May 2014 Bride and am so lost!

Recommended Posts

Any advice on a resort, dj, flowers, reception, etc. I am trying to pick a resort and was looking at the Now resorts.  Are there any other brides that could help ease my mind and let me know what most likely I should plan to spend with having the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception dinner, dj and also a rehearsal dinner. I have not seen any info on the rehearsal dinner. We just started looking but I am so overwhelmed by everything. We also have two children daughters will be 7 and 3 in 2014 when we will be getting married.  Thanks for any help.  We really haven't created a budget yet because we have no clue what the round about we are looking at!!!! We will be having at most 35-40 people.  I have been looking at this site for a awhile now and figured it was time for more to post something to get some more help.  This site is awesome!!!

Hi! and congrats on your engagement! I'm like your twin bride! I'm also getting married in 2014 (May), in Mayan Riviera and also have two kids that will be 7 and 3 on 2014 lol. Only difference my oldest is a boy.

I'm going through the exact same dilemma, but I'm very close to making my final decision on which resort will be choosing. We really like Azul Sensatori, i suggest you check it out. It's got various beautiful ceremony options, and it's a great resort for kids and families.

 

Other then that, my best advice is to just focus on finding the resort. Once booked, you can start working with the resort wedding coordinator and i'm sure they'll walk you through everything.

 

Good luck!

Many of the brides here have mentioned budgeting an average amount of $1500/per guest. Of course, this is affected by which resort and options you choose, but could be a good starting point to work from, if you're starting off from "scratch". 

Wishing you all the best with your research, planning process and happy journey ahead.......relax and enjoy......CHeers!

I imagine she means 1500 to budget for travel/accom that GUESTS would pay. Although some b&g's have to pay for certain family members to come, depending on their situation.
