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 Liz,

Just wanted to say good luck on your search. We have been to Mexico a few times and we feel the beaches in the Riviera Maya area (Tulum, Akumal, Playa del Carmen) are so much nicer than the Cancun beaches. Bigger beach area, water more of a turquoise blue. They are absolutely gorgeous so you can't go wrong:) Just wanted to throw that out there to give you more options on your search. Happy Planning!!

Hello snorfle1,

 

Thank you very much for the info!!! I am glad to hear that side by side comparison. It is difficult to plan when you have not been to the location. I am leaning towards Azul Sensatori but I am also doing some research on Grand Velas and Fairmont Riviera Maya.

I appreciate you taking the time to respond :)

I'm a 2014 bride as well. We have chosen the Riviera Maya. It is a gorgeous area, with excellent beaches! I was there for a different DW a few years back and I fell in love with the area. Now it's my turn! The hardest part so far has been choosing the resort. You ladies are right, there are SOOOO many resorts down there. We are in the process of booking 20 rooms (and ceremony date) at the resort we finally chose, hopefully will hear back from our TA tomorrow.  I don't want to say which resort as of yet because I don't want to jinx myself. lol What a relief it will be to have the resort decided on and dates final. 

 

Goodluck to all the ladies still looking for a location/resort. Riviera Maya is a wonderful destination and your guests will love you for choosing this area!

how early did you send out save-the-dates...I haven't been able to book the resort yet due to it being too early yet. I wanted to send out my save the dates so that it gives people enough time to save or make arrangements, to come. Should I wait to send them out till I book the resort...or just do it?

That's a hard one. I sent out an intention email in August 2012 saying this is the plan. STDs as soon as I booked in October and formal invites on Dec 14, 2012. So everyone had full information 15 months to the day in advance. I would get basic info out ASAP. When do they open up reservations for your date? If its soon wait if its a ways away STD

Not till at least april, so i'm just thinking about sending out a STD saying please let me know if your planning on attending cause i want to know about how many people were going to get.  Then i'll send out info about booking as i get it plus i have a website so i'll post it on there and then after i book and confirm the date i'll send the invitations...cause i want that to be a for sure date thing....Plus I can put together an email list for the people I know are going to come or thinking about coming as soon as i hear back from the STD's....to keep everyone in the loop that is attending...

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
