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?

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
