New bride! Planning non-resort wedding :)

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

I'm a newbie here and am so excited to have a destination wedding!

 

We originally decided on the Cloisters in Nassau, Bahamas. But a big factor for us was that we didn't want to stay in a resort with tourists, we want to rent a large villa or rent out a small boutique hotel. This was impossible to find in Nassau so we're back to location hunting!

 

We're considering using the Haiku Mill in Maui but it's also quite pricey. Any suggestions welcome ;)

 

Excited to 'virtually' meet you all!

Hi SapphireBride,

 

We think there are a couple of pretty special boutique hotels (non-AI) on the Riviera Maya in Mexico that are worth checking out. I would look at Le Reve near Playa del Carmen, Ana y Jose in Tulum and Al Cielo, south of Playa del Carmen. The Viceroy is cool, hip and elegant, but the rooms are around $600 a night!

 

We think the friendliness of the locals, the incredible diversity of things to do and the beautiful Caribbean are big reasons to get married on the Riviera Maya. But, we are biased, since we got married here and we live here.

 

Plus, the locations for TTD photos are endless.

 

Good luck with your planning,

Jennifer

Hi Sapphire Bride,

 

Before choosing my non-resort wedding destination in Riviera Maya (Hacienda del Mar, an oceanfront villa in Puerto Aventuras), I had mentally planned a wedding at the Rockhouse Hotel in the cliffs of Negril in Jamaica. It's quite a small boutique hotel and has a few normal rooms that are reasonably priced and private cabanas that are more luxurious with matching higher price tags. I've seen lovely wedding pics from there. Here's one wedding: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2011/06/15/jamaica-wedding-from-david-murray-weddings.

 

Happy planning!
