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! : )
    let me know what you decide. I'm in the same situation!!! I want a more contemporary style so I was leaning toward Moon Palace or Dreams Cancun. My twin sister said Dreams Tulum is nice but the night life sucks. I know the Palace resorts do free excursions which my mom seems excited about. When are you getting married? Do you know how fast these place book up?

      Jackie, after looking at the pictures, are you planning to do an inside or outside reception? I like the ceremony setup, and I like the outside reception with the blue tables the best.

        I think the outside looks the prettiest too. The inside/outside beach house one looks good too but I would need to dress it up a little with some lighting maybe. The only concern I have with the outside is that I really didnt want to be walking on sand the whole time. But the beach house wich in a way is cute because you are covered but still outside, it just looks very drab to me. I'm hopeing that these pics are just not great quality and thats the problem.

        jackie, i am not a fan of receptions on the sand either...some older guests have a hard time walking on sand....BUT i think the beach house is perfect. you can totally dress it up with lanterns, luminaries, candles...it will look awesome!

          I'm thinking your right Tammy. With some small touches I think it could look really nice. I loved Rebecca's luminaries. I cant wait to start that process of wedding planning.

                It looks so beautiful...the ceremony area looks a bit small, do you know how many can they accomodate?...i am hoping for no MORE then 75 at the most...I also love the reception on the beach.... I like the whole sand effect, Im definately going to do an outside one on the sand.

                  Thats a good question. Ive never asked because I know I wont exceed 40 people and really probably it will be between 15-25.
                  You should try E-mailing Edith and asking what the maximum guest capacity is.
                  In this picture It looks like you could easily fit 75.

                    Jackie, these look great! Thanks for all the pics, I am definitely thinking of this resort too, will email Edith.

                    Why do you consider Dreams Cancun to be the 'safer' choice?? Just curious.

                    How do prices for Dreams, Grand XCaret, Grand Palladium and Moons compare??

                    I feel like I'm making progress!!! BUt maybe it's an illusion.
