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, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
