Mexico Wedding! Where to start??? :-D

Recommended Posts

Hello to all the lovely brides and brides-to-be (like me)! 

 

I just got engaged a couple months ago, and we've just decided to venture off to Mexico for our wedding! I couldn't be happier, yet so confused and overwhelmed at the same time! 

 

We have probably around 30 people attending (and some little ones), so we are looking for a family-oriented, all-inclusive, that is also fun and exciting for the younger guests. 

 

I am torn between Playa Del Carmen (The Iberostar Grand is a contender, but not the one I don't think) and Cancun (specifically Moon Palace and Now Sapphire are contenders, but I think there might be better??). 

 

My biggest worry is having random people hanging around the ceremony and in the background of my pictures. I want the event to be somewhat private, yet outside in nature. I am looking for a resort with a separate area for weddings. I would love a dance floor on the beach, and perhaps a beach bonfire? ;-) How amazing? 

 

If anyone has been researching, and has come across any all-inclusive resorts that offer such, can you please share? :-D 

 

Also, if you have any experiences at the resorts mentioned above, I'd love to hear!

 

Any tips would be greatly appreciated! 

 

Thanks in advance and happy Weddings!!! :-)

Hi,

 

Congrats on your engagement and wedding planning, I would recommend NOW JAde which is an excellent resort. If you want privacy, that will be a little hard considering there really isn't much privacy with a destination wedding. But if privacy is what you are aiming for you could stay at a great all inclusive resort and have your wedding at an off resort venue such as Blue Venado.

 

Happy Planning!!!!

Welcome to BDW!


 


A good place to start is to read the destination wedding in Cancun/Riviera Maya reviews .  You can read about food quality, see pictures, etc.  


 


You might want to try one of the BDW Travel Agents.  We Specialize in Destination weddings and are very familiar with Mexico Weddings.  I got married at Dreams Los Cabos  :).  You can contact us HERE!


 


We could def. help you narrow down the 3 resorts that you mentioned as we are very familiar with them.  They have pros and cons like some resorts offer better group and wedding amenities than others.


 


You can read some of our reviews here: Wright Travel Agency ~ Destination Wedding Specialist Reviews HERE

From what I have read, NOW Jade has better reviews.  Their wedding packages are also much better from what I remember.  Happy planning!

    • 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
