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?

    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
