Private wedding venue in the MR

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I recently got engage, and as we and his family live in Alberta and my family is from Quebec, we are planning a destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera for April 2014. We thinking we might be a group of 50-60... We are thinking of booking the rooms at the Barcelo, but do not like the idea of a wedding on a beach with strangers looking at us!! We are then looking for an other private venue to have the celebration, the supper and the dance. We are also looking to buy a house next year, so we do not want to spend big money. We are pretty simple people and really just want to have some good time with our guests. Anyone had a good experience at a private venue for a good price? Thanks ahead! :)

Hey Albertalou,

 

Congrats on your engagement and welcome on here.  As wedding planner here in the Riviera Maya, I am pleased to let you know that you would find a lot of private location in the area and I am happy to suggest them to you. What is a good price for you or Budget for the 50- 60 guests?

 

You can send me an email at weddingsinplayadelcarmen@gmail.com

 

I am happy to assist you finding your location.

 

Happy planning

Joyce

What a gem it was to find this thread! I am also in Alberta (grew up in New Brunswick) and my fiance and I have just begun this process as well! And although I'd love to have it on the beach itself, the idea of onlookers half dressed surrounding us doesn't feel ideal lol.

 

I am also looking for a private reception area for up to 50 people, so thanks for brining this up!

 

Joyce - thank you for your note, and I will be emailing you as well if that's ok! smile159.gif

I was looking for responses from anyone. Im trying to find an off site venue in MR area and feel like ive only found 4 or 5 places. Its tough. I cant wait to hire a coordinator. :)

I think that part is key---hiring a local coordinator you trust will help you find the best options for you. What are some of your criteria for a wedding venue?

We are just all about having a private ceremony and reception.  We want to feel like we're the only ones in the world at that moment, like we decided to have a wedding at a well hidden local gem on the beach.  We are both very laid back and down to earth people but we do want our guests to have an experience of a lifetime.  We don't mind if its on a resort or at a beach club.  We have about 30 people, so probably would be cheaper to do off site.
