I know this has been said before, but this place is magical. The grounds are beautiful, the chapel is sooo pretty, the ocean is breath-taking. The restaurants are really cool. Here are some pictures we took, but they don't do the place any justice... there is a post somewhere with pictures taken by delsol photography, that will give you a better feel as to what a wedding will look like there.
this is the entrance for the wedding guests and bride and groom
pictures of the chapel
if you dont want to get married in the chapel, there's always the ocean, providing the tide is low....
Dos Playas restaurant option for reception
La Isla restaurant option for reception. My favorite as you can tell

We stayed at the Azul Beach resort and loved the boutique hotel feel. There's only 98 rooms at this resort and our stay there was beyond what we expected. Everyone was extremely nice and more than willing to do whatever possible to make our stay there a nice one. Food was extremely good, the Asian restaurant being our favorite. Azul was the perfect rustic-chic style we had been looking for... However a couple of the cons of this hotel, the rooms there are very very small and pretty basic. My Fiance and I were basically struggling for room in the morning to get ready. So if you stay here, I suggest getting an upgraded room. As much as we loved the quiet relaxed vibe of this hotel, I think it might be to quiet for us. Not that we're a wild and crazy bunch, lol... but I do want to have a fun wedding reception with tons of music and dancing...
ok, I truly had to kick FI out of this area all the time... It's way to small.
amazing view from our room
looooooved the beach beds
private dinner on the beach... we should have definitely done this, but we had no time
the very small wave lounge. I think it could work perhaps for a cocktail hour
Ok, so I lied... this is the only glimpse of a wedding we had all week

BBQ on the beach... the food was really good
They go fishing on Fridays and grill their catch right on the beach... Unfortunately we had to leave for the airport before lunch time :
Asian restaurant... we loved the sushi
ok, so I had to post this... there is a nudist resort right next door... They aren't allowed on the azul property but if you don't want to run into this, just don't take a walk to the right of the resort....

First off, XCarat Park would be breathtaking for a wedding and I can only imagine $$$! It was really fun to see wedding option pics from there!
I totally know what you mean about Azul Beach! We loved the look and feel of the resort, but the rooms stink and we were in a "larger one". We didn't have a chance to see the suite but it is very nice and the only way to go for a wedding IMO. We also thought that it might be a little too quiet and too small.
I think the Paradisus is a strong choice for a wedding. We liked the size of the resrt, the pools and the rooms. However we thought food and drinks were better at Azul.
Like you we wanted to pick and choose what parts we like and create our own perfect resort. That is what lead us to booking at Azul Sensatori. It is not open yet, but I think it will be a great mix of what we are going for.
Dreams Cancun also looks great, but my fiance is a and didn't want to be married at a place called "dreams". I was mad at him for a few days because I thought that was the dumbest thing I have ever heard and Dreams Resorts get rave reviews for weddings. But it's his wedding too, right?
Beach Palace looks great too!
So many choices!!!!
Have fun deciding!

These site reviews and pictures are so amazing and helpful!
After looking at all of them I think I like the Paradisus myself, but I have looked into the reception options and it seems too expensive for my budget since I'm planning on bringing a group of at least 40 with me and want a private reception with dinner and dancing and drinks all night!

I am getting married at the Moon Palace on August 11, 2008.
We're getting married in the Bugambilia gazebo and our wedding dinner is inside at the Steakhouse.
I am happy to hear that there will be a lot for my guests to do while they are there!!!
So, all in all... did you like the Moon Palace?
