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!

Nicole,

 

Congrats! I feel the same way though... I have no clue of how to narrow down a budget. Any advice from you ladies is appreciated!

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!

Do you mean $1500 max budget that guest would pay for accommodations or $1500 you would pay for each person? The latter seems a lot.

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.

    • 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
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
