Hey everyone! We just got engaged!!  :D

 

We immediately thought of Cancun and saw so many pictures of stunning Indian weddings. Google searches showed so many Indian / South Asian wedding packages (Dreams has two different ones - Dulha and Dulhan Package and Shaadi Package for example).

 

It looks like a lot is included, but the prices are so high and it's hard to know what the Indian food will taste like. Also it's a little annoying but it says that the extra cost per person above the 50 or 100 included is decided by each resort. Why can't they just be consistent?

 

Anyways, anyone have any tips or pointers? I have reached out to a few agents but they haven't been all that helpful... We are thinking of December 2018 if that's helpful!

Hi there! Congratulations on your engagement :) You have definitely come to the right place to find a ton of insight, advice and resources for planning your destination wedding!

 

Cancun/Riviera Maya is a wonderful destination for a South East Asian/Indian wedding -- they are quote popular in that area. I know you mentioned having reached out to a few agents but not receiving much help, but I would highly suggest contacting the BDW Travel Agents -- they are the official agency for this forum. These agents specialize in destination weddings and have helped plan Indian destination weddings so they have a lot of experience and insight in this area. They will also be able to give you suggestions on resorts that cater to larger wedding groups to get your best the packages for your group, including who offers great Indian food! The Wright Travel agents actually attended a conference in the area specializing in Indian weddings, so they have tried the food and can give you honest opinions on what to expect :) You can contact them HERE! or visit the agency's website: www.wrighttravelagency.com

 

In addition, make sure to check out the articles with regards to Indian destination weddings on this site, here's that section! These articles may give you some additional guidance as you plan your celebration. https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/tags/ccs/Indian+Weddings/

 

Hope that helps!!!  :D

Thanks for the advice! I checked out the articles and they were definitely helpful (so cool that there are so many vendors that have Indian decorations there!). I was hoping to find a more comprehensive comparison of hotels, perks, and what each specialize in as this will be a larger event and we are definitely on a budget, so want to get the most bang for our buck. I found an agency called ShaadiCancun that specializes in Indian weddings there and had all the info for budget breakdown and package comparison by resort.

 

The good news is they think my budget is totally do-able so hopefully I'll be a Cancun bride soon :) 

 

I'm still torn on doing December 2018 - any brides have experience with weather and suggestions on the best time of year do a wedding?

    • Hello Vernicula - Congratulations on your engagement! I agree with everything MarieSam previously posted. One of the most important things when choosing an agent is there experience and their level of  expertise with destinations and resorts.  All of the Wright Travel agents have years of experience working with wedding groups, we have built excellent relationships with many resorts and we have visited, toured and stayed at many resorts in several different  destinations.  Email is one way of communication so you have everything in writing and can access this a anytime, but phone calls can be just as useful.

Some couples prefer to only communicate via email and others also want that reassuring voice with a phone call. We can do whatever works best for each coiple.  Please let us know what questioned

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
