    Hello All!  

     

    I just got engaged about a week ago and although I am planning a destination wedding for April 2017 I wanted to get started on my research! I know a year and a half is a long ways away however I would really love to give my guests a year or more notice to save up! We are anticipating a larger amount of guests (possibly 50+) so my questions are: 

     

    What are the best family friendly resorts? (I want everyone to have the option to bring their children if they wish but I also don't want a complete kiddy land)

     

    Which resorts offer a "preview"?- my fiance and I were thinking of travelling to Mexico possibly in February to scope a few places out if any offered deals specifically for this reason. 

     

    And which resorts are best for larger groups? 

     

    We are thinking Playa/Riviera Maya area however I am flexible and really anywhere from Isla Mujeres to a little past Playa will be considered.

     

    Thank you so much for your help!

     

     

    Future Mrs. K  :)

    welcome to BDW! Usually we try to qualify clients and help find the best resort that fits their checklist of wants.

     

    To answer some of your questions:

     

    Hard Rock and Karisma hotels offer sites visits for reduced stays.  If you book the karisma one, and then book your wedding date, you can get $500 back off Food and beverage for your wedding.

     

    For larger groups, the larger resorts are best as the boutique resorts will have limited inventory and may not have the space to hold large groups (rooms as well as events)

     

    Most of the resorts also offer a reduced rate for your stay for site visits as well. If you would like more info, feel free to click the link in my siggy or email me at info@wrighttravelagency.com and we can answer more of your questions.

          Welcome!!

          I would say that the better options for family are situated in the Riviera Maya. These resorts are big and very acommodating for the family.

           

          Here are some ideas shot in Riviera Maya:

              the Azul resorts are amazing for weddings with children! and they have a "bride's dress rehearsal", which I went to. it is an amazing way to see the properties first-hand and really easy any worries of not really knowing what something looks like!
