        Welcome to the forum! Good luck with the next step - it is the hardest thing in the world to pick the resort. I think it took me 6 mos, but then again we had time on our side.

        We consdiered the RM, and I really loved the Paradisus. I would check into it if I were you. It is very beautiful and is a more high end resort, but rooms start at around $300 per dbl. occupancy per night around June 1st (that was our date). May should be similar too. The resort has beautiful amenities and the wedding planning there is more sophisticated. I dealt with a planner Perla, and she was amazing at answering all of my lengthy questions. Only problem I had was that the only backup location for the reception dinner (if it rained) was a banquet room, so we were considering renting a tent as a backup option for our group of 25-40 guests. Other than that the hotel had everything I wanted, even an outdoor backup location in the gardens off the lobby for the ceremony.

        Other hotels I really liked while searching were the El Dorado hotels (seaside suites and Royale) - but these were a little more expensive and the beaches weren't as nice. I also looked into the new H10 Punta Coral/Turquesa, but had bad experiences dealing with the wedding planners there. I liked this resort though because it was beautiful and modern, and brand new... but I didn't feel confident with wedding planning there because every time I'd asK the planner a question she'd give me an answer like "we are new so I can't tell you...". I was always thinking - be creative and come up with a real answer.

        Anyways, good luck with your search. Remember once you select a place it is all down hill from here. I would suggest contacting any resorts you are interested in directly. You will quickly get a feel for the price and how helpful the planners will be.

        WELCOME.
