Need Help! Mexico 2017 Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone! 

We finally decided on doing a destination wedding. There are sooo many hotels to choose from in Mexico. What do  you  guys recommend? Around 50-60 people would like private ceremony not on the sand preferably, budget friendly. Thank you  for everyone's advice in advance!

We are all a little bit bias towards our own resorts I think.

 

We chose Azul Fives in Riviera Maya because of the Sky Deck. We also did not want a beach wedding and as soon as I saw these photos we fell in love. The Sky Deck costs $1800 to rent for the reception and then another $15 per plate on top of the food you select. For this view, we felt it was worth it.

 

The resort itself isn't cheap but if you are flexible with which month you get married, you can get affordable rates. The Sky Deck itself holds 200 people so you will be able to fit your party no problem.

@@ashhtayy thanks doll!! i looked at that resort also  its goreous but I am trying to be budget friendly for guests as well.. I love that sky rooftop but I thought its going to  be too windy and stuff idk maybe I am being too picky.. so besides paying for the package you  had to pay per plate and per additional guest(i am assuming they have the standard 20-40) you had to pay $1800 + $5 plate?

@@karinaL have you looked at Barcelo and Paradisus playa delcarmen?  Are you working with a Travel Agent?

 

Also check out the video with some tips.  

 

 

Happy Planning!

Awesome keep us posted on what you decide on.

 

I have a few brides at Barcelo, and in case you end up with this resort. I thought their Mint breeze package was reasonable.

@@karinaL Being budget friendly to our guests was a top priority as well. We are in Canada and our guests from Ontario are paying $1560 and the others from BC are paying $1730 for 7-nights. Our guests were very happy with their prices.

 

At our resort we pay for all of the food. We are paying $36 per plate which includes 4 hours of open bar and then another $15 on top of the $36 because the dinner is served on the Sky Deck. There are cheaper options for dinner (and more expensive!) and to avoid the extra $15pp you could have dinner anywhere other than the pier or the Sky Deck.

    • 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.
