Thank you all for the warm welcome! I am so excited! We are pretty sure we want the wedding to be in Mexico, its just deciding where in Mexico we want to have it! i don't want a resort that is so gigantic (like Iberostar in RM sp?) that our guests have to walk miles or ride a golf cart to get @ it. Also, do you have any recommendations on what time of year is best in Mexico? I hear summer is $$$ due to tourist season & then Aug-Nov is hurricane season..is that correct? You guys are life savers, being apart of this forum takes alot of stress of my shoulders now!

 

Thank you!

Welcome, Laura! Ok, if you want Mexico, there are lots of good options that are decently close to Colorado --- Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Las Caletas, and then if you wanna go a little further south theres Ixtapa and Acapulco on the west coast. I'm pretty confident you should be able to get direct flights to all of those from Colorado. If you want east coast Mex, there's fun places like Playa del Carmen, Cancun and the like.

If you're looking for places that aren't huge all-inclusive resorts, Las Caletas is really cool where AnnR got married (based on the photos I've seen from everyone around here, but I'm sure they'll vouch!). There are also smaller resorts, or resorts that arent AI in just about every location that can accomodate both small and large groups.

Rainy season begins mid to late Aug on the west coast. Late Oct and Nov are generally pretty safe -- if it rains, its not an all day affair. Give us some more details about what you are looking for, how many guests etc etc and we will help you come up with some options that match what you're looking for! I can only personally tell you about costs in Cabo, but May-July is pretty pricey -- our group room rate for Aug 9th is HALF the price someone else I know got for their group in May. Kate (LALA) could probably tell you more about the Cabo prices in December, she just got married there.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
