    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to say how grateful I am to all of you for all your help. I am actually not the bride, but my sister has left all of her destination wedding (Cancun) planning in my hands. This site has been so very helpful to me, so thank you all. Her date is May 28th, 2009. We have reservations at the Great Parnassus, but are having trouble getting responses from the wedding coordinator. We have just started looking this week into having the actual ceremony & reception at another site. Suggestions would be great. I have contacted JW Marriott/Casa Magna, but haven't gotten a response for the date. Thanks again guys!!

      Welcome to the forum! What a great sister you are to help out in such a huge way!

      There are so many great resorts in the cancun/riviera maya area, and there are tons of reviews about them on the site here - just search around.

      As far as slow response time goes, you can expect that from many resorts in Mexico.

      Good luck with the planning!

        Nathaniel,

        That's what big sisters are for I suppose. The wedding coordinator started out answering all of our questions very promptly, but now I seemed to have stumped her (asking about a private reception vs. a priority dinner reservation at one of the rest.) Oh well, hopefully I will find a better location anyway (sister really didn't want to have to drag her dress through the sand anyway.) Have a great day!!!

                Hi!

                We are getting married in Playa Del Carmen May 20th, 2009 and are using Caribbean Blue Weddings. I have been emailing Irene and she is always prompt and helpful. I haven't had any difficulties (fingers crossed) yet. We're (including all of our guests) staying at the Paradisus Riviera Maya but will be leaving the resort to got to Playa for the wedding.

                Here's their webpage:
