    Okay, this may show how truly new I am to all this, but what is the best way to plan your site visit? We want to do the wedding most likely in Mexico, but its not 100% for sure. Do I first pick the dates we want to go & then contact the resorts we want to visit & schedule a mtng
    I appreciate all your help! This forum is such a lifesaver!

      If you are flexible on dates- and have a bit of time before the wedding I'd contact a TA with the resorts that you are interested in and have them set up the meetings for you. They may also be able to steer you to resorts that fit what you are looking for that you haven't even thought of!

      If you are set on a date- contact the resorts that your TA recommended :)) and make sure that the date is available and then get everything scheduled. Keep in mind though that some of the dates and time slots fill quickly and that most resorts will not hold a specific wedding slot without a non refundable deposit.

        Hi! I've done two site visits. The first went not so well but the second went great so we must've learned something. First off, yes I definitely think it's a good thing to make appointments! Also, if you're planning on having an outside wedding coordinator look into this first. If you pick one without meeting them, set up an appointment with them first. They may be able to take you around to all the different places. This is what we did. We met with two different WC's and they were great! They showed us around only like a local could. We really only spent two days doing this. We also had a list of recommendations on places to eat to check out possible rehearsal/welcome dinner spots and tried to hit as many of these on our own as possible. Try and get out and explore the city some too if you can. Check out liquor stores, Walmart (if they have one), etc. and try and learn your way around a bit so that you can aid your guests when they arrive.

        Hope this helps! :)

        We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
