Hi Tara,

 

I have married in Melia Caribe Tropical at the end of  June 2012. I can give you one advice- don`t worry! :) Our wedding was beyond our expectations! We had Esterlin as our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing! She is very professional, very kind and she knows what she is doing. It is really hard to imagine and plan your wedding over the emails, and just as any bride I was really nervous. But, as soon as I met Esterlin, It was gone. She had it all in control! I don`t know about the other planners, but Im sure they are very good as well :)

We had the symbolic ceremony at the garden gazebo and dinner on the beach! It was absolutely perfect! The gazebo was very private, beautiful and most importantly , there were no resort people around. I truly recommend Caribbean trio for the dinner time, even if its just for the few hours. They were playing and singing very soft melodies that created truly romantic Caribbean atmosphere. 

For the symbolic ceremony- Pastor Rick York! Our guests were crying and laughing and crying again. He was one of the best choices we have made for the wedding, together as with Katya Nova as our photographer! :) 

 I have been to many places around the globe and am a very picky person but I was absolutely happy! :)  The resort was really beautiful, people were truly friendly and helpful. Most importantly, our wedding was nothing less than a dream come true! We had people from the US and from Europe, and they still talk about it... :) 

 

Hope this helped, a little? :)

Best luck to you!

Hi, ladys Im getting married at Melia Caribe Jan 2 2014 and a bit confused with the packages . I was Leaning towards the Tides cause our group is not that big . But does that mean that i wont get a first dance? If thats the case ill have to get the private venue but with only 15 people I didnt think it would be necessary.?

If you get married in the garden or beach gazebo you get the space for one hour so after your ceremony you can go directly into a first dance. Garden Gazebo is pretty spacious so I don't think it would be an issue.

    • 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
