    We are getting married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya in February and are expecting @ 70 guests. We picked the Riu because it is big enough to accommodate a large group, but not too big (like the Moon Palace or Iberostars) so we would still be able to find each other and feel like a group. The Riu is also kid friendly which was important to us for families traveling and is also a gorgeous resort.

    Good luck decided upon a resort!

        I am planning my 150 person wedding at Occidental Grand Xcaret. The gazebo area they suggest wasn't large enough (in my opinion). When I told the wedding coordinator she totally let me walk the grounds and pick my own place :) What's better than that?!?!

          That place looks great. Do you have any pictures of your actual reception set-up? Were you happy with the place? Is there anything you would have done differently?

          Many thanks,
          Melissa
          Here is a pic from my reception I'll try to post more later, I was very very happy with the place and I wouldn't change anything.. it was perfect to me!

            Have you looked at Puerto Morelos, just 15 mins. south of Cancun, away from tourists but very accessible for those who want to get to Cancun or Playa del Carmen. I've got 80-100 guests and am getting married at Paradisus Riviera Cancun resort, it's AI and kid friendly.
            It's part of the Sol Melia chain. It's fantastic.

              I'm having about 140 and our reception is going to be at the Gran Melia Cancun, which is also part of the Sol Melia chain. I've been really happy with them (especially their prices!) so far.

                TMarraty and mkdela,

                Thanks for the suggestions. Do either of you have photos of how and where the reception would be set up?

                Thanks,
                Melissa

                  Hi Melissa - unfortunately I don't have any photos yet of the set up. The reception is going to be under a large palapa near the pool, it is covered but will still be open-air which we thought was the best of both worlds.
                  If I get some pictures I will definitely pass them on!
