Need suggestion on Wedding Venue

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm new to this site. I had my heart set on Turks and Caicos, but after finding how expensive it is and how much hotel cost and  my guests couldn't afford it I've decided to look into Playa De Carmen or the surrounding area. I'm not sure where to begin to find the ideal venue. I'm looking  preferably first weekend in March 2014, but I'm flexible. Anyone who have gotten married or attended a wedding during that time. How is the weather in March? I am looking anywhere from 20-50 guests. I am looking for a great venue with great views but I would need affordable accommodations for my guests. Any suggestions?

I don't have any specific suggestions, but I would suggest checking out tripadvisor.  That's where I got most of my information to help me decide.  Nothing like reviews to tell it to you straight :-)  Also, you may want to pay close attention to the week that you decide to go so that you don't get too many spring breakers, unless you'll have the fun party crowd that would like that.

Hi Violet!

 

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your upcoming wedding! Choosing the resort is the hardest part - but there are many resources out there to help you with this :) I would recommend looking at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Azul Beach, Azul Sensatori and the Grand Sunset Princess as starting points! We would be happy to further assist if you would like to PM us your contact details to dicuss your wedding plans further!

 

March weather is beautiful - sunny, warm and not overly humid.

 

Happy Planning!

Thank you for your feedback. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I got quotes from Hotel La Reve and Maheka Beach Resort and it appears they all require a certain amount of rooms booked in order to hold the wedding there. That is where I have a problem for I don't know exactly how many guests I will have and I'm not sure if all my guests can afford those rates or want to stay there. Can anyone offer any tips on this? I need help to find an ideal venue!

I found that this was more common when trying to reserve boutique style hotels.  I was very fortunate that the location I chose didn't require any $ or bookings to schedule my date. Good luck!!

My date is 12/13/13 at Marival Residences & World Spa in Puerto Vallarta.  Most of the places that I looked at required a deposit or a room block with a deposit for each room.  Marival fortunately didn't require any of that.  Here is their trip advisor page (I used trip advisor to analyze most of the places I was interested in).  Let me know if you have any questions!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
