Hello,

 

I am also getting married in 2014, probably in August. We are looking at Cancun or Riviera Maya. I was told by my destination wedding advisor that Cancun's beaches are better when compared to Riviera Mayans. I am looking at Beach Palace and Moon Palace but have not yet been able to decide. 

Congrats!!!

Hi, We've been looking at the dreams and secrets resorts in Mexico! There's so much to choose from! I'd really prefer an adults only hotel as there are no children coming. There's so much choice it's hard to narrow it down! X

Sorry, I pressed the wrong button lol but I believe the following are adults only. I believe the one in Cancun is not All-Inclusive, but the others in Riviera Maya are. Also, I was quoted $1066 p/p on the Dorado Resorts and around $1024 for Azul

 

 


  • CANCUN
    • Le Blanc Spa Resort

 

 

  • RIVIERA MAYA
    • El Dorado Maroma
    • El Dorado Seaside
    • El Dorado Casita Royale
    • Azul Villa Esmeralda

 

Hope this helps,

 

Liz.

Hi Carla - congrats!!!

 

The first thing is to figure out where - Mexico vs. Antigua. Both locations are gorgeous!!

 

I don't know much about Antigua, other than it's amazing, so I'm not much help. But Mexico has a bunch of lovely adults-only all inclusive locations. We chose El Dorado Royale for our wedding, and it was just a dream.

 

If you don't have one yet, I'd highly recommend working with a travel agent, regardless of your group's size. It'll make your planning much easier, especially if they are destination wedding specialists - they know the ins and outs of the resorts and the event planning aspect.

 

If I can answer any questions, please feel free to ask!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
