pick a location

The only things that we're looking for in our destination wedding are:
- must allow children
- tropical destination
- all inclusive hotel
- I'd like to go to a place that isn't a bigger hotel chain or a big vacation spot, so no casinos, we'd like to avoid the crowd if possible.
I hope some of you can provide me with some insight with your own experiences.

I've been to Mexico, and stayed at a Palace Resort, that's why we choose it.
The Moon Palace is HUGE. It's AI and is kid friendly, they have play areas and things for them to do.
Most of the reason we choose the Moon Palace is because we've stayed at the Cancun Palace before, so we know what we're getting. And if our guests stay 3 or more nights, certain excursions are included.
As far as avoiding crowds...Don't plan for a time when school is out! Avoid that week off in February (in NYC anyway) and spring break time/summer vacation.
Try not to get overwhelmed!!!!!!

We decided on the timing first - once we knew we wanted end of November we started looking at pricing of the 10 or so resorts. For us one big item was that we wanted a resort that only does one wedding a day - there are a limited number of AI's that do one a day so we were able to narrow it down that way. Then we looked at prices of the top 5 or so.
We were down in Mexio this past fall for a wedding and went to look at the Grand Palladium, Riu Riviera, Dreams Cancun, Bahia Principe and Paradisus which were our top five and ended up with Paradisus.
Hope that helps!
