2016 Wedding At Cancun Mexico. Need Opinions On The Resorts!

Recommended Posts

Hi all brides to be! I am very excited that I am going to have a destination wedding.  I just love the beach at Cancun after the visit last summer. Ocean water is just unreal...it's the most beautiful beach I've seen so far.  As you all know, planning is a long and tedious process and I am already being indecisive on the resorts. I have few resorts in mind and I would like to hear your opinions. Whether you heard, been or had a wedding at those resorts, please provide some insights! 

 

I would like to have the ceremony on a terrace, gazebo or lawn (just not on the beach) with estimated guests 25-30. I haven't been to any of these resorts only done research.  

 

1. Iberostar Cancun

I know this is a big resorts and has a lot of amenities.  The room cost is reasonable.  However, the hotel seems older?  Also, I NEED WEDDING CONTACT for this hotel.  I emailed them for the wedding detail and got no response. Brides, please provide if you have their contact!

 

2. Beach Palace 

This is the smallest and most expensive of the 4 resorts.  Looks like a lot of people had/are going to have their weddings hold here. The sky terrace just looks amazing. 

 

3. ME Cancun

I actually couldn't find a lot of wedding information online for this resort.  Is there a reason why people don't have their weddings here? Hotel looks modern and nice.  I got wedding information from their sales agent and the wedding package looks reasonable. 

 

4. Fiesta Americana Condesa 

This looks like a big resort too, very comparable to Iberostar.  One thing concerns me is their food...they don't look like they have Asian restaurant onsite? Majority of my group, including me and my fiance are Asian, and it may be a problem if they don't serve Asian food at all :P .  

 

We are planning to do a site visit in June. I would like to narrow down to 2 or 3 and really take a look.  Please help!! 

If you happen to have pictures/info please send to me at kuolingchung@yahoo.com.  Thank you all!

We are having ours at Beach Palace and extremely happy with our choice. We have been to the resort before and we love it there.. It is small, but that's sometimes a really good thing. We have stayed at the sister resort (Moon Palace) and it's MASSIVE..also a beautiful resort, but for the wedding we wanted something more intimate.. plus the beach at Beach Palace is perfect. We are getting married on the sky terrace and i'm really excited about it because I was a bit worried about the privacy if we were to be married directly on the beach. We are having 30 guests :) I can also say that Beach Palace probably has the best food out of any of the resorts i've stayed at in Mexico in the five times i've been to Cancun.

Congrats and welcome to the site!! You've definitely picked a good place to ask for opinions! You'll get a ton of them here and the ladies are always willing to share!

 

You have a pretty comprehensive list of resorts. There are reviews available here for all of them. Just go up to the top to resort reviews and you'll get both good and bad experiences, so good info to make your decision.

 

I can't stress strongly enough the value of having a good travel agent. They will become your new bestie as you go through your planning journey and will help you with your resort decision based on what you want, what you would like for your guests, the time of year, your price point and a whole lot of other factors. Absolutely Beach Palace is one that's favoured by brides here and it has good reviews, but a good travel agent will be the best person to help you out with what will likely be the biggest decision of your destination wedding!!

 

Good luck and happy planning!!!

Hi,

 

Congratulations on your wedding! I am also getting married in Cancun next year in June. I have just booked the Moon Palace and I am in the process of deciding on a venue for my wedding etc.

 

We chose the Moon Palace because the resort looks amazing and has brilliant reviews we also have two children who are 9 and 7 years and we wanted somewhere with lots going on for them aswell!

 

I am a bit disappointed as I have heard the beach there is not suppose to be great as there is lots of seaweed. We are now thinking of maybe the Tucan Gazebo!

 

Could anybody please advise me on how many working days you have to be in Cancun before you can marry I keep getting conflicting advice. In the paper work that the hotel have sent me it says 4 days although I have just emailed the to confirm because Thomsons and Thomas Cook have both said 5 days.

 

I look forward to hearing from all the Cancun 2016 Brides sharing advice and tips!

^^ Are you doing a symoblic ceremony or a legal ceremony? Symoblic requires 2 business days,  legal requires 4 (for paper work and what not)  

We are just doing symoblic, as we want to avoid all the paper work and blood tests required in Mexico. We will get legally married in Canada.

@@kuoling . Giving my +1 for Iberostar.

I had guests that stayed and would not stop bragging about how beautiful the resort was.

Hi Katie,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

We are planning a legal ceremony over there but I have been reading more about people getting married legally at home and then having a symbolic ceremony once in Mexico and didn't know you could even do that until recently.

 

Does it work out cheaper if you do it that way round or is it just the same?

 

I have spoken again to the hotel and they have confirmed that it is 3 full days!

 

When do you get married?

 

Regards

 

Louise

    • 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.
    • 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?
