    Hi There,
    Maudelexx here trying plan a wedding in Mexico ( not sure where yet). We are thinking Jan 2008 somwhere that can host 30 plus room but feels more relaxed then most of the big resort hotels. So far cozumel and just recently the El Dorado looks good. Any advice at all is greatly appriciated -
    Thanks!

      Welcome to the forum! I am sure you will get the answers you need here, so just ask away! I am getting married in Puerto Vallarta, so can't help too much with either of those locations - but plenty of other girls here will be able to help.

            Wow! I cant believe how much feedback I received allready! Thank you to everybody. I have learned so much just reading over the threads. Our biggest problem so far is trying to find a resort that has rooms (around 30 maybe) and has the rustic feel we are looking for. While the big resorts are good for weddings we are looking for something more intimate. Many of our guests do not want to pay 300 a night so we are just trying to find the balence. The occidental hotels in Cozumel look good as well. Does anyone know how the food is there as its the one thing my dad is really concered about? Thank you so much again!!!!!

              Welcome! Congratulations on your engagement! I'm sure you'll find that the girls on this site are very nice and super helpful. When you say rustic feel what exactly do you mean by that? Do you want something that looks more traditional in terms of Mexican culture? Are you looking for an all inclusive. Cozumel and RM have great all-inclusive places that are smaller and very affordable. Let us know how we can help.

                Hi there my name is Shannon, Im new too..and very overwhelmed. I only joined this site for a day and have found so much useful info though, its great!!! I am looking at the Occidental in cancun area. Cozumel is very nice as well....I am trying to keep the price down, I think the Occidental hotels are great for the prices, Im not sure about the Cozumel one though.

                  Uh OH, your dads food concerns scare me a little. Only because in general unless you are willing to book one of the higher end AI, the food at AI resorts is good, but not anything to rave about. It depends what your dads concerns are; is he concerned with the variety of food, because if this is the case than you should be OK. There is alway a good variety of menu or buffet options to choose from at the AI's but... If he wants gourmet food you may have a hard time finding an AI for under 300 that has the food your looking for.

                  We had looked at both the grand Cozumel and the OGX but choose the OGX only because we had heard better things about Playe Del Carmne than Cozumel. Occidental Cozumel looks very nice though. I just really like the looks of the Occidental resorts! They all have a very nice style about them.
