      Add one more to the list. Welcome!

      We are also planning on getting married there (right now we're thinking Summer of '09, so we've got 2 years to plan!). We're heading down there in June to go check out resorts, mainly Iberostar. I'll post more after the trip...

      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          Thanks all!! We are probably going the AI route and definitely want a nice beach that has snorkeling and scuba nearby. Kid friendly is a must. Thanks for the tip about the hurricane damage, we'll have to steer clear of the sand bags!!

          Price...not sure. We want our guests to be able to stay at the resort and are thinking around $200 per person per night would be acceptable.

          Thanks again!

              I'm quite partial to the Barcelo, myself :P

              You can snorkel right off the pier there or down the far end of the beach and the ocean is great for swimming. They have an awesome kids area and club and it's pretty affordable...

                  Welcome and Congratulations! We were also looking in the Riviera Maya area but with a slimmer timeline that most have and a set wedding date that we wanted (found out Cancun/Cozume/playa del Carmen are don't do weddings on Sundays which I didn't know before) that couldn't be accomodated we ended up going with the Los Cabos area of Mexico instead. There's certainly a lot of options for you and since you're planning far enough in advance, you're sure to find just what you need. As Nini_Bride pointed out though, you'll want to consider hurricane season in your planning as well (I believe from June to late November). i don't know the intensity of how much this hits the East Coast of Mexico but it is something to look into if you're planning on having the ceremony in that time frame.

                  Good luck and have fun with the planning!

                    I just saw your slideshow and is beutiful!!
                    Hi and welcome! I got married in Riviera Maya last May at a private villa. I highly recommend it, if you want privacy with your guests. Let me know if you have any questions or want to see more pics. Here is our slideshow Riviera Maya Yucatan Mexico Destination Wedding Photography by Brian Tsai - Life Mosaics. Good luck with your planning.
