Hi, I'm New Here! 2015 Bride Planning In Riviera Maya, Mexico.

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

My name is Melissa, and I'm excited to be a part of the BDW community.

 

My fiancé and I have been engaged for 7 months now, and we just started to get into our planning. We visited Mexico this past December and after visiting a few hotels, we've decided on either Azul Fives or Grand Velas Riviera Maya for a wedding May of 201. 

 

We realize these are two very different hotels, price points and experiences overall, but we love them both. We've received contracts from both and find the process a bit overwhelming. If anyone has any advice regarding negotiations or recommendations on the properties, your point of view would be greatly appreciated.

 

Lastly, since we live in Chicago,we're also considering engaging a wedding planner. Does anyone have any recommendations.

 

Congrats to everyone and I appreciate your help,

Melissa

Hi! I live in Chicago too and I am planning a destination wedding in 2015. You need to start with a travel agency that specializes in destination weddings. I have contacts if you need them

@@MelV521 - CONGRATS!!! i love your wedding date - it's my birthday so i know your will undoubtedly be fab & amazing. :P jokes aside, i agree with @@Lilgabri03.  two friends had destination weddings and highly recommend hiring a TA that specialize in destination weddings. their ta's were able to help them negotiate, understand, and advocate on their behalf when situations arose between the resort and parent company they were initially working through (e.g., actual package items at the resort differed greatly from what they were told by the parent team etc...).

Good afternoon! We just got engaged Dec 22nd and I have already picked a date! January 31, 2015. I am torn between Now Sapphire, Dreams Rivera Cancun, and Azul Beach Resort. We will probably only have 20-25 guests to our wedding, so it will be small. Does anyone have any pros and cons to these resorts?
