I was just married in Tulum, so I don't qualify for the 2010 thread, but I was exactly where all of you were a year ago. I've made three trips down to the Cancun/Tulum area in the last year and have visited almost every resort and boutique hotel between Maroma and Tulum.
I ended up in Tulum, away from the resorts. All of my guests were well traveled outdoorsmen and would have been disappointed if I would have sent them to a resort that could have been duplicated in San Diego or Vegas. We were the only ones on the beach for our ceremony and had the reception in a mansion built by the infamous drug loard, Pablo Escobar. It was a truly intimate and authentic experience. Drop me a line if you want to run your ideas past me.
Here are pics from my wedding.

I recommend using the advertisement at the top of the page for TA's. I think that they all specialize in destination weddings, and if they are not available they refer you to someone else who also specializes in destination weddings. I was lucky to find someone who was able to get me a good deal with Moon Palace, which is the original resort I wanted. It's still expensive, but I am happy with my TA so far. Let me know if you want her information.

We are planning on getting married in May 2010 and I can't seem to find the perfect place. Do any of you have a wedding coordinator/destination travel agent that you are using and highly recommend? I am having troubles finding a "reliable" agent to help me get rid of the stress.

I am a teacher also, so my FI and I will be getting married the week of July 4th 2010. We have not decided on a Destination yet! We are either going to tie the knot in Jamaica or Mexico! I have been looking at reviews from resorts, I thought that would help narrow my search, but it hasn't. We know we don't want to get married on the beach and we do want an AI for guest. We have decided on the Passport save the dates my mom will be taking on the project as a DIY. Congrats to everyone and I hope this process gets a lot easier for all of us! Thanks for the thread!
