I am planning a wedding for July 2011 and am having a really hard time trying to decide where to get married and I am hoping you can help. When I read the reviews, so many places sound absolutely wonderful but after a while I start to get overwhelmed. Heres a list of what our dream location would have. Is there any resort that fits most of them?
-All inclusive resort with clean updated rooms (an extra bonus would be a great suite for bride and groom)
-Great bars and lots of food...friends like to party!
-will have a few kids so it cant be an adult only resort
-Beautiful, safe beach with clean sand (nothing rocky and not known for big waves)
- an incredible, gigantic pool...a swim up bar in the pool would be fun
-Would love to have the wedding ceremony on a private, decorated gazebo or beautiful, private terrace that overlooks the beach. (not directly on the beach)...we are expecting about 75 guests
-We dont want other tourists walking around us around during the wedding ceremony so privacy is very important to us
-private cocktail hour maybe around a pool?
-Outdoor (or semi-outdoor) private dinner and reception with great views of the ocean. But again, not right on the beach.
-A dance floor and DJ
-If it rains, alternatives are still nice.
-flying out of Chicago and really dont want the flight to be over 5-6 hours
-but of course not terribly expensive.
Would you recommend anywhere particular?
Is there a place that has all this or am I just dreaming?
