How Did You Decide On Your Venue??

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty set on a DW at an AI, most likely in the DR or Cancun.  I'm just wondering how you guys narrowed down which resort you chose for the venue??


I'm looking for something that would both be luxurious and affordable for my guests. We cannot do adults-only, we will have children there. I'm hoping for something that is around $250-300/night per couple. Also, it HAS to have good food. That's my number 1 concern, other than it looking pretty lol - I want my guests to enjoy the food both during my wedding and during their stays. 


I want the ceremony on the beach and likely do a dinner at one of the restaurants (to save money) and then have a 2-3 hour party afterwards (dancing, cake, etc). 


Our wedding budget is about $15k, but that should include our (bride/groom) stay, as well.  I'm really hoping to keep the wedding itself at $10k (including my bridal attire). 


I've been looking at Paradisus Palma Real, Majestic Elegance/Colonial, etc.  Anyone have any suggestions for resorts that will be around that price that are not adults-only and what made you choose your resort (what did you like about that resort that was different from the other ones)?


THANKS in advance, ladies!

I forgot to mention that I'm getting married in 2014, I don't want the weather to be too hot, so I'm thinking the weekend after Christmas 2014, right before NYE.  I understand this is high season, though.

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
