thanks Lynda, thats awesome! If you were to replace the Secrets and Excellence Riviera Cancun recommendations with child friendly resorts, what would be your next two picks? We have a few little ones in the family:)

Hey PickyBride,

 

We recently shot a wedding at Dreams PA. Their are some nice locations for photos and the gazebo area juts out into the ocean, so there are no scantily clad bathers in your wedding photos. 

 

There were a lot of activities for kids and the food we had was decent.

 

Here is a link to the blog post showing the wedding and a few more photos posted below.

 

Good luck,

Jennifer

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the site and I am very excited to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts. FI and I got engaged in October at the Secrets Maroma, which I must say is really nice and exudes romance. The food was excellent. The only thing we have decided on is a destination wedding, as we would like to have a smallish wedding (50 people or less) and we are thinking Oct or Nov of 2013. We are looking for somewhere warm with direct flights from Vancouver (Mexico, Jamaica, Costa Rica), affordable for the guests, and child friendly, an all inclusive resort that has somewhere a little more private for the ceremony. The privacy for the ceremony comes from the fact I watched 3 weddings while at SM, as the weddings are right beside the beach loungers. I also want the resort to have great food and a great beach. I don't know if this even exists. I am really hoping that it does, as I ideally would like to have everything in one location (i.e., stay at an all-inclusive resort, and have the ceremony and reception at the same place). Alternatively I have looked into the Xcarat, but it seems maybe a little too expensive. I have also looked into Al Cielo, as we went there for the day a few years ago and both the food and beach are amazing, but then I need to find an all-inclusive resort near Al Cielo. But ideally, I would love to find an all-inclusive resort that fits my criteria. In advance, thank you very much for your suggestions and opinions and thanks for having me on the forum.  [/quote Hi! I'm getting married at the hard rock punta cana. The prices are great! Before I decided on a resort I signed up at www.destinationweddings.com... All you pay is $50 and you get your own personal wedding specialist. I am dealing with a lady who is pretty much my middle man. She has been taking care of rooms and travel. Let me know if your interested and I will give you her contact information.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
