My fiancee and I are hoping to get married the first week of July, 2010 (we are teachers... need to go during the summer) on the Mayan Riviera. We are pretty overwhelmed right now trying to pick a resort. We are currently looking into the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumel/Coba. Has anyone had experience with this resort?
Also, we are trying to get a travel agent or someone to help us. Has anyone here used destinationweddings.com? It seems like a pretty full service website, they act as a travel agent, booking flights for you and your guests, coordinating with the resort, and setting up a wedding website. We are thinking of using them because we really want someone who knows what they are doing to help us.
I've been using Marissa Bauzon at Flight Center - Fairview in Vancouver. She's had some experiences with DW before and is getting a ton more experience through mine, as I'm getting married in Feb 2010, so I'm sure she can answer alot of your questions. However, that destination weddings website sounds AMAZING because of the fact that they co-ordinate with the resorts, etc. That is a lot of work to do on your own, so if you can afford it I would get someone to do it for you and just sit back and relax!
