I am going with the Occidental Grand Xcaret Riviera Maya because of the following;

 

1. The resort is beautiful

 

2. The resort grounds are big enough that our guests wont be right on top of each other all week, Ryan thinks it is important that our guests not only feel like they are attending a wedding, but are also on there own personal vacation.

 

3. The resort is affordable to our guests.

 

4. Travel time to the Riviera Maya is not lengthy

 

5. The resort can accommodate children.

 

6. Riviera Maya has a lot of activities

 

7 The resort is All Inclusive

 

8. There are condos nearby for guest that do not want an All Inclusive or want to save money and travel in groups.

 

9. It is within close proximity to our honeymoon resort.

 

10. This may sound silly, but there is an ecological park next door to the resort and it looks amazing, if you stay at the Occidental you get a free pass into the park.

 

11. POOL BARS!

I finally decided on Dreams Cancun. Here are some of the reasons

 

1. all inclusive (didn't want to put my guests out more than necessary)

 

2. affordable

 

3. allows children, important since we have one

 

4. medium size, I didn't want anything enormous, I recently went to the atlantis resort in the bahamas and didn't really like it that much, it was like the size of a small town. I wanted to still run into my guests from time to time, but for them to still feel like they were on vacation

 

5. I heard very good things about dreams and their weddings, I also heard that they only have one wedding a day, maybe two if they are both small, so that was important as well

 

6. they have a beautiful gazebo overlooking the ocean for the ceremony

 

7. it was my original first choice and then I looked at a million other places, but just felt that this would be the best place for us and our family

 

8. my FI really loves to travel and see different parts of the world, and I knew he'd really like to see the mayan ruins while there

 

9. we wanted to go somewhere neither one of us had ever been

 

I guess that's about it

Hello ladies,

 

We decided to get married at Moon Palace for lots of the reasons that's been mentioned, including:

 

1. They have great wedding packages.

2. It's all-inclusive

3. Good ratings from other brides

4. Family friendly (we wanted our nieces and nephews to be able to come)

5. They pretty much do it all

6. Beautiful gazebo and horse drawn carraige

7. We've never been there.

8. You have access to all of the other Palace properties

9. Tours and water sports are included

10. It's not in the hotel zone (we didn't want to be with the Spring Breakers)

Hi, I'm getting married in a non-all-inclusive resort. I'm having a reception for 150-200 people and I didn't want them and us, expending that much.

 

SO we went on a scouting trip in july and decided for Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancún, the beach is lovely and the food is delicious.

You are right- the Fiesta Americana Condesa does have a beautiful beach. When we were in Cancun last summer we went on an excursion that left at that hotel and we commented that next time we came back to Cancun, we'd like to stay there. It is gorgeous!

I feel jealous everytimme I see other locations (I'm getting married in Cabo). It's not that I don't love where we're getting married it just that I want to have a wedding in ALL these places!!!!

 

You lovely ladies enjoy!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
