Picking A Resort That Will Be Good For Kids Too!

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are looking for a resort to have a destination wedding somewhere in the Cancun/Riviera Maya, Isla Mujeres area. We have been to Secrets Maroma Beach and are going to the Excellence Playa Mujeres this summer.  I know these are more expensive resorts and want to be respective to our guests and don't want to price them out of coming to our wedding.

 

I also have two boys, ages 4 and 6 (5 and & at the time of the wedding) and want this to be fun for them as well.  Can anyone recommend a kid friendly resort that won't break the bank and still has some luxury amenities???

Check out Sandos Caracol Eco Resort in Playa. We are having our wedding there. My travel agent highly recommended it for us because the wedding coordinator is good and there are lots of things to do there as well. There's a kids waterslide park and an adult one is under construction.

I just came back from my wedding (off resort) but we stayed at Sandos Caracol because they had a lot of things for the kids to do!  We had a total of 10 kids  coming to our wedding and they all had a blast between the pool, waterpark and the kids club.   100% recommended!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
