Excited and overwhelmed!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I'm excited to join this site and learn as much as I can about planning for a destination. Just started the process and am loving it but there is so much to decide on. We are planning on hopefully getting married in the Riviera Maya, cozumel or playa del carmen area. Any brides out there have any tips on deciding what is the best month to get married in that area keeping weather and cost in mind? 


Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Hello and welcome!

 

You'll learn fast that there's a lot of great info on this site if you spend some time here! I'm getting married in Jamaica, so I unfortunately don't know much about Mexico weddings but you might want to start with the Mexico-specific boards for some info on the areas you're interested in/times of year to go. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/f/4/destination-wedding-in-riviera-maya-cancun-surrounding-areas Once you decide on a resort and a date, there will be plenty of great ideas on here you probably never considered but then decide you have to do (yep, I'm speaking from experience.) Haha. Good luck and happy planning!

Hi Norma!

 

How are the plans coming along? Feeling excited is great, but not overwhelmed! Have you found a resort yet that you are thinking about marrying at? A couple of great properties you should look at are Azul Beach, Azul Sensatori, Grand Sunset Princess and Riu Palace Riviera Maya. Not only are these hotels fantastic for your guests, they have amazing wedding programs that offer brides lots of options. We work quite a bit with these resorts and just love them.

 

As for the time of year to get married at, we plan weddings year round and find that the weather is what it wants to be! I know that there is the worry of the hurricane season, but in all honesty, we have traveled year round to Caribbean destinations and the weather can be great during the summer months! We'd love to answer any other questions you have - please let us know!

 

Happy Planning!

    • 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
