Figuring out where to have our wedding.......We chose Excellence Cancun -but it was a difficult decision!

Recommended Posts

We love love Mexico. We got engaged down in beautiful and peaceful Tulum, Mexico at the hotel Cabanas Tulum.


If you have never been in that area of Mexico and you love peaceful, beautiful beaches, hotel rooms that allow you to feel like you are literally in paradise because the rooms have the option of balcony suites or ground hotel rooms that are steps from the ocean, you will love Tulum. We especially liked this hotel because the staff was so welcoming and friendly it was hard to leave! The minimal amount of people is for the best, it allows you to really be in tuned with the person you are with, to get to know them, enjoy the quiet and beauty around you, and to just be.


While my fiance and I were having our drinks on the cool bar  swing seats, we were talking about how people who need  to be around a lot of people and like loud and busy surroundings, wouldn't like Tulum because it is so laid back and of a relaxed environment. You make your own fun, you get to know yourself and your partner and its just such a rejuvenating experience.


Getting proposed to in the candle lit star lit sky, with only the sound of the ocean was perfect and just what I dreamed of. When I think back to that night of a delicious 5 course personalized dinner which my fiance picked out all the food for the evening and the chef at Ziggy's restaurant cooked  to our liking.


The way my fiance had the hotel staff set up the room to look like a princess was coming, was so wonderful. The hotel staff helped and made sure everything was done right and actually put effort and creativeness into it as well. How great is that?!


All in all is if you are interested in a place like Tulum, to walk the beaches and enjoy each other with not so many people around and to get to know nature and be free of the business of everyday life you will love this cute little town. We felt safe and at ease, and there was nothing that went wrong and everything that went right :)


If you have any questions please feel free to ask away!

    • 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
