I may be the only groom on this site - I am away at sea with the Canadian Navy and my wife-to-be is busy with our son so I thought I'd do a little research.
We live in Halifax, but have guests coming from Toronto, Ottawa, Winnepeg and of course Halifax.
We have a 2 year old son (3 at the time of travel) and may of our guests have chlildren ages 2-10 so we would like something fun for them.
We want our wedding to be something our son thinks of (at least for a while since he will be 3) and remembers as a really fun experience.
We have decided a little kids water park is a must.
Our options so far:
Grand Bahia Principe Coba/Tulum
Grand Bahia Principe Torquesa
Memories Splash Punta Cana
Barcelo Maya Colonial
*Moon Palace and Iberostar Cancun*
I star the last two off because although we adore them they are much outside our guests price range - if we go to expensive our son will be the only kid their and then it isnt really worth it to be so extravagent for kids.
We have been working with a TA for 2 months now and things have started to go smoother but she is on a trip to the Rockies and then RIviera Maya (not any resorts we want though) and hasnt been responding - she did say that would happen though.
Our budget for guests was approx 1600 and although some already fit that bill - we are still having trouble deciding (the more expensive ones always seem nicer)
We want to book Barcelo but it is 1800 and our hoping our one time price adjustment plus the free adults( every 8th form our TA) can bring the price down but we dont want to rely on the price adjustment - i know we are going in the high season but from Halifax there isnt much other options and it is the day we started dating so we wanted to keep it an ongoing anniversary.
Any help please.... Groom in need here...
