Help...Mexico wedding resort suggestions!

Recommended Posts

So I am looking to have a symbolic ceremony in Mexico June 2014 ...I hope to have 30-80 guests with kids. I want to get married on the beach and have a cocktail hour then dinner and reception on the beach or I am open to a semi private dinner at a restaurant or terrace. I am looking for guests to pay under $200 a night and also I don't want to Soren more than $15000 total for the wedding and trip for myself and my fiancé. I need suggestions on which resorts are the most up to date and can fit my needs...so far I am overwhelmed with where to go because there are so many options....help, please!

I know, I think everyone has been there. It is just so overwhelming! From my research, my decision was between NOW Jade Riviera Cancun and El Dorado Royale, I also toyed with the Dreams Cancun (because of the dolphins). In the end Now Jade won because it was the best offer. I know they have everything you are looking for but be aware that at night you are going to get attacked by bugs at the beach. So my recommendation would be to have the wedding reception at the terrace maybe, you have the beach feeling but no bugs. ;) Happy planning!

are you looking for an all inclusive or Condohotels/European plan hotel? If you see Piers's pics, the second one is from Gran Coral Beach Club... the beach around is very private and they have some apartments  you can rent... You can stay in all inclusive  like Nicole suggests too. In that case though there might be little privacy.... much easier and might be cheaper, though, to handle all people that way. Your budget is quite decent even if 80 people show up.

After you mentioned NOW Jade Cancun I decided to look into it. They do seem to have a really good value, and the resort is just beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, how much will your guests end up paying per night to stay at this hotel, or how much is it for you? Are you traveling with a pre-packaged vacation?

I am also getting married at the now jade and I completely understand about being overwhelmed!  It took me a couple months to research places but I also ended up using destinationsweddings.com to help me.  My guests are paying about $500 pp for 4 nights and $1000pp for 7 nights.  That is for the cheapest room.  The wedding packages I feel are great with the different options they offer and there locations for the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner are also all beautiful and you have different options.  We are getting married on the beach having cocktails at mix bar and reception dinner at carnival terrace!  Although im still in beginning planning stages Feel free to ask any questions,as I just confirmed my date last week!  Happy planning :)

Congrats on setting a date already! I'm thinking of visiting the Now Jade in April on our trip, the price for the rooms is quite reasonable. I'm also looking at the Gran Caribe real in Cancun so we'll see who offers the best for the least amount of money :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
