Any Other Weddingmoon Brides?!

Recommended Posts

Hey! I'm also new to this site, I'm so glad I came across it in my desperate search for guidance! I recently got engaged while on vacation in Dominican Republic and am now trying to plan this wedding! We would love to do a destination wedding summer 2015, most likely July.  I'm in search of a resort - we've been looking in Riviera Maya - Dreams Riviera, Excellence Riviera Cancun, The Royal Playa del Carmen, and a couple more. I will be looking into the topics to get feedback from those who have experience with a destination wedding in Mexico! Hope to find a little support/guidance here!:-)

We are going with Excellence Riviera Cancun and I looked into all of them in that area!!

Awesome! What's your planning experience like so far?

 

I have ruled out Dreams because we would like adults only. I have reached out to Excellence, The Royal, Valentin, and Secrets Capri. Too many?? Haha, I think we are leaning towards Valentin but I will see if I hear back from the others.

 

What made you choose Excellence?

So far so good!  I am an event planner and used to do weddings and I really wanted mine to be simple.  That was one of the main reasons why we chose a destination wedding, was to make it simple, easier, less stress and to reduce costs.  

 

For us we wanted a bigger adults only resort.  We had just come back from Sandals in St. Lucia and had stayed at the smallest resort there, which was perfect for just to 2 of us, but we had visited the other 2 larger resorts.  Which was more of the vibe we wanted for our wedding and guests.  That was appealing about Excellence and I liked their wedding packages better.  I didn't want to have to add much in decor, we just wanted the beach and background to be our decor.  At some of the resorts we would have to add so much to the package, it wasn't as cost effective nor what I even wanted.  Oh and the 2 story, terrace ocean view room also pushed me over the edge!

I looked at almost every resort in that area.  The reviews also helped me along with pictures and the beach.  Some of the places had a rocky beach which I don't care for.  After 2 months of my own research I got a TA who also helped me and with her help I narrowed it down to 5 and then 3 choices, but for some reason Excellence was always my first choice.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
