Overwhelmed 2014 Bride

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

I am very excited to start reading everything this website has to offer. To be honest, this whole wedding planning is VERY overwhelming!! We are thinking of getting married in Feb 2014 in the Riviera Maya and our guest list will be around 100. I am hoping for a resort that has under 500 rooms and relatively new. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, suggestions on how to get oneself organized would also be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you!

I don't know of any resorts off hand, but my travel agent did all the looking for a resort for me. I gave him a list of the things that I wanted, and he came back with a list of resorts. So I would definitely recommend getting a travel agent, particularly one who specializes in destination weddings. 

 

For ex, we wanted: 24 hour food and booze, kids allowed at the resort, at least 4 stars, under $2000 per person, all inclusive, and a few other details. He came back with 2 resorts that met both of the requirements, and we chose one based on the reviews online. Turns out the wedding package is half the price at the resort we chose than the other one, so make sure to inquire into the cost of the wedding package too!!

Hello BridevanB,

 

Wedding planning is so much fun especially when you have the right people assisting you.  Here is my advice if you ask yourself the following question, are you looking for an all inclusive resort? 

does it have to be family friendly or adult only? do you want to be close to 5th avenue or a little bit outside? what is your ideal budget for your guests to spend on their rooms.  There are good TA on here that would be happy to assist you in meeting your expectations. 

 

I would suggest in looking into playacar palace and Hacienda Tres Rios. 

 

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

 

Happy Planning.

Joyce

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
