      Jackie,

      Can you e-mail me the pictures of the Occidental Grand Xcaret that you have. I would love to see them because I am having a really tough time deciding between the Moon Palace, Dreams Cancun & Tulum, Riu Palace, Azul and the Occidental. This is so hard because I am going to have to make a blind decision without visiting first because I have to book the date in the next couple of days!!! Ahhhhhh! : )

          Edyta,
          Yes we are for almost sure 99% positive that we are going with the Occidental. Honestly Dreams Tulum and Cancun keep lingering in the back of my head as a safer choice. But the Occidental is everything I want and need from a resort I'm just not sure how their weddings are! Resort wise their great but there is so little about their weddings. I have this big fear that we will get down there for our site visit and I wont think that the reception site is pretty enough or blah blah blah. Oh well, we are going to need to book the wedding date before our site trip anyway so I'm sure we will just go with the Occidental and hope for the best!

              I would also love to see this pics. I am also having a tough time deciding. And i agree, the hotel is exactly what i am looking for, but I cant get a good idea of what a wedding will look like. i am also having a hard time hearing back. I am planning a wedding for the summer of 2008, so I guess I am not top priority, but I still feel i should be regardless. ugg E mail: shanaynayf1@yahoo.com. Thanks

                This may be very hard to do, and probably the reason that most brides to be end up choosing another resort. But, if you are dead set on the Occidental Grand Xcaret being your wedding resort than you need to be able to run with the fact that Edith the WC at the resort just simply does not make any bride more than six months out from there wedding date a priority.

                Having said that, please rest assure that I have spoken to one bride to be that is having a wedding this spring and she has said that Edith has been great the closer it gets to her wedding date. I have also read a couple of reviews about this resort from brides that have had there wedding there and they both mention the fact that they had high anxiety in the early stages of there planning but everything ended up wonderfull.

                I am planning a wedding at this resort and every so often I have to remind myself of these things. Because I go off on a "oh my god how am I supposed to plan a wedding when I cant get a hold of anybody tangent" .

                I am also doing a site visit in September 2007 so if you do choose this resort than I could get any specific questions you have answered. And I will definitly be posting about a 1000 and 1 pics from the visit.

                Hope this helps a little.

                  I know it doesn't help right now, but we are getting married at the Occidental Allegro Playacar on January 25th. I'll be sure to let you know how the wedding portion goes for sure and give any advice that I can!

                    Those pics give a good idea of how a wedding looks. And its reassuring to hear that you have heard from previous brides from the OGX...Im anxious to know so many details...and I am in the early stages so I guess patience is the only thing I have to keep in mind. Its also so hard when I have so many guests that think we are crazy for doing this...
