It was hard for us because we completely fell in love with Roatan, it truly is paradise and we're actually considering it for our honeymoon or for a vow renewal but it will always remain dear to our hearts. We're planning on putting down a deposit this fall for our date of June 25, 2015, we couldn't be more excited!! Now just to decide which resort is the most affordable and the best fit for our family. Hopefully we'll have STDs out by January. 

that's a hard decision to make :( Punta Cana is absolutely beautiful.. we had to make the same type of decision because we wanted Punta Cana but the resort we fell in love with was just too expensive and I didn't feel comfortable asking my family to spend that much... we have decided to have our wedding at a beautiful resort in Cuba and we will hopefully get to Punta cana for our honeymoon.. that way it is only us spending the money and not everyone else. Good luck with the resort search!! It was fun and stressful all at the same time.

Omg I know how much you were looking forward to Roatan! What a tough decision! sad.gif But I'm sure it was for the best and your wedding will be beautiful nonetheless! Good luck!

It was a very tough decision, by the time we'll be married we'll have been engaged for five years so it was so important that we not have to settle for a destination but we actually really fell in love with the Jellyfish before Roatan so it's not a bad substitute.

Hi everyone,

 

We are planning to get married some time in 2015 and have our wedding somewhere between Cancun and Tulum. We have been to Dominican Republic and fell in love with the Caribbean waters. I always say it's never too early to plan something especially when there's a tight budget involved.

 

Thank you everyone for sharing your knowledge and resources on this forum.

For sure! It's definitely never too early! It just gives you more time to check out your options and really find ways to cut costs and find what you really want! happy planning!

I am right on the same boat as you & trying to pick somewhere in the same area! I've been crazy busy at work so I haven't been able to research much but thankfully I have some time!

Hello Ladies!

 

Welcome and Congrats on an early start, As wedding planner in Riviera Maya, we have so many beautiful resorts, but if you keep few points in mind it might help you in choosing thee resort for you,

 

Decide if you want a an all inclusive hotel or a Family friendly?

Do you want to be in town where everything is happening or rather somewhere quite?

Is pure white sandy beach important or can you have partly rocky?

Do prefer a resort with a mexican feel or something different?

Obviously price will play a major factor too, check if the resort offer any group rates.

 

Feel free to ask for advice or any help and we will be happy to help.

Happy Planning

Joyce

Thanks so much for the helpful tips! I shortlisted a few AI resorts but it's hard to budget at this time since prices for 2015 won't be out until probably spring 2014. A TA I spoke with noticed that prices are rising by $200-300 per person for 2014. So I don't even know if our DW wedding will ever happen anymore. I live in Vancouver so it doesn't help that we live so far away from Cancun :(

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
