Westjet Vacations through our travel agent. We have guests coming from all over Canada and we were really happy that we all arrive and depart on the same day.
Just got some of the pre-planning info from the WC. Had to make some decisions already about where to have the dinner and had to pick a set menu for 50 guests (hope everyone likes chicken gorgonzola)
Anyone else on her getting married around that time period?

Hi everyone, I am from Vancouver but currently in South Korea teaching. I am planning on getting married in Mexico August, 2014. It is so hard to choose a resort! We have been to Mexico once, stayed at the Grand Palladium and loved it. We are currently looking at Gran Caribe Real and Beach Palace Resorts. It is tough and very overwhelming though. I am looking forward to having the resort and date locked. Thank you for starting this thread, it is great!!

Hello fellow Canucks!
Congratulations on your engagements! Our area is just full of amazing resorts, I know how tricky it can be. Lori has put together a little FAQ sheet:
