Hi All: 

 

We just locked in at Generations Riviera Maya for February 2015.  Are there any others out there who are also getting married here?  Hopefully so!

 

I thought I would get a thread started to exchange ideas and help each other through the process since this is a new resort and we will be among their first weddings.  

 

2014 Brides - please chime in if you are getting married in 2014.

Thanks Tammy! 

 

Do you know if the Sky Deck has been finished or where exactly it is on the resort's property? I'm assuming maybe over one of the restaurants?  It wasn't finished yet when we were there in late January.

@@travelgal78 - thanks so much for the info!  We went attended a Bride's Dress Rehearsal in January when they were putting finishing touches on the resort to try to open it in February, so I've been trying to decide if I should plan a trip once the Sky Deck is done to see it and see where the various reception sites are.  Did you get to see any on your tour?   CONGRATS on your engagement & EDR wedding!  Hope your planning is going well! 


@@rtscent -CONGRATS on your engagement & locking in your date! I know you are super excited and probably relieved. I know I was!!  Have you started on your Save the Dates yet? I'm in the process of doing mine, though I feel a little unorganized because I've been sending as many as I can via email or facebook and ordered postcards to send to those family friends & relatives I don't have email for or they just don't check email much.   I'm so excited to have others posting here! LOL I felt like odd bride out! LOL

@@travelgal78 - thanks!  We have Marisol Vera.  I think we met her when we attended the BDR and she was really helpful. Keeping my fingers crossed the planning goes smoothly and I don't encounter some of the craziness others have experienced.  :)

@@travelgal78 when did you visit generations? 

 

@@girlinthecity97 , I emailed my STD's as well as mailed post cards to friends and family. I wanted to get them out so everyone had a technical year to plan and pay. My wedding planner from GRM is Valeria Martinez, so far so good. I'm also working with Destination Weddings to accept payment plans for my wedding party. Do you think I should do a site visit?

Hi @@rtscent - I found a site visit helpful in confirming whether or not the resort was the right fit for us & noting things I'd like to point out to my guests like ignoring the annoying travel people that attack you after getting your luggage & making your way to the shuttle. We initially were considering Azul Beach and Azul Sensatori but once we got there, we realized that Azul Beach was a definite no and fell in love with Generations & EDR.  I am hoping to do another visit to Generations so I can see the reception & private event sites and the sky deck because they weren't built when we were there. From that perspective, a site visit isn't necessary because I could do this when we come down for the wedding, but I'm "A type" and just want to see the resort again, try the food etc. LOL

 

I'm SO jealous of how on top of things you are!  Our wedding is next February and I JUST sent out Save the Dates electronically and am waiting for my limited number of post cards for those family friends and family members who don't use email or the internet much. Have you picked out your invitations? I thought I had that all down but I'm switching gears. I am hoping most of my guests will book within the next month or so, so I don't have to order a lot of invites and can therefore splurge since I am ordering fewer. I haven't had my caffeine so I hope this made sense! :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
