    Hi everyone - I'll be traveling to RM next week and will be visiting some AIs as potential ceremony and reception sites (plus guest rooms) for a wedding in August 2009. (I know, I am sooo late...but I a work full time AND go to grad school at night...it's tough). I've received a few AI recommendations from friends/colleagues/family that have visited for vacation but no reco's for weddings. So, I decided to check with the experts...YOU!
    -Can you please advise which 3 resorts are best for a beautiful, sophisticated ceremony and reception?
    Do any of the resorts offer other ceremony venues besides the beach?

    We are expecting ~85ppl and want everyone to feel welcome and have fun.

    Any feedback is GREATLY appreciated!

      I got married at the Dreams Cancun, I would highly recommend it. Plus it sounds like you are pretty busy. You could almost get away with planning all the wedding details when you arrive beofre the wedding.

      Good Luck!

        Are you looking for a resort that's kid-friendly? Because sometimes that narrows your choices down.

          I attended a wedding at The Royal in Playa del Carmen. This is an adults only AI though. Our friends got married on the beach, but I am not sure of their other locations. They were supposed to have their reception on the beach, but due to weather it was moved to Pelicano's which actually turned out better. I stayed for a week and had a fabulous experience. The food and service was great! I really enjoyed that the resort was so close to town and not completely secluded. That gave us the opportunity to walk into town to enjoy restaurants, shopping and bars. I know they have a kid friendly location accross the street, but I cannot remember the name. Happy planning!

            Most of the big resorts offer some type of wedding package but it really all depends on what you are looking for when it comes to the details.

            I'm being biased here but Dreams Tulum was over the top fantastic! I would really recommend any of the Dreams Resorts. They have 3 standard packages that you can choose from and then add on pretty much what ever you want. Their service is impecable and I would almost go as far to say that "No" is not in their vocabulary.

            There is a Dreams in Cancun, Puerto Aventuras & Tulum right now.

            I have also heard great things about the Paridisus resorts as well.

            Good luck and let us know what you decide when you get back

              Thank you for the recommendations! I will start checking into them now. Hopefully we can visit Secrets Capri, El Dorado, The Royal, and Dreams. BTW - We are planning a wedding for adults only (and 1 13yr old cousin that will stay at another resort with her parents, if necessary).

              Also, can you recomend any wedding planners for RM or are the WC at the hotels sufficient?

                I visited about 6 resorts in late September-- My top 3(in order) were Barcelo maya, Paradisius, and Dreams Tulum. We decided to go with barcelo, because it has one of the best beaches around, and it still has that "mexican" feel to it, with the open air huts, etc. Good luck!

                  I'm sorry, I meant *Grand Palladium, not Paradisius
