Help Making A Decision

Recommended Posts

It's definitely overwhelming when you're trying to decide where to go. I would have loved to do Bahamas or Aruba, but if you are concerned about the price - those two won't be the most economical.

Mexico is a great option.. reliable food, nice beaches and good prices as well. My guests will be paying $1663 per person and we're staying at Beach Palace in Cancun.

I currently am working now with a Travel Agent and working narrowing down the locations. We have both agreed on Mexico. and Now its selecting from the hundreds there .. haha! I really am pulling closely to the Now Resorts, Dreams Rivera... basically the Rivera Maya area.. I really don’t like teh cancun area with the tall buildings. I want more of a beach relaxing area and  be able to go out and venture to the bigger party areas.

 

Anyone have details on the difference between Now Jade and Now Sapphire? I even saw that Now Jade allows outside vendors for a 65 day pass versus Now Sapphire charges 300. Making my decision around photography as well. its super important to me.

 

Also- Im going to Mexico in Sept. for my Friends wedding and was thinking to take 1/2 a day and go view some resorts. Anyone know how that would go? Any fees i may need to look into? maybe speaking about that with my agent?  Does anyone believe i should just book one now prior to looking to atleast secure a date at a location and have the ball rolling for my guest?

 

Thank you!!!

You should narrow it down to your top five places and then contact them regarding weddings. Set out a list of questions you want to ask them. Some resorts are 'better' at weddings than others.

@racht33 - Even though we had already locked in our resort last summer, we did a site visit in November because we were in Cozumel and figured it would be a good idea. We coordinated it with our wedding coordinator and we didn't have to pay for any sort of day pass. We didn't eat there or anything, though. We just got a tour and discussed some wedding things. I'm sure you can just contact the respective WCs and they'll arrange for you to visit.

    • 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.
