How to set up various site visits in 1-2 days

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies, My FI and I are having such a difficult time trying to pick a resort for our July 2014 wedding. we (mostly me) have changed our minds about a dozen times. Most of it its either the crappy wedding package, too expensive, unattractive beach, small pool. Definitely know we want a resort in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area. My question is how do you go about setting up some site visits to various resorts in say.. a 2 day span? Who sets that up for you? Do you have to make an appointment with a WC at each resort prior to getting there? How do you get there taxi, shuttle?? And lastly, do you have to buy a guest pass to do these site visits? Please help.. I'm super stressed out and ready to call it quits push my wedding another year and just get married in NJ. (Not our dream) :( :confused:

Hi Lori,

 

I think you will want to set up a schedule with each resort's WC if at all possible. You don't want to just pop in and hope they have time to show you around. Plus most of the resorts have security, and if you aren't on the guest list, you may have trouble getting onto the properties. Whether or not you have to buy a guest pass probably depends on what you intend to do at each resort. I think if you're just touring the resort and discussing the wedding venues, you probably wouldn't have to buy a pass (after all, they are trying to sell you!). If you're wanting to get onto the property and explore on your own, swim, etc., then I can see them charging a day pass.  

 

I know that the Karisma resorts have a Bride's Dress Rehearsal package to view their resorts -  it has a lot of perks, and is basically a free 3 day stay so you can tour their resorts (and then you get a credit for the amount of the stay towards your wedding package). Not sure if some of the other resorts offer something similar. 

 

I also wouldn't suggest relying on a taxi to get around. A) they are expensive and B) they don't really "hang out" at the RM resorts. either book a shuttle service for yourselves for the day, or rent a car. All of the resorts in RM are pretty much along the same road leading out of Cancun. And the ones in the Cancun hotel district are also clustered well together. You'd be fine driving yourselves among the resorts, I just wouldn't stray very far from the resorts. 

 

Do you have a travel agent who can help you set these up? 

 

Good luck with your planning!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
