All-inclusive resorts are not created equal. When choosing an all-inclusive resort to host your Caribbean or Mexico wedding make sure to choose one with a high rating. The difference between a 3 & 4 star rating can really affect the quality of the food & liquor served at the resort. I always recommend at least a 4 star resort when booking a wedding location. Remember you guests will be dining here.
Five star or luxury all-inclusive properties offer great variety in dining selections. The Royal Cancun, an adult’s only 5 star luxury resort, hosted a mock wedding feast for agents on a wedding trip I took last year. We attended a gourmet five course diner complete with wine pairing. It was an elegant affair. The food presentation was fabulous and & every course delicious. I was very impressed.
Since that visit I feel confident in recommending The Royal Cancun. I have booked it for destination wedding groups & honeymooners.

I think Scott from easytravelpad.com is accurate with his review of Sandals White House Jamaica.
It is a great honeymoon resort but more specifically it’s meant for couples who want to get away from it all. Sandals White House is a luxury resort on Jamaica’s stunning south coast. The resort is elegant with gourmet food & drink & an atmosphere made for relaxing.
When I stayed at Sandals White House for a wedding familiarization trip last spring I had my own concierge walk out suite. I opened the sliding doors onto a quiet beach. It was heavenly. In the evening I had one swimming pool all to myself. For the honeymooners, however, who want access to nightlife & authentic markets this would not be a good fit.

Yesterday I reviewed the El Dorado Royale Resort & spa. Today I turn my gaze to her equally romantic but more intimate( 280 jr suites) & secluded sister property the El Dorado Seaside Suites located on Kantenah Bay south of Puerto Aventuras on the Riviera Maya. This resort is about 1 hour south of the Cancun airport.
This 5 star luxury adult’s only all-inclusive honeymoon resort has a rustic ambiance. Surround by 280 unspoiled acres the El Dorado Seaside Suites appeals to the honeymoon couple who want the “get away from it all” feeling. It made Forbes.com Annual List of Most Romantic Hotels in 2006. With beach beds lying on white sand surrounded by coconut palms & a charming beach front wedding gazebo, the El Dorado Seaside Suites looks post card perfect.
The beach is a little rocky but that’s because of the coral reef located close to the resort. The coral though makes for incredible snorkeling. All five restaurants are ala carte with great service. Once again the landscaping is colorful and inviting. I didn’t want to leave.

Getting married in Mexico is really quite easy. Deluxe all inclusive resorts take care of all the legal requirements without the bride & groom even leaving the resort.
Getting married in Mexico can be very glamorous. Seasoned wedding coordinators create lavish or very simple unique weddings celebrations. Beach weddings are very popular but some couple still prefer the beach side chapel.
Getting married in Mexico is a great deal. Many couples choose Mexico weddings because financially it is a good move. They can afford to marry & honeymoon for a faction of the cost of a traditional wedding in the states.
I always remind my bride & groom that people are traveling a great distance to be at your wedding so you best put on a bit of a show. And if you can afford it plan a group excursion, a round of golf, deep sea fishing, a boat cruise etc…;

What type of couple chooses a Disney Cruise destination wedding? According to Jermone, the wedding coordinator for the Disney Wonder, he has worked with couples from 18 to 86 years old. So age is not a factor. Being young at heart, enjoying children (there are many on a Disney cruises) & appreciating the type of magic that makes Disney, Disney are perquisites.
Currently, I am cruising the Mexican Riviera on the Disney Wonder. It is a splendid ship. While immersed in the magic of Disney with my family, I realize what a great destination wedding and honeymoon vacation a Disney Cruise is to the right client. The Disney Wonder is immaculate & the service is charming. There are venues & attractions for all ages & interests. If you like the Disney characters & movies this is the place to see them all together. With the 7 night Mexico Riviera itinerary you have 2 full days at sea prior Puerto Vallarta. A perfect time for the cruise wedding.

Britain’s Royal wedding between Prince William & Kate Middleton April 29th is certainly generating wedding talk. This is good for me because my company, Time Travels Inc., has embraced the romance travel market. Those traveling to London to witness part of the pageantry may consider themselves attending a destination wedding. Whichever way you look at it romance travel is hot.
People get married, take honeymoons & celebrate anniversaries in good and bad times. The ease and convenience of getting married in Mexico & the Caribbean has made destination wedding travel popular. The fact that you can have a romantic beach wedding and a luxury honeymoon & still spend less than a wedding at home makes choosing a destination wedding attractive.
If you are couple looking for the best destination wedding locations. Give me a call I know I can help.

Getting married in a beautiful and romantic destination is what every engaged couple dreams of. In addition to making all your dreams come true, a destination wedding is also:
Most resorts have full-time, onsite wedding planners, arranging every aspect of your special day and leaving you nothing to do but relax.
Having your family and special friends around you in a beautiful destination will create a celebration you’ll never forget.
Destination weddings are often less expensive than traditional weddings due to their smaller size. In addition, you’re already in the destination where you plan to spend your honeymoon, and many resorts offer special complimentary weddings or affordable wedding packages. You’ll also spend a lot less by choosing an all-inclusive resort where much of the food and beverage expense is part of the lodging costs that will be assumed by your guests. You can also save more by having your wedding during the slow season in the destination you choose.
With many of today’s families spread out throughout the United States, they’ll have to travel to your wedding anyway, so why not have them travel to a beautiful and fun destination instead!?

This past summer a client called me about planning a honeymoon getaway in Cozumel. They had been looking on line & found what they perceived to be a perfect honeymoon resort. I knew that the resort was a decent 4 star property but a very average honeymoon resort. Instead of expressing my opinion on the best honeymoon ideas I preceded to ask them why they chose the resort & the destination. I also knew that it was low season & many upscale all-inclusive resorts offer great rates & extra resort amenities to attract guests.
Once I discovered that money was really the motivating factor not the location or the resort I was able to offer them the best honeymoon ideas to fit their dream & budget. Earlier that day I had come across an unbelievable honeymoon offer at the El Dorado Resort & Spa on the Riviera Maya through MLT Vacations. The resort was offering a free room upgrade, a honeymoon package, which included a romantic dinner for two on the beach, & a two for one airfare through Delta. I sent the info on the resort & explained that this was truly an amazing offer. Once they took a look at the property, the price and all that was included in the package they were sold.
I always call my client after they return from vacation to ask about their trip & accommodations. They loved it!!
