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 :(

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
