Congrats! I am also a Feb 2014 bride however have not picked a date or a resort yet! Very stressed .... we are thinking Cancun/Riv Maya area. Where are you travelling from? How much will your guests be paying?

 

I am travelling to the Gran Caribe Real next week to do a site visit at that resort and some other ones too. I believe we will be doing a visit to the Gran Porto Resort - which is the sister resort to the one we are staying at :)

Thank you Cherina!  I've always wanted to go to Jamaica...

 

Hi BridetobeABCD!  I chose the Gran Porto because of costs... Its a lot cheaper than the Royal and kids can come.  I was looking at the RIUs and a couple other hotels in Playa, and it seemed as though all or most of the guests had to stay at the resort in order to come to your wedding.  Although I would love to have everyone stay at the resort, the reality is that some will not be able to.  Gran Porto does not require guests to stay at the resort!  (Although, you will pay a bit of a higher fee for them to come).  I also loved the Gran Porto because you can have everything outside and customize your wedding.  You can bring your own things (decorations and what not) and they do not mind.  We are doing everything on the North beach (ceremony, cocktail hour and private reception).

 

Since we are having it in Feb (during high season) I'm telling guests that the total cost with airfaire would be somewhere between $1100 and $1400 for 5-6 nights.  But I am letting people come and go as they choose.  If they want to make it a longer or shorter vacation that is okay with me =)  I live in California and our guests are coming from all over (California, Washington, Oregon, Michigan, Indiana, etc -- hence the destination wedding!)

 

Happy planning and have a great time visiting!!!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
