    welcome to the forum and happy planning. I agree with the brides here that once you get a venue everythin will fall into place. I think a lot of people selected their dates pretty far in advance so you might not get exact date that you want, but I am sure they can work with you on the general time you wanted. Godd luck!

      I guess the hardest part is picking the venue. Think of the # of people you are having - whether you want a private reception - whether you want something that an all-inclusive wedding package or more a la carte - how far you want to be from the airport (if that matters) - and cost for your guests.

      These were the things that helped me narrow it down.

            Oh, wow, that isn't much time to plan, but you can pull it off, for sure! Good luck!

              Thanks for the responses! We are expecting around 50 people, possibly more. I e-mailed Dreams about 7 times in the last 2 weeks and I haven't gotten a response from them at all. I've been in contact with a bunch of hotels but I can't figure out the best way to go. I want a private party after the ceremony, and a lot of hotels want you to go to their inclusive rest. - not for me. Can any1 recommend a hotel that has nice private receptions? AND THANKS AGAIN!

                    I planned my Dreams Tulum wedding in 3.5 months so it's definitely do-able. check out that resort. They offer private receptions at restaurants, on the beach, or in the new conference center. There is a huge thread in the mayan riviera section about this resort.

                    If you can't get a hold of wedding coordinators by email, try phoning them, you may have to try several times before you get a hold of them but you can get a quicker, and more complete answer (the opportunity to ask for alternative dates) that way

                      Congrats and good luck on the quick wedding. I have an awesome travel agent that works with anyone across the US and always gets the BEST deals. She has setup travel arrangements and weddings for several people we have sent to her. If you are interested let me know and I will get her info for you.
